ManBearPig update

Darn you, empirical evidence!  Watts Up With That: "Global Temperature Update – Still no global warming for 17 years 10 months."

The wise consensus said...

Of all the things I've witnessed of a societal nature, I think the willingness by so many to believe in man-caused global warming amazes me the most. That's something I've always felt, well before the revelations of various shenanigans like data doctoring and internal witch hunts by the "scientific" community.

This alone should be a clincher for anyone: From the 70's to early 80's, the Scientific Consensus was that humans were causing cooling and a new Ice Age. Then a warming trend of a few years hit, and the consensus changed to the exact polar opposite. If that wasn't a hint that they didn't have a clue, what could be?

Did people laugh it off? Disappointingly, no. They said,"Ok, we were supposed to believe this [pointing east], but now [pivoting quickly to point west] we're supposed to believe this?"

"Ok, please just continue to keep us up to date on what we're supposed to believe."

And, interestingly, coincident with the recent cooling/lack of warming, have you noticed that the enforcers of the consensus have begun slyly substituting the term "climate change" where they formerly used the term "global warming"? Could they be limbering themselves up for another eventual flip-flop? Would the people accept another 180 degree pivot without laughing? Sadly, I think they would. The frightening alternative would be to think for themselves.
