The Settled Science of Global Warming: There Isn’t Any

Doug Ross @ Journal: THE SCIENCE IS SETTLED: No Global Warming For Nearly 18 Years

Remarkably, the El Niño warming of this year has not yet shortened the Great Pause, which, like last month, stands at 17 years 10 months with no global warming at all.

Taking the least-squares linear-regression trend on Remote Sensing Systems’ satellite-based monthly global mean lower-troposphere temperature dataset, there has been no global warming – none at all – for 214 months. This is the longest continuous period without any warming in the global instrumental temperature record since the satellites first watched in 1979. It has endured for about half the satellite temperature record. Yet the Great Pause coincides with a continuing, rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration.

..Yet the length of the Great Pause in global warming, significant though it now is, is of less importance than the ever-growing discrepancy between the temperature trends predicted by models and the far less exciting real-world temperature change that has been observed…

Now come the shrieking hysterics to explain why “no global warming” actually means “global warming, we’re all gonna die!”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Oh, but there is global warming — anthropogenic global warming. The extra heat has been pumped into the deep ocean, where we don’t measure it, through some as-yet-unknown means. But never mind that, the science is settled. When the ocean’s heat reservoir is full and the ocean stops being a heat sink and becomes a heat provider, we’re all gonna die, you bet.

    • When the Sun goes into Red Giant phase, this planet will be within the corona sphere of the star. It will boil the water off the planet. But that’s in another 4 billion years. By that same logic, we MUST kill the sun, or at least tame it so the Reg Giant phase doesn’t come about.

      • I’m not worried about the Sun and its likely self-destruction. Let’s face it, with the anti-human policies of certain politicial parties, humanity is unlikely to live long enough for any solar changes to have any effect on us.
