CANBERRA: Scientists have warned that the world might once again be heading towards an Ice Age, with global warming approaching a possible end.

Evidence in support of this theory has come from pictures obtained from the US Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, which showed no spots on the sun, thus determining that sunspot activity has not resumed after hitting an 11-year low in March last year.

A sunspot is a region on the sun that is cooler than the rest and appears dark.

Some scientists believe a strong solar magnetic field, when there is plenty of sunspot activity, protects the earth from cosmic rays, cutting cloud formation, but that when the field is weak - during low sunspot activity - the rays can penetrate into the lower atmosphere and cloud cover increases, cooling the surface.

According to Australian astronaut and geophysicist Phil Chapman, this might have caused the world to cool quickly between January last year and January this year, by about 0.7C.

"This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record, and it puts us back to where we were in 1930," said Dr Chapman.

"If the temperature does not soon recover, we will have to conclude that global warming is over," he added.

Dr Chapman has proposed preventive, or delaying, moves to slow the cooling, such as bulldozing Siberian and Canadian snow to make it dirty and less reflective.

"My guess is that the odds are now at least 50:50 that we will see significant cooling rather than warming in coming decades," he said.

We have hit the Trifecta! War, Famine, Ice Age! and that adds up to Mass death and destruction, and well thats it! No fringe benefits in that equation. Guess I better just write off my Superannuation well whats left of it, government already stolen half of it, probably to buy rice for themselves. Polar bears are gonna have the time of their lives hunting down humans who have fled the decaying cities due to gangs of crazed cannibal zombies!

How right you are, RCS...

Spring went bye bye and winter returned to my neck of the woods for the past week... over 1 foot of snow and the whole 9 yds.

Yikes!

Spent my first winter in Colorado after leaving Arizona. Brrr..lol! The mountains almost broke a record for snowfall, Denver had about 10" less then normal but they say this was one of their colder winters in awhile.

Start packing your rice, all the sunspots are dissappearing, that signifies extreme cold, and most likely we are not too many years away from the onset of Ice Age, which can advance quickly and last approx. 10,000 - 12,000 years, unless we recieve help from the Lord, the picture on a global scale looks grim. basically we're not producing enough food as it stands now, if we get a few bad frosts, we could see a global superfamine due to widespread crop failures.

careful playing with the nub yeti:) he seems stuck in his ways already:) He thinks sun spots are the be all and end all of global temps(just a factor)....
