So it seems that practically every global warming conference keeps having to be cancelled due to snow but still the environmental alarmists persist that the world is heating up faster than a hot-pocket in a microwave.

And the fact that the world is not actually getting warmer, I thought, could one day pose a serious problem to their theories so I was wondering what they’d eventually say to explain away the actual real life static temperatures. But I must admit I didn’t see this one coming. Ready for it? Here it is.

Global warming is sleeping. Shhh.

Discovery is reporting:

For those who have endured this winter’s frigid temperatures and today’s heavy snowstorm in the Northeast, the concept of global warming may seem, well, almost wishful.

But climate is known to be variable — a cold winter, or a few strung together doesn’t mean the planet is cooling. Still, according to a new study, global warming may have hit a speed bump and could go into hiding for decades.

Earth’s climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat.

So it’s hiding. Global warming is all curled up and snoring away in hibernation but you are hereby warned to please not disturb it. Because when it wakes up…boy howdy will it be fierce.

Swanson thinks the trend could continue for up to 30 years. But he warned that it’s just a hiccup, and that humans’ penchant for spewing greenhouse gases will certainly come back to haunt us.

“When the climate kicks back out of this state, we’ll have explosive warming,” Swanson said. “Thirty years of greenhouse gas radiative forcing will still be there and then bang, the warming will return and be very aggressive.”

So it won’t be just plain old global warming it’ll be “EXPLOSIVE warming!” So you better listen to them now. Because the threat sounds really bad.

So it’ll be like a sequel to a really sucky movie where in the original the bad guy made a lot of threats about destroying the world but instead opted for a nap. But in the sequel he returns…Explosively. And this time he really means it.
