At the National Astronomy meeting in Wales, 2015, Northumbria University professor Valentina Zharkova said fluctuations in an 11-year cycle of solar activity could cause global cooling starting in 2030: A decade long ice age is predicted as sun 'hibernates.' Scientists claim we may be in for a decade-long freeze as the sun slows down solar activity by up to 60 per cent. Can't imagine what that much less energy from the sun would mean for life on Earth. The wind turbines generating electricity would be iced up and stop turning or break. The solar panels would be covered in snow.
Emil Royrvik - The debate about man-made global warming is literally a hot topic. In fact it’s a discourse, and an empirical prospect, as some would argue, with quite a deadly intensity. The title of the latest book by one of the central scientists in this field is telling: ”The hockey stick and the climate wars” (Mann 2012). This alleged ”climate war” is a scientific, political, economic, social and moral public field that is co-constructed and intersects in numerous ways, and which, to some extent at least, is characterized by the rhetoric of apocalypse, war and the communicative logic of the military trenches.
John Holdren, Science Advisor to the White House - Climate change is happening even faster than previously estimated; global CO2 emissions since 2000 have been higher than even the highest predictions, Arctic sea ice has been melting .. .. .. and the rise in the sea level has become more rapid. The need for urgent action to address climate change is now indisputable. Compare these words from John Holdren with the photos on all articles on this website, and the photo sent by Holdren showing the ocean in Cape Cod frozen in 2015. He lamented, "Endless Winter." Do the President and the Pope know about this freezing of the ocean in Cape Cod? Holdren's "consensus," doesn't belong in science. See article by E. Royrvik."Consensus and Controversy."
Niraj Chokshi writes for the Washington Post. - Pope Francis: The world is near ‘suicide’ on climate change; ‘it’s now or never’
The Pope is far from alone. Speaking at the summit, President Obama quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in warning that “there is such a thing as being too late.”
