  2. The Antarctic ice should increase even more as the present solar cycle lower its intensity. We have at least more 5-6 years of declining radiations until SC25 begins (assuming SC24 with 12 years duration as SC23, but it could last longer). It’ll be funny to watch the reaction and “explanations” of the AGW alarmists! 🙂

    • Boy, do I agree!! It will be interesting to watch the Arctic add ice year after year.

      Now the bad news: Are we ready for the coming cold???

      • We can be, we have the technology to deal with periods of prolonged cold. The problem is, are we (humans) wise enough to prepare for what is coming?
