It includes ice core measurements and references to the Maunder and Dalton Solar minimums, oceanic readings of isotopes etc etc. Worth a look it's by a Professor J. Easterbrook from the Geology department at Western Washington University.
. VEry intriguing read! Thanks for posting it!

I wouldn't go as extreme as 2 years, but we're definitely in trouble.
In the 1970s, there was increasing awareness that estimates of global temperatures showed cooling since 1945. Of those scientific papers considering climate trends over the 21st century, only 10% inclined towards future cooling, while most papers predicted future warming. The general public had little awareness of carbon dioxide's effects on climate, but Science News in May 1959 forecast a 25% increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide in the 150 years from 1850 to 2000, with a consequent warming trend. The actual increase in this period was 29%. Paul R. Ehrlich mentioned climate change from greenhouse gases in 1968. By the time the idea of global cooling reached the public press in the mid-1970s temperatures had stopped falling, and there was concern in the climatological community about carbon dioxide's warming effects. In response to such reports, the World Meteorological Organization issued a warning in June 1976 that a very significant warming of global climate was probable
Continued Cooling May Jeopardize Climate Science And Green Energy Funding!....
....There is good reason for this cooling climate consternation. As David Whitehouse at the Global Warming Policy Foundation points out: “If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change.” Whitehouse notes that there has been no statistically significant increase in annual global temperatures since 1997. He goes on to say: “If the standstill (lower temperatures) continues for a few more years, it will mean that no one who has just reached adulthood, or younger, will have witnessed the Earth get warmer during their lifetime.” (Since 1997, atmospheric CO2 has increased from 370 ppm to 390 ppm.)

Wherever you're getting your information from is a crock. It's true that some places have had and are having an extended winter, that doesn't mean global cooling though. There's an extreme misconception that global warming means warmer everywhere, it doesn't... before that happens we will go through climate change, meaning chaotic weather. We are continuing to see global mean temperatures rise.

the "global warming policy foundation" is merely a think tank to find any and all info that goes against the climate scientists. THEY are not scientists..... they only research ANTI science. that is their only goal.
*edit to add that they get funding from suckers like you while THEY laugh all the way to the bank.edit on 13-5-2013 by pasiphae because: (no reason given)
