Here we go again

If the scientific media consensus flips again to global cooling, I have a long, long list of people, especially scientists, that I am going to mercilessly mock.

Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles. To many, those data were convincing. Now, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better “eyes” with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth’s climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined.

And they’re worried about global cooling, not warming.

I’m so sick of scientists being “worried”. It’s inevitably a sign of irresponsible science journalists or science whores looking for their next government trick. Thus far, the undeniable evidence – admittedly non-scientific, but historical – is that the planet has survived 100 percent of the previous “worries” raised.
