Global COOLING Being Seen/Predicted

1) Above is a link to a Russian story that scientists in that country are seeing a possible shift to a colder climate; That our current period of relative warmth may soon be ending and the writer advises folks to "stock up on fur coats and felt boots". We're fairly certain the writer, Oleg Sorokhtin isn't now, or has been employed by Exxon-Mobile or any Russian Oil conglomerates. His model based on actual science, not the pseudo science of AlGore, states that the 'Earth is now at the peak of one of its passing warm spells'.

2) The primary reasons for climate changes are uneven solar radiation. Or solar activity and luminosity. Astrophysics knows two solar activity cycles, of 11 and 200 years. Both are caused by changes in the radius and area of the irradiating solar surface. The latest data suggests that the Earth has passed the peak of its warmer period, and a fairly cold spell will set in quite soon, by 2012. Real cold will come when solar activity reaches its minimum, by 2041, and will last for 50-60 years or even longer.

3) "Green house gases" may not be to blame for global warming. There is no scientific evidence that they cause it. The classic greenhouse effect scenario is too simple to be true. As things really are, much more sophisticated processes are on in the atmosphere, especially in the lower layers. For instance, heat is not so much radiated in space as carried by air currents—an entirely different mechanism, which cannot cause global warming.

4) If industrial pollution with carbon dioxide keeps at its present-day 5-7 billion metric tons a year, it would not change global temperatures up to the year 2100. The change would be so small for humans to feel even if the concentration of greenhouse gas emissions doubles! Carbon dioxide is NOT bad for the climate. On the contrary, it is food for plants, and so is beneficial to life on Earth. Bearing out this point was the Green Revolution—the phenomenal global increase in farm yields in the mid-20th century. Numerous experiments also prove a direct proportion between harvest and carbon dioxide concentration in the air. Carbon dioxide is not to blame for global climate change. Solar activity is many times more powerful than the energy produced by the whole of humankind. Man’s influence on nature is a drop in the ocean.
