Global Cooling Poses Bigger Threat than Global Warming, Author Says

Author Shigenori Maruyama, in his newly published book Approaching Crisis of Global Cooling and the Limits to Growth, stresses that the atmospheric temperature will become cold instead of warm in the near future, unlike what most academic societies and governments force citizens to believe. This book, translated by Prof. Masaru Yoshida and Vernon Spencer to English from the original Japanese version, was written by the author out of his belief of social responsibility as the scientist.

“The current trend in the world is to blame carbon dioxide for global warming and does not allow questioning such a conclusion or giving contrary opinions,” Maruyama shares. “I have found it very dangerous that the world is forced to dance to such a small theme, in spite of the existence of more serious problems that we have to struggle with spending time and money collaborating together.”

According to the author, the atmospheric temperature of the earth will surely become cold, because most of major controlling factors of the atmospheric temperature, i.e., solar activity, cosmic rays, and geomagnetism are changing in a way to the cooling. He says that the effect of carbon dioxide gas should not be too much evaluated.

Maruyama states that by basing on the past global climatic change, one can predict to some extent the future climatic change. “Global cooling will come in 2035, and food production will decrease, the population is expanding and the shortage of food and drain of natural resources result in the limits to the growth of the human society. All these conditions together corroborate to bring a severe crisis to human beings in near future,” he adds.

Appealing to all readers who seriously consider the future of the human race, Approaching Crisis of Global Cooling and the Limits to Growth suggests measures on how to overcome the world’s approaching predicament.
