The world will soon witness a “mini-ice age” rather than global warming, as solar output has been declining in recent years, a Russian scientist told RIA Novosti Friday. “During the past 17 years global temperatures have not been rising, temperatures have stabilized. There has been no warming since 1997.
The number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise, and scientists cannot seem to explain why this is happening. In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014. In recent months, we have seen major volcanoes roar to life in Russia, Peru, Hawaii, Reunion Island, Indonesia, and all over Alaska.
