When it comes to climate, Dr. Willie Soon should know what he is talking about. He currently works for the Solar and Stellar Physics Division at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
Breitbart reported on a recent interview Soon had with Alex Newman of the New American, where the climate scientist went against the popular opinion of the day, when he issued a warning that the earth would soon be entering a time of cooling.
He described the sun, which is responsible for 99% of the earth’s energy, as being in a weakened state due to less sunspot activity.
Soon added that heightened sunspot activity in the 80s and 90s resulted in a warming phase, but that has now ended.].
He went on to say that this cooling phase, that could last until 2050, is a more serious concern than global warming as it will have much greater negative impact.
He said, “If you want to face a serious problem, worry about an ice age; never worry about global warming.” He added that it could be reminiscent of the Little Ice Age that the world experienced in the 1600s and 1700s that had a devastating impact on society.
Soon’s comments falls in line with the conclusions of a group of astronomers looking for planets compatible for life. Before starting their search, they first needed to determine what an ideal planet would be, and concluded it would be five degrees warmer than the earth’s current temperature.
It took a lot of courage for Soon to make that statement in light of the world’s current political climate, as he will undoubtedly face a serious backlash from the man-made global warming machine.
I think a rapper named @Zubymusic summed up today’s culture best when he tweeted:
“Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right.”
