Is 'global cooling' on the way? Lake sediment proves sun cooled earth 2,800 years ago - and it cou

• Lake sediment proves 'solar minimum' caused 200 years of cooling 2,800 years ago
• New minimum due soon - after this year's increased sunspot activity
• Sun's activity CAN cause changes in Earth's climate, claim scientists

Like many people, I have found that the science behind global warming is somewhat questionable. This new finding suggests that the impact of the sun is greater than 'warmists' would like to admit and that we are possibly due for a period of global cooling, rather than warming.

No doubt the warmists will merely jump bandwagons to keep the gravy train and their funding grants going.

When the Greek poet Homer was writing The Odyssey around 2,800 years ago, the Earth went through an abrupt period of cooling, caused by the sun - and the same could happen again soon.

Scientists at the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences analysed lake sediment in Lake Meerfelder Maar, and found direct evidence of a sudden cooling caused by a 'solar minimum'.

Some scientists suspect that the current period of high solar activity - including increased sunspots and solar storms thsi year - will be followed by a 'minimum' period, which could even cause an Ice Age.

If the GFZ research is correct, a new 'solar minimum' could have a direct impact on Earth's climate - cooling our planet drastically, and knocking the predictions of global-warming alarmists out of whack.

Three centuries ago similar changes in the Sun were linked to a period of almost unprecedented cold, known as the ‘little ice-age’ - a time when the ice on London’s River Thames was regularly a foot deep and when thousands went hungry because crops froze in the fields.

During this period and for about a century either side, much of Europe and North America suffered a succession of bitterly cold winters and damp washout summers - the ‘little ice age’.

Maybe I'll get to use my sled this winter then...assuming were not all dead from starvation by then.
Interesting find OP S&F

there was a major volcanic eruption in iceland 2800 years ago.

there was a a catastrophic eruption of Old Momotombo volcano in Nicaragua about 2700-2800 years ago.

large amount of sulfur dioxide in the air can and has caused global cooling (global dimming) without any signs that could have been seen in lake sediments
