AGW Today: WWF Chicken Littles Go For Broke

Hey, gotta keep those donations up somehow. God forbid they concentrate on actually and simply trying to conserve wildlife. Climate change accelerating far beyond the IPCC forecast, WWF says

Climate change is happening much faster than the world’s best scientists predicted and will wreak havoc unless action is taken on a global scale, a new report warns.

Extreme weather events such as the hot summer of 2003, which caused an extra 35,000 deaths across southern Europe from heat stress and poor air quality, will happen more frequently.

Britain and the North Sea area will be hit more often by violent cyclones and sea level rise predictions will double to more than a metre putting vast coastal areas at risk from flooding.

The bleak report from WWF – formerly the World Wildlife Fund – also predicts crops failures and the collapse of eco systems on both land and sea.

Only problem is, changes in the natural world, such as solar activity and a negative Pacific Decadal Oscillation (La Nina), have seriously reduced so called climate change (Lorne Gunter)

In early September, I began noticing a string of news stories about scientists rejecting the orthodoxy on global warming. Actually, it was more like a string of guest columns and long letters to the editor since it is hard for skeptical scientists to get published in the cabal of climate journals now controlled by the Great Sanhedrin of the environmental movement.

Still, the number of climate change skeptics is growing rapidly. Because a funny thing is happening to global temperatures — they’re going down, not up.

How can that be? No sunspots, solar wind reduced, La Nina building. Eh, Man must have caused them.

Also in September, American Craig Loehle, a scientist who conducts computer modelling on global climate change, confirmed his earlier findings that the so-called Medieval Warm Period (MWP) of about 1,000 years ago did in fact exist and was even warmer than 20th-century temperatures.

What? The chicken littles (who talk a lot, but take little action themselves beyond “raising awereness”)

For nearly 30 years, Professor Christy has been in charge of NASA’s eight weather satellites that take more than 300,000 temperature readings daily around the globe. In a paper co-written with Dr. Douglass, he concludes that while manmade emissions may be having a slight impact, “variations in global temperatures since 1978 … cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide.”

Moreover, while the chart below was not produced by Douglass and Christy, it was produced using their data and it clearly shows that in the past four years — the period corresponding to reduced solar activity — all of the rise in global temperatures since 1979 has disappeared.

It may be that more global warming doubters are surfacing because there just isn’t any global warming.

Go on over to the story and see the chart. How can that possibly be? I’m sure the Climahysterics wil find a way to attack Mr. Gunter personally, as well as others involved, then just say that the “evidence” is “fake.”

    I saw this story over at CNN and was wondering if you were going to do a post on it. I wrote a post a while back that said that if the high-pressure salesman is trying to get you to buy his product “NOW” or you’ll be sorry later, then you’d better be wary. Looks like the Global Warm..er Coolin… er. Climate Change Bubbas are trying to cash in before everyone realizes they’re a bunch of retards/scammers
