Researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have found evidence in the Western Arctic of a massive flood of fresh water believed to have been the cause of an abrupt cold snap that began around 13 kya. This abrupt climate change is known as the Younger Dryas which is believed to have ended 1000 years of global warming.
Just what brought about the Younger Dryas has been an issue for debate and speculation with most scientists believing it was brought about by a sudden influx of huge amounts of freshwater from melting ice sheets and glaciers. This fresh water rushed into the Atlantic and disrupted the deep water circulation system that moves warm water and releases heat into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, geologic evidence for this has been lacking.

Evidence of such a flood was undertaken near where the MacKenzie River enters the Arctic Ocean forming the border between Canada’s Yukon and Northwest Territories. Sediment cores were gathered along the continental slope east of the river. Analyzing these core samples the team evidence of a huge freshwater flood dating to about 13 kya. Continue Reading
Below are some quotes from the article at the link below regarding global cooling. The so called “experts” have prepared us for the WRONG thing folks! If it does indeed turn out to be global cooling we are going to see human death on a scale never imagined. In fact, I predict that the dawn of another Ice Age (not a “mini” one) will put humans in a mass extinction event! See the article link below….
“As global temperatures, after a short spurt at the end of the last century, have already been showing stagnation or cooling over the last nineteen years or more, the world should now fear the real and detrimental effects of cooling, rather than being hysterical about limited, beneficial or probably now non-existent further warming.
Warmer times are times of success and prosperity for man-kind and for the biosphere. For example during the Roman warm period the climate was warmer and wetter so that the Northern Sahara was the breadbasket of the Roman empire.
But the coming end of the present Holocene interglacial will eventually again result in a mile high ice sheet over much of the Northern hemisphere. Continue Reading
Winter is here and it’s a month early! It’s snowing in Montana, Wyoming, and Utah and according to the LA Times Mammoth Lake in the Sierras got about 3 inches of snow yesterday and the plows had to be called out to clear the road. This comes on top of snow from last winter in the Sierras that didn’t melt causing the ski resorts to remain open all summer. Forecasters say warmer weather is expected this weekend with highs in the 50s and lows in the 20s (if you want to call that warmer weather).
North Lake Tahoe, Sept 22, 2017, Placer Co Sheriff
The snow has come about a month early just as the aspens are turning colors and residents have not forgotten last winter when snow also came early and pounded them with 40 FEET of the white stuff! Yesterdays early snowfall also reached north Lake Tahoe leaving a couple of inches.
A few days ago I was reading an editorial by a noted meteorologist who noted that when we look back at the planet’s ancient weather we find that the warming periods have lasted about 12,000 years. The last ice age ended about 12,000 years ago so if this time frame is correct we can expect a return of the ice at any time now. Some researchers are already warning that we are on the verge of entering a possible “mini ice age” but they don’t know for certain. Is it nothing at all but hype? Will it be a mini ice age? Or will it be a full blown major ice age that will end human civilization as we know it? And btw they are saying tiis mini ice age is due in 2019.
The early snowfall in the Sierras is not unusual nor unheard of as it has happened before but what is significant is that much of last winters snow didn’t melt so now there is snow on top of snow and that is how glaciers form. Tioga Pass on the eastern entryway to Yosemite National Park was closed due to snow yesterday temporarily along with a few other roads in the area. NBC reported the snow as a “dusting” but Mammoth residence say it was MORE than just a dusting and that’s to be expected as NBC has a political agenda to push “global warming.” Continue Reading

The ice up north is growing instead of melting! This is something to definitely keep an eye on!!
Archaeologists don’t know why the Clovis Culture and beasts such as the saber-toothed tiger, the Mammoth, and Mastodon suddenly disappeared. The Clovis people lived around 12.8 kya and a recent discovery might shed some light on their disappearance along with their furry friends. A study conducted by the University of South Carolina has found an abundance of platinum at 11 Clovis sites across the US. Platinum is an element associated with asteroids and comets and other space objects.
This study adds to a previous study by Harvard University researchers who found platinum in ice core samples from Greenland back in 2013. The SC researchers found an abundance of the element in sediment layers that coincide with the Younger Dryas period which was a period of extreme cooling beginning about 12.8 kya and lasting for 1400 years. This period saw the return of ice age conditions for that period and the cause of this is uncertain. What we do know is that it brought about the demise of the Clovis Culture and that there appears to have been a MASS EXTINCTION event in North America at the time. Continue Reading
Scientists are “struggling” to explain why not one BUT AT LEAST 58 glaciers in New Zealand have been advancing since 1983. Lead researchers Andrew Mackintosh who is obviously a global warming advocate said it is “unusual” for glaciers to advance when the vast majority of glaciers in the world have not been advancing, or so he claims. And, of course, he added, this is especially odd in these times of “our warming world.” Hey Andrew GIVE IT UP BUDDY!! The whole world now knows how the rising temps have been lied about by people just like you!!
He went on to say, “We found that LOWER TEMPERATURES cause the glaciers to advance rather than increased precipitation as previously thought.” Seriously? And you needed a study to figure that out??? What wasted money!!
But, Mackintosh wasn’t done yet. “These periods of REDUCED TEMPERATURE affected the entire New Zealand region, and they were significant enough for the glaciers to re-advance in spite of human-induced climate change,” he continued. Still pushing the human caused climate change I see. DREAM ON! I suggest Andrew become far more worried about the slowing North Atlantic circulation and the growing ice at the poles as witnesses a few months ago by a team of global warming scientists who went to the Arctic to see the ice melt due to global warming and human caused climate change and who were SHOCKED by the amount of ice they found instead!
So the “logic” in this guys JUNK SCIENCE is that no matter what, HUMANS cause glaciers to advance and retreat. Laughable!! Sorry Andrew but we are coming to the end of the Holocene warming period and the ice will soon return as some scientists are now saying now. This guy should be barred from doing any further research IMO.
Oh and btw the report says the glaciers grew between 1983 and 2008 (and they still are btw). So why did it take this researchers EIGHT YEARS to report this???
