Looking at the graph on the right, we are obviously at the high point of the temperature range for the planet, during this current ‘interglacial’ period, and temperatures this warm have always been followed by an ice age. The past twelve-month long drop in world temperatures has wiped out a century of warming.
Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile — the list goes on and on.
