Video – Earth headed for 30-Year cold spell

16 Nov 2014 – With nasty cold fronts thrusting an icy and early winter across the continental U.S. —

along with last winter described by USA Today as “one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record”

— author John L. Casey thinks the weather pattern is here to stay for decades to come.

In fact, Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, is out with the  provocative book “Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell,” which warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong.

The earth, he says, is cooling, and cooling fast.

  1. I think volcanic rock dust can help plants become more cold tolerant. I am currently living in my car and my rock dust treated banana plant is in the back seat of the car and it has not froze or suffered frost damage yet. The trace elements in rock dust help plants grow to their genetic potential and toughen them up against pests, disease and probably the cold.

  2. Hi Robert, in various interviews you mention there were many places on Earth that were liveable even during the depths of the ice age. My question is, given that the Earth is much drier overall and the massive ice sheets alter the jet stream, would it really be liveable not far from one of these ice sheets? I mean, wouldn’t the weather be bad even in areas not covered by ice? There are vegetation maps showing a lot of desert worldwide during the last major Glacial. What are your thoughts

    • Hi Joe, Many, many years ago (more than I like to admit) I spent a fair amount of time in Juneau, Alaska. At one time I rented an apartment just a quarter mile from the face of the Mendenhall Glacier. In fact, even though Juneau is the capitol of the state, it is surrounded by glaciers. (You cannot get there by road.) It has glaciers to the north, glaciers to the south, and directly behind the city lies the Juneau Icefield, the fifth-largest ice field in the Western Hemisphere. And yet, even with all those glaciers, Juneau’s climate is quite enjoyable. So yes, I know from experience that it can be very livable near the glaciers.

      • Interesting… So I guess my next question is, can one grow crops next to a glacier? I mean sure it’s ‘liveable’, but what about food? Also the growing areas that exist today (that aren’t covered by glaciers during an ice age) I think would be severely affected by the ice age, as I wrote before due to the lack of moisture around the world. Looking at vegetation maps from the last Glacial, there is a lot of desert world wide:
        Whatever way you slice it, it looks like there will be fighting for good land around world.

      • Question:
        These glaciers in Alaska you mentioned, were they at groundlevel or up in the mountains ?
        In the latter case, the climate on groundlevel or valley would be very different than in the mountains obviously and indeed fairly mild and shielded maybe from cold northerly winds ?

  3. RE the warm waters of the Great Lakes causing the Buffalo snow event.
    0n Nov 11, Robert reported a NOAA map of the Great Lakes showing below normal water temps. On Nov 16 it was reported that ice was appearing weeks earlier than normal on Lake Superior followed by the earliest ice closure of the Upper Mississippi in history. SO, which is it? Has global warming raised the water temperature to cause more lake effect snow or are the lake temps lower causing early icing? Can’t have it both ways.

    • Lake effect works off relative temperature differences. If the water is 50 degrees and the cold snap is 26 degrees – you will get less of a lake effect than 45 degree water and 0 – 13 degree temps.

      Yes in this case you can have it both ways because it became just that much colder.

  4. The pattern of the winter 2013-2014 looks to be reinstating itself for the next winter.
    – Unusually and early low temperatures, huge amounts of snow and ice in North America.
    – Mild and rainy weather in Europe. The temperatures currently are above the average ones like they were last year.

    • Jacques, yes this will be interesting. Up until now, the really cold winters have been taking turns, hitting Europe for a few years and more recently North America. Will this winter hit both continents hard?

    I found the video very helpful lots of questions To hear John L Casey an eminent scientist speak so clearly was inspiring and very though provoking. Thank you
