Little Ice Age Art | Science | Smithsonian: At least the Smithsonian admits still that there was a ‘Little Ice Age’. There has been a huge push going on with the ‘climate change (sic)’ crew that has gone beyond merely pretending it wasn’t cold back then, but want us to think that this period was ‘normal’ whereas it being cooler than during the Minoan Warm Period is pure evil and everyone is going to die of being warm instead of freezing to death. Oops. The Little Ice Age hammered Europe and my ancestors came to the New World in New York way back at its founding when it was very bitterly cold. They managed to survive but it was hard work!
The Dutch canals and rivers used to freeze over every year, but now they rarely do. That’s because winters in the Northern Hemisphere used to be much colder. The period of 14th to the mid-19th century is known as the Little Ice Age. A new study in Environmental Research Letters contends that low solar activity was responsible for those especially nasty European winters. Harsh winters, like the one we just had, can happen when the jet stream becomes “blocked.”
Due to the desperate need to tax everyone on earth for exhaling, the globalists who are looting us and who own, via lobbies and running the media, etc. are hammering away with warnings we will all roast to death soon and lying about the climate pretending this is the warmest years ever even though in my own less than 1,000 year life span, I remember much warmer years. Warming set to breach 1C threshold is the latest hysteria story from Europe:
Global temperatures are set to rise more than one degree above pre-industrial levels according to the UK’s Met Office. Figures from January to September this year are already 1.02C above the average between 1850 and 1900.
1850, the world was finally recovering from a surge of severe cold caused by Mount Tambora in 1815. There were numerous eruptions during the 19th century with some of the biggest in the last 1,000 years. Since then, there have been fewer and weaker eruptions. So it gets warmer thanks to no haze curbing warming of the atmosphere. But there is the other player in this game: the sun. When the sun is inactive as it was during the entire Little Ice Age, it gets colder. When the sun is active, it gets warmer. We had a surge of solar activity especially since the last century began but this is fading fast and astronomers who are still sane are predicting the sun activity is going to fall, they don’t know how far.
In the build up to next month’s meeting in Europe to decide how to strip us of our wealth in the name of saving us from CO2 that feeds plants, the major media especially in Europe are featuring scary stories about how we are all going to drown due to too warm weather. Cities with a sinking feeling: Researchers predict what major capitals could look like 100 years from now if nothing is done to cut carbon emissions: virtually all of the cities featured were founded and built mainly during the Little Ice Age especially Venice which didn’t exist before 1,000 AD. The height of the Venice building project was smack dab in the middle of the Little Ice Age and since the mid-19th century, it has been slowly drowning as the Mediterranean Sea returns to normal Interglacial conditions.
Holland, for example, which is the painting above, conquered land that used to lie under the oceans during the Little Ice Age, dealt with the rising oceans when things returned to normal, by building dikes and draining the seas and preventing flooding. The land is mainly land that is inherently unstable as is other super-low lying land that is flooded after slight changes in sea height. Humans are very, very attracted to these places. Humans avoid mountains and adore flat river plains, low lying sea hugged shores and other geological features because it is very close to the water and flat! The super rich who are whining about global warming nearly uniformly own property on land that is regularly flooded when things warm up.
Since much of our cities were expanded and build up during the Little Ice Age, the owners of all this want a return to Little Ice Age conditions so they don’t have to worry about flooding. They point out that lower Manhattan, for example, might end up flooded if the planet returns to Minoan Warm Period conditions. Well, the Dutch founded New Amsterdam when it was the coldest part of the Little Ice Age! This period of time saw huge deaths in Asia, Africa, South America and Europe as well as North America due to colder, drier conditions and much more ice impeding shipping, etc. Waves of death swept entire continents!
The headlines this fall are all about how we are going to roast to death due to el Nino which makes California warmer and we know that Los Angeles is the center of the earth: Three months of storms set to batter UK – Telegraph
The forecast – which predicts gale-force winds and freezing -14C temperatures in early 2016 – serves as a grim reminder of the winter of 2013, which wreaked chaos across the UK and left 17 people dead…The Met Office also warned of a severe drop in temperatures in the New Year caused by “sudden stratospheric warnings” where bitter easterly winds chill Britain.

- We just had over two decades of warmth from the sun. This is being depicted as being one of the worst climate times in history. This is pure insanity. We did have a spurt of hurricanes briefly after the warmer el Nino of 1999. Will this one be warmer? I seriously doubt this. Sun spot activity is nearly nil. Solar Cycle Update published in 1999- NASA Science:
The recent increase in geomagnetic activity offers a taste of things to come as the Sun approaches the maximum of its 11-year sunspot cycle. As sunspot numbers mount, coronal mass ejections and solar wind disturbances will trigger more and more geomagnetic storms. In extreme cases, these storms can induce electric currents in the earth and oceans that interfere with electric power transmission equipment.
The extra ultraviolet (UV) and X-ray radiation created by magnetic fields around sunspots also cause the Earth’s atmosphere to heat up and expand. This creates added drag in the area where low-earth orbit satellites and the Space Shuttle orbit. Solar flares and energetic particle events further complicate matters by interrupting satellite and shortwave radio communications.
It’s not all bad news, though. The increased levels of solar activity will likely trigger dazzling auroral displays at mid-latitudes. Sky watchers in the continental U.S. will be treated to sights normally reserved for residents of higher latitudes. Another piece of good news is that increased atmospheric drag at solar maximum acts as a scavenger and helps clean out space debris from low-Earth orbit.
Notice how this 1999 NASA article has zero hysteria about it being warmer when the sun is more active! Today, this is denied by ‘NASA scientists’ who are obviously scared of being fired or attacked like my poor father for telling people the sun is going quiet and therefore any ‘global warming’ will vanish. Only 16 years ago, we still had some sanity. Now, it is all lies all the time and utter insanity. The 1999 NASA story also mentions the fact that future solar cycles are going to be weaker and weaker which is another thing NASA now has to lie about. So sad, watching that once-stellar organization circle the drain.
