Physicist who foresees global cooling says other scientists tried to ‘silence’ her

frozenA physicist who foresees a 30-year period of global cooling says other climatologists have tried to “silence” her latest research on solar cycles.

Valentina Zharkova, a professor at Northumbria University at Newcastle in the United Kingdom, said the Royal Astronomical Society received requests to withdraw a press release on her team’s latest research pointing to a significant drop in solar activity by mid-century.

She presented her results July 9 at the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, Wales.

“Some of them [scientists] were welcoming and discussing. But some of them were quite, I would say, pushy,” saidMs. Zharkova in a video interview posted Tuesday by the Global Warming Policy Forum. “They were trying to actually silence us. Some of them contacted the Royal Astronomical Society demanding behind our back that they withdraw our press release.”

She said the society refused. “The Royal Astronomical Society replied to them and cc’d to us, and said, ‘Look, this is the work by scientists who we support, please discuss this with them,’ ” she said.

“We had about eight or 10 exchanges by email when I tried to prove my point, and I’m saying, ‘I’m willing to look at what you do,’ ” Ms. Zharkova said.

She offered to work with the scientists by adding their data to her results, but she said that “they didn’t want to.”

The press release on her research, “Irregular heartbeat of the Sun driven by double dynamo,” was posted July 9 on the society’s website.

Her sunspot modeling indicates a reduced solar magnetic field from 2020 to 2053, producing conditions similar to those during the Maunder Minimum, or “Little Ice Age,” a 65-year period of reduced solar activity and low global temperatures during the 17th century.

“We didn’t have many measurements in the Southern hemisphere, we don’t know what will happen with that, but in the Northern hemisphere, we know it’s very well protocoled,” Ms. Zharkova said. “The rivers are frozen. There are no winters and no summers, and so on.”

    The science silencers hunt in packs and are cowards . Everyone knows climate changes
    and at some point it is going to cool . Makes sense the big ball of fire might possibly have something to do with it yet the science silencers are not even curious enough to
    dispute the research of Prof Zharkova . . Why is that ? Are the the real DENIERS starting to come out of the wood work as the pump and dump scary global warming scam unravels .
    Makes one wonder what assumptions climate programmer’s put in their
    climate fudged data . If it’s going to cool and freeze half the world I guess the greenies will be hoping for mass starvation to solve their population pruning objectives . At least it will confirm what a complete joke all the hyperventilating about CO2 was .
    Keep talking Prof Zharkova . It is always nice to see real scientists are not cowered
    by bullies . The Royal Astronomical Society deserves a tip of the hat for
    not turning into a quivering bowl of jello and actually standing up for scientific work . If the science silencers had anything to say they had a chance to put forward their research and elected not to . That says it all .

    and that is what real scientists do .
