Are You Ready For Global Cooling?
Investors.com ^ | May 21, 2010 | Investor's Business Daily Staff

Climate Science: Noted scientists at a Chicago climate conference declare that global warming is not only dead, but that the planet faces a big chill for decades to come. What about those frozen wind turbines?

It's not exactly Copenhagen or Kyoto, but the 700 scientists attending the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, sponsored by the Heartland Institute, had some chilling news of their own in the most liberal sense.

"Global warming is over — at least for a few decades," Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University, told the gathering. "However, the bad news is that global cooling is even more harmful to humans than global warming, and a cause for greater concern."

Frankly, I look forward to the good eats once all the Leftwingtards are placed in frozen storage.

No, I am not a cannibal. However, you can take any kind of meat you want, thaw it out and toss it to your dogs to eat.

You later on eat the dogs.

Can we just get some ‘global average’ before leaping into the global cooling from global warming? Even my simple washer has a couple of other cycles besides permanent depress.

Did you read the article?

"Rather than global warming at a rate of about 1 (degree) Fahrenheit 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," Easterbrook said. He spoke of natural cycles that have been occurring since the discovery of fire and mankind's first carbon emissions, long before the invention of the wheel and the SUV.

Yep, the sunspot cycle is still pretty puny, so looks like there will be cooling for a little while longer.

Once the Liberals adopt this, the remedy for global cooling will be the same as for global warming.

We see a bit of irony in an early February report that 11, 115-foot-tall wind turbines installed to provide power to 11 Minnesota towns were not functioning because they couldn't handle the record cold temperatures of a harsh winter.

Ah, irony can be lovely...

Its whatever works.

When you’re in the crisis business, and your solution is you, you, more power for you, and a magical money-laundering machine, any crisis will do. Global warming? Great. Global cooling? Brilliant. Global swarms of cicadas? Capital. Global lack of cicada swarms? It doesn’t matter. With a little money in the right places and a completely supine press corps you can sell ice to eskimos.

heck yeah. Bring on the cooling. I love cold weather the best. Easier hikes, more snow, mmmmm.....

Cold weather is, however, more harmful to humans.

It means less rain, CO2 is reduced(needed for plant life) and that all adds up to lower yields in farming and less arable land.

It also means less growing season as the cold and rain hang on, only the heartiest of crops can be produced such as potatoes and beans.

Crops that will be reduced with more cold are corn, wheat, hops, tomatoes, fruits. Basically, anything that loves sun will not grow or grow as hearty.

More sun and CO2= more vegetation. Think Amazon and Central America.

Still, I love the cold.

By 1100, a colony of about 3,000 was thriving there. But then came the Little Ice Age, and by 1400, average temperatures had declined by about 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, and the advancing glaciers doomed the Viking colony in Greenland.

The High Middle Ages, from 1000 to 1250 AD, was a time of prosperity, brought on by global warming (not caused by SUVs) and the bumper crops it created. This was followed by the Late Middle Ages, a more dismal time, caused by Little Ice Age.

Cooler temperatures do not support a large global population.

From my alma mater, however I suspect he’s the only there who would admit this truth. The eco-freaks at Fairhaven college are probably storming his house right now.
