UK Met Office: "Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago"


What did I tell you?

I've been saying this since 2006; "Don't believe the hype." You know that anytime the government tells you that there is some kind of problem and the cure to that problem is more taxes from the pocket of you, the taxpayer, then it's time to be extremely skeptical.

I've learned this over 30 years of being in the mass media.

I've heard it all before. Not being the sharpest tool in the shed, it took me almost 20 years of being in that mass media before I figured out that one cannot believe what they are told.

My favorite saying is: "Eighty percent of everything you see or hear on TV is bullshit. The other twenty percent are commercials."

We have heard it all before. Just in the last decade or so; Iraqi troops were killing babies in Kuwaiti incubators; SARS was going to kill 150 million people; the Avian Flu was going to kill another 100 million more; Swine flu? Ditto. Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons... The list went on and on... They were all lies...

Then, another huge lie; the Global Warming farce.

I was broadcasting my complete skepticism about this one day on my morning drive time FM radio show here in Tokyo when a listener - a hard core believer in Global Warming religion - called the station and threatened to burn it down. I invited him over to do so and told him we'd be waiting for him with the Fire Department and the police.

He never showed up, of course.

Consider the idiocy: The ice bergs are all going to melt and raise the seas levels by 30 meters? What? Ice bergs float on water. They displace the weight of the water. If they melt the water wouldn't rise by a millimeter. When your ice melts in your drinks, does your cup run over?

That's the simple mindedness of the argument of the Global Warmist Cult.

People were scaring other people about Global Warming merely to increase taxes and to line the pockets of their friends with government grants for bankrupt industries like the Solayndra scandal.


Doing his part to fight global warming!

Well, they are all running around with their tails between their legs now. Now, enjoy these two tidbits (that certainly will not get enough press in the mass media) from the former front running leader of the Global Warming scare: The UK Metrological Office:


  • The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures
  • This means that the ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996
And....

British Press Acknowledges Antarctic Ice at Record Levels:

“Ice around the South Pole has expanded to cover a record area, scientists revealed yesterday – a month after saying that the North Pole had lost an unprecedented amount of its ice.”

They say the only two certain things in life are death and taxes. Yes. True. So, keeping that in mind, like I said, whenever there's a problem and someone shows up and says, 

"I'm from the government. And I'm here to help."

You should turn around and start running the other way.

Global Warming is going to kill us all? Ha! As my favorite financial blog Zerohedge says, "On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone is zero."

A little more data, from arch-anti-warmer Roy Spencer, provides some important context that David Rose is unconcerned about: http://www.drroyspencer.com/wp-content/uploads/UAH_LT_1979_thru_Sep_2012_v5.5.png

If I pour boiling water into your bath and then do not let the water get any hotter you are still going to get scalded even though the "warming trend" has ceased.

Too hot is too hot, even if it's a constant temperature.

If you are speeding at a constant 20 mph over the limit you will still get a traffic ticket even though you have stopped accelerating. Too fast is too fast, even if it's constant.

Fact: Arctic ice is thinning and disappearing.

Here in Canada our summer is extending far into Fall. We usually have cold and snow at this time of year.

Southern birds and animal species are being found further north than before. Forests are drier.

We may are not be getting global warming, but we are definitely getting global climate change at an accelerated rate.
