ICE - The New Global Warming!

Following up on our NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics blog post on Moscow, the New York Times  reports on a "gigantic midwinter storm" (which) buried the Northeast in snow on Saturday, leaving behind a debilitated and disoriented region digging through plump white drifts and reeling from gale-force winds.

And the usual gang of suspects will be coming out and saying - "It's man-made CO2 that is causing this climate disruption!"

So is the Climate Warming?  We certainly know that it has done so since that bottom of the little ice age.

As Time Magazine  (Another Ice Age? Monday, June 24, 1974 ) and Newsweek reported in the 70s, perhaps we are now headed for a new ice-age.

In fact,  in 2013, we are.

If you look at the proxies for temperature of our fragile planet you soon discover that, in fact the ice-age seems to be more natural than the temperature times that we happily co-exist in.

So, what is our future?

As IceAgeNow reported in Nov 2012:
Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research at Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in St. Petersburg, Russia, is suggesting the next Grand Minimum in this paper: Bicentennial Decrease of the Total Solar Irradiance Leads to Unbalanced Thermal Budget of the Earth.
“From early 90s we observe bicentennial decrease in both the TSI and the portion of its energy absorbed by the Earth,” says Abdussamatov. “The Earth as a planet will henceforward have negative balance in the energy budget which will result in the temperature drop in approximately 2014.” 

And before that, in July, 2012:

Earth has been cooling for 3,500 years
