We Are Going To Miss Global Warming

Published by at 12:53 pm under All General Discussions,Global Warming

While Al Gore and his puppets do their Chicken Little dance about Global Warming, real scientists are focusing on the Sun – which has more to do with our climate than the 3% of the Green House effect caused by C02. The vast majority of the Green House effect is from H20 – water – which no one in the nutty Global Warming crowd has yet proposed to reduce on planet earth (which truly would be a herculean effort). That is why 10% drops to a gas that represents only a fraction of the challenge is not going to impact our Global temperature.

However, the Sun does and it is possibly heading into one of its infamous Maunder Minimums which is directly linked to global Ice Ages:

Solar activity fluctuates in an 11-year cycle. But so far in this cycle, the sun has been disturbingly quiet. The lack of increased activity could signal the beginning of what is known as a Maunder Minimum, an event which occurs every couple of centuries and can last as long as a century.

Such an event occurred in the 17th century. The observation of sunspots showed extraordinarily low levels of magnetism on the sun, with little or no 11-year cycle.

This solar hibernation corresponded with a period of bitter cold that began around 1650 and lasted, with intermittent spikes of warming, until 1715. Frigid winters and cold summers during that period led to massive crop failures, famine and death in Northern Europe.

Tapping reports no change in the sun’s magnetic field so far this cycle and warns that if the sun remains quiet for another year or two, it may indicate a repeat of that period of drastic cooling of the Earth, bringing massive snowfall and severe weather to the Northern Hemisphere.

That period mentioned in the article is known as the Little Ice Age, which is when all this Global Warming started. Does this mean we will all be asked to increase our carbon foot prints as a buffer against the coming cold? Here is a little known fact for those suspicious of the man-made Global Warming panic:

For instance, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Solar Research in Germany report the sun has been burning more brightly over the last 60 years, accounting for the 1 degree Celsius increase in Earth’s temperature over the last 100 years.

I doubt we can ‘turn down’ the Sun! One thing is for sure, if these folks are right we will be missing these sunny warm years – desperately missing them. The impact on food production will be epic in nature.

    When all the global arming hysteria started , I’ll never forget that there was one lone Russian scientist who came out and said that not only were we not headed into a global warming disaster; but, he predicted we would soon be heading into a global cooling period (and, I think he even he even placed a bet on it). I’m beginning to think it may have already started.

    Gateway Pundit has a series of articles:

    I hate to show my computer ignorace; but, I would surely like to stop annoying you guys…..

    can someone tell me how to show a clickable in the comments section rather than the link? Thanks.

    I think that the planet goes through all sorts of natural changes, warming and cooling. It always has.

    But I also think that it is possible that man made factors might have some effect as well, by exacerbating a natural process.

    As more and more people progress in the future, we do need to think about finding different kinds of energy. I was reading the other day that the Chinese are having so many problems with pollution and smog that there is concern over the Olympics. There are days when visibility is actually effected with all the crap in the atmosphere.

    So, while I do think that politics has more to do with a lot of the current global warming debate than science does, I also think we can not just ignore emissions. This is not going to go away.

    Nuclear power, conservation, hybrids, and more need to be considered in the future. Besides, wouldn’t it be nice if we could tell those people in the Middle East that we can live without their oil. I know that might be a dream, but it is a nice one.

    Do this: high light word or link here

    does that make sense?

    just remember start with and then the name

    You need to make sure you close the tags or else you can hose the site. I can fix it, but we have a bug that makes editing get all screwy.

    In the following example replace the “(” and “)” with “< " and ">” and it should work – but pasting links is fine too!

    (a href=”linkURL”)words you want(/a)

    My post did not turn out like I thought it would. No help at all.

    Aj’s explanation was better.

    I bet you could find a site on line that would help too.

    Thanks. I’ll try it the next time.

    Back in the 1980’s, after they realized their Revolution which started in the 60’s had failed, the millitant (communist) activists from the anti war and Civil rights movements regrouped and decided on the ‘Environment” as the cause under which they could unite people to do their dirty work, ie: overthrow the government and set up at “Socialist Paradise.” They chose the environment because just about everyone had some big nasty in their area which was dumping noxous stuff in their drinking water or spewing contaminated smoke and debris into the air they breathed, or otherwise messing up their habitats. Since the late 1980’s these people have been turning out pseudo scientific reports about eminent “life threatening” catastrophes such as the Alar in the Apples, second hand smoke, green house gasses, etc. Most of their proof was made up and presented as true science and gullible citizens believed every bit of it and, as expected, demanded government enforced “CHANGE.” So now we have more socialist programs, government regulation of everything we do and what we think, dependence on our enemies for our energy needs. our manufacturing base and most good paying jobs have fled our over regulated shores, Our taxes are sky high to support entitlement welfare and social programs for the whole world, Our borders are porous and illegal aliens are pouring in like vultures to pick over our remains,. It looks like these people have been successful in destroying our government because our money is now worthless, inflation is double digit in the grocery stores. (but not in the CPI), Everybody is humped over from carrying all the guilt that has been heaped on them, Our country has fallen behind once thirld world countries in Scientific achievements, inventions, and other high tech activity because the lesser qualified are now running things thanks to affirmative action which redressed past discrimination against those who would not, or could not, excell by compelling that they be chosen before more qualified applicants for everything from teaching positions, college admittance, Corp. Board positions, and everything else that was once reserved for the best and brightest, many of whom, by the way, have made jobs for themselves by forming companies that care for pets. maintain landscaping, provide janitorial service, etc. In addition, they have banned Christianity , common sense morality, and God from our lives, introduced perversion and immorality into our education system as children are taught that it is all right to take candy from strangers because mommy and daddy are bigots, racists and homophobes, and it’s perfectly normal to “hook up” as soon as you can find a willing partner. Our little girls now dress and act like sluts and whores and are clandestinly escorted to abortion clinics without parental knowledge if they screw up and forget their birth control, which is now provided in the public schools.

    Does anyone doubt that the malcontents from the 60’s have won? They have destroyed our country. We now have presidential candidates vieing to see how much free stuff they can give out to those who demand “Economic Justice” brought about by taking from those who work and giving to those who kiss up to the successful candidates. The only things is…While they have dumbed down our citizens, taught them to line up for their freebies, and develop a “get it, let Willie build it” attitude our enemies are growing in strength, and are circling like vultures to finish us off.

    These Socialist/Communist know it alls, who are always reminding us it’s our “Christian duty” to do what they think is best, aren’t going to be strong enough to protect themselves, much less the rest of us, when the hawks see that we are vulnerable and swoop down for the kill.

    I was on the board of directors of one of the National “Environmental” organizations when the decision was made to zero in on the “Environment” as the cause to unite the masses to demand “Change”. All national dissident groups are working for the same cause. They all know global warming is a hoax and laugh behind the scenes at how gullible people are to believe it. But don’t think for a minute that if we enter into a new ice age, they won’t figure out a way to blame it on the US, and the public will beleive them and keep on following them, like a bunch of lemmings , over the clift. Have a nice day.
