It seems that nearly everyone is jumping on the “global warming/climate change” bandwagon these days.
But there are still a few skeptics out there.
One of them is Art Douglas, weather consultant and professor emeritus of atmospheric sciences at Creighton University. During his presentation at the recent CattleFax Market Outlook session in Tampa, Florida, Douglas talked about the “tremendous recovery in the amount of sea ice in the Arctic” that he has observed in recent months. He also points to reduced sunspot activity, which Douglas believes could actually lead to “global cooling”.
“It’s going to take us probably about two to three decades to really start seeing global cooling associated with this decrease in sunspots,” Douglas said.
“What this really tells us is we’re looking at regional climate anomalies,” Douglas continued “We’re not looking at human-induced.”
Douglas’ comments drew applause from many of the cattlemen in attendance.
