Global Cooling? Sure Looks Like It

The Reactionary Redneck refers me to this piece from the CNS National Anxiety Center. Alan Caruba writes:

If you have been paying attention to global weather reports, you know that China has had the heaviest snowfall in at least three decades. David Deming, a geophysicist, in a December 19, 2007 article in The Washington Times, noted that, "South America this year experienced one of its coldest winters in decades. In Buenos Aires, snow fell for the first time since the year 1918." This occurred across the entire Southern Hemisphere. "Johannesburg, South Africa, had the first significant snowfall in 26 years. Australia experienced the coldest June ever."

It must be said that one big blizzard does not an Ice Age make, but a whole series of events that suggest a cooling cycle may well be the warning that is being ignored in the midst of the vast global warming hoax.

Of course this is cherry-picking and a one-year set of occurrences does not a trend make, but a growing number of scientists have begun worry about variations in solar output that will have immense effects on global climate.

The MSM is slowly beginning to wake to this fact, [see, for instance, this article in the National Post] but at present concerns about solar output and the possibility of global cooling are almost completely drowned out by global warming hype.

We really don't know what the future holds, only that change will take place. That being the case, it makes sense to follow Bjorn Lonborg's advice and focus on global economic development and better science that will enable our children to better cope with whatever changes and challenges they face.
