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

It's been mild here just outside of Vancouver, B.C, Canada as well. We had an unseasonably cold blast back in the last two weeks of January, dropping us to -10C to -15C before windchill (-20C to -30C with the windchill).

Having a mild winter is about the norm here, but not this mild.

That is true as they say before a serious global warming, we could experience a small ice age.


I think you got that backwards. Warm weather usually precedes an ice age, not the other way around. The natural state of this planet is what we'd call an ice age (80,000 years of cold to 10,000 years of warmth, with mini-ice ages in between). We're currently at the tail end of this current warming trend, and we've already experienced a mini-ice age.

Ya up here in Canada we have a word for that. It's called winter. Judging from alot of the posts that I've read from you I would guess that you have a problem with jumping to conclusions. We are having the warmest winter in a long time up here and you're calling it an ice age?! Please get your facts straight before wasting any more of our time.

According to this article from yesterday Volcanoes may have sparked a "Little Ice Age". It is about time people "in the know" are saying what they KNOW.

Thank you for that article MamaJ,I think if some parts of the world are experiencing a warm weather could be very dangerous,we may see short periods of winter in July.

ICE AGE!!???

Outside of a little 3 day blizzard, it's been just about the mildest winter I've ever witnessed in Seattle, WA.

Where are you getting your info from huh? Almost everyone says it's been a weak weak winter.

not everywhere

in connecticut, every month in 2011 was at least 1 degree warmer than the record for a month, and this month is trending at about 5 degrees warmer

global warming will cause polar ice melt, which will alter the salinity levels in the oceans, which will change currents, which will lead to some areas getting colder

Are you not going to respond to my previous post with the news article talking about hibernating animals coming out too early?

If you are going to make a claim, then address the issues that go against it.......

Otherwise you are trolling us

Ask Gore. He will tell you that it is due to global warming!

Mate, look at Diamondsmiths other posts, all he (mostly) does is copy and paste external text, a lot of which doesn't make sense with what he is trying to prove / disprove, his "it's 2000, not 2012" thread is a classic example of this.

Rarely does he directly answer other posters questions.

He is a very frustrating character to say the least.

No offence DS.

EDIT: It has only recently became cold in my part of England, normally it is one of the coldest. This winter has almost been like spring, even plants, animals, birds and insects are confused.

Wouldn't mind a cool front right about now

It's about 40 degrees outside and raining. Normally this time of the year it's about 10. It's like a heat wave. So far this winter I've burned about 75 gallons less than last year. Normally my tank (Kerosene) would be running out by now and I'd be ordering my second tank. Probably not for another 4 or 5 weeks now. One of my friends noticed a couple of robins the other day. She thought, "Wow, they're back already." Another friend of mine who's also a Native healer says the robins never left. If the robins never went south this year, I don't think we're going to have much of a winter. Must be Great Britain is getting all our cold weather, my heart goes out to you.
