Both sides of the debate agree on this chart. But they disagree on the analysis.
Make of that what you will.
I can't read that unfortunately, two reasons, eyesight and lack of knowledge around graphs.
However if I understand what I am looking at the temperature is suddenly vertical.
I do have a rudimentary understanding of the arguments for global warming however, and understand the cause and significance is what is debated.
As we wait for the predicted severe Cyclone Gabrielle, yet again we are told this is a significant within a century time span, it is a big storm.
I trust what I see with my own eyes, I see the media have moved from pandemics to Weather headlining.
As with the pandemic, at some stage the Media will lose interest.
I would not say they are overstating the risk or dramatizing it, because our country and largest city is sitting vulnerable after the shock flash floods that killed people and continue to see stuff fall off cliffs.
It is a strange time. Before Covid we had countless false alarms (I use that term false loosely, I have no problem with alarms they serve to prepare people, and I tend to be happy when they don't come to the worst).
But we had bird and swine flu, we had SARS 1 etc. Then the big one did hit.
With the weather, we have had hundreds of false alarms, then a big one hit recently, now we wait for more hits...indeed it is a strange time...doing some sand bagging tomorrow, I gotta say that is new for me....
