Everywhere we look globally we see very unstable climate changes happening quickly and without any warming.Now, I am assuming, from the tone of his comment, Mr Byatt didn't mean "without any warming" but really meant "without any warning." Am I correct there, anonymous? Was it a Freudian slip?
Mr Byatt goes on:
We cannot lower temperatures NOW.
Well, I doubt if we can ever have an effect on global temperatures - up or down. There is no proof that CO2 causes runaway warming. In fact the hypothesis has been falsified. (Link)
As to temperatures, it has been reported that 2010 was the hottest year ever. It was stupid for any scientist to make such a generalisation.
See 2010 the 'warmest' year? See also my post on doctored figures here. So, perhaps we are not doomed after all.
Note the downward temperature trend line (although 8 years is not a long enough sample)
Back to An's comment:
"An Antarctic ice shelf used as a runway is breaking away forcing an emergency airlift to close summer operations on the continent."Here is the temperature record for McMurdo and surrounding stations:
Essentially unchanging to cooling over the last 30 years; so what is causing the ice break is not warming; my bet is the ice has grown so far over the sea that it is losing its support; often when ice breaks off in the Antarctic it is not due to warming but ice growth. Note that the "warmest" summer temperature is greater than MINUS 14º. Long way to go before the ice melts.
