We're on a Slippery Slope:
Ice Age Cometh in 5 Years
Great commentary by Philip Brennan
(And he mentions “Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps.” :-)


4 Feb 09 - (Excerpts) Unless I'm grievously mistaken, we are about to go extinct. Soon.

In 1997 I warned that we are approaching the onset of a new ice age. I wrote that the record shows that ice ages are proceeded by a period of some 20 years, and that as the end of that period approaches things get very unpleasant.

Spring and fall will disappear, summers will be short and winters longer and increasingly more frigid.

That, however, is only part of the story. Along with the cooling of the planet will come a series of increasingly violent natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of a size and fury unmatched in human history. Or a global repeat of the Tunguska event in 1908 - a probable natural nuclear explosion in Siberia that had the force of 1000 Hiroshima atom bombs. And then we will go the way of the dinosaurs.

That's the way nature has always set the stage for 90,000 years of glaciation. And nobody survives. This planet has seen a series of extinctions.  As Robert W. Felix has written in his extraordinary  new book, "Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps" (Sugarhouse Publishing) the extinctions are followed by ice ages and then 90,000 years later by the sudden appearance of entirely new species which appear whole and complete and survive until the next extinction heralds a new ice age. According to Felix, that's the way we evolved, not by slow Darwinian steps, but by a series of total transformations.

He quotes paleontologist Robert Bakker as observing that "The idea of slow gradual, inperceptual evolution in wrong, the fossil facts do not read that away." Mass extinctions always come suddenly, without warning, he adds, noting that the population is then immediately replaced with entirely different species with no forerunners.

It would seem that God created us step by step, with each extinction followed by the appearance of a new and vastly improved humanoid species which lasted until a new extinction prior to the onset of an ice age.

Until it became clear that there were big bucks to be made in climbing aboard the global warming gravy train, most scientific organizations such as the National Academy of Sciences were warning that we were on the verge of a new ice age.

In 1975, for example the Academy published "Understanding Climate Change." On page 181 they wrote: "The present interglacial interval — which has now lasted for about 10,000 years — represents a climatic regime that is relatively rare during the past million years, most of which has been occupied by colder, glacial regimes. Only during about 8 percent of the past 700,000 years has the earth experienced climates as warm or warmer than the present.

"The penultimate interglacial age began about 125,000 years ago, and lasted for approximately 10,000 years. Similar interglacial ages — each lasting 10,000 plus or minus 2000 years and each followed by a glacial maximum — have occurred on the average every 100,000 years during at least the past half-million years.

“During this period, fluctuations of the northern hemisphere ice sheets caused sea level variations of the order of 100 meters."

On page 189, the question is asked: "When will the present interglacial [period] end?

"Few paleoclimatoligists would dispute that the prominent warm periods (or interglacials) that have followed each of the terminations of the major glaciations have had durations of 10,000

A study prepared for the 95th Congress in 1978 agreed with the National Academy of Sciences position as explained in the above-quoted study. The document “Weather Modification: Programs, Problems, Policy and Potential” warned: "In geological prospective, the case for cooling is strong ... If this interglacial age lasts no longer than a dozen earlier ones in the past million years, as recorded in deep sea sediments, we may reasonably suppose the world is about due to slide into the next ice age."

No a single thing has emerged that challenged those assertions. They remain as valid now as they were in 1975. We are at the end of an age and all hell is about to break loose.

I hope I'm mistaken, but I would suggest that we have about 5 years left.
