This is an interesting article from Science Daily reporting on some research by the University of Southampton. The summary reads like a précis of any other warmist report, talking of;
“The change to the new set of climatic conditions … likely to bring drier summers in Britain and Ireland … accelerated sea-level rise along the northeast coast of the United States … drought in the developing countries of the Sahel region.”
But reading the more detailed article below the summary, there’s an interesting line;
“Since this new climatic phase could be half a degree cooler, it may well offer a brief reprise from the rise of global temperatures, as well as resulting in fewer hurricanes hitting the United States.”
Pardon me? There is some global COOLING coming? But how can this be when that evil CO2 is still rising at unstoppable rates? Could it be that CO2 isn’t actually contributing to global warming after all?
It’s clear from this report that there are at least other factors in play – major ones – that can off-set the ‘destructive power of CO2’.
I’ll keep an eye out to see if this report makes the national papers, or the BBC. Anyone want a bet that it doesn’t?
