It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

NASA Says Earth Now Entering Long-Term Cooling Stage

NASA Astronaut and Geophysicist Warns of Coming Ice Age

Russian Astronomer Echoes Warning

British and Canadian Scientists Also Sound The Alarm

And Again, We Have More Evidence Building

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT:  Now all of the REAL weather experts, REAL climate specialists, and REAL astronomical scientists are starting to agree, the whole "global warming climate change" propaganda was a crock! The exact opposite is happening, the earth is cooling, and it will continue to cool, and guess what? It has nothing to do with us!

The reason why the earth is cooling is because every other planet in the solar system is cooling as well. The sun is just now coming out of it's ten-year cycle solar low, and the reduced sunspot activity over the last few years has brought global temperatures down on every planet in the system. This solar system trend will continue for at least the next two or three years.

For earth however, we're about to get a little more of a deep freeze. The reason? Earth's solar orbit changes ever so slightly, just by a few degrees, over the course of a few hundred years. For the last 250 to 300 years, the earth's orbit has been drifting in a direction that angles more of the planet's surface directly toward the sun. However, over the last decade that has started to change, and the orbit is now drifting back into a direction that angles more of the planet's surface away from the sun, so that more solar rays escape off the curvature of the earth's surface. The result of this will inevitably be more global cooling, in effect, another mini-ice-age, similar to the one experienced in the late middle ages through the early 1800s. Of course this trend will likely take a couple centuries to play out, and we shouldn't expect any massive glaciers to invade our northern cities - not yet anyway - not for a long time. Rather, what we should expect are some colder and harsher winters, with only occasional exceptions, for the remainder of our natural lives.

Guess what? We had nothing to do with this. We didn't cause it, and the human race is not to blame. It all has to do with the orbit of our planet around the sun. It's cyclic, and it's been going on for a VERY LONG TIME. If anything, our activity burning fossil fuels on the planet might actually help warm things up a bit, that is, if the global warming science is correct, which all the latest evidence seems to suggest it's not. So man-made greenhouse gasses probably won't make much of a noticeable impact. Forces of stellar proportions are at play here - literally! We can't change the temperature on our planet anymore than we can alter it's orbit around the sun. Sorry. I hate to burst your bubble, but we really aren't as powerful as our politicians would have us believe. So dress warmly, and invest in a good heating system for your home, because odds are, you're gonna need it!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
