The last mini Ice Age struck the northern hemisphere about A.D. 1450 and lasted 400 years. It was dubbed the “Little Ice Age.” In Canada, it had a huge impact on everything from crop yields to changing ecosystems.
“The Little Ice Age decreased the number of frost-free days and altered the composition of forests,” report York University geographers Celina and Ian Campbell.
It was brought on by a seemingly minuscule average cooling of one to two degrees Celsius, climatologists report. But its impact was huge. Historians called it the “General Crisis” owing to its enormous impact: Crop harvests declined “disastrously.”
Recent meteorological and other developments have prompted some researchers to predict another mini Ice Age is likely starting to take shape.
According to Habibulla Abdusamatov, an astrophysicist with the Russian Academy of Science, the northern…
