Dr Norman Page- an oil consultant with a PhD, in Geology at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. [so many geologists are turning up a new category has been added just for them]. Why are fossil fuel geologists so sceptical?
Has guest post with WUWT
The peak is broad with only a little cooling to date but this will likely accelerate from 2015 or 2016 on reflecting the beginning of the increase in the cosmic ray count already seen from 2004 – 2009 in Fig 6. The cooling will last until 2030- 2040. Often the signal for a climate direction change is a see saw effect between Arctic and Antarctic sea ice. The Arctic is still reflecting the peak in the warming trend with low summer ice values.
The first indication of a cooling event is however the increase in Antarctic sea ice which has already occurred.
The article is round up of – the ice-age is coming- the Sun is less active [but was really active in the 90s]- cosmic rays- blah blah. And this despite another Geologist saying much the same thing just 3 months earlier on WUWT when David Archibald asks the question- When will it get cooler?
Norman’s predictions of impending cold are also mentioned at Climate Depot [June 2010] advising-
There is no threat from the burning of fossil fuels for the forseeable future, indeed an increase in CO2 would positively help in feeding the burgeoning population.
For the next 20 years climate science should be devoted to improving and enlarging the entire climate data base in particular with regard to solar data of all kinds. No climate model runs should be made until 2025 by which time the inputs will hopefully be more relevant to the real world.
The quick answer why it is not cooling can be found here.

Norman Page is pretty low down with only 2 articles, but this page will be here in 3- 4 -5 years time just to see those predictions come true.
