What Happened to Global Warming?

“‘What happened to global warming?’ read the headline — on BBC News on Oct. 9, no less. Consider it a cataclysmic event: Mainstream news organizations have begun reporting on scientific research that suggests that global warming may not be caused by man and may not be as dire and eminent as alarmists suggest. Indeed, as the BBC’s climate correspondent Paul Hudson reported, the warmest year recorded globally ‘was not in 2008 or 2007, but 1998.’ It’s true, he continued, ‘For the last 11 years, we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.’ … Western Washington University geologist Don J. Easterbrook presented research last year that suggests that the Pacific decadal oscillation (PDO) caused warmer temperatures in the 1980s and 1990s. With Pacific sea surface temperatures cooling, Easterbrook expects 30 years of global cooling. EPA analyst Alan Carlin — an MIT-trained economist with a degree in physics — referred to ‘solar variability’ and Easterbrook’s work in a document that warned that politics had prompted the EPA and other countries to pay ‘too little attention to the science of global warming’ as partisans ignored the lack of global warming over the last 10 years. At first, the EPA buried the paper, then it permitted Carlin to post it on his personal Web site. … Over the years, global warming alarmists have sought to stifle debate by arguing that there was no debate. They bullied dissenters and ex-communicated non-believers from their panels. … For a long time, that approach worked. But after 11 years without record temperatures that had the seas spilling over the Statue of Liberty’s toes, they are going to have to change tactics. They’re going to have to rely on real data, not failed models, scare stories and the Big Lie that everyone who counts agrees with them.” –columnist Debra Saunders
