BPSDB“WASHINGTON — Have you heard that the world is now cooling instead of warming? You may have seen some news reports on the Internet or heard about it from a provocative new book.
Only one problem: It’s not true, according to an analysis of the numbers done by several independent statisticians for The Associated Press (for full story).”
[UPDATE 22:30 EST The APS story has +100,000 search engine hits already – wonderful! Kudos to Seth Borenstein]
Some discussions of this story (honestly? I post a link, reload the search and find that yet another blog is covering it. No fear … this one can’t get too much coverage).
- Myth of Cooling Globe shattered by AP-sponsored ‘blind’ test
- Statisticians Confirm: No Global Cooling Despite Skeptic Spin
- Must-read AP story: Statisticians reject global cooling
- “Global cooling” scam debunked yet again
- High-quality AP journalism shatters myth of recent global cooling
Given that, I am satisfied to document (and recognize) that the issue has been well covered for a very long time, and the continued willful ignorance on the part of the climate change Deniers is deliberate disinformation, but then what part of the Denier Canon isn’t?

Of course, as discussed on this blog:
- the only way there could be no inter-annual variation is if the Earth were literally flat in every respect “Climate Deniers literally are “Flat Earthers””
- every peak year is followed by a slightly cooler period “Global Warming is over! once every decade or so …“
