The UK Met Office developed a new version of its climate model, since the old one did not make accurate predictions. Their new climate model predicts no further global warming out to 2017, the 5-year limit of its forecast. Based upon this new forecast, there will be no global warming since 1997, or for 20 years, even though atmospheric carbon dioxide has been rising and will continue to rise.
This new climate forecast falsifies the global warming hypothesis that more carbon dioxide will cause global warming. Therefore, according to the UK Met Office, global warming is dead. For political reasons, the UK Met Office may not wish to say it this way, but you can be sure the scientists in the Office realize full well the significance of their new forecast.
The new climate forecast differs significantly from this old 2007 forecast by the UK Met Office, which forecast continuing global warming.
Since every claim by climate alarmists is based upon climate model forecasts and not on real data, this new forecast pulls the rug out from under climate alarmists. There is no reason to support wind energy with our tax dollars. There is no reason to tax carbon dioxide emissions, except as an excuse to increase taxes to feed out-of-control big government.
Since the United Nations ICLEI is based upon the global warming myth, all cities not in it should reject it and all cities in it should get out of it.
There is no reason for Obama to stop the Keystone Pipeline. There is no reason for Democrats to stop gas, oil, and coal energy production on public lands.
