A new category for interesting small pieces or information that I do not necessarily want to write a full article about. Some snippets come from interesting anonymous comments.
Some paleoclimatic studies have stated that during periods of significant cooling in past millennia, the onset of the cooling has coincided with increased earthquake and volcanic activity. We are currently facing the potential of a Grand Solar Minimum which supposedly will result in 40 to 70 years of sub normal temperature averages.Whether this is occurring as we write, no one knows for sure. See the following website. This article (which prefers to wait until 2030 for the trend to be obvious also states "This modern GSM has increased levels of volcanism either on the rift zones (underwater volcanoes) or from the various volcanic hot spots, and those time-line incidences are increasing with a shortening time span between them."
CO2 spiked at 550 ppm in 1825 and 1942. The average for the 19th century was 360 ppm. There are data sets of CO2 measurements starting in 1812, the apparatus were calibrated against known quantities of CO2 and were accurate to within 3%.
The most important factor influencing both weather and climate-cloud formation and cloud cover-which are influenced by the sun the other important factor in determining average surface temperatures. And right now we are observing increasing cloud cover in the tropical pacific and Atlantic where most of the solar radiance hits the earth (that's why it's so warm in the tropics and the polar regions so cool). This increasing cloud cover is likely due to the very low solar magnetic activity and weak solar wind. This means more cosmic rays penetrate and ionize water vapor leading to more condensation and cloud formation.
The last time this very low magnetic activity as monitored by sun spots was observed we went into the little ice age, crops failed, and many died. So climate change is very real but man made global warming is false and is really a religious belief system since satellite radiometric measurements show that average temperatures haven't increased for the last 20 years. This belief system is driven by the desire of certain (((groups))) to have global taxes and governance to "solve" this warming problem giving (((them))) even more power and control.
The origins of ISIS
My favorite is FOIA litigated source material that isn't legitimate because of who did the litigation. A classic, Defense Intelligence Agency source material on the reasons why the U.S/ Gulf States/ allies supported the development of ISIS to form a caliphate in Syria to counter Iran isn't legitimate because Judicial Watch did the litigation & they're ' right wing' (LOL).
