The New York Times has been caught warning of a “fake climate crisis” that is supposedly putting the fish in our oceans in grave danger, warned attorney James Taylor in PA Pundits.
The Heartland Institute’s environmental and energy policy researcher said the article published by the New York daily on Nov. 29 lacks objectivity.
The New York Times specified that climate change is causing fish to “swim for their lives” toward the poles in search of colder waters, in an attempt to escape the fatal fate of warm water containing less oxygen.
“In the tropics, this issue [warming water temperatures] is especially acute because, as fish head toward the poles, they aren’t replaced, creating a food vacuum,” The New York Times wrote.
“In some tropical countries, which emit a tiny fraction of greenhouse gases compared with countries farther north, fish provide as much as 70 percent of people’s nutrition according to the Food and Agriculture Organization,” it added.
However, according to Taylor, the situation would be quite different based on the historical records and graphs on world fish production published by the World Bank.
One of the graphs shows that fish catches not only did not fall in the open sea but tripled from 1960 to 1995, and have since remained at such high levels.
Fisheries production in managed systems also tripled since 1995 and even shows a clear upward trend, according to another World Bank graph.
So, the two graphs together show that world fish production continues to reach new records almost every year, Taylor said.
“If global warming is making it hard for fish to breathe, live, and sustain the fishing industry—as the New York Times asserts—that certainly isn’t showing up in global fish production numbers,” he concluded.
Climate Summit in Madrid
Despite the facts described, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), made up of a group of governmental and civil organizations, presented the same arguments as The New York Times on Dec. 7 at the U.N. conference on climate change in Madrid.
“The review report, Ocean deoxygenation: Everyone’s problem, is the largest peer-reviewed study so far into the causes, impacts, and possible solutions to ocean deoxygenation,” IUCN said.
For this reason, world leaders will meet again in June 2020 at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille, said IUCN Director Minna Epps, to raise funds for “restoring ocean health.”
An invention of politicians and elites
It should be remembered that Patrick Moore, co-founder and former president of Greenpeace, denounced weeks ago that both the narrative of man-made global warming and the arguments of “climate change” are an invention of politicians and elites to control the population.
“Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign,” he said, stating, “There is no stronger motivation than fear and guilt.”
And Moore is not alone, 31,487 American scientists, including 9,029 with doctorates, signed a petition called the Global Warming Petition Project to demonstrate that the claim of “settled science” and an overwhelming “consensus” in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming hypothesis is wrong.
“The catastrophic decline in polar bears numbers we were promised in 2007 failed to materialize,” pointed out Susan Crockford, zoologist and author of the new book “The Polar Bear Catastrophe That Never Happened.” “The polar bear population seems to have quadrupled,” she added.
The Global Warming Petition Project is only circulated in the United States. According to the website the signatories are approved for inclusion in the Petition Project list if they have obtained formal educational degrees at the level of Bachelor of Science or higher in appropriate scientific fields. The website goes into great detail about the qualifications of the signatories and can be read here.
