“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Shocker: Summit in Copenhagen Says Warming Due to Solar Activity

In a shocking development, a group of scientists meeting in Copenhagen during the UN Climate Change Conference have found that the recent warming on earth is due to solar activity.

From the British Telegraph:

Professor Henrik Svensmark, a physicist at the Danish National Space Center in Copenhagen, said the recent warming period was caused by solar activity.

He said the last time the world experienced such high temperatures, during the medieval warming period, the Sun and the Earth were in a similar cycle.

Professor Nils-Axel Morner, a geologist from Stockholm University, said sea level rise has also been exaggerated by the “climate alarmists” using computer models.

He said observational data from lake sediments, coast lines and trees show sea levels have remained stable.

Professor Cliff Ollier, another geologist from the University of Western Australia, also said the environmental lobby have got it wrong on ice caps. He said the melting of ice sheets is caused by geothermal activity rather than global surface temperatures.

Professor Ian Plimer, from the University of Adelaide, claimed carbon dioxide from volcanoes rather than humans is driving warming as part of a natural process.

Of course, these scientists weren’t invited to the UN gala affair; their invitations must have been lost in the mail.

There these killjoys go again, blowing Al Gore’s claims of “consensus.”  Didn’t these scientists get the memo that this “science” is “settled”?  They’re not supposed to look at any new data, er, different data, er, data not approved by global warming enthusiasts.

Rather than look at the immense amount of data that points to solar activity and natural, cyclic climate change, it’s so much easier to just believe SUVs and power plants are doing it. Who needs to be bothered with all these cumbersome facts when assumptions and flights of fancy are so much easier?

  1. It is 2 degrees here right now and will soon be in the minus digits. This is global warming? Then why am I freezing?

  2. Sound like the scientists have been smoking too much pot. WE have global warming and if WE don’t take action now. You, your children and if you grandchildren live will see the results.

  3. A balmy -10 here right now. Al Gore was right on target!

  4. I don't think they're the ones smoking pot CROW!

  5. Those folks interested in Svensmark's theory should read the book co-authored with former New Scientist editor Nigel Calder entitled “The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change”. Svensmark tracks repeated cycling back and forth between “hot house” earth and “ice ball” earth for the last 250,000 years with special emphasis on the time period since the last great ice age. The data is convincing and the theory plausible challenging the reader to accept Climate Change as real, but not a question of Man Vs Nature, but Nature AND Man with heavy long term emphasis on Nature. The last mini ice age that correlated to a quiet sun with few if any sunspots for centuries began about 1250 A.D and ended about 1850 A.D.. The onset of this mini ice age correlates with the collapse of the peublo cliff dwelling agricultural dependent Anastasi indians of the American Southwest and the Viking settlements of Greenland. Svensmark's book points out that climate change can occur rapdily within a few years or a generations life time and often the end effect is bad for humanity; moist winters and dry summers meaning drought and famine. Read the book if you get the chance and change the debate to sustainability for a human species that will double in two generations time.

  6. The readers of this column are encouraged to read the book by Henrik Svensmark and Nigel Calder entitled “The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change”. Svensmark's research is peer reviewed and very good. Sadly his voice has laregly been drowned out despite his conclusion that climate change is not only real but historic fact stretching back before modern man started walking on two legs. Svensmark details how earth's climate swings back and forth between “hot house” earth and “ice ball” earth. The last mini ice age that began around ~1250 A.D. and lasted until ~1850 A.D. correlated with the sun going quiet with few if any sunspots for centuries. This time period also coincides with the collapse of the Viking colonies of Greenland and the disappearance of the Anastasi pueblo cliff dwelling indians of the (American) south west due to agricultural collapse, famine, war and cannibalism. In short, natural climate change is not generally very good for humanity when things get cold, winters get long and moist and the summer's turn dry and the soil blows away. Read the book and start asking the question; If Climate Change is Nature AND Man then shouldn't the debate be about human sustainability given the pending doubling of the world's population in two generations time?

  7. Are you angry about this obvious fraud and the national media's complicity in the cover-up, misinformation, reframing and misdirection of the issue? Take responsibility and take action. STOP all donations to the political party(s) responsible for this fraud. STOP donations to all environmental groups which funded this Global Warming propaganda campaign with our money, especially The Environmental Defense Fund. They have violated the public trust. KEEP donations local, close to home. MAKE donations to Oklahoma’s Senator Inhofe, the only politician to stand firmly against this obvious government/media coordinated information operation (propaganda) targeted at its own people. People that government leaders and employees are sworn to protect. WRITE your state and federal representatives demanding wall to wall investigations of government sponsored funding and coordination of this and related propaganda campaigns and demand indictments of those responsible.
