Physicist Predicts Imminent Global Cooling

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 6, 2015

Many are focused on the man-made global warming theory, some because they are true believers and others for less honorable reasons.  There are also esteem scientists that do not buy in to that popular theory.

Astronomynow.com recently published an article Diminishing solar activity may bring new Ice Age by 2030 that offers a very different view on impending climate change.  This article not only questions the theory of man-made climate, but predicts a significant and potentially cataclysmic cold spell within the next 15 years.

Physicist Dr. Helen Popova of the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics and of the Faculty of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University proffers the view that periodic changes in solar activity have historically been a major cause of climate change.  Specifically, previous global cooling’s have correlated with the periodic changes in solar activity; i.e. the amount of sunspots.

coldAccording to Dr. Popova, the solar activity results in significant changes in electromagnetic radiation from the Sun.  This includes a 11 and 90 year cycles.  Popova presents evidence that the “Little Ice Age” that occurred in the 17th century coincided with a significant drop off in sunspot activity, something she predicts will reoccur within the next 15 years.

Dr. Popova position is theoretical, as is the man-made global warming theory that is based on computer modeling.  However, Popova makes a compelling case to question the man-made global warming theory stating:

“There is no strong evidence, that global warming is caused by human activity.  The study of deuterium in the Antarctic showed that there were five global warmings and four Ice Ages for the past 400 thousand years.  People first appeared on the Earth about 60 thousand years ago.  However, even if human activities influence the climate, we can say, that the Sun with the new minimum gives humanity more time or a second chance to reduce their industrial emissions and to prepare, when the Sun will return to normal activity”.

If man’s use of carbon-based fossil fuels is indeed the cause of global warming, it is problematic for the environment.  However, the proponents of the man-made global warming theory have not offered solutions that would significantly decrease the amount of carbon exhaust created.  More problematic, the suggested feel-good steps suggested will significantly increase the cost of energy and food creating significant hardship for mankind, especially in poorer countries.

While it is hard to predict the consequences, both positive and negative, of global warming, it is easier to predict consequences that would result from another Little Ice Age; i.e. significant decreases in man’s ability to produce food, as well as increased demand for energy.

    It is not a coincidence that the Russians and the Chinese are taking aggressive action militarily, politically and industrially (Russia’s in the Arctic, the Baltics and Syria, for example) to increase their sphere of influence and the production and transportation of all forms of energy in anticipation of period of long term cooling while protecting their economy and agriculture. Mr. Putin, like him or not, is doing what is best for his country.
