Meanwhile in climate alarmist land, not such good news …

Nonetheless we’ll hear the usual suspects try to claim “scientific consensus” when the UN issues its next IPCC report.  But in reality:

The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year. More than 20 yachts that had planned to sail it have been left ice-bound and a cruise ship attempting the route was forced to turn back.

Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.

The disclosure comes 11 months after The Mail on Sunday triggered intense political and scientific debate by revealing that global warming has ‘paused’ since the beginning of 1997 – an event that the computer models used by climate experts failed to predict.

In March, this newspaper further revealed that temperatures are about to drop below the level that the models forecast with ‘90 per cent certainty’.
The pause – which has now been accepted as real by every major climate research centre – is important, because the models’ predictions of ever-increasing global temperatures have made many of the world’s economies divert billions of pounds into ‘green’ measures to counter climate change.

Those predictions now appear gravely flawed.

“Gravely flawed”? Boy, there’s an understatement. If you need a picture, this might help:

Oh, and speaking of predictions, don’t forget this one:

The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Uh, huh.

  • “expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading”   heh…..
     
    other examples of ‘dangerously misleading”
     
    “Michael, I’ve reviewed your equations for calculating the Hypotenuse, and I gave you an F because your answers are dangerously misleading.”
    “I’m afraid we were dangerously misleading when we removed the patient’s kidney, he was supposed to undergo a toenail removal procedure”
    “It was dangerously misleading to pour gasoline on that fire in our attempt to extinguish it”.
     
     

  • You don’t actually expect the narrative to change do you? I more than half expect Erb to appear and explain this away as us being anti science and stuff

    • Nah … he’ll wait till the IPCC report comes out, and claim it is the ultimate truth because of “scientific consensus”.  Then he’ll do the “anti-science” claim.  Note though this line in the post above: “The pause – which has now been accepted as real by every major climate research centre…”

      What “consensus?”

  • Alas, the true believers will never abandon the religion of AGW.

  • The models say there is no Artic Ice.  It is gone.  Stop denying the science!  What you’re seeing is solidified dihydrogenmonoxide.
     

  • GOOD GRIEF! I have had it with all you climate change deniers! Y’all can’t even spell “Scientific Conesensus”! So after listening to the experts (Al Gore & Scott Erb), I have decided to take “unilateral action”! I am going to go down to the Arkansas River and paint a hunters orange (red unavailable) line in the sand! Should this line be crossed by a “Catagory 6″ hurricane then I plan on attacking greenhouses in Pope, Yell, and Logan Counties forcing them to quit producing those gases! Y’all have been warned!

  • If this continues, it will be interesting to watch how those who pushed AGW react. How many will act like it never happened, and ignore how they were so wrong over the last two decades?

    • We’ve been here beforer.  Global cooling.  Same bad guys, same solutiona.  Just turn the charts upside down.

      • Watermelons.
        Scratch any “green” policy and it’s “red” underneath.  Many of the same people guiding the political side of the catastrophic AGW alarmist agenda were overtly socialist in years past, like Van Jones.
        The Ehrilich/Malthusean population bomb , peak oil, peak metals, peak water, etc. alarmists are overwhelmingly populated by socialist types.
        Thus, proposed political solutions to all of these environmental “catastrophes” typically include the same policy changes advocated by socialist ideologues.  This is not a coincidence.
        Create a panic, convince the people that big government is necessary to save them from disaster, accuse the skeptics of wanting people to die, cities to drown, the world to roast, make the predictions as dire as possible so resistance to political takeover is cast as equivalent to supporting the Holocaust, etc..

    • No, their valiant efforts were enough to turn the tide.   DESPITE you damn deniers!    Whatever country you were in that wasn’t helping, millions in OTHER countries were, and that was what made the difference.
       
      Yessirreeee bobcat tail!   They were right, and any inference they weren’t is just more denier talk.

    • In reality some might be pissed if they sank some of their hard earned buckaroos into the lie.    Some might take heed to what happened, some might learn.
      We should ask the people who convinced themselves that the Mayapocalypse was going to wipe us out, see how they’re feeling here 9 months into the ‘end of the world’.   Has to be sort of the same, just not as exact about the date.
       
      Most of them though, won’t notice, because chances are they invested YOUR money and MY money (and indirectly some of their own of course) in their plan to save us all and well, spilt milk and all that wot not old bean.
       
      And when the next crises that needs your money appears, they’ll flock to it.

      • A bit of a difference between the mayan thing and an effort at convincing us to believe in AGW.

        • Natural Warming? Why not?  human warming…eh not so much.
           
          Results of Mayan end of the world – floods, fires, famines, etc, etc, etc, standard end of the world
          Results of AGW, floods, fires, famines, war in Syria, Snowman Extinction, my AC bill goes up 400,000% (in other words, standard end of the world).
           
          From where I see it, yes, I agree, some difference, but not a bunch if you listen to the warmers.

      • Mayapocalypse?  No, I’d say Y2K instead.

  • And that 97% of scientists that Obama tweeted a few weeks ago? Well, that paper was rejected and some collusion during its prep might be ClimateGate III. (Andrew Montford: Consensus? What Consensus? (PDF))

  • I’ve been told that “Anyone who eats tomatoes is going to die“.
    Since I can’t disproved this statement (or disprove that anyone is going to die, eventually, no matter), I continue to eat tomatoes.
    I guess this makes me a “denier” of sorts.

    • My theory postulates that anyone who does NOT eat them is going to die.
       
      I need your money to fix this.

      • Those who warn others that they will die, will die.
        “Nobody gets out of this place alive.”

        • Right, but I still need your money, now, while I’m alive, so…..uh…… I can fix this.
           
          Vote for me.  Give me power.  It will make all the eventual deaths have meaning and future generations of people we’re busy aborting will thank you.
