There is No Global Warming and Will Be None for Decades

By Alan Caruba

I recently received an unsigned email about my Sierra Club commentary in which I pointed out that it opposes traditional forms of energy and made a passing reference to Obama’s lie that “climate change”, the new name for global warming, was now "settled science.” 

Global warming was never based on real science. It was conjured up using dubious computer models and we were supposed to believe that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change could actually predict what the climate would be twenty, fifty, or a hundred years from now.

The writer of the email disagreed with me. “lol you are a f**king idiot. you don’t believe there is global warming going on? you need to let your prejudices go and stop basing your views on what your political stance is…do you research you f**king faggot.” 
 
(And isn't THAT typical of some of the small minds who assault me here on DA, for my educated stance! As seen here comments.deviantart.com/1/4248… )
                                                                                                                        
Now, not everyone who believes in global warming is as rude as this individual and certainly not as ignorant, but his message suggests that those who do not believe in it do so as the result of “a political stance” when, in fact, our views are based on science.

 

(Try telling THAT to a True Believer here on DA! Shrieks of 'conspiracy!,' 'creationist!' and other such IDIOCIES, abound)

Anyone familiar with my writings knows that a lot of research is involved. In my case, it dates back to the late 1980s when the global warming hoax began to be embraced by politicians like Al Gore who made millions selling worthless “carbon credits” while warning that “Earth has a fever.”
 
(Research- something I don't see much of from True Believers. One such person believes the Arctic was ice-free last summer fav.me/d740y9q  )

A small army of scientists lined their pockets with government grants to produce data that supported the utterly baseless charge that carbon dioxide was causing the Earth to warm. They castigated other scientists or people like myself as “deniers” while we proffered to call ourselves sceptics. They were joined by most of the media that ignored the real science. And the curriculums in our schools were likewise corrupted with the hoax.
 
 
(I disagree that it is a 'hoax'; warming DID happen, until 1998. But those who push the meme of 'man-made' global warming, appear to have no problems with mis-representing what the science says...)
 
Then, about 17 years ago the Earth began to cool. It had nothing to do with carbon dioxide—which the Environmental Protection Agency deems a “pollutant” despite the fact that all life on Earth would die without it—and everything to do with the SUN.
 
(and, so far, they've come up with 8 different reasons why the 'Pause' is happening- the FACT that their models never projected it, seems to be missing from their explanations)

 
A few days after the email arrived, two-thirds of the contiguous U.S.A. was covered by snow. As this is being written, Lake Superior is 92% frozen, setting a new record. As of February 5, the entire Great Lakes system was, according to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, 77% covered with ice.

On February 1st, NOAA and NASA held a joint press conference in which they released data about 2013’s global surface temperature. They made reference to a “pause” in the temperature that began in 1997. Dr. David Whitehouse, science editor for the BBC, noted that “When asked for an explanation for the ‘pause’ by reporters, Dr. Gavin Schmidt of NASA and Dr. Thomas Karl of NOAA spoke of contributions from volcanoes, pollution, a quiet Sun, and natural variability. In other words, they don’t know.”
 
(David Whitehouse is NOT a skeptic. Not if he wants to keep working for the BEEB)

Both of these government agencies, along with others like the EPA and the Department of the Interior are staffed by people who understand that their employers are deeply committed to the global warming hoax. One should assume that almost anything they have to say about the “pause” is based entirely on politics, not science.

Then, too, despite the many measuring stations from which data is extracted to determine the Earth’s climate, there is a paucity of such stations in COLD places like Siberia. Stations here in the U.S. are often placed in “heat islands” otherwise known as cities. If you put enough of them close to sources of heat, you get thermometer readings that produce, well, heat.

People in the U.S., England, Europe and other areas of the world who do not possess Ph.ds in meteorology, climatology, geology, astronomy, and chemistry have begun to suspect that everything they have been told about global warming is false. Between 1300 and 1850 the northern hemisphere went through a mini-ice age. After that it began to warm up again. So, yes, there was global warming, but it was a natural cycle, not something caused by human beings.

Nature doesn’t care what we do. It is far more powerful than most of us can comprehend.

This brings us back to the Sun which determines, depending on where you are on planet Earth, how warm or cold you feel. The Sun, too, goes through cycles, generally about eleven years long. When it is generating a lot of heat, its surface is filled with sunspots, magnetic storms.

When there are few sunspots, solar radiation diminishes and we get cold. Scientists who study the Sun believe it may encounter another “Maunder minimum”, named after astronomer Edward Maunder, in which the last “Little Ice Age”, between 1645 and 1715, occurred. The Thames in England froze over as did the canals of Holland froze solid.

There is no global warming and scientists like Henrik Svensmark, the director of the Center for Sun-Climate Research at Denmark’s National Space Institute, believes that “World temperatures may end up a lot cooler than now for 50 years or more.” I agree.

We've had so far this year (just over the border of Pennsylvania, in southern Ontario): an extended winter, April weather in May, and a summer seeing days as much as 10 degrees below normal. I don't mind the cool summer but I sure hated the winter. Unfortunately another such winter may be in the works.

Also, yes climate change happened before. And you know what? IT WAS A COMPLETE DISASTER!!!
Ever heard of the Permian Extinction? You know, 90% of life dying out. That was climate change.
When 40% of life died out part way through the Cenozoic? Climate change.
Triassic extinction, over 60%? Climate change.
The end of the ice age, extinction of megafauna? Climate friggin change.
Except each of those took thousands of years and gave life time to adapt. Today there's only a few hundred.

Triassic Extinction happened because of asteroid, which changed the climate in DAYS. It's very likely that those older extinctions also happened because of asteroids. Climate changed in days. We're talking about centuries now. It would get warmer anyways, people are only slightly boosting it. Anyways, as we've seen, earth and life have ALWAYS recovered from it, this time will not be any different.

The meteor theory isn't yet proven, but if it was the case that was not temperature rise, it was temperature FALL. Not as dangerous (well except Snowball Earth, that was scary XD)

Yes, life recovered, but not the species that were there before, entirely new, basically alien life. Once life recovers from the current disaster, there will be no elephants, dolphins, magpies, hedgehogs, humans or any other animal you can name. Instead there'll be some new species of super-rats or killer lizards or some thing we can't possibly predict. It won't be our Earth anymore.

And just because we didn't start a disaster doesn't mean we shouldn't stop it. We fight wildfires and floods, why not global climatic change too?

'Yes, life recovered, but not the species that were there before, entirely new, basically alien life.'

 

Not true. Small mammals were already underfoot when that extinction event happened, and came into their own after it passed. And you are neglecting another 'climate-change disaster' - when the atmosphere flipped over from nearly all nitrogen, to oxygen-nitrogen. A lot of micro-life went extinct then.

It never was our earth. Humans aren't the most important animal of the Earth or even the top of evolution. We are just as "important" as any other animal before and after us.

"The meteor theory isn't yet proven, but if it was the case that was not temperature rise, it was temperature FALL."
I never said anything about temperature. I said the climate changed.

I mean it won't be the Earth we know anymore. It'll be basically a different world. All the life and places we know and life will be destroyed or drastically changed. It's like blowing up Earth for the sake of aliens you don't know. Nobody would do that given the choice.

You have the right of it. I would also note that something drastic happened during the megafauna extinction which he mentioned- another extremely abrupt climate change. That, too, is starting to look like a (much smaller) asteroid impact.

I see I read that wrong. No matter: why I cannot even Begin to understand, is why you believe any and all climate change is automatically a disaster. Especially with the half-dozen warming periods we have experienced since the end of the last ice age.

 

If they are teaching you that all climate change is a disaster for all life, then they are lying through their teeth to you. I will also note that climate change is part of the drive called EVOLUTION.

Warming has FLATLINED the past 17 years, 5 months. It is a barely readable .03 C per decade. Even the IPCC admits that temperatures are barely budging, and they haven't got a CLUE as to why. So I am not sure where you see 'accelerating.'

Haven't got a clue is an exaggeration. There are over 3 theories actively being tested.
Besides as I said before it's just a temporary cyclical dip, temperatures are still rising and when the natural cold period passes they'll take off again.
Natural disasters and sea ice melting are still worse than ever so the problem hasn't gone away.

Did you actually LOOK at any of those links I posted in a prior comment? (or was that to another person?) Natural disasters ARE NOT GETTING WORSE. But when people build Trillions of dollars' worth of infrastructure right where big storms have hit for millions of years- such as the current site of New York City, or in the Philippines- you are going to get bigger damage numbers, when the storms do hit.

 

Sea ice melting... you DO realize, that sea ice is already displacing the water around it? When sea ice melts, it doesn't add to sea level.

'not many more'?

 

The climate has changed at least 10 times in the last 11,000 years. Come back when you have done a few years of catching up.

It's CLIMATE change NOT WEATHER change. Climate is the long-term temperature of Earth, weather is little fluctuations like a particularly cold winter or hot summer. The overall temperature is going up, all the top 10 hottest years on record are in the last 2 decades, more than half in the last 10 years. Yes, of course there will be cold periods due to sun activity, but the sun has been through warm periods too and the temperature didn't rise like this every century. We're also above what the temperature was before the mini ice age and increasing rapidly. If statistics won't convince you why not look at actual satellite pictures of arctic ice  now as opposed to the 50s?

Ive been writing these articles for about 5 years now, why don't you actually read a few of them before you begin telling ME what I am talking about.

 

The ten hottest years in a record going back less than 140 years, yes, yes, I know that you are IGNORING THE FACT that those 140 years are since THE END OF THE LITTLE ICE AGE, in which the Earth's temperature had fallen a good 4C from the height of the Medieval Warm Period- and that we have not even recovered to THAT level of warmth yet.

 

If you bothered to read up on the solar cycles like I have, they correspond pretty damned well with the LIA, the current solar cycle corresponds Extremely well with the start of the LIA, and Cycle 25 is forecast to be even weaker than Cycle 24. Better yet, Landscheidt predicted these solar cycles 20 years ago- and he also predicted things would get colder. And they are getting colder.

 

The IPCC and a host of pro-AGW scientists across the globe, have, for 30 years, been calling for warmer, wetter, shorter winters. Instead, we are seeing cold records being broken world-wide. Snowfall records being broken, snow extent records rising, ski slopes opening weeks earlier than usual and staying open later into the spring than they ever have.

 

Arctic ice in the 50s? 

 

'Even Hotter at the Pole' 1950 stevengoddard.wordpress.com/20…

 

An article on historic variations in polar ice, by climate scientist Judith Curry judithcurry.com/2013/04/10/his…

Open water at the North Pole, 1958 wattsupwiththat.com/2009/04/26…

 

According to the IPCC, polar ice was Skyrocketing to the 'record' level recorded in 1979. How could it be climbing to record levels if it was already there in the 50s?

 

'The temperature didn't rise like this.'

 

If you look back at the deepest part of the Little Ice Age, we have since seen a temperature rise of 2.5 C. That was 250 years ago. That means we've been warming up about 1 degree per century- and MOST of that, before human CO2 had one Damned thing to do with it.

 

1979 was the tail end of a cycle of cooling which ran from the 40s to the early 70s. Of Course things appear to have warmed up faster... especially when one takes note of the El Chico eruption, which substantially COOLED the Earth in 1982. So yes, the rebound looks pretty fast, and looks Horrible if one ignores that the eruption even happened!

 

We have had barely readable warming for the past 17 years 5 months. They have now come up with *8* different reasons why the Earth has not warmed anywhere near what they claimed it would over that period of time. They. DON'T. KNOW. Even one of the IPCC's own scientist, Von Storch, recently wrote a paper in which he states that the IPCC's model are SO DAMNED BAD, they are off by 400%!

 

I have chores to deal with, and should have begun them 20 minutes ago.

The solar cycle will keep going up and down no doubt, but there's been a steady trend up for years longer than that, of the temperature going up. Then again the temperature isn't what we're worried about. What the problem is is the frequency of natural disasters.

So ONE scientist working on it said that? What about all the others?

Well from ice cores... the temperature was going fairly slightly and regularly up and down for most of human history, then hit a particularly big down in Medieval times, then has risen since then, but this time not stopped at the normal point.

Kajm Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer

Incorrect. From the last ice age, we jumped to a Major warming called the Holocene Climate Optimum. It was so warm that the Arctic was ice-free in the summer for Centuries.

There was then a rather huge dip in temperature called the Younger Dryas.

After that, came the second half of the Holocene Climate Optimum, which was a bit cooler than the first half. About this time is when a certain major forested region in Africa, began to become the Sahara Desert.

After another period of cooling (not sure the name), we had the Minoan Warm Period. Another cooling, and then the Roman Warm Period. Then the Dark Ages cooling. Then the Medieval Warm Period, which a great many research papers indicate, was warmer than we are currently, possibly as much as another 2C.

THEN. we see the big down called the Little Ice Age, which dropped as much as 4C from the warmest point of the MWP.

 

Since then, we've recovered about 2.5C of that - .8C in the last 140 years.

 

And just HOW do we even know what the 'normal' stopping point is? Again I note, temperatures have FLATLINED for the past 17 years, 5 months. A lot of skeptic scientists besides Landscheidt, have been saying we are heading into another cooling cycle, for years. And from what I've been seeing since 2006, we're heading into that cooling. And it could last until the end of the century. And things are going to potentially get as cold as the LIA.
