Unfortunately, the debate is not about the science, it is about feeeeeeeeeeeeelings.

this guy is right. Global warming has far more to do with solar output and the cyclical variations in orbits, precission, eccentricity and tilt.

http://www.windows.ucar.edu/tour/link=/earth/climate/cli_sun.html

Earth gets all its energy from the Sun and it is the Sun's energy that keeps Earth warm. But the amount of energy Earth receives is not always the same. Changes in the Sun and changes in Earth's orbit affect the amount of energy that reaches the Earth.

The 11-Year Solar Cycle
When the Sun has fewer sunspots, it gives off less energy, less energy makes its way to Earth, and our planet cools down. More than three hundred years ago, when the climate was cooler for a time called the "Little Ice Age", people noticed there were no sunspots for several decades. Over time, scientists have noticed a pattern in the number of sunspots. About every 11 years the number of sunspots reaches a high and then decreases again.

Milankovitch Cycles
Over thousands of years, changes in Earth's orbit cause changes in the amount of the Sun's energy that gets to the planet. Over the past several million years these changes have caused cycles of global warming and cooling.

There are three ways that Earth's orbit changes over time.

Eccentricity: The shape of Earth's orbit around the Sun becomes slightly more and then less oval every 100,000 years.
Precession: Earth wobbles on it axis as it spins, completing a full wobble every 23,000 years.
Tilt: The angle of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of its orbit changes about three degrees every 41,000 years.

GLOBAL WARMING PRIMER

These two figures show former temperatures with major periods of glaciation labeled. The dashed lines are the present global average temperature of about 15° C (59° F). Thus the solid curves show small changes from this average; note that the temperature drops only about 5° C during a glaciation. This has occurred about every 100,000 years, with smaller wiggles in between. That is, there has been a 100,000 year glaciation cycle for the past million years or so, and there may be shorter cycles as well.

The most recent glaciation, 20,000 years ago, is called the Laurentide, and Earth is still recovering from it. This map from the The Illinois State Museum exhibit on ice ages shows the extent of that ice.


The most recent small drop in average temperature caused the Little Ice Age of 1500-1700 AD, which history describes. Mountain glaciers advanced in Europe and rivers like the Thames in England froze solid, which doesn't happen now.

(((GLOBAL WARMING PING)))



You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming. Freep-mail me to get on or off.



Good editorial which uses science and facts to refute mainstream media alarmism. He must be paying attention to Junkman and me. *Wink*

That he does!

Now, if only we could get this in the MSM! Yea right. The Enviroweenies make WAY too much $$ scaring people and with out a cause to harp on, they have no reason to exist. So the only real extinction we are talking about is that of the Enviroweenies, which is actual a laudable goal. Someone please start in Oregon!

Once in awhile we have an intelligent and rationale analysis of the current global warming trend. The Sun has been putting out more energy this particular solar cycle, as it has in the past. As a result the Earth, Mars, and Venus are experiencing global warming. The warming trend is 100% caused by the Sun and not by Mankind. The blaming of Mankind is akin to Pagan worship but sacrificing sound economies instead of fair maidens. Nice post!

though satellite data has shown no such warming to date.

No, he doesn't. Every current analysis of lower troposphere satellite data (MLS data set) now shows warming consistent with models of the predicted warming due to greenhouse gases in this century.

Anyone who makes the statement that "satellite data don't show warming in the lower atmosphere" has not updated his understanding of the global warming topic since 1999.

The new push for moonbats is "Cow farts" as a cause for global warming!
