The Electrical Universe theory: The sun is powered not by nuclear fusion but by vast electrical currents mediated by plasma streams which stretch through the stars of the galaxy and to the planets, and will continue downward carrying the Earth’s temperatures lower.
A century of chilly, agriculture depressing weather is painful enough
If everyone is getting convinced that a Little Ice Age is coming and that there will be a Grand Solar Minimum then what is the place of the true Ice Age in this reasoning? There is the argument promoted by Rolf Witzschke that the bottom of the Grand Solar Minimum is not really there. The temperature will just drop through that nonexistent minimum and continue on down into a full blown Ice Age.
His reasoning is based on the Electrical Universe theory arguing that the sun is powered not by nuclear fusion but by vast electrical currents mediated by plasma streams which stretch through the stars of the galaxy and to the planets. These plasma stream’s intensity is cyclical with different periods resulting in the various fluctuations in solar output. Think of Fourier analysis applied to these currents to separate out the cyclical components.
The cyclical fluctuation relevant to Ice Ages is about 100,000 years in length and we are now dropping into the downside of this cycle. Of course, lesser cycles ride on top of this greater one so the observed cycles of the Little Ice Age are there too. Thus when the lesser cycle of the Little Ice Age stops declining the greater cycle will continue downward carrying the Earth’s temperatures lower.
Perhaps we should give some thought that this time the developing Little Ice Age may be just a preliminary to the next Ice Age? The lesser and greater cycles as I have called them here may be hard to distinguish for awhile, but that does not mean they both do not exist.
A century of chilly, agriculture depressing weather is painful enough and will inspire many changes in the human condition but the deep freeze for the next 90 millennia is something else. Which is it going to be? How can we determine the difference as far ahead of time as possible?
We are, of course, late into the current interglacial and temperatures have been moving down overall for several millennia already. Is our number coming up this century? Are we soon to suffer a precipitous drop in temperature or will we only suffer a relatively shallow decline and then squeeze through to a few more centuries of warmth later in this century? Does anyone here have some thoughts on the matter?
