'Where's the global warming?' Expert says public are growing sceptical of climate change

CMIP5-global-LT-vs-UAH-and-RSSBy: Levi Winchester.

THE PUBLIC are becoming ever more sceptical of climate change as they begin to ask ‘where is the global warming we were promised?’, a leading scientist has claimed.

This week saw the 18th anniversary since the Earth’s temperature last rose – something that Dr Benny Peiser, from the Global Warming Policy Forum, says experts are struggling to understand.

He explains that we are now in the midst of a “crisis of credibility” because the global warming – and accompanied ‘Doomsday’ effects – that we were once warned about has not happened.

Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) once predicted a temperature rise of 0.2 degrees per decade – but are now baffled by the fact our planet’s temperature has not increased for almost two decades.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Dr Peiser said: “What has happened is that the public has become more sceptical because they were told we are facing Doomsday, and suddenly they realise ‘Where is the warming that we were promised?’”

“They say we can predict the climate and the reality is that they can’t.”

  • It is all quiet on the AGW front it seems. It hasn’t been this quiet for a long time. I think it’s a good thing because it means the opposition really has nothing to say. AGW, or as I like to call it, AGWCCD (anthropogenicglobalwarmingclimatechangedisruption), is DOA! There is no warming, natural or man made, and it is driving them crazy.
    Hey, sometimes you have to sync what you believe with reality, and sometimes it ain’t pretty. Here is a little reality check:
    A. Adding CO2 to the atmosphere does not cause the atmosphere to warm. CO2 is a “geenhouse” gas but it does not absorb all heat. It only absorbs certain wavelengths of heat and once those specific wavelengths are absorbed adding more CO2 does nothing.

    B. Because there has been no man made warming, you can not, I repeat, you can not expand the theory to include climate change, extreme weather, rising ocean levels, refugees, ISIS or Ebola. There is simply no foundation for those because they are all predicated on the theory that humans are warming the planet by adding CO2, and the globe has not warmed despite increasing CO2.

    Global warming has become the invisible dog leash, and the true believers insist there is actually a dog there.

      Look, we can argue the science for the next 100 years. Bottom line, global warming is what I refer to as a socialist “guilting mechanism”. In other words, it’s simply another method by socialists to guilt people out of their tax money for the sake of redirecting it to the fascists in government who simply want more control over our lives. Notice the only solution these fascists give as a remedy to global warming or climate change (not surprisingly) is to raise taxes. As always, the one trick pony liberal strikes again with the standard solution to ALL of life’s problems is to raise hard working people’s taxes giving it to the geniuses who’s only accomplishment is spending over a billion dollars to build a buggy, hackable health care website.

      My only question is, how much of a suckering can the average person absorb until they finally realize they’ve been taken by this blatantly obvious money extraction technique?

      • I don’t know. Apparently a lot. The average person trusts the nightly news, scientists, and the government. It is hard to tell someone that the people they trust can’t be trusted, and that they are being manipulated by them. I just hope that more people wake up sooner rather than later.

      • Rob N. Hood

        socialism = fascism. Wow, just wow. And wrong. Extreme right = fascism.

        • I think you’re both wrong. The dictionary says Fascism is:

          A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

          I don’t really see that going on with our current gov., but this could be the case with the far Right or the far Left. I don’t think it matters where on the spectrum the political philosophy originates, it is in how such a government would operate.

          So I guess Adolph, Stalin, Vladamir, Chavez, Castro and Kim Jong Un are all right-wingers eh? Yeah, okay, keep hitting that bong granola boy, does wonders for people who are interested in understanding history.

        • Vladimir Ulyanov

          Actually Rob, Fascism is a left wing phenomenon. Read your history. Even the Nazi’s were National SOCIALISTS.

      • Fietser

        Dan, just admit you don’t understand the science. Science is bipartisan, always has been, always will be.

  • Fietser

    Funny story. The blog says “Dr Peiser is a leading expert on global warming”.

    Yet if you dig just a little bit. Peiser acknowledges that he is “not a climate scientist” and has “never claimed to be one.”

    Now I’m wondering. You all knew that right? I just hope some of you can read, it wasn’t that difficult to find. So why keep on living in this skeptic fantasy of yours?

    • He is a social scientist, and since global warming actually only exists in the minds of fools not unlike yourself, I’d say that it is a social phenomenon and Dr. Peiser is eminently qualified to comment on that.

  • Fietser

    Neilio, thanks for the confirmation. At least you’re honest about it. Next.

    • How does your foot taste? Is it toe-jam flavored?

      • Fietser

        Isn’t time you listened to real scientists? Or don’t they suite your agenda?

    I was really hoping for more global warming so I could cut back on buying fossil fuel to keep my family from freezing .Alas, I’ve been waiting over 18 years with nothing but same old same old .

    I keep waiting for that ice free Arctic but the ice stretches farther than the eye can see .

    What happened to those models ? Where did all the money go ?

    There will always be facts and statistics that people can use to make climate change seem like it’s just a hoax. Even if you are skeptical of climate change, accept that if it IS true it poses a serious threat to everyone on this planet. Do not form your opinions about something as important as this because somebody tells you that everyone else is skeptical of it. People who honestly care about this for reasons greater than political agenda will do honest research with the most unbiased sources they can find and form their own opinions.

      There will always be facts and statistics that people can use to make climate change seem like it’s not just a hoax. Even if you are skeptical of climate change, don’t accept that if it IS true… You see where I’m going. Climate change won’t destroy you, your fear will. I’m tired of scared people like you using the weak logic that it MIGHT be true, so we should do something. What a waste of time and resources. It’s the same flawed logic that has gripped our fraudulent U.S. Federal Bureaucracy. In the end that fear is what will destroy us.

      Stop being a pathetic wimp…..

      The Climate has been changing for Billions of Years….

      Man adapted to this change for tens of thousands of years…..

      …and formed Human Civilization…..

      ….and grew our numbers from lows of hundreds…..

      ….to 7 Billion…..

      Conclusion:

      You are not nearly as Robust as your Ancestors…..

      Ha!!

    Here is the main reason for the Man caused global warming hoax. The Chicken Little’s experts of the climate cry global warming and got many to believe people were causing it. So much so that governments have coughed up 44 billion dollars to fund studies that have predetermined results so they can get more government money. There is not one smidgen of evidence that man has caused global warming. AS CO2 has increased warming stopped in 1997. Its been colder in the earth’s past with higher CO2 and vice versa. Per the Little Ice Age 1600-1815 or so. Now its getting colder. The south pole’s ice cap is growing and is larger than in recorded history. The north pole has no ice cap but has sea ice. The average sea ice passed the 30 year average last year and was 40% larger than in 2013. Here is the bottom line. The SUN is boss and its output varies at regular intervals. Real climate scientists are predicting global cooling for the next 30 yrs as the sun enters a minimum output. Notice we have no hurricanes coming off Africa in the last few years. That is because the oceans are cooling as well. The whole northern hemisphere was colder last year and set decades old records. The great lakes froze completely the last 2 years for the first time since the 70’s. Google global cooling 2015 .

    Here in San Diego we have all been complaining about the summer heat. I wrote it off as people just remembering the past as better than it was. And, I KNOW GLOBAL WARMING IS B S, every show on FOX news has another expert guest exposing how this HOAX is being sold to the American public.

    however, I looked up historical summer temperatures for San Diego going back to 1935, and there is some serious temperature increases starting about 2006.

    Clearly Al Gores people have gone and altered historical records.

    I am waiting for someone to start a blog on the FAKE MOON landings in 1969 andd the early 1970s. I have some valuable information on that. I was captured and my anus was probed by aliens. While they were probing me they told me the moon landings were FAKE . I can tell you more but it was a deeply personal experience.

      “however, I looked up historical summer temperatures for San Diego going back to 1935, and there is some serious temperature increases starting about 2006.”

      Wow……Nice Scientific Analysis!!!

      And the Growing Antarctic Sea and Land Ice…..

      …means the Globe is Cooling, right?

      Ha!!

    The oceans have 50 times the carbon dioxide our atmosphere has. Water retains its carbon dioxide (carbonation) when cool and looses it (goes flat) when warm. A warming climate would warm the oceans releasing more carbon dioxide warming the atmosphere etc…to no end. The earth has warmed before, without unending catastrophic atmospheric/oceanic CO2 feedback. So CO2 must be an incidental re occurrence and not the driving force for GW.

    I ran into this concept. It kind of makes sense but where does it go wrong?

    CLIMATE CHANGE CONSPIRACY: NOT FOR DUMMIES…To completely understand the Climate Change Conspiracy…you must understand 3 things that happened in the 70’s…. That was the genesis…..(1) Richard Nixon signs legislation to create the EPA. (2) Richard Nixon, at the behest of Henry Kissinger, goes to China and opens the door to free trade (3) European interest start the false narrative about Global Cooling. None of this was by accident, but all part of the giant conspiracy to destroy American manufacturing, and move China into the forefront to create one lone Superpower.

    Part 2…over the years the EPA has morphed into a giant government regulatory agency that has strangled manufacturing business with a plethora of senseless government environmental rules as well as thousands of pollutions mandates that make it impossible to comply with…..Over time, 70,000 companies had to close up their factory’s…. with millions of job losses… ….These government regulations were particularly aim at steel, coal.….These manufacturing industries did not disappear from the world stage….they just disappeared from the USA…our leaders have sold us down the drain….this was knowingly and intentional…the final piece of the conspiracy has been the ongoing 30-year massive infrastructure buildup of China….

    that task is near complete… China has invested ‘trillions’ in manufacturing and transportation infrastructure…. without any government restrictions. China now produces ten times the steel that America does….China now manufactures cargo container ships over 4 football fields long, capable of carrying 18,000 cargo containers…..they are quietly buying up shipping ports all over the world, including both ends of the Panama canal and a dozen others right here in the USA… all while at the same time constructing like-minded cargo transportation facilities throughout the eastern hemisphere, even into India and south America…China is planning on doing a massive amount of exporting……China has built a super highway system that makes our turnpikes look like back rural roads….high speed trains in excess of 500 miles an hour as well as state of the art super airports across their continent…..not to mention massive investment in mega power plants……they are now in the process of relocating 3 million Chinese from an area near the South China sea and are constructing a new mega city capable of housing a 100 million man workforce……highly unlikely that china is doing this because they are thinking of going back into the transistor radio business…..not to mention an all-out investment in military technology including a new 20 billion dollar space station….China has quietly set themselves up to be the manufacturing and shipping behemoth of the world…. Unlike anything the world has ever seen or will ever see…….and they could not have done all this without all their complicit friends in Washington DC…and their willing and highly paid accomplice’s in the media……
