A GLOBAL cooldown will usher in a 100-year mini-ice age, UK Experts

Details in the UK Daily Star:

Experts told Daily Star Online planet Earth is on course for a “Little Age Ice” within the next three years thanks to a cocktail of climate change and low solar activity.

Research shows a natural cooling cycle that occurs every 230 years began in 2014 and will send temperatures plummeting even further by 2019.

Scientists are also expecting a “huge reduction” in solar activity for 33 years between 2020 and 2053 that will cause thermometers to crash.

Both cycles suggest Earth is entering a global cooling cycle that could have devastating consequences for global economy, human life and society as we know it.

[…]

David Dilley, CEO of Global Weather Oscillations, told Daily Star Online global warming and cooling cycles are determined by the gravitational forces of the Earth, moon and sun.

Each cycle lasts around 120,000 years, with sub-cycles of around 230 years.

He said: “We have had five warming cycles since about 900AD, each followed by a dramatic cooling cycle.

“The last global warming cycle ended in 1790 and the year 2020 is 230 following this – thus I have been talking about rapid cooling beginning in 2019.”

He said the oncoming cooling will send temperatures plummeting to lows last seen in the 1940s – when the mercury bottomed out at -21C during winter in the UK.

He said: “Cooling from 2019 into about 2020 to 2021 will bring world temperatures back to where they were in the 1940s through the 1960s.

“The Arctic will freeze solid and rapidly by 2020 and thus allow much more Arctic air to build up and move southward toward Great Britain.

“Expect by the mid to late 2020s that winter temperatures will dip even colder than the 1940s to 1960s.

“This will last for 60 to 100 years and then a gradual warm-up toward the next global warming cycle that will not be as warm as the one we are now coming out of.”

Oops

The Met Office has previously told Daily Star Online that a new mini-ice age is a “worst case scenario”, adding that while temperatures are likely to dip, it will do little to offset man-made global warming.

But, if there is no global warming, as the pause continues, we could still see some serious cooling on the scale of a Maunder Minimum over then next 60–70 years.

One Response to A GLOBAL cooldown will usher in a 100-year mini-ice age, UK Experts

  1. The ‘Daily Star’ newspaper has a reputation for ‘sensationalism’ rather than cold hard fact (excuse the pun!), the news report quoted seems based on a report by CBN dated 09-07-2014, again a rather sensationalist source.
    Nonetheless, that does not invalidate the core information given, although the sources may raise the level of scepticism among those tending in that direction.
    The most recent data from genuine sources shows that while sunspot activity continues to decline, solar wind activity (refer Ap Index) originating from coronal holes rather than spots, has displayed something of an upsurge and it seems that this has had its effect on the Earth’s upper atmosphere. While we have seen unusually cold weather unusually far south this winter, this has not been as widespread as it might have been, some areas have been rather mild.
    The risk now is that continued sunspot decline will be paralleled by coronal hole and solar wind decline, as normally happens at solar minimum – though not necessarily directly synchronised, resulting in those fears being realised.
    An assessment of the relationship between Ap index and surface activity can be found here ..
