As a lead into a detailed analytical post I have been working (and which I hope to have out later today) I found this interesting article on how Global Warming is not coming for at least 20 years, as mother nature proves once again the man-made global warming theories are essentially bogus:
The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the worldâ€™s most eminent climate scientists.
Their predictions â€“ based on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans â€“ challenge some of the global warming orthodoxyâ€™s most deeply cherished beliefs, such as the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in summer by 2013.
Mother Nature is not just challenging the beliefs underpinning AGW, she is exposing the shoddy science and math that went into these theories. More on this later today (I hope!).
Update: One interesting result in this analysis is the conclusion is that this new cooling indicates man-made global warming could account for less than 50% of the climate changes we are experiencing:
Prof Latif, who leads a research team at the renowned Leibniz Institute at Germanyâ€™s Kiel University, has developed new methods for measuring ocean temperatures 3,000ft beneath the surface, where the cooling and warming cycles start.
He and his colleagues predicted the new cooling trend in a paper published in 2008 and warned of it again at an IPCC conference in Geneva last September.
Last night he told The Mail on Sunday: â€˜A significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 to 2000 and at earlier periods in the 20th Century was due to these cycles â€“ perhaps as much as 50 per cent.
Well, well. Now we have scientific evidence that man’s activities are NOT mostly responsible for the climate we have been experiencing. Which means changing our miniscule carbon dioxide production will not change the weather – duh!
