“Who are you going to believe? Me or your own lying eyes?” That is a well know quote by Groucho Marx. The liberals Global Warming fraud is coming apart. This is not new information. It has been present and available all along. But the deliberate suppression or denigration of contrary theory and data has been pursued by the liberals from the beginning. The truth is that the agenda hasn’t been about climate change/global warming. It’s been about control and pursuing a statist agenda.
A Canadian peer review group is studying a paper that predicts colder weather for the next fifty years. Personally, I think portions of the theory are bunk and can be explained by other means. However, it is proceeding through peer review which is more than can be said by anything out of the ICC and their Anglican accomplices.
From IBD comes this report.

Climate Change: A peer-reviewed study by a respected Canadian physicist blames the interplay of cosmic rays and chlorofluorocarbons for 20th-century warming. The CFCs are now gone, and so is warming — perhaps for the next 50 years.
Much of the nation got a white Christmas this year, some in unprecedented quantities. A record-breaking storm deposited 12 to 30 inches of snow in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Many places set records for the most snow in a single December day as more than 50% of the U.S. was covered by the white stuff.
Scientists (and here we use the word loosely) at Britain’s Climate Research Unit may have tried to “hide the decline” in global temperatures, but it’s hard to hide two feet of snow. Their motto seems to be the immortal words of Groucho Marx: “Who are you going to believe, me or your own lying eyes?”
Qing Bin-Lu, a professor of physics and astronomy at Canada’s University of Waterloo, is a believer in the value of drawing conclusions from observable data and not from selective data fed into computer models that are based on false assumptions and include “fudge factors.”
In a peer-reviewed paper published in the prestigious online journal Physics Reports, Lu, who holds a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Newcastle, reports that CFCs, the compounds once widely used as refrigerants, and cosmic rays, which are energy particles originating in outer space, are mostly to blame for climate change, rather than carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Lu puts the start of the cooling trend at 2002 and writes that “the observed data show that CFCs conspiring with cosmic rays most likely caused both the Antarctic ozone hole and global warming. These findings are totally unexpected and striking, as I was focused on studying the mechanism for the formation of the ozone hole, rather than global warming.”
From 1850 to 1950, Lu notes, the recorded CO2 level increased significantly because of the Industrial Revolution; the global temperature stayed constant or rose only 0.1 degree Celsius.
“Most remarkably, the total amount of CFCs, ozone-depleting molecules that are well-known greenhouse gases … decreased around 2000,” Lu said. “Correspondingly, the global surface temperature has also dropped. In striking contrast, the CO2 level has kept rising since 1850 and now is at its largest growth rate.”
Other reputable scientists have also predicted decades of cooling ahead to, er, varying degrees and for varying reasons. Earth’s climate is affected by many things and is more complicated than the CRU computer models.
