Rolling Stone magazine named Senator Jim Inhofe No. 7 on their list of "Idiots" who are the "planet's worst enemies." Inhofe's outrage was that he wasn't No. 1. Nevermind the mini ice age some prominent climate scientists believes we may headed for, including Professor Mojib Latif, a member of the UN's IPCC. See a beautiful video of Montana and the "cooling trend" there, from a reader below.
Top on the list of those believing cooler temps are on the weather radar is the U.N.'s own Professor Mojib Latif, "a leading member of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change (IPCC). Latif apparently warned his colleagues in a 2008 Geneva conference that tests he developed and performed deep beneath the surface of the ocean showed a coming cooling trend.
Speaking of the natural cycles that determine warmer or cooler temps, Latif said:
They have now gone into reverse, so winters like this one will become much more likely. Summers will also probably be cooler, and all this may well last two decades or longer.
The extreme retreats that we have seen in glaciers and sea ice will come to a halt. For the time being, global warming has paused, and there may well be some cooling.’In other words, this cooling is not a side-effect of warming, as so many warming theorists want us to believe.
According to the UK's DailyMail, the BBC continued the warming storyline:
Though record lows were experienced as far south as Cuba, where the daily maximum on beaches normally used for winter bathing was just 4.5C, the BBC assured viewers that the big chill was merely short-term ‘weather’ that had nothing to do with ‘climate’, which was still warming.
Tsonis is not a warming denier, but he does not believe that computer models showing that if CO2 reaches a particular level, then temps and sea levels will rise by a given amount.
This is a very interesting article, with numerous named scientists saying that the warming we experienced was natural, with little attribution to CO2.
Thanks for the tip from reader, David Lemon. If you have not taken a look at David's online Clay to Bronze workshop, complete with fascinating videos of him as he works, you have missed something very special. David is an amazing sculptor, and a really fine videographer, working in Ennis, Montana. Get away from politics for awhile and watch David at work.
Look around at some of his photos and videos of winter in Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.This video is on David's website, but I borrowed it because it fits right in with the cooling trends. David begins a trip with temps 10 below and drives past a river with 10' of ice on top. Watch for the little pop-ups describing where he is and what you are seeing. Take a look at a gallery in Jackson Hole, the Tetons...just beautiful and the his music is always incredible.
