...somebody tell Michael Bloomberg he'll have to find something else (or somebody else) to blame for his rank incompetence and insensitivity before, during, and after Hurricane Sandy.
Thank God for the foreign press - the Daily Mail UK details a report quietly released by the British government:
The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.
The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.
This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
Check out the scam -and the chart:
This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.
Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.
Surprised the British government didn't use 2006 as their year for "most recent available reliable data..."
Look, folks - global warming is a hustle, perpetuated by liberal governments and second-rate scientists. It's a way for liberals to claim that the moral high ground insists that they tax everything they just conveniently happen to hate - big businesses, oil companies, SUVs, point-of-purchase gasoline, and so on - so that this money can be redistributed to people and places who need it to "cope with climate change". Which are usually liberal constituencies and corrupt third-world nations. And of course, funding must be protected - increased, really - to the scientific establishments that continue to do the warming "research" that buttress the government's claims to legitimacy.
Which is why these same "scientists" fly into a fury when legitimate research countering their narratives appear. And that's why these "climatologists" rarely discredit the factual basis behind these papers, but instead attack the people who produced it. These scientific shysters are scare spitless over the prospect of their crooked game being exposed - where else are they going to get the fame and acclaim they receive now, as government lackeys? Certainly not by doing actual (shudder)....science!
Call it global warming, call it climate change - either way, it's just a cash grab, a confidence game, a long con, a sucker's game, a sting, a fraud, and/or a racket run by the government with some accomplices in white lab coats, with the aim of relieving you and others of their hard-earned money so that they can spend some on their friends and keep the res for themselves.
So the next time you see a politco or a talking head going on and on about the dangers of global warming, act the same way you would if you encountered a street-corner Three-Card Monte player: Ignore them, and keep walking straight ahead.
And if you're inclined...call a cop.
