Scientific evidence continues to build around the issue of global warming.  But unfortunately for the theory’s most ardent supporters, the evidence is mounting against man-made warming.  According to the Heartland Institute, a new study at Texas A&M  linked long-term changes in Pacific Ocean temperature to global surface temperatures, and found that with the Pacific cooling over the last eight years, global temperatures may well be likely to follow.  Another study in the Annals of Glaciology found a lengthening season of sea-ice in the Southern Ocean, contrary to what global warming models predict.  And with yet another study showing ice thickness in the Arctic Sea to be near constant, it looks like the mercury’s dropping on the hype over global warming.
