ECONUTS, OCEAN FERTILIZATION AND B.S.

USA Today reported on Friday, Feb. 25 that scientists are now saying they can use geoengineering to "...put a freeze on global warming." In the front page article, USA Today quoted an environmental economist, Scott Barrett of Columbia University who noted that the scientific community should be asking if "...geoengineering could work, rather than waiting until it becomes a necessity...We're moving into a different kind of world."
I agree with Barnett's second statement. We are moving into a different kind of world. It's called global cooling. Don't expect the scholastic global warming ecowackos to acknowledge global cooling just because the US Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works, on Feb. 27, 2008, reported that global cooling was currently underway. While the environmentalists were decrying what they called "Earth's fever" to fan global warming fears as their political allies on the left on Capitol Hill pushed hard in 2008 to enact Cap & Trade legislation that would allow "friends of the left" to get rich buying and selling carbon credits.
Senator Jim Inhofe's Environment & Public Works press blogger, Marc Morano quoted a Daily Tech report which cited anecdotal evidence that the planet has entered a cooling phase. China has been experiencing its coldest winters in 100 years. Baghdad reported snow for the first time in recorded history. Temperatures lingered around freezing and the Baghdad airport was closed due to poor visibility. Baghdad residents admitted the only snow they had ever seem prior to that morning was in movies. North America had the most snowfall in 50 years, with Wisconsin recording the highest levels of snow since record-keeping began. Record cold spells occurred in Florida, Minnesota, and Texas; and in Australia, Chile, Greece, Greenland, Iran, Mexico—and the thickness of Antarctic sea ice (which the ecowackos claim is thinning so much that the Antarctica ice sheet is in danger of disappearing. The list of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C—a value large enough, the Daily Tech reported, to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100 years. All of this occurred in one year, and it is the single fastest temperature change ever recorded—either up or down.
Scientists linked the cooling to reduced solar activity which they noted is the primary driver of climate change. The scientist at all four global temperature tracking outlets—Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH and RSS—affirmed that while science has not proved that carbon dioxide is responsible for warming the planet, evidence now exists to prove that reduced solar activity is now cooling it.
Dr. Kenneth Tapping, a solar researcher and project director for Canada's National Research Council predicted a new ice age on Feb. 9, 2008. Tapping is worried about the sun. The sunspot activity that was the hallmark of Solar Cycle 24 has all but vanished, and activity is conspicuously quiet. The last time this happened was between 400 to 700 years ago when a solar event known as a Maunder Minimum happened and the world entered into what became known as the "Little Ice Age." During the Little Ice Age, global temperatures dropped sharply and glaciers in Norway grew up to 100 meters a year, destroying farms and villages. Norse Icelandic Vikings settled Greenland in the late 10th century. Climate change, brought on by the Little Ice Age, which began around 1300 changed the fortunes of the Vikings By 1378, almost all of the the Vikings were gone. By the 1500s the climate in Greenland was dangerously inhospitable, and only a handful of Arctic Induit Indians remained.
In 2005, Russian astronomer Khabibullo Abdusamatov predicted that the sun would soon peak, triggering a rapid decline in world temperatures. In 2008, his views were echoed by Dr. Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow at the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, who advised the world to "...stock up on fur coats." Sorokhtin, who affirmed that man's contribution to climate change amounted to a "drop in the bucket," said that we will hit a "solar minimum" by 2040, and the icy weather would last until 2100 or beyond.
Confirming the Russian findings is Dr. Timothy Patterson, Director of the Geoscience Center at Carleton University. Patterson's research has also centered on the correlations between solar fluctuations and weather and the relationship, he said, which does not exist between CO2 and climate change. Patterson's research, he noted, shows "...the sun is the ultimate source of energy on this planet."
In 1991, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study showing that world temperatures over the past several centuries correlate very closely with solar cycles. A post-2004 DMI study further corroborated their 1991 study adding a key weather factor—the sun's magnetosphere which shields the Earth from more cosmic rays which act as "seeds" for cloud formation. The less clouds, the warmer the planet. When the seed field weakens, cloud layers increase, reflecting more light back into space, causing the Earth to cool.
This is the type of thing geoengineering would do artificially, creating the same side effects the geoengineers and econuts are talking about to cool a planet which is already cooling too fast on its own. National Academy of Science president Ralph Cicerone, a climate advisor to former Vice President Al Gore, Jr., and a "climate realist" according to the leftwing Center for American Progress, insists—without evidence—that the world's average temperature will increase by 3° to 7° by the end of the century, making such drastic measures necessary. All of this as the world is very rapidly cooling.

Once again greedy men, in a hurry to promulgate a Cap & Trade profit center to enrich the envirosocialists are advocating Cap & Trade as necessary to save the world from itself, are really advocating for trillions of dollars in fines and taxes which will be paid by the middle classes in the industrialized nations in the form of higher energy and commodity prices as the princes of industry and barons of banking speed up their efforts to redistribute the wealth of industrialized nations to the emerging nations which they now call "home." Global warming is not only a myth, it is—and always has been—a deliberate fraud, fabricated for obscene profit by greedy men with the ability to create the punitive laws of the industrialized nations because they own the votes of the lawmakers who theoretically write the laws which are actually written by the lobbyists of the princes of industry.
