John Hawkins interviews Dennis Avery about Climate Change
Posted by: McQ on Monday, July 14, 2008

Avery is the co-author of "Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1500 Years":
We are experiencing now, mild global cooling. We had a peak temperature in 1998, at the end of a hot El Nino and the climate model said this is just the beginning, it's going to get much hotter. But, it didn't. For 10 years, the temperature held stable.

During this time, from 2000 onward, the sunspots were predicting cooling. Let me point out to your readers that sunspots have had a strong history of predicting our temperature changes 10 years from now. A 10 year lag in predicting how solar activity will warm or cool the ocean. But, from 2000 on, they were predicting cooling.

2007, we got it. 2007 was significantly cooler and that was the first major downturn in the temperature in 30 years. That cooling has persisted — at this point, in temperature, about back where we were in the year 1900.

Yesterday, I debated a guy on the Irish radio network and he said, "Oh that's not true, the UN has not told me that the temperatures went down." I said, "If the UN can't read their own thermometers they're in even bigger trouble than I thought."

But, the Hadley Centre in Britain, the Goddard Space Institute here in the US, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville, which gathers data from the temperature satellites, all told us the temperatures have gone down. They also just announced weeks ago that their...satellite shows the Pacific has shifted into a cooling phase. This is important because for the last 400 years, the earth's temperatures have mirrored the temperatures in the Northern Pacific.

...The end of the warming phase was 1998 then the Pacific fluttered around for 10 years...and now the cooling phase has begun, is likely to last for another 25-30 years....moderate cooling, not another ice age — the same sort of cooling we had from 1940-1976.

Hmmm, something afoul is working here.

Predictions based on observable phenomena come true!

It must be the work of the devil.
