My comment: The best way to kill off a large number of people in a “clean” and inconspicuous way is by famine. Thus, we have a reduction in global temperatures which will decrease the size and productivity of the agricultural belt. The polar regions are being cooled to trap more moisture which is evidenced by the expanding ice caps. This reduces the available moisture through the climate zones which contributes to drought.

“The entire global climate is being altered.” – Deborah Tavares
Since the late 1990s, we’ve seen a rather remarkable absence of warming in the Pacific Ocean and the North Atlantic to depths of 2,000 meters, some 6,800 feet. Only the South Atlantic and the Indian Oceans have continued to show some slow warming to those depths.
If history repeats itself, and there is no reason to believe that it will not, even the South Atlantic and the Indian oceans will soon begin to cool, perhaps for the next several decades or more.
The summer sea icepacks are increasing in size in both the Arctic regions and many areas surrounding the Antarctic continent. Ships have frequently been trapped by extremely thick ice exceeding 10 to 12 feet in places in both polar regions. Ironically, this included a ship filled with global warming scientists and friends earlier in the Antarctic summer.
