And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
In the late-1960s, Mikhail Ivanovich Budyko worked with simple two-dimensional energy-balance climate models to investigate the reflectivity of ice. He found that the ice-albedo feedback created a positive feedback loop in the Earth's climate system. The more snow and ice, the more solar radiation is reflected back into space and hence the colder Earth grows and the more it snows. Other studies found that pollution or a volcano eruption could provoke the onset of an ice age.
In the mid-1980s, Atsumu Ohmura, a geography researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, found that solar radiation striking the Earth's surface had declined by more than 10% over the three previous decades. His findings appeared to contradict global warming—the global temperature had been generally rising since the 70s. Less light reaching the earth seemed to mean that it should cool. Ohmura published his findings "Secular variation of global radiation in Europe" in 1989. This was soon followed by others: Viivi Russak in 1990 "Trends of solar radiation, cloudiness and atmospheric transparency during recent decades in Estonia", and Beate Liepert in 1994 "Solar radiation in Germany — Observed trends and an assessment of their causes". Dimming has also been observed in sites all over the former Soviet Union. Gerry Stanhill who studied these declines worldwide in many papers (see references) coined the term "global dimming".

Tsunamis, earthquakes, world wars, nuclear disasters, and upheaval in the Middle East – could it be we are living in the final trumpet days of Revelation?
Whether one is a believer or not, the Bible provides many clues about the future of us all. In Final Warning beloved pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups explores the stunning visions of the Apostle John as found in the seven trumpets of Revelation and overlays them on major events in the 20th and 21st centuries.
How do the two world wars line up with John the Revelator’s visions? Could it really be that the Chernobyl meltdown was foretold in the Bible almost two thousand years before it happened? Does the rebirth of Israel indicate the Last Days are upon us? Was the same Apollyon mentioned in "trumpet five" responsible for the darkening of the sky during the Gulf War? Is the United States mentioned in biblical prophecy?
Gallups has scoured historical, military, and journalistic sources to address these questions and more. An incredible journey of contextual biblical understanding and astounding prophetic possibilities await as you discover why today’s signs could be the final warning.
