Hornby Island author at Courtenay library to discuss new book

Lawrence Pierce will be discussing his book 'A New Little Ice Age Has Started' at the Courtenay Library on Sept. 28.

Vancouver and Vancouver Island will soon be among the most densely populated parts of Canada.

A new book – “New Little Ice Age Has Started. How to survive and prosper during the next 50 difficult years”– explains why.

The last two winters were brutal in Central and Eastern Canada, the U.S. and parts of Europe. This summer saw extreme weather: heat waves, drought, hail, floods, summer frost and snow. Crop losses ranged from 12 per cent grain loss in Canada to up to 50 per cent total losses in Poland.  Predictions for the winter 2015-16 are grim: extreme cold and snow in North America.

A regularly occurring 200-year solar cycle, which has been recognized by science for at least 1,000 years, brings cold and snow, but also warm periods to Earth.

A New Little Ice Age Has Started reveals in plain English the scientific basis for the most unusual and unexpected weather changes in modern history, changes that will worsen over coming decades.

The good news is that the cold and snow bypasses the West Coast, and the weather may actually improve here.

The author, Lawrence Pierce, a retired Vancouver litigation lawyer, came to Hornby Island to grow organic grapes and blueberries in 2003 at the end of the 20th century warm period.

He soon realized that the climate was changing, not as promised by Al Gore and the global warming alarmists, but rather in the other direction.

His experience as a trial lawyer gave him the skills to sift the evidence carefully, and present facts and expert opinions that will convince even the most devout believers in global warming.

Pierce will speak about his book and make a presentation Sept. 28 at 6 p.m. at the Courtenay Public Library 300 6th St.
