WISN (ABC-Milwaukee) is reporting that scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee used a synchronized chaos math application and applied it to climate data over the past 100 years. They have discovered that the air and ocean systems of Earth go through periodic periods of synchronization and de-synchronization. A shift in the climate occurs each time the systems lose synchronization. They are able to explain the various heating and cooling cycles of the past century using this technique.
Their research team found that the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and temperatures have actually leveled off since 2001. This fits their theory as the Earth is currently showing the signs of system synchronization. They expect that temperatures will remain steady or even cool for the next couple of decades, until another de-synchronization occurs.
Dr. Anastasios Tsonis brings up a key point in the whole matter. “But if we don’t understand what is natural, I don’t think we can say much about what the humans are doing. So our interest is to understand — first the natural variability of climate — and then take it from there.” A scientist that uses common-sense… very impressive!
He went on to say, “So we were very excited when we realized a lot of changes in the past century from warmer to cooler and then back to warmer were all natural.” Perhaps man isn’t the main driver of climate change.
