    Since he is to blame for global warming, he must be a hero for this!

    http://www.dailytech.com/Temperature Monitors Report Worldwide Global Cooling/article10866.htm

    Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming

    Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.

    No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

    A compiled list of all the sources can be seen here. The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large enough to wipe out nearly all the warming recorded over the past 100 years. All in one year's time. For all four sources, it's the single fastest temperature change ever recorded, either up or down.

    Scientists quoted in a past DailyTech article link the cooling to reduced solar activity which they claim is a much larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases. The dramatic cooling seen in just 12 months time seems to bear that out. While the data doesn't itself disprove that carbon dioxide is acting to warm the planet, it does demonstrate clearly that more powerful factors are now cooling it.

    Let's hope those factors stop fast. Cold is more damaging than heat. The mean temperature of the planet is about 54 degrees. Humans -- and most of the crops and animals we depend on -- prefer a temperature closer to 70.

    Historically, the warm periods such as the Medieval Climate Optimum were beneficial for civilization. Corresponding cooling events such as the Little Ice Age, though, were uniformly bad news.

    George Bush makes it snow!!!


    Forget global warming: Welcome to the new Ice Age

    Lorne Gunter, National Post Published: Monday, February 25, 2008

    Snow cover over North America and much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966.

    The U.S. National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) reported that many American cities and towns suffered record cold temperatures in January and early February. According to the NCDC, the average temperature in January "was -0.3 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average."

    China is surviving its most brutal winter in a century. Temperatures in the normally balmy south were so low for so long that some middle-sized cities went days and even weeks without electricity because once power lines had toppled it was too cold or too icy to repair them.

    There have been so many snow and ice storms in Ontario and Quebec in the past two months that the real estate market has felt the pinch as home buyers have stayed home rather than venturing out looking for new houses.

    In just the first two weeks of February, Toronto received 70 cm of snow, smashing the record of 66.6 cm for the entire month set back in the pre-SUV, pre-Kyoto, pre-carbon footprint days of 1950.

    And remember the Arctic Sea ice? The ice we were told so hysterically last fall had melted to its "lowest levels on record? Never mind that those records only date back as far as 1972 and that there is anthropological and geological evidence of much greater melts in the past.

    The ice is back.

    Gilles Langis, a senior forecaster with the Canadian Ice Service in Ottawa, says the Arctic winter has been so severe the ice has not only recovered, it is actually 10 to 20 cm thicker in many places than at this time last year.

    OK, so one winter does not a climate make. It would be premature to claim an Ice Age is looming just because we have had one of our most brutal winters in decades.

    But if environmentalists and environment reporters can run around shrieking about the manmade destruction of the natural order every time a robin shows up on Georgian Bay two weeks early, then it is at least fair game to use this winter's weather stories to wonder whether the alarmist are being a tad premature.

    And it's not just anecdotal evidence that is piling up against the climate-change dogma.

    According to Robert Toggweiler of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University and Joellen Russell, assistant professor of biogeochemical dynamics at the University of Arizona -- two prominent climate modellers -- the computer models that show polar ice-melt cooling the oceans, stopping the circulation of warm equatorial water to northern latitudes and triggering another Ice Age (a la the movie The Day After Tomorrow) are all wrong.

    "We missed what was right in front of our eyes," says Prof. Russell. It's not ice melt but rather wind circulation that drives ocean currents northward from the tropics. Climate models until now have not properly accounted for the wind's effects on ocean circulation, so researchers have compensated by over-emphasizing the role of manmade warming on polar ice melt.

    But when Profs. Toggweiler and Russell rejigged their model to include the 40-year cycle of winds away from the equator (then back towards it again), the role of ocean currents bringing warm southern waters to the north was obvious in the current Arctic warming.

    Last month, Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, shrugged off manmade climate change as "a drop in the bucket." Showing that solar activity has entered an inactive phase, Prof. Sorokhtin advised people to "stock up on fur coats."

    He is not alone. Kenneth Tapping of our own National Research Council, who oversees a giant radio telescope focused on the sun, is convinced we are in for a long period of severely cold weather if sunspot activity does not pick up soon.

    The last time the sun was this inactive, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age that lasted about five centuries and ended in 1850. Crops failed through killer frosts and drought. Famine, plague and war were widespread. Harbours froze, so did rivers, and trade ceased.

    It's way too early to claim the same is about to happen again, but then it's way too early for the hysteria of the global warmers, too.

    I'm sure this was all predicted by Gorestradamus.

    What you fail to understand is that EVERYTHING is a result of global warming... snow, rain, hurricanes, drought, you name it. Global cooling is simply one of the dangerous side-effects of global warming.

    Fortunately, according to Gorestradamus, the solution for all climate change is the exact same, regardless of the symptoms.

    Ah, he's created a no lose scenario for himself.

    And there are people that actually think he is on to something.

    Did he use the same weather machine that he used to kill all the people during Katrina?

    I think the same scientist that Reagan had create AIDS created that machine.

    Why are the liberals on this board avoiding this thread????

    I know they read it because of the title. Normally they would be in here going crazy.

    Maybe because they are without defense.

    Because they only deal with Bush bashing and have done so since losing the 2000 election.

    So you guys don't believe in global warming? Is that what this thread is about?

    I think Global warming is taking place I also think in large part this is a natural occurrence as was the different ice ages in the earth history as well as other periods of global warming that took place were natural changes. The earth has seen many drastic climate changes and is ever changing and like all species we will adapt or fall to the way side. Having said that I want to see reductions in pollutants that could be causing the speeding up of these events what I don’t want to do is to enter into a treaty that is bad for our country and economy as other competing nations have not done so. I figure if this is a world problem then all counties should adhere to it

    I don't believe man is causing it. I don't believe man can stop it and I don't believe that it is a big deal.

    This article pretty much proves that.

    Kind of hard to take a thread serious when the title says what it does.

    I think the last thing I would ever call Bush is a Hero.

    I'm sure that if I did a google search, I could find a thousand articles that says that it does exist. I mean the majority of the scientific world believes it.

    It's hard to believe that someone would argue against it.

    Doesn't the soon to be republican nominee believe in global warming? I thought I heard him talking about it.

    No, I've never read it. I'll have to look into it.

    even global cooling? seems if everything is the fault of 1 thing, you're pretty covered in whatever may happen.

    it was the warmest of times, it was the coldest of times...

    cover those bases! : )

    They predicted longer harder winters, more moisture in the air, the more snow. We had tornadoes in january, in wisconsin. This is unhearof. It hasnt been cold its been 33 most days, the roads are slushy right now. WHY DO CONSERVATIVES CONSTANTLY AVOID SCIENTISTS?

    The point was that since the left said that Bush and his kind was at fault of everything including the global warming thing, he should get credit when it cools.

    I would have thought the sarcasm wouldn't have escaped you.

    Because they predicted the worst hurricane season in history. Didn't happen. They predicted the oceans would dry up by the year 2000. Didn't happen. They predicted another Ice Age. Didn't happen.

    They are wrong too often to be taken that seriously.

    I got both your and Danny's sarcasm.

    Anytime something is wrong you take the same route.

    I just stated that I doubt too many people are interested in it because it is not like we have not have a butt load of Global Warming type threads already.
