Br-r-r! Where Did Global Warming Go?

by Jeff Jacoby - January 6th, 2008 - Boston Globe

THE STARK headline appeared just over a year ago. "2007 to be 'warmest on record,' " BBC News reported on Jan. 4, 2007. Citing experts in the British government's Meteorological Office, the story announced that "the world is likely to experience the warmest year on record in 2007," surpassing the all-time high reached in 1998.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the planetary hot flash: Much of the planet grew bitterly cold.

Since the basic premise that carbon dioxide and temparature are related is true, but in an inverse pattern to that which would support the global warming is caused by man school of thought, you would expect that at some point the proponents woud desist. Instead, they have ignored the science and created a "global warming theology" that insists they are right.

None of the compelling evidence they are wrong is accepted. They simply demean the character and intelligence of anyone who disagrees with them.
