    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.
    Meteorologist Anthony Watts compiled the results of all the sources. The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large enough to erase nearly all the global warming recorded over the past 100 years. All in one year time. For all 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.

    I don't think that anyone can deny that the human population has directly led to an increase in global CO2 levels, much of which is produced by the cattle we rely on for milk and steaks and no informed person would deny that rising CO2 levels can raise global temperatures.

    What the press didn't take into serious consideration is the effects of the sun on warming and cooling of the earth as it related to global warming.

    There have been 7 ice ages over the past 700,000 years and there is usually a 10,000 year interglacial period between ice ages. We are currently 10,800 years removed from our last ice age.

    If you can get past the notion of eating, colder would be better but plants survive within a very narrow ranges of temperatures. Cold temperatures send perennial plants into sort of a hibernation and kills annuals => animals eat plants => we eat plants and animals.

    So since we can't do anything about the Sun, now we need man-made global warming to avoid a world wide enviromental crisis.

    Ice Age sucks big time for most of NA. Ironic, Mexico will have to put up a wall to keep out all the illegal immigrants from Canada and USA.

    I am not buying the global warming stuff either. There are natural fluctuations in temperatures all the time. I think there has been damage done to the ozone layer, especially over the Antartic, but I just don't buy all the scare tactics.

    There has been some speculation that the human induced warming is tempering what would be a bigger drop in temperatures.

    That cracked me up... Q needs to see that.
