Time for "leading scientific organizations worldwide" to admit that global warming has stopped!

Global warming has stopped. There has been no warming during the last 15 - 17 years. Even the IPCC, has - reluctantly - had to admit that fact.

But what about the scientific organizations, which have issued public statements endorsing the claims about increasing human caused warming? One would expect that they have adjusted their statements accordingly.

However, it seems that all these organizations have chosen to remain silent on the issue. The Vatican of the global warming religion, taxpayer funded NASA, still proudly displays the same old statements of all  "leading scientific organizations worldwide" in support of human induced, continuing global warming.

Here are some examples:

American Association for the Advancement of Science

"The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society." (2006)

American Geophysical Union

"The Earth's climate is now clearly out of balance and is warming. Many components of the climate system — including the temperatures of the atmosphere, land and ocean, the extent of sea ice and mountain glaciers, the sea level, the distribution of precipitation, and the length of seasons — are now changing at rates and in patterns that are not natural and are best explained by the increased atmospheric abundances of greenhouse gases and aerosols generated by human activity during the 20th century." (Adopted 2003, revised and reaffirmed 2007)

American Physical Society

"The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now." (2007)

The Geological Society of America

"The Geological Society of America (GSA) concurs with assessments by the National Academies of Science (2005), the National Research Council (2006), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007) that global climate has warmed and that human activities (mainly greenhouse‐gas emissions) account for most of the warming since the middle 1900s." (2006; revised 2010)

International academies: Joint statement

"Climate change is real. There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)." (2005, 11 international science academies)
NASA also links to a list of  "nearly 200 worldwide scientific organizations that hold the position that climate change has been caused by human action".
Time to put some pressure on all these (formerly) venerable institutions!
