Preparing for an ice age

I have never believed in this man-made global warming shit.

From the start, logic alone told me that the influence that man has on the climate is miniscule at best.  It's like a supertanker's cat being afraid to go near the side of the ship in case his weight capsizes it. 

The Earth's climate is an vast intricate machine on a cosmic scale.  It would therefore take something on an equally cosmic size to affect it, and that is obviously the sun.  When you realise that the Sun constantly pumps something like 174,000 Terrawatts at the Earth [that’s 174,000,000,000,000,000 Watts, 24 hours a day] you realise the scale of things.

Of course the fact that the Sun is variable in its output is a boon to the Warble Gloamists as they can blame the variations on mankind and then spend billions [nay, trillions] on trying to fix the unfixable.  By the time mankind wakes up to the Big Con, it's too late and the fortunes have been made.

I read with interest Christopher Booker's latest where once again he debunks the latest frantic claims about ice caps shrinking and alarming warnings that the sky is about to fall on our heads.  The debunking of the alarming predictions is now as commonplace as the predictions themselves.

What caught my attention though was a wee link buried in the comments.

Irregular heartbeat of the Sun driven by double dynamo

Now here is an eminent society producing a model that predicts events with a 97% accuracy [compared to the 0% accuracy of the Warble Gloamists].  What's more, this is on a cosmic scale so if I were a betting man I would place my entire vast fortune betting that their predictions of climate change are damn near on the mark.

So they predict that in fifteen to twenty years we are going to experience another Maunder Minimum, or to put it in layman's terms – a mini ice-age.  This is going to upset the Gloamists considerably, but they'll probably just claim that the ice-age is due to the success of their efforts and demand more taxes.

So my advice is to get out those fossil fuel burners.  Burn as much crap as you can in your garden.  Bring back London Smog.  It won't make the blindest bit of difference to the climate but it might keep us warm enough to survive.

And if the Glaomists really want someone to blame for the disappearing ice caps, I suggest they look to Belfast.

There's a hotel there selling melted ice-cap [i.e. plain fucking water] at €37 a bottle

Another enterprise taking money off fools because of melting ice.

Preparing for an ice age — 16 Comments

  1. H H Lamb of the UEA (Yes – the very same institution behind the now famous "Climategate" leaks) was predicting a cooling phase back in the 70's. Funny how his successors suddenly had a change of heart…

    • I remember the 70s scare.  If I recall correctly, they wanted to spray coal-dust on the icecaps to absorb heat.  Funny how times change?

      It's the middle of summer here.  Pissing rain and quite chilly.  No sign of any glaciers forming yet though.

  2. If you wake up one morning frozen solid in ice (from the up and coming mini-ice age) please let us know so we can build up our fires?

      • Not sure about that to tell the truth. You're somewhere around the 40th parallel as I understand it and me and mine are smack-dab on the 45th. If the North Atlantic current reaches a critical desalinization point from all those melting glaciers and shuts down, you and I may all freeze together?

        • Indeed, by my calculations I am about 600 miles nearer the Pole than yourself [I'm almost on the 53rd].  Makes you think?

          • Hah. Beat you both the pole is around five hundred feet away working in the local car wash.

          • Ah, you're right. I must have been thinking upside down. I can't believe I made that mistake getting the parallels reversed like that. Ready for the scrap heap I am.

          • Fast attack subs, my friend, not missile subs. And I agree. I'd head to equator in the event of an ice age and wind up in the arctic instead. "Wrong-way Corrigan" of the  sub force.

  3. That could effect food production if it happens best hope it doesnt tbh global warming isnt a bad thing global cooling could kill millions 

    • Indeed, warming would cause some problems but cooling on a Maunder scale would be a disaster.  Not much anyone could do about it though?  Invest in companies that produce insulation and heaters?

        • But in all seriousness large scale hunger immigration to an even larger level than now and the knock on social instability would be disaster ima cross my fingers if the world does cool it wont be significant 

          • I would have thought migration would take an ironic twist – from Europe to Africa as we all try to escape the cold?
