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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
