Of course, this information sharply contradicts the hysterical global warming predictions we’ve been hearing from the left. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has estimated that the world’s average temperature would rise 0.2 degrees Celsius every decade. But if that were true, the world would be 0.3 degrees Celsius warmer than it is now. Every time we have a cold winter, we hear the tired warning that, “every year may not be warmer than the last, but every decade will be.” But the truth is that recent decades haven’t been warmer.
Global warming proponents are struggling to explain away the data. But what we are really learning is that climate is not predictable. We can’t measure air pollution, and that makes it hard to predict how or if pollution will affect the climate. Some climate scientists have suggested that the lack of warming is because excess greenhouse gases have ended up in the ocean instead of in the air, and some have suggested it’s because of natural climate cycles or solar cycles.
In other words, a lot of things control the climate. It’s just not possible to predict what the world’s temperature will be 50 years from now based on human activity. The idea that we can control the climate is ludicrous. We can’t even predict it with any accuracy.
