The answer to this important question depends on which of the three camps in the global warming (a.k.a. climate change) debate one belongs.
The first camp is comprised of those like Al Gore, the Obama administration, the United Nations, major environmental organizations, and lastly, the main stream media that has helped this camp communicate its message so comprehensively. Their well known theme is that mankind controls changes in climate by the emission of industrial greenhouse gases, primarily CO2.
The second camp is the rapidly growing opposition to the science and the politics of everything the first camp is doing. It includes the courageous Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), his new ally Senator Ted Cruz, the Heartland Institute, CFACT, and a host of truth-seeking scientists and meteorologists. Their own theme has been the exposing of the deep flaws of the greenhouse gas theory and the first camp’s attempts to take CO2, a minor though beneficial trace gas, and turn it into a dangerous global threat.
However, in their battle against each other, both groups have missed what a third and smallest camp, the ‘global cooling camp,’ says about the climate. This group is one to which I and a number of international climate researchers belong. We believe we have proven over many years, that the best climate science and best track record in climate prediction comes from following how the Sun, not mankind, controls climate variations.
So was 2014 the warmest year on record as the President and the U.S. government’s “best” science organizations, NOAA and NASA, say?
According to the results from several leading climate data bases that we follow at the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), 2014 was DEFINITELY NOT the warmest ever recorded, as we have been told by the US government. The SSRC uses multiple data sets to compile its bi-annual Global Climate Status Report (GCSR). Two of those most reliable data sets show that 2014, though unusually warm, was still somewhere between number three and number six warmest since 1979. However, at the SSRC we did note a small but important temperature spike from 2013 through 2014. In any case, the record of eighteen-plus years without any significant growth in global temperatures remains intact. I will restate for those who have not yet heard it; there is no global warming. Additionally, in the GCSR, fifteen of twenty-four climate indicators now say the world has entered a new cold climate. Only three are still displaying a warming trend.
The two scenarios for the Earth’s climate for the next three decades determined from using the best science and most accurate climate theories available, predict a much colder world ahead. They will be either a dramatically colder climate similar to the period of 1793 to 1830, or one even worse like the “Little Ice Age” from 1615 to 1745. Both scenarios forecast massive global crop losses, civil strife, and substantial loss of life. Our Russian colleagues say the Little Ice Age is the more likely future. If they are correct, the global upheaval and loss of life will be ‘biblical’ in scale! The milder scenario predicted by the SSRC will be bad enough.
Still, the first two camps are at a loss as to an explanation for why 2013 to 2014 produced the warming spike that it did. To the global cooling camp, it is no mystery at all.
The December 10, 2014 edition of the GCSR discloses the details including charts that compare the previous past solar cycles that presaged a coming cold climate with our present 11-year solar cycle. The Sun has sent us an important message via a brief period of warmth during this particular solar cycle #24, that it is about to “pull the rug out from under” the planet, sending it into decades of extreme cold.
The climate camp of the U.S. government and the United Nations and the well intended members of the camp that oppose them, both continue to avoid using the best science and climate models available.
The long history of science advises that sometimes the ‘smallest’ voice can have the most important message.
