Are Scientists Preparing for a FlipFlop Back to Global Cooling Predictions?
Prophecy Sign: Anomalous weather patternsThere will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke NIV
The alleged weakening of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation appears to be triggering a growing amount of speculation about abrupt cooling, like the plot of the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”. Naturally most of the climate scientists who make such predictions expect the cooling to occur over a relatively short timescale, before the ice melt forcing which causes the predicted cooling is overwhelmed by our continued sinful emissions of CO2. But a fallback prediction of imminent abrupt cooling does conveniently make it rather difficult to falsify anthropogenic climate theories based on temperature alone, should global temperatures suddenly drop.
3 New Studies: Earth's Climate Not Warming That Fast
Earth's climate may not rise as quickly as scientists currently think, according to three new studies of how clouds are formed. Science magazine reports that the studies show that aerosols produced by humans may not cause the skies to get that much cloudier than they were before the Industrial Revolution.
A spotless sun: Incredible image shows solar activity at its quietest in 100 years - and some say it could trigger a mini ice age
The sun is in the currently in its quietest period for more than a century. For the second time this month, Vencore Weather claims the sun has gone into 'cue ball' mode, with images from Nasa showing no large visible sunspots on its surface. Astronomers say this isn't unusual, and solar activity waxes and wanes in 11-year cycles, and we're currently in Cycle 24, which began in 2008. However, if the current trend continues, then the Earth could be headed for a 'mini ice age' researchers have warned.
