You mean this Glazier Bay? Glazier/glasier whatever https://www.usefilm.com/image/299727.html

When I was up in the Jasper Park area there is a glazier called Angel Glasier.
At the base of the glazier there are rows of rocks pushed out and on each row the scientist have put dated markers. Each marker averaged around 350 to 500 years apart. Thursday, July 28, 2005 -- Angel Glacier and Mount Edith Cavell

So, that gives me the impression that there are cycles to the weather and I'm just suggesting that MAYBE we maybe starting into a cold trend vs. warming trend. One extreme usually leads to another.

Global cooling?

The latest evidence is pointing toward an end to present warming trend,replaced by a 20 to 30 yr. cooling period, due to changes in THC.See;Unstoppable Global Warming & Michael Crichton or google;" roman warming"

As someone who regularly works with research scientists, and is married to an authority in a field, I personally am extremely satisfied with the state of the evidence and consensus of the field of climatology regarding global warming. In fact, it's amusing how many people on this forum wouldn't think of sailing without weatherfax, but don't believe global warming.

The recent lack of sunspot activity is apparently related to cooler weather,as sunspots keep low level cloud from forming.Last couple of cooler summers with more cloud and rain would seem to back this up.?

That is ridiculous. Sunspots are slightly cooler 'storms' on the sun's surface, correlated with increased radiation in certain spectrums and reduced radiation in other spectrums. This would have no direct effect on cloud formation on Earth.

2008 was, like 7 of the previous 10 years, on course to be the warmest ever on record
[1] until the development of a La Niña in April[2].

The image depicts the results of the COBE mission, which measured energy responses within the universe. The graph displays the results found vs. the theoretical results based on models of how the universe came into being. The results matched 99.9%+, a dramatic example of a large, complex theory model being proven decades later by scientific observation.

This comic explains my opinion better:




Please keep in mind that XKCD is very very cynical. As I am.
