Quietly....ever so quietly....there have been a couple of Canadian environmental scientists this week who poured over data from the new Jason satellite. They were a bit shocked....and then climbed out of their lab to indicate that a cycle of twenty-three years is about to start....hard cold and harsh years....global cooling just a mile or two up the road.
This fancy satellite....which survey ocean data.....is showing a much larger than normal persistent Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This data related to a period of cooler weather which typically lasts up to 25 years.
The curious thing here...if the boys are correct....is that this defies climate beliefs that human-emitted carbon dioxide was completely responsible for the recent cycle of global warming (1970s-1990s)...may not worth discussing much in the future.
If the boys are correct....it may be wise to lay in a bit of firewood....prepare the attic for some extra insulation....and buy a couple of extra snow-shovels each winter. Life just might be a little bit more miserable than that global warming period that you "enjoyed".
