Neil DeGrasse Tyson gave climate change deniers an incredible two-minute smack down, saying our world is changing for the worse and we need to do something about it. Only a fool cannot see the dramatic changes (manmade or not) and we do need to do something about it – but what? Moreover, whom are we going to trust in determining what humanity needs to do, Al Gore?
“Despite mountains of evidence, there are still politicians and pundits who claim the polar vortex and California’s extreme drought are totally normal and not at all caused by humans. Fed up, Texas-based physicist and author Christopher Keating is ponying up $10,000 of his own money to anyone who can prove that man-made global warming isn’t happening,” writes Liz Dwyer.
Notice how we went from climate change to global warming as if they were the same thing. And even if we concede that the world is again warming, after taking a decade-long-vacation from such a progression (that’s the science), we do not really know if it is human caused or not. It is hard to know what to believe but if you believe in the mainstream press and their honest and fair representation of world events then may God help your soul.
Keating is pathetic in his challenge, “I have heard global warming skeptics make all sorts of statements about how the science doesn’t support claims of man-made climate change. I have found all of those statements to be empty and without any kind of supporting evidence.”
I wonder what Keating thinks about Nature (Record-breaking volcanic activity) and what that says about climate change. Each volcano that blows its stack has a great impact on the environment as does the recent dimming of solar activity. Some people are so obsessed with the human equation (with their own belly buttons) they go blind, deaf and dumb to the bigger universe around us.
The sun’s current space-weather cycle is the most anemic in 100 years, scientists say. Our star is now at "solar maximum," the peak phase of its 11-year activity cycle. But this solar max is weak, and the overall current cycle, known as Solar Cycle 24, conjures up comparisons to the famously feeble Solar Cycle 14 in the early 1900s, researchers said. "None of us alive have ever seen such a weak cycle. So we will learn something," Leif Svalgaard of Stanford University told reporters here today (Dec. 11) at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
CO2 concentrations continue to increase yet temperatures have been falling since 2002? Polar ice is growing. Storm intensity is in decline. One reason may be that solar activity is at the lowest level in almost a Century.
The mass media is still hammering the same old Al Gore theme but the hundred million who live in the northeastern United States are not buying it so fast after last winter. There are huge forces working in the environment and anyone who does not present these forces together in analyzing climate change and global warming is NOT TO BE TRUSTED.
Forbes Magazine jumps down hard on the New York Times saying, “In its agenda-driven desire to promote yet another fictitious global warming scare – er, now it’s “climate change” scare – the Times would have its readers believe climate “change” decimates crops and dooms human civilizations. Perhaps so, but only when such “change” results from cooling temperatures.”
Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this week. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. Until the weekend just past, the previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal, a mark hit on December 20, 2007. It was a cold summer down in Antarctica, with sea ice coverage growing about 43,500 square miles a day, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSDC). April 2014 beats the previous sea-ice coverage record from April 2008 by a whopping 124,000 square miles.
To be fair it must be said that in the Arctic things are different. though ice extent in this region continued to be above the levels of recent years through the month of June. verage June, 2014 temperatures over parts of the Arctic Ocean were from 1-2 degrees Celsius (2-4 degrees Farenheit) below the 2010 average.
With global temperature data now available for the first three months of 2014, an interesting trend has clearly emerged: global cooling. In the United States, the January-March,2014 temperature was well below the 20th-century average.
Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science shows how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records, the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Goddard shows how, in recent years, NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been “adjusting” its record by replacing real temperatures with data “fabricated” by computer models. The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data. Goddard concludes, “This leaves only two realistic possibilities. The freezing point of water has changed since 1967 US winters are getting colder, and the NCDC adjustments are complete garbage.”
Dr. David Evans said, “If the Sun mainly controls the temperature on Earth, a turning point is almost upon us. The reason for the cooling is the dramatic fall in solar radiation that started around 2004. Here is a graph of solar radiation since 1610, when sunspots were first recorded. The brown line is the solar radiation, and it peaks every 11 years or so because of the sunspot cycle. We put an 11-year smoother through it to give us the red line, which shows the trends in solar radiation.”
Sure, we have man, and we have the sun and we have the hot core beneath our feet. The sun, scientists say, is going through a weakening cycle threatening global cooling. The earth below our feet seems more disturbed and we see this in increasing earthquake and volcanic activity. The oceans are warming and scientists are discovering more and more underwater volcanoes. Why the earth itself, from on deep, demonstrates cycles of heat and expansion is anyone’s guess.

On Tuesday 19 June 2014, Northern Finland recorded the lowest temperature for this date since 1962, while large swathes of the country awoke to a blanket of white. Temperatures are running 10C (18F) below average for this time of year. Look below at the snow and hail on the second of July in Spain.
The mainstream news though will come out with another and then another article claiming manmade global warming is crashing down on humanity and it is our entire fault. The writers, editors and owners of the media are pulling a fast one over our race. They are a sick breed of humans with psychopathic tendencies that attack everyone who does not agree with them. Many scientists have joined them but they are no longer scientists but paid for fear-mongers.
The most ignorant idea in the world is that man is more powerful than the sun. The sun’s cooling is more than a match for anything else man can do but the wild card is what is happening below our feet. Hardly a week goes by without hearing about another volcanic eruption and its fact that there are many more earthquakes happening. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979.
