Global Cooling: Sudden European temperature plunge over the last decade… Are we on the brink of a Little Ice Age?

Global Cooling: Sudden European temperature plunge over the last decade… Are we on the brink of a Little Ice Age?

So since 2000 the CET shows an annual temperature diminution at the rate of -0.49°C/decade or -0.59°C in 12 years: this negates almost the entire CET temperature rise since 1850. Although this is a very short period, the extent of the climate change that has been observed since the turn of the millennium is remarkable. …

At ~10,500 years our current cooler but benign Holocene interglacial is coming towards its end and the reversion of our planet to a real ice age is foreseeable.

  1. I have actually wondered about this for quite some time. The past 5 years I have lived in ND and have enquired about some strange things that I noticed. My previous house on some acreage and had an old and very thick rope from the house to the barn. When I enquired about this I was told that they were used in the “old days” for people to reach livestock safely during blizzards. As the county I was living in was considered to still be a frontier county until the recent oil boom, the historical records are most likely inaccurate and unreliable (according to locals). I have seen the weather channel be off by 50 degrees on current time temps here. I looked up the all time low with wind chill for Minot airbase and it was -102!
    My curiosity led to me to inquire about ND weather history with the older residents. I have been shown pics of snow up to and over the roofs and have been told that this is the reason why all older ND construction has second story exits. Apparently, this happened in the 70’s severely, but further back also. Obviously cyclical. It is already cold enough here, if a dryas type of event happened here would be uninhabitable, at least in my book. I suppose Monsanto will break out the super frost resistant, you’ll look like you have leprosy, buy from us or die seeds out of the vault then… (=
