More Predictions for a New “Little Ice Age”: Winter is Coming

Do Not Fear the Warming: Fear the Killing Cold

British scientist Valentina Zharkova and her team at Northumbria University in the United Kingdom… predicted that a coming periodic reduction in the sun’s radiation will soon lead to major global cooling.

A number of courageous and independent-minded scientists are learning that cycles of solar activity working through variable cloud cover and cyclic ocean temperature oscillations, are far more important drivers of global climate activity than any trace gases in the planetary atmosphere.

We know from history that natural cycles and negative feedbacks predominate in climate. As the climate pendulum swings, we should be particularly concerned about any possibility of extended cooling over the temperate breadbaskets of Earth.

Zharkova found that solar activity is driven by two magnetic waves from within the sun that can either dampen or amplify solar activity. Solar activity is believed to play a role in warming and cooling average global temperature.

Zharkova’s team incorporated solar data into predictive models and found that the sun is heading into a period of low solar activity similar to the Maunder Minimum of the late 1600s. During this time, scientists believe low solar activity contributed to cooler average global temperature.

During the cyclic periods of global warming, growing seasons are longer and civilisation prospers from the excess production of food and goods. For a time, the human carrying capacity of the planet increases, allowing for significantly larger human populations. But beware when climate cycles turn, and the long winter returns to Terra. Growing seasons shorten — and in some years disappear entirely. If history is any guide, famine, disease, poverty, hardship, and the wholesale death of human surplus populations follow.

Among those scientists who are actively exploring the solar-climate connection there are different views as to how the relationship between sun and earth is mediated. Names to look out for in research papers include Willie Soon, Sallie Balliunas, Eigil Friis-Christensen, Henrik Svensmark, Nir Shaviv and Jan Veizer. An excellent introduction to the topic is ‘The Manic Sun’ by Nigel Calder, who recently also wrote, with Henrik Svensmark, ‘The Chilling Stars’. Also worth looking at is Willie Soon’s short book on Edward Maunder. __ http://www.greatglobalwarmingswindle.com/thesun.html

In the politically influenced world of “climate change,” independent, sceptically minded scientists who refuse to join the herd and follow the big money flows of influence, are few and far between. But they are well worth reading for their refreshing honesty.

What happens during a “Little Ice Age?” Food-producing land becomes scarcer, food-growing seasons become shorter, and the world becomes a much more arid and less hospitable place. Think food shortages and the social unrest that follows. __ Source

It is easy to understand why so many ancient cultures worshipped the sun god. Natural cycles of solar activity determine how long farmers will have to grow and harvest the crop each year. During periods of extended cold, when the temperate breadbaskets experience years “without a summer,” starvation and accompanying poverty and plague become appallingly commonplace.

We are between periods of strong glaciation, and contrary to what self-interested “climate scientists” seem to be saying through media mouthpieces, much of the modern holocene period was significantly warmer than what we are experiencing currently.

Why would “scientists” lie about something so important? Follow the money. Politically directed spending on research is dwarfed by ideology-driven government spending based upon the results of this “research.” But how much of the flood of politically funded research can be trusted or replicated? According to watchdog groups cited in the “follow the money” link above, perhaps 30% or less. Science is in big trouble.

Some trillions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars have been spent to combat global warming over the last three decades. __ Source

Follow the money indeed. $Trillions are being transferred and redistributed on the basis of apocalyptic climate predictions of warming. If only we could look forward to more warming and longer growing seasons in the temperate breadbaskets, rather than a long-lasting cold that brings starvation, disease, poverty, and war in its wake.

    You’ll want to check out Archbald’s “Twilight of Abundance”. which also discusses the impact of global colling, mostly on agricultural production.
