Poof. Just like that, global warming hysteria is starting to evaporate. Consider this from Lorne Gunter of Canada’s National Post:
Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University, says, "It’s practically a slam dunk that we are in for about 30 years of global cooling," as the sun enters a particularly inactive phase. His examination of warming and cooling trends over the past four centuries shows an "almost exact correlation" between climate fluctuations and solar energy received on Earth, while showing almost "no correlation at all with CO2."
…weather-satellite scientists David Douglass of the University of Rochester and John Christy of the University of Alabama at Huntsville nonetheless dealt the True Believers a devastating blow last month.
For nearly 30 years, Professor Christy has been in charge of NASA’s eight weather satellites that take more than 300,000 temperature readings daily around the globe. In a paper co-written with Dr. Douglass, he concludes that while manmade emissions may be having a slight impact, "variations in global temperatures since 1978 … cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide."
Ouch. Now, if any politician even THINKS about taxing energy during this recession (or during a growth period for that matter), he should be impeached. (Read the whole article here.)
