Climate facts to warm to

Oh no! Science trumps the hype of the Left. What will happen now? I have this horrible image of little Leftist brains exploding as word of this gets out. The survivors of that will, of course, claim that the Earth and Sun are part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to make the Left look like morons. Like it takes a conspiracy to do that!

Climate facts to warm to | The Australian: "CATASTROPHIC predictions of global warming usually conjure with the notion of a tipping point, a point of no return.
Last Monday - on ABC Radio National, of all places - there was a tipping point of a different kind in the debate on climate change. It was a remarkable interview involving the co-host of Counterpoint, Michael Duffy and Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs. Anyone in public life who takes a position on the greenhouse gas hypothesis will ignore it at their peril.

Duffy asked Marohasy: 'Is the Earth stillwarming?'

She replied: 'No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you'd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years.'"
