The GWPF – We Have A Winner: Climate’s Tallest Tale 2018

Posted: January 18, 2019 by oldbrew in alarmism, climate, humour


We asked you to nominate the wackiest climate stories of the year, says The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF).

You didn’t let us down. Before Christmas, we asked GWPF readers to send us nominations for our search to find the tallest climate tale of 2018.

It’s fair to say that there was a lot of competition, with the catastrophe mongers across the media clearly working hard to ensure that they were in the running for this much sought-after accolade.

We particularly enjoyed L. Robertson’s ‘Climate change, weather and road deaths’, a paper in the journal Injury Prevention, which declared that rising concentrations of greenhouse gases was going to cause a rising death toll on the roads unless governments put in ‘major mitigating countermeasures’.

We also liked the story from the Daily Mail, which alleged that a small rise in global temperatures would make people more likely to wet the bed and might also trigger plagues of ticks, snakes and…erm…voles.

An honourable mention for creative headline writing goes to the subs at BehaviouralEcology.net, who had the brass neck to write a story about polar bear research and then stick a headline on the top that suggested that global warming was going to make men’s willies shrink. Charles Dickens they are not.

    Oldbrew, they already are. Look at what liberalism/progressivism has done to once mighty and successful nations. Just in Africa alone we’ve got what were highly successful countries turned into crapholes to appease the whining maggots of ‘social justice’. America and Britain are turning into dystopian disasters while chasing the false hope of Utopia snake oil being sold by leftists and idiots. The AGW farce is merely a facet of the Stupid arising around the world.

    I put it down to too many stupid people voting. On another blog they went to a supposedly top dog college and asked the students to define ‘toxic masculinity’ once the student bleated that it was really bad they were challenged to define it. All the interviewer got was stuttering nonsense.

    Those who advance the argument of man made global warming always have a disclaimer up their sleeve. The North Pole ice cap was supposed to disappear in 2013. 6 Years later, it’s growing. However, the triple digit heat in Australia will now be the latest “proof” of the threat of climate change – duh – the climate always changes. A fundamentalist will tell you that “God is in control” if a someone recovers from an illness. If the person dies, “God has a plan..”. So – blizzards, droughts, severe hot or cold is caused by ……. Climate Change. It must be awesome to be right regardless of what happens.
