Evidence-based global-warming science?

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2014/01/03


Average global temperature has not increased during the last 15 years even as carbon dioxide levels have continued to grow:
Climate Scientist: 73 UN climate models wrong, no global warming in 17 years.

Moreover, Antarctic ice has become thicker when it was supposed to be thawing:
Global warming ‘pause’ may last for 20 more years and Arctic sea ice has already started to recover.

But of course all this has not shaken the faith in human-caused global warming — or at least it has not shaken the determination of science-bureaucrats, whose careers are vested in global-warming dogma, to try to convince us that 2 plus 2 (bits of carbon dioxide) equals 5 (degrees):
As its global warming narrative unravels, the IPCC is in damage control mode.

The following commentary makes delightful reading:
Global warming expedition to prove Antarctic ice is melting trapped by ice.

The attempts to rescue people on that ice-bound expeditionary ship, by ice breakers from Australia and China and the USA and ultimately helicopters from the Chinese vessel, have featured prominently on network and cable news. Strangely enough, I have not seen it pointed out in those “news” programs that the need to rescue flies in the face of global-warming dogma.

But then, “news” programs are not much given to enlightening the audience with context or even facts. TV “news” aims to attract as large an audience as possible by offering what the producers think will entertain — as acknowledged in the fine HBO series, “Newsroom”.
