Global Cooling?

Posted by Jeff Id on September 28, 2010

It’s amazing if this is true.  I don’t know many who are predicting extreme cooling of any kind in the near future.  Anthony Watts pointed out a 2015 alignment of cyclic ocean temperatures in their cold phase, but that should be a short event.  Still, it doesn’t matter which way temperatures are going to the politicians as long as it is man made, and is something expensive to fix.

It is James Delingpole of the UK Telegraph again. He has just today (28 Sep 2010) broken the news about the 58th Bilderberg Meeting on 3 – 6 June 2010. This time the meeting, held in Sitges — a small Spanish city known for its tourist attractions — was attended by approximately 130 leading citizens drawn from Europe and North America. The list included leading politicians, economists, CEOs of financial institutions, industries and banks, authors, and so forth. Çakir, Ruşen, the journalist with Watan Daily of Turkey, was the only one from media. Mercifully, Bush, Blair, Al Gore and Pachauri – the great political and climate fixers — were not among the participants.

The Bilderberg Meeting draws its name from the Bilderberg hotel in Holland where the first meeting was held in 1954 to discuss critical issues of mutual importance for Europe and North America. Obviously the participants are from these two regions only. The meeting is held in private behind the closed doors allowing participants to talk and express their opinions freely. No resolutions are passed and no post-conference press releases issued. That should explain the delay in tricking out of the news about the latest meeting.

Topics of free and frank discussion in Sitges ranged from financial reform, security, cyber technology, energy, world food problem, social networking, medical science to EU-US relations. While Pakistan and Afghanistan were also discussed (that explains participation of Richard Holbrooke), terrorism as stand-alone topic was missing. Most interesting, however, is that the issue drummed to be the most critical to the very survival of us humans, the global warming/climate change, was the glaringly missing. Instead, it was — hold your breath – GLOBAL COOLING. Yes, you read correct – global cooling.

And who discussed it? Supposedly the best brains — knowledgeable and achievers in every important and modern sphere of human activity. The ones who know “which way the wind is blowing,” as Delingpole puts it.

“Skeptics” have been shouting global temperatures are falling post-1998 El Nino warming; Pacific Ocean changing to negative (cold) phase; Northern hemisphere getting buried under thick snow cover;  Californians and Kashmiris ruing for missing high summer temperatures.  But, no. They are being shouted down.

Long back I wrote the theme change from global warming to climate change is an alibi for face saving. With the secret now out it is a matter of time when the climate change theme will be made to metamorphose to global cooling, and we would see the same con-scientists and service-intellectuals in the fore-front of selling their fake wares – deception — shamelessly. Based on climate prediction modeling by Climate Change Research/Study Centers established by Governments across the world, IPCC and Ministries of Climate Change will soon be issuing warnings of 5-10o drop in temperatures within the next decade!

The exposure about Bilderberg delegates discussing global cooling should in all likelihood torpedo the upcoming Cancun meeting like climategate torpedoed the Copenhagen meeting.

  1. We do not yet know if the Bilderberg Group influenced the unholy international alliance of world leaders, scientists and publishers to manipulate and select data and news stories to support the CO2-induced global warming story:

    Al Gore, the UN’s IPCC, the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee, the US National Academy of Sciences and the research agencies that NAS controls through budget review – NASA, DOE, EPA, NOAA, etc. – the Royal Society, science journals, public TV stations, and the news media.

    We also don’t know how many fields of science have been compromised.

    If the Bilderberg Group is as powerful as some suggest, it is difficult to imagine that they were not involved in a story that became this BIG and worldwide.

    Oliver, look for Fenton Communications and left-wing think tanks (See links on their web pages) to find the roots of the “movement”. I’m more inclined to see Bilderberg as non-extremist. Especially with “global cooling” on their agenda for this year’s gathering. You may see this as extremist, but certainly not alarmist hype.

    Extreme global warming need 50 to 100 years or more, and never would exceed more than a few degrees higher form now. That could be nasty and cause some problems, but to which human society can adopt.
    Severe global cooling can happen over a very short period of time, a new ice-age can be in place within two or three winters. The ocean, with an average temperature of less than 4°C, can cause a complete icing of the Northern Hemisphere north of about 40°N instantly; with small if any chance for being prepared, at least a little bit. The oceans should be in focus, not the air.

    If Livingston and Penn’s insight into Cheshire Sunspots is borne out, and if a Grand or Lesser Minimum cools the earth, then the chances of future cooling are a lot greater than future warming, unless the climate’s sensitivity to CO2 is even higher than alarmists’ projections. We see from paleo data that temperature changes fairly dramatically, up and down, on a millenial scale. Odds are simply greater for cooling this century than for warming.

    And we’re being wrong-footed into mitigating a warming that isn’t happening instead of adapting to a cooling that is happening. We are doing almost everything exactly wrong, and when in history has it been even possible to do such a thing? It’s a hard rain gonna fall.

    Yeah, even we skeptics are gonna be sorry the “magic CO2 thermostat” is bogus! We’ll need it soon …

    I get a very uneasy feeling when looking at the graphs of Loehle and Ljungqvist. If there are any such thing as multi-decennial climate cycles, we may be very close to entering a cooling trend. And, given that the Arctic summer insolation is slightly lower now than during the LIA, the next dip may be lower than the LIA. Low enough for a point of no return and the start of a new glacial? Who knows, glaciers grew to their largest Holocene extent during the LIA, the LIA may have been very close to being the onset of a new glaciation. Also, a new cooling may well happen much faster than the slow onset of the LIA. The younger Dryas started with a 7C temperature drop in just 20 years!

    I really hope doubling CO2 warms the earth with at least 1C, I really do, but I’m afraid it may be only 0.5 C, and that’s probably not enough to stop this train. Gotta plan retirement in a warm place 😉

    #6 Espen,

    I agree. If you tell me it is going to warm up 3C and the oceans could get deeper in a hundred years, I’m not at all worried. If you tell me that temps are going down 3C, that scares the crap out of me. Not that humanity and life in general can’t adapt in either situation, but adaptation to severe cold would probably be a deadly process. You think we’ve got immigration problems in the US now.

    Lets see…

    The biggest global warming issue: where to store the bumper crops.

    If I understand correctly. Warming will act mostly at high latitudes, in winter, and at night. I also read rain will increase. So more rain during a longer growing season over expanded crop ranges – and free fertilizer to boot.

    Ya know, it’s been warming for 2 centuries (more or less) can we plot human prosperity versus temperature – just for grins – that might provide a clue.

    Jeff, it’s disconcerting to calculate that a mere 5% die-off of the human race is 350,000,000 people. That is not an outrageous speculation for the potential cooling ahead, what with war, famine, disease, and the rest of the barn. What amuses me is that no protected elite can be insulated from the consequences of such a disaster, particularly not an elite which so wrong-footed the race.

    Yes, there will be many bonfires … >:)

    Kim and 350 million people –

    Dr Strangelove in the Pentagon War Room: (Executes an about face from the big board to face the camera). Mr. President, I would not rule out the chance to preserve a nucleus of human specimens. It would be quite easy… heh heh… at the bottom of ah … some of our deeper mineshafts. The radioactivity would never penetrate a mine some thousands of feet deep. And in a matter of weeks, sufficient improvements in dwelling space could easily be provided.

    President Muffley: How long would you have to stay down there?

    Strangelove: Well let’s see now ah, cobalt thorium G. Radioactive halflife of uh,… hmm.. I would think that uh… possibly uh… one hundred years. (On finishing his calculations, he pulls the slide rule roughly from his gloved hand, and returns it to within his jacket).

    Muffley: You mean, people could actually stay down there for a hundred years?

    Strangelove: It would not be difficult mein Fuhrer! Nuclear reactors could, heh… I’m sorry. Mr. President. Nuclear reactors could provide power almost indefinitely. Greenhouses could maintain plantlife. Animals could be bred and slaughtered. A quick survey would have to be made of all the available mine sites in the country. But I would guess… that ah, dwelling space for several hundred thousands of our people could easily be provided.

    Muffley: Well I… I would hate to have to decide.. who stays up and.. who goes down.

    Strangelove: Well, that would not be necessary Mr. President. It could easily be accomplished with a computer. And a computer could be set and programmed to accept factors from youth, health, sexual fertility, intelligence, and a cross section of necessary skills. Of course it would be absolutely vital that our top government and military men be included to foster and impart the required principles of leadership and tradition. (Slams down left fist. Right arm rises in stiff Nazi salute. Arrrrr! Restrains right arm with left). Naturally, they would breed prodigiously, eh? There would be much time, and little to do. But ah with the proper breeding techniques and a ratio of say, ten females to each male, I would guess that they could then work their way back to the present gross national product within say, twenty years.

    Muffley: But look here doctor, wouldn’t this nucleus of survivors be so grief stricken and anguished that they’d, well, envy the dead and not want to go on living?

    Strangelove: No sir… (Right arm rolls his wheelchair backwards. Excuse me. Struggles with wayward right arm, ultimately subduing it with a beating from his left). Also when… when they go down into the mine everyone would still be alive. There would be no shocking memories, and the prevailing emotion will be one of nostalgia for those left behind, combined with a spirit of bold curiosity for the adventure ahead! Ahhhh! (Right arm reflexes into Nazi salute. He pulls it back into his lap and beats it again. Gloved hand attempts to strangle him).

    General Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ration of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn’t that necessitate the abandonment of the so called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?

    Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious… service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature……

    Lateral thinking, ingenuity, has helped the human populace before.

    As great as that film was (I’ve seen it six times), it was a vicious calumny on Dr. von Braun.

    The kind of ingenuity now needed is not one which involves hiding and fornicating in mineshafts. My hopes and money are on an under-the-radar effort by LPP, Inc. (see ). It is on track to achieve scientific break-even this year or shortly thereafter, followed by 2-4 yrs. of intensive engineering to create a licensable design for a prefab waste-free 5MW mini-generator to be made world-wide. That will render the Warmists and their watermelonish friends irrelevant.

    I will cackle loudly and rudely.

  13. Brian H said

    Forgot to mention: the capital and running costs of the above generator will be about 1/20 of current best N.A. pricing. The resulting economic boom will blow the lid off any and all previous records. Greenies will die in droves, of agonizing cognitive dissonance.
