Scientists: Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago

It was all hot air.

New scientific data reveals the world stopped getting hotter 16 years ago.
The Daily Mail reported:

The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.

Thsi follows an earlier report this week by scientists that global warming means more ice.

    re: It was all hot air.

    no, it was a plot to proffer off of taxing carbon, it still is, only they
    need to go in a different direction in order to get there, but trust
    me, they won’t stop trying, like AQ, they’ll just change their name
    and open with a different front so to speak..

    besides, they’ve already made their windfalls and ran.. /s/

    I wonder if and when we will hear alarmist cries about the impending ice age … again!

    You won’t be needing that Nobel Prize anymore Al. Yeah, we recounted the votes like you said and it turns out you lost by 537. Again! BTW, your theory is garbage. Hey, even stooges like us have limits!

    Obama to Coal Miners: “McDonalds is Hiring!”


    “No worries,” the President responded, smiling smugly. “The unions love me—all the miners will vote for me anyway—even without jobs. They realize there is a more important goal here than merely feeding their families—“

    “—which is?”

    “My re-election of course!”

    “What then do you tell the miners, given the fact that hundreds of coal companies have gone out of business due to your War on Coal and thousands of miners in Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and elsewhere have lost or will lose their jobs because of it?”

    “McDonalds is hiring. Sure they may be flipping burgers, but they will be happy knowing that the air is a bit cleaner and that I am President for another four years.”

    That headline must be wrong. They can’t be scientists. All scientists agree that Global Warming is destroying the world.

    Global warming, global cooling, ummmmm…..climate change, causes more rain, less rain, more ice, less ice, more storms, milder weather, halitosis, psoriasis, dandruff, painful rectal itch….you name it, the true-believing idiots will find some doofus “scientist” who will categorically declaim some dubious cause and effect of man inhabiting the planet.

  • Squawk! Squawk! Run for the hills! It’s global stasis! All economic and industrial activity must stop right now, to fend off the dreaded Global Stasis! Squawk!!

  • Oliver

    and this is news to whom? oh yeah, the entire left and all the greenies.

    I hope everyone watched the Fox Special “Obama’s Green Economy” this weekend. Truly scary stuff, especially the part on the true meaning of “sustainability”.

    Proof: Establishment Media Controlled by Government

    ‘Timeline to Global Governance’

    The First Global Revolution: Blueprint for a new global order

    “In searching for the new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for cause. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changing attitudes and behaviors that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”

    I’m still betting on it getting warmer. We are in a relatively cool period right now and the atmosphere is severely CO2 deficient.

    It’s not our fault and it’s not our problem. Nobody will ever have to prepare for a change. Nobody will ever see the change. The climate is the climate. Al Gore is an idiot.

    Got Coal?

    16 years ago?

    Isn’t that about the time Obama entered politics?

    He is so AWESOME. Has he made the sea levels go down yet?

    But people like Al Gore pushing this junk science have made BIG MONEY off of it, and refuse to live lifestyles that are in line with the teachings of their junk science.

    Obama Years Ago Helped Fund Carbon Program
    He Is Now Pushing Through Congress

    [In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.

    During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”]

    Proposed UN Environmental Constitution For The World Would Establish An Incredibly Repressive System Of Global Governance

    [Essentially what this proposed environmental covenant does is it takes
    the sustainable development principles underlying Agenda 21 and turns
    them into global constitutional law.

    All parties to this new constitution would be forced to turn their nations
    into centrally-planned societies where all decisions about everything are
    evaluated within the framework of sustainable development.

    If the United States became a party to this treaty, America would
    become a paradise for control freaks. Basic decisions about what
    you eat, about what you wear, about where you live, about how
    big a family you can have and about what activities you could
    engage in on a daily basis would be dictated by the mandates in
    the global constitution.

    If you doubt this, just read the document.]

    aah, so many dots that connect, and i have done my best
    to connect them, so please, follow the links, thank you..

    Notice that all the records that purport to show a relation between rising temperatures and increasing “greenhouse gas” production start with 1957. If that seems an odd place to start, it’s because it was the coldest year on record for some 30 years, so starting there makes any later average temperatures seem like they’ve risen more than they actually have.

    When “scientists” have to pull tricks like that, or “hiding the decline” of temperatures or the Medieval Warming Period, it should be a red flag that what they are selling is anything but science.

  • Oliver

    #17 DWD – a good clue was when Al bought a multi-million dollar estate on the California coastline shortly after saying the oceans were rising and all coastal properties would disappear within 5 years. Not even Al is that stupid.

  • the earth goes through alternating cooling and warming periods roughly every 20 years. the media is generally 10 to 15 years behind the trend.

    i still want to know if the earth were really getting warmer why is a one world communist government the solution? especially given that the biggest polluters in history have been the communist countries.

    Well, no one told Al Gore about this, obviously.

    Yet he has become a mufti-millionaire anyway exploiting his crazy : “Inconvenient Truth” lies (a movie that most incoming college freshmen say they have seen at least four times before entering college)….

    And let’s NEVER forget the Cap and Trade Bill that ALMOST passed Congress in 2009.

    If Obama is re-elected (and before he will be certainly impeached for the Benghazi Cover Up), he will probably push hard to get this last attack on American’s wallets pushed through. The profiteering croney Dems will push hard for it, trust me.

    The one thing about Cap and Trade that Obama almost got to sign into law in 2009 that sent us through the roof: We would no longer be able to sell the home we’ve lived in for 26 years until our home was fully insulated to meet the law’s regs and until we had installed an electric outlet for electric cars on our property. We don’t even have a garage – what the heck will this cost us?

    Well not to worry. The Cap and Trade bill said the government would just deduct the costs of all the necessary energy improvements from our home equity before we actually get to sell our house.

    The Cap and Trade Bill that Congress almost passed is one the most expensive bills with very under-reported consequences that our country has ever encountered.

    Be afraid – very afraid – of another four years of Obama. This Cap and Trade Bill will resurrect because so many political fossils will get so rich in passing it through to unknowing Americans,

    “…1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.”
    I lived in Minnesota during the mid 70’s and have vivid memories of hype over global cooling.

  • mg4us

    Will someone demand Gore refund all those contributions and honoraria for false advertising!

  • Chris Light

    Humans are a pimple on the ass of the Earth’s life cycle. We have only been here for a short time, yet we think we know everything. Sure science tells us a lot, but when the science is inadequate to accurately predict the Earth’s future, then we shouldn’t be fudging the numbers to get our wanted outcome. But money and pride will make people do a lot.

  • tj

    So now.. we need to repeal ALL laws which were based on the junk science… right?

  • UpChuck.Liberals

    Sadly the thieves in Sacramento California are still on the Carbon Tax wagon. Trying to steal every last nickel of the citizens here. I’m surprised that Obummer is moving to Hawaii after he loses in November, I’d thought he’d move to the Socialist Paradise that is Calif. Much closer to his twisted view of the world.
