Christmas Competition: The Tallest Climate Tales Of 2018

December 19, 2018

By Paul Homewood


Xmas fun from the GWPF:


We at the Global Warming Policy Forum like to keep a close eye on what the press and the broadcast media have to say about global warming science. Some of it is, it’s fair to say, pretty far removed from anything a reasonable person would recognise as, well, science. We had a very apt example, just this week, with the BBC caught making up spurious “facts” about penguins in Africa.

With the season of goodwill and merriment upon us, we thought it would be fun to celebrate the dedicated work of our friends in green public relations. We are therefore inviting you to take part in our special competition, with a chance to win some excellent prizes.  Simply tell us about what you think was the tallest green tale of 2018, and explain to us why it was so daft.

Nominations together with rebuttals should be emailed to

Deadline: 31 December 2018.

Prize: Two GWPF books (Group Think and Population Bombed) plus a bottle of House of Lords whisky.

The GWPF team will decide the winner of the competition early in in the new year.

Good luck, and Merry Christmas!

The Forum team


Runners up will receive a bottle of Chateau Homewood mention on Notalotofpeopleknowthat.

    Should we leave off the entire IPCC report and anyone who reported on it just because I am sure there has to be too many of those!

      Is David still around? He was advocating killing off people for population reduction. I burned his book from a PBS series on my brush pile 2 years ago–returned it to the CO2.

    One of my favorites is the family who wanted to sail through the ice-free Arctic and got about 3 feet before being forced to turn back due to the ice.

    I’ve sent one in about the climate peril faced by the swallowtail butterfly in Norfolk. (A little too local to take the prize, but it’s an interesting tale nonetheless).
