“The oceans ate the warming” is not working.
Well, it begs the obvious question – “Well if you’re so clever why didn’t you tell us that!?”
So we now get the new one – It’s the cooling Sun, but Warming will eventually swamp it.
“It is worth stressing that most scientists believe long term global warming hasn’t gone away. Any global cooling caused by this natural phenomenon would ultimately be temporary, and if projections are correct, the long term warming caused by carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases would eventually swamp this solar-driven cooling.”
This, of course, does not work either.
ONE “Projections” were not correct before, so why are they now?
TWO The UN IPCC have relied on their dismissal of “natural forcings” but now “natural forcings” must be taken into account.
THREE The effects of “natural forcings” are now demonstrated to be unpredictable and this thus invalidates the UN IPCC previous, but more importantly, future, “projections”.
FOUR Since Alarmists completely failed to predict this solar forcing how can they now claim it will only be “temporary”, The Maunder minimum lasted over 70 years.
FIVE There has been an almost exponential rise in fossil fuel burning since WW2, sixty years ago, yet “natural forcings” have neutralised “Global Warming” for over fifteen years now.
POSTCRIPT – This does not mean that we can accurately predict the global temperature as this sceptic scientist points out here – http://www.thegwpf.org/cold-winters-hot-news/ (nice to see some debate on G. warming for a change!)
