Hello peeps before I start I would like to clear up a couple of things. Firstly I am not trying to scaremonger I am trying to open a decent discussion
about the Ice age we have coming in the near future. Of course there has been plenty of talk about some recent factors that could well contribute to
an Ice age in the very near future. Some may be regarding as silly, some may be regarded as obvious and inevitable but there are a couple of things
that are not discussed as much here on ATS, such as us being overdue for an Ice age already and also what would be the effects of an Ice age in
Firstly I will start off with some of the recent factors that could be considered a strong possibility of causing an Ice age. I am not going to add
too much of my opinion to these ones as the main purpose of this thread is to discuss the subjects about the coming Ice age that are not discussed as
much here on ATS. I will get to these in a bit, please bare with me.
Some sources are saying that the gulf stream is slowing down, some are saying that it has actually stopped. Some of the sources seem quite reliable
and grounded in strong science and others seem a lot less reliable.
Here are some who are saying that the gulf stream slowed down;
World Climate Report
Here are some sources that dispute the slowing down of the gulf stream;
Here are some sources that claim the gulf stream has actually stopped;
The Rev Counter
Geralds Celente Centre
Here is an ATS thread that discusses BP being responsible for causing the gulf stream to
Here is an ATS thread discussing how manmade global warming could cause an Ice age
Ok now that we have got that out the way we can get to the the part I really wanted to discuss with you peeps. Feel free to discuss anything I have
already posted but if you prefer you could go to the threads already existing on ATS for those subjects. Also if you want to find some more sources
related to anything I have said then I advice you search Google, there are plenty of relevant sources available.
Firstly I would like to show you this graph which shows the climate change that has taken place over thousands of years. They get this data from
taking Ice core samples from Antarctica. Basically the data depicts the process of global warming and cooling going back thousands of years. If you
observe the data you can see that global warming is a natural process that occurs over time. The planet heats up until eventually it cools itself down
with an Ice age.
On observing the data you should also be able too see that in theory, through looking at the earth's natural global warming and cooling processes
going back thousands of years that we are due an Ice age soon. Regardless of all the sources I have previously posted and regardless of whether these
sources are true or not.
So what I would also like to discuss with you guys and gals here is the following;
- What would be the effects of an Ice age on our current society? For example, how would it effect commerce, travel, business, agricultural, Industry,
Government, Law and order and social state. More importantly, how would it effect us at home?
- When could we expect this Ice age to occur if we could predict it at all?
- What would we be able to do to prepare for an Ice age? The country and world as a whole but also at home.
- Anything else any of you would like to discuss about the matter.
In my opinion it is not so much how
another Ice age could happen on earth but When
and What we could do
to prepare ourselves.
Thanks for reading,
