Science disproves global warming
by Dick Little
We have not heard much about global warming lately. Politicians and social engineers are no longer urging us to prepare for the worst. Self-proclaimed climate scientist, Al Gore has been silent. What's happening here?
Canadian columnist, Lorne Gunter, has been following this story closely. In Canada, unlike the United States, there's still some honest journalism being practiced. Gunter is skeptical of the theory. His anti-global warming data has been widely distributed north of our border.
He also notes scientists who don't believe the theory is correct are having difficulty being heard in Canada, but it's not as bad there as it is here. The opposition south of the Canadian border, is led primarily by social scientists who are using the issue to influence our thinking and our lives. Even the newspapers appear to be fearful of this group, who can rally students to protest at a moment's notice.
Gunter says Canadian newspapers are actually publishing information that dispute the theory that we, and the rest of this nation, are responsible for warming because we drive cars that produce the CO2 that allegedly contributes to global warming.
The number of global warming skeptics is expanding, largely because new data shows temperatures are not going up, but rather, " they're coming down!"
For instance, on Sept. 5 scientists in Southern Brazil reported, " their heaviest snowfalls ever! They are entering what has turned out to be their coldest September in a century." It seems something called the, "Pacific Decadal Oscillation" has a lot to do with these phenomena.
This information comes from Brazilian Climatologist, Eugene Hackbart. He says, "El Niño's produce warmer climates, while El Nina's produce cooler climates."
Hackbart further points out periods of solar inactivity known as "solar minimums" magnify cold spells on the South American continent. According to Gunter, American scientist, Dr. Craig Locehle, who conducts modeling on global climate change, confirmed the findings, " the so-called Medieval Warm Period of about 1,000 years ago did in fact exist and was even warmer than 20th century temperatures."
New research confirms the warm period of 1,000 years ago produced temperatures higher than today's temperatures. The conclusion, confirmed by tree rings, lake and ocean floor sediment, ice cores, and early records written on climate, particularly in Northern Europe. Remember, there were no vehicles to create tons of hydrocarbons at that time.
This was the period when Leif Erickson and other Danish seafaring adventurers, discovered Greenland, Iceland, and Vineland, which is now part of Canada and the north eastern tip of the United States.
Gunter claims supporters of the Kyoto conference, which forecast global warming as a "threat" to our existence, had to bury information on the Medieval Warm Period in order to obtain credibility. That's a serious accusation.
Western Washington University geologist, Don Easterbrook says today's warm temperatures will drop, and we will enter a period of "global cooling," as the Sun enters a particularly inactive phase."
In addition, Easterbrook says he's studied temperatures and climate back 400 years and has found, "an almost exact correlation between climate fluctuations and solar energy received on Earth."
He believes there is virtually no correlation with increased hydrocarbons in the atmosphere and global warming (sometimes referred to as "climate change," a term now used by the press).
Also involved in this research are scientists, Dr. David Douglass of the University of Rochester and Dr. John Christy of the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Last month they dealt global warming enthusiasts a stunning blow when they produced data that shows hydrocarbons produced by humans are not behind any warming of the Earth's atmosphere.
In a joint statement the two scientists concluded, " variations in global temperatures since 1978 cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide." These two scientists have been working together to produce a paper using data from weather satellites. They reportedly measured 300,000 temperature readings around the globe, and conceded our hydrocarbons may have a "slight impact, (but) variations in global temperatures since 1978 cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide."
In addition, their chart shows rising temperatures beginning in 1979 - have all but disappeared, largely due to reduced solar activity. Now, you would think the press would report on these investigations to balance what appears to be propaganda from the pro-global warming crowd including Gore, but it's not happening.
Gore has been silent about, climate change lately and the press certainly is not picking up on it either. Their silence is deafening! A growing database is showing exaggerated global warming fears in an effort to scare the public.
The press is not printing stories on accusations that Gore, along with social engineers on college campuses, may have reacted too quickly to early reports of climate change.
