How soon with they be  predicting another ice age, as they were  doing back in the '70's?  ::)

Well, since they have covered all the bases by now calling it 'Climate Change', it does not matter. In fact there have been calls, by the so-called climate experts, to inject the upper atmosphere with aerosols to cool the Earth by dimming the suns radiation:
https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/23/health/sun-dimming-aerosols-global-warming-intl-scli/index.html

But since the amount of sunlight, not its radiation, reaching the Earth has been diminishing since the 1950's, I do not see the need of this as I believe we are seeing the beginning drops of the fifth plague [Rev. 16: 5]. The Sun is Dimming: "On Friday, Dec. 15th, at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, SpaceX launched a new sensor to the International Space Station named TSIS-1. Its mission: to measure the dimming of the sun. As the sunspot cycle plunges toward its 11-year minimum, NASA satellites are tracking a decline in total solar irradiance (TSI). Across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, the sun’s output has dropped nearly 0.1% compared to the Solar Maximum of 2012-2014." https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2017/12/17/the-sun-is-dimming/

"Why the Sun seems to be 'dimming'": "We are all seeing rather less of the Sun, according to scientists who have been looking at five decades of sunlight measurements.
They have reached the disturbing conclusion that the amount of solar energy reaching the Earth's surface has been gradually falling. Comparing Israeli sunlight records from the 1950s with current ones, Dr Stanhill was astonished to find a large fall in solar radiation.
 
"There was a staggering 22% drop in the sunlight, and that really amazed me." Intrigued, he searched records from all around the world, and found the same story almost everywhere he looked.

Sunlight was falling by 10% over the USA, nearly 30% in parts of the former Soviet Union, and even by 16% in parts of the British Isles. Although the effect varied greatly from place to place, overall the decline amounted to one to two per cent globally every decade between the 1950s and the 1990s.
 
Dr Stanhill called it "global dimming", but his research, published in 2001, met a sceptical response from other scientists.
 
It was only recently, when his conclusions were confirmed by Australian scientists using a completely different method to estimate solar radiation, that climate scientists at last woke up to the reality of global dimming."

Group EXPOSES Decades of FAILED Predictions of Climate Gloom-and-Doom
[Excerpts]

Fanatical environmentalists have been predicting doomsday more than half a century—yet, the apocalypse has not arrived, and the facts do not indicate that it will arrive any time soon.

Nonetheless, today’s far-left Green New Deal advocates are warning of similar calamity unless the United States federal government spends trillions to socialize the economy and transform America’s energy sector.

A 1967 Los Angeles Times article claimed “it is already too late for the world to avoid a long period of famine.”

Stanford University Biologist Paul Ehrlich said food production would not keep up with population growth, causing “disastrous” consequences by 1975. Neither famine nor widespread starvation came to pass.

Ehrlich advanced similar solutions to those of the modern-day Democratic Party—including population control through abortion, “involuntary” birth control and sterilization. He suggested that the world begin to put “sterilizing agents” into food and water.

“We must realize that unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years, {1989}” said Ehrlich, a 37-year-old at the time.

he Boston Globe reported the prediction of James P. Lodge, a researcher at the national center for Atmospheric Research, in 1970: “Air pollution may obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the next century.”

Lodge said the cause of the coming ice age was an “increase in electric power generation” and a “consumption of oxygen” that exceeds “processes which return oxygen to the atmosphere.”

Ehrlich asserted new dire predictions in a 1970 article from the Redlands Daily Facts.

He said the “oceans will be as dead as Lake Erie” in less than 10 years.

He predicted “America will be subject to water rationing by 1974 and food rationing by 1980.”

The next year, S.I. Rasool, a NASA scientist and Columbia University professor, predicted an impending ice age if the world continued to burn fossil fuels for “five to 10” years.

By 1978, The New York Times had reported that there was “no end in sight to 30-year cooling trend.”

Ten years later, The Miami News reported that droughts would increase as the world temperature reached its hottest ever.

Greta Thunberg, like Barack Obama, dubbed 'Jesus' by left
[Excerpts]

“Church Of Sweden Announced Greta Thunberg ‘Successor’ Of Jesus,” one DailyWire.com headline just blared, above a story about how the Church of Limhamn — also known as the Church of Sweden — tweeted out last December, “Announcement! Jesus of Nazareth has now appointed one of his successors, Greta Thunberg.’”

The tweet made a resurgence of sorts recently, due no doubt to Thunberg’s speech at the United Nations — the one where she wagged her finger at the adults of the world over climate change, while self-righteously proclaiming, “How dare you, how dare you.”

Sarah Silverman Says Jesus ‘Is This Girl’ Greta Thunber
[Excerpts]

Actress-Comedian Sarah Silverman said she sees Jesus Christ in 16-year-old Swedish climate change alarmist Greta Thunberg.

“You think you will recognize Jesus when he comes back? I see him all around. He is this girl. And y’all don’t even see it.” Sarah Silverman said on Twitter, linking to an article of Thunberg appearing on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Greta Thunberg’s Trip Across the Atlantic Won’t Reduce Carbon Emissions
[Excerpts]

 Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg’s plan to cut down on carbon emissions backfired when she traveled by boat from the U.S. to Europe for a climate summit in Madrid.

Thunberg found herself stranded on the wrong side of the planet when the summit was moved from its original location in Chile to Spain.

She asked the public for help to find her a fuel-efficient method of transportation, and eventually accepted the offer of 26-year-old Nikki Henderson to make the trans-Atlantic voyage on a catamaran.

Henderson has claimed that it leaves little to no carbon-dioxide footprint when its sails are in use, instead counting on solar panels and hydro-generators for electricity. But simply getting the boat to Thunberg in time offset any reductions to her carbon footprint from air travel.

Henderson flew from Britain to the U.S. to meet Thunberg and fly her ship to Europe, producing the same amount of emissions Thunberg had hoped to save.

What’s more, Henderson’s vessel, named La Vagabonde, still produced waste. It has two diesel engines, according to the Daily Mail, and is made from petroleum products.
La Vagabonde “weighs 17,400 pounds and is made of fiberglass, or fiber-reinforced plastic. It draws auxiliary power from twin Volvo diesel engines” and costs nearly $757,000, according to Craig Rucker, president of Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, a free-market environmental organization.

Greta Thunberg Admits Eco-Activism’s True Goal Is to Dismantle ‘Racist’ Oppression
[Excerpts]

Swedish teenage eco-activist Greta Thunberg admitted in an op-ed that environmentalism isn’t just about climate change, it’s about the “colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression” that enable it.

To address climate change, we need to “change everything,” and “every one of us must participate in the climate resistance movement,” she claimed.

Action taken to combat climate change “must be powerful and wide-ranging,” she continued. “After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will.”

She urged climate activists to “dismantle” the oppressive systems that fight against them.

Thunberg then admitted that there’s little governments can do to ward off the increase in global temperatures.

“Even if countries fulfill their current emissions-reduction pledges, we are headed for a 3.2°C [5.76° Fahrenheit] increase,” she wrote.

Don’t Share This Hilarious 2020 Climate Prediction with Greta

Other than the Mueller Report, it’s hard to think of a bigger nothing-burger in 2019 than the “12 years to live” hysterics of the global warming cultists. Greta the mystical climate child – with the superpower ability to “see carbon in the atmosphere” due to her neurological disorders – traveled the globe in first-class style to lecture us about how we were letting her down. Uh huh.

Some of us are old enough to remember that the weather apocalypse has been due to murder us all since the 1970s, when it was called “global cooling.” As a matter of fact, 2020 was supposed to be one of those years when we would all be dead because of bad weather stuff. Let’s take a look at those predictions!

Back in 2004, we were all going to die of global warming by 2020. That was according to the august body of experts at the Pentagon, at the tail end of George W. Bush’s first term in office. Oddly enough, the doom and gloom report came out during a presidential election season, but whatever. It’s not like global warming is a kooky political movement. It’s science!

The Pentagon commissioned a top-secret climate change assessment from a secretive think tank called the Office of Net Assessment (ONA). The ONA is made up of former CIA, NSA, State Department and Pentagon-type spooks and it does highly respected, secret national security risk assessments.

For some reason, someone commissioned the ONA to do a global warming risk assessment, to see how big of a threat global warming would be to America by 2020. In typical fashion, the top-secret report was immediately leaked to The Guardian newspaper in London.

According to the secret Pentagon-commissioned report, global warming in 2004 was so serious and was happening so fast – so very fast – that all of the following would come to pass before the year 2020:

Our allies in Britain would be plunged into a Siberian climate
Multiple European cities would be completely under water and uninhabitable; this would happen as soon as 2005
“Mega-droughts,” famine and widespread rioting would erupt in every major city in the world
The largest mass migration of refugees in history would be under way, as starving people try to find scraps of food to survive
Mass cannibalism (of course)
Multiple countries would suddenly develop nuclear weapons to protect their own people’s dwindling food and water supplies – and they would nuke massive groups of refugees to protect themselves

The report ended with the ominous statement, “Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life. Once again, warfare would define human life.”
Heavy stuff.

When British newspapers published the BOMBSHELL climate report findings, the former head of that nation’s Meteorological Office, Sir John Houghton, stated, “If the Pentagon is sending out that sort of message, then this is an important document indeed.”

Indeed!

Keep in mind, these awesome predictions were all supposed to happen before 2020, which – last time I checked – is right now. So, pardon the rest of us for not getting especially worried when Greta the mystical climate child and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tell us that we have 12 years to live because of the same “problem.” This ain’t our first rodeo.

Just three years after the 9/11 attacks, the brightest minds from the Deep State were predicting that global warming was a bigger threat to national security than Islamic jihadis. The very smartest elites in the Deep State in 2004 were predicting that multiple cities around the world would be underwater in less than a year.

Most of the upper echelon in the Bush administration at the time, including Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and Bush himself, shrugged and ignored the secret report. And for that, they were accused of “suppressing” the information for political reasons. Bush was just trying to win reelection over John Kerry, which was more important to him than letting the world know that we’re all gonna die, man! The Pentagon had no choice but to leak the report to British newspapers… because we all know that the responsible American media would never have published the findings!

“The Pentagon is no wacko, liberal group,” declared Bob Watson, the former head of the UN panel of climate kooks. “If climate change is a threat to national security, then he [Bush] needs to act.”

We all have plenty of good reasons to despise the Bush administration for its globalist foreign policy and trade bungles. But credit where credit is due: Imagine how poor we’d all be today in 2020 if the Bush administration had listened to the Pentagon’s climate prophecies.

Al Gore Says Climate Change is ‘9/11’ as Greta Thunberg Calls for ‘Panic’
[Excerpts]

Speaking at the World Economic Forum, former Vice President Al Gore compared climate change to multiple famous battles and one famous terror attack, 9/11.

“The burden to act on the shoulders of the generation of the people alive today is a challenge to our moral imagination,” Gore said Wednesday in Davos, Switzerland, The Hill reported.

“This is Thermopylae. This is Agincourt. This is Dunkirk. This is the Battle of the Bulge,” he said, referencing the watershed moments in several historic European wars.
“This is 9/11,” he added. “We have to rise to this occasion.”

Gore, a perpetual climate doomsdayer, said climate change is “way worse” and advancing “way faster” than the world’s population realizes, CNBC reported.

He praised teenage climate-change activist Greta Thunberg, who spoke at the forum.

Gore tweeted on Wednesday that he was “struck by her potent and sobering call to action.”

Trump responded to the “perennial prophets of doom” on Tuesday, reminding the public not to be fooled.

“They are the heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune tellers,” he said. “We will never let radical socialists destroy our economy, wreck our country or eradicate our liberty.”

Thunberg openly called for “panic” in her speech, a tactic of extremists.

“Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour,” she said. “We are still telling you to panic, and to act as if you loved your children above all else.”

Biden Willing To Cut Blue-Collar Jobs to Combat Climate Change

Democratic front-runner Joe Biden admitted that he’d be willing to cut blue-collar workers’ jobs to combat climate change.

Biden was asked in the primary debate this week if he’d “be willing to sacrifice [economic] growth, even knowing potential that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy.”

And like several of the other presidential candidates on Thursday’s stage, Biden said: “The answer is yes.”

Biden said that there would still be “opportunity for those workers to transition to high-paying jobs,” even though manufacturing and oil industry jobs would be reduced under his administration’s climate-change agenda.

“We shouldn’t build another new highway in America that doesn’t have charging stations on it,” he said. “We have an opportunity to put 550,000 charging stations so that we own the electrical vehicle market, creating millions of jobs for people installing them, as well making sure that we own electric vehicle market.”

And he insisted that he could still win over displaced blue-collar workers by explaining “to those people that their skills are going to be needed for the new opportunities.”

Biden’s answer resembled the one former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gave during one of her debates with President Donald Trump. She admitted that “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business,” but said it’s necessary to combat the greatest crisis facing the U.S.: climate change.

Some of the industries Biden wants to cut provide great-paying jobs to thousands of median workers. Oil and gas drillers paid their employees more than any other energy and utility sector in 2018, according to the Wall Street Journal, and they employ thousands of workers in important swing states the Democrats need to win in 2020.

BERNIE: Workers in Energy Sector Must Be Ready to ‘Change Jobs’

In a state that Hillary Clinton carried by only 136,386 votes four years ago, current Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders may have just tossed out 91,000.

Sanders told a local Denver station that those working in the fossil-fuels energy sector, including oil and natural gas, should be ready to transition if he is elected president.

He claimed, however, that their career changes would somehow be subsidized at taxpayer expense, without offering specific proposals as to how he would achieve this while also investing trillions in alternative energy and other expensive promises.

“Those workers are not my enemy,” Sanders claimed. “It’s not their fault that climate change is threatening the planet.”

He promised to spend billions more to provide them with five years of income, job retraining, education and health care.

“We’re not going to push them aside,” Sanders said. “We’re going to protect them.”

Sanders also struggled to provided strong defenses of other policies, including his Medicare for All proposal, which two prominent Colorado Democrats—Sen. Michael Bennet and former Gov. John Hickenlooper—have both come out against.

Both flirted with presidential runs themselves, and Hickenlooper is currently running to unseat Republican Sen. Cory Gardner.

“You’ve given me the names of two people who don’t support it,” Sanders said. “You haven’t told me about the polling that says that the overwhelming majority of Democrats do support it. … This is a system that cannot be defended.”

Many fear that Sanders’s uncompromising, hardline stance not only could cost Democrats a shot at the Oval Office, but also could weaken their hand in efforts to reclaim the Senate and defend their House majority.

But Sanders shrugged off questions about his electability and dodged concerns over whether his risky proposals put him outside the mainstream.

“Well, then you’re talking about obviously a very, very dangerous moment in American history,” Sanders said. “I believe that we are going to defeat President Trump and I believe there is an excellent chance that I will be the next President of the United States.”

Just for the record, "global warming" has just produced the worst April snowstorm I've ever seen in the 34 years I've been here.  We got a foot of heavy, wet snow last night, and over 200,000 customers are without power.  Trees are down across wires everywhere.  Parked at the end of the driveway or I would have never gotten out.  Had to negotiate an obstacle course on our road to get from my house to the main highway to go to work.  Running off generator right now.  Even at work we lost power twice today, for a total of about 3 hours.  That town almost never loses power.  Even during the infamous ice storm of '98, we never lost power, even while many folks lost it for 2 weeks.
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10

Climate Activist Recants His Alarmism, Then is Victimized by Cancel Culture

(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) After an opinion piece it published Sunday drew the wrath of militant eco-warriors, Forbes appeared to have doubled back on it only a day later, pulling from its online platform the shocking apology by reformed climate-alarmist Michael Shellenberger.

Shellenberger is a devout environmentalist and political progressive, and he’s blowing the whistle on the climate change movement starting with a simple message: Sorry.

“On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years,” he wrote in a Sunday Forbes op-ed.

As of Monday, however, only a faint trace of the original article was visible on the site.

A tersely-worded editor’s note opaquely explained to the unobservant: “This page is no longer active. We regret any inconvenience.”

However, a version of the original page was archived prior to its removal.

Now, the shocking admissions in the piece carry the weight of even more intrigue. A noted climate-change skeptic group, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, asked the burning question: “Who pressured Forbes to kill the story and why did they cave?”

According to the original article, Shellenberger believes climate change is real but not nearly the problem his political and environmental colleagues have been threatening.

“Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem,” he said.

Climate skeptics—and those weary of political charlatans who use the issue to profit and amass power—may have long since arrived at the same conclusion. But for Shellenberger to undermine climate alarmism from within is a potential game-changer.

Few people on the environmental left can match his credentials.

Shellenberger has been a climate activist for two decades, and his roots in the modern environmental movement date back to the 1980s.

He was once named Time magazine’s “Hero of the Environment” and has written for the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, and other major publications.

He is a “Green Book” award winner, and his TED talks have been viewed over 5 million times. He founded the influential group Environmental Progress.

Shellenberger even ran for governor of California in 2018 but lost in the Democrat primary to the state’s progressive incumbent, Gov. Gavin Newsom.

If anyone had an incentive to capitalize on the climate change status quo, it’s Shellenberger. But he’s coming clean instead.

“I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public,” he said.

“Some people will, when they read this imagine that I’m some right-wing anti-environmentalist. I’m not,” he added, noting that an honest rendering of facts obtained from even the most pro-climate change organizations like the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change proves that climate-change alarmism—as presented by the mainstream media and left-leaning politicians—is fraudulent.

Shellenberger listed a dozen facts that debunk the global climate-change lobby’s most dire assertions.

All of the evidence he cites is pulled from leading pro-climate change scientific organizations, such as the IPCC, the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization, and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction,” he explained. The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world,” he continued.

He further noted: Climate change is not making natural disasters worse; fires have declined 25 percent around the world since 2003; the amount of land we use for meat—humankind’s biggest use of land—has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska; air pollution and carbon emissions have been declining in rich nations for 50 years.

“I know that the above facts will sound like ‘climate denialism’ to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism,” he said.

Why would someone of Shellenberger’s stature turn on everything he’d worked for, including the high-powered connections and lucrative opportunities that come with exploiting the issue?

By his own admission, Shellenberger helped persuade the Obama administration to spend $90 billion of taxpayer money on wasteful renewable energy initiatives, much of it going to progressive allies in California.

“Until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an ‘existential’ threat to human civilization, and called it a ‘crisis,’” he said.

“But mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding,” he continued.

The first few times he defended scientific data that contradicted the politically engineered climate movement, Shellenberger said he was met with swift consequences.

Then, he stood by while the Obama White House and the news media destroyed honest scientists, some of whom were his friends.

“But then, last year, things spiraled out of control,” he said.“Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez said, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed, ‘Climate Change Kills Children,’” he added.

Not only did the radically false statements signify the cravenness of the left-wing climate-change movement, but the claims were purposely meant to scare people into supporting socialist takeovers of sovereign economies. And none of it can be openly challenged without being labeled a climate denier.

In past articles, Shellengberger challenged Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the socialist Green New Deal, saying the plan “would raise energy prices, slow economic growth, and reduce wages.”

“Why did anyone ever imagine it to be ‘progressive’?” he wrote.

Other articles ask why climate change alarmists are so opposed to actually solving the climate change issued.

“Nuclear energy and natural gas have reduced carbon emissions far more than solar and wind,” he wrote. “Why, then, are the people so apocalyptic about climate change so opposed to them?”

An article from December explains why climate scaremongering is so harmful, especially for children, and points to perhaps the most ironic consequence of the entire climate fraud: that it hurts the environment.

Shellenberger closed his Sunday op-ed with a final mea culpa.

“If you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll agree that it’s perhaps not as strange as it seems that a lifelong environmentalist, progressive, and climate activist felt the need to speak out against the alarmism.”

“I further hope that you’ll accept my apology,” he said.
