UN Study admits that the sun may play ” a significant role” in global warming. The science is settled, and always has been, but it was settled by the handful of brave scientists who stood up to their peers and pointed this out years ago.
A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.
“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
As usual, the warmists are scrambling to defend their beloved computer models (the most famous of which being the Al Gore “hockey stick” that proved, until it was exposed as a fraud, that the earth’s climate was being pushed to the breaking point by human activity).
“The solar component is real but not of sufficient magnitude to have driven most [emphasis added] of the warming of the late 20th century,” Pat Michaels, the former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and current director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, told FoxNews.com.
The U.N. report also says that the effect of solar activity will be “much smaller than the warming expected from increases in [man-made] greenhouse gases.”
An estimate from NASA said that solar variations caused 25 percent of the 1.1 degree Fahrenheit warming that has been observed over the past century.
What if they came out with a theory that said it was scientifically proven that the earth was warming to catastrophic levels entirely because of human – produced “green house gasses”, that temperatures would climb uninterrupted and inexorably unless the entire world shut down all carbon fuel sources within 15 years? What if it were then leaked by one of the most ardent supporters of the theory’s calculation that those “settled science” models failed to account for 25% of that rise, which was in fact caused by the sun, a force that so far, even Barrack Obama has claimed no control over? Would that make you rethink the models? The models which claim to be so accurate that they can predict to a tenth of a degree what the temperature will be on February 28, 2079? Would it make you question whether it is really possible to prevent a warmer climate? Or wonder whether it might make more sense to start planning for that warmer future rather than engage in a ruinously expensive, futile effort to (literally) hold back the tide?
Not the warmists, who will not budge, just as they’ve ignored the revelation that the earth stopped getting warmer 17 years ago, and refuse to acknowledge that China and India, already the world’s largest producers of greenhouse gasses, are on track to completely replace the First World’s emissions by new growth of their own, thereby rendering moot our efforts here (Europe, North America) even if we shut down our entire economies.
I’ll say it again – and again and again: “Global Warming”, as preached by western religionist, is all about the power to control (other) human’s lives and has nothing to do with saving the world. Nothing.
