Earth undergoing natural climate shift according to a report in WISN.com, 16 Mar 2009. Scientists at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UMW) have analysed the last century of climate data using a mathematical method named synchronised chaos, that looks at what happens when two or more complex systems move in and out of synchrony. Anastasios Tsonis, one of the researchers, explained: “Imagine that you have four synchronized swimmers and they are not holding hands and they do their program and everything is fine; now, if they begin to hold hands and hold hands tightly, most likely a slight error will destroy the synchronization. Well, we applied the same analogy to climate.” He went on to say: “In climate, when this happens, the climate state changes. You go from a cooling regime to a warming regime or a warming regime to a cooling regime. This way we were able to explain all the fluctuations in the global temperature trend in the past century. The UWM researchers found “the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and in fact global temperatures have levelled off since 2001.”
These results were also reported in an article in Discovery News, 2 Mar 2009, which says: “according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters, global warming may have hit a speed bump and could go into hiding for decades. Earth’s climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat.”
This led Ken Blanchard to place this article in the South Dakota Politics blog and make the following comments:
“Let’s review, shall we?
1. There has been no global warming for at least eight years, according to these climate scientists. I gather that this is the consensus.
2. During that time, man-made greenhouse gases have been increasing.
3. The climate models on which global warming predict an increase in temperature, contrary to what actually happened.
After some other comments, he concluded: “I predict that this study will be completely uninteresting to the mainstream press.”
Editorial Comment: Ken Blanchard’s prediction seems to be true. The mainstream media continues to publish frightening scenarios of man-made global warming destroying the earth, and politicians plan various ways to make people pay for producing carbon dioxide.
The most serious issue is that eight years of non-warming have proven the climate models used to justify the fearfulness and taxes to be wrong. The media and politicians need to humble themselves and admit that climate change is part of the present natural order of things in this world because the Creator and Judge of the world said it would be after He judged the world with Noah’s flood (Genesis 8:22). Since then there have been times of cold and heat, but the world will continue until the Lord Jesus Christ comes to judge all mankind and make a new earth (Revelation 22 ) where there will be no natural disasters and no fear for those who put their trust in Him.
