Record-early Arctic Sea Ice growth is persisting at our northern pole. This may actually be good news, but not for the same reasons the hordes of mindless warmists believe. “Ticking Climate Bomb”: Little Ice Age Imminent.
Contradicting EVERYTHING global warming alarmists have ever been told, a loss of ice at the poles is now thought to be the trigger for global cooling and ice ages. For two decades now, NASA has told us that during bouts of otherwise “global” cooling the poles actually warm — this is likely due to a GSM-induced meridional (wavy) jet stream flow diverting tropical warmth anomalously-far north AND/OR a depletion of the ozone layer high-above the poles that allows-in extra solar/cosmic radiation–including ultraviolet. But regardless of the exact mechanism –a field that remains poorly understood– Arctic sea ice has been in a natural decline in recent decades, an occurrence that is now threatening to set into motion a genuine and inevitable catastrophe: a threat that is often labelled a “ticking climate bomb”.
The Beaufort Gyre is a massive wind-driven current in the Arctic Ocean. The region has been regulating climate and sea ice formation at the top of the world for millennia. Recently, however, something has gone amiss.
During the second half of the 20th century the gyre adhered to a cyclical pattern in which it would shift gears every five to seven years and temporarily spin in a counter-clockwise direction, expelling ice and freshwater into the eastern Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic. But for more than 17 years now, this carousel of ice and freshwater has been spinning faster in its usual clockwise direction, all the while collecting more and more freshwater from three sources: melting sea ice, runoff flowing into the Arctic Ocean from Russian and North American rivers, and the relatively fresh water streaming in from the Bering Sea.
As reported by e360.yale.edu: Today, the Beaufort Gyre now holds as much freshwater as all of the Great Lakes combined, and its continuing clockwise swirl is preventing this enormous volume of ice and cold-freshwater from flushing into the North Atlantic Ocean. Scientists say the gyre will inevitably weaken and reverse direction, and when it does it could expel a massive amount of icy fresh water into the North Atlantic.
Polar oceanographer Andrey Proshutinsky of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has labeled this anticipated surge of water a “ticking climate bomb,” noting that even a partial flush of that growing reservoir –a mere 5 percent– could temporarily cool the climate of Iceland and northern Europe. A larger outflow would actually threaten to shutdown the Gulf Stream, an event that would see ice age conditions sweep Northern and Western Europe almost overnight.
We know this occurs, and have detailed records of a relatively recent event: during the 1960s and 1970s, a surge of fresh Arctic water was released that cooled the top half-mile of parts of the North Atlantic. Known as the Great Salinity Anomaly, British oceanographer Robert R. Dickson said the event represented one of the most persistent and extreme variations in global ocean climate observed during the past century. The surge of ice and freshwater cooled Northern Europe dramatically and disrupted the North Atlantic food chain. Between 1951 and 2010, many of Europe’s exceptionally cold winters occurred during the period of the Great Salinity Anomaly.
The discussed mechanism is believed, by many, to be the ice age trigger, and a newly published scientific paper only adds further support. Entitled, “Evidence for extreme export of Arctic sea ice leading the abrupt onset of the Little Ice Age“, the new study combines marine sediment cores drilled from the Arctic Ocean to the North Atlantic. These records reveal that an abrupt increase in Arctic sea ice and cold freshwater exported to the North Atlantic starting around 1300, peaking in mid-century, and ending abruptly in the late 1300s. Crucially, the paper concludes that external forcing from volcanoes or any other cause may not be necessary for large swings in climate to occur — a previously widely held assumption: “These results strongly suggest that these things can occur out of the blue due to internal variability in the climate system,” said Dr. Martin Miles, researcher in the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado.
The climate jigsaw continues, albeit slowly, to be pieced together.
The next bout of severe cooling is due –climate is cyclic, never linear– and the release of the Beaufort Gyre, in line with a rapidly waning magnetosphere and an intensifying Grand Solar Minimum, hold all the keys necessary.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING.
The “ticking climate bomb” is about to go off.
Prepare accordingly — learn the threats, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
