7 years’ global cooling on all measures
CO2 concentration is rising, but still well below IPCC predictions
IPCC predicts rapid, exponential CO2 growth that is not occurring
The 29-year global warming trend is just 2.5 °F (1.5 °C) per century
A long, fast decline: 7 years’ global cooling at 3.6 °F (2 °C) / century
All global surface temperature datasets show seven years’ cooling
Sea level: the “Armageddon scenario” is not occurring
Arctic sea-ice extent has scarcely declined in the 29 years since 1980
Antarctic sea-ice extent reached a 30-year peak in late 2007
The regular “heartbeat” of global sea-ice extent: steady for 30 years
Hurricane, typhoon, & tropical cyclone activity are at a record low
Proof that CO2’s warming effect is exaggerated
Your climate-sensitivity ready reckoner
