Drudge linked to an article by Graham Lloyd, environment editor of, The Australian, headed: “Twenty-year hiatus in rising temperatures has climate scientists puzzled.”
Lloyd begins by stating “But the fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.”
He goes on to report that, “Research by Ed Hawkins of University of Reading shows surface temperatures since 2005 are already at the low end of the range projections derived from 20 climate models and if they remain flat, they will fall outside the models' range within a few years.”
He adds that: “The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations," says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation. If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change."
And then the best part: “Whitehouse argues that whatever has happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation because the pause in temperature rise has occurred despite a sharp increase in global carbon emissions.”
So, as I’ve been repeating, and repeating and repeating for years now. This whole global warming scam is a crock, always was and obviously now, always will be. But, what I truly don’t understand is why folks simply sit there and let these thieves rip them off without a peep when folks like AlGore soak them like P.T. Barnum fleeced the sheep attending his shows.
Along the same lines was a short item on The Blog from the Weekly Standard, also via Drudge, which I copied in total because it’s right on the mark. (No pun Intended)
“Bjorn Lomborg claimed on John Stossel's television show last night that money isn't being spent well to combat "global warming"
"The Germans are spending about $110 billion on subsidies for these solar panels," said Lomborg. "The net effect of all those investments will be to postpone global warming by 37 hours by the end of the century."
"All those billions, for 37 hours delay?," asked Stossel.
"Yeah," said Lomborg, "so remember them in [the year] 2100 and say, 'Wow.'"
Stossel clarified, "You believe in global warming and man-made--"
"Global warming is real," said Lomborg, "and it is we need to fix. But we should fix it smartly, and not in a very, very costly way as we're doing it now. Germany is probably spending $660 for every ton of CO2 they're cutting."
So, here again we have a case adding evidence to the incredible overreaction to natural trends that have been ebbing and flowing for countless eons. And even supposing that man’s efforts to change something as overwhelming as patterns of weather worked occasionally here and there, there are so many other uncontrollable factors involved in what causes temperature fluctuation, I doubt the most advanced computer technology in the world could figure it out.
And the only thing I know for sure is, tomorrow’s April 1st and I’m still wearing my heaviest coat to go out, cause it’s freezing cold around here.
That’s it for today folks.
