Global Warming Follies

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved

Is it true? Or is it just the wishes of a London Telegraph columnist? I think he may be right. Let’s see why when he compares two stories from his own paper:

…on May 21, [a story] headed “Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts” , reported that the entire Alpine “winter sports industry” could soon “grind to a halt for lack of snow”. The second, on December 19, headed “The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation” , reported that this winter’s Alpine snowfalls “look set to beat all records by New Year’s Day”.

Now, you would think, that anyone with a smidgen of a frontal cortex would put those two reports together and begin to question whether the global warming scare mongers are right.  Especially after you read this:

…all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades. This winter, with the whole of Canada and half the US under snow, looks likely to be even worse. After several years flatlining, global temperatures have dropped sharply enough to cancel out much of their net rise in the 20th century.

And what about that consensus among all of those scientists that, for sure, we’re killing the “planet” with our”emissions”?

…2008 was the year when any pretence that there was a “scientific consensus” in favour of man-made global warming collapsed. At long last, as in the Manhattan Declaration last March, hundreds of proper scientists, including many of the world’s most eminent climate experts, have been rallying to pour scorn on that “consensus” which was only a politically engineered artefact, based on ever more blatantly manipulated data and computer models programmed to produce no more than convenient fictions.

Amen and Amen.

Can we go on to more real problems now? Somehow I think not just yet. With our new president, I think we’ll be going after those windmills for just a little while longer. Hopefully just a little.
