Skip to comments.NASA Admits That Winters are Going to Get Colder…Much Colder

The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time.
Like the Dalton Minimum and Spörer Minimum, the Maunder Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures.
During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, astronomers observed only about 50 sunspots, as opposed to a more typical 40,000-50,000 spots. (Source)
Climatologist John Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, thinks that last years winter, described by USA Today as one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record is going to be a regular occurrence over the coming decades.
Casey asserts that there is mounting evidence that the Earth is getting cooler due to a decline in solar activity. He warns in his latest book, Dark Winter that a major alteration of global climate has already started and that at a minimum it is likely to last 30 years.
Casey predicts food shortages and civil unrest caused by those shortages due largely to governments not preparing for the issues that colder weather will bring. he also predicts that wickedly bitter winter temperatures will see demand for electricity and heating outstrip the supply.
Casey isnt alone in his thinking. Russian climate expert and astrophysicist Habibullo Abdussamatov goes one step further and states that we are at the very beginning of a new ice age.
Dr. Abdussamatov points out that Earth has experienced such occurrences five times over the last 1,000 years, and that:
A global freeze will come about regardless of whether or not industrialized countries put a cap on their greenhouse gas emissions. The common view of Mans

Put Al Gore and the greenies on suicide watch.
Who wouldathunk that globull warming could cause a decrease in sun spots?
This has been done to death. I DISTINCTLY remember learning about ‘The Coming Ice Age’ back in high school in the 70’s. ;)
They will just claim that once the sunspots start up the globull warming will come back stronger than ever.
Action, opposite and equal re-action. Too hot summer, too cold winter. It’s settled science after all.
Algore will be most displeased.
I’m old enough to remember when man made climate change was going to the new ice age.
“Put Al Gore and the greenies on suicide watch.”
Nope Al gore and the greenies are just looking for a carbon neutral way to burn this heretic at the stake. “Climate change” isn’t science, it’s a religion.
To me this gets to the heart of the matter. Namely, that there are natural cycles at work with climate. The liberals who hype global warming and how we have to stop the rising of the oceans and allow the planet to heal, are fundamentally wrong about man made global warming.
We are in for tough weather regardless of whether Congress ever passes a cap and trade bill. Ditto the Obama EPA shutting down coal fired power plants. None of what the liberals are doing will make any difference.
The cold spell coming will last longer than those fools.
Any effect industrialization might have on climate would be inherently evil because man caused it.
Theory from 2009 that sunspot numbers would be declining.
The global warming types are willfully wrong,they just smell money to be stolen.
What no one has said (yet) is that the little ice age ended with a really big bang as solar activity ramped up in the 1850’s when the Carrington Event happened.
And the growing seasons will be shorter. Heating bills will rise. Etc.
Sorry it’s taken so long to take place:
NOAA: 2185 cold records broken or tied in past week 1913 Low Min Records Broken & 272 tied in 7 days (2/28/2015) -
“Who wouldathunk that globull warming could cause a decrease in sun spots?”
Are you a lurker from DU - I’m wondering because that is a perfect example of liberal logic.
It's humbling how small Man actually is in the grand scheme of things
