"Scientist" reports NO GLOBAL WARMING, then blames global warming
File this under, STUFF YOU CAN'T MAKE UP! These "scientists" who make their livings advancing the idiotic notion of man-made global warming will say absolutely anything with a straight face as long as it's consistent with current environmental dogma...
April 30 (Bloomberg) -- Parts of North America and Europe may cool naturally over the next decade, as shifting ocean currents temporarily blunt the global-warming effect caused by mankind, Germany's Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences said.
Average temperatures in areas such as California and France may drop over the next 10 years, influenced by colder flows in the North Atlantic, said a report today by the institution based in Kiel, Germany. Temperatures worldwide may stabilize in the period.
The study was based on sea-surface temperatures of currents that move heat around the world, and vary from decade to decade. This regional cooling effect may temporarily neutralize the long- term warming phenomenon caused by heat-trapping greenhouse gases building up around the earth, said Richard Wood, a research scientist at the Met Office Hadley Centre, a U.K. provider of environmental and weather-related services.
Then here's the funny part, and by funny I mean stupid...
``Those natural climate variations could be stronger than the global-warming trend over the next 10-year period,'' Wood said in an interview. ``Without knowing that, you might erroneously think there's no global warming going on.''
So this retard states clearly that there is no global warming that's going to take place over the next decade, but then in the same sentence, states that global warming still exists. Amazing!
