Physics Prof. Quing Bin-Lu of Canada's University of Water-loo, put together a peer reviewed study showing "natural changes" in the inter-play of cosmic rays and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) for "warming" temperatures in recent years. In other words, our cars, factories, and machines had little if anything, to do with it.
Prof. Bin-Lu and his colleagues have determined the warming period has about come to an end because the CFC's have left. The scientific team believes the CFC's will not be seen again, " perhaps for the next 50 years (when another warming cycle might begin)."
The Canadian research team released a statement accusing Britain's Climate Research Unit, one of the early groups to declare the Earth was warming and man-made hydrocarbons were responsible, of trying to hide the decline.
As more and more scientists step forward and are now predicting cooling for the next 30-50 years, who do you believe?

It has all been a bunch of bull crap to destroy capitalism. Al Gore was to make big money off of cap and trade.
Did you see the New York times, gas will have to go up to $7.00 a gallon to meet Obama's standards he is calling for.

1-It's not just ONE scientist, Gailll.
2-We were told WARMING was the big problem, remember? (Al Gore and his hockey stick graph)
3-And 20-50 years of COOLING would wipe out any WARMING we have had.
4-It wasn't until it was clear that the warming had stopped 10-15 years ago that they changed the name to Climate Change.

Here is an well-respected IPCC climatologist.
Prof Latif, who leads a research team at the renowned Leibniz Institute at Germany’s Kiel University, has developed new methods for measuring ocean temperatures 3,000ft beneath the surface, where the cooling and warming cycles start.
He and his colleagues predicted the new cooling trend in a paper published in 2008 and warned of it again at an IPCC conference in Geneva last September.

In order for there to be global warming every year doesn't need to get warmer. Scientists look at decades.
And the climate has actually gotten cooler in the last 10-15 years. The largest degree of warming was in the first half of the 1900's.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
