Climate Alarmists in Denial: There’s new evidence that the climate is cooling
American Thinker ^ | 05/15/2014 | Jeffrey Folks

Posted on 05/15/2014 7:26:42 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

As if this winter weren’t enough, there’s new evidence that the climate is cooling.  For those alarmists who still don’t get it, even the International Panel on Climate Change, hardly a group of climate change skeptics, now admits that the last decade and a half has been a period of little change in the Earth’s climate.  When a committee of climate activists expresses reservations about global warming, you know it’s getting colder.

Some of the strongest evidence of cooling comes in a recent report on natural gas usage during this past winter.  For the first time, the U.S. burned more than 3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas this winter, most of it for heating.  That was more than the 2.3 trillion cf of 2012-13, and double that of 2011-12.

That evidence is irrefutable.  We have lived through a winter of historic proportions – the coldest winter in Vermont’s long history, and the third-coldest for the city of Chicago.  But not only do natural gas futures confirm what everyone except climate alarmists already knows about last winter; gas futures also provide evidence about next winter.

Futures traders are highly sophisticated investors who base their trading on all known information.  Unlike those who engage in politicized debate over climate issues – like the president this week in his hapless attempt to shore up support for more Solyndra-style spending – futures traders care only about the facts.  When they are right about the facts, they stand to make a great deal of money.  When they are wrong, they lose big.  Consequently, futures trading is one of the most reliable indicators on climate, crop yield, economic growth, and much else.

It will still be our fault and the solution will be exactly the same as for warming too.... more powerful governments, less prosperous people

I keep wondering if it’s even worth it to talk about this any more.

The “Climate Scientists” - an oxymoron if there ever was one - are doing more to bring the reputation of science down to that of a typical university liberal arts professor than anything else I can think of.

Ruh roo! I guess none of the “geniuses” have ever tried to farm north of the arctic circle huh. Anyone with half a brain should be able to understand that warmer=easier crop production. Colder-————not so much. Keep working on the warming problem and then we can have a real problem with man made glow-bull cooling. Idiots.

Cooling, warming, staying the same; it doesn’t matter. We need less middle class consumers to save the planet...for the elite. Everything they do is designed to reduce the ability of the common man to live comfortably. They desire a short, difficult life for us where we work as slaves and die before we stop being productive.

I have been a little ticked at the number of times global warming is mentioned in connection with particular events when there is no association even reasoned.

Now that there is evidence of the OPPOSITE, they CHANGE the words they use to CLIMATE CHANGE.

Professor John Brignell of The City University, London has compiled a list of all the things attributed to global warming, from acne to yellow fever. His list includes contradictory examples such as more and less hurricanes, more and less coral growth, warming and cooling, more and less maple syrup. (Some of the links are not effects, rather actions that people have advocated to halt global warming).

Now a cause can have more than one effect and even opposite effects depending on the conditions, but when a cause is claimed to result in every possible event it cannot true—based on the Law of Non Contradiction.

A theory that explains everything really explains nothing. It is not predictive and it is not falsifiable. If global warming is claimed to cause everything how can it possibly be disproved?

CME Quotes on Natural Gas futures (Henry Hub)

June 2014 $4.446

January 2015 $4.650

The futures aren’t telling me we are going to run out any time soon.

Soon they will have to change the name to "Man Made Climate Confusion." In another 5 years, it will become "Man Made Climate Ambiguity". After that, they will have to drop "Climate" from the name. They can call it "Mad Made Existence". And this too will be a problem we have to solve.

They even tried to blame the cold winter here in Wisconsin on climate change. Imagine...a cold winter in Wisconsin. Why, that’s never happened before. (snicker) There’ a couple of Russky scientists who are predicting climate change, but colder weather. After this last winter (and this cold spring), I think they might be right.

More proof that Global Warming is a religion. You can use the same arguments to prove the existence of God that they do to prove GW. But, they claim that we can’t use that argument for the reasons you listed.

For mid May almost noon, 79deg is pretty good for SFL. But it did just rain, a cold front is crossing the panhandle now.

Bring on the cold weather please!

In the 70s, CO2 caused global cooling, but when it got warmer, CO2 caused global warming.

For the past 18 years the temp has flat liner, but CO2 was blamed for climate change {now called climate disruption} because the is no disputing that the climate does change and there is always some kind of disruption, flood, drought, tornado's etc. which can be blamed on something, since we know that there is no GOD (s/Off), it must be CO2.

Didn't think I needed the S/Off tag but the mods have been overly tough lately.

Yup. May 15th and my lovely is telling me to take a jacket. Normally I would be schvitzing once the garage door opened.

Which means that any deviation from the norm can be claimed to be a crisis. How convenient.

My kids asked me if I believed in climate change. “Sure. You see it every year. Spring to summer to fall to winter.”
