It seems that methane hasn't been behaving as the climate models suggest. Hmmm ... another problem for the alarmists who believe that the world is about to burn up. After they figure out methane, maybe they can get to work explaining why there's been no increase in temperature over the last decade--yet even as the temperature stabilizes global warming is supposedly causing all sorts of dastardedly climate disasters around the world. Something here does not compute. Before jumping off the policy roof and ruining the economy, maybe we should be sure that catastrophic climate change looms. Observes Rick Hodgin of Trendwatch::
One thing does seem very clear, however; science is only beginning to get a handle on the big picture of global warming. Findings like these tell us it's too early to know for sure if man's impact is affecting things at the political cry of "alarming rates." We may simply be going through another natural cycle of warmer and colder times - one that's been observed through a scientific analysis of the Earth to be naturally occurring for hundreds of thousands of years.
