Based on a running centered 13-month average, global temperatures have cooled about 0.3 Celsius since 2016. Similarly, mean monthly sunspot activity has been dropping since 2016: 52 in 2016, 26 in 2017, 12 in 2018 to 4 in agricultural year 2019 (September to February). The award-winning Australian scientist, geologist, and professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, Ian Plimer (2009) writes that climate closely correlates with solar activity accounting for 80% of the temperature trend over the last 150 years.
Global temperatures warmed in February despite extremely cold temperatures in North America, with warm temperatures in Siberia and Europe offsetting those in North America. The ten observations above are noteworthy for North America. Dr. Don J. Easterbrook, Emeritus Professor of Geology at Western Washington University dismisses the human-caused climate change theory – “Because of the absence of physical evidence that carbon dioxide causes global warming, the only argument for CO2 as the cause of warming rests entirely in computer modelling.” Similarly, he has been quoted as stating “… governments worldwide have already spent a trillion dollars fighting the wrong threat.”
