Stance on Climate Change
“The models and forecasts of the UN IPCC “are incorrect because they only are based on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for example, solar activity.” 
Herrera has said that the Earth is in a state of transition as solar activity is diminishing. He predicts that in two years or so, the earth will see a small ice age that will last form 60 to 80 years. 
“In this century glaciers are growing.”
