Should The Earth Be Cooling?


Current Climate Running Against the Grain When considering whether or not the human influence on the Earth’s climate is discernible, one of the immediate questions that comes to mind is, “What would the climate be doing in the absence of human interference?” Indeed all climate models strive to identify the impact of natural mechanisms as … Continue reading

Industrial CO2: Relentless warming taskmaster


Natural processes have determined Earth’s climatic history, but human industrial activities have introduced a new mechanism that is driving Earth’s climate future. At any given time, the Earth’s climate is subjected to a myriad of natural influences. The impact of each influence varies based on the magnitude of the natural change, the duration over which … Continue reading

Global Cooling? Pick a Time, Any Time.


Satellite Record Now Shows Warming Across All Date Ranges I don’t think that anyone disagrees with the fact that we actually are in the middle of a cold period that started about nine years ago. Now that’s not me talking. Those are the scientists who say that. – U.S. Senator James Inhofe, July 23, 2010 … Continue reading

New Study Challenges Cosmic Ray Theory


Those skeptical of the theory of anthropogenic global warming often point to the sun as the source of modern era planetary warming. The reasoning is two-pronged. The argument goes that increases in solar activity increase the amount of heat received by the Earth. However, as this is insufficient to explain the recent warming trend, this … Continue reading

A Closer Look: The Solar Influence


Isn’t the Sun driving current climate change? Last updated: February 9, 2009 No. Perhaps a better question would be, “Is the Sun contributing to current climate change?” In that case, the answer would be yes. The Sun goes through a 22-year cycle consisting of two 11-year components. At the end of each of these 11-year … Continue reading
