Global Warming? …not anymore…experts now warning of new Ice age

It is really too funny to believe, but if it wasn’t so serious we could all have a laugh.

Despite decades of scaremongering about global warming it looks like we are all now going to be subjected to scaremongering about a new ice age.

BRITAIN faces a new mini-Ice Age with decades of severe Siberian winters and washout summers, an expert has warned.

Professor Mike Lockwood, of Reading University, said erratic and extreme weather patterns could be the norm in 20 years.

He said the risk of harsh winters and wet miserable summers has gone up to 25 to 30 per cent compared with 10 per cent a few years ago. 

Weakening sunspot activity is to blame for a “major change” in the UK’s weather he told BBC TV.

He said: “The sun is ‘quietening’ really rapidly. We think it is actually quietening more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years.

“So this is a major change. We think lower solar activity does seem to tie up with more cold winters in central Europe and the UK.”

Climatologist Dr Dennis Wheeler from Sunderland University, said: “When we have had periods where the sun has been quieter than usual we tend to get these much harsher winters.”

I wonder if we will get an apology anytime soon?

    Quick buy a big car build more roads and get rid of that heat pump, we need more coal fores. Do Your bit for the World!

      Yep, this scam just get better with time. Shit I remember the time when it was all about Ghia getting all mad with us all, a new Ice Age looming and Acid rain falling from the skies as a nuclear winter loomed, et. al.

      Then, the irony not lost on our left-of-centre-colleagues, Mrs Thatcher’s ‘mandarins’ cottoned onto some dubious ‘science’ about the planet warming up over fossil fuels (read Coal) that could be used against Kinnocks mining luddites. The rest, and a few trillion of waste later, was fucking history.

      Any way, a live version of the Depeche Mode classic “The Landscape is Changing”. Yes, they were wrong as well but at least the music was good ;/

    Well when they realised the warming had stopped they started calling it “Climate Change”, which is basically “no matter what happens, we tax you more to make up for it, you evil First World-er!”.

    So this won’t bother the taliban.

    Those Chrissy card you buy with people skating in the UK that was the MINI ice age in the 1700’s and 1800’s.
    When Henry V was kicking shit out the Frogs in 1415 the Brits were growing grapes in S England.

    Maybe we will need to ramp up the ‘global warming’ – us humans are so good at influencing all this climate business………….!

  • It won’t be as cold as the ice age around Len Brown’s house …..

    • Cadwallader

      Unless there is a Bevan sleepover.

  • surfisup

    There are some other theories that global warming can trigger cooling. One such is that changes in oceanic salinity (through ice melting) may cause ocean currents to change course and this will affect local climates.

    This seems a reasonable premise to study in my opinion. Whether it is true or not? There is insufficient evidence to date.

    • rightoverlabour

      Mostly true but not fully understood yet. The proxy data is often hard to interpret and the dating is very error prone. Palaeooceanologists have a reasonable handle on this.

    • philbest

      And whether human CO2 is responsible……?

      When solar activity is a perfect match (and always has been….?)

  • Well at least the ice caps will grow back ….

    • BR

      They never went away.

  • Dick Brown

    lol Professor Mick Lockwood.

    He changes his mind all the time on this stuff.

    And reading into his research the final conclusion is ‘more research is needed’

    We can’t wait for the new East Anglian cooked books.again!

    Bwahahahaha….. and the Greens are *still* wailing “the sky is falling! The sky is falling!”

  • cows4me

    I bet the AGW crowd are spewing their ring gears out now, if only they had said the heating was going to slow down then we might get a bit of a cold snap. The retards will be pushing the panic button by now, the empire is crashing.

  • KiaOra

    I would like to share this but if you read the whole thing the guy is dodgy and has an agenda big time.

  • Greg Davis

    Look guys, you all have to help dismantle the public education system. The leftards have been pushing this shit for decades. If you won’t vote for change, or overthrow, then you get what you deserve.
