  • Earth faces another ICE AGE within 15 YEARS as Russian scientists discover Sun 'cooling'

    10/22/2016 7:04:55 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 54 replies ^ | 10/22/2016 | Sean Martin
    Experts say that solar activity as low as it currently is has not been seen since the mini-ice age that took place between 1645 and 1715 – a period known as the Maunder Minimum where the entire Thames froze over. A new model has allowed experts to predict solar activity with more accuracy than ever before and it suggests that magnetic activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040. The model looks at the Sun’s ’11-year heartbeat’ – the period it takes for magnetic activity to fluctuate. This cycle was first discovered some 173 years ago. However,...

    Everyone knows that before the global warming scare began in the 1980s, scientists were much more worried about global cooling and the coming ice age. At least everybody did till a cabal of lying climate alarmists – one then a senior administrator at NOAA, now a president at the World Meteorological Association – hijacked Wikipedia, published a lying paper, and rewrote history by painting the 1970s Global Cooling Scare as an urban myth.

    Global warming alarmists resist any science that doesn’t toe their line, and one physicist in the UK is speaking out about how her research on global cooling is ruffling their feathers. Northumbria University at Newcastle Professor Valentina Zharkova has been researching what she believes are indicators of a coming period of global cooling. According to The Washington Times, her research, “Irregular heartbeat of the Sun driven by double dynamo” was presented in July at the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, Wales and also posted to the website of The Royal Astronomical Society: Her sunspot modeling indicates a reduced solar magnetic...
  • New Solar Research Raises Climate Questions, Triggers Attacks

    08/12/2016 7:17:22 PM PDT · by detective · 20 replies
    Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun. If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately. The research suggests that the next three solar cycles will see solar activity reduce significantly into the middle of the century, producing conditions similar to those last seen in the 1600s – during the Maunder Minimum. This may have implications for temperatures here on Earth. Future solar cycles will serve as a test of the astrophysicists’ work, but...

This is the dire forecast of Professor Valentina Zharkova, a solar physicist at Northumbria University, who has based her prediction on sun spot activity – known to be a significant driver of global climate – which is currently very low and likely to get even lower during the next three solar cycles.

Subzero readings were even observed near the Canadian border in northern Michigan, northern New York and northern Maine Tuesday morning. More record cold is possible on Wednesday morning in the Northeast. Then the cold will become more expansive late this week due to yet another southward dip in the jet stream which will allow more arctic air to push south from Canada.

More blizzards are forming outside the normal storm season of October to March, scientists have found.

    The entire rationale for wind turbines is to stop global warming by reducing the amount of CO2 being returned to the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels. In the attached picture, recently taken in Sweden, freezing cold weather has caused the rotor blades of a wind turbine to ice up bringing the blades to a complete stop. To fix the “problem” a helicopter is employed (burning aviation fuel) to spray hot water (which is heated in the frigid temperatures using a truck equipped with a 260 kW oil burner) on the blades of the turbine to de-ice them.

In a new explanation for the long-lasting plunges in global temperatures that cause ice ages, scientists pointed to a combination of...

    BURNING fossil fuels and cutting down trees causes global COOLING, a shock new NASA study has found. Major theories about what causes temperatures to rise have been thrown into doubt after NASA found the Earth has cooled in areas of heavy industrialization where more trees have been lost and more fossil fuel burning takes place. Environmentalists have long argued the burning of fossil fuels in power stations and for other uses is responsible for global warming and predicted temperature increases because of the high levels of carbon dioxide produced - which causes the global greenhouse effect.

    Solar observers predict a “Little Ice Age (LIA)” to arrive before 2100. While expert economists confirm that a modestly warmer climate benefits both health and human prosperity, a colder climate generally spells more sickness and poses real danger to agricultural yields—with consequent famines and mass starvation. These calamities can be overcome – through adequate and timely preparation of energy supplies, water projects, and croplands. There is some urgency in preparing now for the possibility of such a cold period, similar to the LIA that prevailed off and on during 1400-1800 AD. It is likely then that tropical regions will end...

The report cited famines in the Soviet Union, drought in Latin America and flooding in the U.S. as examples of how global cooling was wreaking havoc on countries.

    The plan by climate alarmists to have other scientists imprisoned for their ‘global warming’ skepticism is backfiring horribly, and the chief alarmist is now facing a House investigation into what has been called “the largest science scandal in US history.”

    Serious Global Cooling Discovered as Paris Climate Deal Looms 10/01/2015 Share As world leaders get ready to head to Paris for the latest pact on cutting CO2 emissions, it has emerged that there isn’t as much urgency about the matter as had been thought. A team of top-level atmospheric chemistry boffins from France and Germany say they have identified a new process by which vast amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted into the atmosphere from the sea – a process which was unknown until now, meaning that existing climate models do not take account of it.

    Scientists have discovered a hitherto unknown cooling process which may pose a serious threat to man-made global warming theory. According to a study by the Institute of Catalysis and Environment in Lyon (IRCELYON, CNRS / University Lyon 1) and the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), the oceans are producing unexpectedly large quantities of isoprene – a volatile organic compound (VOC) – which is known to have a cooling effect on climate. Isoprene is a gas that is formed by both the vegetation and the oceans. It is very important for the climate because this gas can form particles that...

    FAIRBANKS—An early winter storm is expected to dump as much as 18 inches of snow into the heart of Denali National Park and Preserve overnight, causing rangers to temporarily close portions of the road for travelers today. With about 10 inches of snow falling by noon at the Eielson Visitor Center at Mile 66 of the Park Road, crews closed the road to incoming traffic this morning at Mile 53 at Toklat River. The closure was lifted later this afternoon, although a winter weather advisory remains in effect through Monday morning. The conditions mean an uncertain trip for winners of...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado’s 2015-2016 Winter season may be one for the record books as El Nińo conditions strengthen in the Pacific Ocean. The El Nińo forecast released by NOAA suggests a colder winter with more snowfall than normal. Ocean temperatures in the equatorial Pacific have been as much as four degrees warmer than average over the past few months. Historically, this setup has brought more moisture into the state during the winter months, especially southwestern Colorado, but Denver has also seen its largest snowstorms during El Nińo years.

  • A Week After Heatwave, Snow Falls in Bavaria

    From 30C to snow in under a week? It's possible in Germany where seven centimetres of the white stuff fell at the top of the Bavarian Alps on Friday. It might seem like summer was only last week in Germany – and that's because it was. With blazing sunshine and temperatures topping 30C over the weekend, the onset of winter couldn't have been further from most Germans' minds. But in the Bavarian Alps, autumn has been skipped out altogether. At Zugspitze – Germany's highest peak, at 2,962m – seven centimetres of snow have already fallen, reports the Münchner Merkur. "The...
