A New Ice Age???

Well..one cold winter does not make climate..but...
Last month, Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, shrugged off manmade climate change as "a drop in the bucket." Showing that solar activity has entered an inactive phase, Prof. Sorokhtin advised people to "stock up on fur coats."

He is not alone. Kenneth Tapping of our own National Research Council, who oversees a giant radio telescope focused on the sun, is convinced we are in for a long period of severely cold weather if sunspot activity does not pick up soon.

The last time the sun was this inactive, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age that lasted about five centuries and ended in 1850. Crops failed through killer frosts and drought. Famine, plague and war were widespread. Harbours froze, so did rivers, and trade ceased.

It's way too early to claim the same is about to happen again, but then it's way too early for the hysteria of the global warmers, too.

"Famine, plague and war were widespread."

China lost millions of livestock and millions of hectares of crops this year so far. Afghanistan lost more than 300,000 livestock. The ones that survive the lack of fodder are too thin to get a good price at the market. (I wonder if the poppy crops will be diminished this year.) Famine and war caused by famine may become widespread, but modern medicine may help in the area of plague.
