There’ll be 200 to 250 years of global cooling just ahead

In light of our prolonged winter, there seems to be a shift in the climate change theories that have been passed around by global scientists.

Russian scientist Yuri Nagovitsyn of the Pulkovo Observatory has gone on record stating: “We could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years.”

The observatory was opened in 1839. Originally, it was a brainchild of the German/Russian astronomer Friedrich Georg Wilhelm von Struve, who would become its first director — in 1861, his son Otto Wilhelm von Struve succeeded him.

After one of the snowiest winters in recent memory, I am inclined to agree with Mr. Nagovitsyn.

It certainly was not the cold, miserable winter/spring phenomenon that we experienced in the Brainerd lakes area that caused the Russian scientist to conclude that we’re heading into a cooling period.

Solar activity follows different cycles, including an 11-year cycle, a 90-year cycle and a 200-year cycle, Nagovitsyn stated.
