Rather than spiraling into a meltdown, we may be heading into next ice age

The U.S. National Solar Observatory, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and astrophysicists across the planet report that the nearly all-time low sunspot activity may result in a sustained cooling period on Earth.


Rather than spiraling into a meltdown, we may be heading into next ice age
By Shannon Goessling

(Excerpts) – Many reputable scientists have been warning for decades that we are nearing the end of the 11,500-year average period between ice ages. And the last similar crash in sunspot activity coincided with the so-called “Little Ice Age” in the 1600s that lasted nearly a century.

What happens during a “Little Ice Age?” Food-producing land becomes scarcer, food-growing seasons become shorter, and the world becomes a much more arid and less hospitable place. Think food shortages and the social unrest that follows.

Ice age threat should freeze EPA global warming regs

The forces at work behind the global warming regulatory regime have, at worst, covered up, ignored and manipulated climate evidence to make the case that humans cause global warming and therefore humans should be punished.

At best, the mainstream scientific community is continuing to weigh the climate data as it becomes available. Caught in the flux are millions of Americans suffering under an economic tsunami that is anything but a theory.

Despite increasing evidence that “global warming” climate change is not the unified scientific theory it has been promoted to be, vested interests continue to push for stringent limits on carbon dioxide emissions.

Certain investment banks and trading houses that stand to make billions on so-called “carbon credits,” and the environmental sociologists who have as a stated purpose to change our way of life, are a powerful bloc.

In the Obama administration, this cabal has a willing “big stick” in the form the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has enacted draconian measures that will, by President Obama’s admission, make energy costs “skyrocket.”

The EPA regulations were enacted this year without congressional approval as required by the Clean Air Act and other laws. Estimates put the economic damage of these regulations at $1 trillion over the next 20 years, with a loss of between four and 10 million jobs.

Moving forward with global warming regulations is truly “absurd.”

  1. It seems to me that they do know what’s coming and want to hasten the great die off while they make sure of their survival at our expense. All their policies converge in the end about draconian population control and reduction.
    Always remember that the best laid plans of mice and men have often gone astray.
    We forget God at our own peril.

    • You are absolutely, 100%, positively correct about the plans of the “Global Elitists.” They know that we are facing an ice age. They intend to winnow the wheat from the chafe through their disinformation campaign called “Global Warming.”

      The way they see it, anyone dumb enough to believe their propaganda is not smart enough to merit survival in their “restructured” global society. The global society which they intend to institute following the initial chaos of death and despair caused by freezing, famine, war, and exodus.

      Remember always, these people are selfish and would rather not share this planet with anyone else except those whom they have an absolute need to tolerate. And then, only in the lowest numbers necessary to maintain themselves in their narcissistic exalted status.

      May we be spared from the stupidity of the “collective.”

  2. I wonder whether in little ice ages places which are currently arid semi-deserts become the ‘bread basket of the earth’?

    Let’s assume Southern Spain cools a bit, North Africa cools a bit, the Middle East gets more rain, eh?

    Would we grow less food or grow it in different places?

    I don’t know, but I think we should think that way rather than thinking of apocalypses……

    • Historically, the Romans farmed wheat across North Africa and other areas which are too dry for substantial crops today.

      It is not very often that I read, or hear historians remark or seriously speculate on why a huge city would be built in what is today an inhospitable place. Given the logistics of transporting the necessities of life, it most probable that these ancient cities were built close to the sources of food and raw materials. The fact that many of these ancient cities are buried beneath sand, is a testament to the nature of global climate change; as the land became inhospitable, the people moved.

      However, modern archaeology would have us believe that these cities were all built to worship gods and were destroyed by wars; perhaps some were. And perhaps some were destroyed by wars caused by crops failures related to climate changes, and perhaps some were just slowly abandoned (like Timbuktu) because of changes in human behavior due to climate changes.

      But mostly, it seems that today’s historians and archaeologists prefer to ignore this aspect of the endeavor. Perhaps for fear of being a target in the “War on Credible Science” being waged by the “Global Elitists” under the guise of “Man Made Global Climate Change?”

  3. The press are getting excited in the UK because one forecaster has claimed that the UK is heading for a record cold winter. What is for certain is that there are many players in the debate who use the pretext of global warming for their own political or corporate ends. Here in the UK, our Government uses it as justification for increasing taxes on gas, electricity and petrol and for increasing overseas aid whilst cutting domestic spending. Conversely, the oil industry funds the opponents of global warming for very obvious reasons. Meteorology has made great strides with respect to forecasting up to about five days ahead, but beyond that, the weather and climate system is simply too complex to be modelled fully. Don’t confuse science with politics. More here: http://durotrigan.blogspot.com/2011/10/uk-winter-forecast-2011-2012-blowing.html

    • Don’t confuse hot with cold. For at least the past 75 years, Ice Age studies have shown a definite pattern of global warming and cooling; spanning close to one million years. The cyclic occurrence of these events has been fairly well determined. It is also well understood that we are in a warm interglacial period and furthermore, based upon the approximate average of these interglacial periods, we are at or nearing the end of the present one. How near is debatable. It could be this winter, next winter, a decade from now; even decades or centuries away. It could happen within over a few days, weeks, months, or take many years to bring about. There are several schools of thought on this point; each having various forms of evidence to back their assumptions.

      But, make no mistake, another ice age will happen. Whether governments choose to “publicly” ignore the obvious while “silently” preparing for it, is politics. Likewise, do not be fooled, the leading governments know the real score and are making plans for the survival of them and theirs. Politicians are nothing, if not survivors…..

  4. One thing we have to remember is that colder weather ties up more water in ice so there are large areas of drought near where the most ice is – one of the scientists in Australia said, a few years ago, that he thought the current drought there was directly related to the thickening of the ice in Antartica.
    Warmer = wetter and colder = drier. Where we can grow crops and raise feed animals will probably change drastically.

    • Very true! Furthermore, if you look at Ice Age maps of the North American Continent, you will see the lines of demarcation from previous ice ages. In many instances, these lines still form the boundaries between wetter regions with more trees and drier areas of grassy planes. Generally speaking, we are seeing increased flooding from heavy rains with earlier and greater snow fall North of these lines; and drought conditions south of these lines today.
