This Week's Good News

I don't want to dwell on bad news this week so from the Australian, here's the news we've finally been waiting for.

We can finally stop worrying about global warming because sun spot activity is showing that we are in a trend of global cooling.

Disconcerting as it may be to true believers in global warming, the average temperature on Earth has remained steady or slowly declined during the past decade, despite the continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and now the global temperature is falling precipitously.
All four agencies that track Earth's temperature (the Hadley Climate Research Unit in Britain, the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, the Christy group at the University of Alabama, and Remote Sensing Systems Inc in California) report that it cooled by about 0.7C in 2007. This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record and it puts us back where we were in 1930. If the temperature does not soon recover, we will have to conclude that global warming is over.

All those urging action to curb global warming need to take off the blinkers and give some thought to what we should do if we are facing global cooling instead.
It will be difficult for people to face the truth when their reputations, careers, government grants or hopes for social change depend on global warming, but the fate of civilisation may be at stake.

Meanwhile the Daily Mail reports on the Mea Culpa from Green Goddess, Trudy Styler and husband Sting about their not so Green lifestyle resulting in a huge carbon footprint. Not to worry Trudy. Just keep flying back and forth between your 6 mansions on your private jet, including flying your Italian Chef from your Tuscany villa up to London to deliver food.

However, Miss Styler clearly feels she is doing her bit for the planet - and managed to offer some advice on the subject, too.
She said: "I think within the next year we have a period of huge responsibility for this country to keep GM at bay.
"We spend a lot of time in America and you often don't know when you are eating GM food. I say keep GM out of Britain."

And thank God Trudy, in a time of food shortages you are doing you best to keep GM at bay!
