On March 26th 2013, retired Professor Don Easterbrook from Western Washington University gave a devastating testimony before a Washington State Senate Committee against the belief that human induced CO2 is causing global warming. He opened up his presentation by criticizing media bias and the politicization of science through climate change, and said the planet is getting cooler rather than warmer. Easterbrook acutely remarked ...

The newest trend is to admit that some parts of the world is undergoing global warming, and some parts global cooling. Course, to fix anything at this point, would be comical to admit.
It's hard to believe that "scientists" are just now learning this. Retirees have known this forever.
Yep, our climate actually changes. LOL
One for the Agenda 21 group...
/sarc (sorta - but he wouldn't get my point anyway)
Warm globally, cool locally!
Are you from Morton?
LIBERALISM. The more it’s exposed the faster is collapses.
No. Lived in Central WA for about 18 yrs. However, I've been to/through Morton :-)
Thanks Olympiad Fisherman.
Do you live in Olympia? I went to high school there.
It is true that the Cascades are getting colder all the time. I like to hike there, and for about three years the snowpack has persisted until late July and starts again in September. Only about six weeks of hiking the higher parts without snowshoes.
For two years they did not even plow the road to Artemis Point on Mt. Baker because there was so much snow. I like the heavy snow on Baker for skiing, but like it to melt down for some summer hiking. That has not been happening lately.
I laugh at how they started naming ordinary thunderstorms to make them seem more intense and dangerous (and imply a relationship to “global warming”).
WWU grad, ‘84. Pretty sure I took at least one or two courses from him. Go Vikings!
Great read... thanks

Nazi Oaks: The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust
Unbeknownst to many, the highway to modern environmentalism passed through Nazi Germany. By 1935, the Third Reich was the greenest regime on the planet. Many scholars have rightly focused on Nazi racism over the years, but have often failed to notice that German Social Darwinism was rooted in ecology. What the Nazis derogatively labeled “the Eternal Jew,” the Jew who tried to overcome nature through international commercialism and cosmopolitanism, was specifically targeted. It is thus no coincidence that sweeping Nazi environmental legislation preceded the racially charged anti-Semitic Nuremberg Laws. Furthermore, the quest for Lebensraum in the East, was far more than just another form of colonial expansionism. It was also a sinister eco-imperial plan designed to Germanize the landscape by removing populations of people who were unsuited to their environment, and by turning it into a beautiful natural park for the future health of the German race.
Easterbrook is already retired, and yes, many have complained about his testimony - http://nwgeology.wordpress.com/2013/03/31/climate-change-wwu-geology-refutes-don-easterbrook/.
Global Cooling has already been confirmed on other scientific grounds. The point of the article is that the snows of Rainer are perfectly consistent with that scientific data - another proverbial feather in the cap.
Thanks for sending those graphs. I have read similar information before, but they are certainly an excellent reminder!
You are very welcome Sunken Civ!
Yes, I grew up in Olympia and graduated from CHS in 1984. I too spent much time in the Olympics and Cascades as a youngster, but not as much these days.
Thanks for the ping, Twotone.
