Break out the Champaign and gas-guzzling SUVs ’cause global warming is officially over! Now we can now burn up all the dirty tarsands oil we want and frack to our hearts’ content.
An apparent lull in rising temperatures over the past decade proves there is no global warming!
But the science tells a different story.
Can’t bank on short term trends
Above, time frames are cherry picked to support the absurd premise that temperatures are flat and global warming has stopped.
But an honest interpretation of the data shows a troubling long-term warming trend:
What happens if an actual cooling period comes?
The Earth has a very complex climate. It’s possible a real cooling period could come our way. In fact, that’s exactly what happened from about 1945 to 1975. Then temperatures were on a slight downward trend:
But by 1990, global warming sprang back with a vengeance. It was as if the cooling period never happened:
Over the past 20 years, global warming has actually sped up.
So clearly a lull in warming is, by no means, an indication the phenomenon has — by some unexplainable process — come to a stop.
According to the science, the planet is warming due to a continuous rise of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, which are higher now than they’ve been in millions of years.
We mustn’t allow ourselves to be fooled by neo-cons with a corrupt anti-regulation economic agenda. Their misanthropic philosophy of unfettered greed and self-interest will be the downfall of civilization if we allow it.
