The Travesty continues. Scientists struggling. Journalists Juggling.

According to Kevin Trenberth on  October 12, 2009

The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t

Climate scientists struggle to explain warming slowdown
Tue, Apr 16

OSLO (Reuters) - Scientists are struggling to explain a slowdown in climate change that has exposed gaps in their understanding and defies a rise in global greenhouse gas emissions. 
Often focused on century-long trends, most climate models failed to predict that the temperature rise would slow, starting around 2000. Scientists are now intent on figuring out the causes and determining whether the respite will be brief or a more lasting phenomenon. 
Getting this right is essential for the short and long-term planning of governments and businesses ranging from energy to construction, from agriculture to insurance. Many scientists say they expect a revival of warming in coming years.
Getting it right is essential for the short and long-term planning of governments and businesses? The struggling scientists should realise that the CO2-caused dangerous runaway global warming hypothesis has been busted and the struggling scientists need to look for different cause(s).

The Main Stream Media who have also been pushing the Alarmist line are also struggling. As Lawrence Solomon notes in the Financial Post: (link)

Reuters joins list of global warming skeptics

Reuters and its environmental correspondent, Alister Doyle, join the list of newly skeptical global warming journalists, with an article today entitled “Climate scientists struggle to explain warming slowdown.” 
Doyle joins other prestigious journalists at The Economist and the London Telegraph who this year for the first time have begun to fundamentally question the supposedly rock-solid science upon which governments have been attempting to reshape society.
