Global warmists at the New York Times are like the kid who gets pony crap for Christmas.
They just keep digging.
In Tuesday’s Times Science section (buried on page 3D in print, according to the website), is “What to Make of a Warming Plateau,” a story by consistent alarmist writer Justin Gillis reporting that recorded temperatures globally have stopped rising over the past 15 to 20 years.
Could that mean the world isn’t really growing warmer after all? That the human race isn’t heading to extinction because of American air conditioners and refrigerators that run on electricity from coal-fired power plants?
Of course not, Gillis reassures his readers.
Catastrophe is still coming. The world’s still getting warmer.
It’s just that the heat is … uh … around here somewhere.
“And a prime suspect is the deep ocean,” Gillis writes. “Our measurements there are not good enough to confirm it absolutely, but a growing body of research suggests this may be an important part of the answer.”
Just a coincidence that the single best place global warmists can think of to explain where the expected heat is disappearing to is the one place on earth we can’t measure to prove it one way or the other. And Gillis relieves the climate-mongers of even trying to prove it theoretically.
“Exactly why the ocean would have started to draw down extra heat in recent years is a mystery, and one we badly need to understand. But the main ideas have to do with possible shifts in winds and currents that are causing surface heat to be pulled down faster than before.”
Anything’s possible if you just believe it hard enough.
The world has stopped warming, but it’s still warming. The heat’s here somewhere, but we can’t measure where. And we don’t know why it’s going there.
As always with The Times, the global warming argument boils down to “because we said so.”
There’s got to be a pony around here somewhere.
