Nothing bothers me more than the fact that weather forecasting, despite all the wonderful satellites, continues to be very poorly done. Just as the British forecasters claimed we would be in a heat wave instead of severe cold winter, I find the US forecasts to be poorer and poorer. Many examples abound. The main problem is, the global warming ideology means ALL weather, hot, cold, dry or wet, is blamed on CO2. No mention is ever made of the sun or volcanoes, the two main drivers of sudden weather changes.
Today we have a typical example. After last winter, the weather ideologists claimed this winter would be very hot. Instead, it was very cold. They had to explain away this thing and here it is: Scientists: Long winter in U.S. the result of melting Arctic ice cap. HAHAHA. Sorry, that isn’t it.
Look, last year, when the sun was at its solar maximum, we had a very mild winter. The polar ice level was only slightly greater than this year. Now, we have a little more ocean showing and we have a very bitter, snowy winter. How can the near identical conditions of the polar ice create opposite weather patterns? The clue is simple: the sun. Suddenly this year, it ceased making sun spots which means solar output declined. Even a tiny change has huge effects on our planet which is so near the sun.
Last year, the British forecasters warned Brits that their land would become a desert and emergency water rationing was imposed and that very same week, the rains cam and poured and poured for months with lots of floods. Generally speaking, these events herald GLOBAL COOLING, not warming.
We know from records of complaints about the weather and tree ring studies that swings in the weather occur when the sun is preparing to slow down. When the sun is warming up itself, there is a surge in plant growth and human populations soar. When it suddenly begins to cool, there is famine, starvation, wars, mass migrations and other woes. We call these periods ‘Dark Ages’ and they are often the result of the sun cooling when a major volcanic explosive event happens.
The ‘interglacial norm’ we enjoy is much warmer than the Little Ice Age (which the global warming guys tried to discredit or eliminate) and a lot cooler than the first Egyptian Pyramid building culture and certainly cooler, even now, than the Minoan Empire where women walked around with exposed breasts. Try doing that in Greece today! Too cold much of the year. I suspect it was ‘summer’ all the time and statues and paintings of other people in the world show bare breasts, too.
It was warm! And the human population exploded and the farming of rice took off during the earlier warm cycles. Rice needs wet and warm! We are not at the apex of warmth for even this most recent interglacial cycle. Global warming theory imagines that the change in the Gulf Stream and other systems is what causes ice ages. But this is ridiculous. The sun and mass volcanic activity have created more than one Ice Age and these always end SUPER FAST not slow at all.
The refrigerator shuts off and a fire is lit. This fire is the sun and the freezer is the sun. Loss of ice in the North Pole should have consistent weather changes one way or the other. It can’t be simultaneously both very hot and very cold.
