Why would I be writing about an Ice Age solution with the world burning up? First of all, the “warmest year on record” hype is bogus. Climate scientists Dr. Roy Spencer (former NASA scientist) and Dr. John Christy (former IPCC lead author) have maintained a graph of satellite data showing no warming for more than a decade and a half. When the claim came out about 2014 having been the warmest year, one journalist found out from the NASA scientists behind the claim that “they were only 38% sure this was true.” In other words, they were not very certain at all. But beyond that fiasco, Earth has spent 87.4% of its time with far warmer temperatures—no ice! So, this minor thaw remains unremarkable in the long history of Earth.

And “Ice Age?” What’s that about? We currently live in an Ice Age that is 2.6 Million years old. As long as we have those little white things at the poles persisting throughout the year, we are in an Ice Age.

Loving the Idea of Terraforming Planets

In the mid-70s, one of my passions was figuring out how to terraform Mars—to make it habitable, like Earth. I spent weeks studying the equations of things like planetary atmospherics, albedo and effective surface temperature. I even called up the USGS office in Flagstaff, Arizona to get the latest NASA data on Mars. Several days later, I got the package and couldn’t have been happier.

If “terraforming” means to make like Earth, why would we need to terraform Earth? The more critical part of the definition is to make a planet habitable like Earth. But what if Earth itself becomes uninhabitable, or only marginally habitable? How could that happen? Perhaps the most likely way it could happen is for the current Ice Age interglacial to end. The geological epoch we call the Holocene is an interglacial period of the current Ice Age. If it were to end with those two little white things remaining at the poles, we would suffer another 90,000 years of Ice Age glacial cold. The Ice Age solution—making Earth habitable again—would involve Global Warming.

The Ice Age Solution is Global Warming

But isn’t Global Warming supposed to be bad for us? Well, that’s what the United Nations keeps trying to sell us, but they’re wrong. But what about the 97% of climate scientists who agree with the UN? That’s another lie. Really? What! Are you some kind of conspiracy theorist? Sure looks like it, but hold onto your hat. Conspiracies are dirt ordinary, so much so, there are at least 1.7 million new conspiracies starting every hour.

So many scientists disagree with the United Nations and their political climate division, it’s not even funny. Many of the climate scientists who worked on the various IPCC reports of the past two decades disagree with them—scientists like Dr. John Christy, University of Alabama at Huntsville and Dr. Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One scientist, Dr. Paul Reiter, was so angry with the UN’s corruption of science he took them to court to get his name removed from their fake “consensus.”

The United Nations ignores the fact that we live in an ongoing Ice Age. In fact, they want to cool down the planet in this Ice Age. Does that strike you as somewhat psychopathic or delusional? Looks like someone has a hidden agenda. Either that or they’re loonier than a mad hatter.

Solar physicists have known for some time that the sun is likely headed for a new Solar minimum, like the Maunder Minimum of the 1600s—the kind that cooled the planet during the Little Ice Age. The only problem is, the Holocene is also 500+ years overdue to end, based on average interglacial durations. The combination of the two could spell deadly Frozen Climate in the near future—as soon as the 2050s. We might be seeing the effects of this as soon as 2020.

Ice Age Solution Involves Preparation

What would we do if most of our farm land is under ice or suffers from severe drought because of Global Cooling? When the oceans cool, we have less evaporation and that leads to fewer clouds and less rain. That means more starvation, unless people prepare by moving food growing closer to the equator.

Nearly everything bad the UN and Al Gore say about Global Warming is really a problem with Global Cooling—everything except rising sea levels. Granted, melt the polar ice, you’re going to get sea levels rising. But we have to ask ourselves, which is more vital: losing some coastal real estate, or losing Billions of lives from cold and starvation?

We need to prepare for growing crops in the tropics to feed 7+ Billion people. How soon could it happen? How about later this afternoon? Or it could happen in 5,000 years. No one knows for certain, but the current signs are not promising for more global warming. We’ve already had 17+ years without a warming trend and the sun is going into one of its Solar minimums—the 1,000-year kind. The last time this happened, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age. The Vikings had to abandon Greenland, which still is not as warm now as it was then. And numerous violent storms racked the vicinity of England, including the Great Storm of 1703, and the one which killed the hopes of Spain in 1588.

The Most Aggressive Ice Age Solution Involves Ending the Ice Age

Ending the current Ice Age is certainly an ambitious goal, but certainly one worth considering. While the psychopaths at the United Nations and in the Obama White House promote Global Cooling, we need to do what we can to protect the future of civilization and the lives of our fellow citizens.

But how do we end the Ice Age? The most obvious method is to melt the polar ice and maintain warmer climate, especially in the polar regions.

We need to achieve an End to the current Ice Age despite the coming Solar minimum. The following are suggestions for possible solutions. No single idea may be enough.

  • Absorption (dark) panels to decrease albedo (planetary reflectivity) in ice regions. Possible problems: panels could become encrusted with snow or frost, making them too reflective. Storms could rip them loose. Melting glaciers could displace them.
  • Black (or dark green?) panels across non-glacial lands just outside glacial field would create strong updraft, pulling polar cold, warming it and sending some of it pole-ward again.
  • Reflectors in orbit, increasing warmth directed to Earth at mid-to-high latitudes (non-icebound).
  • Dark panels in oceans to absorb more heat. Is this worth the effort? Could panels be dark enough to work better than deep, open ocean? May not be cost-effective, but this certainly should be studied as a possibility.
  • Ocean current deflectors to redirect warm waters toward Antarctica. This could increase glacier mass, at first, but eventually could help to melt the glacial cover. Building walls up from sea mounts may be too costly, but certainly more cost effective than the $Trillions being planned for Carbon Tax.
  • Pipelines delivering billions of cubic meters of geothermally-heated water to radiative panels in colder regions. Possible danger: creating destructive air flow (storms); once the ice is gone, this will no longer be a problem.
  • Wind deflectors to direct warm air toward poles. Possible danger: creating more storms? Deflectors may need to be so tall and large that this may be unfeasible.

What Are Your Ideas for an Ice Age Solution?

On a project this big and this important, we need ideas. We need not only every possible idea for warming methods, but we also need ideas for funding, implementing and promoting (marketing) this campaign. We have a large, uphill battle to fight with Rockefeller-funded Global Cooling campaigns choking all the airwaves and other news outlets. What is your Ice Age solution?
