Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Global “warming” has stopped

Trolls, commies hardest hit. Excerpt:

A year ago tomorrow, just before the opening of the UN Copenhagen world climate summit, the British Meteorological Office issued a confident prediction. The mean world temperature for 2010, it announced, ‘is expected to be 14.58C, the warmest on record’ – a deeply worrying 0.58C above the 1961 – 1990 average.

World temperatures, it went on, were locked inexorably into an everrising trend: ‘Our experimental decadal forecast confirms previous indications that about half the years 2010-2019 will be warmer than the warmest year observed so far – 1998.’

But buried amid the details of those two Met Office statements 12 months apart lies a remarkable climbdown that has huge implications – not just for the Met Office, but for debate over climate change as a whole.

Read carefully with other official data, they conceal a truth that for some, to paraphrase former US VicePresident Al Gore, is really inconvenient: for the past 15 years, global warming has stopped.

Actually, with the exception of 1998 – a ‘blip’ year when temperatures spiked because of a strong ‘El Nino’ effect (the cyclical warming of the southern Pacific that affects weather around the world) – the data on the Met Office’s and CRU’s own websites show that global temperatures have been flat, not for ten, but for the past 15 years.

They go up a bit, then down a bit, but those small rises and falls amount to less than their measuring system’s acknowledged margin of error. They have no statistical significance and reveal no evidence of any trend at all.

And those “rising” sea levels?  Yeah, not so much.

You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear this whole global “warming” (aka “climate change” when it’s too friggin’ cold to say “global warming” with a straight face) is s junk science fad meant to steal money from producing nations in a big socialist redistribution plot.

  1. What is so alarming about “Global Warming” anyway. I don’t mind warmer winters. I hate cold weather. That is why I would rather live in the Southwestern United States than in North Dakota or Nebraska.
