Ice Age Winter

Published on December 15, 2013

Cold weather is expected to continue through at least the balance of the year in the U.S. Midwest which will keep many river shipping channels frozen and prevent normally smooth transfer of grain, an agricultural meteorologist said on Friday. The Farmers’ Almanac in August, 2013 was using words like “piercing cold,” “bitterly cold” and “biting cold” to describe the upcoming winter.

Based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles, the almanac’s secret formula is largely unchanged since founder David Young published the first almanac in 1818. Modern scientists don’t put much stock in sunspots or tidal action, but the almanac says its forecasts used by readers to plan weddings and plant gardens are correct about 80 percent of the time.

Most modern scientists have lost their objectivity. Quantum physics predicted that and after all, we should know that objective things do not exist because the subjective is always projected onto the objective. The Almanac offers solid advice to farmers exactly because it is based on correct astrophysical principles. It is as scientific as it gets when it comes to dependable weather prediction.

"For rivers to be freezing this early in the year is a bit unusual but I don’t see any relief from that, as a matter of fact after next week another blast of Arctic air is expected," said John Dee, meteorologist for Global Weather Monitoring.

Cairo saw its first snow in years as a cold snap hits Egypt and the rest of the Middle East. This snowstorm named Alexa, brought more misery to thousands of Syrian refugees living in the region, many of whom were unprepared for the cold, brutal conditions.

In Israel, where the storm reportedly brought the heaviest December snowfall since 1953, roads had to be closed and thousands were left without power from the inclement weather.

Whatever may have seemed plausible 10 years ago Global Warming is over and there is no evidence that CO2 ever was, is or will be a driver of world temperatures or climate change – indeed evidence of this relationship is leaning the other way. World temperatures have been generally declining for about 10 years while CO2 is rising rapidly,” writes famous weatherman Piers Corybyn.

We know that small fluctuations in solar activity have a large influence on climate. Subtle connections between the 11-year solar cycle, the stratosphere, and the tropical Pacific Ocean work in sync to generate periodic weather patterns that affect much of the globe, according to research appearing this week in the journal Science. The study can help scientists get an edge on eventually predicting the intensity of certain climate phenomena, such as the Indian monsoon and tropical Pacific rainfall, years in advance,” writes Science Daily.

The NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center has updated their monthly graph set and it is becoming even clearer that we are past solar max, and that solar max has been a dud. “The slump” continues not only in sunspot activity, but also other metrics.

Little Ice Age

Solar activity is now at a 200-year low! Back in July the low activity put us at only 100 year low but things are changing fast in a cooling direction. Solar Cycle #24 was then see to have been off to a sputtering start, and researchers that attended the meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Solar Physics Division earlier that month were divided as to why. “Not only is this the smallest cycle we’ve seen in the space age, it’s the smallest cycle in 100 years,” NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center research scientist David Hathaway. Now in the Wall Street Journal, six months later, he is being quoted as saying, "I would say it is the weakest in 200 years."

David is a global warming proponent who is conceding the dimming sun will neutralize global warming to some extent but he keeps his mouth shut about the volcanic situation. Times of depressed solar activity do correspond with times of global cold. For example, during the 70-year period from 1645 to 1715, few, if any, sunspots were seen, even during expected sunspot maximums. Western Europe entered a climate period known as the “Maunder Minimum” or “Little Ice Age.” Temperatures dropped by 1.8 to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit. Conversely, times of increased solar activity have corresponded with global warning. During the 12th and 13th centuries, the Sun was active, and the European climate was quite mild.

According to NOAA and NASA, the sunspot cycle hit an unusually deep bottom from 2007 to 2009. In fact, in 2008 and 2009, there were almost NO sunspots, a very unusual situation that had not happened for almost a century. Due to the weak solar activity, galactic cosmic rays were at record levels. Solar Maximum: The sun’s record-breaking sleep ended in 2010. In 2011, sunspot counts jumped up.  However, they remained fairly low with a small peak in February of 2012. Throughout 2013, the sun was relatively quiet.

Solar activity and sunspots are minuscule in comparison to what they should be right now. Even in accordance to all NASA’s predictions to date in recent years, solar activity is way off to the low side. We are now facing an extremely low period of solar activity over the coming years and decades. Due to the strong correlation of historical evidence we can conclude that we are sitting right on the cusp of the next ice age or at a minimum, another mini ice-age.

I said in my last global cooling essay people should prepare and take care. This winter is going to freeze the guts out of the global warming crowd, it’s going to drive up the price of energy, people will freeze to death and others will be strapped to the financial wall with the increased cost of heating their homes that leak badly having never been designed for a super cold climate.

Not convinced yet? Too early to call the next ice age?

Over 2000 cold and snow records were set in the USA this past week reports one site on global warming. They show record numbers for low temps at 606, low maximum temps at 1234 and snowfalls at 385 all totaling 2225 records.

We are just warming up to global cooling but we are in danger of going from cooling to dead stone cold. It really does not matter what I or anyone says or predicts. We will be living with the weather day by day whether we like it or not.

One thousand mile long snowstorm to pummel U.S. Northeast is the headline just as I finish this essay. Some might laugh at my warning of the coming age of ice. Nothing about what is happening with the weather can be explained by CO2 global warming theories. If they were in anyway correct we would not be seeing such early sustained cold in the northern hemisphere. The sun is dim and volcanoes are having their say on how much the sun shines down to us on the surface of our earth.

We will all have front row seats on the surface of the planet. It is hard to hide dramatic climate changes but since denial is the watchword of the modern world we will just have to see what is upon us.

    The Maunder Minimum and the Dalton Minimum (Historical + factual periods when sunspots were very few or non existent) both knocked the human population down by at least a third or more, through food shortages brought about mainly through major wet weather and severe cold periods.
    UN Plan (Agenda 21) Backed by Rosthchilds, Bill Gates, George Soros, Bilderberg Group and the Club of Rome = DENY GLOBAL COOLING FOR LONG ENOUGH THAT BY THE TIME PEOPLE NOTICE IT WILL BE TOO LATE.
    Result = A perfect ‘Act of God’ ‘Natural’ and ‘Unforseen’ occurrence which will be blamed for wiping out BILLIONS of people on this planet!
    Depopulation problem SOLVED without you being able to blame the elite for any of it! – Perfect! (Not their fault, ‘Act of God’ you see?)

    How can the sun’s rays warm the earth when being blocked by all the chemtrails? I live in NJ and many days the entire sky is blocked by large swaths of Barium/Aluminum soup being sprayed into our atmosphere. Is this an attempt to deal with global warming by the brilliant government? Or is it an attempt to develop ways to control weather and communications in the various levels of atmosphere? Or a more sinister thought, is it actually a depopulation strategy? What do you think Dr. Sircus?

  • Mark Sircus

    I often get some funny remarks about my global cooling tendencies and I smile each time because when people criticise me they forget to criticise the people I quote….scientists into bedrock rationality…would be nice if things staid exactly the same on the surface of the planet, would be nice for all of us but that does not look like it is the hand of cards we have been dealt.

  • laja

    I have read that scientists say the gulf stream is dead…due to BP and other oil leaks in the Gulf of Mexico. If that is true, it will catapult us into an ice age from my understanding. I am surprised that it was not mentioned in this article.

    • Mark Sircus

      That mostly effects England and Europe and there are so many things to be said we need a book….

    The reality is that the sun is an electromagnetic phenomenon, as indeed are all stars, and not a nuclear fusion reaction, as we have been told. Indeed, Sir Arthur Eddington, the originator of the latter idea, was himself well aware of the inherent difficulties with the theory. But such is man’s desire for a perverse simplicity, even at the expense of truth, that a flawed theory becomes so mainstream that very few remember its uncertain origins.
    Possibly the most obvious way to refute the existing paradigm is to point out that the sun is approximately 5000 degrees at its surface, but 200 million degrees 200 km above this surface; such a temperature inversion from what would be expected can only lead to one conclusion, ie that the sun’s energy arrives at its surface from beyond its environment, not from within it.
    The galaxy is ubiquitously intersected with streams of oftentimes-visible plasma called Birkeland currents; these are the ultimate energy source for the sun’s heat and light.
    “The Electric Universe” w/s will get you back on track as to the real nature of the sun and the stars.
    If the sunspot number goes down, this indicates a reduction in solar electromagnetic field strength; this allows electrically-charged cosmic rays to enter the environment of the earth, as Dr Sircus points out. These cosmic rays seed clouds, much as can be seen in the school laboratory cloud chamber experiment; clouds reflect heat, thus the world cools. But such is the heat capacity of the oceans, and such are the patterns of circulation within them, that this cooling takes decades to become apparent.
    Either way, it is the height of folly to be spraying the atmosphere with toxic chemicals to reflect heat back into space.
    It is therefore possible now to make a case that the sun’s output can be controlled on a daily and in fact a moment-by-moment basis by the One who originally created it, as well as the universe within which it resides.
    Many times, the Children of Israel were told that, depending on their degree of faithfulness to that same Creator, so would their earthly experience be.
    If unfaithful, blight and worm ( the legendary palmerworm ) and famine would be their lot. If faithful, abundance and joy and peace.
    We are living in a time of great wickedness. people have forgotten the immemorial lesson taught to us by the prophets, as they were moved by Almighty God.
    “There is no peace for the wicked”.
    Contrariwise, “Great peace have they which love Thy law, and nothing shall offend them”.

    Herein, the Great Truth which has been forgotten.

  • Lynn McGaha

    Here’s another theory to consider. In 1982, John Hamaker wrote Survival of Civilization, in which he predicted coming extreme weather and an ice age by the 1990s. His timing was off, but otherwise his predictions seem to be prescient.
    His thesis was that burning of grasslands, plowing, deforestation, and modern agriculture practices are leading to demineralization of the soil, which in turn leads to a decrease in biomass and a consequent increased release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This leads to increased flooding, extreme droughts, extreme winds, and hurricanes. Hamaker says nature’s global way of remineralization is glaciation. With interglacial periods lasting 10,000 to 12,000 years, and glacial periods lasting 100,000 years, glaciation seems like a very slow remedy.
    The above is a summary of Hamaker’s work by Jerry Brunetti in his 12/15/13 interview with Dr. Mercola. I was previously convinced by Piers Corbyn that the sun and moon were the main drivers of climate, with carbon dioxide having only a 2-3% impact. But Hamaker’s book might be worth exploring.

    Patrick McGean, I appreciate your work on sulfur. I’m finishing up my first bottle from Patrick Timpone. Amazing to know what goes on in one’s dream world once you start remembering more of them.

    For years I have been telling my wife that anytime something heats up it then cools. Just like a refrigerator or air conditioner creates cold seemingly from heat. Really the heat is just displaced and removed and the cold is left behind. Nature always seeks entropy but mankind thinks they can defeat natures attempts at entropy through technology. Laughable really as technology is so very fragile and not sustainable. We have been breaking cold record after cold record in my part of the U.S. and winter is not officially here yet. Interesting times. Thanks for the post.

  • Patrick McGean

    Mark, your discussion left out the Sun reflecting crud in the upper atmosphere. Global cooling happens when atmospheric warming occurs, it is much like a filter absorbing the energy from the Sun before it gets to us. Recent NASA photos show a reddish brown
    haze surrounding the Blue Planet. When records are being set, things are changing and pollution by we the people is causing the change, but blame the Almanac, blame the math of the periodic table but never blame the stupidity of man’s greed.
    The best Christmas to you, your wife, your children and all of the people of Brazil.

      That certainly explains why the Sun is at one of it’s coolest points. Perhaps it is frustrated it’s rays are being repelled by Earth’s Global Warming and has decided to take a little rest. Perhaps this was covered in the article as I have not completed it yet, sorry if such is the case. :/

      The Sun is the largest contributor to the Earths weather, above all else.

      Sun spots & Solar Cycles are are both bringing the suns activity to one of it’s low points in the current Solar Cycle. All based on 11 & 22 year cycles that comprise the entire Solar Cycle.

      I am not a scientist nor do I play one on TV (as far as you know) but I have been reading about Sun Cycles since the mid 80’s (yes, before internet!!)

      Check it out sometime, there are many fascinating stories about the Sun available online these days.

        According to Begich and Manning: brought to light government documents indicating that the military has weather-control technology. When HAARP is eventually built to its full power level, it could create weather effects over entire hemispheres. If one government experiments with the world’s weather patterns, what is done in one place will impact everyone else on the planet. Angels Don’t Play This HAARP explains a principle behind some of Nikola Tesla’s inventions — resonance — which affect planetary systems.
