Cassandra Says It Will Get Very Cold
By Alan Caruba
21 Sep 10 - In the Greek myth about Cassandra, she could foresee the future, but no one believed her warnings. Any number of solar scientists and others are warning that the Earth is on the brink of a new Ice Age at worst, a mini ice age at best. Cassandra is saying bundle up!

Nanodiamonds in Greenland Ice - Evidence of Explosions in the Sky at a Magnetic Reversal
15 Sep 10 — Trillions of tiny diamonds found in the Greenland Ice Sheet supposedly prove that a comet struck our planet about 12,900 years ago. But I don't agree. I think they provide evidence of explosions in the sky triggered by the Gothenburg magnetic reversal. See Nanodiamonds in Greenland Ice - Evidence of Explosions in the Sky at Magnetic Reversal

Goodbye Sunspots? - Hello Ice Age
15 Sep 10 - According to an article today in Science, the magnetic field

Coal and Oil Built our World - Denying Benefits to the Peasants

Extreme cold wiped out British seven times

When the first humans arrived Britain was warm, resembling modern

with these changes of climate. Often they couldn't and they died out
completely.”

Diamonds raining from the sky at a magnetic reversal

3 Jan 09 – Speculation raged across the internet yesterday after an
article in the journal Science told of diamonds drizzling to the earth
by the ton, supposedly caused by a comet exploding in mid-air.  

Forget comets. The evidence points to the Gothenburg magnetic
reversal. Magnetic reversals cause extinctions, and they trigger
evolutionary leaps.

It’s getting colder everywhere
By Alan Caruba
(Needless to say, I like this article.)
28 Jul 09 - There’s an ancient Scandinavian legend that says, “A long time
ago, the universe was made of ice. Then one day the ice began to melt and
a mist rose into the sky. Out of the mist came a giant made of frost and the
earth and the heavens were made from his body. This is how the world
began and this is how the world will end, not by fire, but by ice. The seas
will freeze and winters will never end.”

Mystery of the Missing Sunspots supposedly solved

17 Jun 09 – Sunspots have been puzzlingly scarce for more
than two years. Now, for the first time, solar physicists might
understand why. A jet stream deep inside the sun is apparently
migrating slower than usual, but "is now, finally, reaching the
critical latitude, heralding a return of solar activity in the months
and years ahead." How many months? How many years?

Earth Day - Reverting to a primitive society struggling to survive

22 Apr 09 – Email from reader - "Today is Earth Day and I can't think
of a better way to celebrate than to thank you for your excellent website.
Your efforts to educate the web community via your site and everyone
else via your books about the dangerous myth of Global Warming/Climate
Change is something that future generations will point to as the reason
sanity finally took hold - something that I'm sure will happen sooner rather
than later, because if it does not the world will lose access to electricity,
to oil needed to generate electricity and run our motorized transport
(cars, planes, trains, ...), and with that we will loose access to food. We
will revert to a primitive society struggling to survive. But then perhaps
that is what the Earth first movement wants - for mankind to be at the
same level as the animals that they believe we are.

Please keep up the great job of communicating sanity and reason to
the world.

Green "Civil Disobedience" in D.C.
1 Mar 09 - While the nation’s economy continues to crater, the
environmentalists are busy trying to divert everyone’s attention by
raising their cries about global warming. You can be sure this will
be big news so far as the mainstream media is concerned. It will
get wide coverage.

Meanwhile, the second annual International Conference on Climate
Change to be held in New York next week - a gathering of more
than 500 of the world’s leading climatologists and meteorologists,
the president of the Czech Republic, a former U.S. astronaut, and
others who will offer scientific papers and presentations that
demonstrate that global warming is a hoax - is not likely to get
media attention.

Propaganda, not journalism
24 Feb 09 – “Jagged mountains the size of the Alps have been found

that will raise worldsea levels if even a fraction of it melts,” said this article
published by Reuters. Please note that big word "if." As far as I’m
concerned, this article is misleading. The writer includes some factual
information while sneaking in agenda-driven comments.
