Roger L. Simon is noticing a sea change as well:
My liberal friends don’t want to talk about global warming anymoreThe fact that a conscious decision was made to move the argument away from "global warming" to "climate change," whatever that may mean, spoke volumes. Was it the tactical error that brought doom to the warmists' position? Or was it just a signal that they were losing on the merits and became desperate?
All of a sudden… well, not quite all of a sudden, but recently… I have noticed my liberal friends (except for the most extreme and knee-jerk) are not very interested in discussing man-made global warming. The subject rarely comes up and, when it does, it is passed over quickly, given only a nod. It’s as if that was last year’s - or last decade’s - fad, at the very moment the House of Representatives has been browbeaten by LaPelosita into voting for a cap-and-trade bill no known person has read, let alone understood.

I choose the latter.
I know - and they now have an uneasy feeling - that the planet is not warming because of anything we as human beings are doing. Instead it's something called Nature (as in "natural").
The study of climate will soon lose its hysterics and get back to its rightful scholarly place.
And soon, very soon, we'll be taking names and heaping ridicule on those who fell for all Al Gore's shrill nonsense.
Soon. Very soon.
