Climatologists: Global Cooling On The Horizon
January 31, 2012 by Sam Rolley
Global warming alarmist Al Gore may be sweating following the release of new temperature data showing that the planet has not warmed in the past 15 years and may, in fact, be heading for a mini ice age.
Data issued last week by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit based on figures from 30,000 climate measuring stations confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures actually ended in 1997, according to Daily Mail.
NASA scientists say that the sun-cycles that have resulted in the increased number of sunspots are weakening, and the next cycle—Cycle 25—which is expected to peak in 2022, will be weaker than the last and result in a drop in temperatures.
Climate scientists told The Mail on Sunday that, after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century, the sun is now heading towards a ‘grand minimum’ in its output, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food. The mini ice age the planet could be headed for could reportedly rival a 70-year temperature drop in the 17th Century that froze the River Thames in London during winters.
