Yesterday, Former VP Al Gore was peddling his snake oil in Ireland where he warned:
Former US vice-president Al Gore called for action on climate change yesterday, comparing denial of changing weather patterns to “sleepwalking towards the edge of the cliff”….Even with glaring evidence [of extreme weather patterns] people still do not connect the dots of climate change,” he told more than 350 delegates from 60 countries. “We have to win the conversation about climate change. When you hear denial, speak up.”
Sadly for the former VP with the tense Chakra his Climate change hoax is falling apart and most of the latest science disproves his money-making global warming scheme.
Often focused on century-long trends, most climate models failed to predict that the temperature rise would slow, starting around 2000. Scientists are now intent on figuring out the causes and determining whether the respite will be brief or a more lasting phenomenon.
Getting this right is essential for the short and long-term planning of governments and businesses ranging from energy to construction, from agriculture to insurance. Many scientists say they expect a revival of warming in coming years.
Theories for the pause include that deep oceans have taken up more heat with the result that the surface is cooler than expected, that industrial pollution in Asia or clouds are blocking the sun, or that greenhouse gases trap less heat than previously believed.
The change may be a result of an observed decline in heat-trapping water vapor in the high atmosphere, for unknown reasons. It could be a combination of factors or some as yet unknown natural variations, scientists say.
Weak economic growth and the pause in warming is undermining governments’ willingness to make a rapid billion-dollar shift from fossil fuels. Almost 200 governments have agreed to work out a plan by the end of 2015 to combat global warming.
“The climate system is not quite so simple as people thought,” said Bjorn Lomborg, a Danish statistician and author of “The Skeptical Environmentalist” who estimates that moderate warming will be beneficial for crop growth and human health.
Some experts say their trust in climate science has declined because of the many uncertainties. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had to correct a 2007 report that exaggerated the pace of melt of the Himalayan glaciers and wrongly said they could all vanish by 2035.
“My own confidence in the data has gone down in the past five years,” said Richard Tol, an expert in climate change and professor of economics at the University of Sussex in England.
There is an easy explanation for the slow down (one tracking study has suggested that temperatures haven’t increased in 17 years). The slow down can be directly attributed to the fact the climate models were wrong.
Scientists cannot put every possible factor into their computers so their models do not replicate “real” conditions. And instead of looking out the window to see the climate is not changing, they hold on to their disproved theories because they have an economic pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (like Gore) or because they refuse to admit they are wrong. But more and more science is proving this global redistribution of income scheme is totally bogus and we are not going to act like Algore’s little lemmings—sleepwalking toward a cliff.
