"Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren't quite understanding what their robots are telling them."
The above is the first paragraph of a March 19 National Public Radio story (see link on Drudge--search Drudge for "global warming").
See the entries over the past few days on "global warming". The evidence is simply becoming overwhelming that the world is no longer warming.
Note the incredible propaganda BIAS that still exists in the mainstream media, and the pressure being applied upon scientists to avoid proclaiming the death of "global warming". Thus, the paragraph above casts doubt on the instrument readings and/or our interpretaion of them (doubt which is NEVER cast by the media on data supposedly supporting "global warming", even when scientists themselves cast doubt on the data--a recent study suggesting that fully halv of the supposed warming over the last cetury was the result of changes in measurement rather than real "warming").
The story goes on to try to cast doubt on the figures by suggesting that the years since 203 have been "among the warmest" on record (not, of course, 2007, for the U.S., or 2008 so far).
"Amond the warmest" on record DOES NOT CUT IT. If "global warming" "theory" is correct, we have to CONSTANTLY SET NEW RECORDS. That is the point of the data referenced in this blog's previous recent entries. The world may still be generally warmer than it was in the 19th Century (remains a GOOD THING), but the upward spurt in world temperature (which began somewhere around 1970, after a COOLING period from 1940-1970) has STOPPED. This is directly contrary to the hypothesis of Al Gore, and "global warming" thery, that the warming was going to ACCELERATE. There is obviously no "crisis", or need to destroy our economy to avert a "crisis", if the warming has STABILIZED.
As stated in previous entries, there are some indications that the Earth is even beginning to cool. Howver, even if temperatures have just stabalized at a realtively wrm level, what is wrong with that? It is hardly an emergency. Present temperatures are NOT unacceptably warm. They are not a severe problem, unless "global warming" models are correct that suggest a continuing acceleration of the warming. Since those models have been PROVEN incorrect over the past decade or so, what is the problem?
As stated in previous entries, the prolem is that "global warming" is ACCEPTED AS REVEALED TRUTH by the "establshment" (mainstream media included) at the very same time the data is proving that the "global warming" model (as was always obvious) is NOT adequate to explain "climate change" (or, in this case, lack of change).
