Al Gore's Nightmare Intensifies
It's been a tough week for warmists, and it is getting worse. The spectacle of the Ship of Warmist Fools stuck in Antarctic ice they expected to see melting, and then their rescuers getting stuck in ice, was bad enough. But then the East and Midwest got locked into life-threatening cold that is disrupting the New Year. Those memories will linger.
And now comes the launch of the Global Cooling Awareness Project. From the group's press release:
The Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), has just launched the "Global Cooling Awareness Project, (GCAP)" to help draw attention to the growing concern among the world's scientists and climate researchers that a new record setting cold climate epoch may have begun.
The GCAP will be a listing of science educators, researchers, and science-degreed individuals, similar to that of the Global Warming Petition Project started by Dr. Arthur Robinson in 1998 at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM). That decades-long project eventually compiled a list of over 30,000 professionals who signed a short statement that they were opposed to the concept of manmade global warming. (snip)
The SSRC's December 10, 2013 edition of the Global Climate Status Report (GCSR)© for example, shows that of twenty four climate parameters we keep track of, eighteen now show global cooling as the dominant trend. The remainder of the set of parameters are expected to switch to cooling within the next five to ten years. It is vital that the world changes its focus from debating the now thoroughly discredited notion of manmade climate change, to the far more important subject of preparing for the approaching decades of what may be extreme cold weather.
We don't know whether or not cooling will continue. But if it does, the bad effects will be far worse than would be a few degrees of warming. So, given the unpredictability of climate, we should be more concerned about cooling than warming.
Those who put their faith in computer models that have been unable to predict the last 15 years are charlatans. I remain agnostic on what lies ahead.
