Andrew West published an article entitled, Deadly Temperatures Are Set To Invade America…Are You Safe? on December 28, 2017 saying:
"All good hoaxes must come to an end, and this week’s frigid and dangerous arctic blast may be another nail in the coffin for the “global warming” charlatans. The idea that the entire globe is somehow filling with greenhouse gasses, thusly heating the planet up to the point of no return, is patently absurd. Even the liberal science community believed 30 years ago that this process would likely cause a mini ice age, before dramatically shifting to their current hangup regarding an increase in temperature. The reason for this abrupt change was not some scientific breakthrough, rather, the idea that the earth could become uninhabitable via heat is a much more profound problem."Unfortunately, this isn't a schadenfreude moment. You love to smugly say "I told you so", when arrogant, smarmy leftists look down their noses at everyone and declare any who disagree with them as enemies of humanity, flat Earthers, deniers, and more in their efforts to impose a totally destructive economic plan on the world based on the Kyoto Accords. A scientifically fraudulent plan with the real goal of creating a scheme of worldwide governance under the United Nations. Even a past president of France, Jacques Chirac acknowledged the Kyoto Accord was the first step in global governance.
However, this cooling trend is what many of us who've been on the right side of this issue from the beginning has been expecting for some time: The potential for another solar minimum, and they're deadly!
The last minimum was during what's called the Dalton Minimum, which was another low sun spot period starting "about 1790 to 1830 or 1796 to 1820, corresponding to the period solar cycle 4 to solar cycle 7." "Like the Maunder Minimum, 1645 - 1715, and Sporer Minimum 1460 -1550, the Dalton Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures. During that period, there was a variation of temperature of about 1 °C in Germany."
Some are claiming the cause for that cooling was a result of volcanism - and while that may have been a contributing factor - the fact of the matter is the cooling temperatures and solar minimum patterns are solid evidence, and that pattern is playing out right now.
But here's something to think about. There's no consistent pattern as to how long these minimums go on. The Maunder Minimum started in "about 1645 and continuing to about 1715", about 70 years, and if the Dalton minimum started in 1790 and lasted until 1830, that was 40 years, if it lasted, as some claim, from 1796 until 1820, that was a mere 24 years. But no matter - there was only about a 75 to 85 year period where temperatures rose to level better suited to human and animal survival during that either 175 or 185 year period.
Let's understand this - over the last 1000 years it's been the cold that's been deadly, not the warming. The warm periods were periods where agriculture, humans and animals flourished, including the Roman Warming Period from approximately 250 BC to AD 400.
A thousand years ago that age, now known as the Medieval Warming Period from 800 to 1400 AD, it was substantially warmer than it is today. Although there are those who claim - through the use of Climate Proxy records this warming period wasn't universal. Proxy records like tree ring counting, but is that reliable?
As a result of Biffa's offerings - tree ring counting that supplied evidence in support of what's now being called the "fraudulent" Hockey Stick Graph - we now know it isn't.
We now know that not only can it be unreliable, it can be manipulated to get the results the researcher wants, all of which Anthony Watts covers quite well in his December 4, 2009 article, Jo Nova finds the Medieval Warm Period. It's also interesting no one questioned the universality of that warming period until it interfered with the Warmist’s claims, especially since in Mann's Hockey Stick Graph the Medieval Warming Period and the Little Ice Age completely disappear.
The Medieval Warming period ended with what's called the Little Ice Age - 1300 to about 1850 - which forced the Vikings who lived there for about 300 years to abandon Greenland and return to Iceland. Greenland really was green over a large section of the Southern region. It's also known from the historical records they're agricultural practices were the same as those practiced in Norway and Iceland. They had to leave because they could no longer maintain those practices. Because cold kills! And every warming period humanity has experience has been beneficial.
In the paper, The `Hockey Stick': A New Low in Climate Science by John L. Daly he outlines the time lines in this way:
- Medieval Warm Period (AD 700 - 1300)
- Sporer Minimum' cool period (AD 1300 - 1500)
- Brief climatic warming (AD 1500 - 1560)
- Little Ice Age (`Maunder Minimum') (AD 1560 - 1830) (Editor's note: I think he must be melding the Maunder and Dalton Minimums in this time frame. One thing we all have to acknowledge is the exact time frames for all of this is malleable, which can be a source for controversy, but the fact these eras existed isn't disputable. RK)
- Brief warmer period (AD 1830 - 1870)
- Brief cool period (AD 1870 - 1910)
- 20th century warm period (AD 1910 - 2000)
"As to what caused these two major climatic events, the most probable candidate is the variable sun, particularly with respect to the Little Ice Age. This is because we have direct observations of sunspot counts going back to 1600 AD, which allows us to compare variations in the sun with variations to global climate. Fig.2 shows how the sun has changed over time, the radiation being greatest during a sunspot maximum and least during a sunspot minimum, both recurring on an 11-year cycle."
All the claims about Anthropogenic Climate Change are based on two foundations. The Hockey Stick Graph, which is now being challenged by more and more scientists, including those who previously adhered to this tenet of green religion, and computer models, all of which are failing or have failed, which is why I call that Game Boy science.
There are three things Warmists leave out of these models that actually have something to do with climate: The decadal cycles of the oceans currents, the sun's cycles and the number one component of our atmosphere which actually does hold warmth - water vapor! Why are they left out? Because these are natural components of climate and mankind can't be blamed.
Computer models are an important part of science as it allows scientists to test new ideas quickly, then change the parameters to see what comes out, allowing for more speculation. But speculation isn't science! It’s a component of science which can allows for shortcuts in deciding what areas they need to pay attention to in order to do real science. Science based on actual observation, not speculation.
We're hearing all these claims of Anthropogenic Climate Change and disaster, but we should be asking this: Why did these hystarians opt out of the phrase, Anthropogenic Global Warming and choose Anthropogenic Climate Change instead? They knew their claims were unraveling! It was also clear the "climate deniers" weren't walking away from the evidence of their fraud so they had to find a way to make whatever temperatures changes which might occur the fault of mankind, and most importantly - capitalism - and especially the capitalists of the United States.
But their efforts are failing so rapidly even Al Gore won't be able to further enrich himself with the scam. The biggest reason is the Internet! Finally, those who've opposed all the fraudulent claims put out by that neo-pagan secular religion known as Environmentalism, had a platform - an international platform - to challenge these people. A platform the media would have never given them. That's why the Kyoto Protocol never passed, and that piece of junk science known as the Montreal Protocol would have never been passed if the Internet existed then.
What I would like to know is when are these fraudsters going to be charged with a crime? The Global Warming scam is a fraud paid for by the American taxpayer. And the last time I looked: Fraud is a crime!
There are five questions everyone has to ask.
1. Was it substantially warmer during the Medieval Warming period than it is now? The answer is yes!
2. If the answer is yes, and it is, then we have to ask: What caused that warming period and what caused the Roman Warming Period? Answer: Those periods of warming must have been naturally occurring.
3. If those warming periods were naturally occurring why shouldn't we believe any warming occurring now (which stopped over 20 years ago) isn't naturally occurring? Answer: We shouldn't
4. If it was substantially warmer during both the Roman and Medeieval Warming periods did any of the disasters they're predicting for today occur then? Answer: There's absolutely nothing in the historical record to show any of these disasters occurred then.
5. If these disasters didn't occur then, when it was substantially warmer, why should we believe any of these disasters will occur today. The answer is - we shouldn't!
We're going through another period of little or no sun spot activity. Does that mean another solar minimum? No one knows for sure, but it seems historically and scientifically probable. It's hard to feel schadenfreude when that happens - because cold kills!
