Scientist Predicts New Ice Age
New American ^ | March 30, 2011 | by James Heiser

Posted on 03/30/2011 5:23:41 PM PDT by Islander7

On the heels of the pronouncement by one of the gurus of global warming that any decrease in the earth’s temperature could be a thousand years away, another scientist has stepped forward with the warning that a new Ice Age could be right around the corner. Professor Tim Flannery, the head of Australia’s Climate Change Commission, sparked the latest scandal in the global warming community when he recently declared, "If the world as a whole cut all emissions tomorrow, the average temperature of the planet's not going to drop for several hundred years, perhaps over 1000 years." As reported previously for The New American, Prof. Flannery has endeavored to ameliorate the effects of his comment by claiming that temperatures would begin to drop by the end of the century, but his millenarian prognostications served to highlight the ineffectiveness — even insignificance — of the proposed draconian reductions in the world’s industrial activity.

As the global warming theory has withered under public scrutiny in the aftermath of the Climategate and Glaciergate scandals, the theory’s proponents have been dashing around looking for a way to push their agenda. Last year, Holdren tried to adjust the language of the climate change debate by promoting a new terminology of “global climate disruption.” The cultivated ambiguity of Holdren’s new phraseology permits virtually any anomalous weather activity to constitute “proof” of their theory—rendering the theory incapable of being falsified, which is usually a fine indicator of pseudoscience.

As have I since about 2000 or so! I just hope I’m wrong and it is only a minor cooling, and not a REAL ice age that we are overdue for.

I remember he said that on "In Search Of" IIRC. BTW, I live just west of Pittsburgh, the glaciers got so close to me that if they had cars and highways then, I could take a 15 to 20 minute trip North on I-79 or Route 19 and see them. They got as far as Ellwood City past the I-80 corridor. It would be kind of cool, if I had a wife and kids, take them up there for a picnic. B-)

I am in Texas too, and I vote for global cooling! I don't know how much more heat I can stand. You want bananas? Even Houston has too much winter to grow bananas, stop and think how long summer would have to be to grow bananas in Dallas.

Here in Wisconsin the Woooly Mammoths, Woooly Rhinos, and Sabertooth are returning. Gotta get new loads to bring them down. Can see the Ice Cap in the far distance ... getting closer.

Fire and Ice(written 1920)

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

It would be interesting to see what ancient civilizations turn up (the inundated ruins thereof) along various coastlines as the oceans recede and the polar ice caps expand.

Be glad there are no more Sabretooth(or smiladon)running around, the libs would want to plant them all over the country to re-introduce them to America.

Real ice ages had cosmic causes and centuries worth of warning. There is nothing like that on the horizen at all. Now, a LITTLE ICE AGE such as prevailed from around the time of Joan of Arc until around the mid 1800s is just a function of how stars operate, and the last three or four years actually could lead one to think we might be headed into another one of those.

If you think there is any truth to the most recent article in National Geographic, the biggest danger from elevated CO2 is not warming, but rather the acidification of the world’s oceans. If you have read it, any thoughts on that issue?

But there are! They follow the mammoth herds as they run before the advancing Ice Cap. I think the big cats cleared out the coyotes also ...

The earth is the most perfectly created balance & buffered system, more so than any man is capable of imagining.

Gen 8:22
“As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.”

Here we go again. We went full-circle, it seems. From 'New Ice Age' (in the 1970's), to 'global warming', and now back to a 'new ice age' once again. The solution? As ever, its a tyrannical Marxist world wide government. Now, why am I not surprised?

Zero. They’re full of it. The mass of the oceans is orders of magnitude greater than the mass of the atmosphere, and the CO2 level has risen (this is based on proxy data) by perhaps 100 parts per million since 1850 — and hasn’t risen much of that 100 ppm since direct measurements (apples-apples, oranges-oranges) started to be systematic and more or less global in the early 1970s.

That’s because the CO2 rise is largely a consequence of the end of the Little Ice Age, rather than having very much to do with the industrialization of the world, assuming of course that the non-direct measurements of historical CO2 levels is on the nose.

Regardless, the mass of the oceans is *still* orders of magnitude greater than the mass of the atmosphere, IOW, as I opened with, they’re full of it.
