January 29, 2012 - A great report at Mail Online (dailymail.co.uk) says that "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.
Stunning! "The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age," Mail Online says, "to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century."
Huxter Al Gore. Image via WikipediaOh my. To make it worse for the global warming sheeple, this news comes to us not from a radical group of nutty "deniers" -- it comes from NASA and other respectable sources.
Mail Online continues: "Analysis by experts at NASA and the University of Arizona – derived from magnetic-field measurements 120,000 miles beneath the sun’s surface – suggest that Cycle 25, whose peak is due in 2022, will be a great deal weaker still."
This is sad and bad news for those who have been telling us that the world will end by frying and/or boiling due to man-made global warming. The Mail Online report effectively tells us that Al Gore is a liar (as so many of us have always known).
I must point out that the Daily Mail did not actually call Gore a liar. The reality of the reports, however, do that by proving Gore is a hoaxster and a huckster.
At the very least, the fact that reputable scientists dispute the theory of global warming (that's "theory") brings the lie to claims by the likes of Al Gore when they say that the "science is settled" because of "consensus" among those who believe in Gore's hysterics. The practice of science by consensus is antithetical to the scientific method itself.
"Sadly for Gore et al," wrote Matt Patterson at globalwarming.org recently, "a growing number of scientists are publically expressing skepticism about anthropogenic global warming, emboldened by a flood of new data that casts doubt on the whole “climate change” paradigm."
Despite this and a lot of other information that disputes the global warming scare theories, there are still imbeciles like Maxwell T. Boykoff who just can't accept reality. Boykoff fretted last week in the Washingto n Post about Barack Obama only using the phrase "climate change" but once in last Tuesday's State of the Union address.
In his WaPo piece, Boykoff asked, "But what do we lose when global warming and climate change get repackaged as clean energy?" He tried to answer his own question with, "We wind up missing a thorough understanding of the breadth of the problem and the range of possible solutions."
No, Mr. Boykoff, what we wind up with is scams such as Solyndra, Ener1 and other "green" programs that have wasted hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in the name of stopping climate change.
Writer James Delingpole at The Telegraph UK wrote a nice review of the Mail Online piece, in which he uses brilliant snark and sarcasm to skewer the global warming crowd and their scamming ways. Definitely worth a read.
"But don't worry," Patterson wrote in another piece at WashingtonExaminer.com last week. "Even as climate scientists -- and an ever-gullible media -- are forced by new data to admit that the Earth is not warming, they take pains to assure us that the Earth is still warming."
