The Climate Change true believers have viewed this conflict as an epic battle against polluters and greedy corporations in defense of Gaea, Mother Earth. It has become a religion, and one must choose sides in order to be 'saved'.
Over the past several years it has been oh-so-fashionable to submit to the religion of Global Warming. It has recently become trendy to smear those who express skepticism as 'deniers', an apparent effort to marginalize rather than respond to these critics.
Well, now Mother Earth has finally declared sides, and it is not good new for the environmentalists:
Global Temperatures have not increased in 15 years:
|Global Temps Soar.... or not.|
(Daily Mail) — The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.
The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.
Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.
This means that despite massive increases in CO2 in the atmosphere, global temperatures are not behaving as the AGW models predict. End of discussion. AGW is a fraud.
Even the enviro-whackos know this is end of the line:
‘We’re now well into the second decade of the (cooling),’ said Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation. ‘If we don’t see convincing evidence of global warming by 2015, it will start to become clear whether the models are bunk. And, if they are, the implications for some scientists could be very serious.
Funny, though, the media seems to have been busy on the day that this study was released. No US news services thought that this was worthy of notice.
I expect that this report will be ignored, and the next 'wierd' weather event will be touted as proof positive that AGW is real.
They will then follow these wild stories with demands that the 'deniers' repent and accept the one true god of Global warming.
This is only possible because 'global warming science' is not science at all. It is a religion masquerading as science. The zealots who are pushing it are actually power hungry leftists posing as concerned environmentalists. Green on the outside, Red on the inside.
Facts be damned, Mother Earth must be saved!
