PAPER: Global warming ended 15 years ago; 'mini-ice age' next...
Guardian ^

Posted on 01/29/2012 7:37:11 AM PST by chuckee

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997...

PAPER: Global warming ended 15 years ago; 'mini-ice age' next...

Wow, I'd like to hope it'll arrive before July. We live in the desert and the highlands have barely had any snow. We're in for a scorcher of a summer if there's no monsoon.

Mini Ice Age - we are counting on you. Y'all come on down an' see us some time!

But ... but ... where’d the “hockey stick” go??? Wasn’t one of them educated professors from the University of East Anglia the one who said temperatures will climb quickly if we don’t stop putting out carbon dioxide?

I believe it was in the 70’s, they were saying the same thing. OMG, we’re going to freeze.

They just can’t figure out how to make money on these damn weather changes.

I live in the greater Chicago area, and as such I am a strong supporter of increased global warming.

Gee why isn't this being reported in the US media??? Al Gore is the greatest charlatan in history and should along with the climate “scientists” who faked the data for political gain, be held responsible for the billions of dollars spent for worthless carbon reduction schemes and the loss of millions of jobs.

"The ten-year projection remains groundbreaking science."

How long, if ever, before they admit that their "groundbreaking science" is nothing more than broken science?

I can't believe they would actually make this statement. Seriously?

From the article:

"Yet, in its paper, the Met Office claimed that the consequences now would be negligible – because the impact of the sun on climate is far less than man-made carbon dioxide."

Image the "fanfare" had the numbers been in the opposite direction. These people are such puke hypocrites.

Ten years from now may have many wishing for the good old catastrophic global warming years.

S. Mississippi has had a few really cold winters over the last decade, but this one has been pretty mild. It might not be long before I get to experience a New York winter without travelling north.

But I thought the last 11 years including last year were the warmest on record? LOL

“S. Mississippi has had a few really cold winters over the last decade, but this one has been pretty mild. It might not be long before I get to experience a New York winter without travelling north. “

Mild up here in NY too. We’ve only had one winter snowstorm of any consequence about a week ago. We got more snow during the freak northeaster at the end of October.

I heard it is the La Nina keeping the jet stream running high over the more northern USA.

I have had liberals roll their eyes at me, when I suggested that the sun was the primary driver in our weather....and the source of the vast majority of energy on our planet. Up is down, black is white. These people will believe anything, except obvious truth.

"Wow, I'd like to hope it'll arrive before July. We live in the desert and the highlands have barely had any snow. We're in for a scorcher of a summer if there's no monsoon."

You're more than welcome to the layer of ice here (day or so to your northeast). It sprays every few days for a day or two with 60-110 mph winds from the peaks just to the west of us. ;-) This summer, some mornings will bring lows in the 20s, some hail but little rain.

We were going to raise a few head of cattle each year from bobby calves, but we're looking more seriously at yaks now. ...better suited to the climate, and they don't eat much. ...found out that goats get pneumonia after sudden temperature drops. We've designed some solar drainback heating systems (large tanks for thermal storage in water without antifreeze), but even those are too costly to justify one each, for several livestock shelters. We might build a simple one for one chicken coop.

This is a very sparsely populated area (high, intermontane basin, looks kinda like Mars). But with the possible extended solar minimum, reductions in local robberies revenues, the rest of the default process ahead (foreclosures all around) and most folks around us in their late-60s and 70s now, we'll probably have even far fewer neighbors within four or five years. ...maybe none at all within five miles or so.

We are actually due for a full ice age to start.
