Over 600 Things Caused By Global Warming

John Brignell is a Brit with a PhD from the University of London. He's an electrical engineer who has done research, design work, consulting, and teaching.

He's become an expert in the art of using statistics to mislead, especially when done by politicians and the media. Dr Brignell's authored two books on the subject and gives lectures for companies like Lloyds of London on the misuse and abuse of statistics.

He also maintains a neat little website called Numbers Watch. He describes it as, "devoted to the monitoring of the misleading numbers that rain down on us via the media. Whether they are generated by Single Issue Fanatics (SIFs), politicians, bureaucrats, quasi-scientists (junk, pseudo- or just bad), such numbers swamp the media, generating unnecessary alarm and panic. They are seized upon by media, hungry for eye-catching stories. There is a growing band of people whose livelihoods depend on creating and maintaining panic. There are also some who are trying to keep numbers away from your notice and others who hope that you will not make comparisons. Their stock in trade is the gratuitous lie. The aim here is to nail just a few of them."

I found one page fascinating. It's a list of some 600+ problems attributed to global warming. All are hyperlinked. It helps illustrate the utter ridiculous nature of global warming hysteria. Check it out...
