Forget global warming, get ready for global cooling

There continues to be a growing body of research and a growing number of climatologists pointing to the very real possibility that earth is currently entering into a 25-50 year cooling period.  And keep this in mind, cold is a much bigger killer than warm.  For example, it's common for winter deaths in Europe to exceed summer deaths (cold vs. warm) by a factor of five.  All things equal, you'd rather have warming temps than cooling temps.  From an article posted at the Global Warming Policy Foundation:
Some eminent scientists now believe the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century – a process that would expose computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming as dangerously misleading.
The disclosure comes 11 months after The Mail on Sunday triggered intense political and scientific debate by revealing that global warming has ‘paused’ since the beginning of 1997 – an event that the computer models used by climate experts failed to predict.
