Global Warming Alert: "Mini Ice Age" on the Way

Yes this is just what they predicted when they changed all their predictions to match recent weather patterns.

Winter is coming.

Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows.

That's the warning from a Nasa scientist who fears sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age.

'We see a cooling trend,' Martin Mlynczak of Nasa's Langley Research Center told Space Weather. 'High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy.

'If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold.'

I forget who said it (apologies), but one of the greatest bits of snark ever written on this blog went something like this:

"If only there were some... external factor that could account for the variations in global temperature. Such a hypothetical external factor would have to be very large, though -- on the order of magnitude of our own Sun."
