Global warming theory is dead, dead, dead

You can stick a fork in the theory that man is causing global warming it's toast, it's cooked, it's all over but the funeral.

Phil Jones, the scandal-plagued director of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, and the man at the very center of global warming hysteria, confessed to the BBC on Friday that there has been no "statistically-significant global warming" since 1995.

Yes, you read that right. The man most responsible for stirring up worldwide hysteria over catastrophic global warming is now admitting that the globe hasn't warmed significantly in 15 years.

Here is the exchange, according to the BBC's transcript of the interview:

"Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming?"

    "Yes, but only just. I also calculated the trend for the period 1995 to 2009. This trend (0.12C per decade) is positive, but not significant at the 95% significance level. The positive trend is quite close to the significance level. Achieving statistical significance in scientific terms is much more likely for longer periods, and much less likely for shorter periods."

Game over.

Further, although he denies that there has been "statistically significant global cooling" since January 2002, he admits that "the trend...is negative (0.12C per decade)." In other words, he admits the globe has in fact been cooling since 2002, and lamely claims only that this decline is not "statistically significant."

Here is the excerpt from the BBC transcript:

"C Do you agree that from January 2002 to the present there has been statistically significant global cooling?"

"No. This period is even shorter than 1995-2009. The trend this time is negative (-0.12C per decade), but this trend is not statistically significant." (emphasis mine)

Double game over.

Perhaps now we can end with all the foolishness about green energy and carbon caps that will only trap the world's poor in grinding poverty and do even further damage to the world economy by driving up the cost of energy for everybody.

It's time to close the books on this sorry chapter of scientific fraud and send Al Gore home to Tennessee to luxuriate in his carbon-guzzling palace with instructions to leave the rest of us alone.
