We keep hearing about a tipping point in the global warming mess, a point of no return at which the Earth will simply be on fire. But last week, the leftists using global warming propaganda to push their socialist agenda hit a tipping point of their own, when one of Australia’s top climate scientists described in great detail — to a national radio audience — not only how the Earth stopped warming ten years ago, but the degree of consensus among scientists on this point (and the unwillingness of media to report it).
Duffy asked Marohasy: “Is the Earth still warming?”
She replied: “No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you’d expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years.”
Duffy: “Is this a matter of any controversy?”
Marohasy: “Actually, no.”
Read the rest here. It’s a real eye-opener, even to people who haven’t accepted Al Gore’s received wisdom.
UPDATE: And just for good measure, it turns out that it’s a record year for snowfall too.
