Skip to comments.New Ice Age 'to begin in 2014'

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?

What shall we do when the ivory tower entitlement zombies come beconing from the cities?

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.

That gives me a couple of years to learn how to knit a sweater.
