What Happened to Global Warming?

Yesterday, as Al Gore spoke in Madison about the "inconvenient truth" of global warming, Wisconsin experienced one the the earliest snowfalls in recorded history. Enthusiasts continue to enlist the government to mandate social behavior consistent with their belief in models that appear to have failed.... what happened to global warming:

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

When forecasted data is inconsistent with the related observed phenomenon, the model must be rejected as either invalid or insufficient. Generally, this type of experimental outcome would cause a scientist to change or abandon a hypothesis. Perhaps the global hypothesis is much more to Al Gore than a hypothesis or a theory but involves a belief system that is based upon faith rather than data.
