article imageOp-Ed: Conflicting claims on 'Climate Change' create conundrum

By Larry Clifton     Aug 12, 2014 in Politics
Traditional Global Warming theorists, who now call it Climate Change, are confused and taken aback by the latest studies on the subject(s).
When the politics of Global Warming overheated as evidence of global cooling emerged, activists began referring to the phenomenon as “Climate Change,” which could encompass just about anything related to climate or weather.
Zhengyu Liu, a professor at the Center for Climatic Research, University of Wisconsin, says that there are “robust contradictions” between two recently published studies on Climate Change/Global Warming.
When the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change requested data to show global temperature trends over the past 10,000 years, competing scientific theories cast a dark cloud over think tanks committed to tracking Global Warming and, or, Climate Change.
While Liu and his colleagues pointed to a global warming trend over the Holocene (about 10,000 years), their theory contradicts another scientific study published in the journal Science, last year. The study published in Science describes a period of global cooling, which presents a bit of a conundrum for so-called Climate Change scientists and its political advocates.
While just about everyone from grade-school children to rocket engineers understands that the Earth has undergone climate change since its creation, or the “Big Bang” for those who prefer, today’s most brilliant scientists are at odds over Earth’s temperature trends during the last 10,000 years.
The notion that Earth is cooling presents a real problem for Climate Change alarmists who cut their teeth calling the phenomenon Global Warming. As evidence showing a global cooling trend mounts, the politics of Global Warming have become a Bunsen-burner under the rear-ends of Climate Change politicians. The conundrum for climate change activists is to reverse their original global warming claims to global cooling, which wouldn’t be such a big problem if Global Warming advocates and Climate Change alarmists weren’t the same people.
For those who are confused more than ever about climate change, the geo- and bio-thermometers used in last year’s study indicate that the period of global cooling began about 7,000 years ago.
What climate change activists will refer to in the study to embellish on their climate change theory is that the cooling trend began to thaw after we humans came along and started using fire and inventing stuff.
Eventually, the cooling trend will become a warming trend because of we Earthlings and the only conundrum is to figure out when the activists will let us know when the new trend begins, or if it has already, or not, or something in between. Understand?
