Lobal cooling

A denialist's brain: recent scans show evidence of cooling

The Man who writes stuff like this…

Sure Glenn Beck has his faults but they are vastly outweighed by his strengths: his fearlessness in speaking truth to power; his gift for explaining political ideas in a way that galvanises the attention of Middle America; his sheer entertainment value

And this…

the values of the eugenics movement and of the modern green movement are closely connected

Brings you this:

It’s official: a new Ice Age is on its way. In what has been described as “the science story of the century”, heavyweight US solar physicists have announced that the sun is heading for a prolonged period of low activity. This makes global cooling a much more plausible prospect in the next few decades than global warming.

Sadly one of the heavyweight US solar physicists (only heavyweight when they’re telling you what you want to hear, it seems) has had to issue a follow-up statement [see bottom of page]:

We are NOT predicting a mini-ice age. We are predicting the behavior of the solar cycle. In my opinion, it is a huge leap from that to an abrupt global cooling, since the connections between solar activity and climate are still very poorly understood. My understanding is that current calculations suggest only a 0.3 degree C decrease from a Maunder-like minimum, too small for an ice age. It is unfortunate that the global warming/cooling studies have become so politically polarizing.

Delingpole is one of the ringleaders of the denialist movement and when any of his claims about climate science is examined it leads to a similar misinterpretation/incontrovertible lie. But good on them for winning the propaganda war.
