Climate Change

As a physicist of sorts, I like to burrow into climate change science from time to time. This:

from CCNet caught my eye, because it suggests reasons for the current cooling spell and makes near-term predictions that should be verifiable.

It seems to me that actions that have clearly defined benefits outside climate change - energy conservation, diversity of supply - ought to be given priority over those that have only costs (carbon capture, vast subsidies for solar power).

Nature has it's own cycles, no messing around with it, it is more powerful and so spontanious.
Trouble is with all that data I just read in the document, if looking back in hindsight in years to come. Wonder if they would laugh or say,"they were right or wrong in many ways".
No one knows really, it is nature and the silence of it's secrets are well hidden from us all. The time, the moment it all changes is only for them who witness it when it happens. Yet in many ways the earth's surface and climate is being neglected by us all.
Much more could be done to stop polluting the sea's. They have a purpose for this planet and abusing the nature of it's power is having detrimental effects on us all.
As with history - the earth will cool and heat at various stages,but this is natures way of regenerating the planet.

There has always been seasons and this will never change. Whether it hot or cold for certain durations, no amount of scientific predictions will touch the surface of what's really happening, as they said their self, it is a complex analizes.

What did amuse me in the doc. was the sentance about the martians! lol.
wonder if they are declaring something here.

Spot on the money there. We need to deal with energy supply issues anyway - so why bother with the climate change rhetoric when a significant proportion of the population are highly sceptic. Explain that we are running out of fuel sources, and need to look to the future.

Also thanks for that doc - it's making for very interesting reading.
