Isn’t this interesting, The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that global cooling is actually under way, not global warming. What will Al Gore say? What page or chart will Al direct us to that contradicts this premise? I can’t wait for Al’s rant telling the world that The Old Farmer’s Almanac doesn’t know what the hell they are talking about. Hell I thought Al invented The Farmer’s Almanac.
Based on the same time-honored, complex calculations it uses to predict weather, the Almanac hits the newsstands on Tuesday saying a study of solar activity and corresponding records on ocean temperatures and climate point to a cooler, not warmer, climate, for perhaps the next half century.
“We at the Almanac are among those who believe that sunspot cycles and their effects on oceans correlate with climate changes,” writes meteorologist and climatologist Joseph D’Aleo. “Studying these and other factor suggests that cold, not warm, climate may be our future.”
