You can’t fool the youth

This is one smart young man who isn’t going to be brainwashed by Al Gore.

Yes, 2008 was the coldest year of the decade. There is ALWAYS a coldest year EVERY decade!

This decade has been 0.2 degrees Celcius warmer than 1990’s. That sounds like GLOBAL WARMING!

Then the kid talks about global sea ice levels. What he doesn’t realize is that there are polar bears only in the arctic region. Sea ice levels in arctic have been declining for decades and we’re now 2 million square kilometers below the long term average:

Check http://nsidc.org/sotc/sea_ice.html and especially this graph http://nsidc.org/sotc/images/mean_anomaly_1953-2008.gif

Also, long term averages in sea ice levels have been declining for decades. If ocean currents cause them to peak, that doesn’t have anything to do with global temperatures. Global temperatures have been rising very fast during the last decades. Sounds like global warming to me!

Back again trying to convince the world that cold = hot.

Yes the world warmed, but has started cooling recently, whilst co2 is at record high levels. What has been driving the climate in the last few years?

The Arctic sea ice extent has been increasing quite nicely lately.

I’ve already told you in other topics all this, you must have a short memory.

Yearly temperature data fluctuates a LOT because of ENSO and other ocean currents such as NAO. That cause year 1998 to be record warm.

Warming caused by CO2 can be easily seen in decadal data, but yearly data is way too short to measure it since raising CO2 level causes less than 0,05 W/m2 warming per year.

Also, TSI of the sun has been low lately, since solar cycle 24 is a bit late. That won’t stop the warming, only slowing it a bit.

If you talk about climate, it’s getting warmer all the time. If you talk about weather, then you can say that 2008 was colder than the previous years. But it doesn’t have anything to do with climate. It’s weather.

Record c02 is still no match for the El Nino year of 1998! But thank goodness for global warming. Can you image how cold this northern hemisphere winter would have been without all that “man-made” global warming. 😉

Climate vs Weather, yes that’s all explained very well in the post below:
