Ahhhh...our mainstream media...can be counted on to report on an issue from all angles so we can look at the evidence and decide for ourselves. Oh! Sorry, that was the media 60 years ago... Today the mainstream media decides which side is true according to their gospel then presents the "debate" only from that angle. So things must be getting scarier for MSBNC, NBC, ABC and CNN when more and more scientists are presenting us with evidence that global warming is caused by NATURAL EVENTS. Gheeees, who woulda thunk!
Climate Change: A new scientific paper says that man has had little or nothing to do with global temperature variations. Maybe the only place it's really getting hotter is in Al Gore's head.
Because he must be getting flustered now, what with his efforts to save the benighted world from global warming continually being exposed as a fraud.
The true believers will not be moved by the peer-reviewed findings of Chris de Freitas, John McLean and Bob Carter, scientists at universities in Australia and New Zealand.
Warming advocates have too much invested in perpetuating the myth. (And are probably having too much fun calling those who don't agree with them "deniers" and likening skeptics to fascists.)
But these scientists have made an important contribution to the debate that Gore says doesn't exist.
Their research, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, indicates that nature, not man, has been the dominant force in climate change in the late 20th century.
"The surge in global temperatures since 1977 can be attributed to a 1976 climate shift in the Pacific Ocean that made warming El Nino conditions more likely than they were over the previous 30 years and cooling La Nina conditions less likely" says co-author de Freitas.
"We have shown that internal global climate-system variability accounts for at least 80% of the observed global climate variation over the past half-century. It may even be more if the period of influence of major volcanoes can be more clearly identified and the corresponding data excluded from the analysis."
These findings are largely being ignored by the mainstream media...(READ at IBD)
