We Entered the Ice Age after the Holocene Climate Optimum
Earth actually entered a new Ice Age 8 and 10.5 millennia ago, in the Arctic and the Antarctic respectively. Since the Holocene Climate Optimum 8,000 years ago, Greenland’s temperature declined by 4.9 degrees Celsius to its lowest trough in 1700. The subsequent 1700-2016 trough-to-peak temperature rise is the largest temperature increase in 8,000 years. Glacier ice accumulation also started 5,000 years ago, reaching its peak during the Little Ice Age. However, since the mid-19th century much of this glacier ice melted as the sun entered an extreme grand solar maximum phase, which human activity has exacerbated.
Dismissing Natural Climate Change Risks is Dangerous
This website promotes the urgent need to prepare the world for a 21st century switch to a global cooling phase, and before running out of oil and gas in the decades ahead. This climate switch will be associated with catastrophic risks linked to the impact of colder climates and precipitation extremes (drought, rainfall, snow) on agriculture. We now live in an era of enhanced risk for climate-forcing volcanic eruptions that, if they occur, will rapidly cool the planet and trigger glacier ice expansion. Increased earthquake risks are also likely. Linked to this cold climate switch and grand solar minimum is the enhanced prospect of pandemic flu, something to which humans are highly vulnerable.
Best-Practice Ideas for living Sustainably at Home
Best practice principles for building or retrofitting your home in order to reduce your energy needs, operate your home energy-efficiently, and power it using renewable energy. Practical advice is given on how to minimize water use in the home while efficiently using, re-using, and harvesting water, and recharging groundwater. Best practice methods for how to grow climate-adapted food at home using a variety of urban and climate-adapted methods, while ensuring you have food stockpiled, a seed bank, and food growing systems ready to go.
