How many times have you heard that we have only ten years to save the climate before catastrophic consequences?
If you've been paying attention to the media over the last twenty years, it would be... at least a few times.
But a new Fraser Institute study out today finds that the repetitious 10-years-to-save-the-climate claim is based on flawed forecasting and distracts from real solutions.
The study explains there is considerable real-world data for the last twenty years that allows for comparisons between what was expected (i.e. forecasted) versus what actually happened. And in case after case, the main models being used to forecast the future climate have proven inaccurate and unreliable.
The study goes on to explain that the over-reaction to and over-reliance on these flawed models results in policy recommendations and decisions that miss more effective solutions – particularly those related to adaptation to a changing climate.
