    Default Global Cooling Sucks!

    Could we be in for 30 years of global COOLING? | Mail Online

    That's right folks, some "scientist" are predicting thirty years of "Global Cooling".

    You people aren't poluting enough! We need to get "Global Warming" back!

    Agreed. Even if this is the case, 30 years of cooling in the scheme of the theory only furthers the global warming argument--basically, that the global climate is recalibrating to something different.

    That's like arguing that a stock market week went in one direction when it's predicted that the year is going to go in the other direction.

    Hmmm. Global cooling. Not so bad. This could be the time for me to get rich by selling toasty warm crocheted blankets.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I will explain myself since it looks that I am misunderstood.


    There will be no global cooling.
    The bombastic news like this are created only because they are selling newspapers. However there is little science behind claims like this one.
    I will expain in detail when I have enough time.

    It's still going in the direction of "warm" but like I said with the stock market analogy, it's hardly a straight line when something recalibrates. This is inherent in the theory of global warming--that some areas will cool but the overarching direction is warm.

    Interestingly, the Canadian province/territory border north of Manitoba/Saskatchewan was chosen based off of the treeline, which of course was based off of the permafrost.

    The treeline has moved ginormously (to use official terminology) because the permafrost border is dramatically shifting. The political border is eons away from the treeline now, in a matter of two decades.

    hmm...could it be that there's little science behind the research grants?

    Or is there actually hope for beach front property without having to move?!?

    Well, you see, on the geo-political stage, island nations like Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, Tuvalu and so forth are the most ardent about taking steps toward environmental protection. This is because they don't need to trust abstract figures from distant scientists, since instead, anyone that's lived there for a long period of time has watched the water slowly swallow the islands. Their beach property is going to be no property at all, and you'd be very hard pressed to convince them global warming isn't happening.

    That article is void of science.

    Anyhow, 'global warming' can cause the opposite to happen. It can cause cooling in certain regions, because climate can affect the conveyor belt of heat-moving currents in the North Atlantic Ocean, which in turn affect temperatures in certain regions.

    I once watched a show, that predicted, if climate change is indeed true, that Europe could be heading into somewhat of an 'iceage' (a relentless winter)

    Ocean currents are complex things though, and the 'pump' can be turned off by other things apart from a rising temperature/melting ice. There are so many factors to consider when talking about climate.
