Here’s the truth about climate change: The nominal 0.7 degree Celsius increase in mean temperature over the last fifty-or-so years is, at best, inconclusive. The average volume and severity of hurricanes hasn’t gotten worse, despite predictions to the contrary. Much of the world has actually been trending cooler for the last few years.
