No global warming for 19 years. 19 years! But we’re all gonna die… soon. And the ice at the polar cap is gonna melt one of these centuries (instead of becoming huge, as it has this year). Really. Al Gore said it, so it must be true, right?
From Australia’s Harald Sun, “McKintrick Paper: No Warming for 19 Years.”
The Guardian in 2009 predicted five years of rapid warming:
The world faces record-breaking temperatures as the sun’s activity increases, leading the planet to heat up significantly faster than scientists had predicted for the next five years, according to a study.
The hottest year on record was 1998, and the relatively cool years since have led to some global warming skeptics claiming that temperatures have leveled off or started to decline. But new research firmly rejects that argument.
The research, to be published in Geophysical Research Letters, was carried out by Judith Lean, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, and David Rind, of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
Fail. Five more years of no warming followed.
Professsor Ross McKitrick says in a new paper that the warming pause has now lasted an astonishing 19 years at the surface and 16-26 years in the lower troposphere.
Get this: The UN has now put out a “Help Wanted” ad for a pretty, young, developing world woman to kick off the 2014 Climate Summit this month in New York City. They want a bubble-headed, activist, script-reader to sway world leaders to address warming… you know, the warming that isn’t happening… but which will… unless we give up our money and our freedom.
As columnist Andrew Bolt says, they’ve really shown their hand, which is nothing more than junk cards that aren’t helping their push for a Full House of money and power from bogus climate claims.
Time for a Global Royal Flush to clean the whole mess. Asking the United Nations to pack their bags and leave New York would be a nice start.
