Now that the small La Niña that has recently ended has begun to have its effect on global temperatures, the UAH monthly global mean lower-troposphere anomalies now show a further sharp drop, lengthening the New Pause by three months, from 5 years 4 months last month to 5 years 10 months this month.
The HadCRUT4 data shows no warming in the 6 years 9 months May 2014 to January 2021:
It is likely that the temperature anomalies will remain below the trend-line for another month or two, lengthening the New Pause still further. Forecasts for the rest of the year suggest that the present ENSO-neutral conditions will remain till the end of the year, with the possibility of another la Niña at the end of this year. The likelihood of El Niño conditions is thought to be remote for now.
Yet, all we hear from the Eco-Socialists is that temps are still going up and “we’re all gonna die next week” (ok, I exaggerate – but not as much as these Eco-Socialists are doing).
Heh! And yes, the Global Warmists do act like a religion:
At an environmental forum, Julian Simon once asked: “How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?”
After a roomful of hands shot up, Simon then asked: “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” Encountering silence, he followed up: “Is there any evidence I could give you—anything at all—that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?”
After more silence, Simon answered: “Well, excuse me. I’m not dressed for church.”
Today’s Church of Climate holds three resolute beliefs:
- The human influence on climate is pronounced and controlling
- That influence cannot be positive or benign, only catastrophic
- Global governance can and must solve this problem
It’s that last item that should worry us all – if Big Government is a huge problem just here in the US, imagine of the UN ever succeeded in becoming THE World Government that they’ve been thirsting for for decades. Although, it seems, the current Pope with his Marxist tendencies (that’s what Liberation Theocracy does – brings one away from Biblical Theology) seems to want to bring back the marriage of Church and State that the Catholic Church had back during Medieval times, so there’s that.
But data is data and right now it is showing that things aren’t getting worse (kinda negates the “catastrophic” part in #2).
So why is it that the Left ALWAYS believes it has the Right to change the rest of us (for whatever reason they can dream up)? Even when the “existential” threat has moderated?
