Man-Made Climate Change Evidence 'Hidden' By Sulphur Emissions [Coal pollution slows global warming]

Cutting down on pollution from Chinese coal plants could actually make the earth become warmer, according to a new study.

Exponents of global warming have struggled to explain why temperatures have declined in recent years instead of rising in line with the significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

Researchers now claim that sulphur emissions from power plants in China are blocking sunlight and having a cooling effect on the atmosphere, cancelling out the effect of global warming.

The impact of the sulphur emissions has combined with a cooler stage of the sun's cycle and a change from the El Nino to the La Nina weather system in the South Atlantic has kept temperatures artificially low, the experts argued.

If true, this could mean a change in the Sun's 11-year cycle along with measures to refine Chinese coal boilers will cause temperatures to rise significantly.

But sceptics of man-made climate change said the researchers "tweak an out-of-date climate computer model and cherry-pick the outcome to get their desired result".

Does anyone believe any of these “scientists” know what the hell they are talking about?

So we have to have more coal plants!!!

To counter globull warming~!!!

Great idea!

Ok...so maybe the increase in temperatures in the 90’s could be attributed to decreased use of high sulphur coal in this country, during that period.

Junk science is fun - you can make anything up.

A crazy attempt to excuse the chicom’s coal plants, while still hobbling our economy!

Doesn’t this mean coal fired plants REDUCE global warming? And doesn’t that mean they are done?

Was going to say—always a new excuse why their models aren’t working. Now pollution STOPS global warming. And from Chinese plants no less—how convenient! The mind reels......

I have never seen such bad science as I’ve seen on this “climate change” scam.

I am no joking when I state that we’re looking at folks who are too unschooled to even have a liberal arts degree - let alone the knowledge of mathematics and physics required to even approach the complexity of trying to model the earth’s climate.

Let’s say this is true.

Then the answer to global warming is more coal producing plants. in other words, the unintended consequence of the environment whack jobs and Obama getting their way and shutting down coal plants will in fact be global warming.

And since this seems to be the answer, then we can regulate our climate by reducing and increasing emissions when necessary instead of getting rid of emissions and paying billions of tax dollars to dictators to buy what?

We have controls on sulfur emissions.

So, burning high sulfur coal is a GOOD thing.

But sceptics of man-made climate change said the researchers "tweak an out-of-date climate computer model and cherry-pick the outcome to get their desired result".

Oh, the Global Warmers would never do a thing like that because they are SCIENTIST and they really care about Gia.

The fact that their jobs depend on people continuing to believe the Man Made Global Warming fraud would have nothing to do with the fact that they continually come up with new excuses for their predictions failing to be realized.

"Exponents of global warming have struggled to explain why temperatures have declined in recent years instead of rising in line with the significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions. "

They are now admitting this...after a lot of denials.

Just a heads up — Coal producing plants are generally called MINES!

All these rules will disappear when our dollar collapses and we have to sell our resources to pay our debt.

So when a capitalist country sends sulfur in the air it's bad but a communist country spews sulfur out it's good. Makes sense coming from a bunch of watermelon scientists.

China will be given a green light to do whatever it wants. Count on it.

This is impossible because 20 years of scaremongering by the left tells me the computer models of climate scientists are perfect and predict warming.
