Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov Director of Polkovo Observatory St Petersburg predicts an approaching ice age.

                     Over the last 1000 years five deep weakest(coldest) periods on the earth occurred around years 1030, 1315, 1500, 1680, 1805 which fell in respectively the Oort,Wolf, Sporer, Maunder and Dalton minimums of the sun.   These five episodes are separated by approximately 200(+/- 70) year spans. At present it is generally accepted that the quasi bicentennial cycle of the sun is one of the most intense solar cycles.

Asteroid Could End Humanity!

                                         After the recent close encounter between our earth and an asteroid  Andrei Kokoshin a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in an interview this week with Itar-Tass in Moscow said "should a large celestial body hit the earth, the effects will be far more devastating, particularly so, if that happens in a large city.  In certain cases , as many scientists have been warning ,the fall of an asteroid would spell the end of humanity"   Kokoshin is also Dean of the Moscow state University Department of International Politics and deputy chair of the State Duma`s committee on science and technology.   He said that the time is ripe for this to become an international political issue. Dmitri Rogozin the Russian deputy Prime Minister has called for Russian-US immediate co-operation in the defence of earth.  Money needs to be spent to find ways by which a rogue asteroid could be deflected from its impact path with the earth.  There are thousands of asteroids out there in space and which we do not know their trajectories.  Far better to spend money on this than wasting it on climate change measures against so called man made global warming which is actually not happening!

New paper proves that the Roman warming and Medieval warming were warmer than today.

                             A new scientific paper by Jan Esper et al published in Global Planetary Change 88-89 (2012) 1-9 has used 587 high resolution wood density profiles from living and sub fossil Pinus sylvestris (scots pine) trees in northern Sweden and Finland to form a long term maximum latewood density(MXD) record stretching 138 BC to 2006 AD.   They note that their new temperature history "provides evidence for substantial warmth during Roman and Medieval times, larger in extent and longer in duration than 20th century warmth".. They note that as the irrefutable empirical research mounts, it is becoming untenable for politicians, regulating bureaucrats and taxpayer funded scientists to maintain the falsehood that modern global warming has been unprecented.

Peer Reviewed survey finds Majority of Scientists Skeptical of Global Warming

                              A peer reviewed study of 1077 scientists published  in Organization Studies and reported in Forbes magazine( by James Taylor ( 13 February 2013) has found that the majority of these scientists believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming.  Only 36 percent of these geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis. Also two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims. Indeed leading American meteorologist Tim Kelley of WLNE  TV in Providence Rhode Island said that the big storm Sandy that hit New York recently was not unprecedented.  He said the 1938 hurricane was worse and was followed by major hurricanes in 1944 and 1954, three large hurricanes in 16 years.  He went on to say that increasing evidence from around the world shows that the main driver of terrestrial climate is the sun.   He said that the data shows no correlation at all between antropogenic CO2 emissions and climate change. An interesting aspect of the Organization Studies survey is the unmistakably biased alarmist bent of the survey takers who in their ignorance  frequently used terms such as "deniers"

Impact of the sun dominates our climate.

                               More evidence from Nasa, from Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn, from Dr H Abdussamatov that it is the sun that is the dominant player in the global climate. The new Nasa paper recently published titled "The Effects of Solar Variability on Earth`s Climate" is most revealing.  One ofthe authors Dr Greg Koop of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, overturned mainstream climate science thinking by declaring that even slight changes in solar output have a considerable impact on climate. Kopp said " even typical short term variations of 0.1% in incident irradiance exceed all other energy sourcescombined".  This massive change by Nasa shows that a paradigm shift is now in full swing and the discredited claims of man made global warming alarmists are being tossed aside at the highest levels of government.
                        London`s own Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn of and Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society has challenged Professor Joanna Haigh  to
 1.  Produce observational evidence with real observed data(or accepted proxies thereof) from the last hundreds, thousands or million years that CO2 changes in the real atmosphere drive world temperature changes.(No answer from Professor Haigh as the simple truth is they don`t!)  
 2. Produce observational evidence and physics based argument that refute our knowledge that the 22 year cycle of variation in world temperatures is driven by the 22 year magnetic Hale cycle of the sun.  

           Top Russian solar physicist Dr H Abdussamatov Director of Space Research at the Polkovo Observatorey St Petersburg and Director of the Russian segment of the International Space Station agrees with both the new Nasa paper and with Piers Corbyn.   In his classic paper
        "Bicentennial decrease of the TSI leading to unbalanced thermal budget of the earth and the Little Ice Age" Abdussamatov predicts that due to the declining bicentennial component of the total solar irradiance(TSI) and the decline of the 11 year solar cycle(which are not being compensated by a decrease in the emission to space of the earth thermal energy) the earth is quickly heading into a new Little Ice Age due to start 2013/2014 and lasting well into the 22nd century!   No more global warming this century!!
