Maybe Uncle Bob was one-hundred percent right ...

You may have heard earlier this month that global warming is now likely to take a break for a decade or more. There will be no more warming until 2015, perhaps later.

Climate scientist Noel Keenlyside, leading a team from Germany's Leibniz Institute of Marine Science and the Max Planck Institute of Meteorology, for the first time entered verifiable data on ocean circulation cycles into one of the U. N.'s climate supercomputers, and the machine spit out a projection that there will be no more warming for the foreseeable future.

Of course, Mr. Keenlyside-- long a defender of the man-made global warming theory -- was quick to add that after 2015 (or perhaps 2020), warming would resume with a vengeance.

Climate alarmists the world over were quick to add that they had known all along there would be periods when the Earth's climate would cool even as the overall trend was toward dangerous climate change.

Sorry, but that is just so much backfill.

There may have been the odd global-warming scientist in the past decade who allowed that warming would pause periodically in its otherwise relentless upward march, but he or she was a rarity.

If anything, the opposite is true: Almost no climate scientist who backed the alarmism ever expected warming would take anything like a 10 or 15-year hiatus.

Last year, in its oft-quoted report on global warming, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted a 0.3-degree C rise in temperature in the coming decade -- not a cooling or even just temperature stability.

In its previous report in 2001, the IPCC prominently displaced the so-called temperature "hockey stick" that purported to show temperature pretty much plateauing for the thousand years before 1900, then taking off in the 20th Century in a smooth upward line. No 10-year dips backwards were foreseen.

It is drummed into us, ad nauseum, that the IPCC represents 2,500 scientists who together embrace a "consensus" that man-made global warming is a "scientific fact;" and as recently as last year, they didn't see this cooling coming. So the alarmists can't weasel out of this by claiming they knew all along such anomalies would occur.

This is not something any alarmist predicted, and it showed up in none of the UN's computer projections until Mr. Keenlyside et al. were finally able to enter detailed data into their climate model on past ocean current behaviour.

Less well-known is that global temperatures have already been falling for a decade. All of which means, that by 2015 or 2020, when warming is expected to resume, we will have had nearly 20 years of fairly steady cooling.

Saints of the new climate religion, such as Al Gore, have stated that eight of the 10 years since 1998 are the warmest on record. Even if that were true, none has been as warm as 1998, which means the trend of the past decade has been downward, not upward.

Last year, for instance, saw a drop in the global average temperature of nearly 0.7 degrees C (the largest single-year movement up or down since global temperature averages have been calculated). Despite advanced predictions that 2007 would be the warmest year on record, made by such UN associates as Britain's Hadley Centre, a government climate research agency, 2007 was the coolest year since at least 1993.

According to the U. S. National Climatic Data Center, the average temperature of the global land surface in January 2008 was below the 20th-Century mean for the first time since 1982.

Also in January, Southern Hemisphere sea ice coverage was at its greatest summer level (January is summer in the Southern Hemisphere) in the past 30 years.

Neither the 3,000 temperature buoys that float throughout the world's oceans nor the eight NASA satellites that float above our atmosphere have recorded appreciable warming in the past six to eight years.

Even Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the IPCC, reluctantly admitted to Reuters in January that there has been no warming so far in the 21st Century.

Does this prove that global warming isn't happening, that we can all go back to idling our SUVs 24/7? No. But it should introduce doubt into the claim that the science of global warming is "settled."

Thank you for this.

Maybe it is just sheer luck but my theory on global warming seems to be very true.

Global warming =/= truth, facts or evidence

Global warming = hidden agenda, $$$$$$ politic$ & more $$$$$$

Global warming is nothing more than a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Is it complete bull$h!? For the most part, yes, but there is some good that has come from it.

I've never believed in global warming...I've laughed at those who do. The sun goes through phases. It has much more impact on our temperature than any human-induced global warming can every achieve. The sun goes through cycles every 11 years in regards to its sunspots (Scwabe cycle). More sunspots = more energy, and throughout the next 11 years the sunspots slowly decrease. A new cycle begins when the average number of sunspots on year is greater than the year before it. Scwabe cycles are known to get less intense over periods of many year, as that is part of another much more vast cycle...one which affected the 1700's in what is known as the Maunder Minimum. A mini ice-age if you will. Believe it or not, we are headed into a global cooling trend as the next couple decades will most likely prove. Get out your parkas. :AH-HA_wink:

Guys, finding and reading this article has made my great day go out on a great note. I now have a truckload of crow ready to go for one of my teachers, who highly advocates Mr. Al Gore and the theory of Global Warming.

Now, I am not saying that pollution does not have detrimental effects on the environment. It does. Air pollution leads to health problems, acid rain, and so forth. Land pollution comes back to haunt us with a poisoned water supply. But what upsets me is that the fact it has been blown totally and completely out of proportion for political agendas. We now have a man with Nobel Peace Prizes because he has forced his agenda laden with his brand of psuedo-environmentalism down the throat of politics and the American people as a result, a man who is essentially a fraud and is not deserving of the merit he has been given.

I hope to god it just keeps cooling down after their so called "15 year hiatus" passes so that these environmentalist poseurs will be exiled out of the scientific community as well as the political community.

The whole Global Warming deal is so politicized that the rhetoric is near-poisonous. I too, was under the impression that we were headed for a cooling, because that's what I was taught in school.

Although I hope that one day in the future that we will be laughing at the 'Global Warming' hysteria, I still think that we should be looking at our ecological footprint, and look for ways to minimize our environmental damage.

just like the laugh we had at the 70's global cooling scare...

We're just human, we still know $h! compared to how everything works.

Eventhough global warming is bullsh*t... And it is.

I still don't think much can be done to sway public opinion. The ignorant masses have found something else to panic about (Think: Cold War, Communism, Witches) And as such, the elite of our now global society have found something that will 'keep the masses under control'. Nothing more than good 'ole Conflict Theory in Sociology; the elite control the masses through policy, lies and limiting freedom.

Think of it like this; GM now makes some of the best cars in the world, yet the ignorant masses still believe exactly the opposite because they are TOLD to do so. People could be freezing their asses off in Mexico and would still believe in global warming because they have been cognitively conditioned to do so.

Absolutely.

Want proof?

You won't find any of the prominent wackos using the term "global warming" any longer. They are now using "climate change" to cover their asses as global temperatures drop. New name - same load of BS.

Not to take the wind out of your sails... but....

my daily driver: 7.0 liter V8

wife's car: 5.7 liter V8

my "toy" 6.0 liter V8

company car: 4.6 liter V8

Thats 23.3 liters spread amongst four cars. By "big" did you

mean the Pontiac's 3.8 liter V6 or the Chevy's 3.4 liter? :wink:

Weather and Climate are sciences. Not politics.

Weather and Climate are young sciences. How to respond to weather and climate IS politics.

For the record, the scientific community collectively bang their heads on the wall when scientific theory is confused with "theory" in common usage.

Awesome, now we can all pollute as much as we want! </sarcasm>

C'mon my friend, you know we don't feel that way just because we think that the global warming hysteria is BS.

It's about time the global warming fad ends.

We have more to worry about from the next ice age than we do global warming. If you think 3°C hotter than normal is bad, try 8°C below normal. The scary part is that, the next one is right around the corner! Oh no! I wonder how the media will deal with the impending ice age?

I just realized a global cooling will really, really suck for Canada.

Perfectly aware of the age of weather and climate (~<150 years old) . There are so many big problems in the USA and Canada that it seems like mental masturbation for politicians to take on a problem that scientists are more equipped to educate the world on.

the local paper had an uproarius article they posted on their web site last night about a local weather man who basically went on record saying a similar thing. within a couple hours there were over 500 comments either from libbers wanting to hang the guy or from common folks like the rest of us who know GW was a crock and a way to take away liberties and know that Gore is a fraud.

Think Gore should go to court, or at best give back the Nobel Prize and all the money he's profited from this?
