--A SHOCKING CLIMATE DISCOVERY!!

yeaterday, i browsed the magizine racks at Barnes and Noble. there was an intersting cover to a mag called "discovery"! this mag deals with science and technology.
The cover had a picture of ice and water and something about the "Little ice age".

I read this article, that the cover refered to.
OH BOY!
seems that a mjor Oceanography institute, near Boston, has the ocean cores, the science, the Results, to make a dire Pronouncement:
THAT GLOBAL WARMING WILL *VERY* SOON BEGIN A NEW ICE AGE!
very soon and "instantaiinious"! "instantainious" ----as in "a year or so time span"!!
and with in the next ten years.

He says...."take the coldest winters within the last 30 years, in the Northeast section of the country[usa]
and make them MILD compared to what will be and will be for HUNDREDS of years....300 years!"

all of Europe too. make england have the climate of the labrador climate.

one article about this, on the net, is this one at....

"""
When 'climate change' is referred to in the press, it
normally means greenhouse warming, which, it is
predicted, will cause flooding, severe windstorms,
and killer heat waves. But warming could also lead,
paradoxically, to abrupt and drastic cooling — a
catastrophe that could threaten the end of
civilization."""
==========

>>>I hope never to see a failure of the northernmost loop of the North
Atlantic Current, because the result would be a population crash that
would take much of civilization with it, all within a decade. Ways to
postpone such a climatic shift are conceivable, however —
old-fashioned dam-and-ditch construction in critical locations might
even work. Although we can't do much about everyday weather, we may nonetheless be able to stabilize
the climate enough to prevent an abrupt cooling.>>>>
