  Newly translated Russian paper says that a new ice age is the real threat

Grand Minimum of the Total Solar Irradiance Leads to the Little Ice Age

Habibullo Abdussamatov  


Significant climate variations during the past 7.5 millennia indicate that bicentennial quasi-periodic TSI variations define a corresponding cyclic mechanism of climatic changes from global warmings to Little Ice Ages and set the timescales of practically all physical processes taking place in the Sun-Earth system. Quasi-bicentennial cyclic variations of the TSI entering the Earth’s upper atmosphere are the main fundamental cause of corresponding alternations of climate variations. At the same time, more long-term variations of the annual average of the TSI due to changes in the shape of the Earth's orbit, inclination of the Earth's axis relative to its orbital plane, and precession, known as the astronomical Milankovitch cycles, together with the subsequent feedback effects, lead to the Big Glacial Periods (with the period of about 100,000 years).

In my own research, I came to believe that a new ice age, if anything, was more likely, but a decade ago or so. Then I found the Russians were already there, and ahead of me, and fully beginning to implement plans to invest for global cooling. As with me, however, they don't believe it has anything to do with man. It is probably the way the sun is functioning, and some other odd fundamentals. Or at least that is what I got the last time I looked around... been a few years if I try to keep up, a bit, once or twice a year.

But as to ice age? I think these fear mongers need to shut up, do real research that isn't based on politics (i.e. doesn't support statism in the U.S. and Europe), and listen to those who have looked at what is going on. Cooling, sure, but probably just 30 to 250 years, not enough for an ice age to form, probably. Gah! Idiots!

I've mentioned this Milankovitch cycles in the past, it also goes by another name that escapes me now.

Google "Milankovitch cycles" and there are explanations, images, Geology articles and here is a

How Milankovicth cycles can *theoretically* change Earth's current orbit and result in cycles of glaciation and warmer periods.
