|15 Sep 09 – Excerpts – “From December 6 through the
18th, a conference sponsored by the United Nations
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will gather
in Copenhagen, Denmark, to explore ways to “prevent
global warming” and I would like to be among the first to
tell all those idiots checking their passports and deciding
what to pack that they can all stay home.
“This is not an original thought on my part and, in
fact, is occasioned by Prof. Henrik Svensmark. He is director of the
Center for Sun-Climate Research at the Technical University of Denmark
and, not surprisingly, knows a lot about the Sun and climate.
“Permit me to share some of his thoughts. In a September 9th opinion
titled, “While the Sun Sleeps”, Prof. Svensmark wrote, “Last week, the
scientific team behind the SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory)
reported that the number of sunspot-free days suggest that solar
activity is heading towards its lowest level in about 100 years.”
“Everything indicates that the Sun is moving into a hibernation-like
state and the obvious question is whether it has any significance for us
on Earth.” Good question, Professor! Particularly since the Sun is the
sole source of heat for the Earth. When it takes a nap, everybody takes
“The professor then had a little professorial fun describing the Little
Ice Age that occurred after a period of medieval warmth that had begun
around 1000 AD. After 1300, however, it got a lot colder. Settlements in
Greenland disappeared. The Thames froze over repeatedly. And here’s
where we need to pay attention, there were “long periods of crop
failure.” Between starvation and disease, it reduced the population of
Europe by about a third.
of crop failure reduced the population of Europe by
about a third during the
Little Ice Age!
“As the Earth began to warm up and particularly in the last fifty years,
“solar activity has been the highest since the medieval warmth of 1,000
years ago,” said Prof. Svensmark.
“Now, keep in mind that a couple of hundred, perhaps a thousand or more
diplomats, scientists, and environmentalists are going to gather in
Copenhagen for the single purpose of extending or expanding the Kyoto
Protocols that are based on the assertion that the Earth is warming even
though it is not.
“Like the witches in Macbeth, for years the IPCC has been stirring a
cauldron of lies about global warming and the world’s media, intoxicated
by the fumes rising from the pot, have never ceased from telling us that
the Earth is warming when it is not.
“The Sun, however, is not cooperating.
“It now appears that the Sun…is heading towards what is called ‘a grand
minimum’ as we saw in the Little Ice Age,” says Prof. Svensmark.
“All those IPCC computer models that have been predicting global warming
were wrong, are wrong, and will remain wrong for all time until the
Earth actually begins to warm again.
“If, however, the Earth slips into a new Ice Age and not just a "little"
one, it will be several hundred thousand years before they are valid.
“The Copenhagen conference is, like global warming, a hoax.
“I hear it's very cold in Copenhagen in the winter.”
