You may have seen this video before. It’s been around for awhile, but this is a good time to watch once again. Bob Carter, noted critic of climate change alarmism, says we must acknowledge that human activity has an effect on local climates, in some cases warming, in others, cooling. The case for global effects is greatly overstated by the alarmists. CO2 is a minor green house gas and will affect warming, but doubling CO2 from pre-industrial times will result in only a one degree warming. Most of that effect has already occurred. It is a waste of money to impose draconian limits on emissions and causes unnecessary harm to economies.

Scientists are so intimidated against speaking out against the alarmist view, no one knows what the consensus is. In Carter’s opinion, the majority of scientists think it is prudent to look at the human effect on climate, but at the moment we cannot say that effect is above the level of “noise”.

He warns that the real climate danger is global cooling. We may very well be in for a cooling something like that of the Little Ice Age.

We are frighteningly close to having the radical alarmists win this one.

    I have become convinced a kind of two stage ice age is kicking in right now.
    iceagenow.com has the audio link that convinced me. Both the NASA acknowledged solar retrogression cycle (sun further away for a while) and solar deep quiet, something similar to the Maunder Minimum are going on. I see it as a one two punch with less solar output, from farther away. Worse, apparently the major components of increased surface volcanic influence to produce a “cool” sky with increased solar reflectivity, and increased activity in an estimated 3 million undersea heat sources to drive moisture into that cool sky are in action. Our current record snowfall, cold, and other precipitation, is to me the leading edge of something that will last hundreds of years in the rapid onset phase, (takes as little as 3 years) then the solar retrogression effect rolls right on. I suppose solar output will come back up within a few hundred years, but solar retrogression (sun farther away) is still there. What time scale is that on? Is it thousands of years?
    According to “it’s a cycle, it’s a cycle, it’s a cycle” at iceagenow.com ALL glaciers (not exposed to one of the volcanic or geothermal heat sources) are growing. Even the glaciers on Mt. Shasta in California are growing.

      You’ve got this pegged. Space Weather.com shows the sun on a daily basis, and tracks the progression of sun spots. We have had 770 sunspot free days since the current minimum began. A typical solar minimum has about 485 spotless days. There is a wealth of info on iceagenow.com, that is sort of a Drudge Report of an aggregator of various articles on climate change. One article shows how the current minimum is deeper than the Dalton minimum. It’s way to early to tell for certain if a Maunder minimum depth will be reached, that lasted 50 years and is associated with the little ice age. Another article shows that the left hand of government doesn’t know much about the right hand. The USDA has been adjusting the frost tables for U.S. farmers, LOWER across the latitudes of the country for the last 50 years. The spring thaw comes LATER and LATER over the last several decades. All those Billions of tax dollars and they can’t even coordinate their lies. Crop production is falling, and “days on hand” of grain storage is falling like a stone, from 22 months in 2002 to less than 2 months now.

    This article

    and the graph at the end of this page

    helps put climate change in perspective.
