Climate catastrophe and the Berlin warming

Authors


Abstract

Global climatic catastrophes, such as ice ages, beset the earth at quasi-periodic intervals. Nothing can be done to prevent them, but, with the recent verification of the Milankovitch [1930] theory, we may be able to predict when the next one might occur. Drastic shifts in climate sometimes occur in restricted regions of the world with devastating effects on the inhabitants. That a climate catastrophe may be building in the Soviet Union is indicated by the recent results of Orlof [1978] and by the ongoing work of Ginzburg and Scharansky [1978].
