Global Cooling Is Coming -- and Beware the Big Chill, Scientist Warns

The climate debate, to me, is confusing at best. One respected scientist says it is warming and the next says cooling. Depending on the data you read, you can come to both conclusions. Since there is no agreement on this, there is even less agreement on whether the supposed warming is cyclical or man made. The man made theory is based on computer models that can be manipulated easily, whereas the cyclical theory is based on ice core samples, tree rings etc. which I call hard evidence.

Another reason I'm confused is the main proponents of global warming were proven to be manipulating the data and supposedly destroyed the data before it could be verified.

Another reason I'm confused is that those who dispute global warming have very little to gain. The proponents who are supporters of the Kyoto Treaty, carbon credits and the Cap & Tax legislation in the US, have everything to gain. Al Gore is a heavy investor in carbon exchange technology. Obama was on the board of The Joyce Foundation that helped fund the privately held Chicago Climate Exchange, Obama's friends at Fannie Mae purchased patents for the computer technology necessary to manage the carbon exchanges. It seems like everyone around Obama, past and present, has some interest in there being "global warming" so that the US enters into the already corrupt international "carbon exchange" program.

Make no mistake, there are billions to be made.

Maybe I'm not confused. Man made global warming is a hoax.

The hottest new trend in climate change may be global cooling, some researchers say.

Contrary to the commonly held scientific conclusion that the Earth is getting warmer, Dr. Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University and author of more than 150 peer-reviewed papers, has unveiled evidence for his prediction that global cooling is coming soon.

“Rather than global warming at a rate of 1 F per decade, records of past natural cycles indicate there may be global cooling for the first few decades of the 21st century to about 2030,” said Easterbrook, speaking on a scientific panel discussion with other climatologists. This, he says, will likely be followed by “global warming from about 2030 to 2060,” which will then be followed by another cooling spell from 2060 to 2090.

"Global warming is over -- at least for a few decades," Easterbrook told conference attendees. "However, the bad news is that global cooling is even more harmful to humans than global warming, and a cause for even greater concern."

Easterbrook made several stunning claims about the effects of the coming cold. There will be twice as many people killed by extreme cold than by extreme heat, he predicted, and global food production will suffer because of the shorter, cooler growing seasons and bad weather during harvest seasons.

But not everyone is breaking out the overcoat and mittens.

“It's absurd to talk of global cooling when global heating is with us now and accelerating," said Dan Miller, managing director of the Roda Group, and an expert on climate change. "According to NASA, this past April was the hottest since temperature measurements began. And 2010 is on track to be the hottest year since temperature records began.

Another presenter at the conference, James M. Taylor, an environmental policy expert and a fellow at the Heartland Institute, said that global cooling is already happening. Based on figures provided by the Rutgers University Global Snow Lab, he noted that snow records from the last 10 years exceeded the records set in the 1960s and 1970s.
