Is ‘global cooling’ the new scientific consensus?

What the Gorons think will happen.

What REAL climate scientists think.

Is there a new scientific consensus forming around global cooling? That’s  what environmentalist Lawrence Solomon writes in the Financial Post, citing the fact  that solar activity is decreasing at the fastest rate as anytime in the last  10,000 years.

“Now an increasing number of scientists are swinging back to the thinking of  the 1960s and 1970s,” Solomon writes. “The global cooling hypothesis may have  been right after all, they say. Earth may be entering a new Little Ice Age.”

Solomon adds that Columbia University’s George Kukla — who warned the U.S.  government about the dangers of global cooling in 1972 — postulated that  “[g]lobal warming always precedes an ice age… The warming we saw in the 1980s  and 1990s, in other words, was expected all along, much as the calm before the  storm.”

Recently, scientists have been looking to solar activity as a predictor of  world climate. Low solar activity has been connected with cold periods in human  history, while high levels of solar activity have been connected with warming  periods, like the recent one from the 1950s to 1998.

The United Nation’s climate authority has tried to downplay the influence of  solar activity on the Earth’s climate, but climate scientists have been more  assertive that the sun plays a role in affecting global temperatures.

“Attention in the public debate seems to be moving away from the 15-17 year  ‘pause’ to the cooling since 2002,” writes Dr. Judith Curry, the chair of the  School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Curry describes the period since 2002 as “scientifically interesting” because  “it coincides with the ‘climate shift’” of roughly 2001-02. “This shift and the  subsequent slight cooling trend provides a rationale for inferring a slight  cooling trend over the next decade or so, rather than a flat trend from the 15  [year] ‘pause’,” she added.

Earlier this year, Professor Cliff Ollier of the School of Earth and  Environmental Studies at the University of Western Australia presented a study  that posited that the sun was a major controller of the climate.

“There is a very good correlation of sunspots and climate,” Ollier wrote. “Solar cycles provide a basis for prediction. Solar  Cycle 24 has started and we can expect serious cooling. Many think that  political decisions about climate are based on scientific predictions but what  politicians get are projections based on computer models.”

Last year, Russian scientists also posited that from next year onward the  world could expect the start of the another Little Ice Age.

“After the maximum of solar cycle 24, from approximately 2014 we can expect the start of deep cooling with a Little Ice Age in 2055,” wrote Habibullo Abdussamatov of the Russian Academy of  Science.

The “Little Ice Age” occurred during the 1600s when winters were harsh all  across Europe. The continent-wide cold weather coincided with an inactive sun,  called the Maunder solar minimum.

Recently, the BBC reported that  Professor Mike Lockwood of the Reading University estimates that at the current  rate of decline in solar activity, Northern Europe could plunge into another  “Little Ice Age.”

“By looking back at certain isotopes in ice cores, [Lockwood] has been able  to determine how active the sun has been over thousands of years,” The BBC  reports.” Following analysis of the data, Professor Lockwood believes solar  activity is now falling more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000  years.”

A debate over whether or not the globe is warming or cooling has actually  ensued in the U.K., with the government recently declaring that the world is not  cooling.

“The slow changes in the Earth’s orbit are not, however, expected to cause  any net global cooling over the next several centuries, which will be dominated  by a warming global climate due to greenhouse gas emissions,” reads a recent report to the UK’s House of  Lords.

However, the record-level growth of Arctic sea ice coverage and the recent  record-low cold  snap in Chile may have some doubting that the globe  is warming as rapidly  as some in the environmental movement argue.

“The last 400 years we’ve been thawing out of the Little Ice Age, if you  like,” said Don Easterbrook, professor emeritus of  geology at Western Washington University.

“So the warming we saw, which lasted only from 1978 to 1998, is something  that is predictable and expectable,” he added. “When the ocean changed  temperatures, global cooling is almost a slam dunk. You can expect to find about  25 to 30 years yet ahead of us before it starts to warm up again. It might even  be more than that.”

Not much I can add to this article. Pretty compelling case, if you ask me.

Can’t WAIT to see the Fraudacle digging out from under 10 feet of snow at the mansion in Malibu to denounce THESE findings. Which I am sure he will do, IF he can figure out which way to point the shovel.

    Awww, Shucks….Poor ol’ Gore….now he’ll have to rely on his other tale…”I invented the internet.”

  2. BrianR says:

    Well, you know what the Gore-ists will do. Try to ignore it and bury it under the rug. Those facts are just TOO “inconvenient”.

  3. CW says:

    That’s the beauty of transitioning the crises from “global warming” to “climate change.” No matter what happens Gore and his cronies can still make money!

  4. Clyde, Darn good information~! There has been a movie made of this already:
    As I recall, it was titled, “Day After Tomorrow”

    • Clyde says:

      Thanks, GF. Didn’t know about that movie, since I’m not much for them.

      • I’m not much into movies, either, Clyde,,, My Angel was watching it, and I couldn’t sleep,,, Actually, pretty damn close to the scenario that we are facing, if it all hits the fan,,, The ONLY thing I can really bark about on it, is the supposed speed of the freeze.

  5. Mrs AL says:

    In answer to the Q in the title … I think CW answered it effectively. Nothing more for me to add except — good posting, Clyde.

  6. western guy says:

    Did’nt I mention this last week?, or was it week before last? Hmmm
