Next Ice Age  

Next Ice Age


Hannes Grobe/AWI -  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age

    The modern Ice Age cycles that started two million years ago are far from over
we may be at the half-way point

the current interglacial period is ending
the condition for glaciation is resuming
beware of the corresponding loss of agriculture

 

Interglacial warm periods, like the present, are rare anomalies,
they are short 13,000 year holidays every 100,000 years. 

Numerous cycles are interacting

The longest cycles are the 150 million year cycles

The have caused four major glaciation periods that are known to have occurred in geologic time, spaced 150 million years apart. These extremely long cycles appears to reflect cyclical variables outside of our galaxy, as all other explanations are seriously flawed to the point that they don't make any sense at all.

Superimposed are 'shorter' 62-million-year cycles

Some theories have it that the shorter cycles are caused by the solar system bobbing up and down across the galactic plane (ecliptic) as it orbits around the galactic center. No cause for such an effect is known. However, in an electric galaxy such an effect would mirror on the large scale what has been observed within the solar heliosphere in the form of the spiraling nature of the heliospheric current sheet. A similar phenomenon appears to exist on the galactic scale.  The 62-million year cycles can be explained as a phenomenon that is caused by electric action as we see it reflected in the wave action of the current sheet that extends across the solar heliosphere on the ecliptic plane. A spinning wave-like pattern has been observed resulting from electromagnetic interaction of the electric current with the 'spinning' solar magnetic field. On the galactic scale such a phenomenon would lift our solar system cyclically above and below the galactic ecliptic, as is currently assumed to be happening.

On this larger stage the galactic spiral arms are the current sheet. Consequently one would expect to find similar wave actions occurring on the larger stage of the galaxy, affecting the stars and their relative position to the galactic ecliptic plane, resulting in electric current density variations and corresponding cosmic-ray density variations, such as we see secondarily reflected in the 62 million year cycles superimposed in the above graph. 

If we look at the last of the 62 million year cycles (above) and compare it with known events, we find the freeze-up of Antarctica (around 30 million years ago), and its subsequent melting, and renewed freeze-up, to fall perfectly within the timeframe of the current 62-million year cycle.


palaeotemperature covering the entire Phenerozoic Eon

We are presently at a low point of the 62 million year cycle, which corresponds with the current Pleistocene Epoch, the most intense Ice Age Epoch of this cycles, which began 2 million years ago and appears to be presently at its mid point, being centered at the low point of both the 150 and 62 million year cycles. 

During the last million years of the Pleistocene Epoch (the current Ice Age Epoch), deep glaciation has occurred, interspersed every 100,000 years with warm interglacial periods of an average duration in the 13,000-year range. 

Four major 'short-term' cycles are related the 100,000-year glacial/interglacial cyclical patterns. Of these three cycles are related to the orbital characteristics of the Earth. They are generally referred to as the Milankovitch Cycles. And there is a fourth cycle in the 100,000-year timeframe that is superimposed in step with the Milankovitch Cycles are related to. Since this fourth cycle is driving the Ice Age show, that the Milankovitch Cycles stand in the background of, and this cycle is evidently routed in the dynamics of the galaxy itself, precise perditions of the start of the next transition to glaciation is not possible, the moral imperative must therefore be to make the necessary preparations for a new agricultural infrastructure for mankind that won't be affected by the cold of the coming glaciation, regardless of when this may happen.
