Have you heard much in the liberal press about the recent new study from scientists at Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Meteorology that clearly showed that man-made aerosols had a much smaller cooling effect on the atmosphere during the 20th Century than was previously thought. I haven’t seen much in the news about that either. I wonder why?
It was ironic that this latest blow to the supposed scientific consensus on Man-Made Global Warming came on the same week that President Obama prepared a new set of handcuffs for America’s economy, this time in the way of His Majesty declaring a new set of greenhouse-gas emission cuts. His Majesty ruled by kingly edict that the US would cut emissions by once again ignoring the Constitutionally-required congressional authority concerning such international agreements.
When White House Spokesman Josh Earnest was asked about this lack of following our Constitutional process in getting approval from Congress, he stated that the White House didn’t think Congress members that didn’t believe in Man-Made Global Warming should get to vote on the issue. That’s downright scary. A U.S. presidential administration has the gall to say that Congress won’t even get to vote on an issue unless they agree with the president? I call him “His Majesty” in jest but I continue to wonder if he sees such talk as acknowledgement of a fact.
The Max Planck study indicates “that aerosol radiative forcing is less negative and more certain than is commonly believed.” In more plain English, this means that aerosols are offsetting less global warming than was previously thought. This means carbon dioxide must be causing less warming that what climate models predict. Since those climate models have been consistently wrong, this study, conducted by an extremely well-respected scientific institution, adds to the science against this line of thought and is a major blow against those who believe in the religion of Man-Made Global Warming.
The liberal media can continue to try to hide the truth about the lack of consensus regarding Man-Made Global Warming but their efforts have already largely failed. More and more Americans reject the liberal reporting on Climate Change. Let’s hope the courts tie up President Obama’s attempts at forcing his Global Warming religion down our throats for the remainder of his time in office.
