Scientists struggling to explain slowdown in climate change

Does that include the consensus 100,000 scientists--or just East Anglia University?

I was listening to NPR the other day and heard the national news guru say that rising carbon dioxide levels are being camouflaged as they sink into the oceans. This, he said, is no reason to suspend our alarm. It really doesn't affect my alarm levels either way.

The highlighted word "suspend" is not mine. You will not win anything by clicking on it or any other highlighted word or phrase in this post.

that rising carbon dioxide levels are being camouflaged as they sink into the oceans.

The Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warminists are having a hissy about this latest reported study.

Global greening, the other 'greenhouse effect', is underway

It gets to the reality that not all bad news is bad for everyone and at all times. The cult you mention is simply unable to appreciate this basic reality, even if we very charitably grant their unproven argument that there is global warming that we have caused.

Actually, we have added slightly to the "increase in surface temperatures" ...... most notably the night time and winter temperatures, ..... via the Heat Island Effect ...... or oftentimes referred to as the "Urban Heat Island Effect". Roads, bridges, houses, buildings, autos, sidewalks, parking lots, etc., etc.

But said cult will not recognize it as a significant contributing factor, ..... simply because, if they do recognize said ...... it will negate most all of their claims of monthly/yearly Average Temperature Increases.

Most all of said cult will admit that "it is always hotter in the city" ........ but they won't admit that the "hotter" thingy is affecting their thermometer readings.

I'd not heard the name "Heat Island Effect" but it makes perfect sense. I'm also told that humidity goes up when people artificially put up lawns. We can surely fiddle with local conditions, but that's not what the cultists are talking about, as you well note.

Here is a night time picture of part of North America where only the major Heat Island areas are being "lit up" by artificial lighting.



If you had a similar circa 1870 picture .... it would be pretty much totally black.

Makes you wonder why those AGW warminists get so excited about "breaking" long time temperature records that date back to the 1870's.
