Dr. Richard Gierak: Global warming not caused by humans

If the Maldives are sinking then who'd want to buy a resort there?

This is an interesting take on why global warming and cooling are a natural process via an article by the same title in the Siskiyou Daily. More evidence of CO2 Insanity running amok with regards to global warming.

Global warming advocates have attempted to blame rising planetary temperatures on human activity. The following will demonstrate that we are looking at a natural planetary cycle where carbon dioxide is rising in the atmosphere due to ocean warming, volcanic activity and earthquake data, which all correlate with each other.

You can read the whole article at the source below. However there is one comment I find of particular interest about sea-levels, especially since we’re subjected to almost daily rants due to the Cancun Climate Conference about all these disappearing islands like the Maldives.

It has been touted that the oceans are rising to new heights based on melting of glaciers; however, the following press release from NASA is of interest:

PASADENA, Calif. (UPI) – (Sept. 2010) NASA says new images from its Jason-2 oceanography satellite shows the tropical Pacific has switched from El Niño warm conditions to La Niña cool conditions.

“The central equatorial Pacific Ocean could stay colder than normal into summer and beyond,” said oceanographer and climatologist Bill Patzert at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. “That’s because sea level is already about 4 inches below normal, creating a significant deficit of the heat stored in the upper ocean. The next few months will reveal if the current cooling trend will eventually evolve into a long-lasting La Niña situation.”

Patzert said a La Niña is essentially the opposite of an El Niño and is associated with less atmospheric moisture, resulting in less rain along the coasts of North and South America. La Niñas also tend to increase the number of tropical storms in the Atlantic.

So in less than a year the Pacific has gone from El Nino warm to La Nina cool and the sea-level of the Pacific Ocean has dropped 4 inches. A trend that will probably continue as the ocean cools due to the La Nina condition.

So, we appear to have more information that leads to the conclusion that the Maldives won’t be sinking any time soon. I guess that’s why they’re trying to promote buying resorts there. If they were really sinking who’d want to make an investment like that besides Captain Nemo? Furthermore, if they’re sinking, then why the hell are they spending $78 million to expand their airport? Hmmmmm? I have to question if global warming isn’t just a good excuse for them to get free billions from the UN, most of which probably come from the US.

Super La Niña

Get your long underwear and down jacket out, make sure your heater works and make sure you have plenty of money for gas, electricity or fuel oil as it’s going to be a cold winter.

Per the Pajamas Media article titled “Super La Niña and the Coming Winter” by Art Horn, you may need all of that and more this coming winter.

Historically, these strong La Niña events drop the Earth’s average temperature around one degree Fahrenheit, and the drop comes quickly. As a result, some of the same places that had record heat this summer may suffer through record cold this winter.

La Niña is the lesser-known colder sister of El Niño. La Niña chills the waters of the tropical Pacific Ocean, and in turn cools the entire planet for one to two years or more. This chilling has the potential to bring bone-numbing cold to many parts of the world for this and the following winter. As a result, world energy demand may spike in the next one to two years as much colder weather hits many of the major industrial nations.

This La Niña appears to be special, at least so far. It is well on its way to being the strongest of these events since the super La Niña of 1955-1956. During that powerful La Nina that lasted two years, the global average temperature fell nearly one degree Fahrenheit from 1953 to 1956.
