Global Warming or Global Hoax?

Professor Phil Jones, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that for the past 15 years there has been no "statistically significant" global warming.

Jones told the BBC that the recent warming trend that began in 1975 is not at all different than two other planetary warming phases since 1850, that there has been no statistically significant warming since 1995, and that it is possible the Medieval Warm Period was indeed a global phenomenon thereby making the temperatures seen in the latter part of the 20th century by no means unprecedented. He also said that the cooling trend since 2002 is also not statistically significant.

Given his core position in what global warming alarmists are now forced to refer to as "climage change" (it's hard to argue for global warming when everyone is freezing), you have to wonder when the whole scam will just fall apart. Maybe it's time for those environmental litigation groups to get sued themselves, for using false science to push their agendas. That would be after we all get done shoveling ourselves out of the snow.

1) global warming = warming of the upper atmosphere which leads to global climate change
2) the previous "warming periods" did not lead to polar ice melt. Just for starters.

Nice try.

1. I didn't make that up - it wasn't a "try" on my part. The reversal on global warming trends was made by THE central scientist on global warming.

2. All "warming periods" are not equal. For instance, the one around year 1000 melted the polar ice cap. Of course, that little warming period led to a mini-ice age.

well I guess I'm just hoping that it turn out there's nothing to worry about. It just doesn't seem like the evidence is pointing that way. I guess the argument is whether the current warming is "human caused" and that seems likely. Whether it can be reversed or slowed at this point - is not clear. If it's not human caused, then there's nothing we can do about it. Even if it is - well, not likely. I'd still recommend selling property at or near sea level.
