Earth heading for 'mini ice age' in just 15 years, scientists warns

European scientists warn that by 2030, a decade of winters with deep freezing temperatures could bring about a “mini ice age” the likes of which hasn’t been seen in 370 years. 
Researchers at Northumbria University, led by Professor Valentina Zharkova, used mathematical models to predict solar activity will drop by 60% and trigger plunging temps around the world. The last time this happened was between 1645 and 1715, the Independent reported.
More testing will be needed, but Zharkova is confident about her outlook.
“Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%,” she said.
Sound familiar? Former NASA consultant and space shuttle engineer John Casey has been known to voice similar concerns. In fact, he wrote a book called “Dark Winter” in which he warns of crop failures and food riots.
“We don’t have 10 years,” Casey once told Newsmax. “We’ve squandered during President Obama’s administration eight years ... and we didn’t have eight years to squander.”
