Big Chill: ‘Substantial Cooling’ Predicted Within The Next Few Years

Watts Up With That?

La Niña expected to contribute

From the Daily Star, 14 August 2016

Climate boffins believe the UK’s topsy-turvy climate is in for a chilly twist within the next few years as three major forms of climate change trigger “substantial cooling”.

lan-nina-forecast
Drastic changes in ocean conditions, greenhouse gases and a weakening of the sun threaten increasingly worsening winters of blistering blizzards and severe snowstorms for years to come.
This cocktail of climate threats, paired with “hasty climate policies”, could mean “rolling blackouts” in the UK over the next few years, plunging the country into long period of darkness.
These “worse case scenario” climate threats will hit the elderly hardest, leaving “some pensioners alone in the dark” on a freezing nights resigned to a “lonely death”.

Deadliest 15 Floods In History Occurred With CO2 Below 350 PPM

Real Science

Obama says that floods are getting worse due to global warming, but as is always the case, he has absolutely no clue what he is talking about. A storm surge in the year 1530 killed more than 1,000 times as many people as Sandy’s storm surge.

Extreme Weather: A Guide & Record Book – Christopher C. Burt – Google Books

On Memorial Day eighty years ago, Texas received twenty-two inches of rain in less than three hours – the world record. CO2 was 304 PPM at the time.

Climate experts tell us that much less intense rainfalls this year in Texas are caused by 400 PPM CO2. Because they are clowns, not scientists.

Global Sea Ice Area Up 700,000 km^2 Over Past Decade

Real Science

The area of sea ice on Earth has increased 700,000 km² over the past decade. This is the exact opposite of both expert forecasts, and current claims made by experts – who lack in both competence and honesty.

Worst drought in California history? Not really…

Excellent PMD historical drought comparison via Steven Goddard (Real Science):

US Drought Near An Historic Low

Climate experts tell us that the US is experiencing a near unprecedented drought, when in fact it is the exact opposite. US drought coverage is near historic lows.

Is it true that we are in the worst drought in California history? Let’s look at the facts for the last 120 years (1895 to present).

As shown in this chart from the Western Regional Climate Center website (http://www.wrcc.dri.edu) — this is not even the 2nd driest water year for California in the last 120 years.

The driest year was 1924 (9.23 inches, or 40% of normal). The current water year (October 2013 through September 2014) ranks as the 3rd driest in the last 120 years (at 52% of normal).

As for the claim that this is the worst multi-year drought in California history – look at the period of 1910-40 on the WRCC chart. Wow… that was really a dry 30 year period.

New paper shows Medieval Warm Period was global in scope

Watts Up With That?

Andrew Revkin writes:

Michael Mann can’t be happy about this work.

Here’s a chat with two authors of an important new Science paper examining 10,000 years of layered fossil plankton in the western Pacific Ocean. The paper finds that several significant past climate ups and downs — including the medieval warm period and little ice age — were global in scope, challenging some previous conclusions that these were fairly limited Northern Hemisphere phenomena.

Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

The climate is changing, but it’s not changing the way climate change crowd predicted it would. Nature has made a mockery of global warming, so who are the real climate deniers?

2013 witnessed a score of Clitanic events that didn’t quite go the way the man-made Global Warming protagonists would have liked them to…

(for more climate indicators see : State Of The Climate Report)

2014 hasn’t been a kind start either, with the “Polar Vortex” putting much of the Northern Hemisphere into a deep freeze, causing the public to question, with reason, the validity of the “catastrophic global warming” theory.

Many leading climate scientists have been warning that a dramatic shift to a colder climate may be upon us and cooling could continue at least until 2030. Others are less optimistic, claiming the predicted cooling phase could last until the end of the century, as the planet transitions into another Little Ice Age, or worse.

Studies cite the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)  moving into “cool” or “negative” phase that flipped in 1998, around the time atmospheric temperatures went into “Pause” mode.

Numerous other studies, that not only confirm the observed ‘Climate Shift’ but have also predicted it, centre around that big yellow fireball in the sky – a natural climate variable that the IPCC and the warmist community of scientists discount as having anything to do with global climate change. “It’s all CO2” they cry, seemingly unaware that CO² has done nothing to change the temperature of the globe over the past 17 years, despite 35% of all human CO² emissions, since 1751, emitted over the same period.

CO² certainly didn’t drive climate change in the past, as Vostok ice cores and numerous studies prove unequivocally. So why would it drive climate change now? Other than because Al Gore’s “political propaganda” film told us so.

Enter a brilliant summary from CBN senior writer Dale Herd who examines the climate shift, not only in global temperatures, but also in the science and understating of the climate change debate, within a planet that clearly isn’t warming at all…

Global Cooling : Is an Ice Age Coming?

By Dale Hurd, CBN News Sr. Reporter

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — It wasn’t supposed to happen: a ship full of scientists and environmentalists sent to the Antarctic to find melting ice from global warming got stuck in frozen ice from fearsome cold.

Then, the rescue ship got stuck in the ice, too.

Critics liken the incident to the climate change movement itself: stuck in denial over the fact that the climate is not getting warmer but seems to be getting much colder.

The climate is changing, but it’s not changing the way climate change crowd predicted it would. Nature has made a mockery of global warming, so who are the real climate deniers?

Ice is not only growing in the South Pole, but in parts of the North Pole, too. And the coldest arctic temperatures in decades have descended upon North America.

But that didn’t stop Greenpeace from trying to scare children last month with a video of a sweaty, beleaguered Santa Claus threatening to call off Christmas because the North Pole is melting.

Global Cooling

The fact that Arctic ice is growing may not be the good news that it seems to be. There are signs that the Earth is entering a very unpleasant cooling period. Sunspot activity remains very low.

“The sun has been very unusual for almost 15 years now,” Jens Pedersen, senior scientist at the Denmark’s Technical University, said.

Pedersen said the sun recently reached solar maximum and that there should be a lot of sunspot activity, but there isn’t.

“We have to go back 100 years to find a solar maximum that was as weak as the one we are in right now,” he told CBN News. “And the recent solar minimum…one has to go back 200 years to find one that was as weak.”

The last time the sun was this quiet, North America and Europe suffered through a weather event from the 1600s to the 1800s known as “Little Ice Age,” when the Thames River in London regularly froze solid, and North America saw terrible winters. Crops failed and people starved.

Hiding the Evidence

Pedersen said climate scientists know the Earth stopped warming 15 years ago. But the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of which Pedersen is an expert reviewer, suppressed a recent report from its own scientists that the U.N.’s climate model has been proven wrong.

“In particular one of the issues has been why global warming has stopped during the last 15 years, and climate scientists were very frank that the climate models do not match the climate we observe,” Pedersen said.

But politicians removed that embarrassing finding from the final draft.  It’s as if the alleged danger from climate change can’t be wrong because it is now too important.

It has become a political movement, a cash cow for climate scientists and environmental groups, and a way for world leaders to control economies and people.

“It’s a political agenda,” Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, said. “When you look at what the government will be able to do with climate change, it gives them (access) into every aspect of our lives.”

A Case of Climatism

Steve Goreham, author of The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism, calls it “climatism.”

“It’s an ideology and it’s a belief that man-made greenhouse gases are destroying Earth’s climate,” Goreham explained. “But it has become a path for global change across the world for adopting green economies and electric cars and putting wind turbines everywhere and changing light bulbs.”

And it doesn’t matter how much the climate change prophets of doom get it wrong. Global warming advocate Al Gore claimed all the ice in the Arctic would be melted by now – but it’s growing.

Others predicted a shrinking food supply and flooded coastlines. Hurricane Sandy and Typhoon Haiyan are said to be the result of climate change. But that ignores the fact that worse tropical cyclones occurred in the 1960s.

Nevertheless, the climate change agenda is moving forward. The world is already spending at least $250 billion a year on it, and environmentalists want more. Activists are demanding what they call “climate justice” from developed nations.

“What they really want to do is dump trillions into it, somewhere between one and three percent of global GDP,” Gainor said.

Throwing the Poor Under the Bus?

Climate change skeptics have been censored and compared to Holocaust deniers and even child molesters. But forgotten in all the effort to save the world from warming is the effect on the world’s poor.

Goreham said more than a billion people do not have access to electricity, and almost as many struggle with unreliable power. Cheap electricity from coal could be a savior for the world’s poor.

But the world’s wealthy nations don’t want them to have it, all in the name of saving the planet from a crisis that mounting evidence suggests is non-existent.

It’s known by climatologists as the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period in the 1600s when harsh winters across the UK and Europe were often severe.

The severe cold went hand in hand with an exceptionally inactive sun, and was called the Maunder solar minimum.

Now a leading scientist from Reading University has told me that the current rate of decline in solar activity is such that there’s a real risk of seeing a return of such conditions.

I’ve been to see Professor Mike Lockwood to take a look at the work he has been conducting into the possible link between solar activity and climate patterns.

According to Professor Lockwood the late 20th century was a period when the sun was unusually active and a so called ‘grand maximum’ occurred around 1985.

Since then the sun has been getting quieter.
