“U.K. Energy Secretary Attacks Climate Skeptics Before Bill Vote” is the headline at Bloomberg here.

U.K. Energy Secretary Ed Davey will make his strongest attack yet on climate change skeptics he accuses of purveying a what he calls a ‘seductive’ and’dangerous’ message that global warming has stopped.”

Davey

Sir Clueless Ed

Davey insists that global warming hasn’t stopped. Yet, a number of prominent warmist scientists don’t agree with the fear-stoking politician. Reader Jimbo sent me a list of comments from climate scientists acknowledging that the warming has stopped. Some of these scientists even recognised this years ago already.

Phil Jones saw it 8 years ago! Here’s Jimbo’s list:

5 July, 2005
The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world had cooled from 1998. OK it has but it is only 7 years of data and it isn’t statistically significant…,” Dr. Phil Jones – CRU emails.

7 May, 2009
“No upward trend…has to continue for a total of 15 years before we get worried,” Dr. Phil Jones – CRU emails.

15 Aug 2009
“…This lack of overall warming is analogous to the period from 2002 to 2008 when decreasing solar irradiance also countered much of the anthropogenic warming…,” Dr. Judith L. Lean – Geophysical Research Letters.

19 November 2009
At present, however, the warming is taking a break.[…] There can be no argument about that,” Dr. Mojib Latif – Spiegel.

19 November 2009
It cannot be denied that this is one of the hottest issues in the scientific community. [….] We don’t really know why this stagnation is taking place at this point,” Dr. Jochem Marotzke – Spiegel.

13 February 2010
Phil Jones: “I’m a scientist trying to measure temperature. If I registered that the climate has been cooling I’d say so. But it hasn’t until recently – and then barely at all.”
BBC: “Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming?”
Phil Jones: “Yes, but only just.”

2010
“…The decade of 1999-2008 is still the warmest of the last 30 years, though the global temperature increment is near zero…,” Prof. Shaowu Wang et al – Advances in Climate Change Research.

2 June 2011
“…it has been unclear why global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008...,” Dr Robert K. Kaufmann – PNAS.

18 September 2011
There have been decades, such as 2000–2009, when the observed globally averaged surface-temperature time series shows little increase or even a slightly negative trend1 (a hiatus period)…,” Dr. Gerald A. Meehl – Nature Climate Change.

14 October 2012
We agree with Mr Rose that there has been only a very small amount of warming in the 21st Century. As stated in our response, this is 0.05 degrees Celsius since 1997 equivalent to 0.03 degrees Celsius per decade.” Source: metofficenews.wordpress.com/, Met Office Blog – Dave Britton (10:48:21) –

30 March 2013
“…the five-year mean global temperature has been flat for a decade,” Dr. James Hansen – The Economist.

7 April 2013
“…Despite a sustained production of anthropogenic greenhouse gases, the Earth’s mean near-surface temperature paused its rise during the 2000–2010 period…,” Dr. Virginie Guemas – Nature Climate Change.

22 February 2013
People have to question these things and science only thrives on the basis of questioning,” Dr. Rajendra Pachauri – The Australian.

27 May 2013
I note this last decade or so has been fairly flat,” Lord Stern (economist) – Telegraph.

Many are using the word “pause” or “break” to describe the recent trend because they refuse to believe their theory is failing before their eyes. But this is only the language of denial.

Even the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) admitted that the warming has stopped and are puzzled by it: “In the years leading up to the year 2000, the temperature curve rose very sharply. But since then it isn’t rising so, in fact it’s not rising at all, the curve. The average temperature has stagnated at a very high level – we sort of have a plateau, and that during a time when CO2 emissions have risen considerably.” (2013)

And even the prince of climate darkness himself, Hans Joachim Schellnhuber conceded in April that the “pause” may even continue another decade!

Many insist that it’s only a pause, and that temperature will resume climbing with abandon once the hidden heat comes out of hiding deep somewhere in the ocean. But that’s pure speculation with no data to back it up. Right now the atmospheric data and observations are clear:

WARMING HAS STOPPED.

    Davey was on Daily Politics raving on about having to decarbonise economy.

    He didn’t mention temperatures or warming, just we have to decarbonise economy.

    Why?

    Well that’s on a need to know basis and you don’t need to know – neither do I apparently

  2. DirkH

    He probably wants to become a Eurocrat. Before he can do so he must prove his iron determination to ignore reality.

      Shame we have got a like button on here. I could have clicked it several times.

      Strange, I noticed last night that I can no longer comment on the Telegraph site. I was going to join in the conversation. I noticed another blogger talking about censorship on the Davey article from yesterday. It seems that the Telegraph might be blacklisting some people.

    If you stand before court, you always can try to save your skin by bluffing. By an incredible coincidence all facts are against you. Sometimes that is true and therefore bluffing is an option. It is also an art requiring the right emotions. You might say that you considered to commit suicide (Jones after climategate) or that every night you are crying in your bed about the fate of mankind (Suzuki). It is not clever to insult your opponents (Davey).

  4. Harry Dale Huffman

    “Clueless” is the current easy euphemism in the West (for “experts” as much as ordinary folk), to avoid recognizing a determined enemy.

  5. DirkH

    O/T Against wishes of the German government (that is the official version) the EU commission decides to start trade war with China by imposing penalty tariffs on Chinese PV modules because of dumping.
    http://www.dw.de/gr%C3%BCnes-licht-f%C3%BCr-solar-strafz%C3%B6lle-gegen-china/a-16858134

    As Germany is the last force keeping the EU solvent it is up to anyone’s guess what really went on behind the scenes. A few days ago German solar millionaire Asbeck of SolarWorld was in Brussels lobbying for the trade war…

  6. GrumpyDenier

    I think it’s safe to say that we have reached a point where the global warming bandwagon is down to being dragged along on its axles. The wheels were never fixed on very strongly but the latest outpourings simply prove how weak the hypothesis always was.

    When I was a school kid and the general election party posters appeared, I (and others) systematically removed all the blue and yellow ones leaving the red ones in place. Later, as I saw the values of the labour party I realised it was a msitake, and my first vote went to the yellow Libs. The rise of Thatcher confirmed I was a Lib, but as I understood the hippie culture, CND, LSD, 2CVs etc, the yellows seemed a bit, well, liberal and rooted in nothing. Finally I was forced to vote for the Blues, the good old Tories. My hand could barely put the cross in the box, it was agony, it felt like a U-turn. I was ashamed that I had to do it, and never told anyone.

    It seemed like a muddle at the time, but at least it was possible to see real differences between these parties. Now, nothing really changes no matter who you vote for. The only one who makes sense is Farage of UKIP.

    1. J Martin

      I agree that nothing ever seems to change in UK politics, no party that gets into power ever has the gumption (guts) to do anything real or stand up to political correctness. Which is why I haven’t voted for 15 or more years.

      But it looks as if Farage and UKIP might actually be different. I think I might even vote next time. Though I am oposed to withdrawal from the EU, we just need to refuse some of their obviously stupid rules / laws, we are after all, a soveriegn nation.

      1. DirkH

        The EU is undemocratic, nothing is done to change that, and it has proven to be harmful to the economies – more than 60% youth unemployment in Greece. Not even the quite incapable politicians of Greece have ever managed that on their own. You want to be part of that? Heck I’m German, we’re calling the shots yet not even I would want to be part of that – I wasn’t asked unfortunately.

    Davey is a typical eco-radical puppet that has no understanding of the full spectrum of science underlying climate. In clear defiance to the scientific method, he has cherry-picked that which supports his political dogma to justify his rant against those he cannot convince with empirical data.

    It is becoming increasingly obvious that the left and right are going to have to part company politically while they can still tolerate each other’s existence. I would gladly exchange America’s bureaucratic socialists for Europe’s libertarians and conservatives.

    Asbeck? – nicknamed “the Sun King”, who bought Thomas Gottschalk’s (Germany’s #1 TV game show host until 2011) feudal castle, complete with 100,000 square meters of parkland, for some million €€ while driving the largest German PV producer into insolvency? Seems like we are in need a monarchy: kings were always the natural enemy of the aristocracy.

    I can’t wait to see what comments we get from the mainstream climate simpletons once cooling starts to look like it means business, hopefully as we finally start to slide down from the current solar plateau in a few years time.

    1. Jimbo

      I’m waiting to start a cooling list of statements. 🙂 Oh wait, Jones.

  12. TheJollyGreenMan

    James Dellingpole of the Daily Telegraph just called the remarks of Ed Davey silly. Just plain old silly.

    And also mentioned the financial interest Davey has in renewables.

  13. Will Haas

    Computer models, 30 years ago, predicted that temperatures would be higher than they are today and still climbing. The models cannot possible be wrong so it is nature that must be wrong. The IPCC should sue Mother Nature in court and force a climate correction through the legal system.

    Now, nothing really changes no matter who you vote for. The only one who makes sense is Farage of UKIP

    And that is the dilemma for the Brits. 3 identical parties run by 3 identical idiots for 3 identical reasons. Sadly, UKIP is not yet ready for government in it’s present form

    Even if you were asked the decision would have been the same. The french voted NON and their governmnt ignored them, so did the irish, the swedes and the danes, Sans faire rien, their governments took them in.

    There is a tipping point coming and it will almost certainly start in germany. That tipping point is the break down of the EU. Some years yet but it will come.

    Unfortunately your government signed a treaty that they cannot legally reject. Only the germans have the right to leave without penalty.

    1. J Martin

      I don’t want the UK to leave the EU. I just want to take the good bits and refuse the bad bits. If the UK wants to eject suspect terrorist sympathisers back to whatever country they came from we should do so, ignoring any human rights courts that seek to protect the terrorists rights to kill us, but deny us our rights to protect ourselves.

      If that puts us in breach of the signed treaty, then tough, we are in breach. What are they going to do, send in a European army ? The UK is a sovereign country and has an inalienable right to self determination that should not be prostituted on the altar of European political madness.

      1. DirkH

        ” What are they going to do, send in a European army ?”

        The Lisbon treaty contains the provision that the EU may use lethal force to quell uprisings.

      Stephen, how does Germany have a right that the UK doesn’t? Is there a legal difference?
