Mini ice age coming?

Khabibullo Abdusamatov of the Pulkovo Astronomic Observatory in St. Petersburg said Monday that temperatures will begin falling six or seven years from now, when global warming caused by increased solar activity in the 20th century reaches its peak, RIA Novosti reported.

The coldest period will occur 15 to 20 years after a major solar output decline between 2035 and 2045, Abdusamatov said.

There are many more viable climate change theories out there than just global warming. Too much focus on popular global warming theories could stand to leave us unprepared for something like a mini ice age.
