Russian Scientist: World Facing ‘Mini-Ice Age’ Rather Than Global Warming

Ice Storm

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 power of solar irradiance has decreased consistently since 1990 and is still rapidly declining. Since 1990, the Sun has not been warming the Earth as in the past,” said Habibullo Abdussamatov, an astrophysicist and head of space research at St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory.

According to Abdussamatov, our planet may enter what he calls “a mini-ice age” at the beginning of next year.

“The ‘mini-ice age’ is associated with a change in the power of solar output and has a quasi-period of some 200 years. Roughly speaking, two centuries, plus-minus 70 years,” he told RIA Novosti.

He noted that the temperatures usually fall by about 1 -1.5°C during so-called mini-ice ages.

  1. If one understood “Macro cyclical theory” it would be obvious that we are ending the cycle of weather stability which leads to weather instability. The whole thing of “climate change” is merely the immoral fleecing the undereducated. All of this would not be so important if some of the other major cycles were not entering their low point also, namely, the economic cycle, the social cycle and the geologic cycle. This confluence of negative cyclical aspects will be devastating to the unprepared. Refer to “The Louis Feinberg Theory of Macro-cyclical Activity”. Remember, the future belongs to the prepared!
