Global warmening in bits

It’s a one-off! It’s an aberration! It’s a conspiracy!

David Palmer over on the Sydney Anglicans forum provided the link, and summarizes:

The Climatic Research Institute at the University of East Anglia in conjunction with the UK Met Office Hadley Centre maintains a graph of the combined global and marine surface temperature recorded from 1850 on, annually adjusted. They have recently updated it for 2007 and state that 2007 was only the eight hottest year on record with a sizeable dip compared to the past few years. With another year like 2007 for 2008, the graph which we can now say has turned over will begin to show a clear downward trend.

Come now, David, just because the entire planet was a smidge cooler for one year doesn’t meant it will be cooler next year as well! I mean, it was hotter in parts—that’s got to count for something, doesn’t it?

Maybe we are just getting global warmening in bits, and the fact that we had a cold year is proof positive that things are going to get worse.

Meanwhile in other news, the evil anti-warmening propagandist Tim Blair nonetheless highlights the shocking news that the Loch Ness monster has probably been killed by global warmening.
