Even though global temperature rise has stalled for at least 17 years, the Alarmists are still trying to convince us that our greatest threat is from warming.
In fact, an even greater threat is a repeat of the Little Ice Age (LIA) that lasted between ~1650 to 1850.
As early as last June, Ice Age Now reported
During each of the 18 deep solar minima of Maunder type with a bicentennial cycle in the during the last 7,500 years, deep cooling was observed, while during periods of high maxima – global warming.
By looking at Total Solar Irradiance (TSI), astrophysicist Dr Habibullo I. Abdussamatov of Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory says he can define and predict well in advance the direction and amplitude of forthcoming climate changes.
From the early 90s, Dr Abdussamatov has observed bicentennial decrease in both the TSI and the portion of its energy absorbed by the Earth, which, he says, will result in a temperature drop in approximately 2014.
Then, due to the ensuing increase of albedo and decrease in greenhouse gases, the absorbed portion of solar energy and the influence of the greenhouse effect will additionally decline.
He expects the onset of a deep bicentennial minimum of TSI in 2042±11, and the beginning of a Little Ice Age – the 19th Little Ice Age in the past 7500 years – in 2055±11.Reports from around the world indicate that we may be headed for another Little Ice Age.

German meteorologists say that the start of 2013 is now the coldest in 208 years - and now German media has quoted Russian scientist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov from the St. Petersburg Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory as showing it is proof as he said earlier that we are heading for a "Mini Ice Age."
first made his prediction in 2005 said that after studying sunspots and their relationship with climate change on Earth, we are now on an "unavoidable advance towards a deep temperature drop."
Building on observations made by English astronomer Walter Maunder, Dr Abdussamatov, said he had found that the Earth cools and warms in a 200-year cycles.
The last big freeze known as the Little Ice Age was between 1650 and 1850 which he said coincided with Maunder’s findings that there had been no sunspots between 1645 and 1715.From UK, the Daily Star announces: (link)
MINI ICE AGE TO HIT NEXT YEAR
AS Britain shivers through the coldest Easter ever, experts say we could be heading for a new Ice Age.
Their frosty prediction comes as the Met Office has warned that temperatures will remain up to 10C below average until about April 20 – not just the UK, but in the rest of the world as well.
Experts have declared the start of 2013 the coldest for 208 years, and they reckon it could become a whole lot colder.Again quoting Russian scientist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov from the St Petersburg Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory who claims that it is proof we are heading for a mini ice age.
“We are now on an unavoidable advance towards a deep temperature drop.” According to Dr Abdussamatov, the Earth cools and warms in 200-year cycles.
The last big freeze, known as the Little Ice Age, ended in 1805. And he claims the next freezing period for the Earth will begin next year.The German Herald also quotes (or possibly misquotes) Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov (link)
Prof Warns Mini Ice Age has Started
Talking to German media (Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov) who first made his prediction in 2005 said that after studying sunspots and their relationship with climate change on Earth, we are now on an "unavoidable advance towards a deep temperature drop."

The last global decrease of temperature (the most cold phase of the Little Ice Age) was observed not only in Europe, North America and Greenland, but also in any other part of the world during the Maunder minimum of sunspot activity and of the total solar irradiance in 1645–1715 years.
"All channels in the Netherlands were frozen, glaciers were on the advance in Greenland and people were forced to leave their settlements, inhabited for several centuries.
"The Thames river in London and Seine in Paris were frozen over every year. Humanity has always been prospering during the warm periods and suffering during the cold ones. The climate has never been and will never be stable."Recently Piers Corbyn (link) announced that
“The CO2 story is over. It has been pointing the world in the wrong direction for too long. The serious implications of the developing mini ice age to agriculture and the world economy through the next 25 to 35 years must be addressed.”
World cooling is now locked in says Corbyn, citing the decrease in average solar activity and a jet stream that is often further south than normal, resulting in extreme weather events.
