Skip to comments.Twenty-year hiatus in rising temperatures has climate scientists puzzled
Posted on 03/29/2013 5:23:11 PM PDT by ChessExpert
DEBATE about the reality of a two-decade pause in global warming and what it means has made its way from the sceptical fringe to the mainstream.
But the fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.

the sun is in a cooling period maybe ,ya think ,climate scientists should spend sometime outside ,the vit D will do them good
Why don’t these idiots see that it is the Sun? They are either stupid or lying corrupt phoney scientists who are better at conning people than observation and deduction.
They can’t think outside the box, or our atmosphere, if you will.
Maybe their theory is wrong.
How can the powers that be use that information to increase their control over you?
Too many people out there who actually hope than human activity is causing climate calamities. To illustrate otherwise would ruin their day.
See, that PROVES global warming. Haaa!
"If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change," he says.
The conclusion was that the olive oil sold by Aldi's was "the least poisonous".
You need a doctorate from a major university to talk that way ~ so now we learn that observed temperatures are getting out of line with the models' predicted temperatures! And that violates the 'consensus' ~ LMAOROTF
I think you nailed it on the head.
The term Faustian is used three times in the article, a little heavy-handed IMO.
I found this interesting:
“Hansen argues that the impact of human carbon dioxide emissions has been masked by the sharp increase in coal use, primarily in China and India.”
Increased coal use is usually presented as increasing, not decreasing coal use. So the warmists should make up their minds. Does increased coal use warm the environment? Or cool the environment? China, India are waiting with bated breath to hear the answer. Also, Obama might want to stop his war on coal-fired powerplants if they actually combat global warming. Closing these powerplants will hurt the economy and might, according to Hansen, warm the environment.
In the mid 70s there was concern about global cooling. For an example, you can do a search on “The Cooling World” to find an article from Newsweek. (Also, a search on “James Hansen Global Cooling” turns up some hits.) There had been 30 years of cooling and the environmentalists/socialists demanded that the government take action.
They thought the cooling might have been due to particles emitted by mankind. Which brings us to the next paragraph:
“Increased particulate and nitrogen pollution has worked in the opposite direction of rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.”
The warmists have never, to my knowledge, addressed why global cooling ended, and why global warming began. Did we reduce our emissions of particles, thereby stopping cooling and starting warming? Perhaps government policy, advocated by environmentalists, caused global warming. Surely, that was not their intent, but that may be what happened.
Correction. I meant:
Increased coal use is usually presented as increasing, not decreasing global temperatures.
Back in the old days they used to call these people charlatans and frauds, now they call them “climate scientists” and “government experts”.
destroy it big time!!!
With luck all environmentalists will commit suicide!!
Thanks for the links! I will check them out.
Today, fake scientists feed off government grants, turning cold weather data into proof of warmer weather. So far, no executions, and nobody has had to skip town.
I'm thinking the the medieval world recognized bad science faster than modern governments do.
“Progressives” masking as scientists (physical, social, whatever) will always be net negatives to peace, prosperity, and knowledge.
