Scientists dismiss claims of runaway man-made global warming by Kirk Myers, Examiner.com

Several researchers are claiming in a study published last week that rising greenhouse emissions will raise global temperatures by 6.7 to 8.0 degrees by 2100, even if the earth's climate enters another “Little Ice Age.”

Huh?

In their paper published in the journal of Geophysical Research Letters, Georg Fuelner and Stefan Ramstorf of the Potsdam Institute claim that a long-lasting decline in solar activity – similar to the period from 1300 to 1850 known as the Little Ice Age – would cut only 0.5 degrees from the projected rise in global temperatures this century.

Give Fuelner and Ramstorf credit for not going out on a limb with their prediction. Their forecasting prowess covers only the next 90 years. (A few recently humbled meteorologists at the MET Office in Britain would kill to have such predictive powers.)

Where does such nonsense come from?

According to the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) crowd (e.g., government-paid shills like NASA’s James Hansen, “Hockey Stick” Penn State Professor Michael Mann, and disgraced former Climate Research Unit Director Phil Jones), CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels are being trapped in the atmosphere where they act as a temperature-forcing agent. As CO2 levels continue to rise, the planet will eventually face runaway global warming.

However, there is a problem with their “catastrophic climate change” theory: hard, empirical evidence does not exist to support it.

Is 'climate change' nudging us closer to a new ice age? by Kirk Myers, Examiner.com

As large swaths of the Northern Hemisphere – from the eastern half of North America to Europe, Asia and India – shiver through a big freeze, global warming diehards insist the onslaught of cold weather is an anomaly and warmer temperatures, driven by man-made CO2 and the greenhouse effect, will return with a vengeance.

But several well-known scientists – adherents of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) theory – are dismissing, at least in the near term, dire predictions of soaring global temperatures.

Bolstering the climate-change-is-natural argument, Professor Mojib Latif, an author for the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said that recent fluctuations in ocean currents in the North Atlantic (Arctic Oscillation) may signal cooler temperatures ahead, perhaps for the next 30 years.

"For the time being, global warming has paused, and there may well be some cooling," Latif said, although he stressed the lull is only temporary and may be masking the ongoing effects of man-caused global warming.
