I replied with this in another forum and then thought
wait.. I've seen way shorter threads with less info
many times on ATS.
So what the heck ? I made a real long one.
But hopefully interesting enough to keep
some of you reading.
Tear me up. I'll be brave.
You old hats have no idea how intimidating it is
lurking and then joining and jumping in.
And jumping in with wild speculation on
recent scientific data regarding the Sun
and the hypothesis that the Ice Age is here
And yes, I searched and there are plenty of Ice Age threads but
I'm now willing to stick my neck out and call the
Ice age arrived and docked.
Absolutely Positively Complete utter speculation on my part.
The Sun is falling asleep as we speak.
The mini ice age is here and this was what
winter 2013 ushered in.
Winter 2013 was especially cold in North America
right about where the ice sheets stopped
11,000 years ago.
It's been about 400 years since
the last mini ice age, the Maunder Minimum.
Interestingly they happen about once every 400 years,
during interglacial periods .
In 1604 Sunspot numbers started dropping rapidly
and the Suns irradiance probably diminished
every so slightly .
Less than 1%. But that's enough.
Little changes on the Sun equal big changes on Earth.
Well guess what is happening right now ?
Sunspots are diminishing.
But because climate prediction models
have never factored in Sun variability,
The IPCC has never taken this into account.
Maybe that's why temperatures have actually
been cooling on Earth since 1998 ?
Co2 and temp are no longer inseparable.
The Sun hit the hay. It's a perfect storm.
The sharp sunspot drop like the one
we are experiencing now is pretty close to
what happened with the Sun during the
mini ice age of the Renaissance.
Yes I know Volcanoes blah blah.
But maybe they are related as well
(Hey did you here sprites
happen from outer space then
come into our atmosphere?)
We give very little attention as people to the biggest
controller of Everything in about a billion mile diameter bubble.
Can it cause volcanism or Eq's ? please...if it burped just right
we are all toast.
Back to Sun spots, our spots are dropping more quickly than
the period just before the last grand minima.
Faster than anytime in the last 9,000 years.
Also the Suns' heliosphere has weakened
and shrunk substantially.
Earths magnetosphere and atmosphere
are both at all time lows.
After the next few winters there will be no question
as to whether an ice age is here or not.
And it may be that this is the Big Solar Sleep.
The Sun does this roughly every 110,000 years.
One that lasts for 90,000 years.
Cold thick ice caps have been the norm on Earth
for the last 2 million years.
Like clockwork. 90k of cold, then a thaw, then wham
big flood, then 11k of warm.
Guess how long it's been warm btw?
If this is the case and 'This is the big one Elizabeth',
As far as North America's concerned ;
Canadians and everyone north of Indiana
will have to move eventually. Except western Alaska
perhaps and some areas of the Northwest.
But Minnesota Illinois Wisconsin will get it first.
If the big one my guess is
Ice sheets 2 miles high will quickly form.
Chicago recorded the coldest day ever for July last month
and the Antarctic is a ice making machine at the moment.
That's enough for now right? Go get blankets and kindling.
And Hell, take your catalytic converters out of your cars.
I'm kidding, if I'm right we all still have time to do something
about this with relative ease as far as world ending crisis go.
I get we'll have a 5-10 year warning of progressive cold.
Check out cold records vs hot for 2014. Including summer.
Cold records are whomping heat. But after two more cold
ones let's get after it with a vengeance .
This kind of change is global. Crops need to move
etc, t may be good for us to operate as one people for a change.

I have no idea how Al Gore will handle this.
