Article You Will Never Find in US Newspaper: ’2008 The Year Man-made Global Warming Was Disproved


Could anyone imagine an article being printed in a US newspaper that 2008 was the Global-warming-whose-to-blameyear that man-made global warming was disproved? Neither can Newsbusters.

It would appear that the Telegraph of London has more journalistic integrity than their fellow newspapers across the pond in the United States. The Telegraph’s article titled, “2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved,” has certainly provided an alternative and interesting read that all should take a look at that is much different than the pandering media global warming alarmists. Will there be an honest discussion with regards to global warming or cooling that it is controlled by “natural factors”, not man-made?

Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects.

First, all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades. This winter, with the whole of Canada and half the US under snow, looks likely to be even worse. After several years flatlining, global temperatures have dropped sharply enough to cancel out much of their net rise in the 20th century.

Ever shriller and more frantic has become the insistence of the warmists, cheered on by their army of media groupies such as the BBC, that the last 10 years have been the “hottest in history” and that the North Pole would soon be ice-free – as the poles remain defiantly icebound and those polar bears fail to drown. All those hysterical predictions that we are seeing more droughts and hurricanes than ever before have infuriatingly failed to materialise.

Even the more cautious scientific acolytes of the official orthodoxy now admit that, thanks to “natural factors” such as ocean currents, temperatures have failed to rise as predicted (although they plaintively assure us that this cooling effect is merely “masking the underlying warming trend”, and that the temperature rise will resume worse than ever by the middle of the next decade).

Flopping Aces has great insight into the global warming alarmism and the key decision that has to be made when discussing and researching the issues, “Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective, and being honest.”

Ed Driscoll provides us with a reminder of the many dud predictions of global warming past as well as the thought that maybe “man-made global cooling” will now be en vogue.

      Government folks look to protect themselves as an ENTITY. They
      seek technical justification for skimming the ‘peoples treasure’ for
      their own invincibility. Al ‘hot air’ Gore is just another fool that
      wants to collect the bucks from us. Beware when our elected
      representatives work only for their own personal welfare!

      Meanwhile close the door, it’s freezing cold outside.

      When i was at primary school in the 70s/80s, it was an ice-age that was being predicted, imo its a cycle, i dont know much about elninio??? i think its called, but is that not a phenomenom that happens every so often????

      After hurricane Katrina a graph of hurricanes down the decades was shown, this proved that a cycle of stronger hurricanes was cyclical(if thats a real word!!!)

      Note that the word “man-made” is put in front of global warming.

      GW is a scientific fact, but as I posted in several other threads, it is a NATURAL, not man-made occurance.

      Thanx to the Telegraph of London for their keen journalism and digging up of fact.

      This is yet more denialist bs.

      Look at the data people. For example, look at the temperature data in the second graph (scroll down a bit) at this site.

      Note the temp drop. Note the context. Stop being stupid.

      well, this Christopher Booker is not a scientists and is known for publishing more columns with false information not only about Global Warming.

      The patron saint of charlatans is again spreading dangerous misinformation

      The Sunday Telegraph columnist Christopher Booker has published 38 articles about asbestos – and every one is wrong

      so no surprise this guy is loved by people who hate science and are proud of their ignorance.

      caesu pontificates…
      “so no surprise this guy is loved by people who hate science and are proud of their ignorance.”

      Please note, only scientists that caesu approves of are intelligent and qualified, the rest being inconsequential.

      Thanks for the heads up. :-)

      this Christopher Booker charlatan isn’t even a scientist.
      and it’s hard to find scientists who are still in denial.

      Part of the issue is that there are weather cycles that last hundreds of years, but which do not reflect permanent changes in climate patterns.

      Since most of us don’t last that long (not even me: I can’t afford it), personal experience is not an adequate yardstick.

      And hard-and-fast temperature readings don’t go back so far, either.

      I’ve been saying it for at least 1 year now. Anyone with common sense can look outside and determine that man-made global warming is a hoax.

      when you take temperature maps or stats from a short period of time you can show anything you set out to show.

      Global warming as put forth by algore is a HOAX, a money maker, a cash cow. If algore really believed his own publicity, why on earth would he arrive by private jets and limousines while maintaining a huge home with a carbon footprint the size of a small city?

      Thats what I’m sayin!

      It’s amazing to me how so many things, such as Gorebal Warming, get politicized and become points of polarization between liberals and conservatives.

      I’ve viewed it, based on what I read and hear, as a cyclical thing, but go to any mainstream media coverage of it, and you’d think “the end is near, the sky is falling, repent!”

      I agree with Katablog, the whole GW thing is a money grabbing HOAX!

      Waiting on a reply from the all-knower of everything, caesu…..

      This global warming theory is just a bunch of hot-air from that air head Al Gore. What a joke! We wouldn’t have global warming if all the politicians would shut that hole under their nose.
