This cold water poured on Global Warming…

…is not the product of climate deniers. No doubt they will soon trumpet it, however.

My Buddy sent this to me and it is very interesting.

“Nature is about to carry out a very interesting experiment,” he said. “Ten or 15 years from now, we will be able to determine much better whether the warming of the late 20th Century really was caused by man-made CO2, or by natural variability.”

Meanwhile, since the end of last year, world temperatures have fallen by more than half a degree, as the cold “La Nina” effect has re-emerged in the South Pacific.

If it should turn out over the next couple decades to be borne out it doesn’t necessarily undermine the theory that the release of carbon by humans has caused/is causing warming. It makes me wonder if humans are incredibly lucky and are about to be given a reprieve in our search for alternate forms of energy.

God knows the Chinese aren’t about to give up burning coal any time soon. Not if their leaders want to avoid another revolution.
