"Breaking with climate-change orthodoxy, Latif said the NAO was probably responsible for some of the strong warming seen around the globe in the past three decades. "But how much? The jury is still out," he told the conference. The NAO is now moving into a phase that will cool the planet."Hold on the NAO was responsible for some (I wonder how much) of the "global warming" and now will be responsible for negating all "global warming" to actually cool the planet for some years. If the NAO and AMO are that powerful might they actually be responsible for most or even all of the recent "global warming"? If so might the $billions being planned to spend (after first raising in taxation) on defeating "global warming" be pointless?
The New Scientist article also informs us that:
"Another favourite climate belief was overturned when Pope warned the conference that the dramatic Arctic ice loss in recent summers was partly a product of natural cycles rather than global warming. Preliminary reports suggest there has been much less melting this year than in 2007 or 2008."
Global Warming? Religion or scientific fact? Any sign of the BBC covering this scientific news or do they not cover "heresy"?
