Widespread Global COOLING!!!!

Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming
Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded.
China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice,

record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.
No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence
has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global
temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have
released updated data. All show that over the past year, global
temperatures have dropped precipitously.
A compiled list of all the sources can be seen here. The
total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large
enough to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100
years. All in one year's time. For all four sources, it's the single
fastest temperature change ever recorded, either up or down.
Scientists quoted in a [url=http://www.dailytech.com/Solar Activity Diminishes Researchers Predict Another Ice Age/article10630.htm]past DailyTech article[/url]
link the cooling to reduced solar activity which they claim is a much
larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases. The
dramatic cooling seen in just 12 months time seems to bear that out.
While the data doesn't itself disprove that carbon dioxide is acting to
warm the planet, it does demonstrate clearly that more powerful factors
are now cooling it.
Let's hope those factors stop fast. Cold is more damaging than heat.
The mean temperature of the planet is about 54 degrees. Humans -- and
most of the crops and animals we depend on -- prefer a temperature
closer to 70.

Historically, the warm periods such as the Medieval Climate Optimum
were beneficial for civilization. Corresponding cooling events such as
the Little Ice Age, though, were uniformly bad news.

Update 2/27: The graph for HadCRUT (above),
as well as the linked graphs for RSS and UAH are generated
month-to-month; the temperature declines span a full 12 months of
data. The linked GISS graph was graphed for the months of
January only, due to a limitation in the plotting program. Anthony
Watts, who kindly provided the graphics, otherwise has no connection
with the column. The views and comments are those of the author only.
