Now that the 2-week Copenhagen U.N. climate conference fiasco is over, much analysis will take place as to why the conference was such an abject failure. Although there are likely to be multiple valid reasons, few, if any liberal-leftist, will admit to the primary reason for the failure: that the global warming science was bogus and climate lies perpetuated the fraud.
Climategate exposed the really filthy linen of climate science, but that didn't keep the likes of Obama, Gore, Pachauri, Pelosi, Hugo Chavez, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and thousands of others, from repeating the same global warming lies that were a result of bogus/fraudulent science. In the end, these same leaders knew that the catastrophic global warming scenarios were based on deceit and lies, thus there was no true, compelling, scientific reason to solve a fabricated climate crisis.
There are several lies that public officials, "scientists," and activists used over and over in an attempt to build support within the mainstream media and the public. One of the principal lies that was very effective with the press and leftist pundits, but not with the public, was that global temperatures are "accelerating" and will reach climate model tipping points in the very near future. As the U.S. climate agency data reveals below, "accelerated warming" is a flat-out lie. (click on image to enlarge)
Global temperatures have increased since 1880 (and a portion of that increase is likely due to CO2), but there is no way to interpret accurately that global temperatures are "accelerating." And, if the warming bias adjustments made by the climate research agencies are removed (see thin blue curve) then the actual temperature increase since 1880 has been very modest.
In addition, if one examines various regional temperature readings from the 1820's, it becomes evident that global temperatures in the early 19th century, for the world's northern hemisphere, were warmer than our modern, late 20th century temperatures. That suggests modern temperatures may actually be in a cooling phase, relative to our recent historical past, instead of "accelerated warming."
