WHAT HAPPENED TO GLOBAL WARMING? This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998. But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.Conventional wisdom is that man-made "green house gases" are the source of global warming. However, there is a new voice arguing that the models presently being used are hopelessly wrong. Piers Corbyn from Weatheraction, a scientist who specializes in very long term weather forecasting. His models produce far different results.
He claims that solar charged particles impact us far more than is currently accepted, so much so he says that they are almost entirely responsible for what happens to global temperatures. He is so excited by what he has discovered that he plans to tell the international scientific community at a conference in London at the end of the month.If proved correct, this could revolutionise the whole subject. There is further evidence of the falaciousness of the computer models as they are now devised.
According to research conducted by Professor Don Easterbrook from Western Washington University last November, the oceans and global temperatures are correlated. The oceans, he says, have a cycle in which they warm and cool cyclically. The most important one is the Pacific decadal oscillation (PDO). For much of the 1980s and 1990s, it was in a positive cycle, that means warmer than average. And observations have revealed that global temperatures were warm too. But in the last few years it has been losing its warmth and has recently started to cool down.If these are proven to be more accurate, then we've been taken for an expensive ride. All the more so if the "Cap & Trade" Bill is passed by the Senate this fall. That will literally wreck our economy by making energy far more expensive.
