A global warming hoax is being claimed by critics as the oceans are said to be cooling the globe.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, global warming is not affected by soot and methane decreases.
In the past, global warming models showed a steady and increasing average for global temperatures. One part of the global warming models was the assumption that the oceans would also be warming which would then cause them to rise, threatening coastal cities and low lying land. But when measurements were actually made scientists were surprised to find out that while ocean levels were indeed rising the oceans were showing a temperature cooling trend.
Claims of a global warming hoax grew with the latest studies. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography wanted to know why global warming was slowing the past 15 years. They believe the “decrease in tropical Pacific sea surface temperature has lowered the global temperature by about 0.15 degrees Celsius compared to the 1990s.”
Other scientists are proposing other possible reasons for why the global warming models are wrong. It’s possible the quantities of ash from volcanoes might be higher than expected. Some believe the current 11 year solar cycle might be producing less heat than usual. Others are brave enough to raise the possibility that the global climate may be less sensitive than expected to increases levels of carbon dioxide. Despite criticism of global warming models, some scientists are still urging the public to accept anthropogenic global warming, which means global warming is human made.
Critics like Glenn Beck are claiming a global warming hoax, going so far as to fire employees that use energy efficient CFL light bulbs. Others point out the overall carbon footprint of a CFL bulb from manufacturing to disposal may actually have a higher negative impact on the environment than a regular bulb. Although, the same criticisms apparently can’t be applied to LED light bulbs which are quickly advancing in functionality and affordability.
David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation says the leaked climate report on global warming only helps critics:
“The absence of any significant change in the global annual average temperature over the past 16 years has become one of the most discussed topics in climate science. It has certainly focused the debate about the relative importance of greenhouse gas forcing of the climate versus natural variability.”
There is some good news when it comes to global warming models about superstorms like Hurricane Sandy which hit the New Jersey area. While they still believe global warming could create stronger storms they believe the jet stream curving that caused Sandy to target the area might be less of factor.
Do you think anthropogenic global warming is a hoax? If so, what do you believe caused the slow warming trend these past 100 years?
