Signs of sanity on climate change

Posted by sanityinjection on October 13, 2009

Dribs and drabs of good news have been cropping up on the climate change front, beginning with Australia’s rejection of cap-and-trade, and the back-burnering of similar legislation here int he US in favor of the health care bill.

Now even one of the leading drum-beaters on global warming, the BBC, is acknowledging that there is an actual debate within the scientific community on the subject. While that seems obvious to us, it represents a significant concession from their previous attitude that only crackpots and oil industry shills could be unbelievers.

The article, titled “What happened to global warming?’, states flatly that “For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures. And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.”

Of course, they are not ready to capitulate altogether. The article presents conflicting opinions from scientists, some who say that we are due for a cooling period of 10-30 years and some who say global warming will resume next year. It concludes that “It seems the debate about what is causing global warming is far from over.” In short, it’s the kind of reasonable, balanced and fair article the BBC should have been presenting on the topic all along.

Jumping on the bandwagon, the London Times decided to finally talk to climate scientists who are ticked off about all the gross distortions of their findings by the global warming hysteria industry. Keep in mind, these are scientists who do believe in global warming, but are simply against lying to the public in order to frighten them into doing “the right thing”:

    Of course, the Times and other publications knew about all this years ago. Why didn’t they report it at the time?
