Decreased solar activity is going to put the Earth through a mini ice age. European researchers estimated that this is going to happen from 2030 to 2040.
This point of view is opposed to the opinion of environmental campaigners who are convinced that the rise of the sea levels and flooding will happen by 2030.
Northumbria University professor Valentina Zharkova revealed that an 11-year cycle of solar activity leads to a freezing climate.
Similar thing happened in 1600s when low temperature caused a 70-year ice age on the planet. This occurrence is known as the Maunder Minimum.
With the help of a new double dynamo model, researchers can forecast the next freeze.
The upcoming freeze will be caused by two magnetic waves, which will cancel each other out, influencing a reduction in solar activity by 60%.
This new model showed an accuracy of 97 %. This model supports researchers who claim that the Earth will soon be faced with a major drop in global temperature. A reduction in solar activity leads to the freeze on Earth.
On the other hand, environmentalists believe that the temperature will be on the rise due to carbon emissions.
