Kids: This is the sort of chart you should NOT include in your Geography GCSE coursework on the settled science of global warming. You see it is a bit of an inconvenient truth. Instead I suggest you show links to all those breathless BBC and Channel 4 fake News reports about Aussie bush fires in the past couple of years which you can cite as “evidence” of global warming as the broadcasters did. Or alternatively, if you care about facts rather than just getting an A* with some fake news…

as someone who believes that sun spot activity is critical to the earth’s temperature I rather fear that we should all be stocking up on our thermal underwaer. But that is not what is taught in Geography GCSE or what the BBC lectures with us as “settled science.” The global warmists like Greta Thunberg believe that increased carbon levels caused by many’s activity will lead to higher temperatures. This is a prediction ( ie what will happen) but is stated as a fact (what has happened). Anyone who challenges this world view is slated as akin to a holocaust denier. Indeed I remember some Guardian reading fanatatic screaming those exact words to myself and uncle Christopher Booker as we did a presentation many years ago. But there is a little inconvenient truth, i.e the facts.
