Big chill forecast for 2013 as Sun “shuts down”

After Europe’s superheated 2011 winter and spring those whacky scientists are predicting a “little ice age” after 2013 which could last “up to 70 years”.


The latest long-range space forecast predicts a prolonged drop in solar activity after the next peak… in the past, such periods have coincided with lower-than-expected temperatures on Earth. The most famous example is the Maunder Minimum, a 70-year period with virtually no sunspots from 1645 to 1715. Average temperatures in Europe sank so low during that period that it came to be known as “the Little Ice Age.”
