Climate deniers weep
Year proves climate sceptics wrong
It is a tie: Last year equalled 2005 as the warmest year on record, United States Government climate experts reported.
The average worldwide temperature was 0.62C above normal last year. That's the same as six years ago, the National Climatic Data Centre said.
Climate experts have become increasingly concerned about rising global temperatures over the past century. Most atmospheric scientists attribute the change to gases released into the air by industrial processes and petrol-burning engines.
In addition, the Global Historical Climatology Network said yesterday that last year was the wettest on record.
"The warmth this year reinforces the notion that we are seeing climate change," said David Easterling, chief of scientific services at the climatic data centre.
Nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000, he noted. The exception was 1998, which is the third warmest year on record going back to 1880.
Easterling said the data disproves unequivocally claims that climate warming ended in 2005.
Where my climate deniers at? where is Whaleoil? The casually fascist Cactus Kate? Kiwiblogh, that awful hate speech site No Minister? Where they at? The right wing blogosphere has been a massive echo chamber decrying any notion that man made pollution is heating the planet.
While the next UN report will be dramatically worse and the deniers are proven wrong again and again...
Experts claim 2006 climate report plagiarized
Poneke climate denial deserves contempt

Dominion Post editorial as shaky as Herald’s
Man made pollution is warming the planet dangerously towards a tipping point which could crash our collective civilization, of that there is zero doubt, yet a report put out by Greenpeace shows how one of the largest secret corporations in America, Koch Industries, is spending tens of millions on inaccurate and misleading information regarding climate change.
Koch Industries funded 20 organizations central to the global media echo chamber that was Climategate.
Yet despite the lies from the right and the right wing blogosphere in NZ, the science keeps showing us that global warming is happening and we can link now the terrible floods in Australia and Brazil and snow storms in Europe to global warming.
The right wing have managed to pollute the debate so that inaction is the only result, we need to wake up to the reality that the hyper consumer culture and the neoliberal financial structure it relied on is not just bankrupt literally, it is no longer sustainable beyond the constraints of the biosphere.
The time wasted by the right should not be forgotten as we move on with new laws to redirect the economy.
