Climate doom? Yeah, not happening
(UK Daily Mail) The Mail on Sunday today presents irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed.
The graph on this page blows apart the ‘scientific basis’ for Britain reshaping its entire economy and spending billions in taxes and subsidies in order to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. These moves have already added £100 a year to household energy bills.
Let’s see that chart
The graph confirms there has been no statistically significant increase in the world’s average temperature since January 1997 – as this newspaper first disclosed last year.
And now the climate astrologers will attack the Daily Mail and probably talk about “cherry picked data”, Big Oil, etc and so on. Alas
Its source is impeccable. The line showing world temperatures comes from the Met Office ‘HadCRUT4’ database, which contains readings from more than 30,000 measuring posts. This was added to the 75 and 95 per cent certainty bands to produce the graph by a group that amalgamates the work of 20 climate model centres working for the IPCC. (snip)
The awkward fact is that the earth has warmed just 0.5 degrees over the past 50 years. And Met Office records show that for the past 16 years temperatures have plateaued and, if anything, are going down.
None of this proves that the Earth is not in a warm period. It is. The temp increases could kick back on, or they might dip, like during the time period from the 40′s to the 70′s. What this does show is that all the Warmist models, usually obtained using computers with little real world data but with notions that the only thing that can cause increased temperatures during this period are due to Mankind, are flawed. And hysterical. Over-the-top. Prognostications from carnival palm readers. And that CO2 (and other GHG) output from Mankind is not the main driver of the global climate.
The works of Mankind surely have an effect on the local climate. This is known as the Urban Heat Island Effect. Globally? Not so much. Someone needs to create a 12 step process to ween Warmists off their narrow dogma.
