To the Horror of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here
-Forbes ^ | May 26. 2013 | Peter Ferara

Around 1250 A.D., historical records show, ice packs began showing up farther south in the North Atlantic. Glaciers also began expanding on Greenland, soon to threaten Norse settlements on the island. From 1275 to 1300 A.D., glaciers began expanding more broadly, according to radiocarbon dating of plants killed by the glacier growth. The period known today as the Little Ice Age was just starting to poke through.

Summers began cooling in Northern Europe after 1300 A.D., negatively impacting growing seasons, as reflected in the Great Famine of 1315 to 1317. Expanding glaciers and ice cover spreading across Greenland began driving the Norse settlers out. The last, surviving, written records of the Norse Greenland settlements, which had persisted for centuries, concern a marriage in 1408 A.D. in the church of Hvalsey, today the best preserved Norse ruin.

Colder winters began regularly freezing rivers and canals in Great Britain, the Netherlands and Northern France, with both the Thames in London and the Seine in Paris frozen solid annually. The first River Thames Frost Fair was held in 1607. In 1607-1608, early European settlers in North America reported ice persisting on Lake Superior until June. In January, 1658, a Swedish army marched across the ice to invade Copenhagen. By the end of the 17th century, famines had spread from northern France, across Norway and Sweden, to Finland and Estonia.

For year snow, The Oracle of Poodle-Prophecy and his relentless minion of those afflicted with a carbon-paranoia that to them seems the equivalent of cyanide flatulence have been given free reign to do as they have done,please, that is to pontificate about the dangers of global warming to their own political, financial ends not merely with no evidence to prove otherwise but with a shocking encyclopedic-storehouse of data-nothingness, that they've conjured up in a manner that defies every aspect of fairness and honesty.

I say. there ought to be a time limit, even measured in decades. whereby after the time limit has been expired along with the conspiracies they've concocted. they would be required to cease and desist from continuing the promulgation of whatever scientific pet project they've tried getting traction on, after which fines, or devices dedicated to the discouragement of mental-sinkholes like the moon-hoax community from ever harassing peace loving people everywhere. Certainly the question of free speech comes into play but there's got to be a process in which Global Warmers get their say, decades on, and then once the time limit has been reached must forever agree to STFU. Not that it is ever going to happen, especially one written to the absurdities of sarcasm these people tend to emulate.

We need to go back to referring to global warming/global cooling/climate change as “the weather”.

Weather happens. It doesn’t really care what a bunch of puny humans do.
It’s the height of human arrogance to think we are affecting the weather.

You should read the latest headlines over at

to see the massive amount of snow the far NE part of the US and parts of Canada have received in the last day or so.

If fossil fuels really do warm the earth we better start cranking it up because the ice age is coming fast with famines in its wake.

I’m sure that we’re going to see junk science buzzwords “evolve,” buzzwords which are PC excuses to get constitutionally indefensible pork funding.

Global warming -> global climate change -> ?

Nope. The quote is from a long-running advertising campaign by the Western Company of North America. Fort Worth-based and founded by Eddie Chiles --another Texas character -- who, I believe, coined the phrase.

I stand corrected, it was Eddie Chiles! Thanks for the timely correction.

Anecdotal evidence time.

In 2008 we had a once in 300 year ice storm. My 300 year old healthy red oak split down the middle.

2010/2011 we were over 100” of snow fall. Same this year.

I had a frost warning tonight. I usually open my pool beginning of May. It’s still not open.

I live in Arseachusetts.

The amount of carbon based fuels used by a country correlates with the amount of wealth generated. If China, India and other third world countries cut back on carbon based fuels, millions will return to miserable poverty. Famine, political instability and war will follow. There are serious consequences to hysterics dictating policy.

That is why global warming has been renamed ‘climate change.’ With ‘climate change’ you need not have any valid explanation, instead you are always correct.

You should see all the scathing coments from angry liberal global warming believers on that page.
