Conservative radio talkshow host Rush Limbaugh’s countdown clock now shows less than 11 months to go before our blue oceanic planet starts sizzling for good.
Cropped from Rush Limbaugh site.
About a decade ago Al Gore was earnestly predicting the planet had only another 10 years if we failed to dramatically reduce our CO2 emissions. Well, we haven’t cut them at all. In fact CO2 emissions have grown very strongly since then.
Yet, so far the global mean temperature is not any warmer than it was 10 years ago, just before Gore made the bold prediction – see chart that follows. Same was true a year ago.

Countdown for what’s left of Gore’s reputation
Woodfortrees chart shows that global temperatures have not risen at all since Gore issued his warning. Ironically the countdown is actually turning out to be one for Mr. Gore’s reputation. In fact none of the predictions the Nobel Peace prize winner made in his Oscar-winning movie are coming true. There’s been no warming, and the poles even have more sea ice today – about 1 million sq. km more!
At his site Limbaugh quoted Larry David, husband of AIT producer Laurie David:
You know, Al is a funny guy, but he’s also a very serious guy who believes humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan.”
CO2 climate science, like all sciences, is also proving to be flat out wrong. The difference here is that there is so much at stake that no one wants to admit it.

My Lady has just told me that even if we have only 11 months to live, she still expects me to redecorate the spare room before The End.
You would think that the media would remind people, when only 11 months are left, so they could prepare for a carbon-free lifestyle starting in 2016. But no, they’re busy inventing war-on-women claims about Scott Walker.
Journalists! Wake up! This is the make-or-break moment for your role as saviours of the human race!
Also: Scientists! Wake up! This is the moment to choose between efficiency and honesty! (And I hope that means both)
11 months! Choose efficiency! Publish that scary but easy to understand prediction now! It will be too late next year!
I’m disappointed. I thought this article was about Al Gore’s fiery death in 11 months. /depressed.
Don’t forget Florida is to sink, New York will have 25 feet of water in Times Square, and last but not least the Polar bear is on the way out.
In fact the Polar bear population is on the rise. New York experienced the coldest winter in 100 year, and the water around Florida, where I winter, has remained the same for the past 10 years.
Where is big Al when you need him?
The “inconvenient truth” is that when low quality “science” aligns with political extremists and vested interests, it’s very powerful force. But the damage is does to the world’s economy and our freedoms is real. The greens will say it’s all good for us anyway, but that’s simply a lie.

Well, actually it is not the current 10-year trend since we now are in 2015 and the current trend still shows warming.
You are just cherry-picking.
The “inconvenient truth” is that climate “skeptics” are at odds with reality.
Right. And ISIS is peace.
Marcus…does this count as a trend in your view?
that is the past 10 years
