Ice Age: Back to 18th century?
The Voice of Russia ^ | Feb. 21, 2012 | Igor Siletsky

Posted on 02/21/2012 9:03:48 PM PST by Paul Pierett

In the near future the mankind will face a new ice age not a global warming. That is the forecast which has been made by Habibullo Abdussamatov, the head of Space research laboratory at the Saint Petersburg-based Pulkovo Observatory, who is a well known global warming skeptic. According to him the coming cold will be caused by a decline in solar activity. Last time our planet experienced it in mid 17th century until the early 18th century. Nevertheless most of the climate experts including the colleagues of Abdusamatov do not support his theory.

It is so nice to have some one of great importance verify my Kitchen/TV Room work. It would be nice if NASA, NOAA and the British Royal Society and the MET got a clue.

They’ll start supporting his “theory” when there is money in it for them!

Life continues to imitate the Twilight Zone.

“Imagine, if you will, a world where American scientists push alarmist political propaganda, and the only country where legitimate climate researchers can recieve funding and unbiased peer review is Russia. A place called... the Twilight Zone.”

Doo do doo do doo do doo do...

Good candidate for best darnn response in FR history! Clever, witty & knowledgeable! OOPS, I was just reminded that, that’s the expected standard for the civilized discourse on FR.

Should read: "Nevertheless most of the climate experts including the colleagues of Abdusamatov, all of whom have their own contrary theories, do not support his theory."

This is like saying that vegetarians don't support the nutritionist that claims meat is an easy and effective (and tasty) way to get a wide range of nutrients necessary for human health.

But the Earth's climate is ENTIRELY determined by CO2 levels. There is NO variability in solar output! (/sarc)

Imagine if you will, a place which gets most of its energy from solar power, where the darkness from a storm front can shut down solar energy production across several states for hours, forcing electric companies to maintain conventional power plants to provide 100% backup on hot-standby. Imagine the LUNACY of thinking that this scenario is rational...

I've been monitoring the NASA sunspot cycle projections. At the beginning of February, Hathaway had the model being that Cycle 24 would peak in 2014 at a level close to 100. Last week, on Feb 16, he updated his model to predict the peak occurring in 2013 at a level around 65.

Looking at the trends (and it will take another three months of observations to be sure it's not a blip), it might be the case that we ALREADY had the peak, and this is an unusual short cycle.

My home sits on a gravel bench in a U-shaped valley. Glaciers were here less than 10 millenia ago. Hell, the MacBeth Icefield is a day-hike from here.

I’m hoping for global warming, anthropogenic or otherwise - no colder winters, please!

None. The will be insufficiant sunlight to generate power - think dead of winter. Worse, those solar panels are soaking up heat which is not going to warm the earth and such owners will be considered among the worst of criminals ...

Put down that solar panel before it gets you in real trouble.

In the context of an ice age - it is worth noting that it was estimated that the glaciers during the last Ice Age took only 100 years to form and grow to 2 kilometers high ...

I don’t have the link, but I think it was on FR at one time.

unusual short cycle.

The solar minimums always have longer cycles (along with lower amplitude). The length of the solar cycle, irregardless of amplitude, is a better match to climate than amplitude. Longer = colder.

I would think that the area under the curve is the better match. Although the Dalton Minimum cycles (cycle 5 and 6 in the early 1800's)are twelve years long versus ten years for the Modern Maximum (cycle 19 in the 1950's), the dramatic difference is in the area under the curves.

Excuse I was just daydreaming about how beautiful NYC and San Fransicko would look under a mile of ice. All those libtardcicles might be dug out of the ice one day in the distant future by aliens who scratch their head when they learn the fools were only worried about warming, ala “AI”.
