They’re Out to Get
21 Mar 07 - Listen up - here's what was then the prevailing opinion
among the climatologists:
"The penultimate interglacial age began about 125,000 years ago, and lasted for approximately 10,000 years. Similar interglacial ages - each lasting 10,000 plus or minus 2000 years and each followed by a glacial maximum - have occurred on the average every 100,000 years during at least the past half-million years.
Who said that? None other than the National Academy of Sciences! (Understanding Climate Change, published by the National Academy of Sciences in 1975 -- page 181).
On page 189 they asked "When will the present interglacial [period] end?
Their answer: "Few paleoclimatoligists would dispute that the prominent warm periods (or interglacials) that have followed each of the terminations of the major glaciations have had durations of 10,000 plus or minus 2000 years. In each case, a period of considerably colder climate has followed immediately after the interglacial interval.
"In geological prospective, the case for cooling is strong ... we may reasonably suppose the world is about due to slide into the next ice age." In 1997 I wrote that this was the prevailing opinion among paleoclimatologists.
Unless Al Gore and his fellow would-be masters of the Universe have somehow managed to repeal what history has shown to be an iron clad law of nature, we are heading not for increasing global warming but instead for a new period of glaciation.
What concerns me at the moment is that the media-fed hysteria might well cause the nation - and the world - to accept the most punitive kind of restrictions on our way of life - restrictions which will drive a dagger through the heart of our economy to prevent something from happening that is simply not happening.
