Global Quackery: Earth Has Not Warmed For Past 19 Years, New Study Finds
We are bombarded with "facts" every day: This is the "hottest [pick a season] ever"; the ice caps are at a record low; we'll all be dead in 10 years.
For former president Barack Obama, the ever-changing and often contradictory "facts" about global warming (which liberals now call climate change because the globe stopped warming) was simply "settled science."
But now it turns out the Arctic sea ice is thicker than ever and, oh yeah, the global temperature trend has not warmed for 19 years. That's right -- 19 years!
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK has published a fascinating article detailing data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
Ever since December temperatures in the Arctic have consistently been lower than minus 20 C. In April the extent of Arctic sea ice was back to where it was in April 13 years ago. Furthermore, whereas in 2008 most of the ice was extremely thin, this year most has been at least two metres thick. The Greenland ice cap last winter increased in volume faster than at any time for years.
