Global warming has been a hot issue for the past few decades. Most of the reports I read in the past few years, showed and blamed human for global warming. I have never read anything about the other sides of the story, earth cooling down, and global warming is not caused by human.
A recent report published on the BBC website, questioned the scientific community about global warming. The BBC Climate correspondent Paul Hudson asked what happened to global warming? He said, in the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures. In fact, 1998 was even warmer than 2008 or 2009, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.
Climate change skeptics argue that there are natural cycles, over which we have no control, that dictate how warm the planet is. Further more, they said that the warming we observed was down to the energy from the sun increasing, and the solar charged particles impact us far more than is currently accepted. After all 98% of the Earth’s warmth comes from the Sun.
But Piers Corbyn, a solar scientist completely disagrees with this argument.
Global warming skeptics admitted that the planet temperature has increased in 1980s and 1990s, but that increase was due to a positive cycle in the oceans. However, In the last few years the Pacific Ocean has been losing its warmth and has recently started to cool down. This indicates that our planet temperature is not going to increase, but its going to decrease.
Is this theory correct? We don’t know, but we know that it wasn’t given much attention for many years.
Lets say it was correct, then what about all the money that countries spent to fight the effects of global warming? Was it a waste?
