FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Another Defeat for the Church of Global Warming?

In “An Inconvenient Truth,” Al Gore makes the claim:


“The 10 warmest years in history were in the last 14 years.”

This is a major tenant of the Church of Global Warming. Many Global Warming believers accept this as absolute truth. And, their partners in the media find it necessary, with each new year, to announce a new “Warmest Year on Record.”

2005

2006
2007

Accepting these reports as absolute truth would make it very easy to believe Al Gore’s claim that the last 14 years have brought about the 10 warmest years in history.

But, what would happen if new data disputed this claim? What would happen if a major source for Global Warming hysteria, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, released new figures which brought Al Gore’s statistic into question? Would that be an important finding...something worth reporting? I would think so.

Yet, the media disagrees. Earlier this week, the GISS recalculated their numbers of annual mean surface temperatures in the United States. Interestingly enough, they report the top 10 warmest years on record as follows:

1934
1998
1921
2006
1931
1999
1953
1990
1938
1954

By the way, those are listed in order from warmest to coolest. Notice, if you will, how many of those years took place within the past 14 years. Count them. 4.

Only four of the warmest years in the United States took place within the last 14 years. And, the warmest year on record is not among those 14 years. In the United States, the warmest year on record was 1934.

This evidence is in direct contradiction with one of Al Gore’s main points. A major tenant for the Church of Global Warming is being called into question. Have you heard anything about it before now?

I didn’t think so.

It should be noted that Al Gore's original claim, "The 10 warmest years in history were in the last 14 years," was in reference to GLOBAL temperatures and not temperatures in the United States. However, the United States has the most sophisticated and accurate climate data collection systems in the entire world. Now that the United States' temperature data has been recalculated, it is safe to assume that the records for Global Temperatures would change dramatically as well.

But, moving beyond that note, the larger point still remains. This important shift in temperature data merits a few questions to be asked about the claims of Global Warming alarmists. But, the media has yet to ask anything about it. They have yet to question GISS about any of its research. Nothing is being made out of this!

Keep in mind, this report has been out for two days now. In the world of media, two days is an eternity. If you report something two days late, you are reporting old news. Yet, this study has not made any headlines. The GISS, which is headed by the Global Warming alarmist James Hansen, has yet to make an official announcement. They have completely and utterly buried this study.

Keep moving, folks. There’s nothing to see here.

The GISS and the media are sitting on a landmark case study. Why has this not been a lead story of every media outlet in the country?

Wait…nevermind. I know the answer.
