This is a response from John Casey, engineer, and former NASA advisor, currently the Director of the Space and Science Research Center in Orlando. FL when I asked him what are the most important things for any legislator to know currently about the man-made climate change hypothesis.
1. Global warming has ended.
2. The Earth's temperature average is on a long term down trend.
3. One of the most amazing events in the history of modern science, a "solar hibernation" has begun, and with it will come decades of deep, long cold as it always,always, does once hibernations begin. Anyone who accepts these three fundamental and easily verifiable truths of climate change, must also accept that the Sun and not mankind rules the climate variations on our planet.
Here are a few more very important aspects of the next climate change that they should know:
4. Greenhouse gasses, specifically CO2 had little effect in the past period of warming of the Earth caused primarily by the Sun, and will likewise have no tangible beneficial effect in keeping us warmer during the next cold climate era.
5. The next cold era which has already started, will bring the coldest weather in over 200 years.
6. The next cold climate era will have the potential to cause massive crop damage world wide causing the worst subsistence crisis in recorded human history.
7. Legislative action to control something that does not exist (i.e. global warming) not only creates a complete embarrassment of our nation's democratic processes upon which I believe voters will soon seek revenge, but will also cause historians to judge today's politicians with great distain in that their attempts to control climate will have made the suffering of countless unprepared and unaware citizens so much worse during the first cold climate period of the 21st century.
These truths have been my consistent message for the past two plus years.We need all to know what is happening with the Sun and what it will mean to us, our children, and grandchildren.Your help in helping spread this word will serve all well.
