Skip to comments.Lorne Gunter: Thirty years of warmer temperatures go poof
Posted on 10/20/2008 9:54:52 AM PDT by managusta
In early September, I began noticing a string of news stories about scientists rejecting the orthodoxy on global warming. Actually, it was more like a string of guest columns and long letters to the editor since it is hard for skeptical scientists to get published in the cabal of climate journals now controlled by the Great Sanhedrin of the environmental movement.
"An analytical chemist who works in spectroscopy and atmospheric sensing, Michael J. Myers of Hilton Head, S. C., declared, "Man-made global warming is junk science," explaining that worldwide manmade CO2 emission each year "equals about 0.0168% of the atmosphere's CO2 concentration ... This results in a 0.00064% increase in the absorption of the sun's radiation. This is an insignificantly small number."

"It may be that more global warming doubters are surfacing because there just isn't any global warming."
Therefore I could not beat the response by " osaycanuc"
"Can't you just hear the hot air whooshing out of this balloon? PHSSSSSSSSST! To wit, the lack of comments here, where one might normally expect to see a torrent - nay a geyser! - of piqued opinion as to the relative science around either side.
Checkmate, anti-capitalist, anti-consumerist, anti-carbon buffoons. Your bandwagon is running out gas!"
When volcanoes are outlawed, only outlaws will...
Obama's going to give us a free windmills for our band wagon, so there! Nya!
Find later self ping.
Thanks for the ping!
Does not matter, government will implement “green” solutions at any cost for the next few years then take the credit.
I think with the downturn in the economy, frankly we just can’t afford to have a global warming catastrophe, so we won’t.
Stars are not thermonuclear engines; They are plasma-physics phenomena. They're basically similar to lightning rods i.e. focal points of cosmic discharge. As they pass through regions of space with greater or lesser electrical potential from themselves, they heat up or cool off.
Oddly enough, that’s exactly what the Europeans are now saying.
Funny how that works, eh?
First time I've heard of this.
Got any links which discuss this phenomenon?
While interesting, I seem to remember reading the satellite data can be deceiving and not give an accurate picture compared to actual ground readings.
Still, the point that there is no doubt a cyclic nature to cold and warm periods is true.
There most certainly is a cycle, and we are due for a cold period. Whether all the warm period has been due to that cycle or even most of it, however, could be hard to tell.
Could liberals as narrow minded and rigid as they seem?
Google searches on 'plasma cosmology' will produce more if that isn't enough.
I notice a subtle shift of concern from Global Warming to Climate Change. This allows Al Gore to sound the alarm no matter what the weather does.
We’re likely headed into a new little ice age: think of it as God’s plan to make demoKKKrats look stupid.
Another way to look at it is that if WW-II did not bring about the great man-made eco-holocaust, it can’t happen.
This is why they are in a panic to pass some sort of feel-good legislation on this. If they can claim credit for addressing the “problem” before it’s evidence there isn’t one, they can be the big heroes.

Are you serious?
I just love it when I can say, “SEE??? I told ya so! nyah-nyah-nyah!”
That was um...rather pithy.
I had a visual of a pyramid on legs, e-vil-looking red eyes, coming after me...yah...that would bring fear into the hearts of mortal men, alright...
One of the major arguments of the doomists was that there were no reputable scientists who opposed their wacko theory. Now they seem to be arising from all around the world scoffing at the notion of man-made gw. The doomists have been fairly silent lately. Maybe they sense the scam is about over.
Let’s start calling it the ‘AlGore Minimum’.
If you like hot summers you better fix the summer of 07 in your mind really good; we’re probably not going to live long enough to see another one.
? You know what you doing ?
Well here on the Texas gulf coast our climtate is exactly the same as it was when we moved here 35 years ago. The occasional hurricane and rare snowfall, same ole same ole.
Nice to meet you!
Where is Al Gore when reports come out about early, extra cold winter weather hitting everywhere? He only comes out in JULY when it is SUPPOSED to be HOT!
“...The Electric Universe theory interprets the Sun as an electrode in a plasma discharge. From this point of view, the x-ray emitting atmosphere is not an anomaly. X-rays are a common signature of electrical activity. As early as the 1960’s, Charles Bruce demonstrated how electric discharge phenomena explains five major and thirteen minor anomalies of solar surface behavior. Imagine the Sun not as a nuclear bomb in the sky but as an electric arc-lamp plugged into a galactic power grid...”
February 13, 2007 --- HEARING ON 'WARMING OF THE PLANET' CANCELED AFTER ICE STORM (Drudge Report )
March 1, 2007 --- Minnesota Public Radio's "Global Warming: The Home Front" scheduled for March 1 was cancelled due to insufficient global warming ("based on current travel advisories ").
March 7, 2007 --- A Congressional subcommittee meeting on Energy and Air Quality Hearing on "Climate Change: Are Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Human Activities Contributing to a Warming of the Planet?" was cancelled due to a snow advisory. "A SNOW ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CAUSE PRIMARILY TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SNOW COVERED ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES...AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING."
Recall that greenhouse hypothesis maintains that warming due to increases in the greenhouse effect is anticipated to be greatest in the winter.
An old post re-posted. I hope the links haven't expired.
Hey, Varmint, you sound like you should join my Electric Universe Ping list on FR... interested?
If you are interested, I maintain the Electric Universe Ping list on FreeRepublic that calls members to articles discussing evidence for the electrical nature of the Universe.
Makes a lot more sense than trying to believe that two dust motes are going to attract eachother via gravity from three to five miles away...
I’d be interested.
No they don't. Why don't you do some homework. There is no support for your claim on any sort of an Internet search. If you try to use your volcano argument the AGW crowd will shoot you down and discredit you.
There's enough ammunition against the Global Warming nut cases that you don't have to use stuff that isn't true. Let them do that!
I agree. The global warming greenies are laying low; they are playing close to the vest in the belief 0bama is winning. Once he is in the White House, they don’t have to sell their agenda. They know it will be forced on us.
