Another alarmist puzzled by the lack of warming

Andrew Bolt Blog, March 27, 2010

Barack Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, has been certain we face doom from global warming:

Chu said Americans had yet to fully understand the urgency of dealing with climate change. “I don’t think the American public has gripped in its gut what could happen,” he told the Los Angeles Times in his first interview since taking the post. ”We’re looking at a scenario where there’s no more agriculture in California. I don’t actually see how they can keep their cities going.”

But now he’s not certain why that global warming has paused:

It’s fair to say we don’t understand these ripples.  We don’t understand the downward trend that occurred in 1900 or in 1940. We don’t fully understand the plateau in the last decade.
