So the U.N. IPCC high priests of Global Warming are meeting this week. No doubt flying in to Stockholm, Sweden on private pollutant spewing jets.
Despite all data to the contrary, their final report on the scourge of manmade global warming, to be released on Sept. 30 will surely be chock-full of dire predictions of Armageddon unless America reverts to third world status.
Yet some have started to recognize the graffiti on the walls at the “Church of the Burning Planet”, as Larry Bell calls it, that temperatures have been flat to cooling for the past 17 years.
Mr. Bell wrote that of all publications, The New York Times reported on June 6: “The rise in the surface temperature of Earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.” Reporter Justin Gillis went on to admit that the break in temperature increases “highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system”, whereby the lack of warming “is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists.”
Maybe the New York Times is the harbinger of a global climate shift? Could this be the opening salvo to the eventual shift from the warming hysteria to cooling? They were the first to do a 180 from cooling to warming in 1981, when just 6 years earlier Newsweek had their infamous, “The Ice Age Cometh” cover story that scared the crap out of many. The NYT even published their own article in 1975 entitled “Major cooling may be ahead”.
