Cooling could continue for 20 to 30 years

Jan 10, 2010 Full story: www.dailymail.co.uk 40

The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world's most eminent climate scientists.

Their predictions – based on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans – challenge some of the global warming orthodoxy’s most deeply cherished beliefs, such as the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in summer by 2013.

The scientists’ predictions also undermine the standard climate computer models, which assert that the warming of the Earth since 1900 has been driven solely by man-made greenhouse gas emissions and will continue as long as carbon dioxide levels rise. They say that their research shows that much of the warming was caused by oceanic cycles when they were in a ‘warm mode’ as opposed to the present ‘cold mode’. This challenge to the widespread view that the planet is on the brink of an irreversible catastrophe is all the greater because the scientists could never be described as global warming ‘deniers’ or sceptics.

I became aware of extreme weather cycles, both hot and cold, quite a long time ago and although they never arrive at the exact same time, they more or less fall into an 11 year pattern, plus or minus.

The 30 year climate cycle has become evident to me more recently and although the overall trend is warming, it's a lot slower than many people think.

Belief in a massive increase of global temperature during the next century is for the birds.

Let's face reality, it's only around 160 years since the LIA ended and warming resumed.

Just more right wing GOP denier propaganda to avoid their responsibility. Well it wont work!
The US must pay for their crimes.
We will have environmental and economic justice.

I don't think that this is a good report. It is clear that the current 'cooling' is more due to warming of the arctica and has no relevance to global temperatures.

It seems hard to get these people to understand that GLOBAL warming is about the GLOBAL temperature of the SURFACE, not air.

Good article describing how natural cycles are at play. Time to give the alternative some considertion. Colder temps will create a different set of issues for mankind.

Heavy snows often create power outages because of downed lines, can you heat your home without electricity or gas?

Bingo. Then again, this isn't the first time that Latif has been misquoted by deniers, crowing over his prediction of temporary cooling--but ignoring his warning that it will be followed by much greater warming.

You're the one who's asleep, it's the work of Profs Latif, Tsonis and their separate teams.
I doubt they're the only ones who have similar ideas.

Not surprising.
Some bunch of toothless, racist, right wing, denialist that infect FauxNews.
I would love to see FauxNews taken off the air.
Would put an end to this garbage.
There is no room for those who hate Obama and deny AGW.

topix has taken a strong position of support of AGW deniers on these topix AGW forums.
Its obvious that the right wing racists/deniers are dangerous.
We need strong internet regulation now more than ever.
Hate talk radio and FauxNews should also be shut down for the peace and good of the nation.
These people are social terrorists and should be prosecuted as such.

so you are telling us you only measure the SURFACE? what does that mean? is the sea the surface? or the ice at the poles? do you actually measure the pavement in the cities, and the sand in the desert? could you explain this quite strange statement?

You speak truth. I have documented the self-righteous threats, stalkings, intimidations & racist pigisms that conservative AGW deniers pour onto topix AGW forums. topix strongly supports AGW deniers. topix willfully does NOT control self-righteous threats, stalkings & intimidations. Along with hate talk radio & FauxNews, topix, itself, needs to be shut down. topix has allowed AGW deniers to threaten, stalk, & intimidate AGW advocates to stay away from topix, in affect, unilaterally, biasing this website as if AGW deniers have more power & numbers than they actually have.
Yes, I agree with Chicago Hope & Change. Shut hate talk radio, FauxNews, & topix, a biased & unworthy website that foists itself off as a news media. If any monetary assistance can be traced to energy & exxon boardroom PR agents, take appropriate measures against them, also.

A little less, but close enough.

The last little ice age was caused by the Dalton Minimum of solar activity, spanning several sunspot cycles. The great length of the last, cycle 23 from 1996-2009, and the slow weak onset of cycle 24 is only matched in the historical record by cycles 4 and 5 at the start of the Dalton Minimum.

And the same characteristic perturbation in the Sun's sngular momentum that accomopanied all of the known Grand Minima and associtaed little ice ages is occurring again today:

After a century of some of the highest levels of solar activity known, we're now headed into serious cooling.

Latif has previously stated that his models don't have any skill (ie can't make predictions) past 2015, I think, and Tsonis' published work suggests only a plateau in temperatures until about 2020, followed by more warming.

Strange to see them quoted here as predicting 20-30 years of cooler temperatures.

Strange as in fishy.

Yes change is here. The weather will go through another cooling period and there will be people like you running around proclaiming that a ice age is coming and tell the rest of us to change to the exact same solutions that they proclaimed were the answer to global warming.

So far whenever someone like you trys to implement economic and socal justice they end up comitting more crimes and hurting more people. Pol Pot was just one of the last try try it and ask those in Cambodia how that worked. Oh wait many of those people ended up dead.
