Global Warming’s Last Gasp
By: Philip V. Brennan, December 16, 2008
You folks in Fargo, N.D., who think you are shivering because it’s 11 degrees below zero are badly mistaken — according to the precious computer models global warming alarmists use, it can’t be that bitterly cold.
Their models show conclusively that the world is heating up. How can it be minus 11 degrees in Fargo? The models never showed it would get cooler.
Well it is, but they prefer to ignore such facts that might poke a large hole in their pet global warming theory that keeps their bank accounts fat and healthy with the grants that fund their researching of a scientific scam.
In the midst of an early winter vicious cold front that has plunged large areas of the northern United States into sub-zero temperatures, an Associated Press journalist has penned an absurd report warning that the world is in the process of being spit roasted by the alleged warming of the planet.
In a hysterical report, “Obama left with little time to curb global warming,” AP writer Seth Borenstein warned that global warming “is a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can’t avoid.”
He went on to repeat a series of discredited claims that allegedly prove that the earth is rapidly heating dangerously, claiming such nonsense that “Since Clinton’s inauguration, summer Arctic sea ice has lost the equivalent of Alaska, California, and Texas. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton’s second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it.”
NewsBusters’ associate editor, Noel Sheppard, rounded up comments by top climate experts disproving Borenstein’s claims.
“How can this guy call himself a ‘science reporter?’” asked David Deming of the University of Oklahoma. “He is perhaps the worst propagandist in all the media, and that’s stating something. In his latest screed, he screams: ‘global warming is accelerating.’
“How then does he explain the fact that the mean global temperature [as measured by satellite] is the same as it was in 1980? How can global warming be ‘accelerating’ when the last two years have seen dramatic cooling? Is this guy totally removed from all reality? He completely ignores any evidence contrary to his personal beliefs, and twists everything to meet his preconceived notions.”
Richard S. Courtney, a U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) expert reviewer and a U.K.-based climate and atmospheric science consultant snorted, “Rubbish! Global warming is not ‘accelerating.’ Global warming has stopped. There has been no statistically significant rise in [mean global temperature or MGT] since 1995 and MGT has fallen since 1998
