In a press release, Georgia Tech announced that stadium waves, similar to those seen and enjoyed by fans at football games, may provide a much better explanation for the “hiatus” or interruption in global temperature increases than those promoted elsewhere:
The stadium wave hypothesis provides a plausible explanation for the hiatus in warming and helps explain why [other] climate models did not predict this hiatus.
Further, the new hypothesis suggests how long the hiatus might last.
The climate-changers have been scrambling lately to explain away the fact that global temperatures haven’t changed since 1998. As Judith Curry, chief of Georgia Tech’s Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, wrote:
One of the most controversial issues emerging from the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report is the failure of global climate models to predict a hiatus in warming of global surface temperatures since 1998.
Indeed, the climate-changers have faced a series of daunting challenges to their theory of imminent total worldwide catastrophe unless something is done. Proofs that climate change is inevitable are increasingly coming under attack. As Rebecca Terrell pointed out at The New American, nearly every statement made by President Obama about climate change, as he announced an executive order to remediate climate change, was patently and provably false. Temperatures are not rising, as the president claimed, droughts are not increasing, incidents of wildfires are not accelerating, and his statement that permafrost thawing was “already affecting communities … across the nation” ignored the fact that permafrost exists only in Alaska and not in any of the other 48 states on the continent nor has it for thousands of years!
Professor Wieslaw Maslowski predicted five years ago that Arctic ice might disappear entirely by 2013, owing to global warming, but was forced to revise his prediction that it will disappear instead in 2016 “plus or minus three years.” In fact, not only has Arctic ice not disappeared, it has actually increased by a million square miles in just the last 12 months.
