With the spates of recent chilling weather, especially in Europe and North America, proponents of man-made global warming are conjuring up new bizarre explanations to prop up their pet and very expensive theory. The latest ace from their sleeves was launched at Christmas time from one of the major platforms pushing their false gospel – the New York time. The opinion-ed written by Dr Judah Cohen,(introduced as “ the director of seasonal forecasting at an atmospheric and environmental research firm”) took off by attempting to put as mere “feelings” all the undeniable record level cold weather being observed; and that in truth the earth continues to get warmer. In Dr Cohen’s words: “THE earth continues to get warmer, yet it’s feeling a lot colder outside. Over the past few weeks, subzero temperatures in Poland claimed 66 lives; snow arrived in Seattle well before the winter solstice, and fell heavily enough in Minneapolis to make the roof of the Metrodome collapse; and last week blizzards closed Europe’s busiest airports in London and Frankfurt for days, stranding holiday travelers. The snow and record cold have invaded the Eastern United States, with more bad weather predicted.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/26/opinion/26cohen.html?_r=3&ref=opinion#h)
Yet, in the opinion of this supposedly learned environmental jauggernut, (who is also, an associate editor of a peer-review journal on climates), all these chills are actually due to global warming. He patiently tries to explain: “As global temperatures have warmed and as Arctic sea ice has melted over the past two and a half decades, more moisture has become available to fall as snow over the continents. So the snow cover across Siberia in the fall has steadily increased “
So the culprits is moisture generated as a result of heating of the planet by man’s action. However, as pointed out by FrontPageMagazine, it is interesting that global warming folks could be falling back to pronounce water as a major contributor to global warming, for they have always, and still do, deny that water has any substantial role to play in global warming issues. However, apparently to wriggle out of a desperate situation, it is allowed to cling at whatever straw is available, and now carbon-dioxide, even if temporarily, has another competitor in determining the ambient temperature on planet earth.

With this latest abracadabra explanations from Dr cohen, it is clear that global warming alarmists can always explain any observation to suit their doctrine. But the real test of scientific models is not so much about explaining existing data, but making predictions that could be verified. The fact of the matter is that the current chilling climate is totally at variance with the predictions of a mild, unseasonably warm winter this year.by official government forecasters ( who base their predictions on the Nobel-prize winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change model).As mentioned by Dr Cohen in his article, the British government is actually demanding an explanation from the UK Meteorological Office on the situation, which failed to forewarn of the current situation of a winter close to being the chilliest in nearly 1,000 years . FrontPageMag, contrasted this abject failure of the global warming mafia with the bulls-eyes prediction by maverick British meteorologist, Piers Corbyn,who forewarned of a bone-chilling winter. Like most scientists not restrained by official muzzles, Dr Corbyn believes that solar activity, (and also moisture) is the most important climate driver of all.
Despite a nearly unanimous condemnation of global warming hysteria – as reflected by blog comments from all over the world; and the official documentation of the position of thousands of credential scientists who disagree with the principles used to prop up man-made global warming claims (see, eg. Vol 13 No 2), the official scientific position still remains that mankind is warming up the planet. And this forms the basis for policies by the UN and its agencies. These policies are very costly in their demands which seek, eventually, to subjugate the peoples of the world unto a central control – a control which could more easily facilitate the rise of an antichrist figure.
Because of the very high stakes involved, official scientists are expected to fall in line, and “rebels” are viciously dealt with. A latest example is the summary dismissal of Dr Gavriel Avital from his position as the Chief Scientist of Israel’s education ministry. In announcing the dismissal, Education Minister, Gideon Sa’ar, explained that Dr Avital was dismissed over his statements denying the “fundamental tenets of science”—evolution and anthropogenic global warming. Somewhere, Dr Avital had written: “..Part of my responsibility, in light of my position with the Education Ministry, is to examine textbooks and curricula. If they keep writing in textbooks that the Earth is growing warmer because of carbon dioxide emissions, I'll insist that isn't the case” .
