PREPARE TO BE VERY, VERY COLD
Exclusive: Lord Monckton rips ‘climate cry-babies,’ says real danger is global cooling
HARRIETSHAM, KENT – Here in the Garden of England, after a long and savage winter, we have had the coldest spring in 120 years. Snow fell in the north of England as late as May 23. The trees are still struggling into leaf. The bluebells came a month late. This is the third or fourth bad winter in a row.
In Russia they have had the coldest winter and the highest snowfall in a century.
In the United States, around 10,000 new cold-weather and high-snowfall records have been set.
The climate cry-babies are wailing that global warming is causing global cooling. When one points out to them that the U.N.’s climate panel has come to the unsurprising conclusion that global warming implies precisely the opposite of global cooling, they say the warming is playing hide-and-seek with us in the deep ocean, from which one day it is going to come out and say, “BOO!” Or not, as the case may be.
My good friend Dr. David Archibald is a sun-watcher. He says the bright yellow thing in the sky that we have not seen much of in the Northern Hemisphere over the past six months is in danger of becoming less active than it has been for 300 years.
He is one among many. The splendidly named Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov of the hard-headed Russian Academy of Sciences, where few have ever believed the global warming nonsense, has been saying the same for some time.
Dr. Dennis Ray Wingo of NASA was the first to alert me to the possibility of a multi-decadal decline in solar activity. Almost seven years ago, he kindly wrote to tell me that the magnetic convection currents beneath the solar surface had slowed to walking pace, a phenomenon unprecedented since we had first been able to study them. He said trouble was coming, and it was not coming from us.
