Those darn scientists who got global warming wrong

Calling Al Gore.  It may be time to go shopping for some sweaters and gloves because global warming has "a cooling problem":

"Earth Gains A Record Amount Of Sea Ice In 2013 -- 'Earth has gained 19,000 Manhattans of sea ice since this date last year, the largest increase on record'"

It also appears that there was "a virus" in the global warming computers, according to reports in the British press:  

"A leaked copy of the world's most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong. 

The Mail on Sunday has obtained the final draft of a report to be published later this month by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the ultimate watchdog whose massive, six-yearly 'assessments' are accepted by environmentalists, politicians and experts as the gospel of climate science.  They are cited worldwide to justify swingeing fossil fuel taxes and subsidies for 'renewable' energy. 

Yet the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that the world has been warming at only just over half the rate claimed by the IPCC in its last assessment,  published in 2007.  

Back then, it said that the planet was warming at a rate of 0.2C every decade - a figure it claimed was in line with the forecasts made by computer climate models. 

But the new report says the true figure since 1951 has been only 0.12C per decade - a rate far below even the lowest computer prediction."  

In retrospect, the computer got it wrong!   Poor computer.   

To be honest, I'm not really very smart about computers but I do know one important concept:  Garbage in, garbage out! 

The computer did not decide to give us global warming predictions.  In fact, someone, probably a professor looking for some grants, programmed the computer to scare all of us. 

I guess that we won't see all of those polar bears floating from the North Pole to Miami Beach.  We may see Al Gore running away from the media instead.
