WEATHER OR NOT

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Things have cooled down in the global warm­ing in­dus­try now that new satel­lite data re­leased by Re­mote Sens­ing Sys­tems re­veals that the global mean sur­face tem­per­a­ture has not risen in 18 years. This data is the pri­mary re­source for NASA, NOAA, and the Na­tional Sci­ence Foun­da­tion, in­ci­den­tally. The find­ings are not in ac­cor­dance with the United Na­tions In­ter­na­tional Panel on Cli­mate Change pre­dic­tions. Yeah well. “When the end­less com­puter mod­els that pre­dicted warm­ing turned out to be wrong, you might think that the news me­dia would re­port this ex­tra­or­di­nary re­sult. When Hol­ly­wood ac­tors, econ­o­mists, and oth­ers with no back­ground in sci­ence con­tinue to pro­claim global warm­ing, we can feel con­fi­dent to dis­miss them,” says Alan Caruba, a pol­icy ad­vi­sor for the Heart­land In­sti­tute, and a long­time ob­server of the na­tion’s anx­i­ety trends.

“But the worst of this 18-year an­niver­sary of the lack of warm­ing is the fact we have a pres­i­dent, a sec­re­tary of state, and oth­ers in the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion who con­tinue not only to pro­claim warm­ing — now called cli­mate change — but sug­gest­ing that it is the great­est threat to the na­tion and the world,” Mr. Caruba adds. “The ab­sur­dity of this should hold them up to ridicule, but th­ese pro­nounce­ments are pub­lished with­out crit­i­cism.”
