We live in fun times. In the beginning there were 2 charts, rising global temperatures, and rising carbon dioxide. As well, we had the flood of satellite data, which was all new. (See the backgrounder to the right)
The original hypothesis was boring and broken. It merely stated that the rise in co2 would act as a thermal blanket and we would have uniform global warming. That failed, and they continued to 'modify' it, which is not allowed. Now, it is extreme differences, which means hot and cold, dry and wet. It's like saying 'black can be white, or even orange.'
This is a good basis for media stories, but you wouldn't want to build a nuclear plant on that type of logic, but they are anyway. :) Anyway, this article confirms that on Tuesday, global warming is dry, and on Thursdays, it is wet. Other times, it is hot in Siberia, and then cold in Canada.
Everything is after the fact, and is useless to predict anything. Every day they extrapolate, and the day after, they change it. Global temperatures are going down, but that's the Evil Jet Stream. I love it, and hope nobody bothers me. However, I would never 'deny' their religion of the day, too many people are making a ton of money, and they would 'Hamilton Mob' me in a minute, while drinking the blood of dead babies. :) (I put in that conspiracy for Pens).
