Global Warming (?)... Update

Not on prime-time news....  Global Warming (?)... Update

* Forget global warming - it's Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again)  Met Office releases new figures which show no warming in 15 years

* No Need to Panic About Global Warming. There's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy.

And if this smaller set of 16 climate scientists isn't sufficient for you, then recall these much larger lists of CO2 critics:

* Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change: "Global warming is not a global crisis", International Climate Science Coalition, 4 March 2008. (712 climate-environment scientists)

* U. S. Senate Minority Report: "More Than 700 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims Scientists Continue to Debunk 'Consensus' in 2008 & 2009", United States Congress, Washington, DC, 11 Dec. 2008.

* SPECIAL REPORT: More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims - Challenge UN IPCC & Gore.  Climate Depot Exclusive: 321-page 'Consensus Buster' Report.

* Open Letter to President Obama on Climate Change: "With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true", Cato Institute, 19 Nov. 2008.

The Mail, surprise surprise, mis-characterizes the referenced material, so much so, the Met responds:

“However, what is absolutely clear is that we have continued to see a trend of warming, with the decade of 2000-2009 being clearly the warmest in the instrumental record going back to 1850."
jimspice you've missed the point. That Met-office rebuttal you linked to was not scientifically constructed. Here' is my reply to them, which they may or many not allow to remain on their site:

"Sir, your own graphic shows merely the temperature trends of the earth as it comes out of the Little Ice Age. Of course it warms during that general trend. But it has not warmed continuously, and the CO2 which is claimed to be driving the warming may well be the product of the warming, as is well known that the oceans are the largest CO2 reservoir on the planet, and as the waters warm, they discharge accumulated CO2 from hundreds of years back. Posting up the usual “hockey stick” graphic is no longer scientifically defendible, especially since the findings about the data massaging which the Mann, et al, team undertook to produce it. Heads should have rolled after the “climategate” memos, showing unethical plotting and scheming by various high-ups in the Royal Court of CO2 fundamentalism. That they did not makes it difficult to accept anything claimed by government-fed bureaucracies, as it is a situation reflecting exactly what the atomic power industry did over decades — lied and lied to get their big money and a free hand, over the objections of scientists who knew the dangers. Climate science, like environmental science, is today colored and suspect for its malfeasance in these matters, if not for a rather transparent embrace of Marxist agendas in the “solutions” for a problem that can hardly be affected, if indeed it is driven by the Sun. Now, that is the basic message of the Daily Mail article, and your disclaimer is hardly sufficient."
