2008 Was the Beginning of the End for the Global Warming Hoax

Back in July, I wrote “I suspect that we’ll look back on this year as the tipping point when the theory of anthropogenic global warming begins to go the way of the dodo.” Now that the year is almost over, it’s nice to see I’m not alone in that assessment.

Easily one of the most important stories of 2008 has been all the evidence suggesting that this may be looked back on as the year when there was a turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming. Just when politicians in Europe and America have been adopting the most costly and damaging measures politicians have ever proposed, to combat this supposed menace, the tide has turned in three significant respects.

First, all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. …

Secondly, 2008 was the year when any pretence that there was a “scientific consensus” in favour of man-made global warming collapsed. …

Thirdly, as banks collapsed and the global economy plunged into its worst recession for decades, harsh reality at last began to break in on those self-deluding dreams which have for so long possessed almost every politician in the western world. …

Additionally, as a couple different Sun cycles dropped to their minimums and then stuck there, more people considered that the giant ball of nuclear fire in the sky might have something to do with the temperature of the planet. Go figure.
