The coming Ice Age - maybe?

About: national post story

pic source: ...

And remember the Arctic Sea ice? The ice we were told so hysterically last fall had melted to its "lowest levels on record? Never mind that those records only date back as far as 1972 and that there is anthropological and geological evidence of much greater melts in the past.

The ice is back.

Unfortunately for them there is evidence today that may bite global alarmists in the ass! Did you read the whole article?

Mark de LA says
& from the linked article:
source: ... Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile

(...)  Adapting to peak oil (...)

I am with you mostly on all of these, but for different reasons using different methods for different results.   The above I think is a myth or I don't know what you are talking about.
It never ceases to amaze me what the ever increasing materialistic arrogance of some humans (not you, BTW) beget in the name of science & in the way of governmental oppression in what started out as a yearning of humans for a free society. More on that later in group threefold society

There is good reason that "evidence" like this is termed "anecdotal". 
Must try to read the whole article:
source: ...

No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA

And remember, in an emergency Al Gore can be used as a floatation device.

Please have that same attitude toward the panic produced by Gore et al.
I think i do.  The veracity of the Global Warming Proposition has very little to do with my own personal attitude.  Adapting to peak oil, freeing our dependance on the ME, and the cultural and economic oppurtunities of a green bubble where our entire infrastructre gets retooled are my driving motivations.

I'll wait for hyperlinks to the data published in scientific journals and the subsequent analysis by climate scientist before i hyperventilate.  Things go up ... thing go down ... a one year drop in some temperatures may not mean all that very much ... the price of oil fell .50 this morning off its all time high yesterday ... is that a trend?  ... is it on its way down now? Personally it feels to me that it is getting colder ... but that kind of measurement is, like you have said, all about where you stick the thermometer.  Me i'll keep turning to scientists to ground my beliefs and not the first article on the internet that sounds sensational.  But thanks for pointing this out ... i'll keep my eyes open about it.
Please have that same attitude toward the panic produced by Gore et al.

Apparently, according to Climate Progress, the original source of this item was this blog entry. Please note the correction to the Drudge report at the bottom ...

I wish to state for the record, that this statement is not mine:

Correction ...

We had a very hot January (2007) that just happened to be followed by a warmish January (2008).
... sorry.

Yep, throw away any data that doesn't fit your hyped theory.  That's not science that is religion!

If you people are going to deal with averages (like one temperature for the whole Earth) then don't throw out the problem with averages like so-called anomalies.

Re-read the quote I quoted. He's trying not to have to explain it.

I have not heard of anyone proposing to throw away this data point.  But because we are so close to it we must see it now as just a fluxuation. 

Let's face it ... it it gets warmer I am going to take that as confirmation of my belief that humans are causeing a problem that they can fix ... it it gets colder you are going to take that as confirmation of your belief that God is in controlling the Earth (perhaps through sun spots).  People keep believing what they want to believe.  Same as it always way ... same as it always was.
