Where is that ‘Global Warming’?

Warming temps should end worst cold snap since 2000

Bitter Cold, Snow Pummel Plains, East

And this report on Global Cooling:

The Sun Also Sets

Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles.

Solar activity fluctuates in an 11-year cycle. But so far in this cycle, the sun has been disturbingly quiet. The lack of increased activity could signal the beginning of what is known as a Maunder Minimum, an event which occurs every couple of centuries and can last as long as a century.

The study concludes that if you shut down all the world’s power plants and factories, “there would not be much effect on temperatures.”

But if the sun shuts down, we’ve got a problem. It is the sun, not the Earth, that’s hanging in the balance.

If you think ‘Global Warming’ is bad, wait until Global Cooling hits. You can’t grow food very well when it is freezing outside. And we don’t have enough indoor space to grow food to support us either.
