If you are the one of those people who welcomed global warming cause of the savings generated by not purchasing winter jackets…you may find this news to be a bit disappointing.
The Met office in the UK which is one of the key proponents of the Climate Change hoax in the world, now says global warming stopped over 15 years ago. That is that the average temperature between 1997 and August 2012 did not rise at all. Although they didn’t want people to know it as they released the numbers onto the internet without any fanfare (six months ago when they had numbers that supported the climate change theory the Met office made a major “press announcement.”
Those figures went up to 2010 – supposedly the hottest year on record – and showed a continuing warming trend.
To put this no warming period in perspective, before 1980 temperatures were stable or even declining. Scientists were predicting another ice age. That was followed by a period of warming from 1980-1996. Now the world-wide temperatures have stabilized for as long a period as the warming which, when looked at objectively may mean the warming period was simply an aberration.
Dr Benny Peiser of Lord Lawson’s Global Warming Policy Foundation said: “It is quite scandalous that the Met Office is misleading the public. Nobody knows what this means long term and how long this pause is going to last. The
latest data proves beyond any doubt that that there has been no warming over the past 16 years.
“Nobody knows what this means long term and how long this pause is going to last.
“Though we are in a period of accelerating greenhouse gas emissions the climate is not responding in the way that climate models have predicted.
“Global warming is not a looming disaster. We need to reassess the Government’s climate change policies such as the drive for renewable energy which is extremely expensive
“These figures do not mean there is no problem long term but they show it is not the imminent disaster we have been told about.
“We have more time to come up with a more moderate and more realistic solution rather than just running around like headless chickens.”
Perhaps this means that President Obama does not have to destroy the coal industry (not that it would stop him).
… according to increasing numbers of serious climate scientists, it does suggest that the computer models that have for years been predicting imminent doom, such as those used by the Met Office and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are flawed, and that the climate is far more complex than the models assert.
‘The new data confirms the existence of a pause in global warming,’ Professor Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Science at America’s Georgia Tech university, told me yesterday.
‘Climate models are very complex, but they are imperfect and incomplete. Natural variability [the impact of factors such as long-term temperature cycles in the oceans and the output of the sun] has been shown over the past two decades to have a magnitude that dominates the greenhouse warming effect.
In other words, computer models are only as good as the biased people who create them. Perhaps its time for the scientists to turn off their computers and look out the window— to see the actual weather.
