    Well here it is, the newest Gospel for the liberal bible - 21 scientists meeting in France have released a report that temperatures are rising all over the globe and ice is melting and sea levels rising.

    I wonder if they bothered to mention in their report that temperatures have been rising and ice sheets have been melting around the globe since the last ice age.

    Actually you're wrong there. Temperatures have remained relatively stable over the past 50,000 years. The only exceptions to this rule being a few somewhat strange events such as the Little Ice Age during the late Medieval period and the aftermath of large climatic events such as a major volcanic eruption.

    From Fox News:

    A House subcommittee hearing on climate change and the warming of the planet was called off today — because of the snow and ice storm that hit Washington. In Saint Louis — a scheduled showing of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" was canceled by Maryville University — because of the harsh winter weather.

    Temperatures in Antarctica Haven’t Climbed as Predicted By Climate Models
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on February 15, 2007 - 22:11.
    There’s a new study out from Ohio State University that seems destined to be totally ignored by the media and all the global warming alarmists.

    As many folks that have been following this debate are well aware, the majority of the hysteria surrounding anthropogenic global warming is based on climate models created by folks responsible for much of the fear generated by this issue.

    With that in mind, a new report out of Ohio State University concludes, “the world’s southernmost continent shows that temperatures during the late 20th century did not climb as had been predicted by many global climate models.”

    As of 10PM EST, not one major media outlet has bothered to report these findings.

    The article continued (emphasis mine throughout):

    David Bromwich, professor of geography and researcher with the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University, reported on this work at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at San Francisco.

    “It’s hard to see a global warming signal from the mainland of Antarctica right now,” he said. “Part of the reason is that there is a lot of variability there. It’s very hard in these polar latitudes to demonstrate a global warming signal. This is in marked contrast to the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula that is one of the most rapidly warming parts of the Earth.”

    Bromwich says that the problem rises from several complications. The continent is vast, as large as the United States and Mexico combined. Only a small amount of detailed data is available – there are perhaps only 100 weather stations on that continent compared to the thousands spread across the U.S. and Europe. And the records that we have only date back a half-century.

    Of course, this has been pointed out by many of the global warming skeptics in the past several years. Unfortunately, people who don’t support the views of non-scientists like Al Gore, Ellen Goodman, and Katie Couric don’t get much attention. Regardless, the article continued:

    “The best we can say right now is that the climate models are somewhat inconsistent with the evidence that we have for the last 50 years from continental Antarctica.

    “We’re looking for a small signal that represents the impact of human activity and it is hard to find it at the moment,” he said.

    Last year, Bromwich’s research group reported in the journal Science that Antarctic snowfall hadn’t increased in the last 50 years. “What we see now is that the temperature regime is broadly similar to what we saw before with snowfall. In the last decade or so, both have gone down,” he said.

    Don’t expect to hear or read anything further about Bromwich or his research, for this entire “debate” has become a ridiculous joke as the left and their media minions hide all opposing views from the public.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Maybe they could also mention him saying:

    "It isn’t surprising that these models are not doing as well in these remote parts of the world. These are global models and shouldn’t be expected to be equally exact for all locations"

    From http://www.physorg.com/news90782778.html

    It's not an opposing view, neither is this guy a skeptic of global warming, but no doubt he will get added to that list anyway..

    The person I quoted was the scientist, Bromwich, who did this study, and not the author of the article.

    Im sure the scientist who did this study knows does know how this plays. The author of the article, less likely.
