The end of a tale

Via reader DP111 we get this news from the Daily Mail: Forget global warming - it's Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again).
The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.

The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.

Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.
See also the helpful chart reproduced above. Can we now, finally, call an end to the fairy tale that is (was) anthropogenic global warming?

Can I have all my AGW stealth taxes returned to me?

I will forgive any interest accrueing on the basis that the politicians were duped by "dishonest scientists". I will also allow them to claim that it was an honest mistake.

“I Feel Duped on Climate Change”

Will reduced solar activity counteract global warming in the coming decades? That is what outgoing German electric utility executive Fritz Vahrenholt claims in a new book. In an interview with SPIEGEL, he argues that the official United Nations forecasts on the severity of climate change are overstated and supported by weak science.,1518,813814,00.html

This is not the age of Global warming or even Climate Change-the latter has been with us since day zero on planet earth. What we have is the dawning of the Age of Stupidity(Music set to (Hair").

Now here is a link that is worth grinning over.

The Age of Stupid is a 2009 British film by Franny Armstrong, director of McLibel and Drowned Out, and founder of 10:10, and first-time producer Lizzie Gillett. The Executive Producer is John Battsek, producer of One Day in September.

The film is a drama-documentary-animation hybrid which stars the late Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage from the mid-to-late 2000s and asking "Why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?"
