30 Years of Global Cooling Are Coming, Leading Scientist Says

From Miami to Maine, Savannah to Seattle, America is caught in an icy grip that one of the U.N.'s top global warming proponents says could mark the beginning of a mini ice age.

From Miami to Maine, Savannah to Seattle, America is caught in an icy grip that one of the U.N.'s top global warming proponents says could mark the beginning of a mini ice age.

Oranges are freezing and millions of tropical fish are dying in Florida, and it could be just the beginning of a decades-long deep freeze, says Professor Mojib Latif, one of the world's leading climate modelers.

Latif thinks the cold snap Americans have been suffering through is only the beginning. He says we're in for 30 years of cooler temperatures -- a mini ice age, he calls it, basing his theory on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the world's oceans.

Latif, a professor at the Leibniz Institute at Germany's Kiel University and an author of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, believes the lengthy cold weather is merely a pause -- a 30-years-long blip -- in the larger cycle of global warming, which postulates that temperatures will rise rapidly over the coming years.

At a U.N. conference in September, Latif said that changes in ocean currents known as the North Atlantic Oscillation could dominate over manmade global warming for the next few decades. Latif said the fluctuations in these currents could also be responsible for much of the rise in global temperatures seen over the past 30 years.

Don't worry, algore. Your scam is still safe:

Latif...believes the lengthy cold weather is merely a pause -- a 30-years-long blip -- in the larger cycle of global warming, which postulates that temperatures will rise rapidly over the coming years.

I, for one, was hoping Al Gore was right because I was looking forward to some beach front property with a nice 85 degree November here in PA.

I predict 6 months of cooling followed by 6 months of warming followed by six months of cooling followed by 6 months of warming . . .

Where were the global warming "scientists" who were forecasting this 30-year cooling period before it began? The answer, of course, is that there were none. This cooling trend has caught them completely by surprise, which should cast considerable doubt on their predictions of global warming, global cooling, or global anything. They just jump on the bandwagon once a surprise trend occurs and presume to explain the reason for it. What ridiculous fools they are.

Perfectly put. Science is very important, and we should all value it and respect it. But when obviously biased, agenda-driven refugees from the hippie movement with climatology degrees start venturing into the "Nostradamus" realm of predicting natural events having to do with an extremely complex planetary system (the climate) that we don't yet fully understand, it's time to practice some healthy skepticism.

The solution to this cooling crisis is clear. We need to limit carbon emissions; raise energy taxes, drive hybrid cars, and enact cap and trade.

Ah well... this tells it all...

German Professor Mojib Latif, one of many second generation Muslims born to immigrants in Kiel, is well known to students at the university as a fan of the hookah for consumption of his favorite 'honey oil' - in other words, highly refined hash, or kief. Parties held at his house feature arrays of elaborate multi-hose 'shishe' (water pipes) to provide the 'necessary warm atmosphere.'

In a word - this guy is 'hosed' in more than one way... LOL.

Climate science isn’t science. If it were, then I would welcome 30 years of climate studies. As it is, all climate departmments should be dismissed. They simply can’t be trusted. And to the honest ones, if there are any, your colleagues have destroyed your field. We can’t do any real climate research until all of this generation is dead.

I expect they’ll turn the greenhouse gas thing on its head again. Remember, the greenhouse gasses were originally going to shade the earth like the smoke from a volcano and cause horrible winter. Then when it got warmer, they turned it around and claimed that it was trapping the heat in. Now they’ll switch back. That’s my guess.

I saw another possible shift the other day - fresh water shortages.

The agenda will remain the same - control of the population, energy usage, global government, etc.

They’ll just have to find another excuse to force it on us.

Why don’t scientists stick with trying to get the 5 day weather forecast right more often than make silly predictions like these?

He's merely stating the obvious: "He told the Daily Mail that 'a significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 to 2000 and at earlier periods in the 20th Century was due to these cycles...'"

Don Easterbrook’s AGU paper on potential global cooling

The Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age are well known examples of such climate changes, but in addition, at least 23 periods of climatic warming and cooling have occurred in the past 500 years. Each period of warming or cooling lasted about 25-30 years (average 27 years). Two cycles of global warming and two of global cooling have occurred during the past century, and the global cooling that has occurred since 1998 is exactly in phase with the long term pattern. Global cooling occurred from 1880 to ~1915; global warming occurred from ~1915 to ~1945; global cooling occurred from ~1945-1977;, global warming occurred from 1977 to 1998; and global cooling has occurred since 1998.

I wish I could remember the source that showed the various news outfits of the times hyping each potential disaster of impending warming and cooling.

Obviously this is intended to give the tyrants 30 years of cover, and to be able to say that the freeze that we’ve been in for the last 30 years is all part of global warming!

Well, this one isn't all that silly, it's based on historical events, not computer models (except those used to analyze the historical pattern, but those don't generally require any physics, nor any particular assumptions.

However my take on the historical data is that if we get 30 years of cooling at this point in the longer cycle, we might get 30,000 years of cold.

Note on graph presentation: The heavier temperature lines 160,000 BP to present reflect more data points for this time period, not necessarily greater temperature variability.

Notice that "now" is at a peak, one that is somewhat delayed compared to the previous ones. (IOW, based on the historical pattern, we're overdue for a Really Big Chill. A 30 year cooling caused by factors other than those that cause the long cycles, could push us over the edge.

I just hope San Antonio is far enough south, at least for the next 20 or 25 years, after which, I'm not likely to care much, although my kids and grand-kids would. :)

The orange ball in the sky has everything to do with the weather and it is it that has cycles

Old Sol does have his cycles, being a variable star, if not very much so. However, the orbit of the earth about his fires also has cycles. They are likely just as important for the long term effects. Plus there are other effects which seem related to the solar system's passage though the galaxy.
