Global Warming (and cooling) Is Caused By The Sun!

Scientists at Oregon State University et al. have determined that periodic ice ages are ultimately linked to “…slight shifts in solar radiation caused by predictable changes in Earth’s rotation and axis.”

Did you get that Al Gore?

In a publication to be released Friday in the journal Science, researchers from Oregon State University and other institutions conclude that the known wobbles in Earth’s rotation caused global ice levels to reach their peak about 26,000 years ago, stabilize for 7,000 years and then begin melting 19,000 years ago, eventually bringing to an end the last ice age

So the warming we have experienced the last 19,000 years are due to the sun!

“Solar radiation was the trigger that started the ice melting, that’s now pretty certain,” said Peter Clark, a professor of geosciences at OSU. “There were also changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and ocean circulation, but those happened later and amplified a process that had already begun.”
Sometime around now, scientists say, the Earth should be changing from a long interglacial period that has lasted the past 10,000 years and shifting back towards conditions that will ultimately lead to another ice age.

Maybe, the scientists are right that man made GHGs are causing warming, BUT just enough to forestall an ice age, which would be devastating to the developed nations. Can you imagine New York, Montreal and Chicago under three miles of ice?

Here’s my axiom: When politicians get around to fixing something, it’s either too late or the problem doesn’t exist anymore. There is one more possbility, that the fix is wrong.
