Russian Academy of Sciences: Global warming over in Central Asia

Global warming is over in Central Asia, and a new cooler period is ahead, according to Russian Academy of Sciences scientist Andrei Daryin:

Studies of the bottom sediments in lakes in Siberia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia testify to the forthcoming cooler period in Central Asia, senior researcher of the Russian Academy of Sciences Siberian branch's V.S. Sobolev Institute of Geology and Mineralogy Andrei Daryin said.
"We think temperatures in South Siberia stopped climbing in 2010-2011 and a decline is about to start," Daryin told reporters on Monday.

In his opinion, regional temperature measurements supported the prognosis.--

Daryin said the research showed whether the latest rise in temperatures was something unique or not.
"Whenever we look a thousand years back, it appears that the situation is not that unique. A temperature rise comparable with today's parameters already happened 1,000 years ago," he said.
In fact, climate change cycles correlate with solar activity, the expert continued.
