Either Cycle 24 Starts Up, or Earth Cools Down (Bigtime).

The solar weather report  today is not good; if you like to eat.  There is no solar weather, to speak of.  If solar cycle 24 does not start soon, Earth could quickly sink into another Ice Age – and actually we are about due for one.

Unfortunately, carbon dioxide abatement will have exactly the same impact on the coming and perhaps imminent Ice Age; as human-generated carbon dioxide had on the interglacial warming!  Namely: zero, nada, none. (Except that high carbon dioxide levels may slightly enhance failing crops as the Earth freezes).

 The Coming of a New Ice Age

 BY GERALD E. MARSH
CHICAGO — Contrary to the conventional wisdom of the day, the real danger facing humanity is not global warming, but more likely the coming of a new Ice Age.  What we live in now is known as an interglacial, a relatively brief period between long ice ages.  Unfortunately for us, most interglacial periods last only about ten thousand years, and that is how long it has been since the last Ice Age ended.   How much longer do we have before the ice begins to spread across the Earth’s surface?  Less than a hundred years or several hundred?  We simply don’t know.
