Eminent geophysicist says world on
of 'mini ice age'
Thinks it has already begun
1 June 11 - "An eminent Mexican geophysicist says that the world may be on the verge of an eighty-year cold period similar to the 'little ice age' experienced by Europe from 1300 to 1800 A.D.," says this article by Matthew Hoffman.
"Víctor Manuel Velasco, of the University of Mexico's Institute of Geophysics, says that recent winter conditions are similar to those of the 'little ice age', and in particular the 'Maunder Minimum,' a period during which sunspot activity dropped significantly," says Hoffman.
"The geophysicist believes that a "mini ice age" began in 2010 which will last between 60 and 80 years," according to a University of Mexico press release describing his views.
"We are talking about the period between 1645 and 1715, which is known as the
Maunder Minimum, a period in which the sunspots practically disappeared from the
surface of the sun, and in which our planet occupied a position similar to which
it has today, with respect to the center of gravity of our [solar] system."
Velasco said in an interview published by the university.
Velasco is one of many scientists who question the conclusions of the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
"It will be nature that demonstrates which theory is the correct one," says Velasco. "However, the Earth is getting colder."
