Earth is not warmer but colder

"The earth is not warming, but cooling off right." That statment by climatologist Latif Mojib of the German "Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences" in Kiel. The scientist revealed his findings at the World Climate Conference in Geneva.

"I am not one of the Skeptics," insisted Mojib Latif of the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at Kiel University. "However, we have to ask the nasty questions ourselves or other people will do it."

The confusion caused Latif thus, could not come at a worse time. The climate is the meteorological organization of the United Nations convened to arrive at measures that citizens of the world should help the effects of climate change challenges. Scientists must now realize that their predictions and analysis are not very accurate.

Yet Latif also cautious in his statements. He is no skeptic, he says, referring to the theories of colleagues for dramatic climate change warn: "But we scientists must now be uncomfortable to ask questions, others do differently that later."

The cooling of the earth according Latif caused by cyclical changes in currents of the North Atlantic Ocean. The observed warming in recent years, according to Latif is a result of what scientists call the North Atlantic oscillation. But nobody, not even Latif, can say to what extent nature is responsible, and how much mankind contributes to the climate change.

But scientists have their theories of global warming have to examine in depth, according to Latif is taking place. For example, recent measurements of the polar caps melt significantly less this year than in 2007 and 2008.
