Global warming meets its Waterloo. Literally.

Dr. Qing-Bin Lu says we need to worry about global cooling, not global warming

Uh-oh. A new peer-reviewed study authored by Dr. Qing-Bin Lu of Canada’s University of Waterloo, calls bullshit on the whole global warming scam.

Actually, the good doctor is more generous in his assessment of the scammers than we are. He says they were merely wrong.

The Financial Post has the red hot details:

Long-term global cooling began in 2002, according to a just-released study in the Journal of Cosmology, a peer-reviewed publication produced at Harvard-Smithsonian’s Center for Astrophysics. Man-made global warming was real and dangerous, the study finds, but the danger has passed.

The study, authored by Qing-Bin Lu, a rising star at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo in Canada, explains why climate models have been so spectacularly wrong in trying to tie the global warming of the last half of the 20th century to CO2 — the climate modelers fingered the wrong culprit when they targeted CO2. The true culprits, Dr. Lu explains, were CFCs, the now banned substances that until the 1990s had been a refrigerant and propellant to products as diverse as air conditioners and hair spray cans.

Fortunately for the globe, environmentalists had CFCs banned because of their role in depleting the ozone layer, not realizing that the ban was simultaneously solving the global warming threat.

According to Dr. Lu, the phase-out of CFCs will be reversing the global warming effect by ushering in a 50 to 70-year period of global cooling.

As we speak, Al Gore and Nigerian bankers are hard at work trying to figure out how to make a buck on this new global cooling scam.

Over the planet’s history, climate has altered a gazillion times. Most before there WERE people, so obviously not the only problem. And only have had engines for about 200 years, so that’s not the issue. I thnk the climate will keep right on changing, and Nature, or God is not asking our input. If they were that oncerned about human contribution, they would let everyone in 3rd world countries die, and no diseases would be treated, only patients quarantined to prevent spread. Preemies could kiss it good by, and no one would need an advance directive, because no-one woudl ever be resuscitated. What? I’m a monster? Hey I’m not the one whing about humans and global warming!

Hey Dr. Lu, CFC’s not banned globally. One of the largest smuggling cases in California a few years back wasn’t drugs or humans, it was R-12 from Mexico for all the older cars that newer higher pressure more expensive(TAX) less effective refrigerants don’t work for their A.C. systems. BTW aren’t we all dead yet from the OZONE HOLE? ACID RAIN, DDT, 1970’s ICE AGE, SWINE FLU, BIRD FLU, WEST NILE VIRUS, SARS, AIDS? Yep, science sure is about science and not politics or extortion techniques to keep your funding going.

And I recentoly read the ozone hole is closing, which is yep, you guessed it, increasing global warming. Do ANY of these people have 2 sparking brain cells?

Amen brother. The third world doesn’t worry about these issues. Issue after issue is only to drag the western world down. Oh, and to fund the next research paper.

I’ve got a 30lb cylinder of R12 in my garage. So I could open the spigot and start another wave of global warming? I promise not to do that for, say, $100 million?

How about forgetting the whole climate change, warming or cooling, scam and getting on with life? Quit taxing energy and blaming cars for everything a go get lives.
