Are We In For Thirty Years Of Cooling?

I have written many times that ocean currents control the climate of earth and some in major ways. We have all heard about the El Nino and La Nina shifts in the Pacific that occur every few years and last for a year or so and how they can have dramatic impacts on the weather. Well there is a larger shift underway that occurs every twenty to thirty five years called the Pacific Decadal Oscilation and lasts just as long. Satelite imagery shows it switching from it warm mode to its cool mode as the graphs and pictures show in this pdf document by Don Easterbrook of Western Washington University's Dept. of Geology. It had been in its warm mode from about 1977 to 1998 accounting for much of the warming we had experienced and for the global cooling scare prior to that. I am not a scientist but that seems to also coincide with solar cycles that also play a large role in global temperatures. Other evidnce points out that higher CO2 levels in the atmosphere are caused by this warming and that CO2 does not cause the warming. If you can't view the pdf document the article is also at Icecap and here is a snippet.

Addressing the Washington Policymakers in Seattle, WA, Dr. Don Easterbrook said that shifting of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) from its warm mode to its cool mode virtually assures global cooling for the next 25-30 years and means that the global warming of the past 30 years is over. The announcement by NASA that the (PDO) had shifted from its warm mode to its cool mode is right on schedule as predicted by past climate and PDO changes (Easterbrook, 2001, 2006, 2007) and is not an oddity superimposed upon and masking the predicted severe warming by the IPCC. This has significant implications for the future and indicates that the IPCC climate models were wrong in their prediction of global temperatures soaring 1F per decade for the rest of the century.

Just another inconvenient truth for Al Gore and his gaggle of scaremongers that he is making millions from. Al Gore is a politician with a socialist agenda and not a scientist, he got Ds and Fs in the sciences while in college. The climate is not a static thing and never has been, it has been in a state of flux for millions of years and will continue to be no matter what man does or does not do. The earth likewise is not a stable or static thing and is constantly in a state of change and man does not have any control over it.
There is at least a half dozen very interesting articles at Icecap so if you are interested in debunking the warmists head on over there and read around at they update daily so bookmark them.

Thanks, Goat. More evidence that global warming is merely a social engineering scheme. I had never heard of teh Pacific Decadal Oscillation before. That's kind of a inconvenient truth for the anthropogenic global warming crowd.

By the way, I run the American Solutions Independent Blogroll. We'd love for you to join. You can check out the home page at americassentinel (dot) com and email me at pzannucci (at)gmai.com if you are interested.

Wow, Goat. An invitation from American Solutions. That's quite an honor! :)
