Catastrophic weather events not caused by ‘human influence’: Professor Koonin

Most of the extreme weather events that the media and public are so focused on possesses no evidence of “human influence”, according to Former US Undersecretary for Science Professor Steven Koonin. “Almost all my belief is founded upon reading the UN IPCC reports and similar reports by the US government and then looking at the underlying research literature,” he said. “According to the reports… most of the extreme weather events that the public and the media are so focused on do not show any evidence of human influence. “So for example, the report’s saying and again this is the consensus science talking … there are no detectable human influences on hurricanes over the last 100 years. In the US, heatwaves, are no more common now than they were in 1900 and have not gone up in incidents over the last 60 years. “Wildfires around the ground have gone down by about 25 per cent since 2003. And yes last year 2020 saw terrible fires in Australia and in California here in the US – but in fact, 2020 globally was one of the least active fire years on record. “While the globe has warmed significantly – we’ve not seen any changes in these kinds of events that at least we can detect and say are there with confidence.”
