Several IPCC scientists have hinted that there has really been no significant global warming since 1998. It has been easy to document not only a lack of warming within the United States but a significant cooling trend for the past thirteen years. We now have “good” HadCRUT data confirming what many of us have suspected: no significant global warming in recent years. In fact, the data clearly shows a slight cooling trend is underway. I put “good” in quotation marks because as many of us know, this data is manipulated and massaged by the people collecting the data. Despite this corruption, and the best efforts by certain climate scientists to show otherwise, there is no denying what the graph demonstrates. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that this cooling trend will continue for decades to come, erasing all of the supposed warming of the previous century (and then some). I base my assessment mainly on upcoming oceanic oscillations and (more significantly) on some strange, rare, inactivity on the sun.
This recent cooling is in direct contradiction to every IPCC projection made in each of their assessment reports. We were supposed to be seeing nothing but an every increasing warming trend far off into the future. Carbon dioxide levels have continued to increase during this period but still, the cooling persists. Of course the lack of a correlation with CO2 comes as no surprise to me since CO2 absorption is logarithmic and all but maxed out a long long time ago. Even doubling today’s concentration, which nobody foresees even into the distant future, will probably have no significant effect on global temperatures.
