31 Dec 10 - (Excerpts) -With an Ice Age comes abrupt change, and with
change comes death - sometimes death on a massive scale," says this
article by Terrence Aym.
More of the world's top scientists in the disciplines of geology,
ecology, meteorology, astrophysics, and heliology [pdf
list] are predicting that the two major cooling cycles are
converging - the short term and long term Ice Ages - and Earth has just
entered the beginnings of the dangerous cooling.
When the sun goes quiet after 2012, it's expected to stay quiet for at
least the next 30 to 50 years. During that time, the sun will generate
significantly less heat and the planets - including Earth - will cool
Mass migrations and famines
Now other scientists - including John L. Casey, the Director of the
Space and Science Research Center (see caveat below) - are
warning that people in the coming decades are facing food and fuel
Some northern countries will be abandoned as the ice marches down from
the Arctic; energy production will be interrupted; and shortened growing
periods in the Northern Hemisphere will precipitate mass migrations,
famines, food riots, regional conflicts and a loss of human life that
could be measured on an apocalyptic scale.
During the next 30 months the world's temperatures are predicted to drop
even more dramatically and at a faster clip than the worldwide plunge
recorded during 2007 to 2008.
Sun entering an extended "hibernation period"
According to Casey, "The Earth typically makes adjustments in major
temperature spikes within two to three years. In this case as we cool
down from El Nino, we are dealing with the combined effects of this
planetary thermodynamic normalization and the influence of the more
powerful underlying global temperature downturn brought on by the solar
hibernation.... Analysis shows that food and crop derived fuel will for
the first time, become threatened in the next two and a half years."
Other scientists concur and some see the speed at which the temperatures
will drop as frightening.
Casy's organization has been at the forefront of the climate change
controversy, correctly predicting in advance three important changes in
the climate that many others missed: the end of global warming cycle
(1999), a long term drop in the Earth's temperatures (starting in 2006
to 2007) the unsettling prospect of an historic contraction of the Sun's
energy resulting in a never-before-seen solar hibernation. The
hibernation is now recognized by NASA's Long Range Solar Forecast
through 2022 and as well as the stunning slowdown of sun's activity.
Mini or major Ice Age - either are a disaster
While Casey sees a so-called mini-Ice Age occurring and lasting about 40
to 50 years, others like Robert Felix believes the data is there that
supports a real possibility of a major Ice Age that could last several
thousands of years. Felix believes the Earth's already entered the first
stages of the mini-Ice Age and a bigger one might be close on its heels.
Felix warns: " The next Ice Age could begin any day. Next week, next
month, next year...it's not a question of if, only when. One day you'll
wake up - or you won't wake up, rather - buried beneath nine stories of
snow. It's all part of a dependable, predictable cycle, a natural cycle
that returns like clockwork every 11,500 years."
The last Ice Age happened to end almost exactly 11,500 years ago.
Casey explains that "The present [solar] hibernation is proceeding in
almost lock step as the last one which occurred from 1793 to 1830. If it
continues on present course, while the cold weather impacts on food and
fuel announced today are certainly important, they do not compare with
what is to follow later. At the bottom of the cold cycle of this
hibernation in the late 2020's and 2030's there will likely be years
with devastating to total crop losses in the Canadian and northern US

Although I agree with much of this article - and certainly
appreciate being quoted - I'm inclined to wonder about who or what
the "Space and Science Research Center" actually is.
When I checked on them a few years ago, it appeared that Casey was a
one-man operation working out of a tiny office in Orlando.
There's nothing wrong with being a one-man operation, and there's
nothing wrong with working out of a small office.
However, I'm thinking that the moniker "Space and Science Research
Center" might tend to make people think they're receiving a
not-to-be-questioned pronouncement from a large, well-respected
research facility, and I don't think that's the case.
If you have specific information about the Space and Science
Research Center, I'd be more than happy to post it.
Here's a link to one of their more recent press releases:

It is so interesting that in that post, they
quoted NASA's Hathaway from 2006, that he was predicting a slowdown
of the Sun's conveyer belt. And yet I am reminded of the more recent
article that Hathaway said there is "nothing wrong with the sun".
He knew all along.
Does he know something and is covering it up?
