New Ice Age 'to begin in 2014'
World Net Daily ^ | May 17, 2010 | Jerome R. Corsi

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.

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.

I guess in Russia you can get more grant money forecasting a new ice age rather than global warming.

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.

Crops don’t grow without warmth and sunlight. Global warming is not the threat to food production that global cooling would be.

Actually that's only partially true. European famines were primarily the result of trying to grow grains in an uncooperative climate. By the end of the little ice age they had finally moved away from crops that just didn't work to crops that did well in cool wet summers. Today we have the advantage of far more tolerant strains of corn and wheat etc. We also have the advantage of their mistakes.

As far as my gardening goes, I've gone back to the things I learned from my great grandmother. I'm planting a garden full of fast producers that produce more than one crop per summer. Durable producers that can overwinter in the ground and greens that are tolerant of cool wet summers.

The last couple of years have been disasterous for growing tomatoes in Michigan. I'm still growing them but they're going in pots so they can come inside if need be.

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?
Joe: Yes.
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.

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.

I'm going to say the same thing about this, as I say about the global warming alarmists...if they can't predict my weather with any accuracy three days out, how in the world are they going to predict my weather three years out?

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.
