    The Earth entered a little Ice Age phase beginning in 2014-2015, which will last into the 22nd century. The Earth has gone through many such phases; reduction in solar activity has led us to another.

    So, how should we respond? Given that offshore oil supplies will be increasingly less accessible due to ice, we should build nuclear power plants as quickly as possible.


    “The New Little Ice Age Has Started.” This is the unambiguous title of a new study from one of the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions, the Russian Academy of Science’s Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg. “The average temperature around the globe will fall by about 1.5 C when we enter the deep cooling phase of the Little Ice Age, expected in the year 2060,” the study states. “The cooling phase will last for about 45-65 years, for four to six 11-year cycles of the Sun, after which on the Earth, at the beginning of the 22nd century, will begin the new, next quasi-bicentennial cycle of warming.”


    Habibullo Abdussamatov, the head of space research at Pulkovo and the author of the study, has been predicting the arrival of another little ice age since 2003, based on his study of the behaviour of the Sun’s different cycles and the solar activity that then results. His model — informed by Earth’s 18 earlier little ice ages over the past 7,500 years, six of them in the last thousand years — led to his prediction more than a decade ago that the next little ice age would occur between 2012 and 2015. Unlike the global warming models of scientists, which were soon disproved by actual measurements, Abdussamatov’s models have been affirmed by actual events, including the rise of the oceans and the measurable irradiance sent earthward by the sun. This record of accuracy — which he has repeatedly demonstrated in studies between 2003 and now — leads him to now confidently state that in 2014–15, we began our entry into the 19th Little Ice Age....

    Watch the left suddenly become climate deniers over this.
    Just like they've been doing with Putin.

    I think it would be great if both ends were right about this stuff.

    We're entering an ice age, but man-made global warming will negate it, and we'll all be comfy.

    :laugh:

    Yes - so they can freeze solid and stop working. But at least they won't be killing more Bald Eagles.

    That was actually the theory back in the 70s.

    This is exactly why they changed the name of their catastrophe to "climate change" instead of "global warming". Now they can say, "Look! The climate is changing! We need all of your money! Quick, before we all freeze to death!"

    We can begin by noting that Energy Probe and Lawrence Foster are in fossil fuel pockets.

    Go to the site and read.

    Why do you mindlessly parrot this GOP scripted lie spread by GOP hate radio????

    NASA - What's in a Name? Global Warming vs. Climate Change

    To a scientist, global warming describes the average global surface temperature increase from human emissions of greenhouse gases. Its first use was in a 1975 Science article by geochemist Wallace Broecker of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory: "Climatic Change: Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?"1

    And yet 2014 and 2015 were the 2 warmest years in the history of direct instrument measurement!!! :cuckoo:
