“Mini Ice Age Is Here To Stay,” Says Astrophysicist

Mini Ice Age

 

 

British Physicist and weatheraction.comeatheraction.com front man, Piers Corbyn, issues a stark rebuke to climate alarmists who claim the 18-year-old pause in global warming won’t last.  “The mini ice age is here to stay!”

Illustrating his analysis of the data with deft graphwork Corbyn shows that in April 2017 temperatures in both the northern and southern hemispheres plunged dramatically last month. “The mini ice age is in a new phase and is here to stay for at least 20 years.”

Corbyn is not alone among respected international scientists who foresee a new era of ice and cold with inherent damaging impacts on world agriculture, disease and political fallout.  The really obvious evidence is the dramatic absence of any sun spots in recent weeks.

The daily Berliner Kurier reports solar physicists at the ultra-warmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) are warning that Europe may be facing “a mini ice age” due to a possible protracted solar minimum.

The German-language Pravda TV site here published an article warning of an impending ice age. The article cites Yale scientist Wei Liu and a recent paper he published on the “overlooked possibility of a collapsed Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation“. Should the ocean heat conveyor collapse, then there would be “a prominent cooling over the northern North Atlantic and neighboring areas, sea ice increases over the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian seas and to the south of Greenland.”

Russian Astrophysicist Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov, who is the head of space research for the Pulkovo Observatory at the Russian Academy of Sciences, in a new study, claims the “new Little Ice Age” started at the end of 2015 due to low solar activity, kicking off decades of “deep cooling” in the latter half of the 21st Century.

It isn’t just a lack of sunspots that is causing scientists to worry. Earth is now in a period of increasing incoming galactic cosmic rays – these being a main factor for major volcanic activity. This usually causes an increase global cloud coverage which blocks more sunlight and promotes further cooling.  If it becomes colder along with more clouds then the risk is also of greater snow coverage. Such conditions were last seen during the Little Ice Age that ended around 1850, which coincided with the start of the Industrial Revolution. Until the thaw it was so cold England’s Thames river froze at least 23 separate times, with ice skating and “frost fairs” the norm.

The Pravda report summarizes Liu’s paper as follows:

CO2 has nothing to do with it, rather the influence of the sun is the dominant factor: less sunspots (Climate: solar physicists project global cooling (video)), weakening of the earth’s magnetic field, impact on the jet stream are decisive factors that can quickly lead our climate into an ice age (Scientists: Consensus 2016: the climate models are useless (Video)).”

Since the late 19th and through the 20th century  Earth has 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 allowed the planet to briefly emerge from the colder periods of successive solar minima and “Little Ice Age”- an age of cooling that lasted from the 1300s to the Victorian era.

  1. Hi
    What is the current situation regarding the prediction of a mini ice age – as we face yet more record breaking warm weather. Possibly also another ridiculously warm and wet autumn. Why do these predictions never appear in newspaper that pander less to sensationalism like The Guardian or Telegraph?

    I do not have access to the data that you have but have seen no evidence to support anything other than ongoing warming and the winters since 2000 (except a couple like 2010) have been consistently warm and bland.

    • As an introduction to a short answer I recommend reading my article Climate Change Explained (on the right hand side bar of by site)

      https://abruptearthchanges.com/2017/07/30/climate-change/

      If a climate disturbance is caused by increased cosmic rays influx (for instance due to a grand solar minimum) then irregullar precipitation events and general climate chaos kick off such a period, the cooling usually followes later. 

       As far as sensationalism is concerned, the trillion dollar machine of antropogenic climate change agenda is certainly leading (the arctic will be ice free by 2013 and so on). But true enough, the opposition who argues for straig foreward cooling is using dramatic language, too. For the best compilation of solid prove of temperature data manipulation, I recommend the YouTube Channal of Adapt 2030. Warm records and droughts are on the increase, but the numerous cold anomalies and records are neglected or covered up. At any rate, extreme global climate catastrophes as in the 14th Century (sea my E-book Black Death and Abrupt Earth Changes 14th Century) have happened and one day things will change abruptly again.
