From 2009: Science Denier Predicts Global Cooling

December 5, 2021

I came across this looking for something else on my hard drive.

Long time observers will remember Dennis Avery of the Hudson Institute, who, with no scientific credentials, confidently predicted a sharp drop in global temperatures, back in the late 2000s.
How did he do?

    It will all cool off was a popular denier meme.
    — Joe Bastardi, the popular denier meteorologist, liked to talk of a “triple crown of cooling”, which was ocean cycles, solar cycles, and volcanoes. It would cool the climate right back down before 2030. I have no idea whether he still espouses this view, but in the past he mentioned it frequently.
    — Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Luning wrote a book 10 years agao Die kalte Sonne, explaining how the climate is destined to cool off soon. Their web site is still in business.

  2. Tere will be a lot of cooling in the Northern Hemisphere. It is called winter. And by the way: I am not a climate sceintist.

    Most students now know that all you need to start an ice age is CO2 levels falling below 180 ppm for a sustained period. Likewise, an ice age ends when CO2 levels clime above 280 ppm (at least this is the pattern for the last 3-4-5 million years). So with CO2 levels more that 135 ppm above 280, and human population at 7.9 billion as of last month, why would any rational mind think that an ice age is in any future?
