Beginning of the end for “global warming”?

Posted by sanityinjection on October 20, 2008

Our neighbor to the north, Lorne Gunter, suggests in Canada’s National Post that the global warming skeptics are finally beginning to attain a critical mass. More and more evidence points to solar activity (or lack thereof) as the primary regulator of global temperatures – not man-made carbon emissions. He cites a recent study as indicating that any gains in global temperatures over the last thirty years have disappeared over the last four:

I would encourage readers to observe the amount of time it takes for the political orthodoxy to go from “Global warming is an absolute scientific fact and it will kill us all unless we eliminate our carbon emissions” to “It doesn’t matter if global warming is real or not, we must still eliminate our carbon emissions to reduce pollution and our dependence on foreign energy.” And should we have the temerity to notice the change, we will be assured that Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
