Another Scientist Predicts Global Cooling

The story is here. The number of reputable scientists forecasting cooling, while small, continues to grow. Of course, cooling would be catastrophic for mankind because we could not grow enough food to feed the world. To an extent, the greenhouse gases we have in the atmosphere form a sort of insurance against mild cooling.

There is a story here that Dr. Zharkova's presentation of her paper did not go over well. As to that, I would like to cite this story from Ed Driscoll.    

Jerry Taylor of the Cato Institute tells a story about Julian Simon, the late and great economist.He was at some environmental forum, and he said, “How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?” Naturally, every hand shot up. He said, “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” Nothing. Again: “Is there any evidence I could give you — anything at all — that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?” Not a stir. Simon then said, “Well, excuse me, I’m not dressed for church.”
