New Jason Satellite Indicates 23-Year Global Cooling

Dennis AveryBy Dennis Avery 

Now it’s not just the sunspots that predict a 23-year global cooling. The new Jason oceanographic satellite shows that 2007 was a “cool” La Nina year—but Jason also says something more important is at work: The much larger and more persistent Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) has turned into its cool phase, telling us to expect moderately lower global temperatures until 2030 or so. 

For the past century at least, global temperatures have tended to mirror the 20-to 30-year warmings and coolings of the north-central Pacific Ocean. We don’t know just why, but the pattern of the last century is clear: the earth warmed from about 1915 to1940, while the PDO was also warming (1925 to 46). The earth cooled from 1940 to 1975, while the PDO was cooling (1946 to 1977). The strong global warming from 1976 to 1998 was accompanied by a strong and almost-constant warming of the north-central Pacific. Ancient tree rings in Baja California and Mexico show there have been 11 such PDO shifts since 1650, averaging 23 years on length.

    Dude, if the planet does start to cool down, believe me just about EVERYONE will be happy, I’m sure. So why not wait until that happens to gloat about being right, eh? In the meantime, if that doesn’t happen, why not be prepared and start to countermeasure that? Why, oh why, not? Perhaps because you are paranoid about a vast-global conspriacy?? Yawn…

    Um, because global climate change mitigation causes real harm now to prevent imagined harm in the future.

    Real harm? That’s either paranoia, ignorance, or propaganda. What harm for cying out loud? To the economy? Prove it. You can’t, really but even if you could- do you really sacrifice the environment, upon which EVERYTHING is made possible or impossible, to the sacred “economy”? Hogwash, pure hogwash. Captialism has become a psuedo-religion in this country and that is very scary indeed. Sorry Dan but there is no real harm by shifting over to green prodcuts. It is simply your imagination and/or dictated to you by the powers that be. Either way you are a tool.
