Fact 1: The Atlantic has the biggest impact on our climate. Met Eireann recently published a paper which stated that the changing temperature of the Atlantic, known as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) explains over 90% of the variation in Ireland’s land temperatures and rainfall.
Fact 2: There is no evidence that CO2 has had an impact on our climate. The raw temperature data from Valentia Observatory was adjusted by the climate change panel. The graph they came up with shows the 1880 to 1920 period to be cooler than it was. These adjustments make no sense as the urban heating effect doesn’t take place on Valentia
