With upstate New York still digging-out from more then ten feet of snowfall, Americans are becoming more concerned than ever before about the threat of global cooling.
The concern about global cooling is not new, especially since man's pollution may be to blame, and respected scientists have been predicting global cooling for decades.
Back in the 1970's, scientist Isaac Asimov saw global cooling as a serious, man-made problem. Even in 2006, respected scientists are predicting more global cooling:
"Abdusamatov and his colleagues at the Russian Academy of Sciences astronomical observatory said the prediction is based on measurement of solar emissions, Novosti reported.
They expect the cooling to begin within a few years and to reach its peak between 2055 and 2060."
Tropical areas are getting record snowfall
In 1970 the World Meteorological Organization also warned about global cooling, and in 1975 NEWSWEEK noted the consensus about global cooling by scientists. Does this sound familiar?
"ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically," the magazine warned of an impending "drastic decline in food production." Political disruptions stemming from food shortages could affect "just about every nation on earth. . .
This NASA document says that the “Iris effect” contributes to global cooling and that average temperatures are falling dramatically. This NASA chart on global stratospheric temperatire anomalies clearly shows the global cooling trend:
NASA has proof of global cooling
To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather...
But they are almost unanimous in the view that the [cooling] trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. If the climatic change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic."
In 2005, the US Senate questioned scientist Michael Creighton about his bestselling book "State of Fear" where he explains the "bad science" behind the "global warming" scare and the scientific reality of climate change. Scientist Lowell Ponte noted that global cooling is a serious issue today:
"It is a cold fact: the Global Cooling presents humankind with the most important social, political, and adaptive challenge we have had to deal with for ten thousand years.
Your stake in the decisions we make concerning it is of ultimate importance; the survival of ourselves, our children, our species"
Dr. Tim Ball, a respected climatology expert, also notes that it's global cooling that we need to be worried about:
"Global Warming, as we think we know it, doesn't exist. And I am not the only one trying to make people open up their eyes and see the truth. . .
This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science. We are wasting time, energy and trillions of dollars while creating unnecessary fear and consternation over an issue with no scientific justification."
This 2006 article titled "Global Cooling Effect" notes the science behind global cooling:
“A report in New Scientist magazine yesterday chronicles the work of a crew of scientists who forecast a new wave of global cooling brought on by a decline in activity in the sun.
The New Scientist report, along with other scientific assessments warning of global cooling"
There is no denying that massive global cooling exists, and the only question is whether it's natural or man-made. . . .
