Sep 10 - In the Greek myth about Cassandra, she could foresee the
future, but no one believed her warnings. Her name is believed to be
derived from the words for beauty and the sun.
Any number of solar scientists and others are warning that the Earth is
on the brink of a new Ice Age at worst, a mini ice age at best. Dr.
Achim Brauer of the German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam
has concluded that the next Ice Age will come on so swiftly that in
barely a year much of the northern hemisphere will be incased in ice and
The Little Ice Age from around 1300 to 1850 lasted long enough to
transform European society and have a profound affect on the histories
of America and France. In England, they went from growing grapes to
skating on a completely frozen Thames.
All the signs are in place and throughout the northern hemisphere
nations, their leaders prattle on about global warming, clean energy,
endangered species, and all the other environmental foolishness without
once casting an eye toward the source of all climate on Earth, the Sun!
While the warmists were trying to stir up hysteria over an Earth whose
temperature was suppose to rise dramatically, Nature had other plans.
For the past decade the magnetic field that triggers sunspots, magnetic
storms on the face of the Sun, has been steadily declining and, with it,
so has the overall temperature of planet Earth.
No matter what august figure blathers about climate change these days,
they are either an ignorant fool or a charlatan seeking to enrich
himself by one scheme or another. The situation for the warmists has
become so dire that even the science advisor to the President, Dr. John
Holdren, wants to change the terminology of global warming to “global
climate disruption”, admitting the former is “a dangerous misnomer.”
It’s worse than that. It is a huge fraud, a hoax, a crime intended to
Okay, let’s all forget the millions of words and millions of dollars
spent to convince us that “global warming” was such a sure thing that
any scientist or reasonably intelligent person disputing it was labeled
a denier, but the truth was that the data generated by the computer
models to justify the claim was rigged!
My friend, Robert Felix, author of “Not by Fire, but by Ice”, and editor
IceAgeNow.com, probably knows more about ice ages than anyone on the
planet. In his book, he says “Ice ages begin and end abruptly every
11,500 years.” Guess what? We are now 11,500 years since the last Ice
While idiots run about claiming that humans actually have any affect
whatever on the climate and thus the fate of the Earth, Felix reminds us
that “the Earth is a violent and dangerous place to live. We’re
beginning to realize that mass extinctions have been the rule, rather
than the exception, for the 3.5 billion years that life has existed on
On June 14 in an article published in the
New Scientist by Stuart Clark, he raised the question of why and
where the sunspots of gone. Noting that they ebb and flow in cycles
lasting about eleven years, Stuart said, “But for the last two years,
the sunspots have mostly been missing. Their absence, the most prolonged
in nearly 100 years, has taken even seasoned sun watchers by surprise.”
Not everyone, though. Felix believes we are on the cusp of the next Ice
Age and, frankly, so do I. “This is not the calm before the storm,” says
Felix. “This is the storm.”
If we’re lucky, it may just be a new Little Ice Age, but it could be a
new Ice Age and, if that’s the case, a lot of life on planet Earth is
going to be severely disrupted for a very long, long time.
Even a brief ice age of several hundred years will increase the demand
for the generation of energy to keep us warm. All of a sudden everyone
including the environmentalist liars will be crying out for more coal,
more oil, and more natural gas.
Cassandra is saying bundle up!
