Svensmark: “global warming stopped and a cooling is beginning” – “enjoy global warming while it lasts”Posted: October 6, 2015
The UN, IPCC and 97% of all global warming alarmist scientists and politicians, believe that the sun plays *no* role, at all, in ‘climate change’.
They believe colourless, odourless, plant food ‘CO2’ is the ultimate “climate control knob”.
But I would have you believe that too if I wanted to control the use of your cheap, reliable and efficient carbon based energy supply, of which, the number one byproduct is of course ….. CO2.

“In fact global warming has stopped and a cooling is beginning. No climate model has predicted a cooling of the Earth – quite the contrary. And this means that the projections of future climate are unreliable,” writes Henrik Svensmark.
The star that keeps us alive has, over the last few years, been almost free of sunspots, which are…

THE HEAT WAVE.
A TERRIBLE WEEK.
MELBOURNE, January 13, 1905
The heat wave in which Melbourne has sweltered for a week is not yet broken. On Monday the Observatory registered a maximum of l04.5deg. in the shade; on Tuesday 80.9; Wednesday 108.5; Thursday 105.6; and to-day 108.5 [42°C]. The city has been, so thoroughly baked that the very earth and buildings seemed to exude heat to-day, and people, especially those of advanced years and young children, felt the severe strain placed upon their powers of physical endurance. The glare of the sun about midday was almost painful, and tho gripmen employed on the tramways found the lever so hot that it was necessary to protect their hands.
During the afternoon the sky became clouded, and the heat of the sun became less intense, but there was no relief in the shade, and even after sundown, the heat was most oppressive. The thermometer at the Observatory showed at 9 o’clock this morning 98.7 [37°C] in the shade, and 141 [60°C] the sun. An hour later 101 in the shade, and 153 in the sun were recorded, and by 12 o’clock the readings had advanced to 106 in the Shade and 161 [71°C] in the sun. The shade readings at half-past 1 stood at 108.2 [42°C], and at 3 o’clock at 103.5, which was the highest for the day.
The temperature fell very, slowly. The shade reading at 6 o’clock was 101.5, and at 7 o’clock 90.8.
The Government Astronomer issued a forecast to-night that a cool change is approaching, which will give relief in the southern districts, but that there is no present indication of relief for the exhausted settlers inland, where the temperatures during the week ranged to 118 deg [48°C] in the shade.
dioxide pollution at the time was 290 parts per million.

Climatism comment : The BBC’s Paul Hudson is suffering from a bad case of anti-groupthink disease. He needs to be brought back into line. Anyone who thinks the sun plays a significant role in Gaia’s current climate is a denier.
Paul needs to listen to the United Nation’s and their ‘peak scientific (governmental) body’ the IPCC who rightly insist that it is evil human’s 12 parts per million CO2 or 0.0014% contribution to atmospheric gases that drives our climate, not the sun.
From BBC’s Paul Hudson
It’s known by climatologists as the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period in the 1600s when harsh winters across the UK and Europe were often severe.
The severe cold went hand in hand with an exceptionally inactive sun, and was called the Maunder solar minimum.
Now a leading scientist from Reading University has told me that the current rate of decline in solar activity is such that there’s a real risk of seeing a return of such conditions.
I’ve been to see Professor Mike Lockwood to take a look at the work he has been conducting into the possible link between solar activity and climate patterns.
According to Professor Lockwood the late 20th century was a period when the sun was unusually active and a so called ‘grand maximum’ occurred around 1985.
Since then the sun has been getting quieter.
