We have been telling anyone who will listen that the world stopped warming about 1998, or so, and that we are now trending toward another little ice age.
Environmentalists are red-faced. It is their day in the barrel! We debunkers are laughing our bippies off!
Reuters is reporting: “Scientists are struggling to explain a slowdown in climate change that has exposed gaps in their understanding and defies a rise in global greenhouse gas emissions.
Often focused on century-long trends, most climate models failed to predict that the temperature rise would slow, starting around 2000. Scientists are now intent on figuring out the causes and determining whether the respite will be brief or a more lasting phenomenon.
Getting this right is essential for the short and long-term planning of governments and businesses ranging from energy to construction, from agriculture to insurance. Many scientists say they expect a revival of warming in coming years.
Theories for the pause include that deep oceans have taken up more heat with the result that the surface is cooler than expected, that industrial pollution in Asia or clouds are blocking the sun, or that greenhouse gases trap less heat than previously believed.
The change may be a result of an observed decline in heat-trapping water vapor in the high atmosphere, for unknown reasons. It could be a combination of factors or some as yet unknown natural variations, scientists say.” SOURCE: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/16/us-climate-slowdown-idUSBRE93F0AJ20130416
See what I mean? They’re tying themselves into knots as they attempt to cover their derrières! It is priceless!
Hey! Remember how we were told the Himalayan glaciers were melting and would soon be completely gone? Well, check this: “Some experts say their trust in climate science has declined because of the many uncertainties. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had to correct a 2007 report that exaggerated the pace of melt of the Himalayan glaciers and wrongly said they could all vanish by 2035.” SOURCE: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/16/us-climate-slowdown-idUSBRE93F0AJ20130416
There are some environmental “experts” trying to figure out why there is now MORE sea ice in winter. Seems to me, I recall them telling us the sea ice was melting, especially at the poles. Turns out not to be correct.
Do you remember how we were told that so-called “superstorm” Sandy was a result of melting arctic ice? Oh yes, we were slammed over and over again with that bit of unfounded wisdom.
In the first place Sandy was NOT a super storm. “Superstorm” was a term made up by Mainstream Media as a scare tactic. The truth is: SANDY WAS NOT EVEN A HURRICANE WHEN IT CAME ASHORE AT ATLANTIC CITY! To be a hurricane a storm must have sustained winds of at least 74 miles per hour. Sandy was so weak that the storm didn’t have winds high enough to be classified as a hurricane and was therefore only a “tropical cyclone.” Actually, it was LESS than that. It was, in fact, what is known by meteorologists as a “Post Tropical Cyclone.” That’s about as weak as a storm can can get and still be classified as some kind of cyclone.
I know, I know! Yeah, I hate to burst your bubble, but thems the facts, Jack!
Remember, there were two other weather systems that combined with what was left of Sandy to create that godawful weather event now dubbed Superstorm Sandy.
Many of us debunkers warned at the time that the “environuts” would use those combined storms as a means to spread fear of non-existent global warming. They did. Oh, how they used it.
Just remember: “Sandy was never a superstorm. There are no superstorms.” SOURCE: http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-11/dictionary-hurricane-sandy-superstorm
So what was Global Warming all about, anyway? Well, former Czech President Václav Klaus said this: “This ideology preaches earth and nature and under the slogans of their protection – similarly to the old Marxists – wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central, now global, planning of the whole world”
Global governance. A one world government. To be more precise: A one-world SOCIALIST government.
Let’s face it: The socialist movement is relentless. If you ever wondered where all those communist and socialist went when the old Soviet Union collapsed — look no farther than the environmental movement — the Global Warming crowd.
So now we can expect another campaign to shut up those of us who are, in fact, debunkers. But it won’t work. See, facts are stubborn things. They won’t go away. And most importantly, truth has no agenda. Truth IS — period.
It is the truth were are interested in spreading. Nothing more.
