One of the world’s biggest scientific publishers has retracted a journal article that claimed to have found no evidence of a climate crisis.
Springer Nature said it had retracted the article, by four Italian physicists, after an internal investigation found the conclusions were “not supported by available evidence or data provided by the authors”.
Now, if that’s true, no evidence, then it should be withdrawn.
The article claimed to have analysed data to find no trend in rainfall extremes, floods, droughts and food productivity.
“In conclusion on the basis of observational data, the climate crisis that, according to many sources, we are experiencing today, is not evident yet,” the article said.
But there is a thought that it’s convenient to the narrative that it should be withdrawn, no?
That there is no – as yet – climate crisis does seem to be true after all.
