After some finagling with the troublesome figures, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has finally gotten what it wanted, declaring that the “global pause” never happened and that “climate change” continues. Consider me a skeptic still, but even if the “scientific consensus” holds that man-caused-global warming is real, so what? The revised measured increase in global temperatures still falls far short of the vaunted computer models and in fact would have a negligible impact on the climate and on human life.
And let’s face it: If global warming caused the devastation currently happening in Syria and Iraq by ISIS, or the chaos and death that a nuclear weapon in the hands of the Iranian regime would cause, then I’d be worried. I find it insane that our president is doing little or nothing with these ongoing crises–even facilitating them–but still acts as if a minuscule increase in the planet’s tempreatures is the issue of our time.
