Kook: The ChiComs Burning Coal Halted Global Warming, Cooled Us
I promised this global warming story. It’s from the French News Agency. (laughing) “China’s soaring coal consumption in the last decade held back global warming as sulfur emissions served as a coolant, according to a study that takes head-on a key argument of climate skeptics.”
Now, I would think this would prove that climate skeptics are right. Was not the burning of coal the worst thing we could do to create greenhouse gases that elevated the earth’s temperatures? Obama wanted to put the coal business out of business because it was the number one contributor to global warming, and now the planet hasn’t warmed in ten years, and so they’re saying China and its soaring coal consumption is the reason why.
“While 2005 and 2010 are tied as the hottest years on record,” that’s BS. I don’t even want to get distracted with that. “skeptics have charged that an absence of a steady rise from 1998 to 2008 disproves the view that people are heating up the planet through greenhouse gas emissions. Robert Kaufmann, a professor at Boston University, said he was motivated to conduct the study after a skeptic confronted him at a public forum, telling him he had seen on Fox News that temperatures had not risen over the decade.” This guy panics. He hears that somebody said on Fox News that the temperature haven’t gone up, so he had to go out and do a study.
