The Coming Ice Age

The information in the article is based on a peer-reviewed paper from two Russian scientists, who looked at the real world data and trends, as well as the solar processes, and say that this could lead to a climate similar to the Little Ice Age (PS for Warmists: it’s not just about sun spots, but the overall activity of the Sun along with its magnetism).

Again, to be clear, until it happens, it’s all conjecture. Just like the notion that this current warm period is caused by Mankind. Well, except that the climate does switch between warm and cool.
It's that big yellow thing in the sky.

(The actual Die Welt article is here--where is that "translate this page" link?)

Wasn't that what James Hansen said in the 70s? Pollution was going to lead to a second ice age? Wait, is that the same James Hansen hanging out with ALGORE about global warming? Is there a connection there? Naa, can't be.

It's the operation of the free market.

Where there's a demand, in this case to enjoy the conceit of intellect and responsibility without any of the tiresome demands of either, there's a supply, in this case Al Gore, James Hansen, Micheal Moore, et al.

Another neat article on the puzzlement with non-rising temperatures - - which has this delightful line:

"given the hiatus in warming and all the new evidence, a small reduction in estimates of climate sensitivity would seem to be justified."

Gee, ya think?

Of course the problem with too great an emphasis on evidence is that sometimes the evidence doesn't support the proper conclusion. Best then not to concern yourself with that non-conforming evidence and concentrate on everything that isn't driven by evidence. Like consensus and publishing.
