Climate change has drawn a recent flurry of comments in the Neighbor. Throw this in the mix.

Glaciologists say that for the past million years, Earth has experienced cooling and warming cycles approximately every 100,000 years. There have been periods where glacial ice sheets spanned to Earth’s equator, covering nearly the entire Earth surface. There have been several ice ages and no ready answers as to why these ice sheets grow and retreat. This has occurred without any human interference.

The global warming and/or climate change advocates can give no explanation why Earth’s temperature has not risen in the past 15 years or why the Antarctica sea ice has grown and reached a 35-year high.

When the advocates say that any cooling is caused by warming, the public begins to realize how absurd the claim, “the science is settled, debate is over.”

There are a couple of things to be learned from this. Get your science from a science source, not an agenda source. The National Academies Press is a good source. Al Gore, Fox News, MSNBC and liberal, conservative or libertarian think tanks are not good sources. Accept that you are still a layman.
