Scientists are all seemingly on the same page for once and declaring that the sun’s decreased output could fling Earth into a mini ice age. The scientists determined, based on 20 years of observations and collected data, that the sun will be nearly seven percent cooler and dimmer by 2050 causing a mini ice age.
According to Money Control, a research team based at the University of California in San Diego believe that they have figured out a way to track the sun’s 11-year-cycle. Our sun goes through an 11-year-cycle where it experiences active and rather quiet periods, known as the solar maximum and solar minimum. Now, the researchers believe they have worked out when the next solar minimum could occur.
During a solar minimum, the sun’s magnetism decreases, fewer sunspots form, and less ultraviolet radiation actually makes it to the surface of planet Earth. These conditions mean the sun’s surface appears clearer and becomes dimmer.
According to the study, conditions in the next cold period labeled as a “grand minimum”, could be similar to those experienced in Europe in the middle of the 17th century. Back then, the River Thames froze as a result of the extremely low temperatures. Low temperatures also caused the Baltic Sea to freeze in 1968. Scientists claim that the period, known as the ‘Maunder Minimum’ was similar to a mini ice age. The head of the research team, Dan Lubin, believes we may experience even worse conditions in 2050.
“This whole global warming fiasco had nothing to do with global warming,” said Joe Joseph during The Daily Sheeple’s News Shot. “It was to prepare the elite for the coming ice age.”
“Which is exactly what we’ve been seeing if you observe what’s going on in the background. ” Joseph continues. “Folks, the [sic] are so many things that are going on in plain sight that we don’t see because we’re flooded with all of this information, and all of this input our lives have been so overly complicated by the array of crap that we’ve just surrounded ourselves with…it’s no surprise that we don’t see what’s actually going on right in front of our faces,” he said.
Scientists estimates claim that the grand minimum would most likely cool the earth by about 0.25 percent between 2020 and 2070. As a result, the surface of the earth would cool by up to several tenths of a degree Celsius. The study said that when the sun’s energy is reduced, the first thing that occurs is the thinning of the stratospheric ozone layer. “That thinning, in turn, changes the temperature structure of the stratosphere, which then changes the dynamics of the lower atmosphere, especially wind and weather patterns,” scientists noted.
But Joseph breaks it down simply. “The sun is cooling down,” he said. “The sun is going quiet, and because the sun is going quiet, it is having effects on our planet and the other planets around us.” This begs the question: are we prepared for another ice age?
