Worse for the model, that is
By Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun, February 15, 2009
This Daily Telegraph headline isn’t quite worded right:
Check the text:
IT seems the dire warnings about the oncoming devastation wrought by global warming were not dire enough, a top climate scientist says… “We now have data showing that from 2000 to 2007, greenhouse gas emissions increased far more rapidly than we expected,” said Chris Field, who was a coordinating lead author of the report.
Actually, what’s been “worse than expected” has been not “climate change” but the growth in man-made emissions. But here’s the curious thing: despite that unexpectedly high growth, temperatures have unexpectedly not budged for a decade.
Which suggests that “climate change’’ itself is not worse than expected, but less – if global warming theory is true.
