A SHOCKER! – Installment 8 Global Warming/Climate Change
A SHOCKER! – Installment 8 – May 27, 2008 Re-Post
“Not every scientist is part of Al Gore’s mythical consensus. Scientists worried about a new ice age seek funding to better observe something bigger than your SUV – THE SUN!” http://www.ibdeditorials.com/IBDArticles.aspx?id=287279412587175, Investor’s Business Daily, Editorial, February 7, 2008
The Danish Meteorological Institute released a study, using data that covered centuries, showing that global temperatures closely tracked Solar cycles. This was in 1991 – just about the time Al Gore was beginning to get the word out that the earth was going to burn up from gas emissions produced by man. He had created a slideshow in 1988 about the atmosphere and used it to teach on the subject. It was this slideshow that was the basis for An Inconvenient (and inaccurate) Truth (falsehood).
There was convincing data then, and Canadian scientists want more funding to study global cooling NOW. The Sun impacts Earth’s climate more than anything else. Elementary schools teach kids that our seasons are the result of our closeness to or distance from the Sun. In the past, we’ve been warned of solar storms affecting us with power blackouts, satellite failures and even pipeline explosions.
Gore and the Gaia worshipers pound everyone into submission by stating that “scientists agree” and that it is” scientifically proven”. They use the words “science, scientists, evidence and proven” as incontrovertible. What they don’t say is how many scientists disagree with Gore and have science that disproves the Gore truth. Al Gaia Gore never mentions all the evidence to the contrary. The following website presents a great deal of evidence and studies that cover centuries of data proving that solar activity changes Earth’s climate in cycles. An eleven year cycle is one of the main topics discussed, and yes, by scientists with very respected credentials. It also explains the ozone layer and the holes environmentalists claim are caused by gas emissions and blame for global warming.
“The most well-documented connection between solar activity and climate change is the Maunder Minimum. This was a 40-year period when extreme cold weather prevailed in Europe. It also coincided with astronomers watching the sun and not seeing many sunspots! Astronomer Jack Eddy pointed this out in the 1970’s, and since then many other sun-climate connections have been looked for and in some cases uncovered.
The sunspot cycle and Boston Weather…. This study by Dave Henry at NOAA is based on 207 years of daily temperature data from Boston. It shows a 0.8 F drop in the average annual temperature near sunspot maximum, a 3-inch difference in the annual average precipitation near sunspot maximum, and a 7-inch increase in annual average snowfall at sunspot maximum.
The sunspot cycle and Annual Precipitation in Beijing.… This article by Juan Zhao and his colleagues at Beijing Normal University was published in the Chinese Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (2004, vol 4 pg 189) and is based on rainfall records from 1870 to 2002. Their wavelet analysis of the rainfall data identifies four periods of 11, 22, 33 and 72 years. The wavelet analysis of the sunspot data for the same period reveals periods of 11, 22, 33 and 78 years.
The sunspot cycle and Extreme Weather over Portugal…. This 2005 study by P.S. Lucio at the Center for Geophysics in Evorea was published in the Geophysical Research Abstracts (vol. 7 p. 129) and is based on cosmic ray and rainfall data from 1901-2000. A statistically significant correlation was found between rainfall and temperature extremes, and cosmic ray fluxes beginning in 1980.
The sunspot cycle and the Global Stratosphere…This study by H. van Loon and K. Labitzke at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NOAA) shows that the heights and temperatures of the lower stratosphere vary in step with the sunspot cycle. It was published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Research (1999, vol. 61 pg. 53) and is an extension of a Northern Hemisphere study that they completed in 1997. The correlation between the sunspot cycle and the zonally averaged temperatures are highest between the tropopause and the 25-km level of the ozone layer.”
The amount of UV from the sun ( specifically UV-B) changes during the sunspot cycle. At sunspot maximum, there is 0.1 % more UV-B radiation than at minimum. Scientists have detected this sunspot cycle-effect in a 2% change in ozone concentrations. For more details see ” Solar Cycle Variability, Ozone, and Climate” by Drew Shindell, David Rind, Nambeth Balachandran, Judith Lean, and Patrick Lonergan in journal Science 1999 284: 305-308.
The difference in total ozone between maximum and minimum conditions during the sunspot cycle were estimated using yearly averages of total ozone. For solar cycle 21, 1.16% and 1.26% for solar cycle 22, a larger difference of 3.8% and 4.1% were found. The corresponding variation in UV-B at 3000 Angstroms, using Beer’s law, is 4-10% with maxima occurring during the minimum of the solar cycle. E. Escher, V. Kirchoff, Y. Sahai and N. Paes Leme published in the Advances in Space Research, Volume 27, Issue 12, p. 1983-1986.
“The correlations between the total column ozone observed by TOMS and the 11-yr sunspot cycle are lowest in the equatorial region, where ozone is produced, and in the subpolar regions, where the largest amounts are found. In the annual mean the highest, statistically significant, correlations lie between the 5° and 30° parallels of latitude in either hemisphere — between the area of production and the areas of plenty. This position of the largest correlations suggests that the association between the Sun and the ozone is not a direct, radiative one, but that it is due to solar induced changes in the transport of ozone, that is, to changes in the atmospheric circulation. The highest tropical-subtropical correlations move with the Sun from summer hemisphere to summer hemisphere. The subtropical geopotential heights in the ozone layer are higher in the peaks than in the valleys of the 11-yr sunspot cycle. It is probable that the higher subtropical geopotentials in solar maxima depress the poleward transport of ozone through the subtropics and therefore create an abundance of ozone in the tropics relative to the solar minima. These results are based on a 15-yr series of ozone observations and may thus not necessarily be representative of a longer period. “ K. Labitzke and H. van Loon published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics V. 59, p. 9-19, 1997
Cosmic rays stream down into Earth’s atmosphere from the sun and elsewhere beyond the solar system. Recent studies show that these particles penetrate into the troposphere and alter the way that droplets condense to form clouds, rain and snow with important weather and climate consequences. Changes in the sun’s ultraviolet light affects the ozone layer and the energy input into the upper atmosphere. As the upper atmosphere is heated, it expands into space causing increased friction for satellites.
There is enough opposing science to bring Gore’s hypothesis into question. It is far too soon in this debate to pass laws changing a free people’s way of life and bringing down the economies of developing nations, not to mention our own here in America.
There is no more time to do nothing.
