The headline from the abstract:
Given the widely noted increase in the warming effects of rising greenhouse gas concentrations, it has been unclear why global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008.In the Climategate emails, Kevin Trenberth wrote that it was a travesty that there was no warming. Now we have it officially in a peer-reviewed paper with Michael Mann (
So, if there was no warming from 1998 to 2008, why, oh why is the Australian Government going ahead with a tax that will destroy the Australian Economy? Why are we going to have a tax on an innocent trace gas, colourless, non-polluting carbon dioxide?
Wake up Australia!
