Mexico Should Beware the Little-Ice-Age Cycle
According to research by Dr. Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera of the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, falling solar radiation indicates that our planet is now entering a mini ice age, a mini ice age that will last between 60 and 80 years.
Dr. Velasco Herrera bases his observation on the fact that many climatic events are cyclical.
"Over the past 400,000 years, there have been extremely cold periods called ice ages, which last on average 100,000 years, as well as hot or interglacial periods lasting about 12,000 years. On our planet the cold periods are extremely long, while the hot periods are very short, "says Dr. Velasco Herrera.
Could be the preamble of the next ice age
"Between one ice age and another we have interglacial phases hot like what we are now but that could be coming to an end because the ice age mini could be the preamble of the next ice age that will last 100,000 years."
