Global cooling… who knew?

The idea that the science is settled on anthropogenic global warming seems ever further from the truth after a report this weekend in the UK’s Daily Mail gave us global warming sceptics more reason to doubt the climate change industry’s “consensus.”

In past months, serious doubt has been cast on the veracity of reports published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and articles in the Financial Post by Lawrence Soloman have suggested a CERN experiment overturns global-warming orthodoxy.

Now, according to the piece in the Daily Mail, new temperature data shows the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years, and, in fact, we could even be heading for a mini ice age like the one in the 17th Century. These data were reportedly based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations and were released last week by the Met Office—the UK’s National Weather Service—and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit.

Scientific evidence is accumulating that suggests climate change models attach too much significance to CO2 and not enough to water cycles and the sun’s activities. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, for example, has used its high-energy physics accelerator to study atmospheric and climate science, and the results of its experiment seem likely to validate the hypothesis that cosmic rays and the sun hold the key to understanding global warming.

Pål Brekke, senior adviser at the Norwegian Space Centre and former NASA scientist, has said that some scientists found the importance of water cycles difficult to accept, because doing so means admitting that the oceans, not CO2, caused much of the global warming between 1970 and 1997.

The Earth’s climate has been fluctuating since its creation, and there is no reason to expect that will stop any time soon. It is high time we began to rethink our response to global-warming and resist the push for government regulations and, of course, the billion-dollar wealth transfers to poorer nations to pay for the whole thing.

  1. Yep, I felt the cooling system (air) since the 'supposed' summer time.
    Now that we are cooling and homes need heating oil etc how can the enviro freaks ever supply such oil to these homes after their demand to shut down tankards, oilsands and pipelines all in from/in which carries oil. I wonder if Elizabeth May, Megan Leslie etc plan to use (the unknown not built yet green energy )to keep warm and whereabouts are those green energies.

    1. Well if they volunteer their names we can shut off their oil supply.Think they believe in this fraud strongly enough to freeze their families to death.??But you know the carbon footprint for the warmist,s.Will we still have to pay for our footprint,s we leave in the snow.When will these fraudsters be brought to justice and jailed.KING GORE,Suzuki,Dion,and the famous green party leader what,s her name.They should all be locked up and throw the key away.They have wrecked nations and starved million,s of poor people with their fraudulent scheme.They should not be allowed to get away with it.And i did not forget your windmill madness McGuinty,you should be the first one into the jail.

  2. I knew I been telling people for the last 12 years that it looked like the earth was getting colder but yet people still bought into that kyoto Crap and recycle crap. just think we wasted all this money on enviromental studies and recycling that we never had to do except Cities made them into Bi-laws now to.

  3. That Daily Mail article is interesting. Predictably, the comment thread is full of ranting AGW true believers:)

    But it seems that even some true believers are starting to admit that there may be an up-side to the otherwise dreaded CO2 induced global warming: it might forstall the onset of the next ice age.

    I fantasize that they'll soon start cheering for more atmospheric CO2 and that our government(s) will climb off the AGW bandwagon.

  4. The global warminst argument is not truly about the global warming threat. If it was, David Suzuki they would be leading his followers by shouting in the streets with great relief that the sea levels are not going to rise.
