How Freezing Temperatures are Starting to Shatter Climate Change Theory
By Daily Mail Reporter
In the freezing foothills of Montana, a distinctly bitter blast of revolution hangs in the air.
And while the residents of the icy city of Missoula can stave off the -10C chill with thermals and fires, there may be no easy remedy for the wintry snap’s repercussions.
The temperature has shattered a 36-year record. Further into the heartlands of America, the city of Billings registered -12C on Sunday, breaking the 1959 barrier of -5C.
Closer to home, Austria is today seeing its earliest snowfall in history with 30 to 40 centimetres already predicted in the mountains.
Such dramatic falls in temperatures provide superficial evidence for those who doubt that the world is threatened by climate change.
But most pertinent of all, of course, are the growing volume of statistics.
According to the National Climatic Data Centre, Earth’s hottest recorded year was 1998.
If you put the same question to NASA, scientists will say it was 1934, followed by 1998. The next three runner-ups are 1921, 2006 and 1931.
Which all blows a rather large hole in the argument that the earth is hurtling towards an inescapable heat death prompted by man’s abuse of the environment.Â
Indeed, some experts believe we should forget global warming and turn our attention to an entirely differently phenomenon – global cooling.
The evidence for both remains inconclusive, which is unlikely to help the legions of world leaders meeting in Copenhagen in December to negotiate a new climate change deal.

GCS Editor’s Note: I met Lord Christopher Monckton yesterday, and he mentioned that he’d prodded BBC reporters about when they were going to report on new data that conlusively shows the Earth has been cooling.Â At that point, the only UK reporting he was aware of was on the BBC website. It seems that word is starting to spread.
Minnesota Majority / GlobalClimateScam.com will be at the Climate Chains / Lord Monckton event at Bethel tonight. Hope to see you all there!
Please visit the above website to find information on the movie “Not Evil, Just Wrong”. Please attend the movie to find out how the global warming myth perpetuated by Al Gore is debunked. The movie is Sunday October 18, 2009 at the Machine Shed Restaurant in Oakdale, MN.
I might just go to see it there. I do have one disagreement with the title of this movie however. I don’t think that they are not evil, just wrong. I think they’re not just wrong, they’re evil.
The website for the movie “Not Evil, Just Wrong” is http://www.minnesotasd56.com.
More signs that Climate change is natural.

Forget what happened to global warming. what happened to the web page? I actually like this better because the old colors made me see stripes for a while after viewing it. The reply button and collapsing the messages is nifty neeto keen too. Nice update Dan!
The #1 complaint about GCS was the color scheme. A lot of people have trouble reading white text on black. I thouht it looked good and had no issues reading it, but the people have spoken! Glad you like the change. More design changes are on the way.

I can now read without my bi-focals on. Thanks!
Good site. Picked it up from the end of the 4 min cut of the Brits talk. Take a look at the ND geological site some time. Tells about the area being semi-tropical at one time. Then of course the glaciers came & left the farm land. I’ve often wanted to ask Algore about that, but of course, their heads are made up & he won’t debate/answer questions. Hard to believe we have so many Kool Aid drinkers left, but I’ll just say, Senator Franken!!
Ken, it is extremely perplexing that Gore and his minions would not answer the question. The real question is WHY? Are they afraid of the consequences? I sincerely believe so.
“While an ice sheet on Antarctica began to grow some 20 million years ago, the current ice age, the Quaternary glaciation, started about 2.58 million years ago. During the late Pliocene the spread of ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere began. Since then, the world has seen cycles of glaciation with ice sheets advancing and retreating on 40,000- and 100,000-year time scales called glacials (glacial advance) and interglacials (glacial retreat). The earth is currently in an interglacial, and the last glacial period ended about 10,000 years ago. All that remains of the continental ice sheets are the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.” (source Wikipeda)
There have been numerous ice ages in the earths’ history and those proponants of global warming are so arrogant as to believe that the present change in global temperatures is a direct result of human activity. Cap and trade is no more than a pandering to fear generated by environmental extremists who view humanity as a blight upon the planet. My only solace is the knowledge that both they and I will have long departed before the next ice age returns.
Must read: State of Fear by Michael Crichton, he has much greater credibility and credentials than Al Gore and the Global Warming Cult.
Anyone who has driven through the Rocky Mountains and other high-altitude Western areas in recent months has seen the work of the mountain pine beetle. Pine trees that once spread gloriously over millions of acres are now either dead or dying.
The beetle, not much bigger than a bedbug, is native to the West and has always been known as a tree killer. For centuries it has killed a few diseased trees here, a patch of trees there, but never before has it caused destruction on the scale being seen today.
U.S. Forest Service scientist Jesse Logan and other forest researchers have discovered that the beetles are responding to higher average temperatures by breeding almost nonstop. They are no longer being held in balance by the lower winter temperatures that once prevailed.
The death of so many trees, which imperils the habitat of animals and threatens catastrophic forest fires, is further evidence that the planet is warming at an alarming rate. Appearing on a National Public Radio show this week, Logan said the warming is not part of a natural cycle, as many climate-change deniers insist. â€œIt is directly our actions that are taking these forests out,â€ Logan said.
Scientists around the world agree with Logan: Human activity, principally the burning of fossil fuels for energy, is responsible for rapidly accelerating warming. Worldwide consequences include the melting of polar ice and weird weather, including shorter springs and extended summers that cause droughts.
That is why Congress is nearing debate on a climate-change bill that would cap the emissions of greenhouse gases from American industries and set goals for converting to non-emitting power sources such as solar and wind. Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, trap heat in the atmosphere that would otherwise escape harmlessly into space.
It is imperative to pass this bill so more and bigger changes in energy production can start immediately. Those who deny the urgency should take a drive through the West.
Robby Boy, Have you ever been there? The rockies that is? I doubt it.
