Cooling world temperatures make it difficult for Copenhagen climate conference

Issue: This week the German magazine Der Spiegel has an article entitled “Climatologists Baffled by Global Warming Time-Out” in which Germany’s leading meteorologist, Mojib Latif says, “At present, however, the warming is taking a break. There can be no argument about that.” Latif attributes the earth’s cooling to the Pacific decadal oscillation which allows “cold deep-sea water to rise to the surface at the equator.” Others claim it is due to low solar activity.
Whatever the cause, the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which had claimed the world had warmed by .2 degrees Celsius between 1999 to 2008 had to be corrected by Britain’s Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research. The British scientists found that the world had not warmed at all when factoring in El Nino and La Nina even though some parts of the planet such as the Arctic have warmed.
In fact, officials at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit admit a hacker has gotten into their computer system, taken files and emails which then made it onto the internet showing scientists admitting they manipulated or suppressed data to make the case that man-made climate change was happening. For example, one email reportedly said, “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.”
Comment: The tragedy is that even this admission that the earth is not warming will not slow down Democrats’ efforts to impose a carbon tax on our struggling economy in the name of climate change because companies like Goldman Sachs, GE, GM, Exelon and Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection stand to make millions off the carbon trading scheme.
Comment: So, one has to ask, what is the real motive of the Democrats? Socialism ? Oh, sorry. Liberals don’t like to be called socialists. . . .or even liberals. . . . they are just progressives but they still want to control the economy in the name of global warming.
