Well, well, well. Would it surprise you to know that there’s been no acceleration in global warming for nearly a quarter century?
If you’re like us, probably not.
But it’s just another reality in the really real world of science that has demonstrated from a completely different perspective how entirely unscientific the global warming elite has become.
According to a recent study conducted by the University of Alabama, if heat from volcanic eruptions is removed from the equation, the rate of increase in global temperature has been less than a tenth of a degree per decade.
This won’t sit well with Mother Earth worshipers, so look soon for new leftist studies on why volcanoes are also man-made.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
Global warming has not accelerated temperature rise in the bulk atmosphere in more than two decades, according to a new study funded by the Department of Energy.
University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists John Christy and Richard McNider found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record it showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s.
“We indicated 23 years ago — in our 1994 Nature article — that climate models had the atmosphere’s sensitivity to CO2 much too high,” Christy said in a statement. “This recent paper bolsters that conclusion.”
Christy and McNider found the rate of warming has been 0.096 degrees Celsius per decade after “the removal of volcanic cooling in the early part of the record,” which “is essentially the same value we determined in 1994 … using only 15 years of data.”
The study is sure to be contentious. Christy has argued for years that climate models exaggerate global warming in the bulk atmosphere, which satellites have monitored since the late 1970s.
Christy, a noted skeptic of catastrophic man-made global warming, said his results reinforce his claim that climate models predict too much warming in the troposphere, the lowest five miles of the atmosphere. Models are too sensitive to increases in carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere, he said.
