Time to spread a little jelly on the global warming hoax. If even the establishment libs at Roto-Reuters admit that it hasn’t been getting any warmer despite the supposed ongoing crisis, you know the whole swindle is toast.
Climate scientists must do more to work out how exceptionally cold winters or a dip in world temperatures fit their theories of global warming, if they are to persuade an increasingly sceptical public.
At stake is public belief that greenhouse gas emissions are warming the planet, and political momentum to act as governments struggle to agree a climate treaty which could direct trillions of dollars into renewable energy, away from fossil fuels.
Public conviction of global warming’s risks may have been undermined by an error [i.e., an outrageous lie] in a U.N. panel report exaggerating the pace of melt of Himalayan glaciers and by the disclosure of hacked emails revealing scientists sniping at sceptics, who leapt on these as evidence of data fixing.
Most of the article consists of vague doubletalk, apparently meant to leave us with the impression that global warming has just been lying low for awhile, the better to pounce on us when we least expect it. But once they admit that 1) there is no consensus that global warming is real, regardless of what Al Gore might bellow; and 2) it hasn’t been getting any warmer, it’s time for moonbats to invent a new crisis. A couple of highlights:
“There is a lack of consensus,” said Kevin Trenberth, head of the Climate Analysis Section at the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research, on why global temperatures have not matched a peak set in 1998, or in 2005 according to one U.S. analysis. …
British Hadley Centre scientists said last year that there was no warming from 1999-2008, after allowing for extreme, natural weather patterns. Temperatures should have risen by a widely estimated 0.2 degrees Centigrade, given a build up of manmade greenhouse gases.
Some daring scientists are even starting to suggest that temperatures are determined not by taxes and regulations, but by that big bright thing hanging in the sky.
