"Global Warming" theory debunked
« on: September 19, 2013, 11:59:16 PM »
The latest report on the issue of Global Warming (from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change) indicates that it is a myth.

From an AP story on the subject:

STOCKHOLM — Scientists working on a landmark U.N. report on climate change are struggling over how to address a wrinkle in the meteorological data that has given ammunition to global-warming skeptics: The heating of Earth's surface appears to have slowed in the past 15 years even though greenhouse gas emissions keep rising.
For years, skeptics have touted what looks like a slowdown in surface warming since 1998 to cast doubt on the scientific consensus that humans are cooking the planet by burning coal, oil and natural gas.
Scientists and statisticians have dismissed the purported slowdown as a statistical mirage, arguing among other things that it reflects random climate fluctuations and an unusually hot year picked as the starting point for charting temperatures. They also say the data suggests the "missing" heat is simply settling — temporarily — in the ocean.
But as scientists study the issue, the notion of a slowdown has gained more mainstream attention, putting pressure on the authors of the new U.N. report to deal with it.  [Bold added]

They'd never listen; why let something as paltry as the truth get in the way of realizing your fondest political dreams?

There never was a "theory", per se.  There was granny's rumatiz medicine for sale in the form of global warming.  Theory implies some sort of scientific approach and there was none. The only people who believed it are the kind of people you would find in Jonestown, dead from an overdose ordered by their "leader", saint Algore. 0005
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
