Back to the Ice Age—Again?

Just when you think the science of climate change is all settled and comfy, along comes news from the scientific community that we may be on the brink of an imminent “mini ice age.”

Haven’t we seen this movie before? How long until a sequel to the population bomb comes out, and a remake of Soylent Green? (Previous attempts to remake Soylent have fizzled, but who knows. . .)

Anyway, from ScienceAlert:

A ‘mini ice age’ is coming in the next 15 years

A new model that predicts the solar cycles more accurately than ever before has suggested that solar activity will drop by 60 percent between 2030 and 2040, which means in just 15 years’ time, Earth could sink into what researchers are calling a mini ice age.

Such low solar activity has not been seen since the last mini ice age, called the Maunder Minimum, which plunged the northern hemisphere in particular into a series of bitterly cold winters between 1645 and 1715. . .

Maybe this is why Al Gore decided to pack on the extra weight. In any case, good to see that the climatistas have all their bases covered, no matter what happens.

UPDATE: Looks like it may have started already; notice the reversing trend of Arctic sea ice over the last few years in this chart:
