Researcher: Duke Study on Global Warming Slowdown Half Right

By    |   Monday, 27 April 2015 07:11 PM

A new study led by Duke University that points to slower-than-expected global warming should have gone a step farther and addressed the real threat to humankind: a long planetary winter that is already under way, says the researcher behind a book and documentary forecasting 30 years of cold.

"That's my only regret about that study," John Casey, author of "Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell," told "Newsmax Now" co-host John Bachman on Newsmax TV  on Monday.

The Duke-led researchers surveyed 1,000 years of climate data embedded in the natural record, in the form of chemical isotope traces, said Casey, president of the Space and Science Research Corporation and a former White House national space policy adviser.

What they found is that global warming is not occurring as quickly as climate models have projected — but that warming could accelerate based on natural up-and-down variations in the trend.

Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, remains a lonely voice among climate watchers in predicting the opposite — catastrophic cold — and he's been dismissed as unqualified, or worse.

Casey counters that he is a kind of climate heretic under attack for questioning a global warming consensus that he charges is a politically motivated fraud.

But he said on Monday that he's made headway since he launched his campaign eight years ago to publicize the threat posed by a cyclical solar chill.

"There's a host of new science data and research that's come out," he said. "I've posted many of the scientists on our website at SpaceAndScience.net to give people a glimpse of others who are out there saying the same thing, that a new cold era has begun."

Casey also criticized officials in southeastern Florida for proposing to spend billions of dollars on levees to keep the ocean at bay.

"It's simply not necessary," he said.

"Miami, of course, is subject to regional tides and other variations that are not part of climate change whatsoever," he said.

"Back in August of 2013, I held a news conference in the greater Miami area with other scientists where we announced that global sea levels were in fact going to be dropping fairly steeply between now and the 2030s, so there's really no reason to be concerned about sea levels in Miami and Florida or anywhere else in the world over the next 30 years."
