There is now irrefutable scientific evidence that far from global warming the earth has now entered a period of global cooling which will last at least for the next two decades.
Evidence for this comes from the NASA Microwave Sounding Unit and the Hadley Climate Research Unit while evidence that CO2 levels are continuing to increase comes from the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii.
Professor Don Easterbrook one of the principle speakers at the recent World Conference on climate change held in New York in March this year attended by 800 leading climatologists, has documented a consistent cycle of warm and cool periods each with a 27 year cycle. Indeed the warm period from 1976 to 1998 exactly fits the pattern of climate changes for the past several centuries long before there were any CO2 emissions. Greenland Ice core temperature measurements for the past 500 years show this 27 year cycle of alternating warm and cool periods. Recently the global temperature increased from 1918 to 1940, decreased from 1940 to 1976, increased again from 1976 to 1998 and has been decreasing ever since.
However throughout this time CO2 has been added to the atmosphere in increasing amounts. This point was brought out by at the New York conference by Vaclav Klaus the rotating President of the EU and President of the Czech Republic. If CO2 emissions cause temperature rises than why is it that every 27 years the earth climate switches to a cooling mode with decreasing temperature? Clearly there is another explanation that does not include humans. .
Nearly ten years into the 21 century it is clear that the UN IPCC computer models have gone badly astray. The IPCC models have predicted a one degree increase in global temperature by 2011 with further large temperature rises to 2100. Yet there has been no warming since 1998 with a one degree cooling this year being the largest global temperature change ever recorded. Nasa satellite imagery from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California has confirmed that the Pacific Ocean has switched from the warm mode it has been in since 1977 to its cool mode, similar to that of the 1945-1977 global cooling period.
The evidence that the earth is in a cooling mode rather than a warming mode is there for all to see. the RSS(Remote Sensing System) in Santa Rosa California has recorded a temperature fall of two to three degrees in the Arctic since 2005, while US Army buoys show an increase in Arctic ice thickness to 3.5 metres. North America has had two of its worst winters for sixty years with the temperature in Yellowstone Park falling to a staggering minus 60 degrees.
About 46 of snow fell in New York in two weeks! Last February Toronto had over 70 cms of snow, more than anything since 1950! Snow has fallen in parts of China and Asia for the first time in living memory while Britain had its worst January for twenty years. Alps have best snow conditions in a generation ran a newspaper headline last December. Strange indeed that the BBC , who likes us to believe it is impartial does not mention these freezing temperatures and Arctic conditions.
Some warming in the Antarctic has only been on a small 20 mile strip of the Antarctic Peninsula as a result of the 1977- 1998 warming period. This is insignificant compared to the overall size of the huge Antarctic continent.
Studies by the WeatherAction team(weatheraction.com) led by astrophysicist Piers Corbyn and also the measurements of sun spots by the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial physics in Irkutsk in Russia show that over the last 50 years solar activity has been at its highest for the past several thousand years.
The Russian physicists have analysed sun spot activity from 1882 to 2000 and have noted that the minimum of the cycle of solar activity will occur around 2021 to 2026 and that we will be facing not global warming but global cooling leading to a deep freeze around 2050.
The UN IPCC graphics have left out the medieval warming period (950-1300AD) and the Little Ice Age (1350- 1850). This alters the picture entirely
and does not then portray the alternating warm cool warm cool cycle of recorded world temperatures. Also statements put out by the UN IPCC are unrepresentative of many of its members. I do not recall any votes being taken of the opinion of members.
At the New York climate change conference in March as well as Vaclav Klaus delegates also heard Dr Richard Linzen from MIT probably the leading climatologist in the world today, as well as Professor Syun-Ichi Akasofu, former director of the International Arctic Research Center, Dr Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for astrophysics and Professor Paul Reiter of the Pasteur Institute who all demolished the global alarmists case piece by piece.
In his speech the EU President Vaclav Klaus had these controversial words for the environmentalist lobby.
Environmentalists-even mainstream environmentalists are less concerned about any crisis posed by global warming than they are eager to command human behaviour and restrict economic activity He also said their true plans and ambitions: to stop economic development and return mankind centuries back.
They are interested in their businesses and their profits made with the help of politicians
He got a standing ovation from the assembled audience.
His assertion about the involvement of politicians is not surprising. This whole movement is in many parts a political movement with nearly all the recognised climatologists throughout the world dissenting from the man made global warming theory.
This can be seen on the US Senate Environment committee web site with over 700 leading climatologists from 24 different countries including Nobel Prize laureates all dissenting from the man made global warming theory. It has been well reported that at least one of the architects of Koyoto has strong links with the New Age Movement which is not a movement that would promote economic growth.
We have all recently noticed the escalating price of food. The reason for this is because American grain, the breadbasket of the world, is increasingly being turned into ethanol which has led to a three fold increase of maize prices worldwide. This has the potential to cause worldwide starvation!

Ping me if you find one I've missed.
This can’t be! What about all those people who brought carbon credits from Al Gore?
That’s why the whackos changed it from “global warming” to “climate change”, so they could be right no matter what.
COME ON GUYS, ITS BEEN GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE NOW FOR ALMOST A YEAR. THAT WAY IT CAN BE HOTTER THAN NORMAL ONE YEAR AND COOLER THAN NORMAL THE NEXT AND WE STILL NEED TO DO THE SAME THINGS!
Not a second goes by without evolutionary change happening.
Excellent article. The science is settled. Gore is a quack!
But, I just bought a whole bunch of new Cabana wear!!!
I see a cartoon taking form. I can just make it out. It’s..yes...it’s Nobel prize winner Algore, frozen stiff like a popsicle, on stage, defiantly introducing his award-winning Global Warming film to his sycophants.
Not for argument sake, just fyi, if you are interested.
So the left will now have to determine whether more damage can be done to free enterprise with claims of global warming or global cooling! Decisions, decisions.
Good idea. I already live in Southern CA. Mexico can’t be much different!
Exactly right. No matter what the weather is it will be climate change. Even if we have absolutely perfectly appropriate weather for every particular season and locale, that will certainly be a change. Anybody who is still talking “global warming” is way behind the curve and needs to get up to speed.
It’s man made global climate change and there is no questioning the anticapitalist policies of the damned intellectuals. “it’s for your own good”
All I know is this, I’m freezing my buttinski off tody. It’s cold, rainy and VERY windy out. Brrrrr.
What the hell am I gunna do now with the 2 palm trees I bought for my front lawn?? This sucks!
So go to Cabana, LOL.
Al Gore must be visiting in your area. The cold seems to follow him around.
Global Warming is dead. Long live Global cooling.
“Which is why the scam was renamed ‘climate change’ some time back.”
Which is fine, except that in order to justify almost everything that’s been proposed the “change” has to be in the “warming” direction. Cooling makes the whole debate about CO2 and the other greenhouse gasses moot.
Sorry, Al. Keep the change!
That variability suggests that the observed period isn't a fundamental cycle. It is probably the interaction of multiple individual cycles.
The Climate Crisis is dead!
Long Live the Climate Crisis!
I predict Time and Newsweek will be coming out with major stories about how the Earth is now facing catastrophe which will be caused by global cooling. Oh, wait a minute, they did that already...back in 1975.
“Global Warming is dead. Long live Global cooling.”
This cooling must be a result of too much man made carbon blocking the sun’s rays. We can solve this easily by a carbon tax. But we must hurry, because time is running out.
I sure hope this isn’t true. I moved to NH and sold my snow blower!
Quick, MORE CARBON! MORE GREEN HOUSE GAS!
It didn't work. "Global Warming" stuck with the general populace, and even if it's spoken as "climate change", it's always change in the direction of getting hotter. That's why they had a "don't delay--act now!" posture to fleecing the world populace--even they knew warming was a crock of s**t and they had a limited timeframe to act.
Haven’t you heard, global cooling is a direct result of global warming. /s
Two volunteer/activists from an organization called Penn Environment were canvasing our neighborhood for contribution to “Fight Global Warming” last night door to door and were waiting in my driveway as I pulled in. When they introduced themselves I simply said “Goodbye” and walked into the house.
About 10 minutes later they knocked on the door again and my wife answered and told them that we were not accepting any solicitations and closed the door.
They came back about an hour later when we were having dinner and this time my daughter answered the door and asked to speak to me calling me by name! I went to the door and asked how they got my name and they told me that a neighbor gave it to them and also told them the I was a biologist. They demanded to know why I wouldn’t support them as my duty to science! I simply told them that they would have to pay me to get my profesional opinion. They said that their supervisor would be back tomorrow unless I forked over a contribution to which I said if he/she set one foot on my property the police would not be far off! At that point they left but they were pissed! I called around and found that they had the names of all the residents before knocking on the door!
I then called the police and told them abought these guys to which they sent out a squad car to my house! The officer told me that they had several complaints about these guys as I wasn’t the only one who was harrassed. They told me that a squad car would not be far away this evening if these chumps show up again.
Good for you!!
I’m surprised it’s not the heat, seeing he’s busy doing the devil’s work.
I’m having a carbon credit fire sale!
The global warming scam has run its course. I’m telling you all right now, the next big environmental junk science swindle that is going to replace it is “acid oceans”.
Acid Oceans = That all the manmade carbon emissions are being absorbed by the worlds oceans, and making it all soo acidic, all sealife is going to die.
I’m sure the Obama camp, to ram his cap and tax carbon trading system upon this country will use the threat of Acid Oceans at one of the top reasons.
I guarantee that the “solution” to Global Cooling will have to be more centralized power, reduced Western lifestyle, and more taxes.
“Acid Oceans”...Wasn’t Hendrix in The Band of Gypsies?
They said that their supervisor would be back tomorrow unless I forked over a contribution to which I said if he/she set one foot on my property the police would not be far off!
I would have pointed them to my little Terramite backhoe and asked if they knew what it was best suited for. When they looked confused I would have told them that it is the ideal machine for digging graves. If that didn’t do it I would have asked them to wait right there while I see if my friend Mr. Mossberg wants to speak with you.
I’m going to predict right here on FR that in the next 50 years the earth will either
- get cooler
- get warmer
- stay the same
Mark it down and in 50 years we’ll see if I’m right. (Course I’ll either be dead or drooling oatmeal on my hospital gown, so OTOH who cares?)
The High Priest of the Global Warming Cult, namely Algore, has put on so much weight that he's insulated from the ambient temperature by four to six inches of blubber.
He must have seen this new ice age coming.
While you are probably right on the money with the get cooler or get warmer you are way off on "stay the same!". One thing the planet doesn't do is stay the same weather wise.
If you missed it during Christmas, enjoy “ALGORE’S GLOBAL WARMING WONDERLAND”
It won't matter. This issue is all about government control of our lives and energy sources.
It has nothing to do with truth or real science.
They will switch, and say that global cooling is caused by rich Republicans driving their SUV’s to Lowes to buy light bulbs.
