How Will Al Gore Explain This One?

I expect he’ll completely ignore it, but at some point global warming alarmists are going to have to address this problem with their theory that global warming is man made:

Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming

Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile — the list goes on and on.

No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

Again, more proof that global warming is a small part of a larger, cyclical environmental pattern that has nothing to do with man’s activities. When will these environmental wackos learn that we humans are completely insignificant, that the earth will do what it does naturally in spite of us? They look ridiculous. Trying to impact global warming by changing human behavior is just as ignorant as people centuries ago who tried to appease the Roman and Greek gods.

Update: My Wizbang colleague Cassy Fiano also has a piece that describes the massive trend of cooling that has gripped most of the globe.
