Read here. Mass confusion and conflicted "consensus science" reigns supreme in the realm of AGW pseudo-science and the Gorian world-will-end style of hysteria. And it's all because the prophesied global warming has disappeared since 1998, throwing the ranks of the AGW-cult into fits of desperation.
Recently, we wrote about a peer-reviewed study (by scientists whom advocate human-caused global warming) that attempted to explain why global warming disappeared after 1998. In summary, their analysis blamed China's coal burning for the world's apparent cooling, which really does not hold up to close scrutiny.
Soon after, another group of global warming alarmist scientists released an analysis contending that China was not at fault for global cooling, but small, minor volcano eruptions were. This study, besides also confirming the global cooling that skeptics had identified a long time ago, seems to be another act of desperation by alarmists to explain away the inconvenient loss of global warming.
A major problem for these two studies, per the adjacent chart, is the fact that the Northern and Southern hemisphere's temperatures have behaved in opposing directions. One half of the world chooses slight warming since 1998, the other half votes for global cooling, so it would appear.
This inconvenient, empirical evidence readily invalidates the "global" in the global warming theory. It also invalidates both the China-is-causing-cooling and the minor-volcanoes-are causing-cooling aerosols speculation as causes for the lack of "global" warming since 1998.
