Way cool

Pretty good news to welcome me back from vacation -- "To the Horror of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here":

Global warming which has been the subject of so many discussions in recent years, may give way to global cooling. According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless.”

That report quoted Yuri Nagovitsyn of the Pulkovo Observatory saying, “Evidently, solar activity is on the decrease. The 11-year cycle doesn’t bring about considerable climate change – only 1-2%. The impact of the 200-year cycle is greater – up to 50%. In this respect, we could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years.” In other words, another Little Ice Age.

But of course the alarmists keep talking about global warming as if it's a given. One of the Sunday talk shows was devoted to recent ugly weather and they went on an on about how such events were being exacerbated by Climate Change. Of course, it wouldn't be any better if they got on the global cooling kick -- they'd just get hysterical about that, too. Politics and science will always be a bad mix.
