People say a version of the following to me all the time: “How dare you contradict mainstream science regarding climate change?”
Most of the Spanish Inquisition conversationalists haven’t any sense of the diversity of scientific findings within the climatology community. They don’t know how many honest and brilliant people of science all over the world have never accepted the manmade global warming narrative at face value.
So, yes, in writing my book that predicted the kind of cold Britain and much of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is about to experience (or already experiencing), I did have to stop listening exclusively to the clique of scientists dominating the media and the United Nations’ climate apparatus long enough to understand that another narrative even existed. That is true. (UK Amazon link for book here.)
I also had to think seriously about the destructive nature of cold and what it meant if the AGW narrative builders were wrong about winter’s premature demise. It meant old people dying in their homes for lack of heat, particularly in the era of carbon targets imposed from above on utility companies. And that is just what is happening these days in the UK, as energy prices have skyrocketed at the same time that wintertime need has steadily grown, as it has over the course of the last several years.
And let’s be clear: the manmade global warming team predicted the diminishment of winter’s power, publicly, and repeatedly, for decades. Conversely, the climate skeptic community of scientists ranged in its predictions from seasonal variability to mild global cooling during the first half of the 21st century.
Such cooling, if it were to occur, by the way, would, as likely as not, begin with a slow turnaround of the climate system. And that turnaround might look a lot like what we’re seeing today. The kind of heat that built during the last few decades of the 20th century doesn’t dissipate overnight.
In the meantime, ask yourself, those of you shivering in Britain, the European continent, and Asia during the winter of 2012-2013: does a book predicting such conditions hold any interest?
Don’t sell your coat.
