Global warming "hiatus" in recent years helps spur skepticism

There are 137 comments on the The Oregonian story from Apr 9, 2012, titled Global warming "hiatus" in recent years helps spur skepticism. In it, The Oregonian reports that:

For those who want more action on global warming, an inconvenient truth has arisen over the last decade: Annual average temperatures stayed relatively flat globally -- and dropped in the United States and Oregon -- despite mankind's growing release of greenhouse gases.

Not that I can see. No serious peer reviewed science has been shown to dispute AGW and so there can be no honest 'skeptics', only denialists.

Talk about denial. There has been enought serious peer reviewed science published that the media cannot use the term AGW in any form without risking being sued. There are now more serious peer reviewed science published that it now is more than the peer reviewed disproving AGW. Not to mention that some of what was published that supported it has been peer reviewed and found wanting, or just wrong. Like that published by the IPCC or Dr Mann, or the CRU.

The natural factors that influence climate were all negative over the past decade: temperatures should have gone down.
The fact that they went up at all shows that something is warming the planet.

The science says that it's CO2 causing the warming, that the world is still getting warmer, and that there will be new temperature records soon.

Deniers said sea level rise stopped in 2006, Arctic ice melt stopped in 2007, and global warming stopped in 2001.
Each of these claims has or will be shown to be false and based on nothing but wishful thinking.
Warming hasn't stopped.
Precisely.

That is because you are incapable of surprise or understanding anything new. i.e. You have your head so far up your posterior, all you can see is your tonsils. Unless you get tonsillitis, likely you will never believe that anything changes.

Why would they care?? Do you think they only drill or produce in the brief summer? The spring, fall, and winter can do enough damage. In fact, the more open stretches of water WITH a small amount of ice can do more damage than a frozen surface.

How "brief" is the Arctic summer, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

The point is, YSKT, global warming makes previously inaccessible areas accessible. I would imagine that an ice free sea is easier to drill in than one with shifting floes and floating bergs.

"WASHINGTON - Rising global temperatures will melt areas of the Arctic this century, making them more accessible for oil and natural gas drilling, a report prepared by the United States and seven other nations said on Monday.

It predicts that over the next 100 years, global warming could increase Arctic annual average temperatures 5 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit over land and by up to 13 degrees over water. Warmer temperatures could raise global sea levels by as much as 3 feet.

Such a change would threaten coastal cities, change growing patterns for vegetation and destroy habitats for some wildlife, but an energy-starved world would have new areas for oil and gas exploration, according to the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report.

The Arctic region, particularly offshore, has huge oil and gas reserves, mostly in Russia, Canada, Alaska, Greenland and Norway.

Warmer temperatures would make it easier to drill and ship oil from the Arctic, the report said. It did not attempt to quantify the costs of drilling and shipping Arctic oil and gas, or estimate how high energy prices would have to be to justify drilling in the region."

All this wailing and ignoring is useless.

Global warming is here and it is mean. It is worse than the consensus believes (it always is - surprise an ice shelf has disintegrated!) and it will devastate us not our great, great grandchildren.

It will not do them any good either.

If Glowbull warming devastates "us," there won't be many "great, great grandchildren" to worry.

NB: You guessed right about LessFactMoreHype, he's just an angry old man.
