Posted on 01/10/2010 3:28:24 PM PST by Shellybenoit
Back in September a climate Scientist, named Mojib Latif predicted that the earth was facing a mini "ice age," 20-30 years of global cooling. Latif said the cooling would be the result of changes to ocean currents and temperatures in the North Atlantic, a feature known as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). Latif also said that the NAO may be partly the cause of warming during the past 30 years (he also said he is not a global warming skeptic).
The prediction of this non-skeptic challenge some of the Church of Global Warming's most holy beliefs, like the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in summer by 2013, only a bit more than three years from now.
The US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, says that Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007, and even the most committed global warming moonbats do not dispute this. Ah, it must be a trick, the ice is going to disappear by growing. Just like the cooling is the result of global warming.
The scientists predictions about the effects of changes to ocean currents, also undermine the standard climate computer models, which assert that the warming of the Earth since 1900 has been driven solely by man-made greenhouse gas emissions and will continue as long as carbon dioxide levels rise.

Excuse me but....... these people are a bunch of f’n idiots.
Low CO2 levels are causing the return of the ICE AGE. Unless we get rid of all these high mileage cars and catalitic converters we will freeze. We must burn more fossil fuels. All the plants are going to die and we are going to starve because of reduced carbon dioxide emmissions. Unrenewable energy is the answer. We need reverse carbon credits for those with too small of a carbon footprint...
Explain how the earlier ice age happened.
Liberals are always wrong on everything. They must seek out error and pursue it vigorously. I guess in that sense they are successful.....well its something anyway.
Simple. There were no internal combustion engines. Muscle cars were the only thing staving off the return of the ICE AGE. We are doomed unless we bring back the 442 and GTO. We must manufacture millions of them and get the lead back in the gas.
Not to mention that when the dinosaurs went extinct the dinosaur farts were no longer helping stave off the ice.
The fact that my pool has an inch thick layer of ice on it here in Montgomery, AL is proof the Ice Age is returning.
Right. All this is caused by the EPA limiting auto emmissions. Here in Tampa we used to be able to stave off freezing the Oranges with smudge pots. Laws forbidding the use of smudge pots are causing Florida to freeze and killing Manatees by the thousands. Smudge pots are needed in every yard. They emit high levels of CO2.
Excuse me but, you are living on a planet populated by over 6 billion apes. Idiocy is the norm. Care to prove these particular apes idiocy ?
(I bet you could actually turn this into a plausible argument, then sit back and watch the environmentalists and global idiots heads explode.)
Does that mean I can check off the “other” box when they ask my race on the census form?
If that happens Doomsday will be emminent. The lack of CO2 in the atmosphere is causing all these Earthquakes. The Polar Bears are going to be trapped in glaciers and die.
The easy way to explain Ice Age conditions is to posit an ON PERIOD where there's 2 mile deep ice on North America and an OFF PERIOD where there's an interglacial period like we have come to know and love.
The harder way is to note that it's not all ice all the time, nor is it warm all the time. The cycle continues throughout the period of performance ~ and sometimes we have a lot of ice, sometimes a moderate amount, and sometimes it all goes away, but even then there are times when it starts to come back.
Plus, we have TWO major controlling elements. One is North America and the other is Antarctica. As you will notice Antarctica will has thousands of feet of ice but it doesn't have a 2 mile deep ice sheet. Neither does North America. Both areas have sea ice, either in the Arctic Ocean basin or around Antarctica.
We need to worry when Antarctic sea ice increases its coverage AND when the ice gets deeper (which we'll know because the glaciers flowing to the sea will speed up).
I think that already happened.
I saw that polar bear commercial for CO15 and the one with the terrified little girl, which might have been the same one.
This is the one thing that can save the world. GTO. And just look Obama destroyed the only company that could save us. We must ressurect Pontiac and get to work.
You guys can’t have smudge pots? For real?
Unless we start emmitting more Carbon the process will speed up and in Ten Years the Gays in Key West will have to move to Kwaijalien Atoll. Key west will be a Frozen Teenage Wasteland.
No just put...Drag. We need to readjust all the stoplights to go really quick and have drag races between each light. This will burn more fossil fuel and help to warm the Earth back to normal.
Click on the side article about Ashley Greene (warning soft porn body paint). Now she could stop an Ice Age in its tracks.
No more smudgepots. The Manatees are dying off because of Global Freezing caused by the EPA. It is going to be catastrophic unless we get more CO2 in to the atmosphere asap. There is a consensus on this science and there can be no debate allowed. I have in my possession a secret report on it. This report was done by top scientists at area 52. A secret base in Antartica.
At least it would help. Heavy breathing emits more CO2.
Race is not species.
Way to go. You might consider lead additives in your gas you can get it at NAPA. Also buy your gas at marinas where you can get gas with no ethanol. Ethanol reduces the CO2 and is contributing to the Global Ice Age. We must all do our part to increase CO2 emmissions.
If it happens, then we need to sue Gore and his supporters for fraud.
I was asking a serious question. Used to go to Florida often, but I’ve not been there in quite a while. Also, I though ice was sprayed over the fruit to prevent freezing. However, I didn’t know a grower couldn’t use smudge pots, let alone someone with a few trees on his property (even though I did know that some residents’ individual trees were cut down—competition to growers, I guess).
Naahhh. No Smudge Pots. They also cut down all the Austrailian Pines that served as windbreaks. Face it. We have let the Government go wild on us. These people are Nuts.
What do they mean by global temperatures anyway? Assuming that the total radiant energy from the sun that is reaching earth is constant, how can air or water currents affect the average temperature? Seems to me that all currents do is move accumulated heat from one part of the earth to another unless these currents can somehow increase the total heat energy retention of the earth under certain circumstances.
That cow must have had Mexican food.
CUDA! Go Mopar for Mo Powah.
emissions; imminent; eminent
Basically, you’re right; we have measurable regional temperatures and unmeasured interpolations — which are then added, averaged, adjusted and extrapolated for projections; and here we are.
Take a look at this animation. Note all the marine layer coming off the water in the Gulf and East coast of the US. That is because the air is much colder then the water. Our oceans are cooling. The sun moved the marine layer further off the coast by heating the air some, but late tonight the marine layer will be all the way to the coasts again.
Caption: India test fires its newest ballistic missile.
Very important. It affects the Ozone Layer for starters. Another NASA scare born from ignorance. A new study also found that it affects the temperature of Earth's outer atmosphere, which ends up causing the outer atmosphere to expand and shrink in volume.
Neither do I. And the Eddie I knew ended up dead in a ditch in Michigan. What goes around comes around eventually.
It’s a link to an ASCII text file on a government website giving irradiance values for the sun from 1979-2003. Haven’t cought a virus from an ASCII text file yet but would change my browser and OS shortly afterwards if I did.
