This should be a happy day for those that are trying to save polar bears by reducing your carbon footprint. The New York Times finally came out and admitted what foreign news sources and the actual data has been saying for several years: the predicted increase in global temperatures is not happening. Despite an increase in carbon emissions. Whoops.

From the New York Times: The rise in the surface temperature of earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.

Don’t expect the Times for a mea culpa or to suggest a victory parade. They compare those trumpeting this data to someone trying to get you to buy Gold coins being dismissive of the stock market. They dance around the rump failure of these scientists with admirable skill.

Just a note for the Times…critics of the global warming hoax aren’t the ones trying to use this contrived crisis for economic and political gain. Perhaps the burden of proof here should be on the those that are declaring imminent doom based on carbon emissions. But the Times notes that…

“Given how much is riding on the scientific forecast, the practitioners of climate science would like to understand exactly what is going on. They admit that they do not, even though some potential mechanisms of the slowdown have been suggested.”

So let me get this straight. Global warming scientists are working on a theory to determine why their theory is still valid despite the fact the basic premise (that higher carbon levels have a direct impact on global temperature) hasn’t proven true in 15 years?  You really can’t make up stories that are this ridiculous.

Isn’t it possible something else is causing the changes in global climate; since their hypothesis is being shattered by something that even a liberal news organization like the New York Times eventually has to recognize. Reality.

So instead of being happy that the world isn’t coming to an end, the same scientists that have been wrong for 15 years rush about trying to find a way to show they were right all along. After all, government grants and their scientific reputations aren’t going to be saved by admitting there isn’t a problem. And since global warming proponents have a long history of fudging their results, I’m sure they will come up with some explanation to keep the money coming.

They may not want to admit they were wrong but the public can do something about this and stop allowing the Federal government to fund these non-sensical steps to prevent a crisis that isn’t happening.

That is the consensus we all should believe in.
