WHAT CLIMATE SHOCK MAY THE EARTH LET US EXPERIENCE IN THE FUTURE?
“We have to face the reality of climate change.It is arguably the biggest threat we are facing today.”
The climate change. The political question number one for the liberal oriented governments and the main reason for some of conservative opponents to provoke them. They can not understand that the history of Earth evolution has nothing to do with liberalism or conservatism but with the greedy corporatism of the whole mankind. Politicians are changeable but their destructive policy cost us our future. The same trend of irrational behaviour towards environment is happening worldwide: in America, Europe, Russia, Asia, Africa and Australia. The seed of human madness is planted everywhere and the human race will harvest the cataclysm very soon if not sooner.
It is not only about the climate change and the global warming caused by unlimited industrial aggravation, it is about the fact that we bite this Earth without regrets, exploit without controls, demolish without break and at the end of the day, we expect it will endure for us. This blue planet can live without us but we can not live without it. At this moment, the people are the worst pest ever and I can only imagine how the pests will be treated if we don’t push the button for back drive.
The global warming issue is old as our greenhouse effects used to damage the atmosphere. The Earth’s average surface temperature is getting higher due to the greenhouse gases emitted from burnt fossil fuels or deforestation (e.g. carbon dioxide CO2) because the heat has no chance to escape from the Earth and the planet increase the basic temperature. Now, when we think of so many industrial complexes around the world, it doesn’t surprise the high level of greenhouse gas emissions.Unfortunately, the mutual negotiations among countries to work on alternative assets to stop the Earth’s temperature alert have all failed. The stubborn anti-environment global policy that has been led for years is based on financial interests of big players and not on the interests of the worldwide population and nature. Everyone wants the piece of cake and almost no one thinks of the future. Here and now. The concern about what will happen tomorrow it is not anyone’s business and for sure doesn’t bring profit.
The impact that global warming has on the complete nature and wildlife habitat is visible on every single step and the Earth is experiencing the cancer metastasis. It is late to amput the critical points but there is always a thought that something could be done before we are really finally erased as the race that didn’t make.
But, behind the global warming, there is one other issue which seems to concern scientists lately. The Earth is in the interglacial phase of evolution (Holocene), the stage known as times without large ice-sheets which were typical for a glacial period or ice age. The most recent glacial stage was between 120,000 and 11,500 years ago and since then, the planet is enjoying the Holocene. Now, the question is , when will be the new ice age, considering the all signs by the road? Majority of the climatologist believe and warn it will be very soon, at least the initial or short phase of ice age.
The environmentalists scream that the new ice age will be the outcome of human unlimited activity against the Earth but the facts are telling us something different.Actually, the potential glacial period will be the result of diminishing solar activity, according to the study from 2016:“It’s based on a mathematical model that shows the sun might ‘quiet’ down in the coming years thus impacting our climate as well.A few months ago, NASA published a study showing that Antarctica is actually gaining more ice than it is losing. They made the announcement after using satellites to examine the heights of the region’s ice sheet. The findings contradict the prevailing theory that Antarctica has actually been shrinking, however.The most recent research to examine this topic comes from the National Astronomy Meeting in Wales, where Valentina Zharkova, a mathematics professor from Northumbria University (UK), presented a model that can predict what solar cycles will look like far more accurately than was previously possible. She states that the model can predict their influence with an accuracy of 97 percent, and says it is showing that Earth is heading for a ‘mini ice age’ in approximately fifteen years.”
In spite of predicted freezing, the topic is hot. It seems that scientists almost deny the importance of global warming but it is far away from it. They do not deny it, they research further and see the future frame of the climate problems. The climatology is not alone in this but rather relied on astronomy and astrophysics. So, basically, the maths tells us that our Earth is getting slowly into the ice age and that we will be frozen very soon. No, we will not be frozen but we will experience the severe decrease of global temperature This type of climate has been recorded in history due to the reduced solar activity and its cooling:” In 17th century, though, there was a prolonged reduction in solar activity called the Maunder minimum, which lasted roughly from 1645 to 1700. During this period, there were only about 50 sunspots instead of the usual 40-50 thousand sunspots. ” Very cold winters and very cold summers, especially in Europe and North America. The Maunder minimum turned the river Thames and the Danube into froze, Moscow River was every six month covered by ice and the Greenland was in glaciers.
Coming out with the term “Ice age” is too much, not only for the scientists but also for the ordinary people However, the expression “Little Ice age” sounds more positive and sounds like a chance for all of us to survive the Sun’s cool phase. There were so many predictions that the Earth will burn because of the high level of Sun’s activity but here we go again, now the new model shows us with the maths precision that we might have glacial times by 2030, when it is expected the Maunder minimum of the sun. This is just a spekulation and it could be all but not the “Little Ice Age” but the Earth has a lot of preparations to get into the real ice age. It doesn’t happen overnight. First, the changes in the Earth’s orbit bring the less sunlight, known as insolation which hits then the northern hemisphere during summer. Then, the ice sheets will melt less and will grow in the period of thousands of years. The complete cooling will make ice sheets to move faster and cover more and more of the Earth. This is a long journey for our planet, it could last around 10,000 to 20,000 years for Earth to be brought into an ice age. Regarding the effects of CO2 emissions on possible ice ages, the scientists claim that it is directly linked:“The more CO2 there is in the atmosphere, the lower insolation needs to drop to trigger glaciation.”
Many people when they hear the stories about Ice Age, they immediately think of so many movies illustrated this phenomena.The famous one was “The day After Tomorrow” and almost each of us remembers the tragedy of trying to survive under the snow storm. If there could be some nice death, it is definitely the white death because you are gone while you are falling into sleep. The dangerous winter is not on the corner, that is assured but there will be some outputs of the solar reduced energy and this Earth will feel that, more or less. That must not justify the absence of resistance to the greenhouse effects on the global level and we all must be aware of the silent interchanges that Earth takes.It will hit us suddenly and merciless if we do not stop to destroy what doesn’t belong to us.
Maybe one day, the day after tomorrow, we will wake up and see that winter lasts forever and that sunshine is lost. Then it is too late to ask anyone:“Where will you be?”
