Global warming mystery
For the first time, a senior scientist working with the U.N. report on climate change has admitted that there is no real global warming in current time. The scientist behind the so-called "climate-gate" e-mail scandal admitted that there is no statistically significant global warming since 1995. The scientist believe that the time between 800 and 1300 A.D. could actually had been warmer than present temperatures. Such a news will be a blow to global warming advocates and it makes a easy for a layman not to believe in global warming. A recent BBC poll found that there is already a decrease in global warming believers. The Populus poll of 1,001 adults found 25% did not think global warming was happening, an increase of 10% since a similar poll was conducted in November. The pdf version of the poll report can be downloaded here. Believe or not earth has warmed-up as compared to a near past. But it has warmed and cooled a number of times (at least twice) in the past 1000 years. It might be an interesting read to understand: "If global warming real why is it cold?"
