Knock, Knock: Where is the Evidence for Dangerous Human-Caused Global Warming?
by Robert M. Carter, Adjunct Research Professor, James Cook University, Townsville, Qld. 4811
Excerpt: Dangerous climate extremes will not be prevented by reducing human carbon dioxide emissions, but – as they occur – should be adapted to using similar response strategies to those applied to other dangerous natural events such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami and sea-level change.

Predictions of an ice-free Arctic prove to be just a lot of hot air.

Solar Winds Cooling Warmist Doomsaying
by Timothy Birdnow
Global warming alarmists face yet another challenge to their predictions of an inferno of doom. The solar wind is losing power, and is at a fifty year low, according to NASA.

New Solar Cycle Sunspot
After many weeks of a blank sun with no sunspots and very few sunspots this entire year, a small new sunspot emerged Sept. 23, 2008. This new spot has both the magnetic orientation and the high-latitude position of a sunspot belonging to the new solar cycle, Cycle 24.

Lowdown on the sun
“This extreme minimum has important implications for the solar dynamo for solar activity and perhaps even for terrestrial climate,” comments solar physicist Spiro Antiochos of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The dynamo is the roiling motions of gas inside the sun that generate the sun’s magnetic field.
Because the magnetic field at solar minimum acts as the seed field for the next minimum, “it may well be that the next cycle will be low, which could have a cooling effect on terrestrial weather," Antiochos says. "There appears to be evidence for a correlation between lack of activity and terrestrial cooling.” Such cooling was observed during an extended period of unusually low solar activity about 300 years ago known as the Maunder Minimum

A little more being said about the 2 year cooling trend and nothing about the "Spotless Sun".....

Met Office: Global warming sceptics 'have heads in sand'
by Lewis Page
The UK Met Office climate change bureau has issued a stinging attack on the idea that recent falls in global temperature might mean that global warming is over or has been exaggerated.

FORECAST THROUGH SATURDAY...MUCH COLDER AIR WILL SPREAD ACROSS THE BEAUFORT SEA AFTER WEDNESDAY. NEW ICE WILL DEVELOP IN MUCH OF THE ICE FREE WATERS BETWEEN 140W AND 155W WHERE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE 1C OR LESS. ICE WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE ALASKA BARRIER ISLANDS ALONG THE NORTHWEST AND NORTH COASTS NORTH OF 70N.

Space and Science Research Center Press Release SSRC 4-2008
The Space and Science Research Center (SSRC) in Orlando, Florida, today sent letters to Senators John McCain, Barack Obama, Joseph Biden and Governor Sarah Palin warning them of the consequences of the next climate change to a period of deep, long lasting and possibly destructive cold weather.

RELEASE : 08-241 Ulysses Reveals Global Solar Wind Plasma
Output At 50-Year Low
WASHINGTON -- Data from the Ulysses spacecraft, a joint NASA-European Space Agency mission, show the sun has reduced its output of solar wind to the lowest levels since accurate readings became available. The sun's current state could reduce the natural shielding that envelops our solar system.
