Do you think the title of my post is hyperbole? It isn’t. The fact — FACT — is that global temperature changes are almost directly correlated tot he sun’s activity — NOT to CO2. This is from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming:
Now, let me cut the global warming supporters off at the pass. They will claim that the correlation between the sun’s activity and global temperature changes only works if you “cherry pick” the data. the truth is, global warming only works when you both cherry pick data and use a skewed baseline by which to measure the long-term global temperature fluctuations. There is plenty of solid evidence to support a correlation between the sun’s activity and the temperature (keep in mind, the same data often shows a bit of a lag between the two – no one is asserting they are directly connected and proportionate):
ScienceDaily (Dec. 22, 2008) — An ice core drilled at the Belukha glacier in the Siberian Altai by a Swiss-Russian research team under the leadership of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in 2001 has now provided new findings in climate research. Oxygen isotopes in the ice were used to reconstruct the temperatures in the Altai over the past 750 years.
The scientists discovered a strong link between regional temperatures and the solar activity in the period 1250-1850, concluding that the sun was an important driver of preindustrial temperature changes in the Altai.
Now, I’m not arguing that any of this proves that climate change is NOT happening — I know it is. I know it has ALWAYS happened. It is an on-going natural process. However, I know enough about science to know that the claims of man-made climate change cannot be supported — at least, not until we KNOW (100% beyond shadow of a doubt KNOW) how ALL changes in the past happened and can account for them within a few percentage points. Until that time, science — real science, the type not spoiled by political agenda — tells us that we do not know enough to know how any of this is caused. We can only note correlations, and correlation is not causation.
So, what does that leave us with? it leaves us with an apparent connection between the sun’s activity and global temperature fluctuations and no to only weak connections between global temperature changes and CO2 levels. We can use CO2 as a weapon against Capitalism, but we can’t put out the sun. So I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions, but those who have studied and understand the history of the Progressive/Communist/Socialist agenda see through the facade that we know as “Global Warming/Climate Change.”
Just to put a point on my point, here’s a little “blast” from the past:
‘Fears of a coming ice age, showed up in peer-reviewed literature, at scientific conferences, by prominent scientists and throughout the media’
No, seriously, go click on those links and just skim through them. You’ll see. There’s even a claim by Time that the CIA was in on “proving” we should all be stuck in a block of ice right now.
