2008: The year man-made global warming was disproved?

Forget climate change. We now need to make sure we have enough energy, says Christopher Booker of the London Telegraph.

Booker writes that all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all the computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades. This winter, with the whole of Canada and half the US under snow, looks likely to be even worse. After several years flatlining, global temperatures have dropped sharply enough to cancel out much of their net rise in the 20th century.

His complete and fascinating article is available here.

There is no scientific consensus on this issue. More than 500 scientists have published evidence refuting the current man-made global warming dire predictions, according to an analysis of peer-reviewed literature by the Hudson Institute, as reported last year by WorldNetDaily.  More here.

    But this issue has been Al Gore’s mainstay, bringing him fame, fortune and great wealth. How dare anyone knock it?

    BTW, I lost several young plants and most of my flowers to the freeze last night and the icy grass crunched under my feet this morning. Global warming has come to the East valley!

    Jana, You may have a hard time selling that to one of global warmings biggest supporters, Juan McCain. One more area where the Republican nominee failed to differentiate himself from the Democrats.

    This comprehensive article by noted commentator and lecturer, Dr. Walter Williams bolsters what is written here.

    Referring to the computer models, I will observe that one of the central tenets of systems engineering is “all models are bad, but some are useful.”

    Models use past data to try to give a predictive guide to present and future behavior of a system. Such an approach is always going to be limited by the extent and quality of the data provided, not to mention any interpretative biases of those considering the data in the construction of the model.

    At present U.S. environmental and atmospheric “sciences” are largely cesspools of political propaganda, founded on questionable data and even more questionable interpretation, and committed to the reapportionment of private property through government takings and abuse of the judicial system. Global warming is one of the more recent “spins” in this overall endeavor. Caveat emptor.
