Inaugural Lies and the Big Chill

“Obama routinely refers to “climate change”, the new name for “global warming”, and has already wasted billions on “renewable” energy, wind and solar, including algae, otherwise known as pond scum.”

Inaugural Lies and the Big Chill

By Alan Caruba

In his second inaugural speech, Barack Obama said, “We must respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations”?

To what “climate change” is Obama referring? Is it the now thoroughly debunked “global warming” hoax? Is it the climate change of the 11,500 years since the last ice age? Or is it “the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms” to which Obama referred?

If it is the latter, does anyone actually believe that these natural events can be mitigated by anything Americans or the entire population of the world can do? Did any among the thousands in attendance at the inauguration, shivering in the frigid weather, wonder what the President was talking about or why?

After more than three decades of being told that the Earth was dangerously heating up by people like Al Gore and the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, there are more voices warning that the current cold cycle that will last, at a minimum, several decades.

The public continues to be misled to the mainstream media and, more importantly, by the federal government whose increased environmental regulations are based on the global warming lies, so who can you believe?

Publications such as Science magazine have been so politicized at this point as to be virtually useless. Roger Pielke Jr., a professor of environmental studies, recently released a study that updates his study of the magazine, noted that “In a 2009 paper I documented that Science magazine published 40 editorials critical of the Bush Administration during its two terms, and only 1 such critique of the Clinton Administration’s previous 2 terms. I have just updated this analysis through the first term of the Obama Administration, and found no editorials critical of the Obama Administration.”

It should be noted that Obama routinely refers to “climate change”, the new name for “global warming”, and has already wasted billions on “renewable” energy, wind and solar, including algae, otherwise known as pond scum. The Obama EPA is releasing an avalanche of new regulations based in part on the “global warming” myths and dubious “science” regarding levels of pollution that are worthless.

Recently I received a book by John L. Casey, “Cold Sun: A Dangerous ‘Hibernation’ of the Sun Has Begun” ($14.50, Trafford Publishing, softcover), the president of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SPSC). It is essentially a one-man operation and Casey’s book is an effort to warn the public about the fact that the sun has entered a cycle of very low sunspot activity. More sunspots mean warming weather and fewer mean cold weather. SPSC has the support of a number of scientists who concur that the planet has entered a cooling cycle, something well known to meteorologists, climatologists, and solar scientists, even if it remains generally unknown to the public.

Casey has been issuing press releases since 2007 warning of a decades-long period of cooling that will likely have some extremely serious effects on the planet that include droughts, increased volcanic activity, earthquakes, and the death of millions as the history of such events in the past demonstrates. He is candid about his credentials and the lack of response he has gotten from the media and those in the government he has tried to inform.

Of one release, he says that “In fact, it was seen with even less credulity since it was proposed by someone essentially unknown in the professional climate science community, a person without any past record of university research and not one published paper in any scientific journal.” It would be easy to dismiss Casey, but he has been a consultant to NASA, “performing space shuttle and space station analysis” and done studies for the Department of Defense “performing rocket launch studies.” He has a BS degree in physics and mathematics and a MA in management. So it can be said he has extensive experience in areas that require a sound body of knowledge.

Others are also forecasting a serious cold cycle. In January 2012, Habilbullo Abdusamatov, a scientist from the Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences predicted a sharp drop in temperature starting in 2014 and a new “little” ice age that will last at least two centuries with a peak in 2055. It would be the fifth such event over the past nine centuries, the last of which lasted from 1300 to 1850 when the last warming cycle began.

In January 2012, Wall Street Journal science columnist Matt Ridley, noted that the cycle of warm weather between ice ages that the Earth has been enjoying “is already 11,600 years old, and it must surely in the normal course of things, come to an end.”

One of the leading authorities on ice ages, Robert W. Felix, author of “Not By Fire, But By Ice”, like Casey, became fascinated with ice age cycles and spent eight years studying them before publishing his book in 2005. He maintains a website, that is well worth visiting as he documents the weather events of our current cold cycle and the advent of a new ice age.

Casey’s book reflects his mission to educate the public to the dangers of a sun whose low number of sunspots (magnetic storms) is well known among solar scientists and generally under-reported. “This particular solar cycle (#24) peak is one of the lowest since cycle #14 in 1906 which had approximately 64 sunspots,” Casey told me. “We measure each solar maximum every eleven years to determine the average of solar activity by sunspot count. We have had solar maximums in the past there were over 200 sunspots and some as low as 50. The relevance of information about the number of sunspots is that when the count goes below 50 we enter a much colder climate era.”

Some will dismiss Casey for not having the credentials of climatologists and meteorologists. Many with these credentials jumped on the global warming hoax by way of securing grants and other funding. A courageous few debunked global warming until it became obvious that it was a lie. There will be those who will dismiss his warning as hyperbole. In “Cold Sun” he says “A historic reduction in the energy output of the Sun has begun. The most likely outcome from this ‘solar hibernation’ will be widespread global loss of life and social, economic, and political disruption.”

As the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) said, “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” It is very likely that as the current cooling cycle—now over 16 years old—will increase, Robert W. Felix’s, Casey’s, and others with traditional credentials in meteorology, climatology, geology and physics will eventually be heeded and the Big Chill will have become self-evident.

  1. I’ve been telling people about this for a few years as well due to you and other various good information from other scientists and people in the know.
    People think you are full of rubbish and they actually believe it is us who is making climate change. The ones who have an extremely closed mind are the ones who have done university.

    Some of our smartest people are also our dumbest, thanks to university.

    • I agree and Academia should hang their heads in shame.

      All of the stupidest remarks are today made by people with PhDs – especially climate scientists.

      My favourite is

      “As a result of the atmosphere’s ability to radiatively insulate the Earth’s surface from losing infrared energy directly to the “cold” depths of outer space, …”

      Spot the absurdity ??

      Lots of people don’t !

      It is the ““cold” depths of outer space” remark.

      Firstly, it is absurd to apply physical concepts to something that has no substance – the vacuum of space !

      Secondly, while it is true there is very little radiation in deep space this is most certainly NOT true of the space surrounding Earth.

      The Earth orbit is literally awash with Solar radiation capable of heating planetary surfaces WELL above the boiling temperature of water – the only place to escape it is in the shadow of a planet.

      That doesn’t sound too “cold” to me.

      I, as a layman, can see this obvious mistake, but PhD qualified climate scientists continue to display their inability to think creatively or critically and continue to sprouting rubbish like this ad nauseum.

      • The other point is

        “the atmosphere’s ability to radiatively insulate the Earth’s surface from losing infrared energy…. ”

        This is complete BS as well !

        There is NASA data which shows the heated lunar surface loses energy radiatively to space at a rate resulting in a temperature loss of LESS than one Kelvin per hour.

        I can put near boiling water in the atmosphere of my freezer and have ice in 8 – 10 hours !

        The atmospheric cooling rate is almost 10 times the MAXIMUM found on the Moon.

        At the rate of cooling on the moon I’d have to wait 4 days – I’d have drunk the Scotch by then !

        My freezer is capable of minus 15 degrees at most – clear proof that both the claims made by the climate scientists are just wrong !!!

        Earth orbit space isn’t cold !

        The atmosphere doesn’t insulate anything – in fact it is the opposite – REAL data proves it !

        • I should have said the climate scientist that made the statement quoted doesn’t think the period of rotation – the length of day and night – matters.

          I reckon the Moon would be far hotter than the Earth on average – without any atmosphere at all – if it had a 12 hour long night (as on Earth) rather than a 354 hour long night.

          The Moon would not cool much in 12 hours.

          This is, apparently, “dangerous anti science”

  2. One day you will learn that this IS about business.

    It’s just about business to be controlled by the very, very rich.

    The very, very rich don’t say ‘is this the right thing to do?’, they say: ‘will we make money doing it?’

    The lying doesn’t mean anything, as long as the media line holds.

    If they get 25% ROI from the Government for windmills, that’s ‘addressing the challenge of climate change’.

    On the other hand, if they have to pay taxes on their income rather than salting it in off-shore bank accounts, that’s ‘communism’.

    One day people will forget the slogans and just ask: ‘which direction is the money shovelling toward?’

  3. If we are correct about global cooling, it will be so obviously large & cataclysmic, that these previous AGW arguments will fade away like America’s experience with Prohibition.

    Which is actually a good simile for AGW; get the 3 CD series by Ken Burns, “Prohibition”, to see what it’s like when an entire segment of the population goes off into a 14 year ‘make-believe’ world and tries to enforce it. Then read P.J. O’Rourke’s famous essay on “the power of make-believe”.

  4. The global warming lies will continue until the liars are buried under the ice sheets and deep snow of a new ice age. It is doubtfull that they will come to their senses before they die of hypothermia.
    So don’t listen to the warmists and other flat earthers and don’t obey their BS legislation and if they attack you with force kick their butts off the face of the earth no matter what it takes. It is just pest control and nothing to feel bad about.

  5. Well, certainly, increased vulcanism and earthquakes must be caused by human industrialization, right? So, when the new little ice age begins, with vigor, and possibly a full-blown ice age, the leftist agenda of de-industrializing the western industrial nations, that Obama pushes, will be shown for the lie that it is. In the meantime, we must try to educate our gullible families, friends, and neighbors…or not. Just get ourselves prepared for the worse.

  6. An ice age will only confirm the eco-fascist lies about the warming. They are already trotting out non-science b.s. such as; the arctic is melting pushing moist cold air into russia and china, thereby creating snow and cold records [and lots of dead bodies]. Don’t underestimate the cult of warm. Propaganda is one of their skills. They will twist reality to fit in with ‘climate baloney’ no matter how insane it truly is. 50% or 47 %, of the public will dutifully believe it and attach the requisite bumper sticker to their smart/dumb car, and wear the necessary sloganeering Tshirt.

  7. There is a lot of money involved with the scams of global warming and climate change – trillions of dollars.

    This is the “hideous symbiosis” of government, the media, academia, business, social engineers, and environmental communists, all feeding at the trough of public money, pursuing a cure for which there is no disease, trying endlessly to cut the legs out from underneath the evil Capitalist USA.

    As H. L. Mencken said: “the aim of practical politics is to keep the popoulace alarmed – and hence clamorous to be led to safety – menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary”.

    The Grand Solar Minimum is underway. Prepare for decades of bitter cold, fuel shortages, crop failures, and food shortages. No amount of CO2 warming is going to help us.

  8. The point of “follow the money” is very well stated, but. The thought that one day the “warmists” will be buried under a sheet of ice, however, is wishful thinking. It will be the poor, the old, and the disabled that will be “buried under a sheet of ice,” since they will not be able to migrate to the “Agenda 21” santuaries being set up for the wealthy when the time comes. Realize that the AGW “scam” is not about money, it is about ridding the world of the unneeded population – their belief, not mine – and leaving it for those of “substance” and that group of suckups that will do anything they are told to do, just for the privelege of “serving” those that chose themselves to be the new aristocracy.

  9. Please share! This video of John L. Casey needs to go viral. Everything in Caseys book Cold Sun is in agreement with the things Mr. Felix has written in Not By Fire But By Ice. Increasing Cold; Increasing Volcanism; Increasing Earthquakes; Dropping Sea Levels. Share this with everyone you know:
