100% of climate scientists now agree that accelerating global warming has robustly stalled- the IPCC's gold-standard UK HadCRUT global temperature dataset confirms what skeptical scientists have long publicly discussed
There no longer is any serious debate of the non-existence of dangerous, accelerating global warming from human CO2 emissions - literally, from all current climate empirical evidence, it does not exist.
In the scientific real world though, there is an abundance of peer reviewed, solid scientific evidence pointing conclusively to a future of both moderate temperature and climate change.
As the above chart reveals, atmospheric CO2 levels have constantly increased since 1990 - see recent CO2 charts here.
In contrast, the IPCC's gold-standard global dataset (above chart) confirms temperatures have stalled since 1998 - actually, they have slightly cooled at a -0.08 degrees/century trend.
The chart's solid blue curve is a simple three year moving average of non-scary global temperature change that current political elites conveniently ignores and the MSM refuses to report.
Current global temperatures are significantly below NASA's climate model and "expert" predictions - note the dotted red line on chart.
All the major climate agency computer models, based on human CO2 emissions, have failed spectacularly.
Modern weather disasters (e.g., blizzards, tropical storms, etc.) portrayed by political elites and MSM "reporters" as caused by "climate change" are the exactly the same bad weather disasters that took place during earlier periods of low atmospheric CO2.
If you have some free time this weekend, watch the video below to understand why the gathering of "elites" in Rio is such a gigantic waste...and read thesethreearticles, which cover why catastophic global warming is nonsense and why use of the term "denier" is wrong.
The global warming debate is over, not - this debate will never end but the latest polls show that empirical evidence the skeptics utilize wins the debate, and the alarmists, with their never-ending hysterical catastrophic claims, lose the public debate (and the public)
Adding to the malaise and misery of the advocates of Climategate doom and gloom science, the alarmists' climate models have proven to be consistently and robustly wrong.
The continuing preponderance of evidence that proves the alarmist chicken-little to be wrong has taken its toll, as the polls document. Indeed, the public at large is thumbing its collective noses at the hysterical claims proven to be without empirical merit.
Poll #1:"According to a paper published in the April 2012 edition of Nature Climate Change, the results of 74 different opinion surveys from 2002-2010 show US public concern about climate change reached a high point of 54% in 2007 and declined to about 44% in 2010."
Poll #2: "Swedish politicos ‘don’t buy climate change’...Six of ten local politicians in Sweden doubt whether human activity is to blame for global warming, a new study has found."
Poll #3: "Gallup asked Americans to say how much they worry about each of seven environmental problems. All show significantly less worry today than in 2000, when worry was at or near its high point for each item...Concern about global warming is lowest of the seven environmental issues tested..."
Poll #4:"'Fewer Americans today believe there is a scientific consensus than did so during the 2000s... after peaking in 2010, public skepticism about global warming softened slightly in 2011, and remains at lower level this year...Today's level of belief that global warming is similar to what Gallup found in 1997 & from 2001-2005' -- 42% say media exaggerate the seriousness, a higher amount than it was for much of the past decade'"
Poll #5: "According to the Lowy Institute's annual poll, Australians are losing their conviction on climate change. The last poll, published in June 2011 showed that just 41 per cent of those polled agreed with the statement, "Global warming is a serious and pressing problem. We should begin taking steps now even if this involves significant costs" down from a whopping 68 per cent in 2006."
Conclusion: The alarmist claim that the global warming debate is over dies on the jagged shoals of empirical evidence and public opinion. The continuous stream of catastrophic climate change scenarios and gross misinformation has proven to be non-effective. Thus, expect more of the same.
The FakeGate web site will remind Internet visitors forever of the lunacy and corruption of global warming alarmism pushed on the public without remorse by the left / progressive / green elites
Read here. The Daily Bayonet does an excellent job mocking the activist groups that made Fakegate not only possible but are also caught condoning the obvious corruption of climate science that took place.
"You almost have to feel sorry for the folks at DeSmogBlog...Their moment of glory after they revealed the Heartland Institute’s documents took only days to blow up in their faces, and they’ve been playing defense ever since...Brendan DeMille is upset that the shocking admission from a once-respected scientist that he committed fraud to obtain the documents became the story..."
And as a result, there is now a new web site, Fakegate.org, that will forever immortalize the global warming alarmism lies and deception that the National Center of Science Education, Huffington Post, DeSmogBlog, Greenpeace, ThinkProgress and the Pacific Institute have come to represent.
Is it any surprise that public opinion in regards to global warming concerns has plummeted in recent years because the never ending climate change fakery and dishonesty that these alarmist groups continuously push?
"Dealing with global warming ranks at the bottom of the public’s list of priorities; just 28% consider this a top priority, the lowest measure for any issue tested in the survey."
Thank you, green lunatics and leftist idiots!
“Basically, [the fake memo] reads like it was written from the secret villain lair in a Batman comic. By an intern.”
Read here. New Zealand's politicians seem to be firmly in the camp that the world-is-about-to-end due to "global warming" from human CO2-emissions. That level of alarmism is not representative of the populace, though, nor based on any "global warming" empirical evidence.
Per a recent survey, global warming/climate change ranks 9th out of 10 as a serious issue to be dealt with for New Zealanders. A clear 74% are unwilling to sacrifice their lifestyle for the AGW holy grail. And a full 80% believe that any CO2 regulations should not be allowed to impact employment.
So why do NZ's politicans and "climate scientists" push policies that are not representative of their citizens? Typically, this indicates a situation where the following phrase is apropos: "Follow the money..."
