I hope we do get a mini ice age.
I loves biking and 4wheeling but snowmobiling is my favorite.

I already can not wait till the powder starts to fall.

The grass drags are three months away.
Braaaaap!!

I'm quite sure that these cycles are all mother nature's Way of keeping all populations of the earth in check .

Or, you know....Naturally occurring cycles that happen regardless of population density (or even the existence of life, for that matter).



Yeah my statement was a philosophical statement .

I figured as much, but it's hard to tell these days; Especially on ATS.

Finally! I'm perfectly comfortable in shorts and a wifebeater down to about 15° or so; Once it hits about 70° I start sweating, which really sucks, living in New Mexico.

If solar activity falls by 60% everything will die. Not a new ice age, a planet that can no longer sustain life.

Except maybe some bacteria. Some of those might live. Maybe life does go on...? I dunno...

But 60% ?! I don't buy it.



60% seems really impressive, but once you realize they are talking about solar flares not solar irradiance then it is not so impressive.

It does say solar activity. The devil is in the details.

People don't realize that climates change. Antarctica was once green. Now it's not.


Those types of changes happen over hundreds of thousands of years not a single hundred years. Big difference in scope.

So, if we start into a mini ice age, will the AGW people urge me to burn coal and tickle cows to make them belch and fart?
Or will they find a way to blame cooling on my previous cow tickling?

Well we all need hibernations once in a while, even the sun. I suppose if the sun output really drops by 60% then we all need to invest now in technologies which can turn ice and snow into cheeseburgers or were dooomed.

Nah just messing. Heating and cooling cycles are the norm, in fact last I checked this planet more natural state is in the more cooler side, we have been going through a heat wave for pretty much the past few millions of years or so. But hey, who knows, we shall see. Seems normal to me.

We need those methane plumes the caveman guy is always screaming about.

Ugh, they can't even predict the weather for more than about a day out. How the hell can they say the sun is gonna go into hibernation in 15 years? I don't buy it.

I guess those of you that live in hellish climates (I'm talking to you Texas, LOL!) should get used to winter weather. Come spend a winter in Wisconsin. Been living here for over 40 years. I think I can handle a little cold. Not an ice age though. Screw that!

Time to start building that ark. I hear that Venus will be decent about that time.

Solar Cycles have been known for some time.

Solar Cycles often lead to long periods of hot weather or long periods of cold weather. Right now, we're in a period of hotter weather.

While I don't deny that humans have had a lasting impact on climate change over the last 100 years, and certainly over the last 50, you just can't ignore the SUN as a major influencer on Earth's weather systems.

Temperatures have also been increasing on other planets in the Solar System as the Sun increases activity, and that's certainly not due to human influences.

However, you can't look at the population increase from a population of 1 billion to a population of 7 billion in little over 100 years and claim that humans have had zero impact on Earth's systems. For millions of years, earth had a sustainable population that was kept in check by nature. Nature only produced enough food to sustain a population that was right for the planet.

The deaths caused from hunger during the period called the Little Ice Age gives a clue to the potential damage another LIA will cause. We no longer have the wildlife to feed a hungry world so if the worlds crops fail we could be facing something like a 50% reduction in the worlds population.

Many sources tell that FEMA over past years have stockpiled large quantities of ready-to-eat meals, blankets, and body bags whilst Homeland Security has been stocking up on massive amounts of ammunition, firearms, and riot gear. The question is why?

Rug up.

This would be unreal to live through, but doesn't seem legit to me because the idea would have been thrown around in science circles long before this announcement, and we are 15 years away. I don't mean discussing ice ages while debating global warming, but specifically that an ice age is upon us in the fairly near future, i.e. 15 years away. If true a lot of species will go extinct.

That's what I've been trying to tell everyone.
So thanks for bringing more info.

Wait, the sun has an impact on Earth's temperature!?!?!? Oh my God! Quickly, someone call All Gore before he makes an ass of himse.... Uhp, too late.


By the way, I am always amused at comments stating confidently precise information such as "those fluctuations took hundreds of thousands of years" in a thread based on a news article stating that climatologists are just now starting to figure out a pattern based on hundreds of years of actual physically observed data. We're talking about how Herculean a scientific challenge it has been to analyze real data while being expected by the Global Warming Chicken Littles to accept theoretically obtained assumed temps from ages before man...

Hmmm... I enjoyed my normal July warm day here in Alaska. Sure glad it didn't rain like it on past July 10ths, wasn't too chilly like it has been on past July 10ths, and wasn't overly hot and muggy like it has been on other July 10ths. You'd almost think it was some sort of cycle.

I really just do not get how they come up with these figures other than guesstimates.....

We would actually have to have a clue as to how the sun cycles work over many thousands of years,these models they are using are based on incomplete data.....anyhow i would take a stab in the dark here and say these guys and gals are way off...
