Some news report, global cooling

Picture here of snow in the northern hemisphere, January 1980 vs. January 2010 or 30 years apart.

Below are some of the news reports about global cooling.

A UN IPCC scientist is honest enough to recognize that there is a pause to warming, that there is natural climate cycle of warming-cooling, vs. the dogmatic IPCC assertion of "unequivocal, unstoppable man-made warming". Dr. Latif refers to the current situation as a "mini-ice age", and is projected to last for the next 30 years,

Then the news that "December 2009 the 2nd snowiest December on record" since 1966,

The number of dead people in Europe due to severe cold is also rising,

In Florida alone, here are some news reports.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Record lows across South Florida are literally freezing the invasive iguana in its tracks. Kamikaze iguanas, plummeting from their treetop perches, have long been a Floridian urban legend. On Wednesday morning, Local 10 caught the free-falling lizard on tape.


Cold temperatures impact Florida fish and wildlife
Thu, Jan 07, 2010

The Florida manatee is one species impacted by extremely cold weather. Exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees for long periods can cause a condition called manatee cold-stress syndrome, which can result in death....

The FWC Fish Kill Hotline has received several reports of cold-related fish kills over the past few days. Extended periods of unusually cold weather can kill fish outright by cold stress or make fish more susceptible to disease.

North India Reels Under Cold Wave, 154 Dead
New Delhi | Jan 05, 2010

Cold wave claimed 157 lives across north India even as its intensity slightly abated today after the sun came out lifting the fog and raising temperature in parts of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.

In another discussion list, I asked a friend who mentioned his Filipino scientist friend who used to work for IPCC, to produce a chart, even just one chart, comparing IPCC temperature projections, say from 1990 or 2000 to 2009, vs. actual global temperatures, on those years. He did not reply. I bet IPCC scientists and writers cannot produce such chart. Because their predictions say "rising temperature" when actual temps are falling.

It is very basic scientific ethics: theory and data must conform with each other.
If they contradict, theory must give way, data must prevail. And such "theory" must be abdicated and thrown away, go back to being a hypothesis, to be subjected to a battery of further tests.

But AGW is not a theory. It is a cult, a dogma.
Even if data results contradict it, people still believe it.
that's why it's a cult.

Another friend asked, "With global cooling, what can we do about it?"
Simple: get the most stable, most reliable, and cheapest power and electricity sources for heating and prepare for even worse cooling in the coming years.

Al Gore and other climate liars remain liars. They say, "kill coal, natural gas, petrol, other energy sources that emit CO2, and prepare for more warming."
