Look look ! A flying pig !

Who would have thought it ? A BBC NEWS headline "What happened to global warming ?"

From Paul Hudson, the BBC climate correspondent no less... This headline (above) may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might the fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998. But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures. And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise. So what on Earth is going on?
Climate change sceptics, who passionately and consistently argue that man's influence on our climate is overstated, say they saw it coming. They argue that there are natural cycles, over which we have no control, that dictate how warm the planet is. But what is the evidence for this? ...Piers Corbyn from Weatheraction, a company specialising in long range weather forecasting that solar charged particles impact us far more than is currently accepted, so much so he says that they are almost entirely responsible for what happens to global temperatures. He is so excited by what he has discovered that he plans to tell the international scientific community at a conference in London at the end of the month.
If proved correct, this could revolutionise the whole subject....
So what can we expect in the next few years?
Both sides (of the climate change debate) have very different forecasts. The Met Office says that warming is set to resume quickly and strongly. It predicts that from 2010 to 2015 at least half the years will be hotter than the current hottest year on record (1998). Sceptics disagree. They insist it is unlikely that temperatures will reach the dizzy heights of 1998 until 2030 at the earliest. It is possible, they say, that because of ocean and solar cycles a period of global cooling is more likely. One thing is for sure. It seems the debate about what is causing global warming is far from over. Indeed some would say it is hotting up.

...This is a significant tipping point in the debate. The BBC, once regarded as paragons of media impartiality, lost their well earned laurels by famously doctoring President Obama's acceptance speech in favour of climate alarmism...see Harmless Sky here... they now appear to be hedging their climate change bets. However, irrespective of this, two things are perfectly clear. The climatastrophe scenario; a crude attempt at terror propaganda, has clearly failed. So too, has the attempt to bluster and intimidate by declaring that the science is settled. Note the movement towards cosmic ray/cloud/warming, cooling scenarios. The panic in other words is over. So too then, should be fruitless and draconian "remedies"...more here...
...and totally O/T, but my nomination for the highly coveted Piece Prize ? Silvio Berlusconi of course...more from the loathsome and highly entertaining Roissy here...

Hi Ayrdale, if the BBC about- faces for anything,you can be sure that when backtracking on their previous reporting ,that what they said was utter crap.
These idiots don't apologize for anyone unless it's to save their skin ,least the sheeples call them out.
Then they're fish n chips wrappers for good.
There's too much at stake.
Woo Hoo!.
Flat earthers , bury yourselves and DIE!

It's been unravelling for a long, long time but the last few weeks have been particularly bad for the green left. See also "...It’s hard to be green when you’re red-faced all the time. It’s easy to be red-faced when your cause is global warming doomsterism..."

Look out for some spectacular news in a forthcoming Science article. (Read about it somewhere.)
