We're now in a miniature Ice Age

Says German scientist Mojib Latif

Severe cold in the northern hemisphere has revived arguments about climate change, says this article from China TV. Some experts say the warming process has stopped, and the climate is actually becoming cooler.

Scientists draw their conclusions from water temperature data in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and take issue with beliefs that there may be no ice within the Arctic Circle by the summer of 2013.

Data from US ice and snow studies show that since 2007, the amount of ice in the Arctic during summer increases by over 1 million square kilometers, about 26 percent of the original amount.

Famous climate researcher Mojib Latif from Germany says the oceans have their own warming and cooling cycles every 20 to 30 years. According to this article, Latif concludes that the earth is in a miniature Ice Age, and that the cool trend could last 2 to 3 decades.

                   Just for the record - Latif's rebuttal

Just for the record, Mojib Latif, a climate expert at the Leibniz Institute at Kiel University in Germany, wants to make it clear that he believes in manmade global warming.

"I have said that if my name was not Mojib Latif it would be global warming," says Latif. The ocean temperature effect was similar to other natural influences on global temperature, such as volcanos, which cool the planet temporarily as ash spewed into the atmosphere reflects sunlight.

"What we are experiencing now is a weather phenomenon," says Latif. "The natural variation occurs side by side with the manmade warming. Sometimes it has a cooling effect and can offset this warming and other times it can accelerate it."

Did you catch that? "The natural variation occurs side by side with the manmade global warming."

Let me see if I can understand this.

Would that mean that even if we should slide into a full-fledged ice age, it would still be "side by side" with global warming? Just what in the h--- does that mean?  

Talk about having your cake and eating it too.
