NOAA Admits Global Warming On Hold.

Now THIS is the change I’ve been waiting for!!!! NOAA scientist reluctantly admits we may be in a cooling phase and the current climate models may be broken.

“This [cooling] is nothing like anything we’ve seen since 1950,” Kyle Swanson of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee said. “Cooling events since then had firm causes, like eruptions or large-magnitude La Ninas. This current cooling doesn’t have one.”

There have been a few details that have long bothered me about the way many have approached the theory that man-made CO2 is causing out of control warming. (1) CO2 has not been shown in paleoclimate records to cause climate warming – it has been the other way around; warming has caused the elevation of CO2 levels. (2) In the 130’ish years of what we consider accurate temperature measurement we have had two major warming periods, the first from 1910 to 1940, and the second from 1980 to 2001. Both warming trends occur at a similar pace and for a similar duration, yet excessive man-made CO2 can only explain the second temperature rise, while the first is vaguely attributed to natural variation, but there is no explicit cause. They have said that the sun enplanes it, but that was not an accepted certainty even before this paper came out. It redefines the way that total solar irradiance is measured, which means that the current predictive climate models need to be recalculated. More in this here.
