Global cooling, here we come

Would it surprise you to learn the greatest global two-year cooling event of the last century just occurred? From February 2016 to February 2018 (the latest month available) global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. You have to go back to 1982-84 for the next biggest two-year drop, 0.47°C—also during the global warming era. All the data in this essay come from GISTEMP Team, 2018: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP). NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (dataset accessed 2018-04-11 at This is the standard source used in most journalistic reporting of global average temperatures.

    Won’t be reported by BBC and rest of left statist MSM; re-interpreted as man-made climate change burning fossil fuels cause Global Warming (CO2) and Global Cooling (Particulates, NOx).

    More taxes and more taxpayer funded jobs research needed.

    Gov’ts, stop troughing. Your job is to make your country’s people’s lives better & richer not worse & poorer.

      You’re forgetting how these people think. Their response won’t be ‘flip! verything we’ve said is nonsense! (which they know)’ it will be ‘Our ideals and values while sometimes difficult have been necessary. We need vastly more taxes and more green to ensure this continues.’

      Green is what it has always been. Another excuse to take money from the worker and move it to the state. Everything is about restricting and controlling the people, making them behave as big state wants them to so it can take more tax – for their own good, of course.

      After all, government knows best. Doesn’t it. Say yes or we’ll arrest you for hate speech.

    Global Warming caused by man made emissions of Carbon dioxide is a figment designed, promulgated and propagandized by the political ruling elite and their muppet media empires to convert the other muppets and the elite’s make a killing, ain’t it always the way.

    What happens when the Temperatures take a hike downhill, roll the bloody tumbrels.

      Horse-drawn tumbrils of course – gotta keep the green mob happy for their last few mins on Earth.

    I wonder how much of that cooling was caused by geoengineering efforts? I regularly see the sky above my house being sprayed with goodness knows what and have taken countless photographs to record it. However, despite several requests to my MP, who now refuses to enter into any further correspondence on the matter, and several government departments denying any involvement, I am told that our governing bodies do not engage in any form of geoengineering activities. This despite government documentation to show that they do so.

    I noticed we had a geoengineering free day yesterday, which was possibly because of that wedding event.

      More of that poisonous dihydrogen monoxide. Its a greenhouse gas itself, doncha no.

    What we will need, then, is more CO2 to make not a scrap of difference but enrich the profiteering academic mob. ‘Grant, (they) beseech, Oh Godess Gaia, thy bounty be reefed from the wallets of taxpayers’.

    HAARP or similar?
