30 Years of Global Cooling Are Coming, Leading Scientist Says

30 Years of Global Cooling Are Coming, Leading Scientist Says

From Miami to Maine, Savannah to Seattle, America is caught in an icy grip that one of the U.N.'s top global warming proponents says could mark the beginning of a mini ice age.

From Miami to Maine, Savannah to Seattle, America is caught in an icy grip that one of the U.N.'s top global warming proponents says could mark the beginning of a mini ice age.

Oranges are freezing and millions of tropical fish are dying in Florida, and it could be just the beginning of a decades-long deep freeze, says Professor Mojib Latif, one of the world's leading climate modelers.

Latif thinks the cold snap Americans have been suffering through is only the beginning. He says we're in for 30 years of cooler temperatures -- a mini ice age, he calls it, basing his theory on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the world's oceans.

Latif, a professor at the Leibniz Institute at Germany's Kiel University and an author of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, believes the lengthy cold weather is merely a pause -- a 30-years-long blip -- in the larger cycle of global warming, which postulates that temperatures will rise rapidly over the coming years.

At a U.N. conference in September, Latif said that changes in ocean currents known as the North Atlantic Oscillation could dominate over manmade global warming for the next few decades. Latif said the fluctuations in these currents could also be responsible for much of the rise in global temperatures seen over the past 30 years.

What a hollow farce Anthropogenic Global Warming is.

And yet observe how scientists must acknowledge Baal even as they explain why he isn't setting fire to the pyre today.

Why don’t scientists stick with trying to get the 5 day weather forecast right more often than make silly predictions like these?

It sure does amaze me when so called “scientists” can predict the weather over 30 years, but cannot accurately forEcast the amount and intensity of Hurricanes over a ONE YEAR PERIOD.

While I agree that the U.S. and most of the rest of the world seem to be in the grips of a truly awful winter, Seattle has an El Nino off the coast and we are having mild temperatures. It is raining heavily today, but, hey, that is winter in Seattle.

I’ve been noticing, its been colder in Florida than it has been in Denver.

Cold snaps happen occasionally, of course, but this one is amusing since the Stupids have tried to politicize the weather, of all things.

Oh my gosh, its hot. We need to elect more corrupt socialists into office. No, wait, its colder than all get out. We need to elect more corrupt socialists into office. These people are a broken record; if the sun comes up in the morning or it fails to come up in the morning, the answer is more corrupt socialists voted into office.

This is a direct result of EPA reducing CO2 rates. We must burn more fossil fuel to stave off the Ice Age! Never forget. Liberal policy always results in the opposit of the intended result.

OK, so if carbon emissions can cause global warming, does that mean we can potentially stave off global cooling by producing MORE CO2?

likely the reason is there is not enough carbon dioxide because plants are converting it to oxygen. </s>

Not true. This weekend was almost shirt-sleeve weather in Seattle's Eastside. It's generally been a relatively warm winter with no snow at all.

Alternately, we could be at the end of the current interglacial where we can optimistically expect temperatures to drop by 6° ~ 10°C in 20 years and stay that way for 100,000 years.

Can you say food wars?

I don't buy this crap any more than the glowbull warming.

The orange ball in the sky has everything to do with the weather and it is it that has cycles. We know a great deal about them, but there is so much more to be found out and as we learn more, these weather BS scenarios will be trashcanned.

Sooner or later that is going to happen...

The fact is typical interglacial periods are around 11,000 years if I remember correctly and we are past that point already...

And it certainly appears the sun may have entered a new lower energy state. Still very few sun spots...

IOW, yes it is clear that things are getting colder, but you still need to submit to our control scheme. I see the professor knows where his bread is buttered.

Well if you noticed, there’s no information as to what causes the “natural cycles”. Also note that magically the northern and southern hemispheres are separate systems but linked in these cycles in some unstated way.

The common factor may well be the sun.

They’ll find a way, I’m sure. Probably “particulate pollution” or some such.

I want the entire GOP infrastructure , RNC, Senate , House and opinion papers journals to demand without ceasing, the end of this climate baloney , the EPA rules, the CIA charting polar bears et al, and in all 50 states the immediate resumption of drilling oil, natural gas, coal, and building safe nuclear plants. Make it a barrage of criticism against the Dems because they are the ones who are holding drilling up and allowing enviro whack jobs to rule this nation. Enough.

I haven't seen anyone mention the obvious question yet:

Where were the global warming "scientists" who were forecasting this 30-year cooling period before it began? The answer, of course, is that there were none. This cooling trend has caught them completely by surprise, which should cast considerable doubt on their predictions of global warming, global cooling, or global anything. They just jump on the bandwagon once a surprise trend occurs and presume to explain the reason for it. What ridiculous fools they are.
