News coming out of the UK this week that there was a report put out by the met office in the UK that pours cold water on the notion of global warming as Al Gore likes to hype. (btw, where is Al Gore now…?)
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.
This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.
Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.

Now I'm not one to put money on whether we are or are not in a global warming trend. I don't even disagree that the temp may be higher than it was 100 years ago. What I disagree with is the doom and gloom idea that humans created this solely through all our fossil fuel use.
No doubt, poluting our atmosphere will add to the effect but in general I believe its part of the cycle of our earth. It warms up, it cools down.
Here it is simplified, the earth heats up, CO2 gases trap more of the heat in the earth – great… so earth warms up, more water evapourates, that creates more clouds, all the sudden the clouds are blocking the sun, the earth cools, less water is evapourated, clouds dissipate, earth starts getting sun again, earth heats up, more water evapourates… you see the cycle. See God made this earth and its full of checks and balances. Earth gets a little too warm? Great, other processes happen naturally and earth cools down. Earth gets too cool? Great, natural processes happen and allow it to heat up again.
I believe this sort of thing is what brought in the ice age and even a worldwide tropical age as well (peak global warming). I think it all just makes sense and I don't think its going to cause us to have to hop on a spaceship and populate Mars..
No… no doubt at all that we are polluting the atmosphere and we need to control that. We are to be good stewards of what God gives us. But all the hype about global warming is an utter scam and its used to make money one way or another. See humans are greedy by default. If they can use something to their advantage and gain more money they will. Global warming is a good excuse to sell books (Al Gore) and its a good excuse to impose carbon taxes on rich nations and its a good way to create a product void so that a business can fill it and to make t-shirts saying 'I survived global warming'.
The earth may be increasing and decreasing in temperature but if we look at a time span longer than a couple generations, we discover the earth has been doing this for thousands of years.
But it makes a good talking point, good political platform and it gives people a reason to protest stuff.
Again, we are to totally be mindful and respecting of our environment, agree 100%. But I won't be drinking the cool-aid in this case.
As a side note, if we were REALLY concerned about CO2 in the atmosphere and all this bad stuff, governments would go plant trees. Trees and leafy plants breath in CO2 and exhale oxygen. If this is such a problem, a carbon tax is a lame bandaid, people, governments and companies should be required to rehabilitate the amazon rainforest and money should be put into subsidies for ecofriendly living and education on how to conserve water and things such like.
Btw, go google how Israel made a desert into an Oasis by planting trees! THe latter rains came back due to it, miracle?! or just common sense that isn't so common anymore?
Forests also help to regular the earths temperature, the prevent erosion, they provide habit for insects, animals etc, they encourage variety of species, I could go on.
The answers are simple and the 'problem' is probably a lot less of a problem of man than we think and more of Gods creation doing what it does best, manage the humans on it who make messes 😛
