    The climate alarmists have come up with a brilliant new excuse to explain why there has been no “global warming” for nearly 19 years.
    Turns out the satellite data is lying.

    And to prove it they’ve come up with a glossy new video starring such entirely trustworthy and not at all biased climate experts as Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann , Kevin “Travesty” Trenberth and Ben Santer. (All of these paragons of scientific rectitude feature heavily in the Climategate emails)

    The video is well produced and cleverly constructed – designed to look measured and reasonable rather than yet another shoddy hit job in the ongoing climate wars.

    Sundry “experts”, adopting a tone of “more in sorrow than anger” gently express their reservations about the reliability of the satellite data which, right up until the release of this video, has generally been accepted as the most accurate gauge of global temperatures.

    This accuracy was acknowledged 25 years ago by NASA, which said that “satellite analysis of the upper atmosphere is more accurate, and should be adopted as the standard way to monitor temperature change.”

    More recently, though, climate alarmists have grown increasingly resentful of the satellite temperature record because of its pesky refusal to show the warming trend they’d like it to show. Instead of warming, the RSS and UAH satellite data shows that the earth’s temperatures have remained flat for over 18 years – the so-called “Pause.”

    Hence the alarmists’ preference for the land- and sea-based temperature datasets whichdo show a warming trend – especially after the raw data has been adjusted in the right direction. Climate realists, however, counter that these records have all the integrity of Enron’s accounting system or of Hillary’s word on what really happened in Benghazi.

    Leftist believe that global change is driven by carbon emissions and call for socialistic dictatorships.

    Scientists are saying that solar activity drives climate and that we are headed into a 30 year cold spell due to the lack of solar flares and that the common man should stock up a year's food supply for the bad times ahead.

    I disagree. Leftists do not believe it but they want to convince everyone else to believe it in order to gain power. They know it is a farce.

    All this reminds me of the Y2K scare - remember?

    Only difference - the global warming (oops I mean climate change) date is indefinite and movable like a religious holiday at the will of the pope.

    Which pretty much underscores the true, actual position: "It's our best guess. Tune in tomorrow when we think we'll know more, and be able to make a better guess."

    Of course 40 years ago we were headed for an ice age so you know......so much for science!

    Here is the RSS data in question.

    So still warming but not as much as previous models predicted.
