Spiegel here writes 2011 global CO2 emissions have just been released – a new (modern) record!
It sounds like a broken record played year after year after year…”CO2 emissions break a new record!” And year after year we are shown the chart depicting atmospheric CO2 concentrations (see below) accompanied by grave warnings that the greenhouse gas is out of control.
And year after year, they neglect to show us the superimposed temperature chart over the last 15 years, i.e. since the CO2-global warming scare began in earnest. The reason is obvious: Yes, take a look!

There’s not a damn bit of correlation. CO2 hasn’t had any warming effect whatsoever. CO2 up, temperature down! Why are you (Spiegel) too stupid to see that?
Globally in 2011 a gigantic 34 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide were emitted – thus the burden on the Earth’s atmosphere reached a record level, reports the International Economic Forum for Regenerative Energies. The figures leave little room for interpretation.”
Spiegel adds that experts at the Dutch Environmental Research Institute PBL confirmed the trend, and that the “promises for reductions at the climate summits of the last years have hardly yielded anything”.
What the hell are you talking about? Temperatures haven’t risen at all. Isn’t that the result you wanted to begin with? What more could you possibly want? We are talking about only a few molecules of CO2 per million.
Not surprisingly, Spiegel forgets to mention that global temperature in 2011 fell about a “gigantic” 0.2 degrees.
In fact, I repeat, global temperature hasn’t risen at all in 15 years. How come? Natural factors stopped playing a role, remember?
