  1. Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released... and here is the chart to prove it

    The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

    The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

    This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.

    The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

    calling out Stu, and Ricter and free thinker and that obnoxious global warming dope brass and even bigwavedave.

    do you read that you fricken clowns... ricter I will exclude you and bigwavedave fromthe dopey clown category.

    you guys were claiming all sort of shit and pretending it was science. The problem is et leftists don't know science from scientism.

    you were making projections based on models.
    yet when we asked for proof you tried to discredit those people as anti science.

    you were all delusional lefitst drones.

    Professor Phil Jones, director of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, who found himself at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ scandal over leaked emails three years ago, would not normally be expected to agree with her. Yet on two important points, he did.

    The data does suggest a plateau, he admitted, and without a major El Nino event – the sudden, dramatic warming of the southern Pacific which takes place unpredictably and always has a huge effect on global weather – ‘it could go on for a while’.

    Like Prof Curry, Prof Jones also admitted that the climate models were imperfect: ‘We don’t fully understand how to input things like changes in the oceans, and because we don’t fully understand it you could say that natural variability is now working to suppress the warming. We don’t know what natural variability is doing.’

    The numbers are based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations around the planet. The data was quietly released last week without fanfare and it confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.

    So, what does this mean for those scientists advocating the Global Warming/Climate Change Theory? In 2007, the UK Met Office claimed that global warming was about to "come roaring back." It said that between 2004 and 2014 there would be an overall increase in global temperature of 0.3C.
    In 2009, it predicted that at least three of the years 2009 to 2014 would break the previous temperature record set in 1998. This has not happened.
    These warming predictions are based on the outputs of computer forecast known as Global Climate Models (GCMs). None of the GCMs have seen nor predicted the lack of warming over the past 15 years, even as CO2 levels continue to rise.
    The Met Office was relying on the same computer models that are being undermined by the current pause in global-warming.

    Professor Judith Curry agrees. She is one of America’s most eminent climate experts and works at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She argued it is becoming evident that factors other than CO2 play an important role in rising or falling warmth, such as the 60-year water temperature cycles in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
    "The responsible thing to do would be to accept the fact that the models may have severe shortcomings," Curry said. As for the lack of warmer in the last 15 years, she said that many scientists "are not surprised."
    "When both oceans were cold in the past, such as from 1940 to 1970, the climate cooled," Curry said. "The Pacific cycle ‘flipped’ back from warm to cold mode in 2008 and the Atlantic is also thought likely to flip in the next few years."
    Pal Brekke, senior adviser at the Norwegian Space Centre, said some scientists underestimate the importance of water cycles when considering global temperature trends.
    "Doing so means admitting that the oceans - not CO2 - caused much of the global warming between 1970 and 1997," Brekke said.

    What??!! There's no global warming??? But.. but CO2 levels are rising. How can this be? Al Gore promised that the oceans would rise by several feet by now if CO2 wasn't controlled with massive taxes and spending on his companies. He promised the earth would boil and we would all die as would plants and we would all starve.

    What went wrong? Did Al Gore lie? Did the Democraps lie? Was that Cap and Trade or Cap and Tax plan just a big scam to get our money? Did Obama just waste $90 Billion taxpayer dollars on green energy for nothing more than to line the pockets of his donors?

    I guess the answer to my last four questions is, YES.

    $90 Billion is a hell of a lot of money. A hell of a lot.
  5. We have been paying higher energy prices for nothing...basically created an industry for tree huggers. It's going to go down as one of the greatest cons in history....
  6. You guys are idiots. Simply idiotic. Moronic even. Ignorant and incredibly delusional based on party affiliation and nothing more. Breathtakingly stupid. I hope you brain-dead buffoons don't use charts in your trading because you obviously don't know the first thing about comprehending them.
