Global Warming: Natural Causes #2
This is from Newswise.com:
A new report on climate over the world's southernmost continent shows that temperatures during the late 20th century did not climb as had been predicted by many global climate models.
This comes soon after the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that strongly supports the conclusion that the Earth's climate as a whole is warming, largely due to human activity.
It also follows a similar finding from last summer by the same research group that showed no increase in precipitation over Antarctica in the last 50 years. Most models predict that both precipitation and temperature will increase over Antarctica with a warming of the planet.
David Bromwich, professor of geography and researcher with the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University, reported on this work at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at San Francisco.
Thus proving the results from the climate models used by the U.N.'s IPCC are overblown.
Bromwich does make an attempt to defend the models, stating that they are global, and not region specific, however, that just proves, once again, that the accuracy of these computerized climate models. If they are being used to predict warming trends on a global basis, then they should have been designed to include data and variables on a global basis. In computer talk, "garbage in, garbage out."
This is not to say that there isn't a warming trend. As many scientists have pointed out, including Avery and Sanger in their book Unstoppable Global Warming, as well as the 1995 IPCC report, this warming trend has been going on since the Little Ice Age ended in 1850.
However, the politicization of Global Warming has resulted in known facts, such as the Medieval Warming Period (Viking Era) and the Little Ice Age to be ignored by groups pushing the "it's man's fault" agenda.
The factors impacting the Earth's climate appear to range in the millions, and some are only recently being understood, such the circumpolar westerlies, as pointed out in the article.
When one takes into account the science of the Earth's climate, it becomes obvious that it is, in fact, a natural phenomenon.
