Back in the 70’s, scientists were concerned with global cooling, or so the story goes. When researching this hot political and scientific topic on behalf of your Commercial Cooling installation in St Louis MO near Hazelwood, we found that there were many, even at that time, who also believed in global warming. What in the world are we to believe? “A new study out of the United Kingdom predicts the Earth is about to go through a major climatic shift that could mean decades of cooler temperatures and fewer hurricanes hitting the United States.” This is opposite of many reports of global warming and, if true, supports those who believe that the global warming concept is a farce used for political and financial gain. A scare tactic, if you will. There are certainly misconceptions and discrepancies at best given the original concern of cooling that never happened in the 70’s. Of course, science is ongoing and information, data and knowledge gained can definitely change the playing field and the conclusions therein.
When researching this subject on behalf of your St Louis Heating and Cooling near Hazelwood, we found the following report to be informational, “Scientists at the University of Southampton predict that a cooling of the Atlantic Ocean could cool global temperatures a half a degree Celsius and may offer a ‘brief respite from the persistent rise of global temperatures,’ according to their study.
This cooling phase in the Atlantic is said to be capable of affecting “temperature, rainfall, drought and even the frequency of hurricanes in many regions of the world,” says Dr. Gerard McCarthy. The study’s authors based their results on ocean sensor arrays and 100 years of sea-level data. If that is indeed the case, then it makes it difficult to accept in the wake of human caused global warming. Is this actually a thing? If so, how could we expect, foresee and experience a global cooling off without the strict regulations and tighter controls of these heat trapping gasses that we are using that are supposed to be the culprits of the current and more recent past’s warming conditions? The fact remains that it is difficult to know what to believe unless you are one of the scientists in the wake of the research.
