Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 21, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 May come within lifetime of present generations Scientists warn new ice age may grip world LONDON (Reuter) A new ice age might grip the world within the lifetime of present generations, new scientific studies presented on British Television indicated Wednesday. The warning came in a documentary showing that international scientists have changed their minds about the speed with which the world's "weather machine" can change gear. "The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nu- clear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for said science writer Nigel Calder, who com- piled the program for the BBC. Latest studies show that ice ages are much more frequent than scientists once and the next one seems to be overdue. One theory says "Toronto, Leningrad and Glasgow ought by now to have disappeared under thick ice sheets." There also is evidence that its onset might be dramatical- ly sudden, a "snow blitz" rather than the gradual spreading of glaciers, Calder said. The picture was com- plicated by a cycle of mini ice Indian delegation ignored by minister and Grit MPs Lovelorn barber Italian-born Quaglia Luciano, a Vancouver barber, holds some of the letters he has written to immigration officials about delays in permission for his Ecuadorian fiancee, Elsy Romero, to come to Canada for their wedding. The couple met in 1973 while both were vacationing in Los Angeles, Calif. OTTAWA (CP) A delega- tion from the Manitoba Indian Brotherhood complained to- day they have been almost totally ignored by Indian Af- fairs Minister Judd Buchanan and Liberal MPs. Brotherhood president Dr. Ahab Spence told a press con- ference that attempts to see Mr. Buchanan and to appear before the Commons Indian affairs committee to air grievances have had no success. "The minister has said that he will not negotiate looking down the barrel of a said one of the Manitoba chiefs. "Well, we are here on a peaceful mission and cannot be heard." Dr. Spence said a main rea- son for the delegation coming to Ottawa is to establish local government on Manitoba reserves. He said the government had accepted a brotherhood posi- tion paper asking for local government in 1971. Dr. Spence said the public service has put up roadblocks against implementation of such a program. In fact, none of the brotherhood proposals had been acted upon. Because they couldn't break through the red tape, the Manitoba chiefs decided to come to Ottawa at their own expense to see elected MPs. "We have been well receiv- ed by members of the opposi- tion said Dr. Spence. "But we have been ignored by members of the govern- ment and unable to see the Commons standing com- mittee on Indian affairs on these issues." ages Scientist George Denton, of the University of Maine, pro- duced evidence indicating that the world is in fact already in the middle of such an age and that the warmer weather of this century was freakish. ''The cooling of the Northern Hemisphere since 1950. and the dreadful droughts in Africa and India in the 1970s, may well be signs that we are feeling the effects of the little ice age again." Calder said. This heightened the risk of a big ice age. "The next ice age is due soon and it can begin to bite suddenly. The new knowledge is so recent and ill-digested that the precise meanings of soon and suddenly are still rather vague. But the sense of Crop lower REGINA (CP) Saskatchewan Wheat Pool to- day estimated the province's 1974 wheat crop, at 315.5 million bushels, down sharply from the 395 million bushels produced last year. In its final crop report for the year, the pool said that the crop's quality is generally low. with only one quarter of the red spring wheat grading No. 1 or No. 2. the discoveries is that there is no reason why the ice age should not start in earnest in 3ur lifetimes." Scientists were tending to the theory that ice which the world is now thought to have seen about caused by small changes in the earth's attitude in orbit around the sun and in the orbit itself. These altered the ability of summer sunshine to melt the winter snows. Possible trigger factors for a new ice age might be a series of big volcanic erup- tions flinging dust into the at- mosphere, or an accumulation of man-made pollution. If it came within the next few years, there is probably little that man could do about it. Calder said. But given present inter- national co-operation in meteorology is a hopeful might be able to alter the weather pattern in some way and meet the chal- lenge of the ice. Calder stressed that his message is that man must take seriously the possibility of an imminent ice age. even though it is not certain that it will happen.
