'Mini Ice Age' coming in next fifteen years, new model of sun cycle shows

There will be a "mini ice age" in 2030, solar scientists have said.

We are now able to predict solar cycles with far greater accuracy than ever before thanks to a new model which shows irregularities in the sun’s 11-year heartbeat.

The model shows that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040 causing a "mini ice age".

The conditions predicted have not been experienced since the last "mini ice age" which lasted from 1645 to 1715, called the Maunder Minimum.


This article mentions how we are going to be having a very cold series of winters starting around 2030, which shows how much influence the sun can have on the temperature of the Earth. Some say the last 'Little Ice Age' lasted from 1250 to 1900. From the article, it seems like this one could only last for a decade or so, but it is unclear.

Some might say that climate change and the warming observed is just the result of a hot sun cycle. I am interested in experiencing these cold winters to see how cold they really get.

In the last "Little Ice Age" glaciers began to grow and many waterways froze over that don't freeze over today.

The Little Ice Age brought colder winters to parts of Europe and North America. Farms and villages in the Swiss Alps were destroyed by encroaching glaciers during the mid-seventeenth century.[19] Canals and rivers in Great Britain and the Netherlands were frequently frozen deeply enough to support ice skating and winter festivals.[19] The first River Thames frost fair was in 1607 and the last in 1814; changes to the bridges and the addition of an embankment affected the river flow and depth, hence diminishing the possibility of freezes.

Freezing of the Golden Horn and the southern section of the Bosphorus took place in 1622. In 1658, a Swedish army marched across the Great Belt to Denmark to attack Copenhagen. The winter of 1794–1795 was particularly harsh, when the French invasion army under Pichegru could march on the frozen rivers of the Netherlands, while the Dutch fleet was fixed in the ice in Den Helder harbour. In the winter of 1780, New York Harbor froze, allowing people to walk from Manhattan to Staten Island. Sea ice surrounding Iceland extended for miles in every direction, closing harbors to shipping.

It's very timely, perhaps it is the window we are looking for to safely get to Mars.

Yep, the thread will be shut down in no time at all.

But I know how to fix the problem.

How to stop the ice age
courtesy of Al Gore
1. Ban solar panels
2. Ban electric cars
3. Dig more coal and create more coal burning electric plants to keep people warm
4. Raise more cows to fart
5. Encourage the use of real fireplaces
6. Encourage people to drive alone
