What Global Warming?

Climate change this week: The coming Ice Age

"The earth is possibly on the brink of another Ice Age -- and we don't mean the third installment of the animated movie trilogy. According to the Milankovich theory of Ice Age causation, there are three astronomical cycles that affect the climate: the tilt of the earth, which varies over a period of 41,000 years; the shape of the earth's orbit, which changes over 100,000 years; and the Precession of the Equinoxes, sometimes called the earth's "wobble," that over a period of 26,000 years rotates the direction of the earth's axis. The confluence of these events in the not-too-distant future could mean a return to another Ice Age.

Fans of anthropogenic global warming -- man-made warming -- point to rising CO2 levels over the last thousand years with the accompanying warming of the planet to point to humans as the cause and give dire warnings of the future without massive government intervention. The trouble is, CO2 reflects climate change -- it does not predict it. The ice core data collected from Russia's Vostok station in Antarctica reveals that CO2 levels today are approximately what they were at the end of the last interglacial period. At the very least, reports such as this put the lie to the "consensus" argument of global warmists, and, if true, we should be stocking up on warmer clothes."
