Global Stasis

As I've probably mentioned before, try as you might, you cannot find any significant plateaus or reversals in the global warming computer model (above) that's being used to scare the world. The problem with the graph is that there hasn't been any warming since 1998 -- and now, those whose paychecks come from global warming worries are saying we may not see any warming for the next 10 years or so because of ocean currents. So much has been invested in proposed global warming that when it doesn't occur, when it isn't even projected to occur, the warmers tell you, "Oh, it's coming, it's coming -- it may not be here now, it may not be here in 10 or 12 years, the world may not warm up for a 20 year span -- but our models are still relevant. Ignore the missing solar cycle, ignore the variability of ocean currents, ignore the actual temperature and look, look at how hot our computer says it's going to get in 2100!"

So, look at the graph again and find the year 1998, the year global warming peaked. There has been no warming since then and scientists are backing off of predictions of warming for the next ten years (at least until 2018). Raise your hand if you see a falling or flat line between 1998 and 2018 on the graph. If this doesn't convince you that the model is corrupted, that you're being sold a bill of goods, then nothing will.

And while we're at it, please remember that due to a Y2K data computation flaw, 1934, not 1998, was the hottest year of the last century... and where is that peak shown on the model? Why does the model show 1934 as half a degree lower than 1998 when it wasn't?
