According to a study by British and Russian universities, a mini-ice age that would freeze large rivers could reach northern Europe in less than two decades. A mathematical result of the Sun’s magnetic activity suggests that temperatures could start falling here from 2021.


Europe’s last great ice age 20,000 years ago.

Indeed, a teamledby math professorValentinaZharkovaattheUniversityofNorthumbria in Englandrelied on worksfromMoscowtopredictthemovementsoftwomagneticwavesproducedbytheSun.Fromtheseresults, hepredicts a rapiddecayofmagneticwaves for threesolar cycles beginners in 2021 and for 33 years.

A very weak magnetic activity on the Sun corresponds to historically documented cold periods on Earth. Professor Zharkova claims a 97% accuracy for the result that coincides with the previous mini-glaciations, including the Maunder Minimum Period (1645 – 1715), which has frozen the largest rivers north of Europe.

However, hewarnsthathismathematicalresearchcannotbeused as formalproofthattherewillbe a mini-ice age thistimearound, especiallybecauseof global warming.So, wemayonlysee a drop in temperaturesnotgoing as far as glaciation.
