You may recall the BBC’s Royal Institution Christmas Lecture on, yes you’ve guessed it, climate change. It presented this graph purportedly proving that temperature changes (yellow) followed CO2 changes (white):

As I pointed out at the time, the bits of string were horridly fake and misleading.

Perhaps, instead of treating children like, well children, they might have given them the facts:

This is all highly technical, apart from the last sentence. But the Conclusions do not beat around the bush:

“Atmospheric concentration of CO2 is not correlated with temperature.”

“The absence of correlation proves conclusively the absence of causality “

It can’t be any clearer than that.

I think the BBC owes its audience an abject apology for misleading them so seriously. And perhaps next time they should get a proper scientist to host their Christmas Lecture.
