The Mini Ice Age

There’s been a lot of talk lately on social media about a coming ‘mini ice age’ in 2030… or some such.  I really don’t know, because I don’t believe a word of it.  My Bible says that it will be so hot, people will chew their tongues in agony.  That doesn’t sound like a mini ice age to me.  So I openly admit that I blew the news off, even though mini ice ageI’ve seen it six times in half as many days.

This morning, SpaceWeather (one of my daily visiting places) posted this:

ICE AGE NEWS REPORTS ARE EXAGGERATED: Stop the presses. The mainstream media is reporting a sensational new study about the sun’s inner magnetic dynamo. According to a double-dynamo model advanced by researchers at Northumbria University, solar activity could drop by 60% in the 2030s, mimicking conditions during the Little Ice Age of the 17th century. A widely copied quote-fragment from lead researcher Valentina Zharkova notes that “…we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%.” In fact, the model has never successfully predicted any future solar activity. So far it has only been used to “predict” solar cycles from 1976 to 2008. Almost any model can be fine-tuned to match the past. As forecasting tools, previous dynamo models have failed spectacularly. The double-dynamo model of Zharkova et al may yet prove to be correct, but until it passes the test of correctly predicting future solar activity, there is no reason to worry about an historic decline in sunspots, much less an Ice Age. Indeed, it is more likely that the reverse is true.

Ah.  Well, that more supports scripture, so I’d be more likely to follow that link.  And here’s what the link says:

U.K. tabloids, conservative media, and others are (mis)reporting that the Earth will enter a “mini ice age” in the 2030s. In fact, not only is the story wrong, the reverse is actually true.  The Earth is headed toward an imminent speed-up in global warming, as many recent studies have made clear, like this June study by NOAA. Indeed, a March study, entitled “Near-term acceleration in the rate of temperature change,” makes clear that a stunning acceleration in the rate of global warming is around the corner — with Arctic warming rising 1°F per decade by the 2020s!

Also, right now, we appear to be in the midst of a long-awaited jump in global temperatures. Not only was 2014 the hottest year on record, but 2015 is in the process of blowing that record away. On top of that, models say a massive El Niño is growing, as USA Today reported last week. Since El Niños tend to set the record for the hottest years (since the regional warming adds to the underlying global warming trend), if 2015/2016 does see a super El Niño then next year may well crush the record this year sets.

So there you have it.  There’s not going to be a mini ice age.  In case anyone doubted scripture and needs the NOAA to confirm Truth, instead.

Actually, a few weeks ago, I posted a picture that I absolutely love.  You know how I always said that if Italy is foretold to ‘get the boot’ in the future, then maybe the best place to be in the end times is ‘in His hand’?  Well, take a look at this… it’s an example of 2015’s weather patterns, thus far:
