Researchers Predict That A “Mini Ice Age” Is Coming Very Soon

A few months ago, NASA published a study showing that Antarctica is actually gaining more ice than it is losing. They made the announcement after using satellites to examine the heights of the region’s ice sheet.

The findings contradict the prevailing theory that Antarctica has actually been shrinking, however.

The paper is titled “Mass gains of the Antarctic ice sheet exceed losses” and was published in the Journal of Glaciology.

The authors of this study are from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and the cause of this ice gain isn’t entirely known, but a number of theories are mentioned in the paper.

 

It is worth mentioning, however that NASA was blasted by dozens of their own scientists regarding their global warming stance, even though a number of the world’s top scientists have questioned just how much an impact greenhouse gases have on climate change. You can read more about that here. (source)

Perhaps there are other factors contributing to climate change?

Just a few years ago, Antarctic ice extent had reached an all-time high. (source)(source)

There are many theories as to why this is so, and one of them includes the effects of supposed global warming, but not everyone agrees. That’s a completely separate topic, however, and you can learn more about it in the articles linked at the end of this article.

When it comes to climate change, a lot of emphasis is put on human activity, and rightfully so, as our ways here need to change. Perhaps in our fervour to discover our own culpability in this shift, however, we missed a few things along the way?

What about the natural cycles of climate change Earth experiences, and has experienced? It’s a scientific fact that fluctuations in the solar cycle impact earth’s global temperature, as do other massive bodies flying in and around our solar system.

The most recent research to examine this topic comes from the National Astronomy Meeting in Wales, where Valentina Zharkova, a mathematics professor from Northumbria University (UK), presented a model that can predict what solar cycles will look like far more accurately than was previously possible.

She states that the model can predict their influence with an accuracy of 97 percent, and says it is showing that Earth is heading for a “mini ice age” in approximately fifteen years.

According to the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS):

A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone.

Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the ‘mini ice age’ that began in 1645. (source)

Zharkova and her team came up with the model using a method called “principal component analysis” of the magnetic field observations, from the Wilcox Solar Observatory in California.

Looking forward to the next few solar cycles, her model predicts that from 2030 to 2040 there will be cause for a significant reduction in solar activity, which again, will lead to a mini ice age.

According to Zharkova:

In cycle 26, the two waves exactly mirror each other – peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the Sun. Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other.

We predict that this will lead to the properties of a “Maunder minimum.” Effectively, when the waves are approximately in phase, they can show strong interaction, or resonance, and we have strong solar activity.

When they are out of phase, we have solar minimums. When there is full phase separation, we have the conditions last seen during the Maunder minimum, 370 years ago. (source)

Pretty interesting to think about it, isn’t it? With so much attention being paid to the warming of our planet, it would be quite a shocker to suddenly enter into an ice age.

    this would be comforting to believe-but, if the measurement of the global temperature for 2015 are correct-it was the HOTTEST year recorded since 1880-that does not sound like a recipie for more ice.

    • Daniel F. Melton

      When the data are edited and homogenized (and ALWAYS rounded up) the people doing the figuring can always arrive at the results they have been ordered to achieve.

    • Frank Energy

      They are jiggering the data. 2015 was hot, it was El Nino year. Be alert, don’t have your mind made up.

  • Brin Jenkins

    I think its getting colder, not hotter.

    • Dano2

      Stop thinking.

      Best,

  • Dano2

    Researchers don’t actually predict “mini ice age”. Are you trying to dupe your readers into sending you money or something?

    Best,

    D

    • Frank Energy

      This researcher predicts global cooling….mostly likely effect of super quiet sun.

      • Dano2

        A tiny amount. Hardly a “mini ice age”.

        Best,

    While nasa and noaa have recently declared 2015 to be the warmest year ever (data adjusted to provide predicted results) there will be no embarrassment because they will edit all the past predictions of catastrophic global warming to reflect impending ice age, and there will be no refunding of all the billions spent to prevent global warming.

    • Frank Energy

      Trillions. They want $15T

      • Daniel F. Melton

        Think we can part ’em out and recoup some of that?

      • PacE

        No the lawyers, sharks, and poli-tics will have used it all up

      • Daniel F. Melton

        Damn! Just have to use ’em for target practice.

  • Daniel F. Melton

    ***How come those who converted to the Church of Climatology, rarely
    if ever even know of the existence of United Nations, Agenda 21?***

    They do know of agenda 21, and they are hard at work implementing it. If they were to admit knowledge of this un mandate, they would likely be hanged by the people they’re stealing from.

    • anna miller

      Agreed, and it is quite alarming there are such disgusting humans as those who plan nefariously in regards to humanity. However, I tend to think the average person who fell for “The Inconvenient Lie” have never even heard of Agenda 21.

      • Daniel F. Melton

        But they can quote ya everything ya never wanted to know about the kardasians.

      • wandakate

        Back when Al Gore did that movie almost nobody knew anything about Agenda 21 at that time. I went to see that with my friend and we didn’t have a clue then. Had never heard of it, but of course now it’s more out in the open, but back then it wasn’t. Live and learn…

  • Ronda O’Bryant

    So we actually need global warming?

    • Frank Energy

      yes Ronda, they will be begging us to produce carbon, save the planet, burn a tree!

      • Daniel F. Melton

        Trouble is, CO2 is insignificant in the Earth’s climate.

      • PacE

        Oh that is true, but that won’t prevent them from begging for it. CO2 is not correlated or causative of global warming. Methane and water vapor are somewhat important. But the idiots don’t get it, its the sun.

  • frankenbiker

    Is this the same one that was predicted in 78-79? Lets face it, they’re no close to predicting the weather than they were in Columbus’s day. Global freezing, global warming, climate change, its all bullshit and they know it.

  • Frank Energy

    I have been predicting global cooling for about a decade, time will tell.

    Just look at all the monied interests promoting lies about global warming….they are getting desperate.

  • carefix

    Anna, It is worth knowing that atmospheric CO2 concentration is lower today than it was in the 1940s (peak 1942 @ 425ppm) and at times in the C19th. This is measured directly from the atmosphere rather than as implied by the ice core record used exclusively by the global warmists prior to ’57. The problem with the ice core record is that “it does not work” according to the inventor and developer of the method.

    On magnetic fields it is also worth noting that the coronal resistivity associated with lateral flare currents is six orders of magnitude higher than the Spitzer resistivity and roughly equivalent to that of sea water. Therefore the electical currents induced into the oceans via the coupling of the Earth’s and Sun’s magnetic fields will be massively higher and have a skin depth of about 300 metres so that 90% of this extra energy is coupled into about the top 700 metres of ocean depth, a figure used by Landscheidt as a requirement to explain the apparent temperature buffering between solar minima and maxima. I would love to see these currents measured directly (and possibly at higher bandwidth). Sould these currents turn out to be significant we then have an explanation for cooler periods when the solar magnetic field gets weaker (Livingston and Penn) and ice ages when the geomagnetic field drops to near zero. Indeed this event is known to be coincident with the onset of ice ages. This is worrying right now.
