Why is so cold everywhere in the world! Are we experiencing a small Ice Age?

Sure...No Ice Age...


The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a winter storm warning for the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa until 6 a.m. Wednesday (Feb 22) for elevations above 8,000 feet. A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected or is occuring.

Strong winds are also possible. Sleet, snow and freezing rain will make for hazardous conditions for drivers and hikers.
An additional three to four inches of snowfall is expected this afternoon and evening. As of 12:24 p.m. Tuesday (Feb 21) Mauna Kea Summit Access Road is closed at the Visitor Information Station due to ice and snow on roadways. Mauna Kea Rangers report that it is doubtful the road will be open today due to poor weather.
A wind advisory is also in effect for Big Island summits over 8,000 feet until 6 a.m. Wednesday (Feb 22).

are you being serious? do you know that is quite a famous mountain peak? the very name of it means "white mountain" in hawaiian. where I live it was 75, yet in the mountains there is open ski resorts.... so, not a good indicator for ice age.

15 deg here in the UK today,gotta be the warmest ice age I've ever experienced

It is my understanding that we have been in an ice age because we still have ice sheets in the Antarctic and Greenland??

Maybe it is coming to an end. Possibly as the ice sheets melt we see the accumulation of greenhouse gases and CO2 produced by Volcanoes. There are a number of them rumbling now.

The atmosphere is definitely changing. Either we are ending an ice age or we are on the verge of a HUGE one.


I dunno.

Ice ages are do not happen as we believe they are,the summer always come as the winter ,but the parameters are different as the ocean currents and other things modifies with phenomena that every year are new for all of us.

There are signs as to which period of an Ice Age we are in by researching and studying the ice sheets, carbon, methane, and so on. Its my understanding we are coming out of one of those glacial periods and perhaps entering a new ice age. Time will tell all though.

As much as we have left.

Well, if we get to point zero and start fresh then our questions will surely be answered. I don't think this is a "time" when all is lost, although I could be wrong.

Nothing was lost as nothing was gained,but the time is running out as everything depends on us and by this happening can be to late until we understand this.Hard to explain.

It suddenly started warming up degrees from -20 C to now +10 C... it feels so warm, where do you see Ice Age I don't know, it is sudden temperature amplitudes and unpredictable weather changes but in no way is it in 1 direction /getting colder/ no.

"The Little Ice Age", circa 1500 AD, was not named such as recently as 1939. In Scotland it was called the Wee Ice Age much earlier ... perhaps as early as the 17th century. The important fact is that it was part of cycle the puts roughly 500 years between extremes in global temperature.

This 500 year cycle even affects great historical developments. 1500 BC the global temperature was uncommonly cold, crops failed in much of the world, Egypt - being near the equator - had the climate advantage and became prosperous and powerful - and a target for the Hyskos Invasion. By 1000 BC the rest of the world had warmed up, the Israelites had left Egypt and the Assyrians and Spartans and Etruscans were able to build themselves up. At 500 BC the world chills again, and again the advantage goes to Egypt ... and Persia. At about 1 AD the world is warm again and Rome finds it easy to spread out. At roughly 500 AD the world is chilly again and the Roman Empire starts crumbling, bringing on the Dark Ages. By 1000 AD the world is so warm that the North Sea is no longer frozen and the Vikings are able to sail to Britain and Gaul. By 1500 it's cooled down, the Vikings are landlocked again and now the Renaissance advances with some indoor studying.

Which makes the year 2000 and thereabouts another high point in global temperature. This would have happened in any case - but by now human activity, especially industrialization, has made it a bit hotter than nature alone. Summers are baking, and enough vegetation is killed by the heat in summer that in winter there's little to hold the moisture in the ground, so the snow in some places is intense if brief. Apparently as the earth enters one of the 500-year extremes, both winter and summer show extreme temperatures (although inverted durations), possibly a natural phenomenon at equalizing the temperatures.

We see more snow storms...which happens because global warming leads to more water in the air, which then turns into snow once temperatures drop. And yeah, climate change can lead to more extreme weather overall, which is what we're experiencing.

I understand what you are saying. It makes you wonder if the elite are in the know as they should be and what precautions they are taking. To us it may look as though they are messing things up but hind sight is 20/20. Could they be trying to make it a less dramatic episode when and if we hit a "peak" or... ?
Do they even see the BIG picture yet...I think they are preparing without mass chaos. For now anyway.

As far as nothing lost and nothing gained I think I disagree. We have lost a lot in regards to the spiritual essence we all have embedded in us. We have no love for our fellow man nor do we respect the Earth. IMO we have come far off the track. We are stagnant now.

Regarding to mind and mentality evolution nothing has lost and nothing has gained,I think,but maybe I am wrong.Behavior human being remains the same for 2000 years despite technological evolution.

Maybe only weather patterns and times have changed.

And we are only in February.Alternating temperatures might amaze us.

Thank you for the brief description.

Human communities have always been constructed as a function of available climatic conditions .O density disturbance of the biological clock of the evolution of the climatic conditions in the future can mean more than a war.

I agree with the" high point in global temperature",but do not know what it feels like as already shown.

Anyway the weather is predictable for short period of times but for long period of times I think it is not.

I am always right.


Snow storm batters U.S. from Seattle to New York causing chaos on roads... but great ski weather for Californians Late winter storms forced school and road closures from Seattle to upstate New York on Wednesday, but the snow was welcomed in California as it suffers through one of the driest winters in history.
