Dr. George Kukla
Based on the record revealed in ocean and lake sediments, the most likely scenario over the next few thousand years is for the volume of ice in the polar regions to slowly grow, gradually dropping sea level and increasing the polar/equatorial temperature differential.
In the 1970s, leading scientists claimed that the world was threatened by an era of global cooling.
And Congress sprung into action by 1975, the first of numerous bills, such as the "National Climate Program Act of 1975," was introduced to establish a co-ordinated national program of climate research, monitoring, prediction and contingency-planning analysis. Much congressional testimony spoke of the inadequacy of climate research and the need for preparedness.
In September, 1979, President Jimmy Carter signed the National Climate Program Act into law, in aid of predicting future climate and combating global cooling. that act has now been enlisted in the effort to counter global warming.
Wait a minute the National Climate program Act which was signed into law by Jimmy Carter in 1979 to combat global cooling is being used in 2007 to combat global warming?
"Lucy you’ve got some ‘splaining to dooo!"
Who was the crackpot that advanced the theory of global cooling in the 1970s?
Why is was none other than George Kukla, micropalentologist and Special Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, a pioneer in the study of solar forcing of climate changes.
He was the lead author of the scientific paper that first supported Milutin Milankovic's theory of glacial cycles by investigating the stratigraphy in deep-sea sediment cores from the southern Indian Ocean. In the cores were clear imprints of Milankovic's proposed cycles.
In his paper he wrote, "We are certain now that changes in the Earth's orbital geometry caused the ice ages. The evidence is so strong that other explanations must now be discarded or modified." Prior to joining Columbia in 1971, he had published landmark studies in Czechoslovakia, where he was a member of the Czechoslovakian Academy of Sciences.
Okay now that we've established that he is a fanatic and a denier, why is he saying that the earth is cooling in 2007 not getting warmer as Al Gore claims?
New evidence! In a paper that Dr. Kukla only recently published, he states that he now knows that period of warming always precedes an ice age. That makes the current period of global warming a mere blip that constitutes additional indication of the ice age to come.
Also Dr. Kulka said, "I feel we're on pretty solid ground in interpreting orbit around the sun as the primary driving force behind ice-age glaciation (global cooling). The relationship is just too clear and consistent to allow reasonable doubt, it's either that, or climate drives orbit, and that just doesn't make sense."
Whoa! This is another the sun is causing climate change nut? He'd better not be right because who’s going to refund my carbon credits? Any way there is a popular consensus and everybody believes in anthropogenic climate change as created by manufactured CO2 emissions is the cause of global warming.
Politicians and environmentalists these days convey the impression that climate-change research is an exceptionally dull field with little left to discover. We are assured by everyone from David Suzuki to Al Gore to Prime Minister Stephen Harper that "the science is settled." At the recent G8 summit, German Chancellor Angela Merkel even attempted to convince world leaders to play God by restricting carbon-dioxide emissions to a level that would magically limit the rise in world temperatures to 2C.-- R. TIMOTHY PATTERSON, Financial Post
But what does Dr. Kukla believe? Based on what we've learned this decade, says George Kukla, those scientists [of the 1970s] - and he was among them -- had it right. The world is about to enter another Ice Age.
Warming or Cooling if it is the sun that is the cause for climate change I’ve lost all trust for scientists, politicians, environmentalists and proponents of climate change. Apparently it is only climate change for tax payer's dollars! Al Gore that's not right!
What you gonna do, rise (tax us of) enough money to put out the sun? Get the science right before you go making any draconian laws or raise taxes usuriously to prevent something that may not be in your power to prevent!
