Evidence of Solar Scientists Raise Fears of Imminent Ice Age

1970s New York Snowstorm NOAA

New study by American solar experts identifies a sharp fall in sunspot activity since 2007 that fits the hallmarks of a soon arriving ice age.

Solar scientists, not to be confused with climate scientists, study the most important heat engine driving our planet’s temperatures-the sun.

Matthew Penn and William Livingston, solar astronomers with the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Tucson, Arizona, have been following a marked decrease in sunspot activity recently. Reputable studies link a prolonged drop in sunspot activity to a cooling epoch or even a potential new ice age as more sunspots correlate with more global warming, while fewer sunspots are proven to match episodes of long-term cooling.

Since the formation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988 the talk has been about global warming. But 22 years on the evidence has grown to raise fears of a catastrophic climate switch in the opposite direction. We look at the evidence that is raising some very serious questions in the scientific community.

Thank you, John, for having the courage to discuss Earth’s heat source – the Sun.

Failure to discuss the heat source is, in my opinion, a clear indication that the global warming story is political rather than scientific.

The story confirms the danger of government science becoming a threat to “the supreme goals of our free society.” [Eisenhower’s farewell address to the nation (17 Jan 1961)]: http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/ike.htm

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.”

“. . . public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

“It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system – ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.”

The Climategate scandal exposed an even more dangerous world-wide alliance of world leaders that are misusing science as a tool of propaganda.

With kind regards,

The numbers now reflect a minimum and per Joseph D’Aleo the present cycle, numerically speaking will have a twin following it. The numbers now reflect the early 1700s and 1800s cycles.

For us, it is a two edge sword. On one side, there will be some thinning of the various herds. On the other, there are not clear signs of a mini-ice age.

I do agree that the climate will change significantly to cooler temperatures.

Climate-gate evened the playing field and it now appears there is an appearance. Is it too late for a significant change in government actions?

They are now totally bound to the inadequate climate models put out by the social science and political science controllers who still work hard from Hollywood and the elementary schools to the halls of the EU to push for the man-made global warming hoax and its cap and trade policies.

That will trim the herds further. That has already started.
