NOAA & NCDC Publish Data That Has Global Warming Trend Reaching An Increase of Only +0.95 Degree By 2100
Read here. A couple of month's ago we provided several charts using the new Ben Santer 17-year rule of global warming. Those charts clearly indicated that Ben's hysterical, runaway global warming fears (and the IPCC's) were not related to any empirical climate reality.
Unfortunately for "Gentle" Ben, as this latest adjacent 17-year chart of NOAA/NCDC global temperatures reveals [Excel produced], global warming remains insignificant over the past 17 years, ending as of October 2011; and global temperatures continue a trend towards cooling, while CO2 levels keep growing at a robust pace.
The linear trend of the data implies a barely noticeable warming increase of +0.95C degree by year 2100.
This up-to-date 17-year empirical evidence is irrefutable and confirms the catastrophic global warming skeptics position.
Soooo....why does Ben Santer keep pushing the "CO2-causes-runaway-global-warming" schtick that is without any empirical merit?
Hmmm....would assurring that the free taxpayer, global warming research monies keep on flowing be the likely cause?
