Today’s Washington Examiner broke the story on a recent speech August 1 by the Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell. She stated “I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior.” She also indicated “that no one working for her should challenge the idea that human activity is driving recent warming.”
When people do not have facts on their side they resort to “bullying” which has also been in the news lately, but in a different context. It’s “OK” if it’s the government doing the bullying. If Ms. Jewell had read recent findings (from both pro- and con- global warming proponents) she would know that there has been no warming for the recent period of 16 years which is the minimum length to determine trends. Perhaps she should check the charts for the last 2,000 years to see the trends of warming and cooling. How could humans have caused such variations back then? Check the data at http://www.drroyspencer.com/ . With CO2 levels rather high the warming should be taking place, but it isn’t. So high CO2 isn’t the (only) cause. There’s still a lot to learn about our environment. An important point to remember is this: the current models that predicted global warming were wrong when they did not predict the steady state of the last 16 years. Therefore they cannot be trusted. They need new prediction models that accurately predict trends. Then they will have a tool to rely on. Currently they only have their hot air as a basis. Maybe that’s why the CO2 levels are so high. Hmmm.
