The Global Cooling Evidence – Read It.

I am not being hypocritical with the previous post on the cancellation of the Giro D’Italia, I am not citing obscure anecdotes of cold weather. There has been year after year of freezing cold winters in the northern hemisphere. It’s getting bleeding obvious. (the sthn. hemisphere is mostly ocean – heats and cools more slowly than the huge landmasses in nth. – geography 101)

We cannot predict global temperature yet, but we do know that it does cycle between warm and cold periods and we are now obviously in a hiatus following a warm period after the “little ice age”.

This excellent article, which cites the evidence, points out that it seems a good bet that global temperature will now fall.

To the Horror of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here

Capture-1” …The 20 to 30 year ocean temperature cycles turned back to warm from the late 1970s until the late 1990s, which is the primary reason that global temperatures warmed during this period. But that warming ended 15 years ago, and global temperatures have stopped increasing since then, if not actually cooled, even though global CO2 emissions have soared over this period. As The Economist magazine reported in March, “The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO2 put there by humanity since 1750.” Yet, still no warming during that time. That is because the CO2 greenhouse effect is weak and marginal compared to natural causes of global temperature changes.

At first the current stall out of global warming was due to the ocean cycles turning back to cold. But something much more ominous has developed over this period. Sunspots run in 11 year short term cycles, with longer cyclical trends of 90 and even 200 years. The number of sunspots declined substantially in the last 11 year cycle, after flattening out over the previous 20 years. But in the current cycle, sunspot activity has collapsed. NASA’s Science News report for January 8, 2013 states,

“Indeed, the sun could be on the threshold of a mini-Maunder event right now. Ongoing Solar Cycle 24 [the current short term 11 year cycle] is the weakest in more than 50 years. Moreover, there is (controversial) evidence of a long-term weakening trend in the magnetic field strength of sunspots. Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory predict that by the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives, magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed. Independent lines of research involving helioseismology and surface polar fields tend to support their conclusion.”

That is even more significant because NASA’s climate science has been controlled for years by global warming hysteric James Hansen, who recently announced his retirement.

But this same concern is increasingly being echoed worldwide… “

What has been now proven is that “Climate Change”, during a period of dramatic fossil fuel burning, was not discernible above natural variation and has been neutralised by “natural forcings”, if it even existed at all.
