    Mine are based on the fact that I see this solar decrease in solar output lasting for about 20-30 years. I will say very little warming should be expected over the next few decades, with a chance of another warm period by later this century as I no longer believe that we will reenter a little ice age. Who can be sure? So it is up to phases of 50-75 years based on my knowledge of the way the cycles work. I don't forecast for a negative amount of cooling during this lower solar minimum phase because of the fact that the maximum was the biggest in 2,000 years and helped to warm the oceans so much that is should remain fairly stable. I've also studied the trends of the last 10-15 years, which have stablized.

    All numbers are based on being warmer or colder then today's levels.
    5 years +.05f
    10 years +.08f
    25 years +.25f
    50 years +.025
    100 years +.6

    .

    the planet might warm or it might cool. Humans will have nothing to do with it either way....

    I see a general cooling trend for the next 20 or so years. Maybe more, though I hope not.

    It's going to be warm, bordering on hot, for the next 4 months, followed by a cooling trend and eventually downright cold starting 6-7 months from now.

    Thank you. Finally someone ready to do something other than yap. Basing my estimates on what is happening at present, and the increase in GHGs expected in the next fifty years, here is what I expect.

    5 years. +1 F
    10 years + 1.5 F
    25 years + 3 F
    50 years + 5 F
    100 years + 10 F

    I really don't expect to see the fourth and fifth predictions. But I will most likely be here to heckle or be heckled on the first three.

    Man,

    It's been cold here all year long! We finally had a nice spring day two days ago and since then I've had a Standing Wave right over my house! Temps were back down into the 60's and it looks like rain tonight and tomorrow! Oh yeah I live in the DESERT! Well near it at least!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    +1 in the next 5 years from GHG's ?

    Why is it we have only had 1.4 in the last 160 plus years? What a fucking pthetic tool..:lol:

    Tell ya what. I will go out on a limb and make a prediction.....

    I predict that the climate will change. Some of it man may contribute to some very very small degree. And the rest will come from natural occurrences.... i know I know, hey what can I say im a risk taker...:lol:

    I predict we're all going to die in August... on a Tuesday. The whole world in one giant freezy burning floody blizzard-drought of oil, locusts and high fructose corn syrup with a chance of early morning fog.

    But the sunset is going to be fantastic.

    I predict the weather and temperature will oscillate (go back and forth for those chicken littles in the audience) and remain pretty much as we've seen it for the last 200 years plus or minus a degree or two.
