That is the gist of the headlines from the UK Mail on Saturday (November 2nd). And, here are the opening lines of one of two stories that day:
The 17-year pause in global warming is likely to last into the 2030s and the Arctic sea ice has already started to recover, according to new research.
A paper in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics – by Professor Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr Marcia Wyatt – amounts to a stunning challenge to climate science orthodoxy.
Not only does it explain the unexpected pause, it suggests that the scientific majority – whose views are represented by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – have underestimated the role of natural cycles and exaggerated that of greenhouse gases.
Coincidentally on Friday, November 1st, President Obama announced the creation of a task force to combat global warming damage.
Makes me wonder if he needs to get the boys working on some more government projects (a little pork for friends) using the global warming bogey man before the public gets wind of this, among other stories, debunking the ‘science’ behind manmade global warming.
Also, in the UK Mail on the 2nd:
President Obama used his executive powers on Friday to create a ‘Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.’
Obama’s plan would be put in place through executive order, bypassing Congress, which has stalemated over climate legislation in recent years.
The task force will look at federal money spent on roads, bridges, flood control and other projects.
It ultimately will recommend how structures can be made more resilient to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and warming temperatures.
Look who is on the pork distribution task force. Oink! Oink! Oink!
The task force includes Govs. Jerry Brown of California, Jay Inslee of Washington and Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, as well as Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn.
The task force builds on efforts Obama announced in June to combat global warming, including the first-ever limits on climate pollution from new and existing power plants.
