End of global warming!

According to the Daily Express the sun is going into hibernation and we are heading for a mini Iceage! This I remeber was predicted many years ago (50+). So maybe Greta has got it wrong. Evilhttps://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1237178/weather-warning-ice-age-earth-sun-hibernates-solar-mi...

Re: End of global warming!

Love the story - but you do realise the 'Daily Depress' appears to live on a different planet? 😀🤣

Yup, @TTman , I guessed you gave the story as much (or little) credence as I did, but we can't be too unkind to the poor people that write this piffle, can we? 😈

Re: End of global warming!

BTW, @TTman , it appears the 'story' was lifted from that other brilliant 'newspaper' - 'The Sun', so it is even less believable.😁

Re: End of global warming!

Ice age, hot age, one is as believable as the other.

At least the cold one should be easier to fix. Just take all the coal fired power stations out of mothballs and remove all the exhaust filters from diesel and petrol cars. Get some serious pollution going.

If that has little to no effect then Greta was wrong again.

Re: End of global warming!

So far in my lifetime we've been warned of ice age > global warming > climate change > climate emergency, and now mini ice age.  Yet we are all still here, as a species, and doing rather well, perhaps too well.

Re: End of global warming!

Well somebody is suddenly taking it more seriously as reading earlier that new petrol and diesel vehicle sales will be banned as from 2035 bringing the date forward by five years. Then we have the recognition finally that the rise of SUVs makes a mockery of the electric car push. 

Had to smile at that last bit as that's exactly what will be happening - we'll be pushing them to the next charging point.

Meanwhile on the weather front apart from a few chilly nights and wet weekends, winter seems to have passed by with a whimper as I watched two sparrows on top of my still well stocked wood store going at it hammer and tongs before checking out the nesting box.

Weird and interesting at the same time.

Trust no one, and prepare for everything.😃

Assuming of course the national grid hasn't gone into 3-day week mode and cut power to various regions as there's not enough power to go round to keep the electric go-karts charged... 😁

Don't speak too soon, it isn't all that unusual to have snow in mid-March.

Daily Express 🤣

 

Is that the paper that has predicted a white Christmas for the last 20 years?

If they keep predicting it, they will be right one year; it's like playing the same numbers on the lottery, one day they will come up.

Re: End of global warming!

Like monkeys on a typewriter coming up with the complete works of Shakespeare you mean?

Winning a mega million amount on the lottery currently stands at about1 in 258 million so my money would be on the end of the world happening well before that - well for most of us anyway. 

There again, I'm not daft enough to buy a ticket. 😃
