Thank you, Obama.

The oceans have stopped rising, and the world has stopped warming.

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent. 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.

The scienciness may be settled, but Nature doesn’t seem too all-fired impressed.

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.

Cooling is prob’ly far worse for humanity than warming would be.

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.

Models are not Nature.
We all know GIGI (garbage in, garbage out), but the main problem is that the algorithms (not Al Gore rhythms) are based on flawed un-science (over-emphasis on man-made CO2 effects, to over-simplify).

[T]he 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.

For “climate change” read “man-made global warming due to use of fossil fuels.”
You know, BS.
This is actually one of the reasons that Labor lost in Australia — the carbon tax.

Those predictions now appear gravely flawed. [story]

“Gravely flawed.” *heh* Delicious British understatement.

(What? Yeah, sure, this is The Mail tweaking the BBC, but it’s still important. The Telegraph, on the other hand, ignores the BBC and goes after the IPCC.)

    So, does this mean we can start rounding them up and marooning them on the Arctic ice pack?

    We can’t be too mean. We’ll give them plenty of sharp knives, fuel, pots and pans and boxes of seasoning.

    So powerful is the Great Obama that he retroactively stopped Global Warming a decade before he took office.

    I wonder….would 100,000 sets of parents across America have standing for a class action lawsuit against Al Gore for the average of $500 each of them spent over the past two years on posters and signs and special projects their kids had to do to “fit in” with the Global Warming push?

    I was just reading up on grass seeds on the web. Went to one site that stated that we folks who live in the transition climate (mid-Atlantic) had better move to more warm season grasses because the climate was warming.
    So do those assholes really think the grass knows 0.2 degree Celsius over ten years is the gamebreaker, if it’s real? Or are they the cheap whores I think they are?
    Needless to say, I left them a ‘bullshit’ note.

    AlGore is wrong, George Carlin was right: “The planet is fine. We’re f*cked, but the planet is fine.”

    Uh, no

    Stick, I just bought a 2000 F-150 XLT Supercab, with only 33,510 miles on it.

    Barring misfortune, I intend to keep contributing to glow ball worming for the next 200k miles or thereabouts!

  15. Posted September 9, 2013 at 12:56 am |

    This merely provides cover for the “Climate Change” meme. And since the climate has been changing continuously since the planet was invented, we’re hosed. All that the ‘progressive’ illiberal control freaks have to add is the “anthropogenic” prefix. They don’t even have to prove it (which is good for them, because they can’t – it’s non-falisifiable). That’s why the falsifiability principle (scientific method) has been replaced with the precautionary principle.

    I laugh even more now when I reread this:

    Famous weather scientist, Dr. Algore , formerly associated with A.S.S.H.O.L.E. (Algores Scatological Scientific Hagiographic Of Ludicrous Environmentalism) until it’s disbandment, and who was the creator of C.A.T.S.H.I.T. (Cap And Trade Scientific Hagiography & International Treatise) later found himself linked to the famous group, D.O.G.T.U.R.D. (Dumpers Of Global Temperature Unit’s Research Data),headquartered in East Anglia. That was one of a series of astounding efforts to preserve and increase tax payer supported financial backing and grants to the huge group of pseudo scientists, hell bent on redistributing the resources of the developed world and driving those countries into poverty. This of course while enriching their own bank accounts…………..We wish Dr. Algore continued failure and hope that he and all the cru crew (cru-climate research unit) will be able to get the accommodations they so richly deserve, at the Mookatorium in Arbuckle, Virginia.

    The good news is that we all know how to avoid global freezing. Just burn a bunch of those black rocks to stay warm and the extra CO2 will warm the whole Earth.

    Fuck all this dialogue about global warming becoming global cooling!

    We got a much more serious problem here on The Porch!
    WHAT, you say?

    Allow me to reprint the problem for you speed readers, m-kay…

    (…I was just reading up on grass seeds on the web. ) Comment by Dick, not quite dead guy.

    Think about that KisPer cadets/cadettes, “Reading about fucking grass seeds?????” Clearly we gotta intervene with one of our own, who is down to reading crap like that! JFC, surely we can provide Dick with something more interesting to read!

    Yeah, if things are actually gonna grow in my yard (which is totally covered with long-leaf pine straw and the odd weed), that could be a problem.
    I mean, like, you know … would palm trees clash with my hibiscuses?

    However, being an environmentally responsible and trend-sensitive kind’a guy (*snick*), and having anticipated the whining from the one tree-hugger in the shooting club, I have been compensating for the anticipated warming trend.
    Yep, moved the hummingbird feeder north a few inches.

    Hey ColJ, I’m fine in the mind at the moment. I was just fed up with the local plant emporium’s seed, which for the past three years has been full of a weed called poa trivialis, which grows four times as fast as the rest of the grass, is lime green, crowds out the desireable grass, and then dies off in June leaving great gaping brown patches in the lawn. I’ve had enough of that crap and was looking for another source of clean seed.
    Trust me, I’m not dreaming Latin botanical names or anything scary like that, and no intervention is needed.
    Thanks for the kind thought though.
    Now, back to building my heart pine coffee table. That’s how I’m passing time at the moment; that and reading John Marshall’s “Life of Washington”.

    The greenies keep on redefining the terms and moving the goalposts so they can still be right.

    BTW, it seems the whole solution to all this nature stuff doing it’s thing is more government intervention and higher taxes. It’s almost as if more control and taxation is the goal, they just need to come up with more reasons why.

    BTW BTW, I read an article the other day where our traitor-in-chief was calling for regulation of water vapor. I had to read it twice to figure out whether it was a parody or not.

    That’s Middle English for “We wuz robbed,” right?”

    It’s upper-class English for the more common “it’s a dog’s breakfast”.

    We’re all just waiting for AlGore, in a heavy parka, in front of an igloo, in a snowstorm, expounding on the dangers of global warming.
