Via Greenie Watch:
The justifiable alarmism will be about shortages in both global food supplies and global energy supply. The food supply will be reduced because of the shortened growing seasons in the “temperate food supplying regions” of the world resulting from this global cooling. This reduction in food supply will only exacerbate the current global food crisis caused by Kyoto “carbon credit initiatives” that have turned “food crops” into “biofuel crops” with the resultant widespread starvation of the poorest people in the poorest nations.
The potential energy shortages will result from the increased energy demand dictated by the cooler temperatures. This shortage will be far more severe than it should be because of the costly, inefficient, and limited solar and wind power initiatives and the virtual stagnation in expansion of efficient and high volume energy producing facilities for the past decade that have resulted from The Kyoto Protocol initiatives and exorbitant “Carbon Capture and Sequestration” (CCS) requirements that have made expansion of fossil fuel power production facilities economically unfeasible.
The global data demonstrates that there was only 23 years, from 1975 to 1998, during which there was actual global warming concurrent with rapid increases in CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. Prior to that, the world cooled from 1942 to 1795 with increasing CO2 emissions that went from 4gt/year in 1942 to over 20gt/year by 1975. During the rapid global warming that preceded this cooling period, there was only a minor increase from 3.5gt/year at the start of the warming in 1910, to 4gt/year by 1942 when the warming ended.
It’s like the 70’s all over again. Remember the TV Show In Search Of… hosted by Leonard Nimoy?
