Met Office: Global Warming Ended 15 Years Ago

Two of the scientific organizations that just a couple of years ago blamed humans for the planet’s warming, the Met Office and the University of East Anglia, now provide contrasting data showing that planetary warming ended in 1997.

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.

Meanwhile, leading climate scientists yesterday told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food.

Solar output goes through 11-year cycles, with high numbers of sunspots seen at their peak.

We are now at what should be the peak of what scientists call ‘Cycle 24’ – which is why last week’s solar storm resulted in sightings of the aurora borealis further south than usual. But sunspot numbers are running at less than half those seen during cycle peaks in the 20th Century.

Analysis by experts at NASA and the University of Arizona – derived from magnetic-field measurements 120,000 miles beneath the sun’s surface – suggest that Cycle 25, whose peak is due in 2022, will be a great deal weaker still.

According to a paper issued last week by the Met Office, there is a  92 per cent chance that both Cycle 25 and those taking place in the following decades will be as weak as, or weaker than, the ‘Dalton minimum’ of 1790 to 1830. In this period, named after the meteorologist John Dalton, average temperatures in parts of Europe fell by 2C.

However, it is also possible that the new solar energy slump could be as deep as the ‘Maunder minimum’ (after astronomer Edward Maunder), between 1645 and 1715 in the coldest part of the ‘Little Ice Age’ when, as well as the Thames frost fairs, the canals of Holland froze solid.

How the Green Movement Failed Us

Eyad Jamaleddine

The word epic comes to mind when describing the perpetuation of lies bestowed on the commoner. Watching the daily news, or

Time Magazine anti-human propaganda

flipping through to the Discovery Channel, it is hard not to notice the never-ending loads of propaganda that are dumped on the viewers. The local television station parrots the talking points of national stations: “The Earth is dying, we must act today, reduce green house gas emissions, establish one child policies and create taxation grids to save our mother Earth.” At a first glimpse one might accept the premise, being that Carbon Dioxide, Methane and other gases emitted by anthropogenic activities are the causes of global warming. However, when one evaluates the authors of the suppositions and their amassed data, it is hard to overlook the flagrant statistical manipulations.

The famous hockey stick graph produced by Mann was a highly influential piece in the public debate. It suggested that, in the shape of a hockey stick, world temperatures were rising dramatically through the industrial and post-industrial era. However, in the past few years, many have questioned the integrity of Mann’s findings. Not only is there lack of statisticians in the American Meteorological Association, which published Mann’s findings, but the paucity and integrity of the data is also a key factor that must be investigated.

Taking into consideration that the initial graph was used by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) as a lobbying tool to convince the skeptics of Global Warming, it becomes disturbing to see that the replacement of the graph with the newly update one has still not occurred.

Furthermore, contributors to the IPCC report, such as Kevin Trenberth was quoted saying that “global warming is likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity”. Media outlets ran with cover pages fear mongering that global warming would cause an explosion in tropical storms and diverse climate catastrophes that would kill millions, based on the previous quote. What they failed to mention was that the hurricane and tropical cyclone expert Christopher Landsea who was hired by the UN second and third international Panel on Climate Change, to evaluate the link between the changes in tropical cyclones around the world and climate change (global warming), never could establish a link between global warming and an increase in hurricanes or tropical storms!

Although Landsea published his findings, the IPCC ignored his results and in the report, one can find predictions of grave natural catastrophes due to global warming.

Another mass-produced and pushed upon individuals of all ages, are the deafening pictures of ice-melts and ice retractions in the

The infamous Hockey Stick Graph

Arctic and Antarctic. Whether in a University or pre-school, the astute student can recall the PowerPoint presentations with the latter misleading pictures. From artists, building sculptures and placing them in the Antarctic during the melting season, to Al gore fairing a helicopter back and forth around the melting glaciers during the spring, the picture is always followed by the trademark phrase: “There you have it, the ice is melting, water is going to rise, humanity is going to die”.

What is not mentioned is the work of respected scientists, such as Dr. Wingham, Principal Scientist of the European Space Agency’s CryoSat Satellite Missions. As stated by the Canadian National post and other publications, Dr. Wingham has been collecting satellite data for years (without the Cryosat Sattelite), and arriving at startling conclusions. Early last year at a European Union Space Conference in Brussels, for example, Dr. Wingham revealed that data from a European Space Agency satellite showed Antarctic thinning was no more common than thickening, and concluded that the spectacular collapse of the ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula was much more likely to have followed natural current fluctuations than global warming. In fact, one can go further and state that since 1992 and 2003, a whopping 72% of the ice sheet covering the entire land mass of the Antarctic region is growing at a rate of 5 mm (about 0.2 inch) a year!

The corrected version of the graph

If the latter facts were not enough to discourage the misled green movement or the yuppie followers, than the key would be to go outside and look up, at around noon, on a sunny day. The fixture that is producing heat and causing you to sweat and squint is about 1.496×108 kilometers (~92 957 130 miles) away and is the size of about 1 million, that’s 1 000 000 Earths. The shear size and dumfounding energy of the latter has immense effects on temperature fluctuations. It has been noted that the Sun’s magnetic field has more than doubled in strength in the 20th Century, causing a rise in temperatures. It is also fact the solar activity has been reducing lately, probably causing the drop in temperatures reported worldwide, since 2001. That said, Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the Pulkovo space research laboratory has stated that Mars had also been noticing higher temperatures and that ice was melting at lower altitude levels. Further cementing theories relating the Sun activities to Global temperature changes.

Even the staunchest of global warming advocates must agree with leading Meteorologist Hendrik Tennekes, when he stated that forecasting the weather for longer periods then three days is virtually impossible, even with the present computing capabilities. The latter is obvious when one is preparing an outing and happens to depend on meteorological predictions.

With all the latter, maybe green movements around the world should concentrate on true environmental hazard, such as water contamination with various hormones, namely estrogen, GMO crops and the dangers associated with genetically modified organism, the emerging world of Nanotechnogies and the toxicity of latter. Wouldn’t it be nice if the green movement woke up to the hazards of water fluoridation and the effects of the use of Depleted Uranium rounds in the Middle East, causing catastrophic environmental destruction through irradiation? How credible would the green movement be if world depopulation was removed from the agenda? If crippling economic sanctions were not green policies for the third world nations and the millions that die from malnutrition would be allowed access to sanitation? If fascist ideologies of control and domination were not the mono of the globalist green parties, wouldn’t everybody join? Isn’t the contamination of local Canadian and North USA waters with heavy metals a higher priority than counting carbon credits, when global warming is based on biased data and misleading assumptions?

The real question is: who stands to gain? Who is funding this neo-fascist expropriation of wealth and land? The answer is Goldman Sachs, George Soros, Al Gore and many other globalist minions…The same people that brought you the Iraq war and the Patriot Act, the friendly folks behind the scenes trying to shut down the web.

Who is to gain? Definitely not the average individual, with crippling taxation rates, three lost jobs for every “green job” created, taxation by the mile for automotive users, home inspections…

Attention should be turned to the criminals that are robbing the middle class and re-appropriating our wealth for personnel gains. Shame on you Mr. Gore, your carbon footprint is probably higher than all the readers of this article combined. A lavish life, with a couple of mansions and a dozen cars, shouldn’t you be practicing what you preach?
