The Ice Age Cometh

A Russian Astronomer from St Petersberg (Russia, not Florida) is predicting a mini Ice Age to occur in the middle of this century. (Does Al know?) Khabibullo Abdusamatov, pronounced Khabibullo Abdusamatov, says that the coldest period will occur 15 to 20 years after a major solar output decline between 2035 and 2045... so there's plenty of time to pick up those cross-country skis.

Dramatic changes in the earth's surface temperatures are an ordinary phenomenon, not an anomaly, he said, and result from variations in the sun's energy output and ultraviolet radiation... well, it's caused by that and your SUV.

By the way, this story is from UPI... (evidently someone didn't get the memo.)

It goes on:
The Northern Hemisphere's most recent cool-down period occurred between 1645 and 1705. The resulting period, known as the Little Ice Age, left canals in the Netherlands frozen solid and forced people in Greenland to abandon their houses to glaciers, the scientist said.

It sounds as if the Canadians may be coming here and we'll be putting them up in our spare rooms. (I'll take Anne Murray... she can sing me a love song... and rock me in her arms... etc.)

I know this is just one man's opinion, but to me it makes more since to me than Al Gore and all the other nuts that hate Capitalism.

Thanks for the post. My favorite part of it was your help with the pronunciation of Mr. or Ms. Khabibullo Abdusamatov. I'm thinking that I will name my next child that...first and middle name. You can just follow us around and pronounce it for everyone.

I wonder what explanation Al Gore will have for this one?

Christina,

It's all global warming. Look at the movie The Day After Tomorrow. The big freeze in New York was caused by global warming.

Besides, no matter what goes wrong, it's all President Bush's fault. And we should elect Al Gore, so he can fix all the problems that President Bush has caused.

That's Al Gore's explanation...

This made me laugh ouloud. Whenever someone says tha perhaps we will have another ice age the far left enviro's say that global warming will cause it. Before that it was Global Thermonuclear War. The reality is that smart scientists that actally apply teh scientific method of analysis believe that these things are cyclical in nature. But the Alarmists and their socialist buddies want to remove the ability to act and think from the masses to their benefit.
