The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures. This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
Human-caused global warming is dead as a doornail. China’s industrialization since 1996 alone disproves the connection between production and rising temperatures.
But the good news is that we can start fondly looking back on Global Warming as one of those wacky 80s and 90s trends that just didn’t carry over to this century. Global Warming has become the relic of a quaint time of big hair and big dreams when children that picking up litter off the beach would save the planet from some unspecified evil and that the ozone layer was about to break open like some giant space-zit and cover the earth in radioactive mutants.
We know better now. It’s time for all the people making millions and billions from a dated 90s scam to come clean and cut out this nonsense.
Doesn’t Al Gore have enough money already?
