Mini Ice Age? (Page 2)
Storms with names in the UK??
We know how many weeks of rain it takes before there can be a flood.
So was poverty caused by the policies called Austerity behind the news??
Jan Theart has plotted the tracks of hurricanes in to the USA.
I think the two that reach the middle USA were nos 11 and 8.
Another interesting youtube from Jan Theart about the on going effects of the El Nino.
Notice the loud cough! Why has that been left in??
If the North Atlantic heating blobs are keeping Europe warmer what will happen when the El Nino effects start???
Accuweather reports about the Cold Blob and related weather forecast for Europe.
The general forecast seems to be coming true. In Poland newspapers report that the Police are searching for homeless as dangerous cold weather snaps drive the temperature down.
For the UK and Ireland the changes to the Gulf Stream are not so important as it controls the timing of the seasons and not the temperature.
But the change in salinity seems to be significant.
Adapt finds many peer reviewed papers finding links between solar activity and cooling.
He also considers what may happen if food shortages occur due to cooling not warming.
NASA reveals growth in ice sheets at pole.
“At the end of the last Ice Age, the air became warmer and carried more moisture across the continent, doubling the amount of snow dropped on the ice sheet,” Zwally said. "
ghostgeek: There you go. It doesn't matter what the weather is like, it's all due to global warming.
A change in the weather?
" STRATOSPHERIC CLOUD EVENT: Clouds in the stratosphere are very rare. Yet for the past week they have been seen every day."Spaceweather.com
Either there is more water or it is colder in the stratosphere?
There has been several storms as well including a north moving storm from coming from the equator to Ireland.
While in Australia there has been very powerful thunderstorms and problems with the weather radar.
Loony outpost websites have speculated that the earth has tipped on its axis....
Cosmic rays continue to increase Spaceweather reports;-
" Last month, we reported that cosmic rays are intensifying. Measurements so far in February indicate that the trend is continuing. In fact, the latest balloon flight over California on Feb. 5th detected the highest value yet:"
There was a large hole in the ozone above the UK NASA also reported a few days ago and if anyone said it was the start of a Mini Ice Age it would not have been a surprise.
Surprise!! An asteroid could cause a Mini Ice Age.
Thewatchers outlines the LALIA theory now trending on websites in some anticipation of what might be happening fifteen years from now.
" The period between 536 and 660 CE has been referred to as the "Late Antique Little Ice Age" (LALIA) for the first time in this research. The mini ice age was triggered by three major volcanic eruptions in 536, 540 and 547 CE. Their impact on climate was most likely further prolonged by the retardant effect of the oceans and a minimum in solar activity."
This "...things will change..." message is coming from within the political left.
Thewatchers has chosen the research from neutral Switzerland to present to us.

Is this the recent cold weather in the UK a taste of the Ice Age?
It has been bitterly cold without snow and there was a series of storms as very cold air from the USA arrived high in the atmosphere.
The high clouds in the stratosphere mean that the weather is going to be different all year.
Apart from the cold it is quite jolly.
ghostgeek: Jolly? It is cold, damp, grey and windy. How can anyone be jolly living in such a shitheap of a country?
ghostgeek: Saw my first fox in the daytime, going into somebody's back garden. The whole country is going to the foxes, and the rats.
ghostgeek: I think pet care would be extremely simple come the next Ice Age. Whatever it is, pop it in the pot and cook it.
When you think about it pet owning pooper pickers will have a lot more to do in winter anyway. A long time between defrosts might mean a change in peoples activities.
ghostgeek: I long ago thought of a solution to that problem. Staple a bag to the backside of every animal.
Dog owners are already often in difficulty tying to keep their pets from making a mess in pubic places and in cold weather they are even less likely to stop and clear up behind themselves.
The high cold weather seems to have brought a slight change in the germs.Compared to mists and smog from the ground level cooler air from above is slightly better to walk in.
With people foreseeing a Mini Ice Age for decades to come property prices and local government might under go some changes.
Adapt2013 looks at the US cold weather.
No great surprises here as the US was expected to have colder weather in the East and the Atlantic Cold Blob was also expected to cause a similar cold blob on land.
Adapts research really does show the cold following the pattern set by the Blob.
Earthsky reports on the end of the hot Blob in the Pacific.
Global Warmists might think the weather could change as quickly for them too!
The actual start of the Mini Ice Age??
" Snow falls in Algarve "
" It last snowed in Monchique in 2009 and is one of only a handful of times that the mountainous area has seen snowfall in the past few decades.
The weather is expected to brighten and warm up by tomorrow."
I think the Portuguese had a saying that meant if it snows after Xmas it will be rainy all year or rain heavily.
Cold weather from "the east " will cause a cold spell for the UK the UK met office predicted.
"Meteorologists from the UK Met Office have predicted a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) will occur in early March 2016. The phenomena could affect the surface weather, increasing the risk of prolonged wintry conditions over parts of northern Europe and the UK. "
Which "east " they are talking about and for how long will the cold last they forget to mention.
From other times I remember it is caused by the weather in the USA. SO and other websites joked about having a " heat wave " knowing it meant more cold for Europe. So not much has changed there unless it lasts a long while or something else happens.
Adapt looks at the SSW. His style seems better suited to looking at odd claims rather then actual weather events.
The frozen lake in Russia has frozen before and that was because of a lack of direct sunlight causing low temperatures.
