My brother-in-law is a thinker. He has a doctorate in atmospheric sciences and has spent a bunch of his adult life observing the effect of weather and man-made stuff on planet earth. So when my wife told me Ted (Hinds) had written a letter to the editor of the Atlanta Constitution on so called “Global Warming”, I thought I’d better check it out. And I’m glad I did, because at least for the parts I could understand, he’s saying (science is saying and he’s agreeing) it’s not warming that’s the potential threat, but cooling!  I apologize in advance that the pictures did not come through.  I just heard a piece on the news on this topic.  It seems Ted Turner thinks it will be 8 degrees warmer in ten years and society will be completely broken.   Cannibalism  and no food growing anywhere.  But, alas, Mr. Turner said his piece, then the commentator said Mr. Turner is a pinhead, and what could I possibly add to that?

“Modern science has recently discovered a direct link between earth’s climate and ionized molecules in the atmosphere. These ions in the atmosphere are formed as very energetic cosmic rays from deep space penetrating the atmosphere, all the way to the earth’s surface. Scientists found that these ions create condensation nuclei that lead to formation of low-level clouds, which have long been known to reflect a lot of solar energy back into space. Thus, earth’s climate is strongly influenced by an incoming rain of cosmic particles from deep outer space, and the intensity of that rain is strongly influenced by solar magnetic activity.
