Year of Global Cooling

Here’s the truth about climate change: The nominal 0.7 degree Celsius increase in mean temperature over the last fifty-or-so years is, at best, inconclusive. The average volume and severity of hurricanes hasn’t gotten worse, despite predictions to the contrary. Much of the world has actually been trending cooler for the last few years. I’m a fan of being eco-friendly, and I’ll be among the first in line to buy an affordable fuel cell or electric car once a usable refueling infrastructure is in place, but the evidence points to Al Gore’s ‘inconvenient truth’—for which he ludicrously won a Nobel Peace Prize—being neither particularly inconvenient nor true.
