Note To My Conservative Friends: It's Important To Read All The Way Through Something

So my man, Noel Shepard of Newsbusters was in a pretty good mood this morning, thanks to a report that was released by the Research Council of Norwegian corroborating right wing assumptions about man made global warming being nothing but a big ole' practical joke:

It hasn't been a good few days for media members devoted to Al Gore's money-making scam called anthropogenic global warming.

Prior to Monday's revelation that heat from megacities is making for warmer winters on some parts of the planet, the Research Council of Norway issued a report last week titled "Global Warming Less Extreme Than Feared?":

"After Earth’s mean surface temperature climbed sharply through the 1990s, the increase has levelled off nearly completely at its 2000 level. Ocean warming also appears to have stabilised somewhat, despite the fact that CO2 emissions and other anthropogenic factors thought to contribute to global warming are still on the rise."

Noel, no doubt jizzed repeatedly to this news. Unfortunately, it seems he blew his load a bit early. Had he read a little bit further down:

Terje Berntsen [the project manager for this study] emphasises that his project’s findings must not be construed as an excuse for complacency in addressing human-induced global warming. The results do indicate, however, that it may be more within our reach to achieve global climate targets than previously thought.

Regardless, the fight cannot be won without implementing substantial climate measures within the next few years.


While the study claims the effects of global warming aren't as extreme, it doesn't disagree with the idea of man made global warming.

It's okay, Noel. At least Al Gore is still fat.

  1. Even if CLimate Change isn't as bad as we fear, carbon emissions pose another significant threat as carbon dioxide (CO2).

    When CO2 is dissolved in water, it increases the water acidity (lowers the pH -- 0 to 7 is acidic, 7 is neutral, 7 to 14 is alkaline).

    The more CO2 that's produced, the more it gets into the oceans. As acidity rises marine life suffers.

    This is going to be a big problem.
