While global-warming rhetoric has been heating up for years, a new ice age may be poised to befall us. And the prospects of such an event are truly scary.
A report in The Guardian newspaper stated that a research paper authored by a team led by Sarah Ineson at the U.K.’s Met (government meteorological office) concluded that a weak solar cycle could produce “decreases in global mean temperature” by 2050. However, lest the study be used as ammunition to prove that global warming is a natural periodic phenomenon rather something caused by anthropogenic (human) activity, the report is filled with cautionary comments.
Data from the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that the United States has undergone a cooling trend over the last decade.
Will man's end be authored by the “irreversible” problems of overpopulation, environmental degradation, and climate change, as a prominent scientist has claimed?
The encyclical on the environment released by Pope Francis on June 18 has drawn both praise and criticism from leaders around the world, with defenders of the theory that the planet is doomed because of “global warming” caused by “carbon pollution” praising it. Those who recognize that there is no provable connection between human activity and the Earth’s natural warming and cooling cycles are wary of the encyclical, however, and regard it as dangerous ammunition that global warming alarmists may use to advance the UN’s environmental programs that threaten both the world’s economy and national sovereignty.
