World getting cooler, not warmer, insists Bellamy

By RONAN McGREEVY
The Irish Times, November 11, 2009

WORLD-RENOWNED botanist and broadcaster Prof David Bellamy has predicted the world will get cooler over the next 30 years rather than warmer, as many climate scientists have predicted.

He said a period of global cooling had already begun, citing evidence that the Alps had more snow last winter than at any time for the last 26 years.

Prof Bellamy has been one of the best-known sceptics of man-made global warming, despite being an environmentalist. Yesterday, as patron of the Tree Appeal, he helped children at Cabinteely Community School to plant trees. The initiative aims to plant 100,000 trees in the UK and Ireland to encourage biodiversity and to act as a learning resource.

Prof Bellamy said temperature fluctuations are part of the natural process. “The argument [for man-made global warming] is going downhill. Climate change is a completely natural thing. It is based on the sun, and at the moment we are into the 24th sun cycle and there has been no sunspots for two years. The last time that happened, the Thames froze over.”

I still worry when the politicians are involved then we rely on people who cannot even tell what the weather will be like tomorrow to map the climate in 50 or a hundred years.
We had the ozone layer which healed up or disappeared – then global warming when the world temperatures have been getting colder for the last seven – whoop gone – now climate change how can we fix that?
Let get a whole load of money and a zillion university people to make wild guesses. Terrific. Copenhagen the climate will change there – loads of hot uniformed air.
