Little Ice Age Will Sweep Earth From 2030 To 2040 Freezing Many Rivers And Killing Many

Published on 13 July, 2015 at 4:35 pm By

Brace yourselves human race. By 2030 a ‘Little’ Ice Age will sweep across our planet covering in thick inches of snow every blade of grass and unleashing a cold that will force everyone to wear those jackets for an unusually long period of time.

Using a more accurate model to measure solar cycles, scientists have now predicted that the Sun will go to “sleep mode” from 2030 to 2040, which technically means that solar activity will fall by around 60 per cent.

According to Science Alert, mathematics professor Valentina Zharkova from Northumbria University in the UK presented the model which is said to be 97 per cent accurate in measuring the Sun’s solar activity.

 

Solar activity fluctuates every 10-12 years. There is either an increase in solar flares or a decrease in sunspots causing heat and cold waves on earth, respectively.

Usually, neither have been at extremes except from 1645 to 1715, when sunspots became so few it triggered the first recorded Little Ice Age, also known as Maunder Minimum.

 

The model predicts that there will be a reduction in sunspots over the next two 11-year cycles – Cycle 25, which peaks in 2022, and Cycle 26, which runs from 2030 to 2040. Cycle 26 will be more extreme.



 

The last such ice age had frozen the River Thames in England, as recorded. It is very likely that this one, too, will have the same effect on every river in Europe.

Since the Little Ice Age will impact the entire Northern Hemisphere, India will face the cold too for the entire duration. No, the Ganges might not freeze up at its lower reaches but it might along the northern parts of  the Himalayas. And since many in India sleep under the open sky, there will be deaths.
