Art Horn's analysis should satisfy the skeptics as to their questions why global warming isn't actually happening. It's counterbalancing the systemic input of CO2 into the atmosphere. Horn also points out that there could be a resultant spike in energy consumption, which of course also means burning more fossil fuel to stay warm.Again and again, what the skeptics don't seem to comprehend (or choose to flatly deny) is that when you put more energy into the overall system, the system becomes more turbulent, more violent, and more unpredictable. You get more extreme storm patterns. You get more extreme El Ninos and El Ninas. You get more extremes of both highs AND lows. The whole system goes out of its previous equilibrium state, and becomes dangerously unpredictable.
But Art, why wouldn't the system become more turbulent if the opposite happened? Approach this from a purely logical perspective. Horn correctly predicted what is happening. The AGW people did not. Corbyn correctly predicted what is happening. The AGW people did not. "Climate change" is a nonsense phrase -- change is what climate is about. If you can explain every meteorological event in terms of "global warming," then "global warming" is simply weather. Or such is what my Jesuit preceptors woudld have concluded. I'm sorry, I don't buy the AGW line.
