Despite the fact that the IPCC predicted that there was going to be a one degree rise of temperature by 2010, it actually got cooler.
Dr Don Easterbrook is a professor emeritus of geology at Western Washington University. He holds a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and PhD in geology, and has studied climate change for 50 years. He is nationally known as a climate-change skeptic
In an interview with Josh Holloway, Easterbrook makes it clear that he believes the Earth is now cooling.
Unfortunately, a lot of politics has gotten involved with the sciences that relate to climate change, specifically because there are huge amounts of money involved, like hundreds of billions and trillions of dollars. There’s a huge amount of power.
Climate change is being used as a lever to try to push for a world government.
My message is look at the data and make up your own mind… What the data is saying is that global climate changes have been going on since the beginning of geologic time, and especially in the last 10,000 years.
We’ve had ice ages, and we’ve had warming periods. Most of the last 10,000 years have been warmer than it is now, for example…
We’ve had 27 climate changes in the last 400 years: warm, cold, warm, cold. There have been four in this past century that have nothing to do with CO2, because CO2 wasn’t a factor hundreds of thousands of years ago. We know that those are not at all related to CO2. So why would we expect climate change today to be related to CO2?
…(the bottom line) is that global warming ended in 1998. We’ve had no global warming above the temperatures of 1998 since then — despite the fact that the U.N. group Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted that there was going to be a one degree rise of temperature by 2010, it actually got cooler. Not by a lot, but a little bit.
We have been in a cooling trend now that’s related to ocean temperatures offshore… The Pacific changes modes from warm to cool to warm, there’s nothing in between. It’s like an off/on switch.
Though he is now “retired,” Easterbrook continues his climate-change research with an international team of over 50 members, including solar physicists, atmospheric physicists and glacial geologists. He is the author of eight books and more than 150 journal publications, including Evidence-Based Climate, published in September 2011.
