Global Warming? What Global Warming?

Steve is, I believe, cloistered as he plows through the IPCC’s latest report on the baleful consequences of “climate change.” Meanwhile, alarmist headlines are everywhere. But more sophisticated observers are asking, global warming? What global warming?

At Watts Up With That, Christopher Moncton adds the just-reported HadCRUT4 numbers to the dataset of datasets, which shows zero warming this millennium:

We are, of course, living in a relatively cool era. Global temperatures are colder now than they have been around 90% of the time since the end of the last Ice Age. That being the case, it is likely that it could get warmer in the future, for reasons having little or nothing to do with human activity. In that event, my prediction is that humans will thrive, as we have during every known historical warm era.
