CHILLING PREDICTION

Planet Earth could be heading for an ICE AGE as face of The Sun ‘goes blank’
Climate experts issue terrifying warning which will literally send shivers down every human's spine

This chilling prediction is based on analysis of the solar surface, which is currently exhibiting a distinct lack of action.

This NASA shot of the Sun shows it looked very smooth indeed Normally, the face of our parent star is pocked by sunspots.

But it’s looking as smooth as a billiard ball right now and sunspots are appearing at the lowest rate for 10,000 years as solar activity slows down.

On the website Space Weather, a forecaster said there were more blank suns to come.

“There will be lots of spotless suns,” they said.

“At first, the blank stretches will be measured in days; later in weeks and months.

“The current blank spell is the 4th such interval of 2016, so far.”

This is what the Sun looks like when it’s enjoying a period of more activity. It is feared the lack of sunspot activity could prompt the arrival of a cold snap similar to the Maunder Minimum, which started in 1645 and continued to about 1715.

This period is known as the Little Ice Age and became famous for the winter frost fairs held on the frozen surface of the Thames.

Last year, Professor Valentina Zharkova suggested a similar episode could hit Earth in the 2030s.

She said the Sun’s activity would drop by up to 60% during the next mini Ice Age, potentially causing crop failures and other minor disasters down here on Earth.

He said: “I am absolutely confident in our research. It has good mathematical background and reliable data, which has been handled correctly.

“In fact, our results can be repeated by any researchers with the similar data available in many solar observatories, so they can derive their own evidence of upcoming Maunder Minimum in solar magnetic field and activity.”

With a Trump victory I hope god we can end all this funding of fake science.

Hi Hawkmoon; Re: "Probably one of the hottest years on earth was the year before this frozen Mammoth was munching down on grass in a bog in Siberia. They discovered its frozen remains in Siberia.. In fact, so quickly frozen it's food was still in its mouth.";

The Russians find these things when mining for ivory. The places they're digging up are where crap from rivers built up. The mammoths fall into the river, drown, and are deposited downstream at these sites that are now being mined using hydraulic methods that are illegal in the US and Canada. Hence we don't find the things over here not because they don't exist but instead because the mining techniques are restricted.

This is far north country and the rivers are very cold. They were as cold or colder back in the ice age. So meat doesn't decay quickly and due to the vagaries of luck, some of the mammoths are very well preserved. That means that the river shifted and they became a part of the permafrost faster than they could decay.

about 40 years ago, while stripping permafrost bog 30 feet thick overlying gravels, as the muck pile started to thaw, I couldn't believe my eyes when frogs came out of permafrost that must have been frozen for at least the last 10,000 years!!!! I called them permafrogs....yes, this is a true story.

Hi teevee; Are you saying that the frogs come back to life??? Hard to believe. I have to look that up...

"After being frozen for years many metres down in the permafrost, the Siberian salamander can thaw out, get up and run off. Local legend has it that some may have been frozen alongside mammoths in the Pleistocene age – and still come to life when thawed out. Much as scientists would love to have a specimen of DNA from an organism that lived so long ago, the legends are unlikely to be true. Although frozen salamanders have been found in layers of ice 14 metres down, which were deposited in the Pleistocene age more than 12 000 years ago, they probably fell to this depth much later, through deep cracks in the permafrost."

P.S. On the subject of the instantly frozen mammoths, the places where rivers deposit stuff is on the in side of turns. And they erode on the out side with the result that rivers end up with bows. These eventually pinch off and make lakes, and in cold regions, without the moving water of the river, the lakes freeze to permafrost. These are what are mined for fossil ivory.

yes, the "permafrogs" came back to life.
