What is it going to take? They deny their own data and insist fantasy is correct.
The MAIL Online writes today has an excellent report, and starts with:
The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years…based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations.”
Yet the MetOffice, the supplier of that data, says (the MAIL writes):
“…because the impact of the sun on climate is far less than man-made carbon dioxide. Although the sun’s output is likely to decrease until 2100, ‘This would only cause a reduction in global temperatures of 0.08C.’ Peter Stott, one of the authors, said: ‘Our findings suggest a reduction of solar activity to levels not seen in hundreds of years would be insufficient to offset the dominant influence of greenhouse gases.”
Is Stott sane, or what! What little reduction we’ve had in solar activity in just the last 4 years has already offset the GHG effect – no warming in 15 years! The MAIL writes:
In 2007, the Met Office claimed that global warming was about to ‘come roaring back’. It said that between 2004 and 2014 there would be an overall increase of 0.3C. In 2009, it predicted that at least three of the years 2009 to 2014 would break the previous temperature record set in 1998.”
Wrong on every count. And so what is their reaction? Here’s what the MAIL tells us:
But yesterday a Met Office spokesman insisted its models were still valid.
This is more than stupid – it’s hopelessly stupid. Even though the models don’t work, they insist they’re still valid. This is like saying the well is poisoned, but the water is still safe to drink!
The MAIL interviewed Nicola Scarfetta, who says that eventually they are going to have to admit they are wrong. Judith Curry was more direct, saying: “…the models may have severe shortcomings…’ and that “many scientists’not surprised'”.
Readers, if you like this Mail article, then you are going to like Sebastian Lüning’s and Fritz Vahrenholt’s book: Die kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun). The lay it all out. Only morons and blind ideologues will go on continuing to believe the CO2 bullshit.
