Lord Rees, one of “Britain’s most senior scientists”, has suggested that time is running out on earth’s climate, and that unless we take drastic measures like geoengineering, global warming will lead us into ’dangerous territory’ and ’panic’.
It would seem that the only one panicking is Lord Rees. His alarmist statements fly in the face of current mainstream theories that if man made global warming exists at all, it’s ’on pause’, and we’re in a period of cooling (despite rising CO2 levels and predictions to the contrary). Amusingly, this research is found in the very same online publication,From The Telegraph: “Global warming? No, actually we’re cooling, claim scientists”
Further, Lord Rees’ pessimism about reducing carbon dioxide emissions is growing irrelevant, as more research is coming out suggesting that climate change may not be caused by carbon dioxide levels at all.Among the Geo-engineering plans on Rees’s agenda include launching mirrors into space, triggering algal blooms in the oceans and seeding clouds in the upper layer of the Earth’s atmosphere to bounce some of the sun’s energy back into the stratosphere.

*Editorial Warning* I am not a climate scientist, I do not re-publish this article as an absolute truth, I just find that the data on this subject is very inconclusive. There are both sides to this debate that manipulate their figures to prove their views. There is no doubt Human civilization has had an effect on the environment, and is most likely fucking a lot of it up. Not only through carbon emmisions but also Geoengineering programs. However the push of the story of global warming has been supported by institutions like the elitist Club of Rome and many other institutions that would love to make money and steal peoples freedom off of global warming, and put in place a universal “carbon tax”
The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.
The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.
This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.
This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.
Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.
