Study predicting 'mini ice age' criticized as flawed

2 posts in this topic

WASHINGTON, July 14 (UPI) -- Some headline-grabbing research by a math professor at Northumbria University in England suggesting that the Earth will experience a "mini ice age" in the 2030s is being criticized by climate experts.

Valentina Zharkova's study, which made headlines around the world, didn't directly predict a miniature ice age, but that the sun's solar activity would go into a prolonged lull.

Zharkova says the magnetic waves that cause sunspots exist as two divergent -- and competing -- frequencies. These frequencies will soon cancel each other out, she says, leading to a reduction in radiation hurled toward Earth.

The Royal Astronomical Society, after its National Astronomy Meeting last week in Llandudno, Wales, sent out a press release that helped shine the spotlight on Zharkova's research, which was published last year in the Astrophysical Journal.

This is the celebrated study because USA scientists did it .

There have been numerous Russian Scientific studies concluding the same thing, many dating back to the early 80's and 90's 

Giving a firm date for it to commence is stupid........

From what science knows about earth/sun driven climate change, it can happen in less that one year, so they might be very late on the 2020 date or very early.
