Earth Heading for 'Mini Ice age' Within 15 Years
This is of course a long cycle phenomena that is capable of dropping solar radiation. We had posited a long cycle global shift in the Southern Ocean current as a climate driver but it is not able to drop solar radiation and unlikely to prove up very soon either.
This one is much too soon and much more often as well. If truly cyclical then the time space of 2030 to 1645 is 400 years or so. That should mean that 1245 AD, 845 AD, 445 AD and 45 AD all were approximates for major cooling periods. It is not completely clear that this is so. 445 AD is a century early and 45AD is simply not close.
So i am going to take a rain check on the proximate effect of these apparent cycles and again we may need centuries of data to shake it all out. At least we now have a solar long cycle driven by the eleven year cycle of sun spots. It is likely just too early to be brave.
I do expect modest cooling though for the next decade and not global warming as everyone else appears to be touting still.
