Earth about to enter ‘Mini Ice Age,’ expert warns

Article by Robert W Felixing. from "Ice Age Now"

As global warming propaganda is discussed, some scientists warn that a far different type of climate change is headed our way.

Sunspot compared to Earth

We should be bracing for a prolonged solar minimum that could last for decades, until the 2050s, says Prof. Valentina Zharkova, a professor of mathematics at Northumbria University in Newcastle, England.
Zharkova is not alone in saying that the earth is headed into a solar minimum. According to NASA, the Sun will reach its lowest activity in over 200 years in 2020.
“The Sun is approaching a hibernation period,” says Professor Zharkova, who has published multiple scientific papers on solar minimums.
“Less sunspots will be formed on the solar surface and thus less energy and radiation will be emitted towards the planets and the Earth.”
This could cause global temperatures to drop by one degree Celsius, says Dr. Zharkova, who also has a doctorate in astrophysics.
While a one-degree drop may sound insignificant, it could trigger a slow down in agricultural production. Agricultural seasons could be shorter for several decades.
As we have seen in the past couple of years when the snow in Spain and Greece in April and May demolished the veggie fields, and the UK had a deficit of broccoli, and other fruits and veggies.”
Zharkova also pointed to recent unusual chills in Canada and Iceland as evidence of the Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) already taking hold.
“We can only hope that the mini ice age will not be as severe as it was during the Maunder minimum,” Zharkova said.
The Maunder Minimum, known as a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM), occurred from the mid-16th century until the early 17th century, and coincided with a time on Earth known as the Little Ice Age.
“The reduction in temperature will results in cold weathers on Earth, wet and cold summers, cold and wet winters,” said Zharkova. “We will possibly get big frosts as is happening now in Canada where they see [temperatures] of -50C.
One solar scientist, Matthew Owens from the University of Reading, believes that any cooling effect of a GSM will be “vastly offset” by anthropogenic global warm

In 2012 and 2013 there were no sun spots?
Percentage indication means percent of sunspot or no sun spots?

very very interesting article by Rajesh Sir.
True as many people project global warming, mini ice age is new revelation!

Elusive Atlantic -> From Bermuda Triangle to Jet Streams.....


Looks like 2019-2020 lots of rare events happening... Maharashtra becomes worlds wettest place, mini ice age discovery in pipeline....
