The mainstream media is reporting the World Meteorological Organization’s assessment of global average temperatures asserting this decade is “the warmest on record,” without mentioning the WMO data actually documents the United States and Canada experienced cooler-than-average conditions since 2000.

The reports circulating from the U.N.’s climate summit in Copenhagen also don’t mention scientific climate data that suggest the globe has cooled in the last 10 years.

Data from the U.S. National Climate Data Center indicate temperatures in the U.S. have cooled over the last decade at a rate that projects to a decline of 7.3 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century.

Satellite data recorded at the University of Alabama in Huntsville show a global-cooling pattern over the last decade, contrary to the WMO observations reported in Copenhagen.

U.N. scientist predicts decade of global cooling

Global-warming alarmists were thrown into disarray last September at the U.N.’s world climate conference when a noted global-warming scientist presented data showing the earth has not warmed for nearly a decade and likely is entering “one or two decades during which temperatures cool.”

Mojib Latif, a climate physicist at the Liebniz Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Kiel in Germany and a lead author for the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, produced evidence predicting two decades of natural global cooling caused by cyclical changes in the atmosphere and ocean currents in the North Atlantic, known as the North Atlantic Oscillation and the Atlantic Meridional Oscillation.

Speaking at the World Meteorological Organization’s World Climate Conference 3 in Geneva, Switzerland, Latif produced slides that documented cooling temperatures that could be a 10- to 20-year phase into the future.

“I’m not one of the skeptics,” Latif has affirmed. “However, we have to ask the nasty questions ourselves or other people will do it.”

Global-warming ideologues disagree

After publishing the results, proponents of anthropogenic global warming put considerable pressure on Latif to assert his belief that the earth would be considerably warmer by 2050 unless global greenhouse-gas emissions are reduced.

Latif’s scientific paper published in Nature in May 2008 concludes: “Our results suggest that global surface temperature may not increase over the next decade, as natural climate variations in the North Atlantic and tropical Pacific temporarily offset the projected anthropogenic warming.”

While careful not to confront the conventional global-warming hypothesis directly, Latif and his colleagues stated clearly their forecast for global cooling: “Using this method, and by considering both internal natural climate variations and projected future anthropogenic forcing, we make the following forecast: Over the next decade, the current Atlantic meridional overturning circulation will weaken to its long-term mean; moreover, North Atlantic SST (sea surface temperature) and European and North Atlantic surface temperatures will cool slightly, whereas tropical Pacific SST will remain almost unchanged.”
