Quick! Switch On The Air Conditioner!!
Yes! Do it now! The earth is on the verge of a massive cooling!
Run to your A/C! Go start that car and make it run at idle! Take a holiday involving some intercontinental flight!
Global Cooling, this was the same phenomenon sold to us in apocalyptic tones when I was a boy! And then, it was sold by the same anti-Western agit-props who are now telling us we are soon going to fry, or at least get severe climate change shocks!
You know what? The best weather forecaster cannot forecast absolutely anything with a reasonable chance of success beyond a handful of days. What do we know? We know that the earth has phases in which it tends to become warmer and phases it witch it tends to become colder.
We know this because we have seen it happening in the past couple of thousand years. But how it happens, and how long each phase goes on, is as per today not in our power to predict with any accuracy.
Some things we know, though. There was a time when Greenland was so green that they called it that way. A time in which England was a reputed producer of wine. A time in which patrician palaces in England were built with porticos open to the interior, and people dressed in tunics as a matter of course.
No one fried. The world was, actually, extremely prosperous. The melted arctic ice did not flood England. The wine tasted just fine.
I do not believe anyone who tells me he can reliably forecast the climate changes in the next 100 years. But I am a Christian, and believe that Creation is good, and that anyone who thinks God created a planet that his creatures can destroy by producing perfectly natural, harmless emissions (or, in the end, by multiplying according to His command) should be seen by a doctor and watched very closely by a man dressed in white.
That would be funny. A man in white watched by another man in white.
“Mom, who is that man in white?”
“The one near the madman? It's a nurse, dear…”
