no global warming 16 years

Real world observations show a cooler world than climate computer models predict with the U.K.’s Met Office HadCrut data showing 16 years without any warming.  The Met Office is keeper to one of the main data sets the UN’s IPCC relies on to issue its increasingly dire assessment reports .

Remember that all of the warming measured so far does not exceed three quarters of one degree Celsius and that those measurements may be high when we consider temperature station siting problems and other bias.  This science is anything but settled.  How much of this three quarters of a degree of warming is genuine and how much is attributable to man, nature or the sun is highly debatable.

Washington, D.C. is the workplace of the President, 435 members of the House of Representatives, 100 Senators and more bureaucrats and lobbyists than we care to think about.  Washington is also the home of over 175 embassies and diplomatic establishments.  America’s capitol is the perfect place for a reminder that those attributing extreme weather and other current conditions to warming are talking nothing but hype.  Hype at the highest levels.

If you can’t count on the media to report, place the facts where they must be seen.

Fight propaganda with facts!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

CFACT billboard proclaims 16 years without warming:

Challenges Obama and Gore

(Washington, D.C.) CFACT unveiled its latest billboard campaign this week in its ongoing effort to educate the public about the global warming scare. The ad displays global temperature data from the U.K.’s Met Office which shows global warming to have plateaued in 1997 and remained stable for 16 years.

The campaign is targeted to the Washington, D.C. metro area and is placed to be viewed by commuters headed into D.C. from Virginia.

President Obama didn’t make a peep about global warming throughout his campaign, but resurrected it minutes after declaring victory,” said CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker. “Now, both Obama and Gore are attributing extreme weather events such as Hurricane Sandy to warming. By doing so they have ceded the scientific high ground to their critics and followed this issue down the slippery slope to pure propaganda.”

Global temperature data from both the Met Office and NOAA limit any global warming to three quarters of a degree Celsius, altogether. How much of that is attributable to man versus nature is highly debatable. In addition, there has been no significant warming for well over a decade and a half. Last week even Rachendra Pachauri, head of the UN’s IPCC, acknowledged that there has been no warming for what he said was seventeen years during a speech in Melbourne, Australia. Pachauri expressed his faith that warming would return, but CFACT remains skeptical.

“Weather is ever changing and often volatile,” Rucker said, “but the climate models that the UN has relied on to justify huge wastes of funds and devastating damage to a struggling world economy, don’t hold up when judged against real world observation. We can’t count on the establishment media to report fairly or comprehensively about global warming, so we placed this important information, that there has been no warming for 16 years, 80 feet wide and high in the sky where Washington politicians can’t miss it. It will give them something constructive to think about as they drink their coffee during their morning commute.”

CFACT, the Committee For a Constructive Tomorrow, is a U.S.-based NGO that addresses issues of environment and development around the globe. CFACT produces the widely read Climatedepot.com news and information service.
