AGW panic ending with a whimper ( Global Warming Hoax ends with a whimper?)
Armed and Dangerous ^ | Monday, April 1 2013 | by esr

This is how the AGW panic ends: not with a bang, but with a whimper.

The Economist, which (despite a recent decline) remains probably the best news magazine in the English language, now admits that (a) global average temperature has been flat for 15 years even as CO2 levels have been rising rapidly, (b) surface temperatures are at the lowest edge of the range predicted by IPCC climate models, (c) on current trends, they will soon fall clean outside and below the model predictions, (c) estimates of climate sensitivity need revising downwards, and (d) something, probably multiple things, is badly wrong with AGW climate models.

Do I get to say “I told you so!” yet?

The wheels are falling off the bandwagon. The Economist has so much prestige in the journalistic establishment that it’s going to become difficult now for the mainstream media to continue averting their eyes from the evidence. Honest AGW advocates have been the victims of a massive error cascade enlisted in aid of a vast and vicious series of political and financial scams; it’s time for them to wake up and realize they’ve been had, taken, swindled, conned, and used.

I can’t but think the record cold weather in England has got something to do with this. Only a few years ago AGW panicmongers were screaming that British children would never see another snowfall – now they’re struggling with nastier winter weather than has been seen in a century. Perhaps the big chill woke somebody at The Economist up?

And if you think I’m gloating now, wait until GAT actually falls far enough below the low end of IPCC projections that the Economist has to admit that. I plan to be unseemly and insufferable about it, oh yes I do.

Well, time to admit that it’s really global cooling that will kill us. Cooling caused by rich, capitalist, industrialist, white, men, who must be taxed to death to save the planet.

Fat Al says, “What me worry? I have already made my millions from the scam”.
Time now for the AGW kooks to turn attention to making the USA into a USSA Marxist hellhole.

Warming! WARMING! W-A-R-M-I-N-G!!!!

no, wait a sec...

COOLING! C-O-O-L-I-N-G! It’s Cooling! That’s the ticket!

Why we still give these clowns the time of day — let alone grant money — baffles me.

They will just keep this crap up any way they can. They’ll switch to cooling, and if the temps ever rise again it will be AGW again.

The real trick is to defeat the leftists.

Someone was pretty clever when they confused the public perception of "global warming" with "climate change." They realized the "warming" con couldn't keep working. But climate change! Aha! The climate has been in a constant flux of change for Earth's 4.5 billion year existence. Propaganda gold! Any change, warming or cooling, could somehow be attributed to human (read American) industrialization.

The Left-leaning ‘’nature’’ magazines like National Geographic and Smithsonian and the Discovery Channel are still beating the drum on this. It's pathetic to see. I grew up as a kid reading Nat Geo but over the last few years I began to see the Leftist tinge in it and stopped subscribing to it.

With faux scientists applying their “secret sauce” to climate data in order to keep their fat government grants flowing, there is no reason to believe any of their research.

Their enablers in the Leftist media are using it to promote carbon taxes etc. for governments so that the Leftist agenda of total control of all means of production can be advanced through this unscientific scare-mongering.

It’s like an old side-show trick where you get the suckers to hand over whatever the charge(10 cents, a quarter, a buck or whatever) to see ‘’the worlds smallest giant’’ and the worlds largest midget’’.

King obastard is about to unveil a new massive push to fight AGW. Think mere facts will get in his way? Think his ignorant voter base will care? Of course not.

Nice bit of English-style comedy. A tip however, if you mean the frog to be upper-crust, the upper-crust would never use ‘’blimey’’ So uncouth, wouldn't you agree? Something perhaps, say, “Of all the damned impertinence!''

...and (d) something, probably multiple things, is badly wrong with AGW climate models.

I disagree, they worked exactly as planned and designed, they were supposed to "prove" AGW thereby pushing gutless and stupid politicians into massive new taxes and regulations, which they would love to pass in any case.

Looking at the flat or cooling climate today, just imagine the trumpeting of success and genius that would be pouring out of every bit of media if they had managed to get the massive taxes and regulations passed as planned.

You got it half right.....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades. The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age.

There was no central heating to keep Britons warm between the 1500s and mid-1800s, a period known as ‘The Little Ice Age’.

This name was coined to tie together all the different global cooling events which took place, which produced the very coldest series of British winters for millenni

“James Lovelock, the maverick scientist who became a guru to the environmental movement with his “Gaia” theory of the Earth as a single organism, has admitted to being “alarmist” about climate change and says other environmental commentators, such as Al Gore, were too.”

When you’ve lost Lovelock, you’ve lost the war.

I’ve always considered Global Warming and Astrology as having about the same scientific basis and approximately the same degree of accuracy .... however, the Astrology field is probably a little less of a scam.

It should end with a massive investigation into this organized conspiracy to defraud that the AGW crap was from the very beginning.

Someone was pretty clever when they confused the public perception of "global warming" with "climate change."

Recently that was people like this http://marine.rutgers.edu/~francis/pubs_10-05.html Writing popular press articles like this: http://in.reuters.com/article/2011/09/28/idINIndia-59591620110928: "Slowing jet stream shows risk from warming Arctic - Gerard Wynn" which starts with "(Gerard Wynn is a Reuters columnist. The views expressed are his own)" IOW, a useful idiot in the press.

The article reads "A new, unpublished finding that the polar "jet stream" is slowing down provides compelling evidence of a link between rapidly melting Arctic sea ice and colder winters across the northern hemisphere and other extreme weather"

It is 100% bullshit. I need not go into why a sea ice boundary change makes no difference to the weather, people here know that weather is weather. But I might need to remind the folks that the models predicted the opposite although around 2005 there were some speculative and poorly supported results in the other direction. Essentially models and simple science say that Arctic warming and stratospheric cooling, two of the pillars of CO2 warming theory, will lead to a stronger polar jet with less wavering.
