A group of “global warming” scaremongering alarmists at America’s prestigious Yale University have been forced to cancel their planned “Global Divestment Day” this weekend—due to a continued bout of cold weather which will see temperatures at the institution’s town of New Haven, Connecticut, drop to -3° F (-19.4° C).
Snow covers houses in the US Northwest. Bitterly cold weather has marked the past four months in North America.
The alarmists, from an organization calling itself “Fossil Free Yale” (FFY) were forced to retreat indoors—where they were kept warm and alive by fossil fuel-powered heating, an irony not lost on the student Yale Daily News report on the cancellation.
“FFY Project Manager Mitch Barrows said the delay is due to unfavorable weather conditions and other logistical issues,” the Yale Daily News reported, adding that “Instead of holding its own Global Divestment Day event, on Saturday FFY will join another student group on campus, Rise Up Singing, a folk music sing-a-long group, in honor of the worldwide event.”
The “global warming scare”—based on a now long discredited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which claimed that the ice caps would melt and sea levels would rise—has suffered repeated reverses over the years, including the news that there has been a 29 percent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice in 2014, as opposed to the previous year—an area the equivalent of 533,000 square miles.
An unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, and the Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice for over a year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
Despite the original forecasts, major climate research centers now accept that there has been a “pause” in global warming since 1997.
The original predictions led to billions being invested in green measures to combat the effects of climate change—and increased fuel bills for consumers in Europe and America, who were “blamed” for the supposed “global warming” catastrophe which was supposed to have caused the eco-system to have collapsed a few years ago already.
According to a study issued in November 2014 by Paul C. “Chip” Knappenberger and Patrick J. Michaels, from the Center for the Study of Science, Cato Institute, a survey of all the available scientific papers on the topic published after 2010 found that “every single one of them acknowledged in some way that a hiatus, pause, or slowdown in global warming was occurring.
“In other words, we didn’t find a single paper on the topic that argued the rate of global warming has not slowed (or even stopped) in recent years. This is in direct opposition to the IPCC’s contention that global warming is accelerating, and supports arguments that the amount of warming that will occur over the remainder of the 21st century as a result of human fossil fuel usage will be at the low end of the IPCC projections, or even lower,” the study said.
Even more dramatically, when NASA released the data from their new Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) satellite in December 2014, the results were the exact opposite of what the global warming alarmists had said they would be.
Scientists had assumed that the CO2 increases in the atmosphere were emitted in the northern hemisphere largely due to industrialization and coal burning power plants.
They were hoping that their new satellite would bolster their theory but the data came back saying just the opposite—that the primary sources of CO2 on the planet are coming from below the equator.
The OCO-2 images show that CO2 increases in the atmosphere are largely a natural phenomenon and not man caused after all—and that the supposed biggest emitters of CO2 (Russia, Europe, India, China, and the United States) hardly register on the images.
