Many biological and geophysical systems are claimed to be under threat of major change due to ‘Climate Change‘. Apart from outright fabrication and lie, the claims are generally shown to be false when the data is examined. This is the case when full data sets rather than ‘cherry-picked’ subsets are examined. This article corrects some of these misrepresentations.

Coral Reef Destruction

One of the early but continuing claims is that global warming is killing (bleaching) coral reefs. In particular, the Great Barrier Reef has been singled out. In fact, data from the Australian Institute of Marine Science as reported by Peter Ridd[1] shows coral cover extent at the greatest since records began to be ept.
