How Long Until the Cold Starts Killing Millions

It is not going to be fun trying to survive in the northern reaches of our planet as the earth cools dramatically. As we are already seeing this year, it is not going to take a full-blown ice age to wipe out the northern reaches of the planet. In Russia, which is more used to dealing with the cold, Europe and the United States and Canada we are seeing how even the first innings of a mini-ice age can cause chaos and a complete shutdown of human activity.

Remember that movie about the sudden onset of a new ice age where the scientist picks up a marker and sweeps it across the belly of America and says to the President, evacuate everyone below this line. Rapid cooling is happening to our beloved earth and there is nothing we can do about it except fantasize about global warming. The ice and snow that is headed our way is going to bury civilization in the northern latitudes in the next few decades.

Not going to happen from one week to another, like in the move ‘The Day After’, but this year is showing us how fast things can change, how deep the temperatures can drop, how snow accumulations can mount and how normal activities can be curtailed. Not much goes on during a blizzard and when the snow gets too deep roofs start collapsing. Perhaps the destined financial collapse will happen first, but cold climate change will offer us a staggering challenge that few are preparing for.

Professor William Patterson of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, and his colleagues, using the most precise record of the climate from paleo history ever generated tell almost the same story we saw in the movie The Day After Tomorrow, when the world went stone cold from one week to another. Professor Patterson published his research saying, “JUST months – that’s how long it took for Europe to be engulfed by an ice age.”

The frozen woolly mammoths discovered in Russia completely frozen and intact with plants still in their stomachs have long made many ponder just how fast the planet can freeze. We can see by the rapidly increasing cold and record-breaking snow falls that we should be planning for a bone chilling future.

As each day passes the evidence climbs, as predicted by scientists, that a steep drop of temperatures would ensue—first dropping temperatures to where they were in the very cold late 1800s and then going down from there to mini-ice age conditions that will threaten a great part of the northern latitudes over the next 10 years.
