Are we heading in the right direction?

The alarmists are trying to scare us by saying the planet, in the next 90 years, might get 2-4ºC warmer. (During the last 150 or so years, coming out of the Little Ice Age the planet has warmed less than 1º.)

Is it better to be warmer? Or to be colder?

Generally speaking NCTCS blogger would say warmer is better.

NCTCS blogger took the photo at right on Saturday November 3. It is a section of the Great Wall of China and the temperature that day reached around 15ºC.

The next day, blizzard conditions hit that area of Northern China. Tragically three Japanese tourists perished on a section of the Great Wall on the Sunday.

Three Japan tourists die in Great Wall storm

THREE elderly Japanese tourists died after being trapped in sudden heavy snowstorms during a visit to the Great Wall of China, officials in Beijing and Tokyo said on Monday.

The bodies of two women, aged 62 and 68, were found on Sunday evening while the body of a 76-year-old man was retrieved on Monday afternoon.

More than 2,500 people in England and Wales are likely to perish from cold in the week leading up to Christmas, experts said today.
The forecast from the Faculty of Public Health and Met Office comes amid renewed concern over the plight of the poor and vulnerable during cold snaps.
Each winter, a larger proportion of Britons die because of unseasonable cold weather than in either Finland or Russia.

An international team including scientists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) has published a reconstruction of the climate in northern Europe over the last 2,000 years based on the information provided by tree-rings. The team was led by Professor Jan Esper

Climate in northern Europe reconstructed for the past 2,000 years: Cooling trend calculated precisely for the first time 

"We found that previous estimates of historical temperatures during the Roman era and the Middle Ages were too low," says Esper. "Such findings are also significant with regard to climate policy, as they will influence the way today's climate changes are seen in context of historical warm periods." 

The new study has been published in the journal Nature Climate Change

 "This figure we calculated may not seem particularly significant," says Esper. "However, it is also not negligible when compared to global warming, which up to now has been less than 1°C. Our results suggest that the large-scale climate reconstruction shown by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) likely underestimate this long-term cooling trend over the past few millennia."
The Alarmists should be preparing us for colder times ahead.

C.I.A. Closes Its Climate Change Office

Walking away from the hoax?

 Does this mean that they have done some examination and discovered that man-made global warming is a scam and the greatest hoax inflicted on mankind?

The Central Intelligence Agency has disbanded its Center on Climate Change and National Security, a unit formed in 2009 to monitor the interplay between a warming planet and intelligence and security challenges.

Senator John Barrasso, Republican of Wyoming, has been the most vocal critic of the C.I.A.’s climate change work. He welcomed the closing of its office.
“Closing the Climate Change Center at the C.I.A. was the right decision,” Mr. Barrasso said in a statement. “I offered an amendment on the Senate floor to eliminate the center because it was unnecessary, wasteful and totally out of place. It’s critically important for the C.I.A. to focus its resources on preventing terrorism and keeping Americans safe.”
