As record cold temperatures, snow and ice storms continue to grip much of the nation, environmentalists and Democrats are once again beating the climate change drum with a renewed determination.
They love to cite a “97% consensus among scientists” that global warming is real. What they don't like talk about is that 95% of “global warming” models are wrong. In fact, former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says that climate models used by government agencies to create policies “have failed miserably.”
Spencer analyzed 90 climate models against surface temperature and satellite temperature data, and found that more than 95% of the models “have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979":
“I am growing weary of the variety of emotional, misleading, and policy-useless statements like ‘most warming since the 1950s is human caused’ or ‘97% of climate scientists agree humans are contributing to warming’, neither of which leads to the conclusion we need to substantially increase energy prices and freeze and starve more poor people to death for the greater good. Yet, that is the direction we are heading.”
To Dr. Spencer's point, not only is the science not settled, as Al Gore, Barack Obama, countless other Democrats and environmentalists claim; science is proving the opposite, of anything. Even the latest UN Report on Climate Change concedes that the planet has largely stopped warming over the past 15 years. Some scientists now predict that the “pause,” as environmentalists call it, may not end until the 2030s — if ever.

But, hey, deniers, the science is settled. In fact, if we don't stop climate change dead in its tracks in 2014, the world as we know it may very well come to an end. According to liberals, anyway.
Calling Al Gore...calling Al Gore...are you there? Mr. Gore...are you there? Mr. Gore?
