Not as Bad as It Could Have Been, But Not Good.EDITOR'S NOTE 2/23/2015:
This was first published in April of 2012. Since then we have received , reviewed, and published our analysis on the global warming debate. Clearly the overwhelming evidence is that the very minor global warming that first started the debate more than 20 years ago was not a trend but a typical weather cycle. The increase in global temperatures ceased for nearly 200 months though visible evidence of the slight warming continued until about three years ago when we clearly entered a cooling cycle predicted by solar flare activity. Then the Atlantic Ocean temperature inversion cycle manifested its self. This is a cooling event that affects the globe but especially North America and Europe. The Temperature inversion typically lasts up to about 18 years. The truth is no one really knows if we are emerging from a three year solar flare induced cooling trend, or a longer more complex cooling trend. But global warming stopped increasing years ago, and global average temperatures, subject to the usual local variations, started falling about three years ago. Still the main point in the the analysis that we published following the global climate change conference three years ago holds. Mother nature is quite capable of inflicting on us massive climate change without any input from us and governments should put some effort into planning for societal survival not if, but when, we are next visited by natural massive and sudden climate change.
Previously on March 22, 2012 our guest blogger Vic Socotra introduced our readers to the mythological Japanese giant catfish named NAMAZU. The Namazu of legend was a mythological explanation for Tsunamis and coastal earth quakes , pictured as the results of the wiggling of the giant catfish named Namazu. Vic used NAMAZU as an entertaining vehicle for an exploration of the causes, effects, and record of severe, sudden, climate change. He described for us such climate game changers as sun spots, orbit wobble, axis rotation irregularities, volcanic activity, meteor strikes, and various combinations of such. The point of the original NAMAZU article was that catastrophic climate change has happened in the past with no warning signs and has overtaken life on earth with catastrophic results.
In our second installment in the Namazu series we noted that the present climate crisis comes with lots of warning that it is on going. Unlike orbit wobble, or volcanic activity, we in theory, could do something about it if global politics and economics could for once work in tandem for the planet's health. There appears to be little time but there does appear to be time. In our second article built on the original NAMAZU article, we asked the question of what if we actually dodged the present clearly visible on coming bullet? Isn't it a mathematical certainty that one day when we least expect it one of the previous causes of massive climate change such as orbit wobble, sun spots, volcanic activity, axis rotation irregularities, or some combination of similar elements will again strike us as in the past? Our considered scientific answer is yes there will one day in the future regardless of how we handle the present self imposed crisis occur a massive climate change about which we can do nothing in terms of prevention or mitigation.
