Global Cooling - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Earlier this month, the Heartland Institute sponsored the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change in New York. The Conference differed from most such events in that it was devoted to science, not politics or propaganda. Heartland has now made the materials presented at the conference available online, here. You can review the agenda, watch videos of the keynote presentations, read transcripts of some of the speeches, and see the Power Points that were presented by the speakers. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Original article

These are a few of the many slides that I found interesting. This one, by Dennis Avery, puts the climate swings of the last 12,000 years (i.e., since the last Ice Age) in perspective; click to enlarge:

This one, by Syun Akasofu, also takes a long-term view, and compares the politically-driven prediction by the UN's IPCC with the historical trend as the earth has recovered from the Little Ice Age:

Don Easterbrook makes the basic point that, contrary to the hysterical predictions of the alarmists, the earth is cooling, not warming:

This one by Dennis Avery shows the lack of any correlation between atmospheric CO2 and temperatures in the atmosphere:

Don Easterbrook compares the correlations of solar activity and CO2 concentration to temperature. It seems pretty obvious where the explanation for fluctuations in temperature lies:

Due to the efforts of Heartland and others, the public is beginning to catch on to the cosmic scam that Al Gore, James Hansen and others--mostly not scientists--have been perpetrating. Meanwhile, the Obama administration, seemingly determined to inflict the maximum possible damage on the economy in the shortest time, is trying to ram a cap-and-trade carbon tax through Congress before opposition can be mobilized. It's easier to do that, of course, when you know that Congressmen won't read the statute before they vote on it. So our only hope is an informed citizenry.

Hey Amp.... may I call you Amp ;-)

Yeah the Algories have switched their lingo now to calling it "climate change" now that it looks like the Sunspot activity has gone dormant and everything is cooling down. It's no longer "Global Warming." What a bunch of fricking idiots! Why in the hell does anybody pay any attention to those morons? Fat Al's Nobel Prize should be taken from him. My god how many carbon credits does Al have to buy from himself to offset the gas coming from all the grazing he does? Fat piece of crap.

The next wave (no pun intended) of real estate disasters will be people who sold their oceanfront homes for fear of going underwater in 20 years, and those who bought homes 5 miles inland counting on owning waterfront in 20 years.

I just laugh. :smt005
