Peer-Reviewed Study: Coal use has helped save the world from dangerous global warming! ‘Boston University’s Robert Kaufmann and colleagues recently published a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences examining the causes of the recent dearth of ‘global warming.’ They concluded that it’s simply natural variability, augmented by increasing sulfate emissions from dramatically growing coal consumption by China.’

Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl: ‘Did Chinese coal cause the cooling since 1998?’ ‘It still shows how incredibly shaky contemporary would-be ‘mainstream’ opinions about climate drivers are’Motl: ‘Suddenly, an old Gentleman who watches Fox News is primary cause of a paper that explains away a whole decade of warming by a previously neglected mechanism…the idea that warming predictions failed because of the Chinese coal is just a random guess, one among hundreds of possible explanations…Why don’t those people honestly admit that they simply have no clue what was happening since 1998 and what will be happening before 2020, 2030, or 2100?’

Chinese coal blamed for global warming er… cooling: Curry ‘doesn’t find statistical theatrics convincing…There has been no increase in aerosols, either globally or over E. Asia, from 2000-2006′ – Prof. Judith Curry: ‘The political consequence of this study seems to be that the simplest solution to global warming is for the Chinese to burn more coal, which they intend to do anyway’

Man-made climate change evidence ‘hidden’ — ‘Cutting down on pollution from Chinese coal plants could actually make the earth become warmer’

Chinese coal caused temperature standstill of the past decade? ‘But ‘no trend in global aerosol depth between 2000 –2006′ New study’s claims do not add up: ‘In 2007 NASA stated that the aerosol burden had reduced, and even said that the ‘thinning’ of the atmosphere had given a push to global warming’

Climatologist challenges Chinese Coal stopped global warming claims: ‘It is wrong for Kaufmann et al. to attribute a reduced rate of global warming to Chinese sulfates’ — ‘China’s cooling sulfates do not readily make their way into the S. Hemisphere, yet, from 1999-2010, temperatures actually fell there, while they rose in the N. Hemisphere. This is exactly the opposite of what should have happened if sulfates are exerting a relative cooling primarily in the N. Hemisphere’
