Climate Expert von Storch: Why Is Global Warming Stagnating?

Climate experts have long predicted that temperatures would rise in parallel with greenhouse gas emissions.

"He said that global warming exists: Based on the scientific evidence, I am convinced that we are facing anthropogenic climate change brought about by the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere."

And he should know by now that AGW is continuing, just moving most of the heat into deep ocean due to La_Nina instead of the air which is cooled by the upwelling of cool waters.

How does Free Republic get so many things so wrong?? I mean, the subject line has NOTHING to do with the actual statements he made. Most of which are quite correct, that public education is progressing and that individual weather events cannot be assigned to global warming, any more than the outcome of a dice throw can be derived by the odds of dice throws.

And you might be wrong. Not that it matters. Regional climate variabiltiy increases under AGW. It is NOT a matter of an 'even rise in temperature everywhere' but disruption of normal climate, colder, wetter, hotter, drier depending on where you live.

Like in Climate gate.
The only thing manipulated by climategate was the public trust in scientists. The emails were inspected by those who know the subject and found innocuous. YOU were gullible.

Since around the 2000's we have reached a "Plateau" in temperatures.
Untrue again. The temperature of the surface mass of the earth is still increasing. Meteorology data can only show the temperature of the AIR which is only 3% of that mass. And while, in the LONG terms it will represent the temperature of all masses, over ten or even twenty years, it can be held back (noise relative to the AGW signal) by things like LA-NiNa which has been active lately.

Oh, goody. You have discovered 'lag' due to thermal mass. Technically a 'phase shift' in the cyclical yearly temperature.

The lag also happens with global warming. The EQUILIBRIUM temperature is higher than the MEASURED temperature increase because it takes time to warm up all that material. We are due for at least another half degree of warming even if we stopped adding to it now.

P.S. your post is probably the worst ignorance I've seen on topix. Why not ask your children's science teacher for some help.

Nobody's ever mitigated climate change but billions have learned to adapt to changing climate.

Stop acting like idiots, grow up, stop looking for renewable and green energy... we're running out of patience. You've spent billions on green but that's only lined some crony pockets.

We want an energy policy that encourages the production and use of energy and fuel. Stop conservation, end CAFE and energy conservation regulations.

I am actually leaning at this being the coldest we have had in closer to 15 years we have had actually in New York.
At least that has been my perception & perhaps not the calculated scientific data.

Like in Climate gate.
Worldwide it's been cooler than the average of the years since 1996. November 2012 thru April 2013
