Global Cooling

So, I am a firm believer that we need to do something about pollution in the world. What I have disagreed with is that Global Warming is an alarming man-made event. I am scientific by nature and what I really hate more than anything is that there are pundits screaming from just one side of the aisle.

So now, the more I research, the more I am finding to refute all of the global warming fury. Start by reading my previous post entitled The Third War. There you will find some interesting scientific comments by leading climatologists.

Now, according to reports from Norway, we have this:

After years of decline, glaciers in Norway are again growing, reports the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE). The actual magnitude of the growth, which appears to have begun over the last two years, has not yet been quantified, says NVE Senior Engineer Hallgeir Elvehøy...

"DailyTech has previously reported on the growth in Alaskan glaciers, reversing a 250-year trend of loss. Some glaciers in Canada, California, and New Zealand are also growing, as the result of both colder temperatures and increased snowfall.
"Elvehøy says that the glaciers were even smaller during the 'Medieval Warm Period' of the Viking Era, prior to around the year 1350.

"Not all Norwegian glaciers appear to be affected, most notably those in the Jotenheimen region of Southern Norway."

From The Daily Tech:

Despite the recent growth, most glaciers in the nation are still smaller than they were in 1982. However, Elvehøy says that the glaciers were even smaller during the 'Medieval Warm Period' of the Viking Era, prior to around the year 1350.

And from we have this MIT research:

Boston (MA) - Scientists at MIT have recorded a nearly simultaneous world-wide increase in methane levels. This is the first increase in ten years, and what baffles science is that this data contradicts theories stating man is the primary source of increase for this greenhouse gas. It takes about one full year for gases generated in the highly industrial northern hemisphere to cycle through and reach the southern hemisphere. However, since all worldwide levels rose simultaneously throughout the same year, it is now believed this may be part of a natural cycle in mother nature - and not the direct result of man's contributions.

You can look at the amount of sunspot activity by viewing this image from to Solar Science department at NASA. It shows an extremely low sunspot activity for the past couple of years.


I'm sorry, but the world needs to wake up and quit buying that man is the cause of everything. Are there pollution issues? Yes. Do I want better fuel economy so there is less carbon emitted? Yes. Do I want to preserve the forests by finding alternative methods to making paper? Yes.

But quit making things sound so alarming, when the only thing it does is line your pockets.

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
