Global cooling trends combine with volcanic eruptions in Iceland to create a more massive and devastating impact. Cooling is much more devastating than warming to society at large combined with the ever dwindling supply of oil and the devastating impact to agriculture the trends clearly show that the earth has in fact been cooling over all, for the last ten years not warming as previously predicated by the IPCC and the greens. Again the issue has been what is new and sexy and can be used to the greatest political and emotional impact. The scientific community has again failed us because of the desire to manipulate data to support their views in order to obtain funding for their own pet projects, and we have suffered for their arrogance and greed.
The potential eruption of Iceland's volcano Katla would likely send the world, including the USA, into an extended deep freeze.
"When Katla went off in the 1700s, the USA suffered a very cold winter," says Gary Hufford, a scientist with the Alaska Region of the National Weather Service. "To the point, the Mississippi River froze just north of New Orleans and the East Coast, especially New England, had an extremely cold winter.
Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming
Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.
No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously
