Robert at Ice Age Now has posted an article that supports the idea that we are on the cusp of the next grand minimum.  Appreciate your feedback.

We could be at the doorsteps of another Ice Age

By F. Guimaraes

Recent studies and observations indicate that we’re entering a phase of very low solar cycles. The present cycle C24 is already showing signs of being lower than C14 at the beginning of the XX century http://www.leif.org/research/Polar%20Fields%20and%20Cycle%2024.pdf and http://www.leif.org/research/SC14-and-24.png , and cycle C5 at the lower point of the Dalton minimum http://www.landscheidt.info/images/sc5_sc24.png .This means that C24 is showing signs that we could be entering a new Maunder minimum anytime soon.

The polar fields should have flipped at the end of cycle C23, around 2008-2009, but they continued with the same polarity, showing a stretched pattern http://www.leif.org/research/Solar-Polar-Fields-1966-now.png similar to what happened at the end of the 1960′s but more pronounced, which could lead to “break” of the field into a “quadripolar” mode very soon.This is another indication of the very low intensity of the present cycle.This low intensity could lead to a period of no sunspots as observed during the Maunder minimum between ~ 1640 to 1710 http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/28/Sunspot_Numbers.png , which could be the realization of the so called “Livingston-Penn” effect, which predicts a similar phenomenon in the near future http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/livingston-penn_sunspots2.pdf http://www.leif.org/research/LivingstonPenn%20Data%20and%20Findings%20so%20far.pdf .

Therefore, all the above and other analyzes there is more, eg., the pattern of 90k-10k years characteristic of Glacial and Interglacial periods, etc. indicate that the prediction of a “kill shot” from the Sun by Patrick Geryl and others, will not happen, quite the opposite: we could be at the doorsteps of another Ice Age.When asked what he thought of the “kill shot” model during our times, Leif Svaalgard called it “sensationalism”.Robert’s book “Not by Fire but by Ice” has it’s name for a reason.

People are being lured to look in the wrong direction by MSM, IPCC and others, but the facts are very clear and show a completely different problem that humanity will have to face very soon.A problem of much colder weather worldwide, not hotter.

  1. 70 years of Maunder-class LIA? Utterly unanticipated; except by a handful of us. History is replete with the evidence! Science per se has been suborned by politicians; but even more, by the state! Government, and the state, have failed again – this time promising what may be the greatest catastrophe ever for humanity.

    There is still an opportunity to mitigate the crisis with more preparation for cold weather, short growing season crops and methods.

  2. Chillguy33,
    Sorry to say the preparation will never happen, and even worse, our political leaders are preparing for warming and longer growing seasons and crop damage from heat. The evidence is that the growing season is growing shorter. Maybe they will wake up when we have a killing frost in June in the nations bread baskets. Stay tuned!

  3. shorter growing season cooler climate and less food production! and into the mix human population. This is before we think of changes to natural habitats
