We already know that the global warming alarmists have quietly been changing their alarmist language about the climate from “man-made global warming will kill the planet” to “climate change” (no kidding the climate changes! did you know that!) is caused by human activity.”
I remember very clearly how scared the environmentalist were in the mid 1970’s when Time magazine ran a couple of stories about the pending ice age, here (Newsweek too, here). They weren’t worried about their global warming hypothesis being shot to hell, they hadn’t yet settled on that theory as a means to control us. It was more like OMG we are going to die!
Now comes word, hat tip Gateway Pundit, that new statistics have been quietly released that indicate, oops! it definitely is not warming across the globe!
From The Mail:
The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.
The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century. [go to the article and check out the painting of an ice fair on the Thames in 1684–ed]
Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.
Time magazine could now just recycle its cover stories from nearly 4 decades ago!
As for you, throw away the bike, drive a big honkin’ (polluting) SUV—save the planet from freezing!
