says it's killing in Brownsville Texas that's a reader by the name of Andy and he said that's twice now so far this winter and that's a rare event happening twice is very extraordinary and then I got another email from somebody this afternoon that it was 26 degrees and snowing in Houston I word yeah it's a it's not your imagination there's there's stuff going on it would be interesting to see how many people how many of your listeners tonight or are seeing snow tonight well tonight it's going to be doing I mean today I guess the this this winter weather is shut down the interstates and Louisiana and closed roads and Kentucky and when it closed the runways airport runways in Texas Houston San Antonio and Austin and we're talking far down in the south and and and we're having ice coated bridges and Mississippi and in Alabama and and they're calling for two inches of snow in Alabama so yeah there's a it plays into what I've been saying you know I've been saying for for 20 years ever had an into an ice age and so far I have not had to change my story they don't call it a cold age they called it an ice age so during during the last ice age most of Canada was covered by 1 to 2 miles of ice go straight up I mean but we're talking a lot of ice Seattle was covered by three-quarters of a mile of ice and yet if you went a hundred and fifty miles south of Seattle it was only about seven degrees colder than it is right now so what we're talking about is yes we're talking about more snow and more snow which which ends up accumulating if it gets deep enough it becomes ice but south of the ice sheets life goes on and it may be a little cooler but I think during the last ice age Florida was only like three degrees colder than it is right now the equatorial rainforests melt it stayed almost the same so not everybody has to worry I to me the biggest problem will be there's a cycle to ice ages that shows up in the geologic record going back for millions if not billions of years and there's no reason to think that cycle isn't going to repeat actually there's several little cycles there's one called the solar retrograde cycle where the the Sun has its own little tiny orbit and and it goes into a retrograde motion about every about every 180 years and the earth gets cooler then there's the Little Ice Age cycle that is about every 360 years when the sunspots slow down or almost stop and and so that's another cycle then there's one called the Milankovitch cycle which we've known about since at least the 1970s but that ice ages returned approximately every 11,500 years based on something called precession of the equinoxes and then there's a huge cycle it's it's called orbital stretch but our orbit of the Earth's orbit around the Sun is not a perfect circle it's slightly elliptical and and it doesn't remain elliptical it goes from being close to a circle to to an elliptical and back to close to circle that takes about a hundred and five thousand years and guess what we have an ice age about every hundred and five thousand years the problem that I see today is that every single one of those cycles is now due to hit and I don't I don't see anything that humans can do to stop it I don't think we're causing it and I don't think we can stop it I think global I used to say I thought global warming was a hoax I am beginning more and more to think it's a fraud I had just the things that we hear about global warming well well one of the reasons I say that you know is that the world was getting was getting cooler in the 1970s and and then it started to warm up but then we had this pause you know that began in about 1997 where the warming stopped so the way we used to keep track of that is as near as I can tell is that we kept track of temperatures on land well now we're including the the ocean temperatures in that which we didn't used to do and ocean temperatures I agree ocean temperatures have been going up but I don't think it's caused by humans I think it's caused by underwater volcanic activity so so if but if you take if you take the oceans out of the equation temperatures on land have been going down and you know land is pretty much where really where we live so that's the one that I I just don't think we're getting the true figure of 11,500 years ago we had a we entered into a short I say it's called the Younger Dryas when something like 40% of the world's larger mammals went extinct we're talking about the mammals that weighed over a hundred pounds so the short-faced bear went extinct the mammoths went extinct the mastodon went extinct the saber-tooth tiger and the glyptodont there's so many different animals that went extinct so that was about 11,500 years ago then about 23,000 years ago we had a we entered into an ice age and again that was an extinction I don't think of the name the european forest elephant I think when extinct I don't remember the others and 33,000 years ago we had we went into an ice age and that's when the studies I've read that's when the Neanderthals went extinct so yeah that cycle just shows up in the record you know the we used to think the ice ages began very slowly but in 1997 there was a project called grip Greenland ice core project where they dill drilled deep bores into the ice in central Greenland they went down as much as two miles deep and pulled the cores up so that they could look at ice that had formed as much as two hundred and fifty thousand years ago and they determined that every Ice Age in the last quarter million years every single Ice Age began in less than 20 years and by beginning in life less than twenty years it went from temperatures and climate as warmest a day into full-fledged glacial severity in less than twenty years so yeah I could happen very and now again though I'm not saying we're going to be covered with ice it's not like it's not like these giant ice sheets come grinding out of the north it's it's it's called a snow blitz and we just get heavier and heavier snows I think we're we're do you know when I when I look at the various various cycles and of course when I look at the the sunspot cycle the Little Ice Age like it right now sunspots we're now in something like a Dalton minimum of a hundred and eighty years ago where sunspots are the lowest they have been in more than a hundred years and and that in the past has correlated with these these little ice ages if that keeps going then we're on our way right now you know I just looked today on the on the website for where they keep track of the Greenland ice sheet and the Greenland ice sheet as of today it is it has a greater mass balance then is the median so so you know because I hear all this stuff about gee the melting ice in the Arctic is what's happened is have all these big snowstorms down here but that's not true because the green light as of today Greenland's ice sheet is the mass balance is bigger than normal as of today the Antarctic ice sheet is still growing I I mean we do read articles in the paper and on the internet about glaciers on the West Antarctic Peninsula that are melting and yes that Peninsula sticks out into the warmer ocean so the glaciers there have been melting a lot of that is also coming from from volcanoes beneath the ice but the primary part the huge part of the Antarctica the ice is still growing thicker so and then the Himalayas that's a big one you know is that a few years ago we were told that all the ice was going to be gone in the Himalaya by 2035 well it turns out that that is not true the glaciers in the Himalayas are actually growing k2 is growing Namba barback just Mount Everest the glaciers are growing in a big part of the Emily s glaciers are growing right here in the United States and that's when I'll bet that a lot of your listeners aren't even aware of but Mount st. Helens you know that erupted when in 1980 1981 I forget which but before Mount Saint Helens erupted it was covered with it with a lot of glacial areas and during that eruption all of that that ice melted almost instantaneously and it rushed down the Toutle River along with with bulldozers and rocks and whatever else so the the glacier was gone well a new glacier has reformed inside of the crater and the glacier on Mount st. Helens is now bigger than it was before the eruptions that you know you don't hear about that but that is a that is a fact glaciers are other great glaciers are growing in the in Washington State glaciers on Mount Baker according to geologists on Easter Easterbrook has been has been he's been measuring them and they're growing so there's there's glaciers are quite a few glaciers that are growing but just looking at the Antarctic glacier and in the glacier in Greenland those the Antarctic ice sheet and the Greenland ice sheet those two ice sheets alone are like 90% of the world's glaciers so when you look at it that way 90 at least 90% of the world's glaciers are growing but we're being told that they're melting so I you know we're not just here E we're not hearing the full truth some people say a pole shift is a magnetic reversal but other people say a pole shift is where the earth actually takes it tips upside down so in that respect very different because during a magnetic reversal the earth does not tip upside down all that happens is that the magnetic north pole moves to the South Pole now because you know where our magnetic field is pointed toward the Arctic for so long way we like to think that's that's normal but actually the Earth's magnetic field has been reversed for about half of history and that's another thing of course that I go back to with the ice ages is that is that I see that ice ages have begun or ended in conjunction with magnetic reversals there was a magnetic reversal almost exactly 11,500 years ago it depends on the measurements about anywhere from eleven thousand five hundred years ago to twelve thousand three hundred years ago there was a magnetic reversal called the Gothenburg magnetic reversal now if you look up magnetic reversals they're going to tell you that the last magnetic reversal was 780 thousand years ago but that is because in many cases they don't include what are called magnetic excursions and a magnetic excursion is a time when our magnetic field lose sometimes moves all the way south and then moves back sometimes it moves partway south and fluctuates and then moves back so these magnetic excursions which which often may last as little as five hundred years they often don't show up in the record but we do know that there was the gothenburg magna excursion about 11,500 years ago which correlated with the mammoth extinction we know there was a lake mungo magnetic reversal about 23,000 died correlates there was another one thirty three thousand years ago so a lot of these magnetic reversals absolutely correlate we like sages and when you say we're we're going through one right now what has happened in the past is as our magnetic field strength goes down and goes down and goes down and when it reaches a certain point about fifteen percent of normal then it can reverse very quickly well when I when the book first came out when not by fire but by ice first came out our magnetic field strength was declining at the rate of five percent four hundred years well now there was a new study that that came out just a couple of years ago now they say that our magnetic field strength is declining at five percent per decade not for four hundred years so it has it has speeded up by ten times I nobody knows what that means I don't either but but I'm thinking it could mean that we're closer to our reversal than we realize what I tie it into is precession of the equinoxes and without getting too esoteric let me see if I can explain it is that if you could put a stick you know the earth rotates and if you could put a stick through our axis of rotation it right now would point toward the star Polaris the North the North the door star but that axis of rotation slowly turns slowly turns so that 11,500 years ago years from now that axis of rotation is going to be pointing toward a different star toward the star Vega and then 11,500 years from then it's going to be back tweeting toward the star Polaris again I think somehow and I do not know the mechanism but I think somehow that this the magnetic reversal is related to that precession of the equinoxes to that turning of our axis of rotation it goes so slowly that we don't see it we don't feel it but it's happening you live in Canada you better worry about it I would say because during the last ice age Canada most of Canada was covered by one to two miles of ie one to two miles straight up Seattle was covered by about three-quarters of a mile of ice straight up now this at the same time now amazingly most of Alaska was not covered with ice during the last ice age that is an amazing thing but apparently the Pacific Ocean moderated it enough that that most of Alaska was okay they'll be safe during an ice age I think but at the same time all of this ice that's accumulating in the north and in far south the water to create that ice had to come from somewhere so what happened during the last ice age is that sea levels were 400 feet lower than they are today now the the Bering Strait is only about 270 feet deep so that means that the Bering Strait was actually above water and it actually created a land bridge a huge huge land bridge almost as wide as Alaska is itself but it created this huge land bridge and our ancestors could have walked here they didn't have to come with a boat they could have walked across that land ridge so you know one of the things I just discovered Indonesia Sumatra in that area of Indonesia during the last ice age was actually connected to the mainland and there was a huge amount of land that was above water those probably the size of the continent and some people think that's probably where Atlantis would have been located because it was above water and as the ice sheets melted way then it slowly started up again you know they're talking you know I see all this talk about rising sea levels well shoot sea levels have been rising for 11,500 years there's nothing new going on about that science tells you if you look far enough but but it's there part of it is you know I think part of it is is the person strings if somebody starts going against the politically correct idea of global warming they're gonna they're gonna lose their job you know the state climatologist of Oregon lost his job because he he did it disagreed with the global warming scenario the state climatologist of Virginia lost his job because he disagreed with a global warming scenario state climatologist a Delaware lost his job for the same reason now if you're a young scientist just starting out and you've got a wife and kids and you're you're paying or if you're a woman scientist whichever but you're paying rent and you're paying for your household and you're paying your car payments you know if you see your boss get fired you're gonna say maybe I better just hold the line a little bit here I think that's part of it I don't think it's I don't think it's a conspiracy I think they just learn not they better not say I do write about it in not by fire but by ice but but I have one chapter called I think it's crazy snakes and twirling cockroaches or something like that I or never not necessarily during a reversal but just during an earthquake when the when the magnetic field changes because the magnetic field does often change during the earthquake but catfish will start jumping out of the water and and snakes I told about this one in this one earthquake in China where it was like February it was below zero and and yet snakes started crawling out of the ground and then they froze to death rather than being caught in being ground into snake burger by the by the land so but yeah birds during a during a race of homing pigeons you know when the magnetic field changes a little bit way homing pigeons get lost and of course the you know at the airport my understanding is that they have signs along the runways that tell tell pilots where to go where Bank netic north is and and many airports have had to start changing their signs because magnetic north is moving now that's something that happens all the time it's it but it sure is moving when lava comes out of the of the earth it's so hot that it does not have a magnetic inclination but when it to what's called the Curie temperature then it takes on the magnet magnetic field of the day so scientists can go to the I think this is fascinating I haven't done it but I'd love to but scientists can go to a lava field and they can drill hole into the lava and then put their compass down inside that hole and they can tell which way was north at the time that that volcano erupted it's really fascinating sea levels declined in 2011 2000 in 2012 and sea levels declined last year sea levels have been grow have been rising for you know for 11,500 years and they've been rising about the thickness of a dime and a nickel put together not not the diameter just the thickness that's how much they've been rising and that's how much I guess that we're supposed to be petrified about but that's been going on as I said for thousands of years but actually in 2012 they went down in 2011 they went down and last year sea levels went down not much but they and of course I think that's because of the huge snowstorms you know last year California had their huge snowstorms there
