Skip to comments.Facts debunk global warming alarmism
Posted on 01/20/2009 6:52:59 AM PST by CedarDave
Over the past few years, similar signs of colder than usual weather have been recorded all over the world, causing many people to question the still fashionable, but now long outdated, global warming alarmism. Yet individual weather events or spells, whether warmings or coolings, tell us nothing necessarily about true climate change.
Nonetheless, by coincidence, growing recognition of a threat of climatic cooling is correct, because since the turn of the 21st century all real world, long-term climate indicators have turned downwards. Global atmospheric temperature reached a peak in 1998, has not warmed since 1995 and, has been cooling since 2002. Some people, still under the thrall of the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change's disproved projections of warming, seem surprised by this cooling trend, even to the point of denying it. But why?
There are two fundamentally different ways in which computers can be used to project climate. The first is used by the modelling groups that provide climate projections to the IPCC. These groups deploy general circulation models... The models presume (wrongly) that we have a complete understanding of the climate system.
GCMs are subject to the well-known computer phenomenon of GIGO, which translates as "garbage in, God's-truth out".
Alternative computer projections of climate can be constructed using data on past climate change ...
Thus, using several fundamentally different mathematical techniques and many different data sets, seven scientists all forecast that climatic cooling will occur during the first decades of the 21st century. Temperature records confirm that cooling is under way, the length and intensity of which remains unknown.
Yet in spite of this, governments across the world - egged on by irrational, deep Green lobbying - have for years been using their financial muscle and other powers of persuasion to introduce carbon dioxide taxation systems.

They care about $$$:
Introduction of a carbon dioxide tax to prevent (imaginary) warming, euphemistically disguised as an emissions trading scheme, is a politician's, ticket clipper's and mafia chief's dream. All will welcome a new source of income based on an invisible, colourless, odourless, tasteless and often unmeasurable gas. ...
The present global financial crisis should be inducing politicians not to squander money on non-solutions to non-problems. Yet to support their plans for emissions taxation Western governments, including ours, are still propagating scientifically juvenile greenhouse propaganda underpinned only by circumstantial evidence and GCM computer gamesmanship.
Bump for later reading.
We don’t want to let FACTS interfere with how we FEEL.
I live in the deep South. We are having a lovely snow storm this morning.
With regard to climate, 10 or 20 years is too short a time to determine a trend. A Prof of Climatology should know that.
Just picking nits here. It's actually "Garbage in, Garbage out" not "God's-truth". That the AGW nuts view it as "God's-truth" is the problem.
It's not any kind of truth. It's garbage.
With regard to climate changes, 100 years and 1C are far too small to determine a trend. The IPCC should know that.
Global warming is sooooo ‘90s.
CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!!! RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!!!! CLIMATE CHANGE IS COMING!!!!!
Boston averages 41 inches of snowfall a year. This year we have had 44 inches and it is only Jan 20. Now this is meaningless when it comes to the overall climate but if it had been the opposite (say 5 inches of snow so far) the global warming proponents would be all over it as evidence of their cause....
