Since 2008, the federal government has spent more than $72 billion to fight something that more and more experts claim doesn’t even exist: Anthropogenic global warming (AGW), also known as man-made global warming and man-made climate change.
A recent study revealed that the perceived warming trend actually ceased back in 1998, and now a new study confirms that the world was much warmer 1,000 years ago. Back then the only carbon burned was wood in stoves and fireplaces. SUVs, utility plants, indeed, the entire Industrial revolution, was still many hundreds of years in the future.
And another inconvenient truth facing those that promote AGW is despite a 33 percent rise in world carbon dioxide emissions, the Earth’s temperature has remained flat.
The study that reveals the planet was much warmer 1,000 years ago than it is now is titled, “The extra-tropical Northern Hemisphere temperature in the last two millennia: reconstructions of low-frequency variability.” It’s published in the journal “Climate of the Past.”
The paper can be found in its entirety here [PDF].
Astonishingly to many who believe in AGW, the research has proved that greater warming occurred during 950 1050 A.D. In fact, the entire first millennium was significantly warmer than the second. Part of the second millennium was even punctuated by what climatologists refer to as Little Ice Ages.
This news is not surprising to many climatologists that have been arguing—sometimes in vain—against the political-scientific community that captured the attention of the mainstream media.
World renown scientist George Kukla, 77, a retired professor of paleoclimatology at Columbia University and researcher at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has observed, “The only thing to worry about global warming is the damage that can be done by worrying. Why are some scientists worried? Perhaps because they feel that to stop worrying may mean to stop being paid.”
Kukla warns not of global warming—man-made or otherwise—but of a serious, impending Ice Age.
In an interview with Glef Magazine during early 2011, Kukla explained: “What is happening is very similar to the time 115,000 years ago, when the last glaciation started. It is difficult to comprehend, but it is really so: The last glacial was accompanied by the increase of a really averaged global mean surface temperature, alias global warming.
“What happened then was that the shifting sun warmed the tropics and cooled the Arctic and Antarctic. Because the tropics are so much larger than the poles, the area-weighted global mean temperature was increasing. But also increasing was the temperature difference between the oceans and the poles, the basic condition of polar ice growth. Believe it or not, the last glacial started with ‘global warming!'”
