Global Warming Fears Cooling?

"Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as the year man-made global warming fears “bite the dust”"

"Looks like man-made global warming theory is melting away faster than you can say Al Gore. A lot of reputations are now going to disappear along with it: all those who were part of the famous ‘consensus’ (not). Those people should never be taken seriously again.

It’s over, guys. Reason, truth and real science are fighting back."
Ouch! Don't miss Melanie Phillips in the Spectator, where she quotes geophysicist David Denning and a US Senate report, for all the details. She also quotes the New Statesman, which observes:
For the past decade the world has not warmed. Global warming has stopped. It’s not a viewpoint or a sceptic’s inaccuracy. It’s an observational fact…. So we are led to the conclusion that either the hypothesis of carbon dioxide induced global warming holds but its effects are being modified in what seems to be an improbable though not impossible way, or, and this really is heresy according to some, the working hypothesis does not stand the test of data.
Well worth a read, even if you disagree — perhaps, especially if you disagree.

Your Scientists and commentator clearly have not been watching the TV documentary "Earth - The Power of the Planet" televised on Tuesday evenings, which justifies a far more pesimistic view of the long term future of our planet.

Hardly surprising, given the BBC's known bias on this issue! It is one of the reasons why they have lost their reputation for independent reporting and analysis.
