Sun-made Global Cooling (Not Man-made Global Warming)

Global thermometers stopped rising after 1998, and have plummeted in the last two years by more than 0.5 degrees Celsius. The 2007-2008 temperature drop was not predicted by global climate models. But it was predictable by a decline in sunspot activity since 2000.

When the sun is active, it’s not uncommon to see sunspot numbers of 100 or more in a single month. Every 11 years, activity slows, and numbers briefly drop near zero. Normally sunspots return very quickly, as a new cycle begins. But this year, the start of a new cycle, the sun has been eerily quiet.

The first seven months averaged a sunspot count of only three and in August there were no sunspots at all — zero — something that has not occurred since 1913.

According to the publication Daily Tech, in the past 1,000 years, three previous such events — what are called the Dalton, Maunder and Sporer Minimums — have all led to rapid cooling. One was large enough to be called the Little Ice Age (1500-1750).

The Little Ice Age has been a problem for global warmers because it serves as a reminder of how the earth warms and cools naturally over time. It had to be ignored in the calculations that produced the infamous and since-discredited hockey stick graph that showed a sharp rise in warming alleged to be caused by man.

Thank God for the few honest politicians like Environment minister Sammy Wilson who boldly speak the truth:

Man-made climate change is a con

UPDATE:

April 1, 2009: The sunspot cycle is behaving a little like the stock market. Just when you think it has hit bottom, it goes even lower.

2008 was a bear. There were no sunspots observed on 266 of the year’s 366 days (73%). To find a year with more blank suns, you have to go all the way back to 1913, which had 311 spotless days (85%). Prompted by these numbers, some observers suggested that the solar cycle had hit bottom in 2008.

Maybe not. Sunspot counts for 2009 have dropped even lower. As of March 31st, there were no sunspots on 78 of the year’s 90 days (87%).

It adds up to one inescapable conclusion: “We’re experiencing a very deep solar minimum,” says solar physicist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center.

Update: The masks slips for global-warming activists

The entire point of the global movement to arrest energy production is to punish the industrial nations for their wealth. This is just redistributionism writ large. They don’t want to limit carbon emissions per se; they just want the right people to emit carbon. Nations like the US, the UK, and other Western nations would have to be out of their minds to agree to a regime that allows China and India to emit far more carbon per capita than themselves, in order to meet some Utopian ideal of “fairness” in economic success.

    My local tv weatherman is John Coleman, the inventor of the weather channel…. he’s been saying this for ages. GW is a total crock scam to make billions off the sheeple.

  2. Jenn,

    Thank you for your comment. Many people are catching on that Anthropogenic (Man-made) Global Warming (AGW) is a hoax and a scam on an enormous scale. The Democrat Party, and a significant portion of the Republican Party, have been taken over by Democratic Socialist Communists. While capitalist countries are told that they must cut back on “fossil fuels” (which is another hoax…oil is NOT a “fossil fuel”, it is a renewable resource), Communist countries don’t give a rip about the AGW hoax and are drilling for oil anywhere they can. Russia is the world’s #2 oil exporter, second only to Saudi Arabia. China is in the process of drilling for oil off the coast of Cuba.

    In oil shale alone, the USA has over three times as much oil as the proven reserves of the worlds #1 oil exporter (Saudi Arabia). The USA can not only be 100% energy independent, using 100% of our own oil, but we could also become the world’s #1 oil exporter if we chose to be. That would make a HUGE difference in our economy!

    But the Democratic Socialist Communists don’t want that to happen, so they spread lies about AGW. The “mainstream” media is controlled by these Democratic Socialist Communists, so the “sheeple” who trust the MSM believe the lies.

    Meltdown of the climate ‘consensus’

    …the Himalayan claim wasn’t based on peer-reviewed scientific data, or on any data — but on speculation in a phone interview by a single scientist.

    Was science even a real concern for the IPCC?
