Global Warming Takes a Holiday, Scientists Are Weenies

At least, that's what National Public Radio is saying today.

Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren't quite understanding what their robots are telling them.


"There has been a very slight cooling, but not anything really significant," [Josh Willis at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory] Willis says.

Those are the only choices allowed. One, Global Warming is taking a breather, or two, scientists (in this case, some very smart guys doing actual science with empirical evidence gathering equipment) don't know how to read the data they've collected, i.e., they're stupid weenies.

There is no Option three. Option 3 is not allowed. What is option 3, you ask?

Option 3 says Global Warming is not happening, it's all a swindle, a scam, a con job, a bunco game, flimflam, shellgame, a hustle. At first blush this new evidence seems to bear that out. It also means that Mr. Al Gore, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for something having nothing to do with peace, is a big fat liar, a hustler, a flimflam man, a con man, a snake oil salesman. And a weenie.

Oh no, Glowball Warming™ was true till it started snowing a couple of minutes ago. But Glowball Warming™ is supposed to return by tomorrow in the morning.

Smart work about global warming. I have also a blog which give information about cause of global warming.

Good reading poonam sethi.

I choose option 3.

How long will it be before the screaming enviro-zealots try and spin this story as PROOF that global warming is real?

Indigo Red said...

Actually, Mike, the enviro-nazis, represented in the story by NPR, spun the evidece as more proof of Fried Earth, Man is Doomed rubbish immediately after the quoted portions.

The rest of the broadcast was how bad GW was going to get and how bad it already is. They spend time describing how high ocean levels will get and that in the past 50 years of heating the oceans have risen 1/2 inch around the globe just from the expansion of H2O when heated. Never mind the data showing the ocean temps have not change significantly.

Now if that doesn't make one scramble for higher ground, I don't know what will.

I also saw this mentioned on Fox News. As McCain has swallowed the global warming scam hook, line and sinker, I hope some of these new findings will wise him up.

Indigo Red said...

I hope so, Gayle. McCain has admitted to not being a money and economics guy, and I'm afraid he's not a science guy either.

Well somebody can come up here to Washington and shovel some of this Glowball warming off of my roof. Hmmmmph!
