Will we soon be begging for global warming?
by Terrence Aym
Worried geologists and climatologists are crunching the numbers and the totals they're arriving at equals the sum of all fears...
A new Ice Age is looming and the only debate remaining is whether the Earth has already slipped into one or is it about to occur?
Core samples reveal bleak future
During the last century, geologists obtained deep-ocean core samples from the bottom of the Pacific. Upon analysis of those cores they were able to confirm that the cycles of Ice Ages occur with regularity. For the last 800,000 years an Ice Age starts, lasts 100,000 years, and then is interrupted by what's known as an
interglacial period (a stretch of warmer years between Ice Ages). Interglacial periods last about 10,000 years and then abruptly come to an end.
What this means—at least during the past 800,000 years—is the normal climate of the Earth is an Ice Age.
The science of climate cycles was brought to the fore by a Serbian civil engineer and mathematician named Milutin Milankovic. The data he gathered on climate cycles, Ice Ages and Interglacial periods became known as the Milankovic Theory.
At the present time we are at the very end of the last interglacial period. The warm-up lasted about 10,500 years and the Earth is now due to fall back into a 100,000 year Ice Age.
Astrophysicist and meteorologist Piers Richard Corbyn who established Weather Action has made the case of the Ice Age and its social, agricultural and political ramifications. In a recent video he explains why winters will now be the coldest in centuries.
Other top scientists in the disciplines of geology, ecology, meteorology, astrophysics, and heliology [Down loadable list] are predicting that the two major cooling cycles are converging—the short term and long term Ice Ages—and Earth has just entered the beginnings of the dangerous cooling.
