San Francisco Resident/Astronaut Scares the World – Global Cooling, A New Ice Age?

It seems there’s a little black spot on the sun today. It’s the same old thing as yesterday.

That’s very disconcerting to San Francisco resident Phil Chapman, a geophysicist who was the first Australian to become a NASA astronaut. You see, we need more of those little spots on El Sol so things don’t get too frosty. He actually wants you to pray for more sunspots.

That’s right, forget global warming - an ice age is coming and the only question is when it will get here.

Hang in there little doggy, there’s a chance Philip K Chapman is wrong.

Do you buy all that?

    Hmmmm.

    Actually yes I do. Unlike GW or AGW the past history of the Maunder Minimum and the Dalton Minimum are very well recorded. The last Dalton Minimum saw 20′ of snow in Maryland. And it’s entirely possible, as during the last Dalton Minimum, that we could have years without any summers.

    It’s very bad for agriculture obviously. Consider what would happen if the USA went from winter to early spring to late autumn to winter? No crops at all except in the southern most latitudes. Most of the grain belt and corn belt not at all arable.

    *shrug* you can grow food at higher temperatures, even if it’s not the same specific species as before. But when the temperature hits below 32F, then there’s no such thing as farming.
