Not waiting for the warming

Although the planet has not warmed up a single fraction of a degree since 1998, the Church of Climatology supporters still keep screaming from the top of the mountains Henny Penny style.

The latest joke is to blame shark attacks. Yes you read that correctly.

[...] Some experts suggest that an abundance of seals has attracted high numbers of sharks, while others believe that overfishing has hit their food chain. 'I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it's a convenient excuse,' Burgess said. Another contributory factor to the location of shark attacks could be global warming and rising sea temperatures. 'You'll find that some species will begin to appear in places they didn't in the past with some regularity,' he said. [...] (emphasis mine)

I guess they did not get the memo.
[...] Researchers studying long-term changes in sea temperatures said they now expect a "lull" for up to a decade while natural variations in climate cancel out the increases caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions. The average temperature of the sea around Europe and North America is expected to cool slightly over the decade while the tropical Pacific remains unchanged.

This would mean that the 0.3°C global average temperature rise which has been predicted for the next decade by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change may not happen, according to the paper published in the scientific journal Nature. [...]

Now seeing this new revelation is based on a computer model. I won't put any credence in it either. That would be a little hypocritical of me as I sure as hell don't put any credence in any other computer model that tries to predict our climate.

If it was Father Nature I could understand that some computer program could figure it all out. This is Mother Nature people, and there is a damn good reason for that. She is a lot more complicated, and we will never truly understand all the complexities involved.
