But…but…but, Dollar Bill told us the science was settled!

Warmists admit what has been known all along: the globe hasn’t warmed in the past twenty years

DEBATE about the reality of a two-decade pause in global warming and what it means has made its way from the sceptical fringe to the mainstream.

In a lengthy article this week, The Economist magazine said if climate scientists were credit-rating agencies, then climate sensitivity – the way climate reacts to changes in carbon-dioxide levels – would be on negative watch but not yet downgraded.

Another paper published by leading climate scientist James Hansen, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, says the lower than expected temperature rise between 2000 and the present could be explained by increased emissions from burning coal.

For Hansen the pause is a fact, but it’s good news that probably won’t last.

International Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri recently told The Weekend Australian the hiatus would have to last 30 to 40 years “at least” to break the long-term warming trend.

But the fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.

Research by Ed Hawkins of University of Reading shows surface temperatures since 2005 are already at the low end of the range projections derived from 20 climate models and if they remain flat, they will fall outside the models’ range within a few years.

“The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations,” says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

“If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change,” he says.

Whitehouse argues that whatever has happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation because the pause in temperature rise has occurred despite a sharp increase in global carbon emissions.

And so on.  Deniers like Hansen and Dollar Bill may squawk, but their hopes to destroy modern civilization are dimming. More here, if you wish. And if you’d like to read of yet another debunking of “the hockey stick” graph, perhaps the most grievous fraud foisted on a gullible public by the warmists, read here.

    There’s a reason I call him Dullard Bill, but now maybe I’ll start calling him Fred for F__king retard, extra dumb.

    Science is never settled. New contradictory information invariably disrupts consensus. Any serious scientist understands that once a theory has been challenged and discredited the process of developing a new theory starts from scratch.

    I wonder how many people bought mini-poopers, trying to save the polar bears, only to be pulverized when they smacked into larger vehicles? I hope their souls are waiting for Mr. Gore on the other side.

    If we can stop trying to one-up each other for a minute – what it really means is that the global climate is so large and complex that trying to get a model (or models) to walk a straight line of the sort that makes moronic politicians on either side of the question comfortable is close to impossible. There are, however, indicators besides temperature, such as sea water acidification, that indicate long term trends. Let’s not go there, so as to prevent excess glassy eye syndrome.

      So, temperature may not indicate warming?

    • Okay, okay, that whole temperature thing didn’t work out, and the polar bears turn out to be flourishing, and Great Britain’s snowbound, and Al Gore’s a poser in a jet, but, but, surely there’s something we can use to justify shutting down the First World’s economy, lemme think, lemme think, ah! Acidification of the ocean! Yeah, that’s the ticket, acid! Groovy, man, but the whole scheme is melting away.
