U.K. believers in climate change are now telling us that there will be no global warming for five years as this “pause” continues.
According to the Daily Caller, some scientists have developed a theory that explains the “pause” in global warming and leads us to expect it to resume at some point in the future.
U.K. scientists are saying the so-called “pause” in global warming could continue to the end of the decade. But scientists warned of accelerated temperature rises once the global warming hiatus has ended.
For the last 15 years, global surface temperatures have not been rising nearly as fast as most climate models predicted — a period called the “pause” or “hiatus” in global warming. Scientists have offered dozens of explanations for the warming hiatus, and now U.K. scientists are saying the 15-year pause could go on for at least another five years.
Scientists with the U.K.’s Met Office, the country’s top climate agency, and the University of Exeter report there is a 25 percent chance the hiatus in warming could go on for another 5 years, and a 10 percent chance warming could be on pause for another 10 years. The study found a less than 1 percent chance of another 20 years with little to no warming.
“[W]e should not be surprised if the current hiatus continues until the end of the decade,” U.K. scientists wrote in their paper. But scientists cautioned that there “is an increased likelihood of accelerated global warming associated with release of heat from the sub-surface ocean and a reversal of the phase of decadal variability in the Pacific Ocean.”
These scientists are not skeptics regarding global warming. They believe in it. Their claims actually save the theory because they account for the lack of warming and claim to show that it will resume soon.
What does this tell us?
It tells us that there is no consensus about global warming and that we can’t trust anyone. Only a couple of months ago we were assured that 2014 had been the hottest year in recorded history. That was before 2013 was the hottest year. Nothing was said about any “pause” in global warming.
So now these scientists are saying that the other ones were lying. There had been no real global warming. But there will be! This time you can believe them!
If they want us to believe them they need to get their story straight.
