Global Temperatures   Leave a comment

I found this interesting bit of news buried on Page 28 of a transportation research document.

Despite the media hyperbole, it is an open secret among scientists and engineers that the climate shifts are a normal cycle the earth goes through.

As research explores these issues, many questions remain. Decade-to-decade warming and cooling trends, for example, complicate the forecasting to address these issues. Despite rising temperatures, climate models predict that parts of the globe will experience both long- and short-term cooling trends. The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) indicates that changes in Pacific and Atlantic Ocean currents will cause warming and cooling trends in Alaska on a 30-year cycle (4). The last change occurred in the mid-1970s, with high temperatures, and the next cycle in the PDO has begun a drop in temperatures. Some climatologists maintain that the upcoming PDO will be shorter but will lower the depth of the cooling trend beyond past cycles (4). Others predict a deeper and perhaps longer PDO, similar to the beginnings of the last ice age.

The real consensus is that the earth’s temperature shifts, in approximately 30-year cycles within a larger about 300-year cycle and that we should adapt to these shifts rather than panic of them. But panic provides the ruling class with an excuse to rule, so by all means, they must create a crisis.
