Study Predicts Decades Of Global Cooling Ahead

A new study out of the United Kingdom predicts the Earth is about to go through a major climatic shift that could mean decades of cooler temperatures and fewer hurricanes hitting the United States.

Scientists at the University of Southampton predict that a cooling of the Atlantic Ocean could cool global temperatures a half a degree Celsius and may offer a “brief respite from the persistent rise of global temperatures,” according to their study.
This cooling phase in the Atlantic will influence “temperature, rainfall, drought and even the frequency of hurricanes in many regions of the world,” says Dr. Gerard McCarthy. The study’s authors based their results on ocean sensor arrays and 100 years of sea-level data.

“Sea-surface temperatures in the Atlantic vary between warm and cold over time-scales of many decades,” said McCarthy, the study’s lead author. “This decadal variability, called the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation (AMO), is a notable feature of the Atlantic Ocean and the climate of the regions it influences.”

    Global cooling ahead. Global warming is a scam.

      That’s why they changed from the ‘Global Warming’ meme to the meaningless ‘Climate Change’ and they hoped we wouldn’t notice.

  • Cris Cassity

    This is why the UN socialists are so hysterical this year after 35 years of false predictions.

  • Rich

    What? Obbaaamaaa said that climate change was the greatest threat we face.

    • Pino Chardonay

      Global cooling is actually climate change and it too is a threat to the welfare of a great many species on the planet. In the words of John Wayne,”Life is hard and it is a whole lot harder when you stupid”.

      • Moa

        Yes, but man-made CO2 does NOT produce global cooling. But you cannot tax natural cooling (but oh how the unelected UN IPCC will try and try !)

        • Pino Chardonay

          You must be from the future and have advanced knowledge beyond the rest of the scientific community to make such a sweeping comment. Global weather changes will undoubtedly bring economic difficulties as well as threats to human, animal and plant life. Are you so naive that you do not see that as a threat to life as we know it . Perhaps if you cared less about taxes and more about the struggle to the generations to come you might see that if we can do anything we should.

          • Moa

            What generations to come? when energy becomes expensive then medicine and food and transport become expensive and hundreds of millions die. Already tens of thousands of elderly in Europe are being killed as they cannot afford to heat their homes with the three-times-as-expensive ‘Green’ energy.

            Energy Poverty kills. It is even worse that it is all based on lies

            Your comment is reductive. also in the future does then and than mean the same thing?

          • Michelle Frazer-Jones

            Yikes. You should read that over again. The misuse of then and than is pretty terrible. But calling out misuse when it hasn’t been misused is at least as bad.

            (Here is the sentence properly punctuated : … When energy becomes expensive, then medicine, food and transport become expensive..)
            So apparently it is your imagined future that doesn’t know how to use then/than.

      Actually…on that point I agree with Obama. With global cooling we could see major crop failures and famine. As what the world has experienced countless times in history, when the climate cools and crops start to fail, people (and armies) start to move…and that can’t be good :-).
