‘Winter Is Coming’ Warns The Solar Physicist The Alarmists Tried To Silence
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | August 12, 2016 | JAMES DELINGPOLE

Posted on 08/12/2016 6:15:27 AM PDT by Bratch

Make the most of this summer because it could be your last decent one: winter is coming as the planet enters the most devastating cooling period since the 65-year Maunder Minimum of the 17th and early 18th centuries.

This is the dire forecast of Professor Valentina Zharkova, a solar physicist at Northumbria University, who has based her prediction on sun spot activity – known to be a significant driver of global climate – which is currently very low and likely to get even lower during the next three solar cycles.

She has spoken about her research and her battle to get it taken seriously by the climate establishment in an interview with the Global Warming Policy Forum. You can see it in this short film.

According to Professor Zharkova:

We will see it from 2020 to 2053, when the three next cycles will be very reduced magnetic field of the sun. Basically what happens is these two waves, they separate into the opposite hemispheres and they will not be interacting with each other, which means that resulting magnetic field will drop dramatically nearly to zero. And this will be a similar conditions like in Maunder Minimum.

What will happen to the Earth remains to be seen and predicted because nobody has developed any program or any models of terrestrial response – they are based on this period when the sun has maximum activity — when the sun has these nice fluctuations, and its magnetic field [is] very strong. But we’re approaching to the stage when the magnetic field of the sun is going to be very, very small.

[What will happen to the Earth remains to be seen and predicted]

Good summary of her thesis and of the article.

Is she trying to say the sun is causing global temperature fluctuations? WhooDaThotit?

Yeah, who would have thought that big ball of fire in the sky has anything to do with the temperatures about the solar system. That CO2 menace is far more important.

I’ve got a hunch that contrary to the popular hysteria, cold is worse than hot - seeing as we need warmth and sun to grow food.

The aunder and Dalton minima were both accompanied by famine. It is arguable that the French Revolution was due to the Maunder Minimum. The French peasantry really was starving.

OK people we need to get organized right now and fend this off. ManBearPig has given is the guideline how to this. We all need to be together and get this done!!!!


Get those Charcoal grills fired up

Burn COAL CONSTANTLY!!!!

Buy huge belching SUVS -- remove those catalytic converters too!!!

Start feeding cows as many beans as possible!! We need them at fart maximum!!


We can head this off people by warming this planet faster than the sun can cool it!!!

A chemistry professor in college once explained to us why a particular part ofthe carbon theory of global heating was not in accordance with the laws of chemistry.

I am not a chemist, so I won’t try to recap it.

That’s crazy talk. What the Hell has the sun got to do with climate? We all know that climate is caused by SUVs.

This is MASSIVELY bad news because colder winters means much-reduced agricultural production. And that could result in massive famines that could seriously decimate the population of higher mammals--including humans.

APOSTATE! HEATHEN! UNBELIEVER! REPROBATE!

No scientific pronouncements may be made without proper application through the temple of the goddess of Consensus. Take it back, lest we report you to the Consensus Reeducation Action Program. Trust me, you don’t want to go to CRAP!
