Lomborg-errors: "Cool it!"
|Home Cool it|
Glaciers worldwide have been receding at an accelerating pace during recent decades, concomitant with the general rise in air temperatures worldwide. Lomborg manages to shift focus completely away from this fact, by various distracting excursions. First, he writes about glacier movements several thousand years ago, which is not very relevant to the issue of modern global warming. Second, he omits mentioning of the recent acceleration. Third, he points to changes in precipitation rather than changes in temperature in those cases where it fits his agenda, and only those. Fourth, he mentions only one tropical glacier where recession is due to reduced snowfall, and omits mentioning of all other tropical glaciers, where changes in temperature play a (small or large) role.
