From Stimme Russlands, Die Welt vor einer Eiszeit: The World On The Verge Of An Ice Age (English)
The Russian scientist Vladimir Bashkin disagrees completely with claim that with the onset of the Industrial Revolution, the earth is necessarily warming because of some anthropogenic influence. He does not believe that humans magnify CO2 emmissions which supposedly cause the “Greenhouse Effect.”
Instead, Bashkin finds that climate change is cyclical. Together with his colleague, Rauf Galiullin, from the Institute of Fundamental Problems of Biology, Russian Academy of Sciences, he proves that the current warming trend was caused by a reverberation from planet ending a “little ice age” and entering into a period of a new ice age. The cooling results from solar activity – the most potent force that affects the earth’s climate.
From Bashkin’s Report:
The Little Ice Age occurs with a periodicity of 500 years. The preceding has been middle of the last millennium, as in England, the Thames froze, ran the Dutch skates and foreigners in Russia shocked when they saw the trees burst from freezing. The periods of cooling and warming followed in succession with a distance of 30 to 40 years. In Russia, for example, there was a warming in the 30s of the last century, as the shipping on the Northern Sea Route was possible, then a cooling followed during the war years, then a warming of the 70s came, etc. The recent warming period was on the threshold of millennium to the end.
The scientific research makes the climate of past geological eras some doubt on the motivation of the requirements of the Kyoto Protocol. The protocol restricts the emissions of greenhouse gases and leave a tradable quotas for these emissions. The emission of carbon dioxide is a normal natural process and not an exclusive result of human activity.
The greenhouse effect, which is connected to the anthropogenic factor, which are four to five percent of the natural emission. The eruption of a volcano is a lot more. A real contribution to the greenhouse effect is the ordinary steam. Thanks to God that no one comes to the idea, it must also regulate.
In the ocean sixty times as much carbon dioxide as is contained in the air. With a temperature rise on the planet, it begins to escape energetic. Thus, an increase in CO2 in the atmosphere goes Nivaus ahead rather than a warming, but rather follows this.
A global warming, about which so much is talked about is not so much a scientific problem rather than a marketing gimmick. If a warming had occurred, explained the background of the Russian scientists such reasoning, so diminish the demand for traditional fuels (coal, oil and gas) and therefore should decrease the price of these energy-economic resource. But that was already not a science but a policy of the first water. We expect, however, not global warming, but global cooling, says the Russian scientist. But one must not be afraid before cooling, it would develop gradually and only in the middle of the 21st Century are felt.
