Global Cooling Is Coming -- and Beware the Big Chill, Scientist Warns

Contrary to the commonly held scientific conclusion that the Earth is getting warmer, a scientist who has written more than 150 peer-reviewed papers has unveiled evidence for his prediction that global cooling is coming soon.

The hottest new trend in climate change may be global cooling, some researchers say.

Contrary to the commonly held scientific conclusion that the Earth is getting warmer, Dr. Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University and author of more than 150 peer-reviewed papers, has unveiled evidence for his prediction that global cooling is coming soon.

“Rather than global warming at a rate of 1 F per decade, records of past natural cycles indicate there may be global cooling for the first few decades of the 21st century to about 2030,” said Easterbrook, speaking on a scientific panel discussion with other climatologists. This, he says, will likely be followed by “global warming from about 2030 to 2060,” which will then be followed by another cooling spell from 2060 to 2090.

The Statue of Liberty, depicted as frozen solid in the movie The Day After Tomorrow. New research from a leading geologist indicates a coming period of "global cooling" may be dangerous.

If it goes into an ice age, billions will starve to death.

Hey....I live up here in the upper Midwest!

We've broken 80 degress only once since Jan 1, 2010....and it is May 19th for pete's sake.

The polar bears will soon be hunting harmless little puppies and kitties right in my backyard!

And it was only two years ago that I bought land along the Mississippi (on algore's recommendation) that global warming was going to turn the upper midwest into the new Miami beach!!!!

So what do I do now?????????????????????????

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Someone needs to inform AlGore & the rest of the ‘nonprofit’ con men that ‘global cooling’ happens in the winter and ‘global warming’ in the summer.

The climate is cooling. Legitimate scientists have known for several years now that the sun has decreased its energy output. The result is a cooler Earth. The only thing sinister going on here is that some unscrupulous researchers have been trying to con us into believing in Global Warming which in turn means that most people will not be prepared for the cooler climate that is ahead.

It doesn't matter. The point is it has to be man made. The Left quickly realized their folly when they blamed a particular climate anomaly of the day(warming) on man's actions, which itself was exaggerated. The trick is to blame everything. Thus, 'climate change'.

In response to this global cooling, I am quite positive that the environmental nuts will start calling for the increased use of SUV’s and the construction of coal fired power plants all over the USA.

...

ROFL!

The water hazards will have increased dramatically, but the obamanation has said he will stop the oceans from rising.

Also, many new fairway sand traps will exist from the burned out grass.

How about this - it will either warm, cool or stay the same over the next X years. At some point, a trend will form that we’ll recognize, perhaps only after the fact. In the short term, it will look mostly like fluctuation around the mean.

Then we expect another Ice Age. Just looking at the historical data.

Note: there are more data points near the present, so the random variations and errors make it appear as if there was more short term variation than in the past, but it's just a density of samples effect.

Well life is gonna suck for a while. But look at the bright side. If there is another ice age there are some good things.
(1)A mile thick glacier will push New York into the ocean
(2)The drop in sea levels will put LA and SF way inland so nobody will want to live there.
(3)A mile thick glacier will push New York into the ocean
(4)We will get to yell TOLD YA SO at the global warmers before we freeze or starve to death
(5)A mile thick glacier will push New York into the ocean
(6)Russia & Europe will have it worse than us so the libs will finally stop trying to make us into a mirror of Europe.
(7) Oh and did i mention that a mile thick glacier will push New York into the ocean

Indeed, I rarely even take today’s weather report seriously. The most accurate, up-to-date weather report is what you get when you stick your head out the window. As for climate, that’s what you get after observing the weather over a long period. If something like an asteroid or a volcano throws up a huge amount of dust and causes mass extinctions, etc, chances are I’ll be too busy to care about the um “climate”.

Get a rock and hang from a rope - then you can predict the weather!!!

If the rock is wet, it is raining.
If the rock is green, it rained a while ago.
If the rock is white, it is snowing.
If the rock is shaking, there is an earthquake.
If the rock is dry, the weather is fair.
If the rock is swinging, it’s windy.
If the rock is warm, the sun is out.
If the rock is not visible, it’s foggy.
If the rock is under water, there is a flood.
If the rock is gone, there is a tornado (Run!!)

Are these so-called ‘scientist’ the same people were calling for ‘global warming”? If so I wonder how they think anyone can take such idiots seriously.

“How come we never get credit for that?”

When the MSM eventually gets around to conceding this point, you can rest assured Al Gore will be first in line to claim credit. He did, after all, invent the Internet, so saving the planet from imminent catastrophe is really small potatoes for a man of his talents.

Many quotes on weather, but none like Lazarus Long.

I often find statements from Jonathan Swift close to both
Mark Twain and Robert Heinlein.
Also Close statements from mark Twain in Robert Heinlein's

I’m by Lake Erie. I wish it would warm up. I wish the cold rainy days would stop. I’ve had 4+” in the last few days. The yard is mush. I wish the wind would back off. Where is spring? It feels like late October here lately. Some warm days at the start of the month, but not any more.

May showers bring June flowers??

We have a storm coming this weekend that will bring rain and snow above 6500 ft. My wife and I are heading to Yellowstone National Park on Friday. West Yellowstone is forecasting 2 to 3 inches of snow Friday night.

We had 7 inches on snow in Pocatello on June 6, 2008. Lots of "global warming residue".
