Global warming has slowed down over the past 10 years, say scientists
dailymail.co.uk ^ | Nov. 26, 2010 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 11/26/2010 1:45:42 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

The rate at which global temperatures are rising has slowed in the past decade, scientists said today.

In a report published today, the Met Office said the slow in the rate of warming was down to a combination of natural variation in the weather and pollution.

Scientists say one of the major factors is the rise in heavy industry and pollutant 'aerosols', particularly in Asia.

An upsurge in industrial emissions such as sulphur which are being pumped into the atmosphere reflects sunlight and could lead to a cooling effect. Changes in the amount of water vapour in the stratosphere may also be a factor, the report suggests.

The admission will be seized upon by climate sceptics as evidence that man-made global warming has been overstated.

This is one of the reasons that Obama wants to double our electricity prices. He’s a buffoon.

Hehe. Maybe Obama will get a second Nobel prize - this one for stopping global warming.

Oh no not global cooling again.... I don't know how I survived it 40 years ago the last time it was doing us all in. Then I ducked that global warming.... I was hoping for a bout of global moderation :)

It has slowed so much that it never happened.

I wish these people would quit doing self-parody. It makes making fun of them too easy.

Kind of hard to perpetuate the lie indefinately when you can’t dispute fact with media-pushed fiction. But then again, we’ll all be doomed by denying global hoaxing before the next election cycle. Bank on it.

Wow. That's a pretty impressive list.

So, tell me, if they can do all that, how come they can't decide whether or not Pluto is a planet?

And then tell me how it is they can blame man for Global Warming when man was hardly around at the time glaciers formed Lake Tahoe, The Great Lakes, Yosemite National Park, Glacier National Park, etc.?

How odd (not) that they now discover that nature can play a large part in climate changes. Who knew? Next, they'll issue a press release announcing their discovery that water is wet.

OK, let ne get this straight.
Global warming existsts.
Global warming existed but not in the past 10 years but “GLobal Warming” still exists.

When is this global warming coming back and should i be prepared for it?
If global warming does come back should i plant my tomatoes 2 weeks earlier?
my friend has a beach house, should he open it 2 weeks earlier as well?
Maybe we as a whole should invest 900 bilion dollars to make sure “Global Warming” NEVER comes back.
It’s is a thought....but then i’d have to wait another 2 weeks for my tomatoes and beach time.
Confusing...

"We're they able to predict that it would slow down? If not their model must be faulty."

The global warming true believers (oops, I meant to say "scientists") would simply dodge that question by arguing that the warming trend is real, but is being obscured by other factors, such as the aforementioned industrialization. My response to that would be that it then appears that their climate models were designed to model climate on some hypothetical planet that doesn't exist. The real world is chock full of mitigating factors that can't simply be shrugged off, yet they do so anyway because it doesn't fit the approved narrative.

You seem to equate a few hundred - or even thousand - nutters with millions of *real* scientists. Unless you live in an earth hole in the middle of some wilderness and dress in ferns, just about anything you see around you today is the result of a couple of centuries of science evolving to what it is today.

But go ahead and hate scientists all you want. How about you just go without *anything* running on electricity (nope, can’t start your car either - a battery does that) for a few weeks, ok?

Oh, wait - are you one of those stuck-in-the-seventh-century muslims? That would go a long way explaining your posts...

You need to understand that 'Global Warming' is about a lot of things (politics, control, rationing) but it sure as hell has nothing to do with science.

That all sounds like stuff engineers have done. A scientiest, OTOH, would discover the basic principle behind one of those advances, scribble it on a Post-it note, and it would end up in the trash, leaving it to the cleaning crew to take it to an engineer! ;-)
