We’re headed for a Dalton Minimum, says climate guru

“The government is preparing for warming, which is outrageous.” Low sunspot activity means “the cooling will continue at least until 2030.”

Last week, the IPCC reported it was 95 percent certain that climate change was the result of human activity, specifically the burning of fossil fuels that emit “greenhouse gases,” says this article on WND.

“That’s the result that they get when you premeditate your science,” said Dr. Tim Ball, former professor of climatology at the University of Winnipeg.

“The temperature is going down and has for 17 years while carbon dioxide increases,” Ball said.

The IPCC and other scientists have branded this as a “pause” in climate change. Ball said that characterization implies that temperatures are temporarily holding steady and will inevitably rise again soon. He said that conclusion is dead wrong.

Cooling trend will continue for years to come

Why? “The sun is causing the cooling,” said Ball. “We’re heading toward what occurred around the year 1800. It was called the Dalton Minimum of low sunspot activities,” he explained. “We certainly are down to that in number of sunspots this year. That means the cooling will continue at least until 2030 and yet the government is preparing for warming, which is outrageous.”

“Some people think that this cycle of sunspot activity and global cooling will take us down to as cold as it was around 1680, which was the nadir of the Little Ice Age,” Ball added.

The southern hemisphere has been cooling for some time, said Ball. In fact, new reports from the National Snow and Ice Data Center suggest Antarctic ice levels are at record highs.

However, he believes the clinching evidence comes from the Arctic Circle.

“This was the year that even one scientist at NASA predicted that the Arctic ice in the summer would be gone completely,” he said. “Well, there’s 60 percent more ice this year than last year and the reason is because of the cooling sun and the cooling temperatures.”

The world is lucky to have a scientist as courageous as Dr. Ball, a scientist who dares to stand up and tell the truth.

Didn’t some braindead Hollyweird celebrity say just the other day that “climate change” was going to kill us all by 2030?

Could you narrow it down a little bit for me? That's a very large pool of people.

It's going to get a lot tougher for the homeless and stray cats.

It's time to indict Al Gore and bring him to justice.

I want him banished to northern Canada with a Speedo and a tube of Coppertone.

Saying we’re “heading for a Dalton minimum” is like saying we’re heading for a World War II. It’s a specific, named event in the past. We may very well be heading toward a solar minimum, but heading for a “Dalton” minimum is nonsensical.

There ya go! I guess I was wrong about the Hollyweird part. However, they’re all the same. Celebrity is just a polite way of saying, liberal loon.

Fine. Call it the Algore Minimum if you like. I think that would be perfect, don't you?

Any climate change is bad climate change, and all climate change is a result of whatever economic activity is pissing off the lefties on any given afternoon.
