Global warming ended ten years ago, and Solar Cycle 24 looks like a rerun of the Dalton Minimum. Over the next several decades, we may be looking at the onset of another Little Ice Age . . . or even, possibly, a big one.

If that’s the case, humanity needs to start planning now to adapt to a cooling world. Unfortunately, the people who could actually sound the alarm are the scientists who have spent the last decade warning that the world was in imminent danger from global warming. If they switch to predicting global cooling now, their credibility will fall to zero. But if they don’t, who will? Would the public even listen to warnings of a impending ice age?

I’m not sure that anything can be done.
