Inconvenient Global Warming Fact: Avg Temp Hasn’t Risen in 18 Yrs

We don’t take on the issue of global warming often because of the fervent, religious-like reaction of those who believe in it. Heavy doses of truth coming too fast may cause an aneurysm. However, the issue of global warming is often at the very center of opposition to shale drilling because shale drilling extracts a fossil fuel (natural gas) and burning fossil fuels is, irrationally, verboten for the so-called climate-change faithful. The theory is that burning fossil fuels pumps more carbon into the atmosphere where it gets trapped creating a greenhouse effect, causing earth’s temperatures to rise. Nice theory–the problem is the facts don’t match the theory. The big problem for warmists is that the earth’s so-called average temperature (we still haven’t figured out where they stick the thermometer for that one) hasn’t warmed now for 18 years–which, according to the Global Warming Policy Forum, is creating a “crisis of credibility” for scientists who pedal the man-causes-global-warming theory…
