Global warming alarmists knew cooling was coming (hoping to restrict economic activity first)
Errortheory.blogspot.com/ ^ | February 18, 2008 | Alec Rawls

Posted on 02/22/2008 8:39:12 PM PST by CedarDave

Every climate scientist in the world has known beyond any doubt, for at least several years now, that late 20th century warming was driven almost entirely by the very high levels of solar activity between 1940 and 2000. They also know the corollary: that when solar activity drops into a down phase, the earth will get cold, possibly even precipitating the next ice age (due any century now).

It seems certain at this point that we are in for at least a substantial dip in global temperature. ...

If global cooling is known to be the real and impending danger, why is it that even with the onset of cooling, most climatologists are raising hysterical alarms about global warming? Because they are not actually concerned about global temperature at all. They are environmental religionists who believe that human economic growth is gobbling up the natural world.

Blaming late 20th century warming on fossil fuel burning was just an opportunity for these religionists to try to impose restrictions on economic activity, and in that way “save the planet” from human encroachment. Global warming alarmism never did have anything to do with climatology.

If only the sun had stayed aboil for one more solar cycle, the religionists would have succeeded. When the inevitable cooling did come, it would still pull the curtain off of their global warming hoax, but by then it would be too late. Economic restrictions would already be fixed in place, under UN bodies that the religionists control.

Alas, it was not to be. The fake bride was almost to the altar, but mother nature put her foot down on the bridal veil ... Fake minister Al Gore must be furious, but to no effect. Their game is up.

Excellent and very detailed explanation of the sun's effect on Earth's climate, but easily read and understood by the layman. And the star players in this fraud are exposed and skewered as they well deserve to be. It's a must read for global warming truth seekers.

Sleeping like a baby:

SOHO sunspot scan, 2-18-2008. Scientists have been waiting almost a year for solar cycle 24 to begin. A blip in August 2006 and a blip in January 2008 raised hopes, but all remains quiet.

NEWSWEEK: AL GORE NOW WORTH MORE THAN $100 MILLION

[Since 2000, according to published reports, the former veep has transformed himself from a public servant with around $1 million in the bank to a sparkling private consultant with a net worth estimated to be north of $100 million. He’s a senior adviser to Google, a board member at Apple and now a newly minted general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the Silicon Valley venture-capital firm that made billions investing early in Netscape, Amazon and Google. . .If Gore’s profit-sharing deal is anything like the firm’s other 23 partners, he’s also in line to collect tens of millions of dollars a year. That’s because partners carve up 30 percent of the profits if and when the alternative-energy start-ups that KP supports go public or are sold. . .]

"Blaming late 20th century warming on fossil fuel burning was just an opportunity for these religionists to try to impose restrictions on economic activity, and in that way “save the planet” from human encroachment."

Close, but keep in mind that they *exempted* China and India from Kyoto Global Warming Protocols.

Thus, their goal was not to limit human encroachment or economic activity, but rather to limit *Western* economic activity.

I have to wonder if the warming we’ve seen recently isn’t Mother Nature (God!) just getting the Earth ready for the cooling that was sure to follow if history is any indication. Natural systems abhor change and will resist it through whatever means available.

We’ve been had, again. We’ve been had in the past, Alar in the apples, and we’ll be had again. It’s our nature.

Depending on how serious the next cooling period is, it could well be that we’ll be most thankful for extra greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and the heat they kept here on Earth to help ease the cooling.

The key to this is controlling the western industrial countries BEFORE the natural cooling cycle takes hold. Once it starts to cool it is over for these cultists. The con will be exposed and they will fade until the next scare is found.

Either way, substantial cooling or socialist control of energy, we are in trouble. We should know quite a bit by November, the new cycle will either have turned up by then or not. Also we will know which of the three global warmists will be the next president. I am hoping (and voting) for the lesser evil. The two dems are hard core socialists who will commit to federal control of energy. With McCain at least there’s a chance he will have a few sane people around him.

When he now chooses to have folks from La Raza around him, the chances that he'll make a mistake and have any conservatives around him later are near 0.

What they were going to do was to claim that Kyoto worked...that the Earth was cooling because everyone cut back on emissions.

They blew the timing, fortunately.

Al Gore is preparing to pull off what could be a $100 million scam—an initial stock offering in his unprofitable cable channel:

AL GORE’S ‘CURRENT MEDIA’: AN INCONVIENENT IPO

. . .So unless you were to dig into the S-1 filing, you might think this IPO could fly. But it probably won’t, because it shows some key signs of an undercooked IPO.

First, Current Media isn’t profitable. Far from it, in fact: It has lost $37.4 million since it started recording revenue less than four years ago. Compare that with $140 million in aggregate revenue, and you have a company that has spent $1.27 for every $1 taken in.

>>”The c*** s****** socialists will lie about anything that will help neuter the USA.”<

-Not just the USA, Mr. P. They want to cripple capitalism, period.

The Globull Warmists don't want us to know that scientists have politics too — sometimes very socialist politics.

Read this quote:


“This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism...
I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion.

A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child.” — Albert Einstein

CO2 "explains" 0% of temperature variation statistically, yet it is included.

Not true. As the author admits earlier, there is a nonzero warming effect from CO2. While the author points out that CO2 generally rose after warming in the geological record, those increases in CO2 also produced increases in temperature up to the point where the positive feedback loop ended. The feedback loop is not infinite because CO2 warming generally decreases as CO2 concentrations increase, other feedbacks are variable (e.g. water vapor) and the forcing eventually changes (i.e. the changes in the sun that the author correctly points to).

This writeup is not particularly scientific, although it does contain lots of true scientific statements and is almost 100% true regarding climate politics.

It’ll be curious what the global warming crowd says is the solution when they finally admit global cooling is taking place. You can’t alter the sun or the earth...so to “survive”...we’d have to burn alot of carbon...which would really upset 50 percent of their crowd (they bought the silly carbon credits, which will fade quickly away).

So the question then becomes how much impact does man-caused increases in CO2 increase temperatures? And is it significant compared to other natural fluctuations in global climate. If it is relatively or statistically insignificant, then we can ignore it, especially if at some point the feedback loop is broken naturally.

Or, what is the climate sensitivity to increases in CO2 assuming that a large portion of the current CO2 increases are man-made? The alarmists say it is high, but I don't believe it is possible to know it is high without better resolution in weather simulations. It's bad enough that they leave out the solar influences, but to leave out convection and cloud details makes their claim of positive feedback from increased water vapor unsupportable.
