New Scientist admits world cooling

You can almost hear the heads popping… New Scientist, that oh-so-alarmist of publications, is having to face the inconvenient truth at last:
Forecasts of climate change are about to go seriously out of kilter. One of the world's top climate modellers said Thursday we could be about to enter "one or even two decades during which temperatures cool.

"People will say this is global warming disappearing," he told more than 1500 of the world's top climate scientists gathering in Geneva at the UN's World Climate Conference.

"I am not one of the sceptics," insisted Mojib Latif of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at Kiel University, Germany. "However, we have to ask the nasty questions ourselves or other people will do it."
…
Another favourite climate nostrum was upturned when [Vicky] Pope [of the UK Met Office] warned that the dramatic Arctic ice loss in recent summers was partly a product of natural cycles rather than global warming. Preliminary reports suggest there has been much less melting this year than in 2007 or 2008.

  • I live in hope that the 'light at the end of the tunnel' may not be a train after all.!!

  • Wow, you really misinterpreted that piece... the titel is "World could cool first, warm later". It doesn't say (what you are implying) that global warming isn't happening, it confirms global warming but says ocean currents will cool the planet before climate change will go into effect..

  • I don't think so... There is evidence in that piece that NS is having to look at other effects on the climate, not just CO2. If the planet cools for the next 20 years, but CO2 continues rising (as we know it will), what does that say about the effect of CO2 on the climate? Clearly other (natural) drivers are more significant than atmospheric CO2, especially the tiny anthropogenic component of that.

    For NS to admit that natural forces may be more powerful than anthropogenic ones is a big step forward.
