British newspaper publishes prediction
of coming ice age


13 Nov 08 – “Scientists now say global warming is not the problem. We are actually heading for the next Ice Age, they claim. British and Canadian experts warned the big freeze could bury the east of Britain in 6,000ft of ice.

“Most of Scotland, Northern Ireland and England could be covered in 3,000ft-thick ice fields. The expanses could reach 6,000ft from Aberdeen to Kent -towering above Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest mountain. And what's more, the experts blame the global change on falling - rather than climbing - levels of greenhouse gases.

              Falling levels of greenhouse gasses! That’s interesting. I thought
              there was supposed to be a consensus.

“Lead author Thomas Crowley from the University of Edinburgh and Canadian colleague William Hyde say that currently vilified greenhouse gases - such as carbon dioxide- could actually be the key to averting the chill. The warning, published in the authoritative journal Nature, is based on records of tiny marine fossils and the earth’s shifting orbit. 

“The Earth has seen dramatic climate fluctuations – veering between cold and warm extremes - over the past three million years, the researchers say. 

“And changes in the Earth’s orbit and slowly falling levels of carbon dioxide are the cause.

               Wait. Changes in the Earth’s orbit? Do they mean that this might be
               connected to a natural cycle?

“The team says we are approaching a turning point, in the next 10,000 to 100,000 years, which will lead to the new ice sheets smothering much of Europe, Asia and South America. 

              I think they're off on their timing by 10,000 to 100,000 years, but what's
              a few years among friends.

“The theory, which is based on computer models, suggests ice sheets will also slash sea levels by up to 300m, so Russia and Alaska will be connected by land.

“The North Sea will become part of a huge glacier stretching from Holland and Scandinavia to the Russian Far East.”

               Except for the timing, this is what I’ve been saying all along.
               Kudos to the scientists for daring to publish this.
               Kudos to Nature for daring to publish this.
               Kudos to the Daily Mail for daring to publish this.
