Scientific Community Plagued by Western Self-Loathing (why 'Intellectuals' Dig Climate Catastrophe)
Breitbart London ^ | 20 Apr 2014 | David Archibald

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long.

A decade ago there was a wide range of predictions from the solar physics community about how strong the current cycle, No 24, would be. One list of 45 predictions ranged from a sunspot number of 50 at the low end to 190 at the high end. Strangely, the climate science community at the time had no interest in what the Sun might do.

The predictions at the low end were correct. It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate forward beyond a hundred years.

I was a foot soldier in the solar science trench of the global warming battle. But that battle is only a part of the much larger culture wars. ... The forces of darkness are now conducting a fighting retreat in the global warming battle but they have been winning the culture wars, even to the extent of being able to steal from the future.

With the scientific battle over global warming won, the only thing that remained to be done was to shoot the wounded. ...

Those who believe in nothing will believe in anything. Those in science whom have given up Christianity because “it is not scientific” have never studied the role of Christianity in spreading education and the study of science and that science is totally compatible with Christianity.

The global warming controversy has surprisingly little to do with science. It is about power and it gives governments a rational reason for absolute autocracy. They must control our every action and every thought so they can reduce the population and “save us” from a catastrophe that will end most life on earth. Anyhow, that’s the rational.

David Archibald is great although heavily committed to the global cooling idea. If he is right we are screwed. Hopefully he is not or not completely right.

Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future.

What's interesting, is that when cycle 23 was coming to a close, NASA predicted that cycle 24 would begin at the expected 11 year point, and be extremely strong. The sun didn't cooperate, however, and there were an additional 3 or 4 years before cycle 24 began. Watching the graphs put out each year by NASA was amusing, because they kept having to push the start date forward, when the cycle didn't begin.

When cycle 24 DID begin, it did so slowly, and was extremely minimal. Because of this, scientists who were NOT part of the Global Warming crowd predicted several years of global cold, and that has been borne out.

Even today, several years into Cycle 24, the sunspot cycle is very weak. Yes, at some point, the sunspots will return, and we will have some Global Warming again, but there is no guarantee about when that will occur, and humans will have had absolutely NOTHING to do with it.

Just like with Obamacare, this is not about health nor science, this is not about ambulances and fire trucks with lights on, this is about police urgency and jack booted brutality in the manner of taxing and enslaving.

They dig their Hitler uniform. For them Science has to don a government uniform.

And this is notwithstanding the debauchery of science with narcotic perversion

The solution to global cooling of the 1970s and global warming of the 1990s and climate change of 2010s is the same - fascism, rationing, denial of freedom and even democracy, all in the name of saving the earth.

Look up Maunder Minimum. Started the Little Ice Age and resembles what we are going through now. We are 13,500 years past the end of the last glacial period (the ice age hasn’t ended, it just pauses for about 10,000 years every hundred thousand years or so). We are past due for a return of the real thing. Yes, hope it doesn’t happen during our (or our childrens’) lifetimes.

This whole global warming thing reminds me of the extinctions at the K/T boundary.

Before finding a lot of big holes in the ground all grouped around the same time period every idiotic theory found some credence.

After the big holes were found the idiot theory guys screamed and hollered and kicked their heels, just like my grandkids did when caught screwing up or not getting their way.

Old Bill Occam had it right the simplest answer is best and if these morons crawled out of their Universities darkened Halls and looked at that yellow thing in the sky they might gain a clue, end rant.

I was half-way expecting my name at the bottom of your post! Yes - we are past due. And agreed, as much as I’d like to shut the “warmist’s” up - we’d all be too worried foraging for food and fighting over the last bit of habitable land.

RE Climate Change (Global Warming)

>> so many in the scientific community have been perverted by a self-loathing for Western civilisation

Dogma of the Skank Whores.

global warming is a hoax democrats create to grow socialism and enslave us

If you made $100,000 per year after taxes then you could buy anything you could ever need in the free market because someone would produce it for money( look at the millions of products for sale on Google , internet , ebay , amazon,Walmart, Dollar Tree etc etc). So we don’t need government for ANYTHING. A private company created a whole city DISNEY WORLD in Florida. So democrats create fake crisis like “global warming”,”no health insurance crisis” to justify the very existence of government and the continued growth of government(socialism)

government is the enemy and the problem. the news media and democrat party are also the enemy and the problem

I’m proud to be a climate denier : come and get me you communist Obama and communist democrats
