The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age, according to a large
and compelling body of evidence from within the field of climate science. Many
sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change
indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather
soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions
for the next 100,000 years.
That is the first paragraph in a 3 page story in Pravda. You just have to laugh. Where is the consensus, I thought it was decided the Earth is warming and it's mans fault.
Oh that's right it's not Global Warming anymore it's Climate Change. So make up your mind are we going to burn or freeze. Either way it's all caused by the less than 1% of our bad breath in the atmosphere.
In their 1976 paper Imbrie, Hays, and Shackleton wrote that their own climate
forecasts, which were based on sea-sediment cores and the Milankovich cycles, "…
must be qualified in two ways. First, they apply only to the natural component
of future climatic trends - and not to anthropogenic effects such as those due
to the burning of fossil fuels. Second, they describe only the long-term trends,
because they are linked to orbital variations with periods of 20,000 years and
longer. Climatic oscillations at higher frequencies are not predicted... the
results indicate that the long-term trend over the next 20,000 years is towards
extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation and cooler climate."
1970s the famous American astronomer Carl Sagan and other scientists began
promoting the theory that ‘greenhouse gasses’ such as carbon dioxide, or CO2,
produced by human industries could lead to catastrophic global warming. Since
the 1970s the theory of ‘anthropogenic global warming’ (AGW) has gradually
become accepted as fact by most of the academic establishment, and their
acceptance of AGW has inspired a global movement to encourage governments to
make pivotal changes to prevent the worsening of AGW.
So much for "Consensus", this weekend my girls are very upset because they wanted to go sledding. The "Forecast" was for 6 to 8 inches of snow. Well we got less than a half inch, it didn't even cover the grass on the lawn. Yet 50 years from now unless we kill all the pigs and cows and stop burning everything. Were all gonna cook or freeze.
Tonight's forecast Dark continued dark with widely scattered light at Dawn...LOL
