Beware of global cooling?

Posted by: ST on June 20, 2007 at 10:17 pm

An interesting read from Timothy Patterson, professor and director of the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre, Department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University in Canada.

In a nutshell, he says forget the cries about “warming” – it’s cooling we need to worry about, and that it’s solar output – not man – which spurs climate change.

  1. I saw that article earlier. Would that be the inconvenient truth Al Bore, er Gore was yammering about?

    The “Deniers” series that the National Post of Canada has been running is actually quite good. Each one has covered a different heresy as defined by the Church of Global Warming and Discount Carbon Credit Outlet. Glad to see the referenced article has the links to all the previous chapters.

    Right. It was a 30 year cooling cycle that had all the same Chicken Little types screaming shrilly about the predicted “Coming Ice Age” in the mid-70’s… :-?

    Here’s another expert. Add him to the growing ‘consensus’.

    We Humans can’t control the climate of this lovely Planet we have been blessed to live on; but we sure can start wars over who gets to live what lifestyle and where. Frequent-flyer Algore has done alot of harm.

    This is just too funny

    The cooling may actually begin with this new solar cycle.

    If true we could see back to back solar irradiance downturn allowing the planets climate to be in a cooling trend..

    Maybe similar to the Hickson cooling decade of the early 1820’s?

    The Satellite data shows that NO warming since 2003.
