Global Warming Now Causes More Ice

All winter they have been telling us that ice is melting at -20C, and now experts now say ice forms at higher temperatures – due to an increase of 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 over the past century.

    I am fairly certain that ice becomes significantly harder as CO2 levels spiral upwards at 2ppm each year.
    By 2050, the ice from the arctic will replace industrial diamonds.

    A Russian news paper is claiming MILDER winters? What are they drinking? Frozen vodka?

    And it is not like Russian scientists, free of CAGW Lysankoism, have not been warning the Russian people of the cold period – Little Ice Age – to come.

    “The Earth is heading towards another ice age as solar magnetic activity is set to drop by up to 60 per cent in the next 15 years,” warns new study.

    Experts say that solar activity has not been this low since the Maunder Minimum, a period of low sunspot activity between 1645 and 1715 when the entire Thames froze over. That period is also considered the deepest part of the last “Little Ice Age.” Valentina Zharkova from Northumbria University, who applied this theory to the Sun, says she can predict the affects of solar cycles with 97 per cent accuracy.

    Based on her findings, Ms Zharkova says the next solar cycle is set to peak in 2022, and the cycle after that, Cycle 26, will herald a new ice age.”

    November 17, 2016 – A New Little Ice Age has begun, says Russian scientist

    “In his new book, Evidence-Based Climate Science: ‘Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming, astrophysicist Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov warns that a new Little Ice Age has begun.

    A highly qualified and highly regarded scientist, Dr Abdussamatov is Head of Space Research Laboratory at the Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, Russia.”

    Abstract

    Since 1990, the Sun has been in the declining phase of the quasi-bicentennial variation in total solar irradiance (TSI). The decrease in the portion of TSI absorbed by the Earth since 1990 has remained uncompensated by the Earth’s long-wave radiation into space at the previous high level because of the thermal inertia of the world’s oceans.

    As a result, the Earth has – and will continue to have – a negative average annual energy balance and a long-term adverse thermal condition.

    The quasi-centennial epoch of the new Little Ice Age started at the end 2015 after the maximum phase of solar cycle 24. The start of a solar grand minimum is anticipated in solar cycle 27 ± 1 in 2043 ± 11 and the beginning of phase of deep cooling in the new Little Ice Age in 2060 ± 11.

    The gradual weakening of the Gulf Stream leads to stronger cooling in the zone of its action in western Europe and the eastern parts of the United States and Canada. Quasi-bicentennial cyclic variations of TSI together with successive very important influences of the causal feedback effects are the main fundamental causes of corresponding alternations in climate variation from warming to the Little Ice Age.

      And the Russian weather for the last year backs these scientist up. Russia has seen snow and freezing weather every month in the last year. Since Russia is at the far northern range for food crops this type of weather is very important to Russia.

      Anyone else think this might be one of the reasons why Russia was not about to let the EU grab the ‘Breadbasket of Europe’ aka the Ukraine? I certainly was not surprised and predicted the reason for the site picked for the Winter Olympics was to allow Russia to move troops into place without setting off alarms.

        “Anyone else think this might be one of the reasons why Russia was not about to let the EU grab the ‘Breadbasket of Europe’ aka the Ukraine?”

        This and the fact that Russia’s naval base on the Crimean peninsula is their only warm water port that doesn’t get frozen in each winter. There was absolutely no way they were going to lose eastern Ukraine.

        I don’t think Obama knows how close he came to starting a war with Putin. And I wonder how much he and Biden make each year from Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian oil and gas company that Hunter Biden works for. Even the NY Times recognizes that as a sleazy deal:

          Those two, access to food and a winter seaport were guaranteed to get Russia fighting mad and I can not blame them because both are vital to the survival of the Russian people.

          Luboš Motl at one point had up an article mentioning that when the Ukraine became independent it was agreed (by treaty) that the Ukraine would remain within the Russian sphere of influence and the USA and EU would keep hands off. So the USA (Senator Songbird McCain aiding the Soros Color Revolution and the ousting of the elected president) plus the EU trying to get the Ukraine into the EU were violating that treaty.

          I find Putin very restrained in his dealings with the outright UNCALLED FOR aggression of the EU, NATO and the USA.

          There was a heck of a lot of other crap pulled too.

          …Russia’s leaders were understandably furious when, not only was former Libyan President Muammar al-Qaddafi ousted, but a cellphone recording of his last moments showed U.S.-backed rebels sodomizing him with a bayonet. They were even more enraged by Clinton’s videotaped response to the same news: “We came, we saw, he died,” the secretary of state quipped before bursting into laughter, cementing her reputation in Moscow as a duplicitous warmonger.

          As a candidate, Clinton has given Moscow déjà vu by once again demanding a humanitarian no-fly zone in the Middle East — this time in Syria. Russian analysts universally believe that this is another pretext for regime change. Putin is determined to prevent Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from meeting the same fate as Qaddafi — which is why he has deployed Russia’s air force, navy, and special operations forces to eliminate the anti-Assad insurgents, many of whom have received U.S. training and equipment…..

            It’s tit for tat. Remember the Russians/Putin cutting down natural gas supplies the western European or IOW NATO countries?

    • R Shearer says:

      So we ought to know within the next decade whether the alternative hypothesis is more correct.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Yes.

        Dr Evans coming at it from a different angle also agrees.
        The notch-delay solar theory

        …There are three big drops in solar radiation in the 400 years of records. The first, in the 1600s, led to the Maunder Minimum, the coldest time in the last 400 years. The second in Napoleon’s time, led to the Dalton Minimum, the second coldest time in the last 400 years. The third started in 2004, but hasn’t led to cooling…yet. The delay is tied to the solar cycle length, currently 13 years, so the cooling is likely to start in 2004 + 13 = 2017. The cooling will be at least 0.2°C, maybe 0.5°C….

        If you bother to pay attention you can see the weather patterns have changed with the Jets going from Zonal (winds mostly out of the west in N.H.) to Meridional (from every which way)

        1,00 year and 1500 year (bond) cycle found in Arctic.
        Researchers Pinpoint 1,500-Year Cycle
        in Arctic Atmospheric Pattern

        …identified for the first time a clear 1,500-year cycle in the far North’s surface atmosphere pressure pattern. Called the Arctic Oscillation (AO), the cycle greatly influences weather in the Northern Hemisphere…

        The sedimentation rate at our site is also sufficient to statistically differentiate between a 1,000-year cycle and a 1,500-year cycle, which helps us to understand the dynamics of the response of the climate system to external forcing during the Holocene geological period.”

        The 1,500-year cycle is distinct from a 1,000-year cycle found in a similarly analyzed record of total solar irradiance, the authors write, suggesting that the longer cycle arises from either internal oscillation of the climate system or as an indirect response to low-latitude solar forcing….

        The next decade should be interesting.

      really thanks for all the links …

      but imho Sputnik News is using a “milder” form of irony here …
