“The New Little Ice Age Has Started.” This is the unambiguous title of a new study from one of the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions, the Russian Academy of Science’s Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg. “The average temperature around the globe will fall by about 1.5 C when we enter the deep cooling phase of the Little Ice Age, expected in the year 2060,” the study states. “The cooling phase will last for about 45-65 years, for four to six 11-year cycles of the Sun, after which on the Earth, at the beginning of the 22nd century, will begin the new, next quasi-bicentennial cycle of warming.”
There's been some talk of this for a while, overshadowed by the 'Globular Warmering/Man-Caused Climate Change!' screaming. Which, if this does indeed continue, will become "We're causing this, and we have to act NOW!" from the same people screaming '- act NOW!' about warming a few years back. Because we have to power, somehow, to control global/solar cycles like this.
Make fracking even more popular, it would.
