Happy Anniversary – 18 years of ‘no global warming’

No AGW?

No AGW?

The greatest moral challenge of our time?

According to the datasets used last year, October 1st will mark the 18th year of “no significant warming trend in surface average temperature,” says Patrick Michaels, director of the Cato Institute’s Center for the Study of Science.

And even if the current 18-year trend were to end, it would still take nearly 25 years for average global temperature figures to reflect the change, said Michaels, who has a Ph.D. in ecological climatology and spent three decades as a research professor of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia.

All the heat’s just hiding in the oceans, deep down, where nobody can find it.

And in other news, poverty, starvation, Ebola, Islamic State, beheadings, genocide, murders, bombings etc, etc…

    Good to see you haven’t given up posting on this. Having just finished the ‘The Real Global Warming Disaster’ by Christopher Booker I am convinced more than ever that this hoax should not be ignored.

  2. Welcome back Simon on this issue. It’s too important to let slip. I just sent this same bulletin to the ABC and a bunch of pollies with a long list of Bcc recipients. Hey!. 18 years old! it can now vote!. Keep up the good work

    The greatest scientific stuffup of our time. And the greatest international scam. Ultimately the greatest joke as well, but also the most expensive.

  4. “All the heat’s just hiding in the oceans, deep down, where nobody can find it.”

    While we wait for oceans to turn acidic (utter crap) I truly think that is why half of the alarmists believe the above! I say apart from recovering from “hypothermia” & enrolling in a course in Thermodymanics 101 there is no hope for them! Climate Change is real, no question been happening for millions of years BUT Anthropogenic Global Warming has been slowly dropped from alarmists rhetoric everything is now Catastrophic Climate Change!
    Some advice for them stop adjusting data & moving thermometers, declare your models have “catastrophically” failed & stop blaming every extreme weather event as being caused by Anthropogenic Global Warming when actually cold events are more likely to be associated with extreme weather! Finally, to politicians who have no clue on the science whatsoever stop rhetorical worn out & false statements.

    A curious irony is that some people who are 18 years old devote themselves to a ’cause’ that hasn’t actually occurred within their lifetime.

    Wouldn’t be the first time, although what makes this one more than a little annoying is that it is supposedly being driven by ‘science’.

    It is curious why science has failed here, but it isn’t the first time ‘science’ has been widely misused for a cause though, either. Social Darwinism and eugenics comes to mind.

    A good read of where science is misused for a cause is ‘The Mismeasure of Man’ by SJ Gould, which describes 19th-early 20th century eugenics.

  6. “Application of the method shows that there is now a trendless interval of 19 years duration at the end of the HadCRUT4 surface temperature series, and of 16 – 26 years in the lower troposphere.”
    HAC-robust measurement of the duration of a trendless subsample in a global climate time series. McKitrick RR. Open Journal of Statistics, 2014, 4, 527-535.

    And the inconvenient truth that eclipses all, in particular the multi-billion dollar climate model industry, the impoverishing Progressive enviro-apparatchiks and their opportunistic financiers, the totalitarian collective of those bureaucracies most notably of the UN, lining up their shackling edicts and taxations, all of these humanity wrecking conglomerations were incontestably and irrefutably blindsided – completely – by the natural ‘pause’.

    Wouldn’t it just be sublime were the Progressive existential navel gazing to cease now?

    I know, I know. I’m not holding my breath either.

  7. Well, I guess that that’s ok, but you may think also that this trend change may come quick, as seem to have been the case back several decades ago when an observer at Kew Ob noted in 1943 (details from http://climate-ocean.com/a2005/02_16-Dateien/02_16.html )
    __ “The present century has been marked by such a wide-spread tendency towards mild winters that the “old–fashioned winters”, of which one has heard so much, seemed to have disappeared forever. The sudden arrival at the end of 1939 of what was considered to be the beginning of a series of cold winters was therefore all the more surprising. Since the winters of 1878-79, 1879-80 and 1880-81, there have never been such severe winters, three in succession, as those of 1939-40, 1940-41 and 1941-42.” A. J. Drummond
    Could this matter have anything to do with the Second World War? How know an answer?
