Skip to comments.Climate data chills global-warming alarmism
Posted on 02/02/2012 11:54:02 AM PST by landsbaum
The Earth's temperature hasn't increased significantly in about 15 years, which wouldn't be big news except global warming extremists had predicted temperatures would soar during that time because of manmade greenhouse-gas emissions.
That forecast would be just another failed hypothesis, except governments around the world used the threatened overheating as an excuse to regulate, tax and subsidize in order to curb greenhouse gases and, of course, to save the Earth. . . .

Whatever, but I would like to thank La Nina for giving the northeast a rather snowless winter, so far.
I’ll second that.No shoveling makes for a happy back.
We had nearly 60 degrees in southern Michigan the other day and the temps have been in the 40s and 50s for a week.
If this is global warming, they better hide it from us northerners or we’ll be looking for carbon dioxide generators to make every winter like this one.
Well all hail the “editorial boarad”.
Have you any comments?
Whoops, no.. you don’t. Average about two per year.
Quite a contrast to the number of self-authored “articles” you post.
What’s frustrating to me is that people argue with these fools in their folly instead of calling them on their folly.
The anthropogenic global warming agenda is the implementation of socialism and global government.
There is really no concern whatsoever for the “erf”, they’re just using the environment and climate change to further a communist agenda,
and they need to have their noses rubbed in it instead of arguing with them on the minutiae of a degree or two here and there.
For much of the world there’s just no major downside in it for us even if it were true. Unfortunately, one seriously warm winter doesn’t prove their case but it sure makes a lot of happy yankees.
The ground isn’t even frozen here in southern michigan and I have broccoli plants out there that are still fine and ready to start growing again with an increase in sunlight.
Exactly....even if global warming was true, even if it was man-made...so what? Seems to me the end result would be more arable land to grow crops on.
Readable by the masses....
Thanks for posting!
Just posted this regarding the latest AGW piece from JoNova ...Blog in Australia:
While everyone is enjoying their sunny and warm winter down there, it’s been the coldest January on record in Alaska. My diesel fuel turned to jello - literally - on Saturday and Sunday when the weather service measured temps of -62 and -65 in our little town. When the temps came up to -31 yesterday you could have sworn it was warmer.
Please put more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Thank you.
We have a lot more to fear if the latest cooling trends come to pass.
Reduced growing seasons, etc.
Save the earth. More like line the pockets.... :)
landsbaum may indeed be the author of the many Orange County Register items he posts - but it's a legitimate newspaper, so I'm not sure I see the problem.
If someone put up a billboard advertising their product on land they did not own, would that be fine with you?
Homey is USING Free Republic as a marketing tool.
He (multiple log-ins, by the way) does not participate in the forum.
We're just a hit farm to him. You still don't see the problem?
If the message were the important part, he'd write it here.
The message obviously is secondary to pimping for hits.
the Register requires excerpting
Yes, isn't that convenient for someone wishing to play Free Republic as a market?
The boy wants hits, that's why he excerpts his stuff here.
It's beyond obvious.
It’s a good editorial. I’m glad he posted it. Lighten up Francis.
He didn't. He excerpted it.
There is a difference.
It evens out, we are having one of the coldest summers in memory along the coasts from Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne to Adelaide and everyone is complaining.
Also, remember that drought that was “caused by global warming” and all the global activists said that Australia was never going to have good rains again? Well, it just keeps raining and raining in Brisbane/Sydney/Melbourne and people are also complaining about all the rain.
Actually the only place winter is warmer this year is in the lower latitudes in the USA. In Europe, specifically eastern Europe, it is much colder than normal, about 90 deaths so far this winter from the cold. The Arctic, Alaska and Canada are also experiencing much colder weather.
This should be heralded as good news, except it won’t be.
Nope. No problem. Good articles from a credible source with a viewpoint generally pleasing to FReepers that no one else has posted .
I have no problem clicking on his paper. If their advertising revenue increases by 1/1000 of a cent because of it, it's worth it to help them stay in business.
Given the quantity of meaningless baloney from obscure and often talentless bloggers posted here more and more, these posts are a net plus to FR.
Roy Spencer (http://www.drroyspencer.com/) just posted the UAH satellite temperature anomaly for January. It came in at 0.09C BELOW "normal" for January. I believe "normal" is defined as the first 30-yrs of satellite data averaged.
