Were 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.

There is nothing nonsensical about making reference to a comparative event in the past when you have no existing event in the future to which the comparison can be made.

From what little I understand about the various minimums, They use the names of the most well-known to describe the severity of upcoming minimums. So a “Dalton” is less severe than a “Maunder”.

When I was very active, from age 14, in chasing DX (foreign countries) on ham radio, I lived and died by the 11 yr sunspot cycles. The very best were in the late 50s. There were some nights when the entire world was open at the same time. A few watts would go around the world. I pretty much quit when I made it to the ARRL’s DXCC top of the honor roll. DE W4EX

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.

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

The more carbon dioxide produced, the more plants have to feed on to produce oxygen, foods, building materials and fireplace logs.

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

And the sad fact is, if we do enter a mini ice age, many will die because the US/EURO government has been prepping the wrong way. Of course that bozo celebrity drank all the global warming koolaid and licked the punch bowl clean. So he was with the US/EURO governments. Some of these old hippies really did not age well. They actually became their own worse enemies.

We just need a name to blame it on. Dalton is a good one!

Whatever anyone says the weather is going to be. You can be sure it’s going to be the opposite of that.

And how, exactly, is this news supposed to help the Democrats and the global communists extract trillions of dollars, forever, in new energy taxes from Americans so that it may be skimmed and “redistributed” to third world pisspots? Well?

I don’t even know why the bastards get paid. All they would need to do is announce:

“Hey everybody, here’s the doppler radar weather map...take a look at what’s coming our way.”

In fact they could just have some cheap bimbo do it and have her do it just for ratings.

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

>> but heading for a “Dalton” minimum is nonsensical.

You can’t single out “Dalton”. You must quote both terms “Dalton Minimum” given the independent meaning of Dalton’s law.
