So far this year, the advocates of the great, Global Warming scam have been strangely reticent in promulgating their outrageous and fanciful theories of an earth warmed up as a result of man-made, carbon emissions.
For sure, there was a whimsical attempt at a documentary which tried to instill the idea that we alone are responsible for the Earth's woes but it failed miserably. For his disastrous efforts, a certain person was eulogized by the usual cortège of fawning sycophants and was exalted to even further heights after winning a questionable Oscar from well-placed acolytes in Hollywood.
Meanwhile, to the consternation of the Great Unwashed, the Earth stubbornly carried on cooling. And it continues to do so.
Since it's the Sun - and NOT carbon-dioxide - which is the primary cause of changes in the Earth's temperatures, you will have noticed that the summers in Great Britain, apart from elsewhere, are now not so hot as they have tended to be. This is because there is a dearth of sun-spot activity and according to the latest research by William Livingston and Matthew Penn of the National Solar Observatory in Tucson, they predict that sunspots will all but vanish after 2015.
The logical conclusion to the absence of any sun-spot activity would be a return to what has been called the MAUNDER MINIMUM. This is a period in our history when the River Thames in London used to freeze over and a time when Europe and America suffered from bitterly cold winters. It lasted roughly from 1640 to 1715 when sun-spots were extremely rare and it almost became a mini ice-age. We were able to skate on rivers and ponds and, like the words in the hymn, the earth was "hard as iron". Such scenes were later depicted on Victorian Christmas cards.
I doubt whether this information will be repeated on the BBC or Murdoch's Sky News. In fact, I'm certain it won't. It doesn't suit the agenda. However, a scam is only a scam as long as it can remain hidden. When the thermometer starts falling and as the ice begins to thicken, these so-called "journalists" are going to have to crawl under the nearest rock.
