A New Ice Age? Consider the Evidence

Lorne Gunter examines recent research — in conjunction with corroborating front page news stories of extreme weather conditions worldwide — that suggests we might be in for a period of climate change alright. And it ain’t global warming.

The last time the sun was this inactive, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age that lasted about five centuries and ended in 1850. Crops failed through killer frosts and drought. Famine, plague and war were widespread. Harbours froze, so did rivers, and trade ceased.

It’s way too early to claim the same is about to happen again, but then it’s way too early for the hysteria of the global warmers, too.
