In an unfortunate turn of events for all those people who rely on global warming alarmism to get other people to do their bidding, it seems that the earth will continue its current cooling trend for at least the next decade.
Not to be deterred by inconvenient facts, global warming alarmists are using this trend (which has actually been going on since the late 1990s) to intensify their apocalyptic rhetoric:
Yes, it is cooling now, but only because the heat is being transferred down into the deep oceans. That’s going to upset the food chain, destroy all coral reefs, and cause the extinction of all species on earth! And then, when the the oceans are boiling lava hot, they won’t be of any use anymore to cool the earth. And that’s when global warming will really take off. Mark my words: in ten years time, when the “hiatus” ends, the earth will melt like fudge in a microwave. And then you’ll call for us. But we’ll be long gone and of no use to you then. We’ve already reserved our spots on the mother ship that’s returning to retrieve Al Gore. But what will you do in that hot, horrible day of judgment? Dah-duh-DUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!
This “debate” is stupid. I find it humorous that these same “scientific” hucksters love to make fun of their fire-and-brimstone cousins, the end-times Bible charlatans. It would be nice if the public saw both of them for what they are—preachers out to gain converts. Not for the sake of a cause. Money and power, people. Fear is a powerful motivator. Much more consistent and reliable than love and loyalty in terms of monetary payoff.
Don’t trust it. If you are in real danger, you’re going to have to figure that out for yourself. Unfortunately, it is hard to determine that from the reports of your would-be overlords. I don’t trust them when they say that everything is going to be okay. And I don’t trust them when they say the sky is falling. I simply don’t trust them.
