The U.N. high priests of Global Warming are meeting this week, no doubt flying into Stockholm, Sweden, on private pollutant-spewing jets. Global Warming “science” pays well, so they an afford it.
Despite all data to the contrary, their final report on the scourge of manmade global warming, to be released on Sept. 30 will surely be chock-full of dire predictions of climate Armageddon unless America reverts to third-world status.
Yet some have started to recognize the graffiti on the walls at the “Church of the Burning Planet,” as Larry Bell calls it, that temperatures have been flat to cooling for the past 17 years.
Mr. Bell wrote that of all publications, The New York Times reported this on June 6:
“The rise in the surface temperature of Earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.”
Reporter Justin Gillis went on to admit that the break in temperature increases “highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system,” whereby the lack of warming “is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists.”
Maybe the Times is the harbinger of a global climate shift? Could this be the opening salvo to the eventual shift from the warming hysteria to cooling? They were the first to do a 180 from cooling to warming in 1981, when just six years earlier Newsweek had their infamous, “The Ice Age Cometh” cover story that scared the crap out of many. The Times even published its own article in 1975 entitled “Major cooling may be ahead.”
Yet in 1981 the same New York Times proclaimed, “Scientists are predicting global warming of an unprecedented magnitude.” Differing scares have occurred four times in just the last century or so. I’ve documented it here.
Earth has gained 19,000 Manhattans of sea ice since this date last year, the largest increase on record. There is more sea ice now than there was on this date in 2002.
But the warming mega-church has far too much invested and at stake in both reputation and finance to give up the fight just yet. They’ll continue to publish their bogus climate charts and graphs, despite increasingly overwhelming evidence of their “garbage in/garbage out” models. They purposely exaggerate Earth’s sensitivity to CO2 emissions by some 30% or more and don’t ever account for the natural forces such as ocean cycles, solar activity, and cloud formation and movement.
They don’t factor these forces into their models because they can’t. They can’t because they know little to nothing about them and how they affect Earth’s climate, so they discount them or bury these exceptions in some footnote or fine print. Yet anyone with half a brain could understand these are most likely the only three factors that affect climate long term.
Not factoring those in would be like losing weight by simply adjusting the scale to the number you desire.
But logically, for the warming scam artists, these “natural” forces must be discounted. If warming or cooling were caused by forces of nature and beyond our control, there would be nothing to combat, no one to sue. The EPA would be without its central radical cause. Where would all the green commies go? What would they do? So the cause must be man-made. It must be caused by CO2. It just has to be.
At the end of the day, does it really matter what gloom and doom the climate high priests report? Anyone with an ounce of common sense can look at the evidence; all the lies, the doctored reports, false and scrubbed data revealed to us in recent years, and can only conclude that those who still believe do so out of blind faith to their religion, because it sure ain’t science!
And it’s profitable, too. If there’s no crisis, they don’t get paid.
