@MichaelEMann I know it's futile & I shouldn't waste time on it but do you or any of your colleagues rebut this drivel? http://patriotpost.us/opinion/16429Twitter / MichaelEMann: @PegMitchell1 Its Joe Bastardi.

[from Bastardi's article] But I don't think the sun is yet a factor, though I am becoming very concerned it soon will be, and that the talk of us returning to the temperatures of the Victorian era are not that far fetched. For my part, simple oceanic climate cycle theory explains perfectly what is going on. The Pacific started its warm cycle at the start of the satellite era, in the late 1970s. The earth was colder because the Atlantic and Pacific had been cold. The Atlantic started its warm cycle in the mid-90s. The Pacific flipped into its cool cycle again in 2007. The Atlantic will do so around 2020. The warming that was observed is perfectly consistent with the addition of heat by the warming of the Pacific and the Atlantic. Once the increase in heat from the oceans (which have 1000 times the heat capacity of the atmosphere) was absorbed by the atmosphere, the temperatures leveled off. The recent cooling is because the Pacific has flipped into its cool cycle and once the Atlantic does, this should return air temperatures to where they were in the late 1970s. This is not rocket science -- it is a long standing theory that is ignored today, and with good reason. If correct, it is a huge threat politically, economically, and academically to positions that evolved as the warming started taking place!Flashback: Inside Michael Mann's bunker: He's carefully set up a "cocoon of unreality" in an attempt to avoid any contact with people who disagree with his junk science
