Extreme Weather Not Linked to Global Warming Say Friends of Science

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 4, 2013) - A new report entitled "The Global Warming-Extreme Weather Link: A Review of the State of Science" by former Environment Canada researcher Dr. Madhav Khandekar is challenging assumptions about extreme weather. The report was published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation of the UK November 27, 2013.

"Extreme weather events captured on television are often automatically linked to 'global warming' by media pundits," says Ken Gregory, research director of Friends of Science. "As shown in the Khandekar report no scientific evidence supports these assumptions."

Gregory points out, "For example, the City of Calgary's GHG Reduction Plan claims it is... 'minimizing...climate change and ...severe weather events.' None of these statements are founded on scientific evidence, yet this misinformation is driving city planning."

Severe weather has not been exacerbated by the warming that stopped in 1998. Britain's Sunday Telegraph reports climate change policies will cost taxpayers more than £80 billion by the end of the decade. Canada pulled out of Kyoto in 2011 to avoid $14 billion in penalties.

Friends of Science have spent a decade reviewing a broad spectrum of literature on climate change and have concluded the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2).
