What Happened to Global Warming?

Assigned Reading: Climatologists Baffled by Global Warming Time-Out
(FROM: Der Spiegel)

The lead-in pretty much says it all:

Global warming appears to have stalled. Climatologists are puzzled as to why average global temperatures have stopped rising over the last 10 years. Some attribute the trend to a lack of sunspots, while others explain it through ocean currents.

The bold formatting is original, by the way. I didn’t add that. The article continues:

…The Earth’s average temperatures have stopped climbing since the beginning of the millennium, and it even looks as though global warming could come to a standstill this year.

Ironically, climate change appears to have stalled in the run-up to the upcoming world summit in the Danish capital, where thousands of politicians, bureaucrats, scientists, business leaders and environmental activists plan to negotiate a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

I did add the italics there. I couldn’t resist.

Here’s the takeaway: All of the climate change science is based on computer models for the climate. None of the models predicted this 10-year hiatus. So, none of the models are reliable. Heck, none of the climate models used by the global warming alarmists are even good enough to predict known values in the past — so, so much for their climate models.

Which means it’s time for scientists to admit the truth: they don’t actually understand the climate. They have no idea what is going to happen.

As we’ve discussed previously, however, the global warming movement is more religion than science, so don’t expect lack of evidence to slow the political activism. If anything, expect the hysteria to kick up a notch as the true believers try to drown out the increasing murmurs of doubt from everyday Americans.

    Jeff:

    This reminds me of Ecclesiastes 8:7which says "If no one knows what will happen, who can tell him when it will happen." NAS.

    Hugh,

    And John 3:17 (seventeen) shows Al Gores feeling superior to Christ himself.

    Just God's way of telling them, they're full of &^*%. Since they weren't listening at the cooling data and other scientist, God's going to make them look like idiots! Love it!

    Hi Robert -

    I love to hear this kind of report – I think more & more people will see the truth as more scientists dispute the "global warming" theory.

    Lilly – Your reply was my gut reaction after reading this – we have an Awesome God!

    Tyrannomac-

    Thanks very much for posting that. I checked your links and so far this looks legit. Could be huge.

    I'm going to keep looking into it and will probably cover this in an independent article on AR.

    It is INCREDIBLE. Both Robert and I are aware of it, and both of us are frustrated as can be that we can't immediately address it due to jobs, schoolwork, etc.

    Alas, the pitfalls of being part-timers.

    Check back soon, though — right now, the focus of our limited time may be health care, but we'll get something up on the global warming nonsense.

    Someone hacked into Britian's largest climate research center and obtained hundreds of damaging emails.

    It's no wonder the globe is so damned hot…. Al Gore told Conan the earths core is MILLIONS of degrees hot!

    (actually it's 12,600 degrees hot)

    When it comes to our tax dollars and the earths temperature, Dems and libs are very uneducated with numbers.

    All the climate warming-skeptic websites are buzzing about this. Here's another:
