Man Made Glopbal Warming Disproved

Read entire article here

First, on May 21, headed “Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts” , reported that the entire Alpine “winter sports industry” could soon “grind to a halt for lack of snow”. The second, on December 19, headed “The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation” , reported that this winter’s Alpine snowfalls “look set to beat all records by New Year’s Day”.
Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects.
First, all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades. This winter, with the whole of Canada and half the US under snow, looks likely to be even worse. After several years flatlining, global temperatures have dropped sharply enough to cancel out much of their net rise in the 20th century.
Ever shriller and more frantic has become the insistence of the warmists, cheered on by their army of media groupies such as the BBC, that the last 10 years have been the “hottest in history” and that the North Pole would soon be ice-free – as the poles remain defiantly icebound and those polar bears fail to drown. All those hysterical predictions that we are seeing more droughts and hurricanes than ever before have infuriatingly failed to materialise.
Even the more cautious scientific acolytes of the official orthodoxy now admit that, thanks to “natural factors” such as ocean currents, temperatures have failed to rise as predicted (although they plaintively assure us that this cooling effect is merely “masking the underlying warming trend”, and that the temperature rise will resume worse than ever by the middle of the next decade).
Secondly, 2008 was the year when any pretence that there was a “scientific consensus” in favour of man-made global warming collapsed. At long last, as in the Manhattan Declaration last March, hundreds of proper scientists, including many of the world’s most eminent climate experts, have been rallying to pour scorn on that “consensus” which was only a politically engineered artefact, based on ever more blatantly manipulated data and computer models programmed to produce no more than convenient fictions.

    Yesterday, I read “2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved” and arched an eyebrow.

    First, as an comp instructor, I noted the use of the passive voice. Global warming “was disproved” by whom? By “stories”? By the weather?! By what? Where in the article does this author cite peer-reviewed authority for his statement? I didn’t find it. And some of the statements included are not confirmed by other recent articles, for example, this one from _ScienceDaily_ . Why is NASA unaware of what Booker claims? I know Americans are shamefully behind in the study of science, but NASA too?

    Second, Booker’s clear confusion of weather and climate undermines his entire article, doesn’t it? I wonder if this writer has any sort of scientific background or if he’s a person with an agenda.

    Like you I appreciate a “no nonsense” logical approach. It’s a hard path, one that takes so much time, so much cross-referencing, so much evaluation.

    Have you been studying the acidification of the ocean? That might be an approach to pursue since so few people are following this currently. That is, this aspect is currently less politicized than the climate (or the weather.) For background info, I suggest Peter Ward’s _Under a Green Sky_. A noted paleontologist, Ward gives a good explanation of what happens when oceans acidify. Although they are getting little notice, a number of scientific studies are popping up in the mainstream news.

    Another must-read is William Ruddiman’s _Plows, Plagues, and Petroleum_. Ruddiman, a retired paleoclimatologist, gives non-science folks an accessible overview of how climate patterns work and then explains why his research suggests that global warming did NOT start with the Industrial Age as so many scientists say.

    Onward!
