Lack of solar activity coincides with cooling
trend across the world


5 Sep 08 - Evidence that the planet is tip-toeing towards the onset of a new mini ice age continues following unprecedented ice storms in Kenya and the coldest August in 60 years in Sydney.

The cold snap arrives on the back of the Sun reaching a milestone not observed in nearly 100 years – the entire month of August passed without a single sunspot being noted.

But don’t worry: according to the World Wildlife Fund, global cooling can just as easily be blamed on CO2 emissions as can global warming.

Earlier this year, China experienced its coldest winter in 100 years while northeast America was hit by record snow levels and Britain suffered its coldest April in decades as late-blooming daffodils were pounded with hail and snow almost daily.

The British summer also left many yearning for global warming, with temperatures in June and July struggling to get over 16 degrees and on one occasion even dropping as low as 9 degrees in the middle of the afternoon.

“Summer heat continues in short supply, continuing a trend that has dominated much of the 21st Century’s opening decade,” reports the Chicago Tribune. “There have been only 162 days 90 degrees or warmer at Midway Airport over the period from 2000 to 2008. That’s by far the fewest 90-degree temperatures in the opening nine years of any decade on record here since 1930.”

The Old Farmers Almanac now also predicts “below-average temperatures for most of the U.S.” The publication boasts of an 85 per cent accuracy rate for its forecasts which are given two years in advance.

According to the World Meteorological Organization, the first half of 2008 was the coolest in at least five years, perhaps since 2000. Meanwhile, Arctic ice has expanded by 30 percent since this time last year as respected scientists predict a new mini ice age within 10 years.

So what’s to blame for the sudden cold snap affecting many parts of the globe?

Could it be the rapid decrease in solar activity, an event that has always preceded similar mini-ice age periods throughout history?

Not according to the World Wildlife Fund, who blame human-caused CO2 emissions for the cold snap. 

That’s right - in case you weren’t aware of the new climate change catch-all explanation, CO2 now causes global warming as well as global cooling.

               I can’t believe the number of people trying to persuade
               us that the Sun doesn’t drive our climate. Have they ever
               noticed that it gets colder at night after the Sun sets, and
               warmer in the morning after the Sun rises? Whatever
               happened to common sense?
