The Next Ice Age

Post by grumpyviking » Sun Dec 16, 2018 3:52 am

if the ice at the poles melt, all that fresh water coming into the Atlantic and Irish sea will stop the Gulf Stream stone dead and Britain will have a new ice age.

nothing to do with a movie, this was REAL life until about 12,000 years ago for the people of these islands.
whether you make snow shoes or harpoons is entirely your choice.

You mean this ice age?
"This would most likely happen if the increased precipitation and glacial melt water from global warming could flood the North Atlantic with enough fresh water to slow down or even halt the mighty Gulf Stream ocean current. Without the Gulf Stream pumping warm, tropical water to the North Atlantic, average temperatures would cool in Europe and North America by 5°F or more in just a few years--not enough to trigger a full-fledged ice age, but enough cooling to bring snows in June and killing frosts in July and August to New England and northern Europe, such as occurred in the famed "year without a summer" in 1816"

not sure where you get your facts but it would be cold enough for most of the North of England and all of Scotland to be uninhabitable as was the case in the last ice age.

It is important to note that the 1816 year without summer is attributed to the massive explosion and eruption of Mt Tambora in 1815 spewing ash into the upper atmosphere and creating a mini nuclear winter.

Read more about the 200th anniversary of the year without summer here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/cap ... 19aafb659e

i saw no link to a weather site just a reference to some movie.
of no matter, whatever happens we Brits are the ones who will have to live with the consequences of losing the Gulf Stream, thats the only thing that gives these islands their mild climate.

Solar input (and in some cases volcanic output) is the deciding factor. If the sun goes into an extended quiet period (e.g. Maunder minimum) we could get a mini ice age...or worse. If one goes by the last glacial/interglacial cycles.... we are due for another ice age. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/abrupt-climat ... l%20Cycles

OP: you need to substantiate the assertion you make in your initial post. Otherwise the rest of us have no way to assess the credibility of this threat. Where are YOU getting your information from?

Well that's a relief. All this worrying and all we had to do is have a federal shutdown to stop the ice age. :awesome:
