We are being beaten by a one two punch. From one side we have the sun diminishing its radiance and on the other volcanoes have gone berserk these past few years. And we have ‘official’ smoke signals going up from the ICC global warming crowd that it is not warming after all with no sorry and no admission of being wrong or lying. (Be sure to read the special note at the end about the new official ICC statements, a new volcano blowing its stack since yesterday, and a spiritual note to global warming liars.)
Until recently, it has been the hard science of astrophysics that has been warning us that the sun has entered a phase of low activity, which will drive cooler weather here on earth. The head of the Space Research section of the Russian Academy of Science, Professor Khabibullo Abdussamatov, in 2006 issued a press release, warning that the world should prepare for imminent global cooling. He predicted that the global cooling would start in 2012 – 2015, and would likely peak around 2055.
"On the basis of our [solar emission] research, we developed a scenario of a global cooling of the Earth’s climate by the middle of this century and the beginning of a regular 200-year-long cycle of the climate’s global warming at the start of the 22nd century," said Abdussamatov. He and his colleagues had concluded that a period of global cooling similar to one seen in the late 17th century – when canals froze in the Netherlands and people had to leave their dwellings in Greenland – could start in 2012-2015 and reach its peak in 2055-2060.
The Russians did not calculate into their predictions these record breaking volcanic emissions into the atmosphere. Alone the sun was throwing us into cooling. Volcanic cooling is being added to the formula before our very eyes and only the blind at this point cannot see what is coming.
Increasing volcanic eruptions have been spweing ash into the atmosphere over the last 14 years are partially responsible for the cooling of Earth (slowing down the effects of global warming), a recent study published in Nature Geoscience suggests. Researchers attribute this helping hand to just 17 of the eruptions from 1998 to 2012 that pumped sulfur dioxide into Earth’s upper atmosphere. The molecule formed liquid particles that reflected sunlight back to space rather than to the Earth’s surface, moderating the larger-scale warming of the planet surface, the Los Angeles Times reported.
It is true that most volcanic pollution of the lower atmosphere is removed within days by the effects of rainfall and gravity, but stratospheric pollution may remain there for several years, gradually spreading to cover much of the globe. This stratospheric pollution results in a substantial reduction in the direct solar beam, largely through scattering by the highly reflective sulphuric acid aerosols. This can amount to tens of percent. The reduction, is however, compensated for by an increase in diffuse radiation and by the absorption of outgoing terrestrial radiation (the greenhouse effect). Overall, there is a net reduction of 5 to 10% in energy received at the Earth’s surface.
The Earth seems to have been smoking a lot recently. Volcanoes are erupting in Iceland, Hawaii, Indonesia, Ecuador and Mexico, as well as the recent eruption of Japan’s Mount Ontake. Others, in the Philippines and Papua New Guinea, erupted recently but seem to have calmed down. That’s the short list.
The Guardian printed, “Due to factors such as the gravitational pull of the sun and moon, the speed at which the Earth rotates constantly changes. Accordingly, the length of a day actually varies from year to year. The difference is only in the order of milliseconds. But new research suggests that this seemingly small perturbation could bring about significant changes on our planet – or more accurately, within it.” A study published in the journal Terra Nova in February showed that changes in the Earth’s rotation rate tended to be followed by increases in global volcanic activity.
The number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise. In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014. The previous number was set in 2010, at 82 volcanic eruptions for the year. The number of volcanoes erupting across the planet has been steadily rising from just 55 recorded in 1990. The average number of volcanic eruptions per year should be about 50 to 60; as of December 5, 2013, we were already at 83.
“In the last decade, the amount of volcanic aerosol in the stratosphere has increased, so more sunlight is being reflected back into space,” said lead author Benjamin Santer, climate scientist at Laurence Livermore National Laboratory, in a press release. “This has created a natural cooling of the planet and has partly offset the increase in surface and atmospheric temperatures due to human influence.”
Therefore, we know what volcanoes can do but no one has been able to calculate the accumulating effects of many smaller eruptions going off at the same time. Many of our recent volcanic eruptions have been very large and together seem to be having a strong and unexpected effect. The well-known cooling effect of volcanic ash is combining with diminishing radiation from the sun to slam us into, not eventual cooling, but quick cooling that will change life in the higher latitudes this year.
In my last post, Climate Disaster Coming Our Way, it was mentioned that British weatherman were freaking out with their dire predictions for their country for the next five months. We saw that Bulgaria is already in a snow emergency. If this winter is even worse than the last one we are going to be in for a hard time. Having a month to six weeks shaved off our collective growing season suddenly is going to have grave consequences in a world already with a short supply of food.
The huge gas, ash and aerosol cloud blasted into the atmosphere by Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, which erupted in 1991. Mount Pinatubo, a stratovolcano in the Philippines, cooled global temperatures for about 2–3 years. The eruption was one of the century’s most powerful eruptions. Its huge dust and aerosol cloud cooled parts of the world by up to 0.4 degrees Celsius.
In 1883, the explosion of Krakatoa (Krakatau) created volcanic winter-like conditions. The four years following the explosion were unusually cold, and the winter of 1887-1888 included powerful blizzards. Record snowfalls were recorded worldwide.
The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, a stratovolcano in Indonesia, occasioned mid-summer frosts in New York State and June snowfalls in New England and Newfoundland and Labrador in what came to be known as the “Year Without a Summer” of 1816.
This one volcano shown above effected global temperatures. Now we have many smaller eruptions that are ganging up to help the sun plunge us into the cold. It really is too bad global warming was never real, we could have used it.
Special Note: In just the one day since finishing this essay we have the new official story. So please, all you global warmers get the cotton out of your brains and get it right. Global warming? Not anytime soon, according to a top United Nations and ICC scientist. Dr. Mojib Latif of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences told Bavarian Radio that the so-called “pause” in global warming could continue for another three decades. Currently, satellite datasets show that the average global temperature has not warmed in more than 18 years. See video of this report but note they are still lying by promising global warming will start again in ten years. That is a promise no one can make or keep.
To all global warmers please be in truth for a change, it will not hurt that much I promise. Did you know that in the sacred heart of every human being is a place that can only stand the light of day when it is with truth? Because love is the truth and God behind that; our organ of pure being, our center of pure feeling and vulnerability, which in the bible is referred to as the heart, can only stand the truth. When faced with untruths it simply folds its cards and goes away. It closes and either turns to inner pain or just simply ceases to exist.
What happens with infidelities, with secrets we hold from a loved one (and everyone should be on the same standard with communication and truth) is that this special part of ourselves closes down automatically and our loved one feels the difference but we deny to them our truth, which is that we did not maintain our fidelity. It is not the sex but the lie and is the core of infidelity. Global warming is a lie and it is time for everyone to come clean about it.
This big high monster of a volcano just went off in Costa Rica and the Civil Aviation Administration issued a warning for all airplanes to avoid a 32-kilometer (20-mile) radius around Turrialba Volcano and up to an altitude of 5.8 km (19,000 feet). That is one more sources of high altitude sun blocking pollution.
Instead of promising of new warming in the far future real scientists (meaning not ones with institutional blinders on) would be calculating in every volcano and every report from the astrophysicist department about solar activity. We really do not need people in important professional positions dishing out more disinformation into the collective group mind set.
