Where’s The Global Warming?


That’s what the decidedly non-conservative BBC is asking (emphasis in original):

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

Right there, in the third paragraph, is the problem with all global warming (or climate change, if you prefer) doomsday scenarios: the climate models are woefully inadequate at forecasting! If you take the weather conditions from, say, a year ago and plug them into a climate model, I’ve not yet heard of a single model that would correctly predict how the weather actually turned out. Therefore, they are absolutely useless in predicting how the climate is going to change in the next 5 or 10 years, not to mention even further out.

Until and unless the “climate change” Chicken Littles out there get themselves a model that can actually predict reliably, I’ll be a reliable skeptic of their doomsday prognostications.

    Who was President in 1998? George W. Bush? We are experiencing one of the coldest and meteorologically inactive years on record. There are a few scientists that are saying we are going through a period of global cooling.

    However, that does not further Captain Planet Algore’s and other environmental leftists’ agenda, so that is why they repackaged their theories as global “climate change”: The globe is cooling? Climate change. The globe is heating? Climate change. Polar bears are dying? Climate change. Ice caps are melting? Climate change. Ice caps are growing? Climate change. Sore joints before a storm comes in? Climate change. Blah, blah, blah.

    If nobody is getting it yet, it’s not about concern for humankind or saving the planet, as Algore and the environuts would lead everyone to believe. It’s about power and control.

    If we give leftist environuts any quarter by letting them do what they have been and are planning to do, we will be enslaved by literal environmental fascism.

      There’s one more thing, Wapiti.

      Obama and Gore and the rest of the lefties are absolutely devoted to the idea of equality of outcomes, not just equality of opportunity.

      Therefore, if America is more successful than other nations (and it is), it must be brought down to the level of other nations… in other words, Americans must be made poorer!

      Global warming/climate change is just the latest tool to try to do that.

    Good points all.

    They’re doing a good job making America poorer and weaker.

    The way things are going, we will be ripe for the picking, if a truly imperialistic country wants to make a land grab. They won’t even have to fire a shot.
