Earth Could Be Facing Another Ice Age, Scientists Warn. Scientists studying Antarctica sea ice warn a rise in accumulation could spark the next ice age. Computer simulations show that an explosion in ice circling the frozen desert would act as a lid on the ocean and block it from exchanging carbon dioxide with the atmosphere. This is capable of causing a reverse greenhouse effect, which would ultimately cool the earth and send our planet into an ice age for the first time in over two million years. The last major ice age is believed to have ended about 2.5 million years ago during the Pleistocene era. Since then, glaciers have periodically covered the earth, but then retreated and experts have now set out to understand the process behind an ice age — how it works and what triggers it. The latest study was conducted by a team at the University of Chicago who set out to discover and understand the processes that makeup global climate.
‘As the temperature drops, less carbon is released into the atmosphere, which triggers more cooling.’ Full story Pin. Current and Possible Future Cooling. The Next Great Extinction Event Will Not Be Global Warming – It Will Be Global Cooling. By Allan M. R. MacRae, B.A.Sc., M.Eng., August 2019 Forget all those falsehoods about scary global warming, deceptions contrived by wolves to stampede the sheep. The next great extinction event will not be global warming, it will be global cooling.
Cold, not heat, is by far the greater killer of humanity. “Cold Weather Kills 20 Times As Many People As Hot Weather” By Joseph D’Aleo and Allan MacRae, September 4, 2015 However, Excess Winter Deaths are not the worst threats to humanity. “Glacial-Interglacial Cycles” The re-entry into the glacial period will be a major extinction event for humanity, possibly the end of modern civilization. “Debate on the Kyoto Accord” “CO2, Global Warming, Climate and Energy” Global Cooling Beware the Snowman Cometh. New Paper: Modern Warming Was Driven By ‘Primarily Natural’ Factors. Global Cooling Has Now Begun. By Kenneth Richard on 21. January 2019 Four climate scientists assert (1) the last ~130 years of temperature changes fit “perfectly” into statistical indices of natural variation, and (2) a long-term deep cooling of the Earth system has recently commenced. Image Source: Mao et al., 2019 An analysis published in the journal Atmospheric and Climate Sciences by 4 climate scientists reveals the 1880-2013 temperature changes fit “perfectly” (0.9 correlation) into a calculation utilizing 15,295 periodic functions of natural variation.
Mao, Tan, Chen, and Fan (2019) effectively suggest we humans do not exert fundamental control over the Earth’s climate-modulating “Ocean Stabilization Machine”. Consequently, their statistical analysis further indicates a global cooling trend has recently begun, and the overall decline in global temperature will precisely reach −0.6051˚C below the long-term average in the year 2111.

Global temperatures will come off the current plateau into a sustained and significant cooling, beginning 2017 or maybe as late as 2021. The cooling will be about 0.3 °C in the 2020s, taking the planet back to the global temperature that prevailed in the 1980s. This was signaled (though not caused) by a fall in underlying solar radiation starting in 2004, one of the three largest falls since 1610 when records started. There is a delay of one sunspot cycle, currently 13 years (2004+13 = 2017). (Please note that even if this solar hypothesis and prediction prove to be wrong, the identification of the errors in the conventional climate models and the finding that carbon dioxide is not the main cause of recent global warming are still correct.)

December 2017 Temperatures To Decrease 0.5°C-0.7°C Due To Low Sunspots, Solar Minimum Image Source: Abdussamatov, 2012 During 2017, 120 papers linking historical and modern climate change to variations in solar activity and its modulators (clouds, cosmic rays) have been published in scientific journals. It has been increasingly established that low solar activity (fewer sunspots) and increased cloud cover (as modulated by cosmic rays) are highly associated with a cooling climate. In recent years, the Earth has unfortunately left a period of very high solar activity, the Modern Grand Maximum.
Solar scientists are now increasingly forecasting a period of very low activity that will commence in the next few years (by around 2020 to 2025). Thirteen recently-published papers forecasting global cooling are listed below. Sun et al., 2017 The Sun is headed into a grand minimum, that is, a period of unusually low solar activity. Nurtaev and Nurtaev, 2017 Lüdecke and Weiss, 2017. More Indicators Point To Global Cooling, Warns German Scientist… Cooling Of “At least 1°C” By P Gosselin on 27. October 2017 Von Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle(German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) Now that the temperature maximum of the 1000-year cycle has been reached over the past two decades, a new global cooling phase can be expected — as has been the case over the past 8000 years. What can be expected over the next 400 years is a drop of at least 1°C to a level seen during the Medieval times some 500 years ago (called the LIA = Little Ice Age).
Northern hemisphere (NH) snow cover im May 2017 was greater than at any time in the past 32 years. In May 2017 sea ice area compared to a year earlier increased during a month of May like never before, since satellite measurement began in 1979. The gigantic ice sheet on Greenland was also at record level in May 2017, from the beginning of September 2016 to the end of 2017 mass balance of Greenland ice at a surplus of 700 million tonnes and has never been so high since recording began! A Swelling Volume Of Scientific Papers Now Forecasting Global Cooling In The Coming Decades.
By Kenneth Richard on 10. April 2017 During the 20th and early 21st centuries, Earth’s inhabitants have enjoyed an epoch of very high solar activity that is rare or unique in the context of the last several thousand years. The higher solar activity and warmer temperatures have allowed the planet to briefly emerge from the depths of the successive solar minima periods and “Little Ice Age” cooling that lasted from the 1300s to the early 1900s. Unfortunately, solar scientists have increasingly been forecasting a return to a solar minimum period in the coming decades, as well as the concomitant cooler temperatures.
In several newly published (2017) papers, scientists have suggested that a substantial deterioration into solar minimum conditions and global cooling may be imminent (see, for example, here and here and here). What follows is a collection of dozens of other papers that have also projected a solar minimum-induced “Little Ice Age” climate for the foreseeable future. The coming cooling: Usefully accurate climate forecasting for policy makers. The coming cooling: usefully accurate climate forecasting for policy makers. Norman J. PageHouston, Texas Dr. Norman J.

Climate forecasts are made by the IPCC using analytic numerical models called General Circulation Models (GCMs) which attempt to describe the climate dynamics using sets of differential equations. The IPCC AR5 WG1 SPM report Fig 5 shows how the models are structured and the latest IPCC estimates of Radiative Forcing by emissions and drivers (2). Fig. 1 Radiative Forcing by Emissions and Drivers Fig SPM-05 (2) Fig. 1 shows Very High Confidence for the C02 forcing.
What could be clearer? 2. Fig 4. 3. 4. Agriculture & Global Cooling. Scientists and Studies predict 'imminent global COOLING' | Principia Scientific International. Scientists predict 'mini ice age' could hit UK by 2030. A mini ice age that would freeze major rivers could hit Britain in less than two decades, according to research from universities in the UK and Russia. A mathematical model of the Sun's magnetic activity suggests temperatures could start dropping here from 2021, with the potential for winter skating on the River Thames by 2030. A team led by maths professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University built on work from Moscow to predict the movements of two magnetic waves produced by the Sun. It predicts rapidly decreasing magnetic waves for three solar cycles beginning in 2021 and lasting 33 years. Very low magnetic activity on the Sun correspond with historically documented cold periods on Earth.
Professor Zharkova claims 97% accuracy for the model which dovetails with previous mini ice ages, including the Maunder Minimum period from 1645 to 1715 when frost fairs were held on the frozen Thames. Major Danish Daily Warns: “Globe May Be On Path To Little Ice Age…Much Colder Winters…Dramatic Consequences”! Another major European media outlet is asking: Where’s the global warming? Image right: The August 7 edition of Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten featured a major 2-page article on the globe’s 15-years of missing warming and the potential solar causes and implications. Moreover, they are featuring prominent skeptic scientists who are warning of a potential little ice age and dismissing CO2 as a major climate driver.
And all of this just before the release of the IPCC’s 5AR, no less! Hat-tip: NTZ reader Arne Garbøl The August 7 print edition of the Danish Jyllands-Posten, the famous daily that published the “Muhammad caricatures“, features a full 2-page article bearing the headline: “The behavior of the sun may trigger a new little ice age” followed by the sub-headline: “Defying all predictions, the globe may be on the road towards a new little ice age with much colder winters.” So now even the once very green Danish media is now spreading the seeds of doubt. Where did all the heat go? N N o N: Russia's Pulkovo Observatory: "we could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years" Just recently, experts said that the Arctic ice cover was becoming thinner while journalists warned that the oncoming global warming would make it possible to grow oranges in the north of Siberia. Now, they say a cold spell will set in.
Apparently, this will not occur overnight, Yuri Nagovitsyn of the Pulkovo Observatory, says. "Journalists say the entire process is very simple: once solar activity declines, the temperature drops. But besides solar activity, the climate is influenced by other factors, including the lithosphere, the atmosphere, the ocean, the glaciers. Solar activity follows different cycles, including an 11-year cycle, a 90-year cycle and a 200-year cycle. "Evidently, solar activity is on the decrease. Somewhere historians are most certainly already writing the final chapters of a long overdue book, "The Rise and Fall of the Global Warming movement".
Hopefully the Russian scientists are right about the possibilities of Arctic exploration even in colder circumstances: Russian Scientists Dismiss CO2 Forcing, Predict Decades Of Cooling, Connect Cosmic Ray Flux To Climate.
A new scientific paper authored by seven scientists affiliated with the Russian Academy of Sciences was just published in the scientific journal Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences: Physics. The scientists dismiss both “greenhouse gases” and variations in the Sun’s irradiance as significant climate drivers, and instead embrace cloud cover variations — modulated by cosmic ray flux — as a dominant contributor to climate change. A concise summary: As cosmic ray flux increases, more clouds are formed on a global scale.
More global-scale cloud cover means more solar radiation is correspondingly blocked from reaching the Earth’s surface (oceans). With an increase in global cloud cover projected for the coming decades (using trend analysis), a global cooling is predicted.

Page, 2017. UW-Milwaukee Professor Predicts 50 Years of Global Cooling. [Milwaukee, Wisc...] A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor is making headlines for his work suggesting the world is entering a period of global cooling. "Now we're getting a break," Anastasios Tsonis, Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at UWM, said in an interview with the MacIver Institute.
Tsonis published a paper last March that found the world goes through periods of warming and cooling that tend to last thirty years. He says we are now in a period of cooling that could last up to fifty years. With record breaking cold temperatures around the world this winter, his research is starting to get a lot of attention. Current figures from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration confirm that temperatures have trended downward over the last ten years. "Around 2001 the climate began shifting.
He believes man could have played a role in the warming the world recently experienced. "I think both views are extreme, and the truth lies somewhere in between," Tsonis said. NatGeo: Sun Oddly Quiet – Hints at Next “Little Ice Age”? | Watts Up With That? Excerpts printed below, see full story here (h/t to David Archibald) Anne Minard for National Geographic News May 4, 2009 A prolonged lull in solar activity has astrophysicists glued to their telescopes waiting to see what the sun will do next—and how Earth’s climate might respond. The sun is the least active it’s been in decades and the dimmest in a hundred years. The lull is causing some scientists to recall the Little Ice Age, an unusual cold spell in Europe and North America, which lasted from about 1300 to 1850.
But researchers are on guard against their concerns about a new cold snap being misinterpreted. “[Global warming] skeptics tend to leap forward,” said Mike Lockwood, a solar terrestrial physicist at the University of Southampton in the U.K. He and other researchers are therefore engaged in what they call “preemptive denial” of a solar minimum leading to global cooling. Changes in the sun’s activity can affect Earth in other ways, too. Like this: Like Loading...
