Global Quackery: Earth Has Not Warmed for the Past 19 Years, New Study Finds
By: Joseph Curl
We are bombarded with “facts” every day: This is the “hottest [pick a season] ever”; the ice caps are at a record low; we’ll all be dead in 10 years.
For former president Barack Obama, the ever-changing and often contradictory “facts” about global warming (which liberals now call climate change because the globe stopped warming) was simply “settled science.”
But now it turns out the Arctic sea ice is thicker than ever and, oh yeah, the global temperature trend has not warmed for 19 years. That’s right — 19 years!
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK has published a fascinating article detailing data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
Ever since December temperatures in the Arctic have consistently been lower than minus 20 C. In April the extent of Arctic sea ice was back to where it was in April 13 years ago. Furthermore, whereas in 2008 most of the ice was extremely thin, this year most has been at least two metres thick. The Greenland ice cap last winter increased in volume faster than at any time for years.
As for those record temperatures brought in 2016 by an exceptionally strong El Niño, the satellites now show that in recent months global temperatures have plummeted by more that 0.6 degrees: just as happened 17 years ago after a similarly strong El Niño had also made 1998 the “hottest year on record”.
This means the global temperature trend has now shown no further warming for 19 years. But the BBC won’t be telling us any of this. And we are still stuck with that insanely damaging Climate Change Act, which in this election will scarcely get a mention.
The author then goes on to decry the very real consequences to businesses and citizens from goverments continuing to enact ever more stringent regulation to offset this global “warming.” But the real findings of the DMI are significant. The liberal media might take issue with a U.S. think tank funding a study that says global warming doesn’t exist — or at least hasn’t for 19 years — but they’ll accept the findings from little ol’ Denmark, won’t they?
By the way, the headline of the Telegraph article was perfect: “Another Arctic ice panic over as world temperatures plummet.” Exactly. Watch the MSM networks and websites for this report — and then ponder why they never ran it….
