Oops… Climate “Scientists” wrong again

If it weren’t so sad, it would be funny.  Warmists cling to the idea that the Earth is heating up and it’s all the fault of filthy humans.  The problem is every day new studies and corrections of previous data emerge to show Al Gore and his minions are simply wrong about climate change and it’s supposed impending doom.

Just last week a government report shows that the drought experienced in America in 2012 was not caused by climate change, sorry Al.

The historic drought that blazed across America’s corn belt last year was not caused by climate change, a federal government study found.

The summer of 2012 was the driest since record-keeping began more than a century ago, as well as one of the hottest, producing drought conditions across two-thirds of the continental United States.

Barack Obama and other prominent figures have repeatedly cited the drought as evidence of climate change. But the report released on Thursday by scientists at five different government agencies said that was not the case. The drought was “a sequence of unfortunate events” that occurred suddenly, the report said. The circumstances were so unusual the drought could never have been predicted.

Now Reuters is reporting that climate “scientists” are stymied by the fact that the Earth is not warming despite the rise in greenhouse gas emissions.  For years we have been told that increasing amounts of greenhouse gasses are directly causing the Earth to warm.  Apparently that’s not exactly true.

(Reuters) — Scientists are struggling to explain a slowdown in climate change that has exposed gaps in their understanding and defies a rise in global greenhouse gas emissions.

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.

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.

Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius first showed in the 1890s how man-made carbon dioxide, from coal for instance, traps heat in the atmosphere. Many of the exact effects are still unknown.

Greenhouse gas emissions have hit repeated record highs with annual growth of about 3 percent in most of the decade to 2010, partly powered by rises in China and India. World emissions were 75 percent higher in 2010 than in 1970, UN data show.

Add on to all this the fact that the Earth hasn’t warmed in just about two decades and you have yourself a losing argument.  Dare I say the jig is up?

  1. It’s much worse than we think. Government money is flowing for research so that what everyone already knows can be accredited by science. But we don’t really need science to know that any solution must involve higher taxes and bigger government do we?

Any Thoughts?
