Solar Cycles, Not CO2, Determine Climate by Zbigniew Jaworowski, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc. The author’s colleague, K. Cielecki, excavating an ice sample from a shaft in the middle of an ice cliff at Jatunjampa Glacier in the Peruvian Andes. The black lines reflect a summer deposition of dust on top of particular annual ice layers. The black layer near the top of Cielecki’s head was formed after the 1963 eruption of volcano Gunung Agung in Bali, Indonesia, causing the highest volcanic dust veil in the atmosphere since 1895. Some of the other black lines reflect local eruptions. 52

Get out the fur coats, because global cooling is coming! A world-renowned atmospheric scientist and mountaineer, who has excavated ice out of 17 glaciers on 6 continents in his 50-year career, tells how we know.


ince the 1980s, many climatologists have claimed that ceptible, but there would be a drastic and very noticeable human activity has caused the near-surface air regression in the economy.

By 2100, they claim, the would experience in the year 2094, would be postponed until atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration will double, the year 2100. Thus, the Kyoto Protocol buys the world six causing the average temperature on Earth to increase by years.7 1.9°C to 5.2°C, and in the polar region by more than 12°C.
