A new study published in the Journal of Nature Geoscience may have figured out why global temperatures keep falling much to the chagrin of the “Church of Global Warming Moonbats.” Their entire model was all wrong.
According to the Article:
We conclude that in addition to direct CO2 forcing, other processes and/or feedbacks that are hitherto unknown must have caused a substantial portion of the warming during the Palaeocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum. Once these processes have been identified, their potential effect on future climate change needs to be taken into account.
In English, it is saying that around 55 Million years ago there was a major incident of Global Warming 55 million. This warming happened at the same time as a massive injection of carbon into the atmosphere. Scientists have used this information to create a the model used to predict the global warming that will occur via our collective carbon footprints. The problem is scientist now say that warming was much greater than one can expect from the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide alone.
This means that either scientists are over predicting the future rise in temperatures from CO2 or something other than carbon dioxide created the temperature rise.
“In a nutshell, theoretical models cannot explain what we observe in the geological record,” says oceanographer Gerald Dickens, study co-author and professor of Earth Science at Rice University in Houston. “There appears to be something fundamentally wrong with the way temperature and carbon are linked in climate models…..
The conclusion, Dickens said, is that something other than carbon dioxide caused much of this ancient warming. “Some feedback loop or other processes that aren’t accounted for in these models — the same ones used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for current best estimates of 21st century warming — caused a substantial portion of the warming that occurred during the PETM.” Source
A copy of this report should be sent to every person in Congress before they make a commitment to relying on bad info to mess up the economy.
Don’t worry dems, since you can’t blame the “non-warming” on CO2, maybe you can now blame it on Dick Chaney or President Bush.
There is a great post on Hot Air that talks to the real objective of Global Warming policy, income redistribution.Read it here
