Every time a north wind blows hot air over Adelaide, some Chicken Little cries “Global Warming”. And when an El Nino predictably causes a hot year like 1998 or 2015/16, some sensation-seeking celebrity will trumpet “hottest year eevah”.

They are watching short-term weather ripples and waves and ignoring the underlying climate tide. Daily, monthly and yearly temperature records will always be equalled or broken by extreme weather – that is what weather does.

In the medium term, Earth temperature trends are influenced by variations in solar activities as evidenced by sun-spot cycles. These variations affect solar intensity, cosmic rays, clouds and Earth temperature, causing medium-term climatic events like the Little Ice Age and the Modern Warming. There are persuasive signs that recent solar activity has peaked. So we can expect cooler weather soon.

But to see what the climate is doing we must look long-term and study the glacial cycles. The Milankovitch cycles of Earth in the solar system control these.

See: http://www.indiana.edu/~geol105/images/gaia_chapter_4/milankovitch.htm

Is it warming or cooling now? 

See this very informative video by Professor Bob Carter:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpfMM3bVbhQ;t=159

There are many signs that Earth’s climate is gradually cooling (as Prof Carter shows in the video above).

For example, snow and ice is accumulating.

In the Antarctic, Mawson’s Hut and the Colbeck Hut are being progressively buried in ice. In Greenland, “The Lost Squadron”, which was forced to land on the Greenland Ice sheet in 1942, was rediscovered 50 years later buried under 268 feet of ice. Many glaciers are just a few thousand years old, and Himalayan glaciers are growing.

To read more about things getting buried in the snow and ice, see Mawson’s Hut:

Himalaya Glaciers Growing:

We live in the Holocene warm interval within the Pleistocene Ice Age – a time of recurring cycles of ice separated by brief warm interludes. Earth’s climate is driven by solar system cycles, and climate changes appear first in the Northern Hemisphere which has more land in the sensitive sub-polar regions. The GRIP ice core from Greenland shows the long-term average temperature there peaked 7,000 years ago and has trended down for at least 3,000 years.

Greenland now cooler than 8000 year ago:

We will still have hot days and heat waves but the climate mid-summer has passed and the temperature tide is going out. Spreading alarm about short-term temperature fluctuations of a fraction of a degree is a distraction.

No warming for 58 years:
http://realclimatescience.com/2016/03/noaa-radiosonde-data-shows-no-warming-for-58-years/

Moreover, promoting damaging energy and land management policies designed to prevent warming just as the next climate winter approaches will be seen by future generations as bizarre.

The first person who predicted that emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels and other burning processes would cause global warming was Svante Arrhenius, who published the paper “On the influence of carbonic acid in the air upon the temperature of the ground” in 1896.

Born December 1938. 107 degrees. Married January 1960. 104 degrees. 1938. 438 people died due to heat. I am living the recycle of weather but a lot of younger people refuse to acknowledge that we ever had a heatwave before. No aircon no fans We have all got soft so hot days become heatwaves

I watched a video on ancient Egyptians – shows that they did not build the pyramids – the tools used to cut the stone comprised of 20 foot disks of a substance stronger than the stone itself. Also hieroglyphs were graffiti on top of statues polished. So they (Egyptians) moved into the area after a catastrophe. Claimed it as their own. It is what we are taught – political requirements in that ‘they’ tell us what to think without question. It is always the victors and/or the thieves with politicians that rewrite history. We just have to question – climate… Read more »

Note how the “followers” invariably attack the man not the argument. I suggest you BB also look at simple facts. We are coming out of the last ice age – of course the planet has been warming. Why do you need to follow conspiracy theories and other bizarre suggestions to explain something that is really quite understandable and logical?

The only response to Climate Change is Tax. More tax, new tax, as long as we are taxed, the climate change will be fixed.

I’ve been on the land forty years and have my own memory of hot seasons and cold ones, droughts and times you’d lose your gumboots all winter. I just don’t take any notice when people say this is the hottest/ driest/ or whatever. All I know is that there are always more bad years than good ones and it’s about time we had a good one again. I want a wet autumn, warm winter and spring floods. Summer can be anything it wants, I’ve only ever seen one green one.

Carbon deposits need to be kept out of the hands of fools who think their only purpose is to burn them.
These are the same sorts of fools who thought the Tasmanian Tiger would never go extinct. Or the sorts of fools who have allowed fishery after fishery to cease to exist.
Or those Islamist fools who destroy ancient ruins because they see no value in them other than as building material.

Thank you for your brilliant article Viv Forbes. This article of yours sums up the lying Left’s version of fear mongering in a nutshell.

The MalABC is going from insane to ludicrously insane (apologies to Tesla) programming. Here’s their Q&A last night: “Dr Alan Finkel said during an appearance on the ABC’s Q&A program, which focused on science and also discussed AI and gender equality.” Pushing the queer barrow with all their might.

BB, the squandering of fossil fuels is in the overproduction of goods, particularly throw away stuff; plastics, cast metals, electronics etc. I think you will find that Viv is all for responsible use of resources. Responsible use includes allowing fossil fuels to be burnt for production of needed goods and energy. There is no greed in that.

Think so, Billy? Well, think some more…broaden your mind….ask why China and India did not agree to the Paris conference re climate change? Because they know that the only hope their millions of people have for a better standard of living, is by using coal, because it is cheap. Do you still think Viv’s article has a ‘greedy tone’ to it? Think outside that little box you live in!

Easter is fixed according to the moon cycles so its no surprise that Easter coincides with changes in the weather.

To quote Miranda Divine: “The earth will warm, the earth will cool, and there’s nothing that anyone can do to change it” I think that says it all. I’m thinking of getting a T shirt printed.

Put yourself in this position. You’re a Professor or Doctor of Science, with reasonably bleak employment prospects. A Government flunky approaches you and says “We would like to put you on a “x” years contract to bring us some proof of Global Warming (now Climate Change) so we can scare the shit out of our people to introduce new taxes and levies to increase our revenue”. Your only response would be “can I employ 50 of my colleagues and their offsiders to help me with this project?” Of course says the Government flunky spare no cost as long as you… Read more »

BDS, first, whoever wrote that post about ‘polar bears and penguins starving because of lack of ice’ was an idiot, there are no penguins in the Arctic! Second point, at 72 yrs old I can well remember the [actual] heatwaves we had in the Mallee in Victoria back in the 1950s. They lasted for over three weeks at a time with no rain at all and temps 100F at midnight hotter in the day sometimes up to 120F or more. We ran out of drinking water. Now THAT was a heatwave not just three hot days! Poor little diddums haven’t… Read more »

Thankyou again for an excellent article with the necessary reference material. I note that the alarmists rarely reference their material in an acceptable manner, if at all. By giving us these references you are arming us for any debate we may encounter. I would be grateful if you or any of the readers could point me to any research relating to the ‘acidification of the sea through CO2 forming weak carbonic acid. As I understand it, when this week acid interacts with Ca, it forms CaCO3 and 2H ions. It is these H ions that warmists refer to as causing… Read more »

Sydney has supposedly had some record number of consecutive days above 26 deg C. What a crock of crap. 26 is some magical temperature point? Some established benchmark from which to measure all records?? May as well have said the “Sydney is sweltering in its 588th consecutive day above 12 deg C. It makes just as much sense.

In Melbourne we had a pleasantly cool summer. Few comments ensued. Then in March came a spate of hot days and suddenly I read about our endless summer and global warming.

Yes, on the run with all the government grant funds they squirrelled away in Caymen Island before the wider population realised it was just a big con job.
