'Climate Scientists,' Take Note

Don Easterbrook, professor emeritus of geology at Western Washington University, has been studying climate science since before climate science became cool (pun intended) (a span of fifty years). His take on all the global warming hooey that is being tossed about by all those learned scientists/politicians who tell us on a daily basis that the planet is heating up and that we're all going to die?

Professor Easterbrook:
If there is one thing constant about climate it is that it’s not constant. It’s always changing. It has always changed. We are coming out of what has been called a "Little Ice Age,” which happened about 500 years ago.

For 10,000 years before that, the climate was actually warmer than it is right now, then we plunged into that Little Ice Age. We’ve been coming out of a hole ever since. The last 400 years we’ve been thawing out of the Little Ice Age, if you like. So yeah, it’s been getting warmer about one degree a century. It’s been going on. There’s nothing new about it.

So the warming we saw, which lasted only from 1978 to 1998, is something that is predictable and expectable. When the ocean changed temperatures, global cooling is almost a slam dunk. You can expect to find about 25 to 30 years yet ahead of us before it starts to warm up again. It might even be more than that.
Global warming is predictable and expectable. As is global cooling.

Which means we're not all going to die.

Al Gore, call your office.  You have some explaining to do.
