Where’d all the global warming news go?
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, September 18, 2008

With the economy melting down faster than arctic sea ice, not much about "climate change" has been able to beat its way to the top of the news cycle.

Speaking of sea ice, I'm sure you remember the stories earlier in the year saying the arctic sea ice was melting faster than in anytime in history:
We have news from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). They say: The melt is over. And we’ve added 9.4% ice coverage from this time last year. Though it appears NSIDC is attempting to downplay this in their web page announcement today, one can safely say that despite irrational predictions seen earlier this year, we didn’t reach an “ice free north pole” nor a new record low for sea ice extent.
Meanwhile more and more evidence seems to be pointing to that big hot yellow thing that hangs in the sky each day as the primary driver of "climate change":
Warming and cooling cycles are more directly tied in with astronomical influences than they are with human-caused carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, some scientists now say.

Recent observations point to a strong link between “solar variability” – or fluctuations in the sun’s radiation – and climate change on Earth, while other research sees the sun as just one of many heavenly bodies affecting global warming in the later half of the 20th century.

Contrary to what has been stated in a “Summary for Policymakers” attached to the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report — and in subsequent press coverage of the report — there is scant evidence in favor of human-caused global warming, according to geologists, astrophysicists, and climatologists who have released updated studies.
In fact, Allan MacRae is wondering if we're not already in the beginning of global cooling:
Since just January 2007, the world has cooled so much that ALL the global warming over the past three decades has disappeared! This is confirmed by a plot of actual global average temperatures from the best available source, weather satellite data that shows there has been NO net global warming since the satellites were first launched in 1979.
Cap and trade, anyone?

I don’t understand why the media isn’t all over this. It means Obama was right when he said:
"This was the moment when the rise of the ocean began to slow and our planet began to heal"
Well, plus or minus a few months anyway. And since the whole thing seems driven by the sun, it didn’t have anything to do with his election, so he got that part wrong. But still, what a visionary!

If only his magnificent vision had extended to supporting the efforts in 2005 to do something about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Or supporting the surge. Or choosing a better VP candidate. Or finding another church as soon as he discovered he had a race-baiting pastor.

Well, I’ll point out that AGW hype isn’t the only thing that the Democrats were pushing that’s now getting buried by the press. Notice we’ve not heard much about William Jefferson of late? Notice we’ve not head mush about the nearly continuous scandals asurrounding Charlie Rangel... another new one just today?

Amazing, how these things just up and disappear.

Remember that NIE ...
VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog showed documents and photographs on Tuesday suggesting Iran secretly tried to modify a missile cone to fit a nuclear bomb, diplomats said, and Tehran again dismissed the findings as forged.

Bit, there are more important things to cover, such as whether Palin is actually the mother of her own child.

Besides, natural processes, such as La Nina, are simply masking the effects of AGW. After that subsides, then, everyone will die. Geez.

Might it be said that ICE IS FORMING AT AN INCREASING RATE! and OMG! ICE FORMATION
IS FASTER THAN ANYTIME IN THE RECENT PAST!

Clearly its time for a new ice age.

Our only recourse is to drive our SUV’s but, OMG! the evil Bush has driven up oil prices so that we can’t produce enough carbon! We are DOOOOOMED!

No, Kyle - the only thing that can save us is to reduce our CO2 emissions, because it’s a proven fact that CO2 in the atmosphere will reflect the sunlight we so desperately need to keep back the glaciers!
We need to invest in carbon sequestering technologies NOW and reduce our carbon footprint as quickly as possible.

Here’s the problem:

"Glowbull worming" is so ingrained in our collective psyche that it doesn’t really NEED to be discussed anymore. Do we discuss the "truth" that the world is round or that the earth goes around the sun? No. So, why waste time discussing what everybody "knows"? Because it’s been proven. By scientific consensus. And a movie. So just shut up and believe. And, anyway, don’t you want clean air and water?

If temperatures don’t go up and we don’t all fry, it will be because the gifted prophet Algore warned everybody in time and stopped the catastrophe that WOULD HAVE BEEN caused by global warming. Because he spoke up and got enough brave, brave, intelligent people to drive Priuses (Prii?) and use CFL’s in their houses, the calamity was narrowly avoided and Mother Gaia was saved! It’s like the rooster taking credit for the sun coming up because he crows in the morning. Unfortunately, there are any number of dimwits who will buy into it.

Another Peace Prize for Algore, Savior of the Planet!
