Actually no. Ultimately when the polar ices melt enough the fresh water will desalinate the Atlantic conveyor causing the conveyor to slow. The first indication is stronger storms on the coasts (which we've begun to have). Granted this only affects the US Eastern seaboard and Europe. But the problem is if it slows down enough then the "great ocean conveyor" slows. Affecting the rest of the world. Then, as the currents continue to slow it theoretically triggers an ice age.

Here's a better explanation:

I would love to hear more about this phenomena. From this brief comment, I imagine a scenario where you might get a very late frost, which kills your plants. For example, if by some occurrence a frost were to happen now in late June, all of my garden plants would be toast. I can see how that would be devastating to people more tied to a subsistence lifestyle.

I was quoting local talk from farming friends but went looking for links and WOW!

Did a search on "growing season UK" and find the UK growing seasons are a MONTH LONGER !!!! (UK guv report of course)

Not what my farming friends think. This will need a few beers to sort out.

Yes, maybe ...

But imagine that the conveyor belt stops because of the huge amount desalinated water (like half of the Arctic and Greenland melts) and we start having severe winters in Northern Atlantic ... As soon as snow and ice accumulates and there is no more melting the conveyor belt starts working ... It can't be an ice age, more like an Ice-Break

Actually Oric, Scientists figured out the reasons why the Sun gets hot and cold. There are two dynamic rotations going on within the Sun. This was figured out 1-2 years ago. The math fits perfectly with the recorded history of temperatures. in 2035, we will enter a mini ice age. This is a virtual certainty. Buy blankets!

Hopefully, I will be alive to witness it.

Well you're right, in a way. The above scenario, coupled with the Maunder Minimum is what is believed to drive the "Little Ice Age" which lasted from 1415 to 1715. It should be noted that the Maunder Minimum coincided with the coldest period of the Little Ice Age. So although it was a contributing factor, it is believed that the Atlantic Conveyor was the culprit.

Scientists warn of a mini-ice age due to reduced solar activity .

Quote:
The daily Berliner Kurier here writes today that solar physicists at the
ultra-warmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) are warning
that Europe may be facing “a mini ice age” due to a possible protracted solar
minimum.
The PotsDam institute no less . I am impressed but also sure
the global warming alarmists will find a way to disown this research
, not to mention demonizing and probably firing the research team .


Full article here .

New research suggests Global cooling will be like Maunder Minimum .
(Northumbria University)

Quote:
If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the
Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately.

The research suggests that the next three solar cycles will see solar activity reduce
significantly into the middle of the century, producing conditions similar to those last seen in the 1600s – during the Maunder Minimum.
