World's Climate Could
Cool First, Warm Later

by Fred Pearce - September 4th, 2009 - New Scientist

Forecasts of climate change are about to go seriously out of kilter. One of the world's top climate modellers said Thursday we could be about to enter "one or even two decades during which temperatures cool.

"People will say this is global warming disappearing," he told more than 1500 of the world's top climate scientists gathering in Geneva at the UN's
World Climate Conference. "I am not one of the sceptics," insisted Mojib Latif of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at Kiel University, Germany.

This web site looks like one of the global warming support networks. It is curious how the coverage is so slanted. However the essence of the article would make anyone with a degree of cynicism to doubt global warming is anything but a religion. It admits that there is bias in many of the global warming models that has resulted in them failing to predict climate accurately. They are sorry about the bias and promise to do better in the future. The writer insists though that despite their short term predictions not being accurate there is no reason to doubt their predictions of 20 years from now.

Therefore even if the weather cools for the next 20 years, in total opposition to everything they have said up until now, you can't give up the faith that global warming is real. They just need a little longer for it to show up. Honest. Trust them. 90% of all the scientists in the world, or at least 90% of the scientists they know, or rather at least 90% of all the ones they know and like... uh... may be it is just 90% of those scientists who they know and like and who also come to these United Nations conferences on global warming... agree with them.
