Cycle 25!

You probably thought, “Oh, it’s a Portland blog. This is gonna be about the latest trend in Saving The Planet™ by bicycle.” Wrong.

It’s actually about the latest trend in Anthropogenic Global Warming – which, oddly, doesn’t seem to be happening, so forget about booking that tropical vacation in Wales for now. As it happens, the Science isn’t quite settled, for some reason. Inconveniently for AlGore and other leaders of the Religion, it appears that the planet hasn’t been warming for 15 years.

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.

1684Thames agwOddly, scientists seem to have concluded that the sun may play some role in regard to planetary climate. Indeed, many now warn that 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.

Although some claim that human-released carbon dioxide will prevent significant cooling, others dispute that view; noting that these individuals are relying upon the same computer models which thus far have proven erroneous. They argue that it’s entirely possible that the River Thames will freeze again, as shown above.

‘World temperatures may end up a lot cooler than now for 50 years or more,’ said Henrik Svensmark, director of the Center for Sun-Climate Research at Denmark’s National Space Institute. ‘It will take a long battle to convince some climate scientists that the sun is important. It may well be that the sun is going to demonstrate this on its own, without the need for their help.’

In the next few years, it’s entirely possible that a whole lot of “scientists” leading the AGW parade are going to find grant funding hard to come by. They may have to kiss their careers goodbye, but the EPA and other agencies are certain to find a new angle to enhance their control, which will undobtedly prove fruitful grounds for the next set of grant-dependent “scientists” to explore.
