Earth could be plunged into mini Ice Age - and it could REVERSE global warming An Ice Age is potentially coming and scientists have claimed it could reverse damage from global warming. Currently, we are in the solar maximum, but in 2021, the temperatures given off from the Sun will begin dropping as we enter the solar minimum. A team led by Prof Zharkova has predicted there will be a massive decrease in magnetic waves for the next three cycles lasting 33 years. She added any global warming damage that is undone will be instantly reversed again when the next solar maximum begins in the 2050s. ---------------------------------------- Quite a few people thinking a decrease in magnetic waves in the next few solar cycles will lead to a really small number of sunspots not seen since the Maunder Minimum. My own view is we are probably entering a Dalton minimum like period now until we see what solar cycle 25 (which should begin in 2019 sometime according to most predictions) and the beginning of solar cycle 26 does. I think looking at the past solar sunspot charts this winter will go down as the beginning of this period when its recognized many years later but that things will get crazy enough by the 20/21 winter that the man made global warming crowd will be forced to start saying all kinds of nonsense to try and tie it to man made global warming somehow while all kinds of crap is freezing. They used to just try and act like solar cycles don't mean much while trying to erase the medieval warm period with their BS manipulation etc. but I have noticed in some more recent articles a few of the clowns admit it could change things a little but not override man's stuff. We are coming out of a grand maxima in solar activity now which lasted a good part of the 20th century.
