Weather Investigation: Our Climate And The Change We Are About To See
In todayâ€™s investigation, we look at the climate and some interesting, proven facts.
Fact#1: The Earth has been cold before and, just like history, the climate of the earth does repeat itself. Here is one period that sticks out very well, the 1970â€™s; the earth was in a cool phase and it was even labeled the â€śMini Ice Ageâ€ť. Oh, and donâ€™t forget the CO2 Emissions were on the rise during that time period, which has been labeled as the problem for Global Warming.
Fact#2: The Earth has been warmer in the past than it is now. There have been multiple periods in the earthâ€™s climate cycle where temps have been warmer than they are now. So even without human made CO2, the earth still gets hot.
Fact#3: The third interesting thing is that in the 1970â€™s we hit a solar max, just like we are going to be doing in 2013. The solar max in the 1970â€™s had only sun activity of around 100 sunspots during that max. The reason this is important is because the max of 2013 is following right along the same path, which is setting the stage for a repeat in our climate cycle.
Fact#4: The sun controls more of the climateâ€™s impact. Here is an interesting fact that I found during the research and building of my climate model; the United Nations Climate Freaks have also documented that the sun may be more important than originally planned in all of their climate models for 2013. So, why they are not accurately predicting the future?
Fact#5: The 1970â€™s were referred to as the Mini Ice Age. We were going through the cycle of heading to a solar min; during a solar min the Earth becomes cooler. If anyone remembers, during the winter of 2009 it was recorded that all â€ś50 states of the USâ€ť had snow cover for the first time. This should have been one indicator that we were starting the cooling process. Oh yeah, and that was around one of those solar minâ€™s as well.
Fact#6: The climate is defined as a given temperature and moisture content of a given area over a period of time of at least 30 years an AVERAGE. Guess what? To get an average, you must have high numbers and low numbers to make that average. So warm periods and cold periods build the climate average of a region. I think that itâ€™s safe to say about 60 year climate cycles are well pronounced. Here are some facts to back that up. During the 1930â€™s, the United States experienced some of the worst droughts in history, the â€śDirty Thirtiesâ€ť. These droughts lasted for some time. In the 1990â€™s, the United States started to see droughts increase again and become very strong, with what looks like maxing out in the 2010â€™s period. More food for thought; in the 1970â€™s the earth entered into the max of a â€śMini Ice Ageâ€ť. So, if we do the math and look at the odds stacking up in our favor, around the 2030â€™s we could have new headline news â€śThe earth sees record amount of Ice buildupâ€ť.
I will finish with a scientific statement from one of the best scientists in the world, Sir Isaac Newton. I will use a small phrase from his law. â€śFor every action there is an opposite reactionâ€ť. This law, stated in science by Newton, is very powerful in that our climate fits right into that law of science, as well.
Here is my theory on how our climate can fit into that law. If all the ice over Greenland begins to melt, where does that cold water go? Into the oceans. And all of that cold water will force the warm currents to begin a reverse pattern, which explains how the ocean waters will get cooler again, just like in the 1970â€™s. This colder water then, in return, will force more cold weather events on the globe allowing for the addition of more ice.
