Guest essay by Andy May The Holocene Thermal Optimum ended at different times in different parts of the world, but it had ended everywhere by 4,000 BP (BP here means the number of years before 2000) and the world began to cool. The timeline shown in Figure 1 shows the GISP2 Central Greenland ice core […]

We are quickly entering a period of deadly cold on Planet Earth. NASA’s own Sunspot Tracking page makes specific note of the similarity between today’s declining Sunspot activity and a similar event the lasted from the year 1645 to the year 1715 called the “Maunder Minimum”. This period in history is known for cold weather that made growing food difficult or impossible in Europe and North America. Disease and Famine and resulting Wars racked the planet. Theodor Landscheidt was first to correlate these times with Solar Sunspot activity and El Nino/La Nina events to accurately predict temperatures in the Northern Half of the Earth. Carl Smith and Geoff Sharp found the influence of the large planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus on the Sun. The gravity of these huge planets tug on the sun, influencing the Sunspot cycles. The Solar activity cycles control the Cosmic Rays that govern cloud cover on Earth. Henrik Svensmark demonstrated the clear Corrolation that increased Cosmic Rays increase Cloud Formation. Cloud formation releases vast amounts of Warm Water Vapor heat into space, and the tops of clouds reflect 90% of the Sun’s Heating Radiation. Water Vapor is 95% of the Earth’s Greenhouse Gasses. Together, Landscheidt, and Smith, Sharp and Svensmark predict we are entering into a mini ice age similar to the Maunder Minimum, that could last 30 years or more.
Direct Evidence for this cooling has been provided by Calibrated Satellite temperature measurements of the entire Earth, something that NASA’s thermometers on the surface cannot do. These satellite temperature measurements show a slight cooling that began in 2003, not the warming that NASA/NOAA claims from surface thermometers they adjust to make warming appear. If the Landscheidt predictions are correct, we are tipping into a period of deadly cooling, not uncomfortable warming as predicted by the IPCC International Panel on Climate Change at the United Nations. The IPCC are not scientists. They are Politicians who pay scientists. They are getting what they pay for. They are getting more predictions of Global Warming, when it is not warming.
As the real trend of cooling continues, we will need all the energy sources we can find to compensate, including renewables and non-renewables. Politics and science have teamed up in the past to predict future cold and warm periods. They have always been wrong because the scientific mechanism was not fully understood. This includes the current “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” predictions. Look back at them and see how many of their predictions have come true. NONE of them have come true. Decide then for yourself who to believe.
Now we finally have a scientific explanation for these warm and cool periods, and it does not seem to follow the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. Instead, CO2 follows the temperature changes with a delay of hundreds of years. Today’s Global Warming theory has them backwards. Al Gore conveniently shifted the long term graphs to make it look the other way. Check it. The only time in recent history when warming followed CO2 was a coincidence from 1974 to 2003. That was very convenient for Al Gore, a politician, not a scientist. Before that (1950s and 1960s), and after that (2004 to now), temperatures went down while CO2 went up. NASA/NOAA PUBLISHED Thermometer Records are wrong from 2003 to now, they are too hot. NASA/NOAA adjusted their RECENT measured temperatures upward, and adjusted their own previously published PAST measured temperatures downward, showing a warming trend. They did this, by adjusting their own raw surface measurements that are verified by the very close Satellite temperature measurements. Why do they make these adjustments when their own raw data is confirmed by the satellites? Ask them, that is what they get paid for. NASA/NOAA also went back in time to adjust the past Thermometer records to make the past cooler than today. Therefore, they continue to make claims of “The Hottest Year” each year. There are other posts here on this site from other sources that clearly show this is true, including a simple presentation to Vladimir Putin from his scientists in 2004 making it very clear. It also makes it very clear that the cost of trying to change the weather is infinite if you choose CO2 as the control knob. It does not work.
Here is a link to the Putin presentation:
The sunspots are directly correlated with temperature cycles on the Earth. NASA themselves observed that this is true in the quote below. The mechanism is not that the sun gets brighter or dimmer, but instead, the active sun blocks cosmic rays that make clouds.
The sun is in a declining cycle of activity right now, predicted by Landscheidt, Smith, and Sharp. This means Cosmic rays are free to increase cloud cover on the Earth. To see how all of this works, see another post on this site at:
We are being prepared for the opposite temperature trend than is truly happening for political and financial gain. We will know for sure in the next few years, but the signs are already here. Polar Ice caps are back to normal and growing. Greenland is not melting. The Northwest Passage is closed. Record Cold weather events are at least as frequent than Record Warm weather events.
NASA wrote: “Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the “Little Ice Age” when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.”
Here is a link to that NASA page:
NASA has since become attached to the Political Bandwagon of Global Warming supposedly caused by CO2, caused by Humans. The science for this could not be more incorrect. NASA abandoned their statement above, their understanding of the relationship between the sun’s activity and Earthly temperatures because they did not understand how it works. They observed that the sun’s brightness only varies slightly, perhaps 3%. Because of the attraction towards blaming Humans for “Climate Change”, they abandoned the clear relationship between sunspots and Earth’s Temperature. Instead, they attached themselves to the unproven theory that CO2 causes temperature changes, and they have tried to explain how the tiny amount of CO2 contributed by humans (.03% of the CO2 in the atmosphere) can make the tiny amount of CO2 itself (3% of the atmosphere) change the weather. It sounds very unlikely, doesn’t it? It is clearly a political position, not a scientific one. What more likely explanation could there be for the Earth’s temperature cycles? We must go back to NASA’s own statement above on the direct correlation between the Sunspot count and periods of deep cold or warmth on Earth.
A Meteorologist named Theodor Landscheidt (Died 2004) predicted today’s decline in Solar Activity back in 1989, and successfully predicted the weather trends that have accompanied it. His forecast is for an imminent coming period of decades where Earth’s weather will be very cold, caused by events similar to what was seen in the “Maunder Minimum” of the 1600’s. It is becoming more common to refer to today’s low Solar Activity period as the “Landscheidt Minimum”. Per Landscheidt, Smith and Sharp, we are already tipping into a dramatic cooling period that will deepen rapidly, and be very obvious in the 2020’s or before.
Here is a lin of tk to a page with Theodor Landsheidt’s papers. Note he successfully predicted recent El Nino and La Nina events.
Here is a link to a page by Geoff Sharp on the late Carl Smith’s research on the effects of the Planets tugging on the Sun. Carl’s observations, going back 6,000 years describe the empirical connection between the orbiting movement of the Planets and the Solar Activity as measured by Sunspots.
Building on Theodor Landsheidt’s work, Carl has demonstrated even greater accuracy than Landsheidt how the Sun’s activity may be explained and predicted.
Geoff Sharp has contributed, standing on the strong shoulders of Landsheidt and Smith to refine and demonstrate further the direct empirical relationship between planetary movement and the Sun’s activity, and the Earth’s climate.
What does this mean regarding the Earth’s weather in the future? If Theodor and Carl were right about the pattern of Solar activity we can expect in the near future, then Landscheidt’s prediction of a mini ice age in the first half of the 21st century will come true. There will be predictable effects on the Earth’s weather, including El Nino and La Nina ocean events and Global temperatures. We can expect dangerous, even deadly cooling in the next fifteen years with deeper cold and longer winters. The end will depend upon how fast the Sun recovers from the influences of the larger planets.
Here is a link to a blog with discussions on this subject, giving credit to Theodor Landsheidt for his accurate predictions in the past.
Follow this link to see clear evidence that CRU temperature records that are used to declare Global Warming are falsified. Prior temperature data from NASA shows we are barely warmer than the 1930’s, when European Glaciers melted rapidly. Today’s temperature data that is produced to support Global Warming claims and predictions have lowered the 1930’s and raised recent temperature data. There will be lawsuits soon to expose these fraudsters who are extorting $trillions with false data.

How in the universe do we connect weather or climate event to Human Caused CO2? Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide has been increasing for the last 7,000 years, while the Earth’s Average Temperature has been Decreasing for the last 3,000 years, according to Ice Cores.
Humans contribute less than 10% of the recent 10% rise in CO2. CO2 is only 1% of the Greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere. Water Vapor is 97% of the greenhouse gas in Earth’s Atmosphere and makes Clouds, rain, and snow with no help from CO2. Vast amounts of heat is absorbed and released as water evaporates and condenses and freezes. This is called “Changing Phases”. It is still H2O as liquid water, a gas, or a solid.
CO2 does not change phases to solid or liquid at Earthly Temperatures and Pressures. CO2 cannot store an release such vast amounts of heat energy. It therefore cannot dominate as a greenhouse gas. Global Warming Models so not attempt to model Water as liquid or ice because it is too complicated, and they admit it. It is also too powerful. So, lets just look at water as a vapor, a greenhouse gas like CO2, and compare the two.
- Note the area on the graph below labeled “Infrared” this is the Sun’s. radiation that HEATS surfaces that don’t reflect it. Note that CO2 is only connected to a narrow part of the Infrared (heating) spectrum, while Water Vapor connects across most of it. The red part of the graph is the bandwidth of the Sun’s Solar Irradiance (Brightness). The blue part of the graph is the bandwidth of stored invisible heat radiation upward from the Earth’s surface that originally came from day sunshine. The grey parts of the graph are where the various greenhouse gasses absorb and re-radiate energy. Note the “Hole” in the Water Vapor Grey area just under the Blue. This is the only big part of stored surface heat that is NOT absorbed by water vapor or consumed by evaporation of water to make water vapor. Note that CO2 does nothing to stop that blue heat energy that escapes upward from the Surface of the Earth except for the right 1/4 of that blue peak. This clearly shows that ONLY water vapor is an important greenhouse gas. CO2 is just a tiny one-hump player. This should be enough proof, but there is much much more.
CO2 is such a weak Greenhouse gas that it is insignificant regardless of the amount of Solar Radiation spectrum it interacts with. Water Vapor rules on its own as a greenhouse gas.
Water vapor is vastly more important for another reason. Water Vapor changes state to water or ice, and back from water or ice, with huge Quantum (instant) heat absorption and release. Water vapor condenses into water when it saturates the air at a given temperature. On the other hand, CO2 precipitates directly to a solid, or sublimates directly to a gas, without passing through a liquid state, and does this at MINUS 109 degrees Farenheit under normal atmospheric temperature and pressure ranges. CO2 NEVER changes state near the Earth’s surface because the Earth’s surface or atmosphere Never gets down to Minus 109 Degrees. CO2 cannot move heat energy in the most important way possible.
Water Vapor at lower altitude temperature and pressure changes state into liquid water = clouds. Clouds are a very high efficiency reflector for Solar infrared (Heating) radiant energy, shading water and land with 90% efficiency. However clouds do let non-heating ultraviolet radiation through, giving you a sunburn on a Cloudy day. Water vapor rises because it is lighter than air. When it rises up into the cold upper air, water vapor condenses into clouds, rain, and snow. When this happens, Clouds radiate huge amounts of heat into space from the condensation of water vapor to water, rain, and ice. Global Surface Temperatures decline with increased Cloudiness because of reflecting shade and the transport of heat by evaporation from the surface to form clouds that radiate heat energy into space.
This plot and graph of observed temperatures vs cloudy days around the world clearly shows that more clouds are associated with colder temperatures.
Here is the recent relationship between Cloud Cover (Green) and Earth’s Surface Temperature (Blue). It makes sense, doesn’t it? More clouds = cooling. We have all felt the effects.
Huge amounts of Solar radiant energy are needed every day to keep this negative feedback from going to cold. Compare the graph of recent Global Cloudiness below with the next graph of recent Global Temperature. Flip it over, and see if it fits the temperature graph better than the graph of CO2. There is No contest as the CO2 line does not follow measured temperatures. Meanwhile, temperatures clearly move directly opposite the cloudiness.
Does the Graph of Cloud Cover explain Global Temperature better than CO2?
Global Temperatures move opposite to Global Cloud Cover. Clouds are condensation from Water Vapor. Clouds release heat into space when they form. Water vapor gets this heat by evaporation, cooling the Earth’s surface. Clouds are 90% efficient at reflecting the sun’s heating radiation into space. CO2 is an orphan. CO2 has no significant role. Water Vapor is not controlled by CO2. Global Water Vapor has stayed almost constant recently, except it has declined at higher altitudes. (See Top line in the graph below) Higher altitudes are where CO2 Global Warming theory said Water Vapor would increase to do more Greenhouse warming because heat from CO2 put it there. That is the most basic Global Warming assumption. It is clearly not happening. Neither is the predicted warming.
It is apparent that the increased Cloud Cover does not dent the amount of Water Vapor in the atmosphere at lower altitudes (Bottom two lines). This makes sense, because the air has to be saturated with 100% humidity for clouds to form. The excess falls out as rain or snow. Humidity cannot get higher than 100%. Any added moisture in the air just drops out as clouds, rain, or snow. Clouds occur almost exclusively at lower altitudes, when the air cools and cannot hold any more water vapor. The excess becomes clouds and rain and ice. In the chart above, the amount of water vapor at lower altitudes (bottom two lines) is almost constant, increasing slowly. The Greenhouse effect of Water Vapor is therefore fairly constant now, on average. The only variable here is the amount of water vapor rising, making clouds, and falling down.
Global Surface temperatures are controlled by the extent of Cloud Cover, since the Sun’s “Irradiance” is very constant, and only varies by less than 1/4%. Clouds form when the sun heats the Earth’s surfaces, including oceans, and the water vapor generated rises to cooler altitudes to make clouds. When Cloud Cover is widespread, the Sun’s Energy is reflected back into space with up to 90% efficiency. When Cloud Cover is sparce, the land and seas can absorb the Sun’s Energy and the Earth warms. Clouds act as “Venetian Blinds” to block or allow the Sun’s Energy through to heat the land and seas. Here is a graph showing that relationship between Solar Energy being sent back into space (Red Line) and the Earth’s Global Temperature (Blue Line). They are opposites. It seems the prime driver of Global Temperatures is clearly Cloud Cover.
When Cloudiness increases, Earth’s temperature decreases. When cloudiness decreases, Earth’s temperature increases. They move oppositely.
There is now strong evidence that the Sun controls Cloud Cover indirectly by controlling the amount of Cosmic Rays that reach the Earth to make clouds.
Here is a graph of that very striking inverse (opposite) relationship of Solar Activity as measured by sunspots (Blue), and historic cosmic rays. (Red).
It has been shown experimentally in Cloud Chambers, that high energy protons and neutrons that ARE Cosmic Rays, will make cloud formation easier. The term for this is Nucleation. Periods of high sunspot. Activity make strong solar winds and magnetic fields that blow away Cosmic rays headed for Earth. So, It appears that the Sunspot cycles contribute strongly to the Earth’s global temperature cycles by this indirect method. More sunspots, less Cosmic Rays and less clouds to block the Sun from warming the Earth’s surfaces. Less Sunspots, and more Cosmic Rays get through to make clouds form easier, making shade and reflecting the Sun’s energy back into space, cooling the Earth’s surfaces. So THAT is how the Sun indirectly, but strongly, controls the Earth’s Global Temperature, not by changing the strength of sunlight. The Global warming models have NO accounting for this indirect control of clouds by the Sun, but simply say the intensity of sunshine (irradiance) is almost constant.
Here is how the sun’s control of clouds works according to one of the discoverers, Professor Henrik Svensmark.
There is other strong evidence that the Sun’s Activity, as evidenced by Sunspots, controls the Earth’s Global Temperature. During two periods in the last 400 years the sun’s activity went down for several 11-year cycles in a row, resulting in periods of deadly cold for the Earth and Humans. The “Maunder Minimum” lasted for about 60 years with almost no sunspots, a time known as the “Little Ice Age”. Another dip in the Sun’s activity occurred about 200 years ago, known as the “Dalton Minimum”. Although not as long or deep, it, too resulted in thousands of people dying of freezing cold or starvation from not being able to grow crops because of very long winters. One year of low solar activity had no summer at all. American Indians recall a year of snow on the ground in Florida.
It works in reverse, too. In recent times, we have had high numbers of Sunspots, and that has resulted in the “Modern Maximum”, where winters are reasonably short and summers long enough to grow food, with some uncomfortably warm periods in the 1890’s and 1930’s, much warmer than today. Note: The hot 1930’s are being denied and covered up by official record keepers (see my blog with detailed graphs). Worldwide Temperature records have been manipulated to lower the temperatures shown in the first half of the 1900s and to raise the temperatures shown since then up to today to make recent times to appear warmer. See detailed graphs in the Paullitely.com Blog entry beginning with HadCRUT.
Here below is a graph of the Solar Activity sunspot cycles going back 400 years. See the notations for the deadly little ice ages and the recent Modern Maximum warm period where we have thrived.
Although we do not have sunspot records back that far, it is important to see that ice cores show the Earth’s surface temperatures were much much warmer than today for years about 1100 to 1300 AD. This was the time of enlightenment and Renaissance, when food was plenty and cold weather did not kill in Europe. see chart below. Of course, humans did not contribute much CO2 back then, so human made CO2 could not have caused it.
See the colored chart below of recent Sunspot measurements. The Last two Sunspot cycles through today are numbered #23 and #24. They have peaks that are lower than the peak before by 30% each time. The current Sunspot peak #24 is delayed, and has a “Double Hump”. This same formation happened at the beginning of the long cold Maunder Minimum with almost no sunspots that lasted for 60 years of very cold temperatures on Earth. There is a strong possibility we are headed there again right now, to a new mini-iceage, as predicted in 1989 by Theodor Landscheidt. If so, we are not looking at a “Globalwarming” future, but instead, an extended “Globalcooling” period that will be deadly, as it was each of the last times the sun got stuck at low sunspot activity.
Look closely at at this graph of the declining Sunspot cycles we are in. This pattern was seen going into the Maunder Minimum, and the next major peak took 60 years to appear, and we froze. We don’t know that will happen, but it is likely the next peak could be lower than this one we are in – Cycle 24.
We are now at the right hand edge of the roller coaster ride, headed for the bottom again. We don’t know if there is a Cycle #25 hump coming, or how big it may be. What we do know is that these low solar activity cycles come around about every 200 years as the Sun’s magnetic poles get “Stuck” in neutral or lock on to each other when trying to switch places. This is happening now, right on time, according to Theodor Landscheidt, and the Sun has not finished flipping poles as of 2016. In 5 years, it could get stuck trying to flip. It surely looks to many, many of us like deadly cold weather is ahead for some time, as in the past mini ice ages. Evidence of Global Cooling is all around us.
Before you dismiss the following facts, read the other posts on this site regarding how ALL claims of Global Warming are based on Temperature Records that have been changed to MAKE warming while the raw measurements show cooling. Polar ice is nearly back to normal in 2016. Antarctic ice is the highest in 35 years. Greenland did not seen a summer in 2015 and has added ice over 85% of its surface. Sidney Australia had its first snow since 1835 in this year, 2015.
The last few years have brought more and more polar ice, Colder and longer Winters, and Record low temperatures, even in the Summer. The Modern Little Ice Age may last for 20 years or it may go on for 60 years as it did in the 1600’s. Each new Solar Cycle from high to low takes 11 years from the last one. We will see continued cooling at least that long from now. The cold caused by lower and lower peaks at Sunspot Cycle #23 and #24 are still unfolding. it can take 11 years for the Earth to change temperature direction and follow the sun This current period of low Solar Activity is called the Landscheidt Grand Minimum, for Theodor Landscheidt, who predicted it back in 1989. He accurately predicted global weather from the Sun’s declining activity and ocean currents. Here is an article on that by Landscheidt himself:
The long ice ages can also be explained. What is worrying some scientists, and me, is what if the amount of Cosmic Rays heading for Earth increase so they are very very intense – too much for the Sun to block? The Sun’s solar winds and magnetic fields can only divert just so much of the incoming cosmic rays. Very intense cosmic ray exposure may overcome the Sun’s protection completely. It appears that this is what happens to make the deep 100,000 Year ice ages that have occurred on Earth. Here is a graph of the history going back 420,000 Years. Note the long deep ice ages, and the short warm peaks. We are right now just a speck on the right side of the red box on a warm peak now, ready to fall back down into a deep ice age, as before.
Here is a magnification of that red box, showing that we are at the end of it. Temperatures have been declining for the last 3000 years. If we fall off that cliff, the little ice ages we are discussing here will be insignificant. Sheer survival of species, including humans, will be at great risk. The cost of simply keeping warm and finding/making food will be staggering, and societies will be shredded. The 125,000 year Mayan Calendar has just reset.
An explanation for the great ice ages seems to be as follows, based on astronomy observations. The solar system “Bobs” up and down through the plane of our Galaxy, the “Milky Way”. Right now, we are in the plane of the disc. Because we cannot see very far through the thick middle layer, we are protected from most of the Cosmic rays coming from the other stars in the Milky Way and the supermassive black hole at its center. Our exposure is blocked by nearby stars and gas clouds. This protection only lasts for about 13,000 years, Then the Solar System moves out to clear space where cosmic rays from most of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond can reach us unobstructed.
We seem to be moving out of safety and into the dense stream of cosmic rays that are so strong that our Sun cannot block them. As that happens, the Earth will rapidly cloud over and cool, making the next Ice Age. Ice Ages last about 100,000 years. This effect compounds the Sun’s current inactivity. The little ice age we may be entering may just tip over right into the next grand ice age for 100,000 years. As a result, we may see a very, very rapid descent into dense cloud cover and even more intense, deadly cold. The Landsheidt Minimum little ice age we are in now will most likely reach the coldest by 2025, and it could stay there for decades as it did in the Maunder Minimum. OR, the sun may come unstuck from it’s state of no magnetic poles and help us warm up first. Either way, we are already on the way down the roller coaster ramp for a period of significant cooling.
There is a delay of the effect of the sun’s cycles and the Earth’s cooling of approximately one solar cycle. Heating took time. Cooling takes time. Two lower and lower solar cycles have just occurred. We have not seen the full effects of the past two lower solar cycles. We will not see the full effects for another 11 to 20 years. Even a strong recovery of the Sun, after it finishes flipping North and South magnetic poles, may shield us for a while longer, but it seems it will eventually be overpowered by intense cosmic rays.
Here is an artists representation of the “Bobbing” of the Earth and Solar System through the plane of the Milky Way. It takes approximately 25,000 years to pass through the central disk of the Milky Way, then about 100,000 years to return. The 25,000 years corresponds to the length of the Mayan Calendar, that coincidentally just ended, along with the current warm period on Earth. During that passage, the Disk of the Milky Way itself shields us from the most intense cosmic rays, and the Sun can deflect them when the Sun is Active with Sunspots. During the next approximate 100,000 years, the solar system is outside the central disk of the Milky Way, and is exposed to intense Cosmic Rays from the Ultra-Massive Black Hole at the center of the Milky Way, as well as the entire plane of other active radiant objects. During this time, the Sun is not powerful enough to deflect this intense bombardment of Earth, and Earth clouds over into a Major Ice Age until the Solar System returns to the protection of the central Disk of the Milky Way.
There is a video on YouTube that goes with this image. It is accompanied by dire warnings of the social consequences, and correlations with the Mayan Calendar.
Tipping into the next Major Ice Age will not be abrupt because it takes thousands of years. However, tipping into the Landscheidt Mini Ice Age, as we are today, will be very abrupt if the Maunder Minimum is being repeated as Landscheidt, and Carl Smith and Geoff Sharp predicted. The Maunder Minimum descended in a matter of a few decades with a pattern of declining Sunspot activity that is being ecoed today.
It is deadly cold we should be preparing for, not a future of Global Warming and uncomfortable warmth. The evidence will be mounting undeniably in the next few years. The “Maunder Minimum” from 1645 to 1715 was accompanied by wars, starvation, plagues and persecution by extremists who believed our God had been offended, so he made it deadly cold. European Rivers froze over annually, including the Thames in England. Snow stuck to the ground for most of the year. The sun was obscured by clouds for long periods. It is known as “The Dark Ages” because it was dark. We may be WISHING FOR WARMING as happened in the years 1100 to 1300, whose benefit was the ability to grow food further towards the Earth’s Poles. The Earth was as much as two degrees warmer than now. There were Vineyards in England. The street signs remain today celebrating them. Food was abundant, and disease was less prevalent. Wars were infrequent. Live was easier. It is known as the “Medieval Warm Period”, and “The Age of Enlightenment”. Warmth is good. Cold is deadly.
In the meantime, the Atmosphere is getting richer in CO2, and that is plant food. Canadians direct the exhaust from their propane heaters into their greenhouses to increase the CO2 and double plant growth during their short Summers. Ironically, today’s rising CO2 levels have increased forest growth on Earth. More CO2 can make it easier to grow food during the upcoming deadly cold with very short summers. CO2 is not a poison, or we would not put it into our soft drinks and carbonated water and greenhouses.
Official Global Warming model temperatures closely follow the amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. It is a straight line for most of the last 1500 years. How does it line up with Earths actual temperatures over the last 1500 years?
Click to enlarge the graph. Blue Is the IPCC model that uses CO2 to graph temperature changes.. Red are actual temperature changes from ice core sample measurements and recent Satellite measurements. The Models have ironed out natural temperature changes in favor of showing a nearly straight history with a recent upturn. Why? What do you believe?
High levels of CO2 have to be very high to be dangerous to humans. Submarines and the International. Space station keep CO2 levels as high as 4,000 parts par million, or 10 times our 400 ppm atmospheric CO2 today. Our breath can be 10 times higher, at 40,000 ppm when we exhale. CO2 is not the Devil. It is a green plant’s best friend along with water and sunlight.
The grand experiment of looking for proof of Global Warming predictions in nature has failed so miserably that the promoters of the story have to alter raw historic records and MAKE warming to keep fundraising and salaries and grants totaling about $1Billion per day worldwide. Aside from encouraging solar and wind power at great expense with government subsidies, We get NOTHING for it. We get inconveniences and more expensive basics.. Food, energy, and shelter, so the poorest suffer the most. Promoters of Global Warming theory refuse to continue to refer to their position as what it is: CO2 Globalwarming. That is their basic claim. They have abandoned it because it is not happening except by their adjustments to raw temperature data. Supporters of the Global Warming models (NOAA, USHCN) have even adjusted historic published temperature data down in the past and up in recent times to track with the increase in atmospheric Carbon Dioxide.
Soon, we will have to Avoid using the term ClimateChange, because we now need that term for the inescapable little ice age we have entered. We really could use some Globalwarming after all, but I would not not count on it, from what I can see.
Environmentalism is a wonderful thing, and I am an avid environmentalist. That is why I have studied this Global Warming subject for six years. Wasteful fundraising to make or stop the weather is not a good thing. It is literally impossible for humans to change the weather, but $1billion per day pays those who say they can. Imagine what we could do to make life better for our fellow humans, animals, plants and our lovely planet with that money. Instead, it is being wasted where it makes no positive difference. Watch for the next United Nations IPCC fundraiser and their outrageous forecasts that have not come true. There has been no global warming for 18 years, and we did not stop it. It just did not happen as they predicted. Instead of excuses, we need a revised model, or what are they being paid for? We should at least be using some of that money to prepare for what is really coming… deadly cold. The survival of millions of people will depend upon it. Reality is pressing ahead.
A significant hurdle confronting negotiators trying to develop a strong climate agreement in Paris in December comes from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has said “there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries including Russia,” as described by Stanislav Belkovsky, a Russian political analyst.
Russia’s pledged carbon dioxide reductions ahead of the Paris talks reflect Putin’s skepticism. They actually amount to an increase in emissions. Russia has said its emissions will be “70 to 75 percent” of 1990 levels by 2030 – which amounts to an increase in emissions from 2012 levels since Russian emissions are currently far below the levels produced in the Soviet era.
Putin’s skepticism dates from the early 2000s, when, according to Andrey Illarionov, Putin’s senior economic advisor at the time, his staff “did very, very extensive work trying to understand all sides of the climate debate. We found that, while climate change does exist, it is cyclical, and the anthropogenic role is very limited. It became clear that the climate is a complicated system and that, so far, the evidence presented for the need to ‘fight’ global warming was rather unfounded.”
In the Beginning, was the seminal meeting in Kyoto to pressure the industrialized nations of the world to do something about Human Caused Global Warming due to burning fossil fuels, as theorized by the IPCC. The theory had not yet been proven by the test of time, but had been politicized by Al Gore’s Book and Film “Inconvenient Truth” The resultant social and political environment urged industrialized nations to take dramatic action because, IF the IPCC was right, immediate action was required to prevent a climate apocalypse, or it would be impossible to stop later.
But what did non-politicized scientists and economists see when examining the facts? Be sure to see ALL of the charts and graphs in this Russian presentation and then make up your own mind as if you were Putin:
Note: This online links to the Powerpoint presentation have been blocked off and on as of August 1, 2016. If it doesn’t work, try again later. I was able to find the title page of the presentation, shown here. The presentation is so clear and definite showing that Humans cannot change the weather using CO2, and that the social and economic damages from trying to do the impossible are, of course, extreme without end.
Here is a link to the Guardian Article of May 19, 2004 with a summary. Below the link is the text of the article it links to:
“Leading Russian scientists told President Vladimir Putin yesterday that the Kyoto emissions treaty discriminates against Russia, would damage its economy and would not significantly reduce global warming, increasing the chance that the Kremlin will refuse to ratify the agreement.
Experts from the Russian Academy of Sciences submitted a report to the Kremlin containing their long-awaited assessment of the scientific virtues of the pact for Russia. The document, according to the Interfax news agency, said: “Its effectiveness in reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in line with the framework convention on the climate change is low.”
The scientists added that global warming was occurring, but that to conclude that “the warming is occurring exclusively due to anthropogenic pollutants, namely, manmade emissions” was questionable.
They said the total benefit to Russia would be a small drop in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air over the next 10 years, but the total cost of the pact’s emission-reduction measures would be “tens of trillions of dollars over a hundred years”.
The report said: “If Russia ratifies the Kyoto protocol, it would have to either reduce its economic growth or buy additional quotas on greenhouse emissions.” The scientists added that Russia’s extreme climate was not taken into account by the protocol.
The report, signed by a fierce Kyoto critic, Yuri Israel, will give Mr Putin the scientific justification he needs to kill off the treaty.
To come into effect, the 1997 protocol must be ratified by at least 55 countries which accounted for 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 1990. After the US and other key states rejected the pact, Russia’s ratification became key for it to come into effect.
Mr Putin has procrastinated over the decision for months, saying he will not sign anything while it remains against Russia’s national interests, yet apparently holding out for last minute concessions from the EU.
His key adviser, Andrei Illarionov, has repeatedly panned the treaty, saying it would amount to an “economic Auschwitz” for growth in Russia, where the Kremlin has ambitiously pledged to double GDP in 10 years.
On Friday, a Russia-EU summit in Moscow will see increased pressure for Russia to sign. Yet Mr Putin is thought to be torn between rejecting the treaty, which could ease Moscow’s frayed relations with Washington and remove perceived constraints on economic growth, and ratifying it, which would improve its standing with the EU, its new, expanding neighbour.
The US is responsible for 24% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, while Russia accounts for 17.4%. Moscow in any case faces a daunting task in meeting treaty requirements, given its legacy of polluting Soviet industries.
The EU, Japan and the rest of the developed world adopted the agreement more than three years ago.”
Annual “COP” fundraisers have put political and social pressure on world governments to continue with these agreements. These United Nations fundraisers and their extortion funds THEM, and also gets commitments for internal spending that keeps lots of Scientists and Politicians employed. “Green Energy” projects are subsidized regardless of economic damage to the economy of nations and the consequential higher cost of living for those least able to afford it as their energy bills leap up. All of this is allowed to continue, as long as nobody challenges the basic assumption that humans and CO2 control the Earth’s Climate despite ample extensive evidence that it does not.
Putin and RUSSIA have been laughing at us since then. So has CHINA and INDIA, because they all saw the same information from their own Scientists and Economists. However, Political, Social, and Economic extortion by the United Nations IPCC and the United States anti Fossil Fuel movement, has kept them in line… but not for long… as the real climate will “Trump” “Politicized Science”. Of course, nobody will pay for these transgressions, and that is why they can do it.
We in the United States, and in Russia, and China and India and Europe, and in Australia, did not do independent analysis of the core theory of Human Caused CO2 Global Warming Climate Change… or did we? The Emperor will soon be exposed as having no clothes, but surely he will not be embarassed. Instead, he will claim, as usual, that “He knows better than we do what is good for us” despite the damage done. Who is “He”? look to the United Nations, who created the IPCC, and conspired with the Politicized Scientists they employed, to grab centralized political, social, and economic power worldwide. There is a touch of evil there. Beware, they will not give up their agenda.
Burt Rutan Presents his findings on the Real Climate Change Data
Video on Youtube
It is not surprising that Burt Rutan, Aerospace Engineer, would be interested in the weather. His aircraft have travelled nonstop around the world, and now into space. Weather can make or break the flights of his innovative aircraft.
Burt Rutan has assembled data on the Earth’s Weather history and how Weather, including temperatures have been measured. It is amazing to see what we do know about the Earth’s history. Never before has all this information been presented in one place. There are many revelations that come from looking at it all at once from the point of view of the possibility of Humans causing Global Warming, and how Dangerous it may be.
Do not miss this video to understand the facts so you can decide for yourself what the future holds.

1. Global temperatures only went up with CO2 from 1973 to 2003. Before and after this 30 year stretch, temperatures went down while CO2 marched upward. See the other posts here at paullitely.com for ducumentary proof.
2. Predictions of global warming disasters by the years 1995, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010. 2011, 2013 , and 2015 didn’t happen, and average trends are actually reversing to cooling.
The Human caused global warming promoters have kept the public’s eyes off these two basic tests by rapid and energetic Arm-Waving, intricate descriptions of their “Models”, and new predictions of an even more disastrous time for 8 Decades in the future. They are very clever in preserving their income and political futures. They are Very clever in fostering a movement based on desirable goals, ie. Preserving the environment and reducing pollution. For many people who cannot or will not explore all sides of the science issue, they don’t care if the science is wrong as long as actions further those goals at any cost.
Oh, they also get personal with attacks on the motives, intelligence, sincerity, morals, and affiliations of anybody who dares point out their failures or simply disagree. Yes, the refuge of insecurity about facts is personal attacks. Anything to distract from failures and inconsistencies in the Global Warming, Ice melting, Sea Level Raising, Polar Bear Killing, Hurricane Making predictions that have not happened.
Not surprisingly, Global Warming is 14th out of people’s top 15 Concerns in Polls. The louder the ACO2GW Promoters yell, the more desperate they look. They are desperate because each of their Fundraisers – Kyoto, Copenhagen, CanCun, And Lima has brought in less and less financial support and more skepticism based on real climate measurements that they have to deny with creative stories.
The upcoming Paris Fundraiser looks to be their last chance before the real weather 12 years of no warming, no sea level rise, no increased hurricane activity, no increased rate of glacier melting, and the return of Arctic Ice to normal average makes it undeniable that global temperatures do not follow CO2, no matter where it comes from.
In preparation for this Paris fundraiser, as for the last two fundraisers, the temperature records kept by NOAA, NASA, and US NCDC have been altered again to cool the longer term past and to warm the recent past and warm the present. All this despite using what they claim is state of the art measuring equipment installed by 2008 they said would need no adjustments.
Meanwhile, RSS Satellite Measurements that cannot be adjusted more than 0.03% have shown a decline in average Global Temperatures since 2003. This satellite result is consistent with competing well supported Climate models that predict we are entering a mini ice age.
Keep watching the weather.
Look for more in the news about the desperateness of the Global Warming Promoters. And new ways to raise funds with Carbon credit banks. Only the issuers of Carbon Credits make money – by printing carbon credits to sell.
Look for more in the news about how Global Warming predictions are getting farther and farther from the real weather. Look for more about the competing models that are willing to bear scrutiny, saying we should be preparing for 30 years of deadly cold.
If these scientists are right, a cloudy Earth will make growing crops and staying warm difficult. We will have wasted at least 10 years preparing for the opposite weather, and we will need ALL energy sources to survive. Solar panels will not work so well with the added clouds. The mechanical parts of windmills are wearing out faster than expected. New, huge Fossil Fuel deposits are constantly being discovered… this is fortunate, because we will not be able to avoid using them to deal with the upcoming very cold future. that has already begun.
