    Latest UNIPCC Chart Shows the Earth Has Been Cooling

    "We're now well into the second decade of the pause [in warming]. If we don't see convincing evidence of global warming by 2015, it will start to become clear whether the models are bunk. And, if they are, the implications for some scientists could be very serious." (Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation)

    While all of us here agree that humans at this point are not able to figure accurately a global temperature, by the current means the chart below shows that over the last fifteen-years there has been cooling - and that the trend for the last century is 0.008 degrees colder. (This is truly not what most of us had hoped for.)

    This has caused the not-so-reliable UK Met Office to declare that global warming ended after the great super El Nino of 1998 - yet to stick up for their so-far sadly inaccurate models (I suppose), they predict that warming will soon continue. However, we believe that it has never occurred in the first place. Unlike like NASA/NOAA, I have to give it to the Met for not going back and manipulating their temperature records to show a fake warming rather than a true cooling as NASA/NOAA has done.

    See here:

    I will add to this new information - anecdotally speaking - that after fighting to keep our freedoms for forty-years against those (when they were still Freezers) who want to steal those freedoms because they detest natural earth fuels - oil, gas, coal - that we have witnessed more dangerously cold weather around the world than dangerously hot.

    Perhaps one of the reasons fellow North Americans have not witnessed this same trend is that most of the weather medium in NA has become so zealous to show warming that they have catacornered reporting toward warming. This has been particularly noticeable the last couple of summers when much of the Southwest and South have suffered heat and dryness (for reasons having absolutely nothing to do with "global warming") - yet while the West Coast and Northwest have been cooler and wetter, national weather reporting has been strongly slanted toward the warmer and drier areas. However, It could be that the weather media, as do the news media, simply tend to report more negatives - but whatever the reason, they do it.

    While all of us here have known for quite a while that C02 could have little to no affect on climate temperatures, most of us have been hoping for a warmer planet. Imagine the days when Greenland was, well, green. Imagine if Greenland did indeed melt. It would be the most nutrient rich soil on the face of the earth. You could stick your big toe in it and it would grow.

    But even if Greenland were melting - and it is not - at the current rate claimed, according to a mathematician in our group, it would take 26,221 years to do so.

    As to what the Warmers who are following a political agenda will say regarding this news, they will claim that fifteen-years does not make a trend - etc. But the fact is, there has been more C02 pumped into the atmosphere during that period and that should mean - if their claims and predications were true - that the planet would be on a constant upward warming trend. And that would have to take place all over the planet - neither has been the case.

    Another thing they have to admit - the few of them who are not heretically fanatical - is that there must be other things going on that heat and cool the planet at various times. This they have been loath to admit.

    As I have been saying for years, the Warmers who are now Changers perhaps should have stayed Freezers - they then could have reported the weather from all over the world rather than cherry-picking hot and dry spots in a pathetic effort to convince mainly North Americans of their "global warming" claims.

    Let me repeat this finite: For a trend to be global, it must be occurring all over the planet very similarly - and warming is surely not doing that.

    This chart is most interesting.
