This global warming hoax is getting old!

Last winter was an average smasher; it wiped out all the warming since the '70s. This winter will tell the tale. If you subscribe to the astronomical causes it seems the Maunder Minimum of solar activity is underway and has been for ten years. If the past is a guide, decades of steep declines in temp are in store for us and there is absolutely nothing to be done about it except turn up the heat. Interestingly, if you chart the "global cooling" scare of the disco era, you see that it peaked about ten years after the cooling maxed out. Like atmospheric CO2, it seems that climate change hysteria is a lagging indicator.

A century ago a Serbian scientist named Milan Milankovitch presented a concept that seems to link glacials and interglacials to variations in Earth's orbit and variations in the axis of rotation. See Milankovitch Cycles.

Unlike the “Hockey Stick” models, this theory tracks with empirical data.

Merely another example why AGW skeptics are right. We won't see the coming Ice Age in our lifetimes, but rest assured it is on its way.
