Thank God for Global Warming!
Fear is not an option!

One Slipped Through!

Oh No!

This is a disaster. A news story was published acknowledging that Global Temperatures are declining a bit. From the Scotsman.

World cooling – but scientists insist that warming is real

By Craig Brown

CLIMATOLOGISTS may insist the world is getting warmer and that climate change is here to stay.
But the meteorological phenomenon called La Niña, in which the central and eastern Pacific Ocean is getting cooler, means global temperatures will drop slightly this year.

La Niña’s influence on the world means average global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.

The phenomenon is sister to the better known El Niño, or the Little Boy, which appears when too little cold water rises to the ocean’s surface, causing the planet’s temperature to rise and bringing major disruption to weather systems.

La Niña has caused floods in Mozambique, and freezing temperatures in China.

David Parker, research scientist at the Met Office’s Hadley Centre, which studies climate change and variation, said La Niña was part of the natural cycle of the world’s seas.

“It happens of its own accord, and eventually, when it finishes, the effect wears off and the world’s temperature will rise again,” he said.

“While it is in effect, the world temperature will cool by a quarter of a degree, which isn’t a lot, given that we’ve had a half to three-quarters of a degree warming already, but it’s quite a chunk relative to the global warming we’ve had so far.”

He added that though Britain had not felt the full force of La Niña’s influence, it would affect the country’s weather.

“It means that the climate will be colder, but it has different effects across the world,” he said. “We had a mild winter this year, which to some extent goes along with La Niña.

There’s also a greater than average chance of a damper summer – which I think the Met Office has already forecast – but not to the same extent as last summer. In fact, last summer’s damp weather was probably connected with La Niña.”

However, Mr Parker said that it was wrong to believe the drop in temperatures meant global warming was not a reality.

“You have to be very careful how you look at these figures; 1998 was an El Niño year. The current temperature was unusually warm for then. Now we have a La Niña and it’s unusually cool compared with trends nowadays. If you take a trend over ten years, you don’t get a warming, but that’s too short a period in which to get a trend.”

“In a proper long-term sense we are on a warming trend.

“The expectation is that the temperature of the world is going up and up. There’s n

o evidence that global warming isn’t happening.”

The World Meteorological Organisation has pointed out that the decade from 1998 to 2007 was the warmest on record. Since the beginning of the 20th century the global average surface temperature has risen by 0.74C.

Dr Neil Wells, senior lecturer in oceanography at the National Oceanography Centre at Southampton University, said: “It is a major event because it is so vast – it is one of the major causes of weather variation. It redistributes heavy rain where you wouldn’t expect it. Northern Australia tends to be affected by it. The evidence that climate change has affected it just isn’t strong.

“We know this has happened for thousands of years – the flow of the Nile has been recorded as being affected by it – and that it has gone through various long period cycles, but we cannot say that climate change has been affected.”

As you can see, everyone seems more concerned about protecting their positions than they are about the environment.

It’s all about winning or convincing other people to agree with their position, even in the face of evidence pointing the other way. For some, belief in Global Warming is a faith of a religious type. The believers are so invested in the movement that any disagreement with them about it is a threat to them.

This admission of a slight downward movement in Global Temperatures does not prove anything either way. It reinforces my view of the world as an engine whose variations tend to be cyclic in nature rather than linear.

A report about a warming trend also reinforces this belief. It is bases on other beliefs I have and are not a product of scientific research or political ambition.

My goal with this little site is to point out how dishonest this Global Warming Movement is. Those who sell doom and gloom are not being honest about their beliefs or agendas. If this theory went away, these leaders of the movement would find some other doom and gloom theory to sell to the general public. That’s because doom and gloom aligns with their World View and beliefs. It is who they are. Not everyone who listens is this way but the leaders are playing on people’s fears. Doom and gloom are not hard to sell. Even if they are hard to prove.

Put the doom and gloom out of your mind for a little while and have a great day in spite of them.
