How could this happen? Are you trying to tell me that in this day and age, with human activity climate change deniers being stoned and quartered (figuratively, at least for now) almost every day, there is still research money being spent on science that aims to disprove that human beings are to blame for climate change? Finnish research claims that human activity only accounted for 0.01°C of the 0.1°C temperature increase during the last hundred years while a Japanese study claims that low cloud cover was to blame for the increase in temperature.
Now there is a new Chinese study that found that winters in northern China have been warming since 4,000BC – regardless of human activity. Driving forces include the sun, the atmosphere, and its interaction with the ocean. The study also suggested that the impact of the sun on the Earth’s climate may be greater than previously thought. As a result of the research findings, the Chinese scientists are now more worried about cooling than warming. “A sharp drop of temperature will benefit nobody. The biggest problem is, we know it will come, but we don’t know exactly when.”
Looks like the last word in climate research has not been spoken which is exactly as it should be.
