A Crack in the Armor of the Global Warming Alarmists?

This article by Debra Saunders of the San Francisco Chronicle makes reference to a BBC item citing the fact that global  temperatures have actually been declining for the past ten years.  And this from the BBC, long recognized as a bastion of left wing orthodoxy.  Ms Saunders cites other studies by a variety of authors which question the accuracy of the Chicken Little school of climate change research. Global warming alarmists have long tried to shut down debate by claiming that there was no debate.  It had been decided.  They attempted to ostracize dissenters by labeling them as crackpots or stooges of an evil cadre of carbon polluters.  Thank goodness the heretics persisted in their belief that meticulous science should trump politically correct ideology.  There seems to be a resurgence in the numbers of climate scientists willing to question the validity of the Gospel of Global Warming.  I hope this trend continues. 

Here's a link to the original BBC article.
