Since just January 2007, the world has cooled so much that ALL the global warming over the past three decades has disappeared! This is confirmed by a plot of actual global average temperatures from the best available source, weather satellite data that shows there has been NO net global warming since the satellites were first launched in 1979.
Global warming and cooling have closely followed the phases of the PDO. The most significant pattern of PDO behavior is a shift between “warm” and “cool” phases that last 20 to 30 years. In 1905, the PDO shifted to its “warm” phase. In 1946, the PDO changed to its “cool” phase. In 1977, the PDO returned to its “warm” phase and produced the current warming. In 2007-8, the PDO turned cold again, so we can expect several decades of naturally-caused global cooling.
Some scientists are predicting that this cooling will be severe, and is a greater threat to humanity than global warming ever was.

Og stadig render Connie Hedegaard et al rundt som hovedløse høns og kagler om Kyoto og CO2! (For så vidt en hovedløs høne er i stand til at kagle. Måske blander jeg mine metaforer.) Måske skulle de prøve denne lille test. Ganske morsom og ikke særlig svær for de blot nogenlunde indviede.
