    Earth heading for 'mini ice age.

    Post by papa_umau on Sat 11 Jul 2015, 1:37 pm

    River Thames could freeze over in 2030s when Northern Hemisphere faces bitterly cold winters, scientists say.

    The earth is 15 years from a "mini ice-age" that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted.

    Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun's activity which they claim produces "unprecedentedly accurate predictions".

    They said fluid movements within the sun, which are thought to create 11-year cycles in the weather, will converge in such a way that temperatures will fall dramatically in the 2030s.

    Solar activity will fall by 60 per cent as two waves of fluid "effectively cancel each other out", according to Prof Valentina Zharkova.

    Well folks, it has happened before in a couple of generations and further back, and here, they say, it is going to happen again.

    Do you believe this, or like the "climate change" deniers, do you not think it will ever happen ?

    Many forecasts of this type do not take account of Mans' activities on the planet. Any Solar activity will be moderated by human interaction with the environment.

    None of these 'predictions' can be taken on their own.

    I would like to think that predictions of this sort and at that high level would take account of man's effect on climate change, and the risk of another mini ice-age.

    Having said that, there is absolutely no doubt that man's abuse of the air, land and sea, WILL contribute to such weather changes as they do already to climate change.
