the man-made climate changers (MMCC)
Man-made climate-changers (MMCC) aren't going to let a little thing like falling temperatures upset their apocalyptic hopes for Mother Earth and the attendant dreams of more taxes, regulation and government control.
Even though global tempertures will drop slightly this year as a result of the cooling effects of the La Nina current in the Pacific, MMCCers are already spinning the bad news--for them--into more predictions of coming man-made doom.
The World Meteorological Organization's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer.
This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.
But experts say we are still clearly in a long-term warming trend - and they forecast a new record high temperature within five years.
The WMO points out that the decade from 1998 to 2007 was the warmest on record. Since the beginning of the 20th Century, the global average surface temperature has risen by 0.74C.
Researchers say the uncertainty in the observed value for any particular year is larger than these small temperature differences. What matters, they say, is the long-term upward trend.
So, let's get this straight. When the temperature over 100 years raises less than a degree, the earth is headed for a disaster that only Al Gore and more government control can prevent.
But when the earth cools by the same amount in one year, it's nothing?
You have to hand it to the MMCCers: can't let a little science get into the way of a perfectly good hysteria.
