Skip to comments.New Ice Age 'to begin in 2014'
Posted on 05/18/2010 7:13:40 AM PDT by conservativegramma
CHICAGO A new "Little Ice Age" could begin in just four years, predicted Habibullo Abdussamatov, the head of space research at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia.
Abdussamatov was speaking yesterday at the Heartland Institute's Fourth International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago, which began Sunday and ends today.
The Little Ice Age, which occurred after an era known in scientific circles as the Medieval Warm Period, is typically defined as a period of about 200 years, beginning around 1650 and extending through 1850.
In the first of a two-part video WND recorded at the conference, Abdussamatov explained that average annual sun activity has experienced an accelerated decrease since the 1990s. In 2005-2008, he said, the earth reached the maximum of the recent observed global-warming trend.
In Part 2 of the video, Abdussamatov further explained that through 2014 the earth will go through a series of unstable variations in which global temperature will oscillate around the maximum reached in the years 1998-2005.
In 2003-2005, Abdussamatov predicted a reduction of sunspot activity that would reach a new minimum in 2042, resulting in a deep global temperature minimum in the years 2055-2060.
"My predictions are looking better and better with each passing year," Abdussamatov declared.

If the last couple of summers are any indication, its going to be here sooner than that.
We sold our 8 horse snow monster when we left Minnesota.
Damn this global warming!
Crops don’t grow without warmth and sunlight. Global warming is not the threat to food production that global cooling would be. Naturally, the feckless “experts,” who live off grants from even more feckless governments around the globe, will be the last to figure it out.
Aren’t three “Ice Age” movies enough?
I guess in Russia you can get more grant money forecasting a new ice age rather than global warming.
Dang... I better start chopping firewood now...
You done it, Al - You done' it!
So this means Ray Romano and John Leguizamo have job security?
Ice age in 2014? Who will be around to care after 12/21/2012. ;-)
Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012)
A fourth film was announced by Twentieth Century Fox on May 5, 2010 with the tentative title Ice Age: Continental Drift. It is scheduled to be released in 3D on July 13, 2012.
I need a real summer.
Too bad there’s no carbon in snow, we could set up a snowball trading scheme and make millions.
So does this mean that now is not a good time to move to Iowa?
“Crops dont grow without warmth and sunlight. Global warming is not the threat to food production that global cooling would be. Naturally, the feckless experts, who live off grants from even more feckless governments around the globe, will be the last to figure it out. “
What shall we do when the ivory tower entitlement zombies come beconing from the cities?
Question: If you feed (liberal)human to pigs are the pigs safe to eat later?
Considering that these people have problems telling me if it is even going to rain in the next few days accurately, you’ll have to excuse me if I take this with a healthy grain of salt.
Besides, the world is predicted to end in 2012, so I am not worried.
Oh it’s coming, it’ll be so hot you could fry
an egg on a rioters head.
A very cool spring here in Ga.
"It's what plants crave."
That gives me a couple of years to learn how to knit a sweater.
Cool. I love Scrat. Him and that acorn are a hoot.
But, I was already planning for a few palm trees in my front yard. WTF?
“It’s what plants crave.”
It’s got electrolytes!
Joe: For the last time, I’m pretty sure what’s killing the crops is this Brawndo stuff.
Secretary of State: But Brawndo’s got what plants crave. It’s got electrolytes.
Attorney General: So wait a minute. What you’re saying is, you want us to put WATER on the crops?
Attorney General: Water?? Like, outta the toilet?
Joe: Well, I mean... It doesn’t have to be out of the toilet. But yeah, that’s the idea.
Secretary of State: But Brawndo’s got what plants crave.
Attorney General: Yeah, it’s got electrolytes.
Joe: Okay, look. The plants aren’t growing. So I’m pretty sure that this Brawndo stuff’s not working. Now I’m no botanist, but I do know that if you put water on plants they grow.
Secretary of Energy: Well, I never seen no plants grow outta no toilet.
Secretary of State: Hey, that’s good! You sure YOU ain’t the smartest guy in the world?!
Joe: Okay, look. You want to solve this problem and I want to get my pardon. So why don’t we just try it, okay, and not worry about what plants crave?
Attorney General: But Brawndo’s GOT what plants crave.
Secretary of Energy: Yeah. It’s got electrolytes.
Joe: What ARE “electrolytes”? Do any of you even know?
Secretary of State: It’s what they use to make Brawndo.
Joe: Yeah, but WHY do they use them to make Brawndo?!
Secretary of Defense: Cuz Brawndo’s got electrolytes.
The feckless “experts” will still blame it on AGW, or Man-Made Climate Change, or Humanity Is a Virus Infecting the Earth Mother Goddess Gaia, or capitalism, or George W. Bush.

Is THIS the ‘ice age’ that they told us was upon us back in 1971? I’ve always wondered what was taking it so long...
maybe alGore could make a movie about the Ice Age!
(Can't have it both ways, Al: either mankind is driving the whether or he isn't.)
Geez, there are a bunch of predictions today.
If we add them all up, by 2014 America will be a ice-covered, Republican-controlled country with 43% unemployment and a Dow around 923.
Oh, and the world will have ended anyway.
The Fimbul Winter?
Seriously, I hope so.
Last year, the only good part was that we didn’t run the AC very much.
This year we still have the heat on.
A new “Little Ice Age” could begin in just four years, predicted Habibullo Abdussamatov, the head of space research at St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia.
What does this piker know about the weather, al gore said we are all going to melt.
Oh wait, al gore is a snake oil salesman - Never mind.
By the way where is al, have not heard much about this snake oil salesman lately?
I had to look that up.
Although I should not be, I am constantly amazed at the knowledge FReepers hold.
Without saying it directly, you've come awfully close. It doesn't matter what the message is, as long as it's wallet-wrenching or deadly. As long as the message has such a potential, the unscrupulous elite will put it in heads and on the lips and onto the keyboards of their useful idiots to infect the rest of us, to work the evil intent of those elite.
need some parkas and snowshoes
Well, so much for the world ending in 2012.
Except for the volcanos is Iceland, I wouldn’t give a kopeck for his prediction.
Actually it is going to begin on August 17, 2014, at 11:33pm.
He's been busy getting fake doctorate degrees at my alma mater. Which, in a way, is a good thing. Now I don't have to feel guilty about not giving them money.
I just added that to my Outlook calendar.
I would like to see a wrestling match between this Russian and Al Gore. ;0)
There isn't even a real consensus with respect to the cause of the either the last major ice age, or the little mini ice age in the second millennium AD. People have pegged everything from solar activity to ocean currents to subtle shifts in the earth's tilt or orbit of the Sun. Until someone knows conclusively what cause the last ice age(s), they won't have ANY idea when the next one is coming.
Is that GMT?
