The Problem With Global Non-WarmingAnthony Gregory • Thursday May 1, 2008 3:00 PM PDT •
Here’s a story about how global warming is being offset by natural causes, and why it’s a problem. “Natural climate changes may offset human-caused global warming over the next decade, keeping ocean temperatures the same or even temporarily cooling them slightly, German researchers said on Wednesday. However, this short-term situation might create a problem if policymakers regarded it as a sign they could ease efforts to limit greenhouse gases or play.”
This reminds me of the somewhat recent theory that global dimming—also caused by pollution—is masking the great extent of global warming, which is therefore “a far greater threat to society than previously thought.”
Perhaps if the new ice age finally comes, they’ll also use it as proof that global warming is vastly more apocalyptic than anyone realizes.
