WE are fully three years into a 20 year global cooling trend.
If we are not ready to take this theory on board in the face of the massive media blitz trumpeting the con that is global warming, then if we could just ask the question.
Where is the warming?
Here are four truths set in concrete.
1. There has been no land surface temperature rise since 1998, nor will there be.
2. There is no sea surface temperature rise.
3. There is no sea acidity rise and there never will be; this fairy story is the most indigestible load of swill ever being forced down our throats.
And 4. There is no sea level rise, it is never going to happen.
I made three predictions in the local press about this time last year to support my views; they were:
1. Floods, (on 18/8/10, printed in Riverland Weekly), 2. Mild overcast summer, (on 26/9/10 and 18/10/10 printed in SE Times, Naracoorte Herald, Border Watch and others), and 3. Diminished grain yields, printed as above.
The river did run a banker, it was a lame summer (not one fire ban) and apart from SA the rest of the country did suffer diminished grain yields, this in spite of the widespread optimism right up until harvest.
And through all of this our public servants to a man were screaming, 'warmer drier future'.
If you are not ready to buy into the global cooling argument then why didn't I see you parading your warming beliefs down the main street this winter in shorts and singlet as I did one young lass.
I had to look twice; I swear her legs were blue.
