OK, liberals. Let's discuss the SCIENCE of global climate change. It is NOT driven by people.

Although we have been enmeshed in a long debate over global warming and climate change, this controversy has been politically motivated, not a response to actual global warming, as there has been no warming for 16 years.

In fact, it is likely we will soon need to take a long, hard look at adjustments in behavior based not on warmth, which, by and large, results in good things, but, rather, on cold, which creates endless problems for both individuals and society.

Solar Activity Waning
Scientists from Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia, stated in the Voice of Russia on April 22 that solar activity is waning to such an extent that the global average yearly temperature will soon begin to decline.

Now, there is no reason to believe there will be any warming during the remainder of this century, says Vladimir Kotlyakov, head of the Institute of Geography at the Russian Academy of Science, speaking with Vladimir Radyuhin for the Hindu newspaper on April 22, 2013. In the same article, Dr. Yuri Nagovitsyn, academic secretary of the Pulkovo Observatory, is quoted as saying coming generations will have to grapple with temperatures several degrees lower than those today.

On Jan. 8, on NASA's Science News website, Tony Phillips cited Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory as noting we are now in the final stages of Solar Cycle 24, which has been "the weakest in more than 50 years." By the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives shortly, they predict, "magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed," Phillips wrote.

Cold Temperatures Appearing
The effects of this weak solar activity have been notable. The United Kingdom just suffered through a winter with temperatures 5 to 10 degrees Celsius below normal, and German meteorologists report 2013 has been the coldest year in 208 years. Writing April 27 in England's Sunday Telegraph, Christopher Booker noted 3,318 places in the United States that had recorded their lowest temperatures for that time of year since records began. Similar records were set in every province of Canada, and the Russian winter has brought its deepest snowfall in 134 years.

Anthony Watts, at his Watts Up With That blog, shows that, in this century, average U.S. winter temperatures have dropped by 1.45 degrees C, more than twice as much as their rise from 1850-1999 and twice as much as the net rise in the 20th century.

This cooling has come as a big surprise to many. All of mankind's new carbon dioxide emissions were supposed to make things too warm, with climate models indicating the world would heat up by 0.3 degrees C every decade.

Armed with an understanding of the solar cycles, however, Vladimir Bashkin and Rauf Galiulin from the Institute of Fundamental Problems of Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences state the warming in the past century was simply what should be expected when coming out of a mini ice age, rather than any changes caused by man's activities.

Government Changes Needed
Cold causes more disruptions for people than warming, and mankind always has been more prosperous during warmer periods. However, with modern technology, we have the ability to plan accordingly and manage the slow change toward cooling that is likely upon us. But unless the governments of the world turn off the spigots that have fed tens of billions of dollars annually to support only research on man-caused warming, and begin to fund serious science intent on determining what the real global temperature trends are, it will be a decade or more before the truth is told.

The suggestion that the Earth may actually be cooling, not warming, is based on centuries of real data of how our planetary system actually works. It is time to turn away from supposing and direct our attention to reality.

Those gullible people who are screaming about global warming have no clue about whats really happening. They've read no studies about how flawed the research was (and is).
The madia has told them over and over about the so called warming and as we all know, tell a person something 3 times and they believe it.
The press has been operating under this principle for years.
Duhhhhh

I said I was doing to shut down the coal industry, so it shall be done. If I have to say that there is global climate change in order to do it, so it shall be.

Conservatives are constantly decried as being anti-science because many of us happen to be believing Christians and because we won't swallow the AGW myth hook, line, and sinker.

In fact, it is the liberals who are using a contrived pseudo-science to further their own religion of big government. It is interesting to note that the proposed solution to the 'problem' of AGW is exactly the same as the solution proposed in the 1970s to the 'problem' of a looming ice age. No matter what the 'problem' the solution is always more government and less freedom.

"Conservatives are constantly decried as being anti-science because many of us happen to be believing Christians..." and the universe was created in seven days, evolution is a myth and the planet is flat.

Thank you for making my point for me. You take one small group of Christians and try to attach their beliefs to all of us.

If people would the research they would come to realize that global warming is NOT happening.
Several good respected authorities:
Prof Curry at Ga Tech
Prof Tonis at U of Wisc.
Swedish scientist Henrik Svensmark
Prof Archibald
Dr Wm Gray of Colorado State
and MANY MANY MORE...
Many think a cooling period is coming

Brilliant post!
However it will won't matter .People would rather get their news and views from the press...LOL LOL LOL
