After all the hoopla about man-caused global warming we are now learning that in reality the earth's surface is actually getting colder. Yes, colder! According to British scientists, Atlantic currents will have a cooling effect. This phenomenon is not limited to the Atlantic. Cooling Pacific currents have already been reported and the result is that experts expect a decrease in the temperature of the earth's surface until around the year 2015. Of course, some of the people who are reporting these facts are avid global warming fans and they are desperate that we do not draw the obvious conclusion that their favorite fantasy has been exposed for the foolishness it is. So they warn us that we need to keep with the program of crippling the US economy in search of a reduction in greenhouse gasses to save the planet.
But their own data show that temperatures have varied constantly over time and continue to do so. The earth warms and the earth cools-and it has little or nothing to do with human activity. Remember that as recently as 1975 there was deep concern that the earth was cooling so much that scientists warned of a new ice age! Similar patterns of heating and cooling have been traced on other planets. For example, in recent times Jupiter has heated up and the last time anyone checked there were no little men in SUVs polluting the atmosphere there!
There's even worse news for Al Gore and his global warming crowd. Consider the following Fox News report: "There is word that all four major global temperature tracking outlets have released data showing that temperatures have dropped significantly over the last year. California meteorologist Anthony Watts says the amount of cooling ranges from 65-hundredths of a degree Centigrade to 75-hundreds of a degree. That is said to be a value large enough to erase nearly all the global warming recorded over the past 100 years. It is reportedly the single fastest temperature change ever recorded - up or down. Some scientists contend the cooling is the result of reduced solar activity - which they say is a larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases."
Let that sink in: the natural cooling that has taken place over the last year alone has nothing to do with human efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses. It is the result of reduced solar activity and even Al Gore, famously willing to lay dubious claim to many accomplishments, cannot really believe that he has had anything to do with that! Furthermore, one year's natural cooling is large enough to wipe out a century of global warming.Some time ago I reported that the founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, has floated the idea that since it is impossible to get a fair hearing or an informed debate in academic or political circles, we should launch a court case against Al Gore and company in the hope that a competent court could provide a platform for an enlightening probe of the evidence on all sides of the question. People have donated money to fund such a case and others are gung-ho for the idea. Coleman is said to be mulling over the possibility. If the case ever gets to court, they'd better have the heat turned up for by all accounts the temperature around them will be a little colder!
