Whereâs the warming? POSTED AT 6:00 PM ON JUNE 12, 2011 BY ED MORRISSEY Carbon emissions over the past decade actually exceeded predictions by the UNâs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), no thanks to the global economic recession. According to their anthropogenic global-warming theories, global temperatures should have risen significantly as a result. James Taylor at Forbes wonders what happened: Be sure to check out the links, which show charts over varying time sets, but which all show basically the same thing: no real change over longer periods of time. Not in the Arctic, which Taylor notes was supposed to be the canary in the coal mine, nor in the northern hemisphere, or the globe overall. Thatâs even true for just the last decade, but itâs especially true over the period of several decades. Periods of high amplitudes in warming are matched with low amplitudes. Earlier this week, I linked to a couple of articles from physicists who have expressed considerable skepticism of the AGW hysteria, including one who worked in Australiaâs climate-change ministry. Itâs worth revisiting his observation about the science, its models, and whatâs missing: Itâs becoming even more clear now. If carbon increases and the predicted warming didnât follow, then the obvious conclusion is that the hypothesis regarding cause and effect is incorrect â and the missing hot spots are even further evidence of this.
