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 its 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; its time for them to wake up and realize theyve been had, taken, swindled, conned, and used.
I cant 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 theyre 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 Im 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.
This would be the second time its died.
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.
Can we PLEASE have our Pipeline now?
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.
Is this article an April fool joke?
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.
An honest and just government would have Gore in federal prison for scamming,extortion, and supporting an enemy combatant. (He put the Al in AlJaezera)
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.
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.

December 1776....at the tail end of the mini 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
Check out the thickness of the ice on the Thames river London.
i shall endeavor to keep that in mind in future...
“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.
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.
