Global Freezing, Actually.

2012/01/29

Quoth InstaPundit:

Forget global warming – it’s Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again): Met Office releases new figures which show no warming in 15 years.

Meanwhile, leading climate scientists yesterday told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food.

Heh. I know what’s freezing over, and it ain’t the Thames.

      Damn straight.

      Naw, the CO2 isn’t going to warm things up outside. But someone has to keep the greenhouses warm. Besides, I’ll need gas to move South… to north Georgia, probably East Texas.

    There is no East Texas in North Georgia. 🙂

    Not to change the subject, but I love the painting. It seems to refer to old Japanese, or even Chinese, paintings on silk screens.

      Yes! Certainly does. This is one of my very favorites. There’s a sense of joy and activity having one over on the gloom of the cold.
