Some 15 or so years from now, the “polar vortex” might not sound so bad.
European scientists warn that by 2030, a decade of winters with deep freezing temperatures could bring about a “mini ice age” the likes of which hasn’t been seen in 370 years.
Researchers at Northumbria University, led by Professor Valentina Zharkova, used mathematical models to predict solar activity will drop by 60% and trigger plunging temps around the world. The last time this happened was between 1645 and 1715.
More testing will be needed, but Zharkova is confident about her outlook.
“Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%,” she said.
Sound familiar? Former NASA consultant and space shuttle engineer John Casey has been known to voice similar concerns. In fact, he wrote a book called “Dark Winter” in which he warns of crop failures and food riots.
“We don’t have 10 years,” Casey once told Newsmax. “We’ve squandered during President Obama’s administration eight years ... and we didn’t have eight years to squander.”
Climate change has been a perplexing problem for years. In Dark Winter, author John L. Casey, a former White House national space policy advisor, NASA headquarters consultant, and space shuttle engineer tells the truth about ominous changes taking place in the climate and the Sun. Casey s research into the Sun s activity, which began almost a decade ago, resulted in the discovery of a solar cycle that is now reversing from its global warming phase to that of dangerous global cooling for the next thirty years or more. This new cold climate will dramatically impact the world’s citizens. In Dark Winter, he provides evidence of the following: The end of global warming. The beginning of a solar hibernation, a historic reduction in the energy output of the Sun. A long-term drop in the Earth s temperatures. The start of the next climate change to decades of dangerously cold weather. The high probability of record earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. A sobering look at the Earth s future, Dark Winter predicts worldwide, crop-destroying cold; food shortages and riots in the United States and abroad; significant global loss of life; and social, political, and economic upheaval."

Summary: A new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645.

The United Nations, including most of its hired “scientists”, has been deliberately ignoring the effect of the sun on our climate. Perhaps it is time for honest people to ask:
