Researcher Predicts Cooler Climate in Northern Hemisphere From 2015

A Japanese scientist who analyzed ocean temperatures stretching back more than five decades has predicted that the climate in the Northern Hemisphere may enter a cooling period around 2015.

Mototaka Nakamura, a senior scientist at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, analyzed surface temperatures of the Greenland Sea from 1957 to the present and how they affect climate change.

He said Greenland Sea temperatures could serve as a leading indicator of cooling and warming cycles in North Atlantic waters, which are believed to alternate on about 70-year cycles.

He added that the waters in the Greenland Sea appear to be near the tail end of a warming cycle.

The climate in the Northern Hemisphere had cooled from the 1940s to the 1970s, but began a warming trend in the 1980s.

Nakamura said when predicting climate change, the effects of global warming caused by man-made greenhouse gases also need to be taken into consideration.

His findings were published in a U.S. science journal on June 28.

    I have considered mans effects they are trivial. If the AMO turns cold look out below as the trap door opens for temperatures drop like a rock
