This article brought to you by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.  So I guess they can all go home now, right?

Right?

I'm looking forward to moving to Mexico to survive. And I really hope Jake Gyllenhaal freezes to death in NYC.

Abdussamatov claims that "global warming results not from the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, but from an unusually high level of solar radiation and a lengthy-almost throughout the last century- growth in its intensity." - Wikipedia

How do you say "derp" in Uzbek?

Tomorrow, high 61
Tomorrow night, low 39!
Friday, high 60

quite chilly for may
they may be on to something

I really like how this  Russian scientist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov, of the St Petersburg Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory says or does nothing to substantiate his claim. At least in the given article...

The next ice age is scheduled for 2020.

/And you thought this solar maximum(2014) was cold........
//10 years ice age as a basis.

You know, I stopped listening to Russian scientists a long time ago.  Right about the time that they said the US was headed toward irreversible break up that would result in 6 different nations, based on local cultural norms because of the 2008 economic downturn.
 
2013-05-01 03:25:44 PM
Acually, a new ice age doesn't sound that bad. I like cold weather. And civilization didn't collapse between 1600 and 1850 so it wouldn't now. Bring it on!

as hot as the north texas summers tend to be, i could handle a couple of years without seeing triple digits. i figure an "ice age" around these parts would still give us summertime highs around 85!

Let's see:

- denier blog
- first paragraph discusses current weather in what is supposed to be a climate article - typical derp
- announces a new climate trend will "begin next year" - idiotic levels of precision
- scientific publications cited: none

Yup. This one is a winner folks!!

In all actuality and seriousness, a new 'little ice age' would result in famine and mass starvation in numerous parts of the world.

And off the top of my head, I've no idea what sort of impact it would have on the Breadbasket region of the US, but I can't imagine it being 'good' for the crops.

Well, umm...Yeah, see...The Arctic ice is melting.  Like, right now.  It's gotten to the point where they're seriously looking at having an honest to god year-round Northwestern Passage.  And that's not very good when you think about it.

Oh gawd, that's just what the "scientist" in the article actually claimed.
 
2013-05-01 03:34:55 PM
Here is the fact of the matter...  (All you science nerds can just get in line now to tell me I'm wrong)

We are actually IN and ice age now.  Albeit a small one.  Having polar ice caps at both polls, may actually be unique in Earth's history.

In other words...  We humans have only been here for a brief fraction of the life of this planet.  As such, all of our recorded history makes up a tiny, tiny fraction of the history of the whole thing.
Glaciers, not once, but repeatedly, blanketed the globe.  There have been a few times that there was barely anything BUT ice.  What we are experiencing now represents a timespan that is equivalent to a nice spring day, where the ice is just starting to melt.  Yet all of our thinking of it is that the continents have always been where they are, and the ocean levels have always been the same.

That is so completely and absurdly false and wrong that it is maddening to even argue the point.

The last ice age hasn't ended yet.  We humans have just been here, and paying attention, for too short a time to realize it.

The climate IS changing.  Whether or not Al Gore has got the right idea about it can continue to be a point of debate.  But it's always changing (d'uh).  Even if human activity doesn't enter into the equation, it's happening.  And we have nothing in our arsenal to do a damn thing about it.

Take five seconds and think about what happens when ice on land melts and flows into the sea.  To say nothing of what environmental impacts will be felt if it continues.

Even a minuscule rise in ocean levels has a domino effect on other things.  So, yeah, this is a big farking deal.

I actually agree with a lot of the points in this post (and disagree with a couple).  And I do think we prioritize Global Warming to the detriment of other environmental causes (like habitat preservation).

However, if we can use Global Warming as an excuse to reduce air pollution, to show that humans need to consume less, to stimulate green technologies, I'm not too unhappy about it.

This was an Ice Age (the last ones coverage in North America)

Well, ummmm.....my point was about sensationalism in article headlines.  Whether or not the average earth temperature is rising or falling is for scientists, grant seekers, and the Chicken Lickins/Littles of the world to decide.
