Russian Scientists say period of global cooling ahead due to changes in the sun

I’m not going to run out and buy a parka just yet, but the idea of extended cooling based on solar activity makes much more sense to me than a catastrophic heat rise based on CO2. At least for the sun’s effects, there is a demonstrable historical correlation. Not that it’s proven (yet), but there’s more evidence for solar-induced climate cycles than for anthropogenic global warming.

Watts Up With That?

From Radio Voice of Russia:

Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory: “we could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years”

Scientists at Russia’s famous Pulkovo Observatory are convinced that the world is in for a period of global cooling.

Global warming which has been the subject of so many discussions in recent years, may give way to global cooling. According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless. Some experts warn that a change in the climate may affect the ambitious projects for the exploration of the Arctic that have been launched by many countries.

    Why do you think the leftists changed the name from global warming to climate change. Global warming was provably wrong if the earth did not actually get warmer, but there will always be climate change, in one direction or the other, so this way the leftists can continue to claim doomsday, and the need for worldwide socialism to prevent it, no matter what actually happens. The tragedy is so many people beleive this leftist drivel.
