As I’ve predicted here… we are more likely to get cold than warm.
Reasons… volcanoes, El Nino, and lower sun activity. And BTW… these are things actually measured and KNOWN to make it cold. No simulations here. Simulations don’t shut down air travel!
This is not alarmist fantasy or 2012 babble — several natural forces that are known to cause cooling are awakening simultaneously, raising speculation of a “perfect storm” of downward pressures on global temperature. These forces let loose one at a time can cause the Earth to cool and can bring about harsh winter conditions. If they all break free at once, the effects could be felt not just in the coming winter, but year-round, and for several years to come.
Our spring in St. George has been awesome. I wouldn’t mind a little summer cooling here. But… in the interest of humanity, I’ll accept that global warming is probably better for us as an aggregate.
