Now that the temperature maximum of the 1000-year cycle has been reached over the past two decades, a new global cooling phase can be expected — as has been the case over the past 8000 years. Why would the natural cycles just suddenly give up?
What can be expected over the next 400 years is a drop of at least 1°C to a level seen during the Medieval times some 500 years ago (called the LIA = Little Ice Age). Reports on sea level rise grinding to a halt and the unexpected rise in sea ice mass in the Arctic and Greenland further add weight to the suspicion that a new global cooling may have already started:
▪ Northern hemisphere (NH) snow cover im May 2017 was greater than at any time in the past 32 years.
▪ In May 2017 sea ice area compared to a year earlier increased during a month of May like never before, since satellite measurement began in 1979.
▪ The gigantic ice sheet on Greenland was also at record level in May 2017, from the beginning of September 2016 to the end of 2017 mass balance of Greenland ice at a surplus of 700 million tonnes and has never been so high since recording began!
▪ At the end of July in Greenland on the night of July 31 to August 1, a temperature of -30.7°C was measured at a location at 3200 m elevation. Never has such a low temperature been measured in the summertime since recording began in 1990. And in early July of this year, 2017, a temperature of -33.0°C was recorded in Greenland.
Also sea level is showing signs that may be related to ice mass: It has not risen in 2 years:
If one extends the temperature curve of the last 1000 years with its 230-year and 1000-year cycles, we get the following chart for the next 700 years:
