“Over the past decade, global temperature on the
Earth has not increased; global warming has ceased, and already there
are signs of the future deep temperature drop.
“We should fear a deep temperature drop -- not
catastrophic global warming. Humanity must survive the serious economic,
social, demographic and political consequences of a global temperature
drop, which will directly affect the national interests of almost all
countries and more than 80% of the population of the Earth.
“Life on earth completely depends on solar radiation, the ultimate source of energy for natural processes.
“In the middle of the nineteenth century, German and Swiss astronomers Heinrich Schwabe and Rudolf Wolf established that the number of spots on the surface of the Sun periodically changes, diminishing from a maximum to a minimum, and then growing again, over a time frame on the order of 11 years. Today, the reconstruction of this time series stretches back to 1611.
“Analyzing the long record of sunspot numbers, the English astronomer Walter Maunder in 1893 came to the conclusion that from 1645 to 1715 sunspots had been generally absent. Over the thirty-year period of the Maunder Minimum, astronomers of the time counted only about 50 spots. Usually, over that length of time, about 50,000 sunspots would appear. Today, it has been established that such minima have repeatedly occurred in the past.
“It is also known that the Maunder Minimum accompanied the coldest phase of a global temperature dip, physically measured in Europe and other regions, the most severe such dip for several millennia, which stretched from the fourteenth to the nineteenth centuries (now known as the Little Ice Age).
“The Earth, after receiving and storing over the twentieth century an anomalously large amount of heat energy, from the 1990's began to return it gradually. The upper layers of the world ocean, completely unexpectedly to climatologists, began to cool in 2003. The heat accumulated by them unfortunately now is running out.
“Over the past decade, global temperature on the Earth has not increased; global warming has ceased, and already there are signs of the future deep temperature drop.
“Meantime the concentration of carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere over these years has grown by more than 4%, and in 2006
many meteorologists predicted that 2007 would be the hottest of the last
decade. This did not occur, although the global temperature of the Earth
would have increased at least 0.1 degree if it depended on the
concentration of carbon dioxide.
“For several years until the beginning in 2013 of a
steady temperature drop, in a phase of instability, temperature will
oscillate around the maximum that has been reached, without further
substantial rise. Changes in climatic conditions will occur unevenly,
depending on latitude. A temperature decrease in the smallest degree
would affect the equatorial regions and strongly influence the temperate
