Pause Hits 18 Years 8 Months

No matter how much Cult of Climastrology members want to Deny it, no matter how they want to create excuses, it’s real. Oh, and no matter how much Warmists want to attack the messenger, Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

(Watts Up With That?) One-third of Man’s entire influence on climate since the Industrial Revolution has occurred since January 1997. Yet for 224 months since then there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1). With this month’s RSS temperature record, the Pause sets a new record at 18 years 8 months.

The hiatus period of 18 years 8 months is the farthest back one can go in the RSS satellite temperature record and still show a sub-zero trend. The start date is not cherry-picked: it is calculated. And the graph does not mean there is no such thing as global warming. Going back further shows a small warming rate.

Other data shows a slight, very, very slight, warming trend. Which, let’s face it, is to be expected during a Holocene warm period.

This data in no way means that warming hasn’t occurred, nor that more warming won’t happen in the future. What it does show is the complete failure of Warmists talking points and computer models. That is the point in showing this. Skeptics do not believe that there hasn’t been warming. They don’t believe that there can’t be more warming. Our debate is over causation, not warming. If, per, CoC talking points and computer models, the Modern Warm Period warming was mostly/solely caused by Mankind, there should not be any pauses. Nor would there be a need for all the excuses.

Oh, and Warmists would actually act like this is a crisis, taking extreme measures in their own lives, rather than demanding taxes and more and more Government control.

    That statement displays a breathtaking degree of ignorance. Aside from your cherrypicking of data (the other datasets do not show a significant slowing of warming), and ignoring the warming oceans this shows a complete and total lack of understanding of the factors that modulate climate.

    And blaming this on Monckton is a bit cowardly. He isn’t responsible for your blog is he?

    So Teach you believe that both last year and this year were NOT the hottest years on record? You believe 1997 was in fact MUCH hotter because Lord Monkeyton says so.
    You believe him rather than the U.S. Navy
    Yes the US Navy has been demounced as part of the CoC
    The data that Lord Moneyton uses is refuted by 2 other groups who track the RSS data
    From Skeptical Science All three groups measuring temperatures of the troposphere show a warming trend. The U.S. Climate Change Science Program produced a study (pdf) in April 2006 on this topic. Lead authors included John Christy of UAH and Ben Santer of Lawrence Livermore National Labs. The first page has this quote:

    Previously reported discrepancies between the amount of warming near the surface and higher in the atmosphere have been used to challenge the reliability of climate models and the reality of human-induced global warming… This significant discrepancy no longer exists because errors in the satellite and radiosonde data have been identified and corrected. New data sets have also been developed that do not show such discrepancies.”
    There are still some discrepancies between satellite measured temperatures in the tropics and those measured by radioson

    des. Most researchers believe this difference is likely due to instrument errors.
    Typical Monkeytonshines. He conveniently ignores all studies which disprove his contentions and then cherry picks one
