If you listened to and believed the hype of the MSM and paid-for “climate scientists,” 2012 was the proof everyone has been waiting for to
convince the rest of us that “man-made climate change” was not only real, but was killing us at ever-increasing rates.
Unfortunately for the AGW faithful, and those who profit from blind acceptance, the facts and science of late 2012 and early 2013 have revealed the
AGW hoax for what it is: a global “fund-raising” effort for those whose professional and political careers depend upon an ill- or un-informed
public to react to stories of catastrophe (with no basis in fact) and keep the spigots flowing with pother people’s money:
The IPCC AR5 SOD leak;
The UK MET’s revelation of a cooling trend, and media battle in attempts to cover it up; and,
Jim Hansen’s admission that no warming has occurred for 2 decades despite ever-increasing CO2 levels.
When the draft report of the IPCC working group first came to light, the MSM yawned and the IPCC decried the revelation as not within the bounds of
the type of “transparency” they define for “climate science.”
Well when you consider that some of the findings revealed a significant role for solar and cosmic rays on climate, and that this is the OPPOSITE of
the lies the IPCC has told for 20 years, it can make a difference.
In December, a draft of the IPCC’s fifth assessment, due for final publication in September 2013, was leaked to the press by climate sceptic
The IPCC confirmed the draft was genuine while lamenting the leak. The media furor that followed, however, focused on a section of the report that
suggests what some key climate scientists, including Dr Henrik Svensmark in the excellent The Chilling Stars, have said all along: that the influence
of cosmic rays (the Sun) could have a greater warming influence than mankind’s emissions.
As the IPCC’s “Expert Reviewer” noted,

Rawls describes the relevant section as “an astounding bit of honesty, a killing admission that completely undercuts the main premise and main
conclusion of the full report, revealing the dishonesty of the
As part of the science and measurement underlying the IPCC’s reports, upon which the US, and many major economies base significant parts of their
policies and economies, the UK MET data sets are fundamental to their findings.
Yet, when the MET released a revision on Christmas Eve to their temperature projections showing a DECREASE over the coming years, not only was it
ignored by the MSM, but they assisted the MET in trying to cover it up.
Just last year, the UK Met Office Hadley Center confidently predicted the average global temperature must rise incrementally by around 0.2oC
decade by decade driven by CO2 rises.
Then on Christmas Eve, something curious happened. The UK Met Office posted a note on its website announcing it was downgrading its
The BBC’s pro-alarmist David Shukman interpreted the downgrade as meaning “there won’t have been much global warming for the past 20 years”.
Thankfully, a few of the formerly-gullible press outlets tired of the game and began calling the fraud for what it was; a money-grubbing hoax on
science and the world.
But other parts of the UK media have clearly had enough. The Daily Mail pulled no punches citing the Met Office’s clumsy attempt to cover up
the scale of its gross error as “a crime against science and the public.” The Sunday Telegraph editorial described it as a “betrayal of proper
science”. And David Rose of the Mail on Sunday, in the wake of various attempts to exonerate this latest screw up, wanted to know “Who are the
deniers now?” Labour MP Graham Stringer further noted how the field of UK energy and environmental policy was “dominated by individuals with
commercial interests in renewables”, singling out Tim Yeo, chairman of the relevant Select Committee as “a director of several renewable
Finally, after all of this, NASA’s Jim Hansen reviews that available data and, while still trying to ring alarm bells for his own favorite agenda,
ADMITS that there has been no significant warming for the last 10 years.
In a paper published Tuesday, no less an authority than NASA scientist James E. Hansen wrote, “The 5-year mean global temperature has been flat
for a decade, which we interpret as a combination of natural variability and a slowdown in the growth rate of the net climate forcing.”
The GWPF has been right all along. In a new report Hansen, Sato and Ruedy (2013) acknowledge the existence of a standstill in global temperature
lasting a decade.
This is a welcome contribution to the study of global temperature. When others reached the same conclusion they have been ridiculed; so this admission
should provide some pause for reflection by those who have attacked the very idea of a recent temperature standstill, often without understanding the
data, focusing on who was making the argument and their alleged non-scientific motives.
The bottom line is that the recent global temperature standstill is a real event. It is explained in a hand-waving way as due to natural climatic
variations masking the long-term trend, even if we do not understand those natural variations. Some believe the standstill might be pointing the way
to a deeper revision of our understanding of climate. One thing is clear the stuff you heard until very recently about mankind’s signal of warming
being the strongest (and getting stronger) is wrong. The standstill has already taught us that.
Given that, and the fact that the usual climate “models” have been affirmatively established to be worthless, why do we still let politicians and
grant-hungry AGW advocates continue to bleed us dry to serve their false agendas?

When will we make these charlatans get back to basic tenets of science; reproducible results, “models” that work, and objective analysis, before
we give them any more money, time or influence over our lives?
