Global Warming has Temporarily
´Paused´ due to Climate Fluctuations
and Weaker Solar Irradiance

International Business Times, by Jayalakshmi K

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/20/2014 7:37:47 AM

Global warming has been temporarily ´paused´ according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. Researchers at ETH Zurich have explained the two reasons behind the warming hiatus in their study published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it. However, climate fluctuations such as El Niño and its counter-phenomenon La Niña have

The "pause" is almost 18 years old and now they try to come up with an explanation for it that validates their theories. They don´t have a clue about what is going on.

I wonder how long a "pause" has to go on before it officially becomes a permanent trend.

Previously you couldn´t get them to consider natural variation as a factor for love nor money. Now they are using that to try to save their bacon.

Yes, it has "temporarily" paused for the last 17 years.

Here´s my theory - the climate has always changed. We just didn´t have 24/7/52 news and weather channels to harp about it and shove it in our faces. 40 years ago we would not even have been aware of weather trends on the opposite coast much less the South Pacific.

On the Weather Channel they look positively depressed there is no heat wave to report about. They can´t even tout the ´Heat Index´ to fright viewers. Also, the hurricane season is looking ´bleak´ since no tropical storms are developing although we´re approaching the height of the season.

We need to send the climate change scientists to the sun so they can determine how human activity on the earth has caused the solar activity to fluctuate. Then they can return to earth and report to its citizens.

The headline is sufficient to falsify the entire theory of global warming. The science was settled and the models showing exponential increases in temperature and sea level were treated as the oracles of God. They have now been shown to be flat wrong. Ergo, the whole theory can be discarded.

If the Left abandons the man-made global warming narrative, you can be sure it will come up with a new one. It is never short of narratives. Somewhere lurks an issue that will be spun by the Left to increase its control over how we live, and it will be linked to the generation of schemes and cash-flows designed to benefit Leftist causes.

I can´t even begin to hide my flabbergastation over this "article". Start with:

"which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it."

Models do not measure anything, models are not data, models do not produce real data, the produce best guess fits to actual data.

Which these "scientists" insist is wrong, because there are not enough temperature stations to actually measure the global temperature to show how much its really rising. So they "fix" this problem by creating data using a model to provide the needed extra Data which when fed back into a model gives them the answer they couldn´t get with the actual data they had to begin with. No comment on the fact that the "warming" of the previous century was based on those same, apparently untrustworthy and insufficient, weather monitoring stations.

They then insist that once the climate stops having el ninos and la ninas and volcanic eruptions and the sun starts behaving as they think it should their model will produce data that will accurately show that we´re all going to fry.

They really jumped the shark on this one.

After spending a nearly 40 year career as an engineer, doing graduate school work on computer modeling of complex systems, and spending my career using some of the biggest supercomputers made to model complex physics, it is absolutely clear that the "climate models" are and always have been total hogwash.

The climate is FAR, FAR too randomly variable and poorly defined in mathematical terms to write any sort of a model that has even a modest correlation with reality.

Their models CANNOT take data from 1900 and predict correctly the climate in 1950, and they have had to "hand adjust" them to make them come even close - which PROVES that the models are worthless.

This is the biggest scam ever run, and has been falling flat for almost two decades, yet these charlatans, thieves, 3rd rate "scientist" pretending to be great scientists, politicians and general grifters have sold this lie to a credulous, uneducated and uncurious press and PART of the public.

The scam is steadily unraveling and this needs to be pushed back against, HARD. Collapse their house of cards, NOW.

How could they discount the influence of the sun? Temperatures increase during the day, and decrease at night.

Also, the data they used was highly flawed. They put temperature monitoring stations as close to artificial heat sources as possible.

MILWAUKEE — She can rouse a crowd as she did here this week, connect with women and drive turnout among African-American voters. Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.

The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency. A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

Nearly 35,000 walruses were discovered this month on a northwest Alaskan shore as result of being unable to find sea ice to rest upon, a problem aggravated by climate change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. The unusually massive walrus gatherings were first spotted on Sept. 13 when NOAA conducted its annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press. The marine mammals use sea ice as diving platforms to hunt for food in shallow areas, or as resting points to avoid long, exhausting swims. While it is normal for sea ice to recede into

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
