Scientists Baffled As Report Proves Global Warming Has Stopped

In a report released by Spiegel science journal, the admission that the world has been waiting for for a long time is now here: Global Warming has stopped! Spiegel journalist Axel Bojanowski writes “The word has been out for quite some time now that the climate is developing differently than predicted earlier”. He poses the question: “How many more years of stagnation are needed before scientists rethink their predictions of future warming?”

“15 years without warming are now behind us. The stagnation of global near-surface average temperatures shows that the uncertainties in the climate prognoses are surprisingly large. The public is now waiting with suspense to see if the next UN IPCC report, due in September, is going to discuss the warming stop.” Axel Bojanowski

To some, this admission is stunning, but to others it’s a sigh of relief that brings hope to the fact that maybe our world is changing so much so that the same old lies that had been exposed over the past 10 years, are now being admitted to. It is going to be quite interesting to see how the governments and IPCC attempt to explain this one to the public, if they do at all.

What some of us may not know is most of what we were always told about global warming and global temperatures by the IPCC and the media were based on computer models that were not accurate in relation to actual temperatures, yet they continue to report these short-term trends as being correct. In a key 2007 report, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggested it was likely we would see a temperature increase of 3C, with 4.5C considered ‘likely’. However, recent research shows the true figure is much lower – between 1.5C and 2C.

For scientists, they are now left to continue to speculate why the warming has stopped. While some have made mention of the natural cycles that have been occurring observably over the past half a million years which explain the warming and cooling perfectly, it appears they will continue to ignore the data. You can read more about this here.

While some scientists are speculating that the oceans are holding the heat and hiding it somewhere, it is important to note that there have been no further signs of ocean warming since 2003. Although NASA has stated they have picked up ocean warming they have also stated “The uncertainties with the data are too great. We need to improve our measurements.” Spiegel also reports on some other possibilities including that ocean heat storage may be happening very deep within the oceans. But Doug Smith of the Met Office quotes: “This is very difficult to confirm“. Further, Jochem Marotzke of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI) states “Without intensifying the data measurement network, we are going to have to wait a long time for any proof“.

Some scientists have also made mention of the fact that there exists a possibility the stratosphere may have something to do with the global temperature ‘freeze’. According to Susan Solomon; “The stratosphere has gotten considerably drier, and so warming at the surface may have been reduced by a quarter.” If that isn’t enough Marotzke says,  “However, climate models do not illustrate stratospheric water vapour very well, the prognoses thus remain vague.”

The truth is, most of what scientists are bringing forth at this time as a possibility have all been addressed in a book written a year ago by a couple of scientists named Fritz Vahenholt and Dr. Sebastian Luning. After the release of the book one year ago, the media tore it apart claiming their theories were crude. It is interesting to see, now that this admission has been released, that their theories were all sound. Moreover, Lüning”s and Vahrenholt’s temperature model for the next 100 years so far has been dead on.

Quite possibly one of the most fascinating remarks Bojanowski makes in his article is “The numerous possible explanations do show just how imprecisely climate is understood.” A man by the name of Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in an ‘Inconvenient Truth.’ Regardless of the fact that hundreds of scientists had the guts to prove him wrong at the time, he still was crowned king due to media manipulation. Now we have this most recent piece of information confirming what many have been saying was obvious over the past 10 years, will the media and government still be able to pull their old tricks?

Our climate is changing, there is no denying that. But do we fully understand what’s happening with global warming? It doesn’t seem to be the case. The scientific community does agree pretty much across the board that climate change is upon us, but the entire scope of what’s taking place is unclear and the giant “factual” claims being made are not entirely what they seem, on both sides.

    So if the planet is not warming up do we get a rebate on the hundreds of green taxes ? and what of billions made by corporations with their green tax ducts ?
    We live on a planet with changing weather cycles SO WHY DO WE HAVE TO CONNED OUT OF MONEY BY THE GOVERNMENT ?

    Dont get me wrong i recycle and crack sealed for life systems and a lot of other green stuff but i dont like people making billions out of it just because they need to fund yet another war for resources in another country !

  2. mergon

    Very difficult to confirm ,not an exact science ,i bet the computer sales people did not say any of that when they sold the government a multi million $£ computer system !

    Dodgy emails uncovered and then covered up again weather people retiring or leaving through health or i need to spend more time with my family !

    Late 60s American program started under the green save the planet lie deep sea buoys are placed into all of the worlds oceans to record flow and temperature at differing depths the buoys are packed with electronic equipment , who gets the information and what do they do with it is anyone,s guess,it was put forward at one stage that it helped predict the forecast for the stock markets so they could price the harvests accordingly
    for an up price or a down price ,but i think it had more to do with the military applications than anything else !

  3. mergon

    The planet has gone through natural cycles before ranging from warming up to freezing right down ,as i understand it ice core samples are taken at the poles and anylized and that was used as evidence but the information was only as good as the length of the core and was not until recently that a proper deep core rig was used and the initial results concluded that the planet went through some extreme cycles over millions of years .

    Then we have the cycles of the sun and mass corona ejections 2013 to 2015 will be the last of of the hot weather pattens for a while as the maximum will be past its cycle by 2015 .

    But if you are a politician and have the forecasts for the world situations regarding market trends and technology say for 30 years into the future you could come up with something like planet warming /global warming and then dream up a multi trillion scheme for vehicles to be fitted with sensors to control emissions
    while they are at it they can change the way engines and systems are designed we used have long stroke slow revving engines now we have short stroke screamers with the end goal being that there is nothing a person can do except check the oil if they can find it under under all of that plastic .
    the whole thing has changed from timing chains to rubber belts from tappets you could adjust to valve gear you cant ,remote water pumps driven from a fan belt to a pump driven by a rubber cam belt ,fuel systems that can only handle one grade of fuel or you have to be a computer tech to make any changes ,in a world of shrinking resources why do we have use sealed for life systems and throw a pump or a drive shaft when it could have a grease nipple fitted ? track rod ends , top and bottom joints, wheel bearings ect ect .

    One thing never discussed is the fact that a lead free engine generates considerable more heat than a leaded fuel engine ,cat converters store and amplify the heat as the gases pass through them so if you times the amount generated by a lead free engine the millions of vehicles on the planet it no wonder it heating up ,
    also if an oxygen sensor fails the excess fuel is burnt up in the cat converter causing even more heat output !

    Truth is a mix of long stroke engines with some of todays technology we could have clean engines that do a lot to the gallon ,saving the fuel and less maintenance because it would not be tearing its self to bits at 8000 plus rpm , but there is no money init for governments with lost fuel revenues and the car makers like to see the car in the shop so they can make tons of money !

    too many intelligent trying to figure out a natural occurrence…only God knows – is the answer

  5. K. R. Grady

    You are relating information in your article from the magazine “Spiegel” (or De Spiegel) . . . it is misleading for you to write “Spiegel science journal” . . . it is a magazine . . . it is not a science journal (which most people would think to be a peer reviewed, academic journal) . . .

  6. Lisle

    There could be a number of reasons for this apparent stoppage of climate change e.g melting of ice causing a slowing down of the thermohaline circulation. Global climate can also be affected by albedo effect from the release of particles from volcanoes for example mount pinatubo erupted in 1991 and reduced the northern hemispheres average temperature by 0.6C.
    The earth is a sensitive place and there are many aspects to consider not just surface temperature

  7. Just by looking at that graph you can see that global warming has NOT stopped. The graph clearly shows that warming continues (black line) and that it is still within predictions (red fields). Even if it would go slightly off predictions, our climate is still warming.

    • Riley

      You skipped the entire article, giddily I’m sure, to write that. What does that chart say about the predictions? Are they valuable, considering their inaccuracies? If it is warming, is it doing so naturally, not catastrophically from human sources, as predicted by models?

      Forest for the trees.

  8. Damien

    You write generally well, but it would be easier to take you seriously if you didn’t spell the same names different ways and use non-words like “paradox”.

  9. The difference between prediction and reality is hardly going to reverse global warming phenomena, manmade and natural. We observe and experience extreme and disastrous weather, unprecedented in the historical records.There is no question about it, the question is how much worse will it get? No one knows.

  10. Global warming is Polar melting which takes heat from the air to change the frozen 0C water into liquid 0C water. (Latent heat)
    That means: colder air against hotter air = more extreme weather.
    Cold water instead of cold ice. Cold water is more mobile, can take in more heat quicker due to the heat transfer coefficient.

  11. There is an unpopular reply to to your question “What is it then” The bible speaks of a time called “the end of days” or as christians call it the “end times” Before Messiah returns to this earth , Old covenant and the new covenant peoples are to told that earth conditions will change for the worst. This will greatly intenify when the “mark of the antichrist” is introduced to the world.We will see earth quacks on a level never seen in all the earth history.God commands all men men everywher to repent and receive Christ into there lives, for he is the only God given means of eternal salvation. But most people scoff at God and say “get lost” I want to live as i please. So God say OK then. The sad thing is that God offers the the most important thing they could ever have and that is a personal relationship with himself and a life with God once their lives end. The rejecters also have an eternal destony but it is in eternal torment

    • bdub

      Blah blah blah. This is SCIENCE here. Go somewhere else with your storytelling.

  12. MJR

    This may be an over-simplistic statement, but looking at the graph and the overall trend from 1980-2000 was going up. It would be logical that scientists would assume this would continue, though it couldn’t be certain. I don’t think global warming was a lie, I think the problem is we cannot accurately predict many factors that control the climate. I have a feeling many people want to call it a lie because its been so widely accepted as the truth…they would’ve been the people 15 years ago calling global warming deniers idiots. Just an opinion, that may not be true of all of them. Anyway, I think many may be afraid to admit global warming has stopped or plateaued out of fear of undoing all the efforts being made to make the environment better. In my opinion, that would be a plausible reason for a scientist to ignore or at least question telling them it is not happening. I don’t know, I need to research this more. I haven’t explored climate change really since probably ten years ago, so I’m not going to tell you you’re article is false or misleading, since I don’t know that it is. Or isn’t. Thanks for giving me something to think about and research.

  13. Earth

    Damn, Joe! For someone who claims to have been studying climate for the last 5 years, you sure know nothing about it! Stop lying to people!

    • I have looked into both sides of the global warming debate. TO be clear I agree with climate change.. i.e. the climate is changing. But when it comes to global warming and its theories linked with C02, I have come to the conclusion, in my opinion you could say, that it is false. I have researched well beyond the political mainstream science which most blindly believe yet don’t quite realize it’s unproven theory. Regardless of thousands of scientists proving those theories wrong, they maintain today. There is another big belief going around which is propped up by a great deal of political statements in that most scientists agree that global warming is real, a thorough look into the matter allows you to realize that it is actually much less who believe in global warming simply because the evidence and climate do not suggest it is accurate. This is going to sound backwards only because we have been heavily fed political jargon about how its a land slide when it truly is not. Last note, I am not trying to protect oil companies, fossile fuels or anything of that nature. I feel those are destructive technologies and I kno we have free, limitless technologies that could easily replace them. My main concern is more so helping to bring light to any matter regardless of what it is. To give you an indication of where global warming is at these days in the energy and scientific community. For the last three years I have attended an energy symposium here in Ontario with industry leaders from around Canada. This year was the very first year the topic of words “global warming” did not come up in any conversation over the entire 8 hours. We are talking about the people right in the industry, yet no mention of global warming.


  14. Jct; Stupid scientists may remain baffled that global warming has stopped but some of us remember how the climategate fraudsters cooked the books to hide the decline in temperature. These are merely scientists who haven’t kept up on the latest data exhibiting their ignorance for all the world to see. Can’t figure out why they were wrong and haven’t heard yet that they were lied to. They shouldn’t even be called scientists. Makes us real ones look bad.

    • and you’re an expert on the scientific process? or do you get your scientific analysis from places like principia? oh dear, I hope not!

  15. ???

    So that should mean they should stop their F’n Chem-trails then RIGHT?

  16. CJ

    does this mean they’re going to stop carbon emmission taxes on the everyday citizen? hell no! moneymoneymoneymoney!

  17. I have come to the conclusion that we all have a little blame global warming and its consequences and guilt even more politicians who do not slow down.

  18. yourqueen

    Sheesh, the onion used to be funny. This was both terribly boring and incredibly stupid. How many of you elitist kettles are actually subscribing to this nonsense?

    Date: 28/04/13 The Voice of Russia
    ‘We could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years. The period of low solar activity could start in 2030-2040.’

    Global warming which has been the subject of so many discussions in recent years, may give way to global cooling. According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless. Some experts warn that a change in the climate may affect the ambitious projects for the exploration of the Arctic that have been launched by many countries.

    Just recently, experts said that the Arctic ice cover was becoming thinner while journalists warned that the oncoming global warming would make it possible to grow oranges in the north of Siberia. Now, they say a cold spell will set in. Apparently, this will not occur overnight, Yuri Nagovitsyn of the Pulkovo Observatory, says.

    “Journalists say the entire process is very simple: once solar activity declines, the temperature drops. But besides solar activity, the climate is influenced by other factors, including the lithosphere, the atmosphere, the ocean, the glaciers. The share of solar activity in climate change is only 20%. This means that sun’s activity could trigger certain changes whereas the actual climate changing process takes place on the Earth”.

    Solar activity follows different cycles, including an 11-year cycle, a 90-year cycle and a 200-year cycle. Yuri Nagovitsyn comments.

    “Evidently, solar activity is on the decrease. The 11-year cycle doesn’t bring about considerable climate change – only 1-2%. The impact of the 200-year cycle is greater – up to 50%. In this respect, we could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years. The period of low solar activity could start in 2030-2040 but it won’t be as pervasive as in the late 17th century”.

    Even though pessimists say global cooling will hamper exploration of the Arctic, experts say it won’t. Climate change and the resulting increase in the thickness of the Arctic ice cover pose no obstacles to the extraction of oil and gas on the Arctic shelf. As oil and gas reserves of the Arctic sea shelf are estimated to be billions of tons, countries are demonstrating more interest in the development of the Arctic. Climate change will also have no impact on the Northern Sea Route, which makes it possible to cut trade routes between Europe, Asia and America. Professor Igor Davidenko comments.

    “The Northern Sea Route has never opened so early or closed so late over the past 30 years. Last year saw a cargo transit record – more than five million tons. The first Chinese icebreaker sailed along the Northern Sea Route in 2012. China plans it to handle up to 15% of its exports”.

    As Russia steps up efforts to upgrade its icebreaker fleet, new-generation icebreakers are set to arrive in the years to come. No climate changes will thus be able to impede an increase in shipping traffic via the Northern Sea Route.

    The weather is changing because of HAARP and geoengineering (the aerosal spraying of aluminum, barium, strontium and whatever poisons they want to spray on us) … they manipulate the weather because they (the Military Industrial Complex/Pentagon) are doing this to profit from crops which is big business on the stock market.

    • thats qa factor my dear. and it is human caused. there is also the larger picture of solar system warming which cant be blamed on us. Nor can it be denied away by the fools who think anything contrarian must be truth. somedays I pray for a good old 1900 influenza to visit.
