Little Ice Age And Expanding Arctic Ice Coming – “Climate Forecasts Will Have To Be Thrown In The Dustbin”

The cold now sweeping over Europe and other parts of the globe are due to natural cycles, says German meteorologist Thomas Globig. He points out that the first 2 weeks of December in Britain have been the coldest since the last little ice age 350 years ago, and claims some climate models have criminally under-estimated solar influence on climate and that we ought to expect colder winters, and expanding Arctic ice in the years ahead. “Some climate forecasts will have to be thrown in the dustbin.”

All the talk and hype among the clueless masses have been, and still is, about global warming due to human emissions of CO2. Will the temperature rise be 2°C, 4°C or 10°C? Will we be able to avert the climate catastrophe?

Yes, it all sounds like a really bad B-rated movie. But it’s not – it’s all junk science produced by green activists. Ignore it. Dr Benny Peiser here brings our attention to an essay posted at wetter.t-online.de here.

The talk of this essay is not about warming, but of drastic cooling. According to wetter.info:

‘The year 2010 will be the coldest in ten years for Germany,’ says Thomas Globig of the Meteomedia weather service in a discussion with wetter.info.

Now it’s sure: temperatures in Germany this year have averaged 8.1 °C, or 0.2°C below the long-term measured average of 8.3°C.  ‘I’m afraid that by the end of the year, we are going to end up much lower,’ says Globig.”

Us sceptics know that climate goes in cycles. Back in the 60s and 70s Europe got a lot of snow. Then it got milder – due to man-made global warming! – all the government funded scientists opportunistically chimed in. But lo and behold, it’s getting colder again. People have been caught off guard says Globig.

Why is it getting cooler?

Globig attributes it to natural cycles: mainly the large-scale changes in the air flow over the Atlantic and fluctuating solar activity. There are Lows near the Azores and Highs in the North Atlantic, which means cold Arctic air is getting pumped down across Europe. “The weather situation has been turned up on its head,” says Globig.

Oh – but this is all due to man’s disruption of the weather, the alarmists will tell you. It’s actually abnormal! Not so, says Globig:

This change in the so-called North Atlantic Oscillation is completely normal – only that they are difficult to forecast in detail.’ With storm Kyrill in 2007, it was the peak of air mass flow from the warmer Atlantic into the European region.

Globig points out:

 Since then, the weather over the Atlantic has gotten calmer.”

Calmer weather over the Atlantic? Time for the climatologists to bring their crystal balls in for a major recalibration. Their crackpot models predicted just the opposite.

The NAO has switched. That means we ought to expect more cold winters in the years ahead. That’s right – forget warming. Ignore all the morons in the mainstream media.

These low temperatures could continue for a few years, maybe decades. Even icier winters can’t be ruled out. ‘This has occurred before in the past, and has to do with natural climate changes,’ says Globig. We could even be at the start of a little ice age, ‘the probability is there.’

It has to do with solar activity, according to wetter-t-online.de:

It has gone past its high point of its 200-year high-phase and will decrease over the coming decades. Around the year 2040/2050, scientists calculate there will be a new so-called solar minimum, that means much less feed-in of solar energy into the Earth’s atmosphere.

And when that happens, it means colder times ahead. And that means colder poles, which means expanding Arctic ice. Like Joe Bastardi, and probaly hundreds, if not thousands, of meteorologists, Globig thinks so too.

‘I find it quite plausible that Arctic ice will expand considerably over the next years,’ says Globig. ‘The influence of solar activity on climate has been criminally under-estimated.’

‘We will really know what is in store for us in the next five to seven years,’ Globig believes. Indeed one thing appears to be very probable for meteorologists: ‘We will have to throw some climate forecasts into the dustbin.’

Today, I can practically tell who gets their longterm forecasts from whom. I went to a home & garden center today to buy a snow shovel – they were all sold out. The next shipment? At the end of January! How much worse can you get?

Tomorrow I will call the headquarters of this home & garden center to see if I can find out where they are getting their forecasts. I’ll bet you they are getting them from the warmist DWD German Weather Service.

    I told my friend here in Manila who owns a small travel agency, to get ready for big number of winter-battered Europeans and Americans seeking the warm climate of the tropics in the coming months and years.

      Climate refugees, just as predicted by the IPCC 🙂

    The climategate emails exposed the leftist’s so called settled science as a complete fraud. How do the socialist frauds in the MSM, academia and government react. Bury their collective heads in the sand and pretend nothing has changed. Like this is going to make it go away. Since the release of the emails the AGW/IPCC scam has collasped faster than al gore can side step a debate. We must finish phase II in 2012 and boot the rest of the socialist democrats out of office who were so easily led by the nose into buying in and funding the AGW fraud.

    Found this piece on Bild.de:

    “15:50 Uhr: Klirrende Kälte kann die Reichweite von Elektroautos fast halbieren. In einem Test des Magazins „Auto, Motor und Sport“ sank die Reichweite des Mitsubishi i-Miev bei minus sieben Grad um 43 Prozent auf 64 Kilometer mit einer vollen Batterieladung. Bei Raumtemperatur schaffte er im Test 113 Kilometer.”

    -> with -7 Celsius batteries of e-cars only have power for half the max distance…

    ups…. I guess there is need of more science into these batteries. So, if global cooling is on the way, meaning half of the year cold temperatures at least, I don´t see any sense into investing into a e-car now.

    I wish you happy snow shoveling 🙂

    Ipcc style and Government “Climate Science” has become nothing more than a classic Propaganda Operation. Take it to the bank! But it’s still amazing to me how frequently its apparently objective claims are wrong, and even more amazing how frequently its claims are even the direct opposite of what actually happens, at least when viewed in the short term way which we must going forward.

    One chronic example, imo: even with all the fudging and “tricks” used to construct the sea and surface station temp. records over the past 130 years, the “Climate Scientists” could only eek out ~0.8 degrees C. of alleged warming, now essentially stalled! So perhaps the actual cooling might be “worse than we thought”?

    Massive snowstorm to hit Europe
    http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2010/12/16/massive-snowstorm-about-to-blast-europe/

    from Joe Bastardi:

    WEDNESDAY NIGHT ( LATE)
    WILL IRELAND AND THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL UK GET SHUT DOWN BY SNOW THIS WEEKEND.

    What may be the storm of the winter is setting up for Ireland and the UK as low pressure dives south out of the arctic to over the UK and leads to widespread snows of more than 10 CM in the 2 day period. Bitter cold will follow the storm and set the stage for what could be another storm around the 20th or 21st, that would try to come at the start of a thaw. The point is the threat of a big ticket snow event is around the corner and part of the gift package before the pattern moderation sets in later next week and beyond. The snow cover chart to open next week shows all of the UK covered as well much of France, Italy into the central mountains and much of southeast Europe. Most of the snow melts in the UK and Ireland by Christmas though. The development of a Scandinavian ridge in the longer term argues for the warming across the north in the means, but the computer modeling is remaining faithful to the cold further south idea for the heart of winter.

    Before the thaw, alot of places will see plenty of winter the next few days.

    Thanks for reading, ciao for now ***
