Re: The Solar Grand Minimum - Heating fuel shortages
« Reply #46 on: December 26, 2018, 12:30:16 PM »
While we've been discussing higher home heating prices on this thread, it never occurred to me that an entire state might declare an emergency because of no more propane.

Evolutionary Energy Arts reports that Colorado declared a state of emergency on Christmas Eve because of just that: suppliers are on the verge of running out of propane, leaving 33,000 customers who depend upon it in a lurch. 

Officials are providing only vague explanations, saying that suppliers are having "production issues."  Rationing of propane has begun.  Suppliers are seeking the fuel from other states, but customers have been warned that it will not arrive any time soon. 

Moral: Preppers may want to consider adding a woodstove to their home heating plan if they don't already have one.

And since our region of PA ran short on firewood for delivery recently, it's important to over-stock cord wood, if not cutting and seasoning your own. 

Meanwhile, a major winter storm is on the way to Colorado, and temperatures fell into the single digits last night...

It should also be noted that Colorado has a history of frowning upon fireplaces and woodstoves, per family members who once lived there.  Home builders and owners must apply for a special permit before adding one, if I understand correctly, and then there are rigorous regulations as to which model / type of woodstove may be used.

One wonders at the irony of such regulations coinciding with a sudden mass unavailability of propane - seems like another Agenda 21 fiat.

I hope that Colorado readers will update my information if it is outdated.

If anyone uses a Hardy type woodstove, and has neighbors, it could spell problems.  We invested in the Hardy Woodstove and OMG that thing smokes up the area for miles.  It's awful.  It is designed to burn that way, and the smoke is constant, thick, and noxious.  Finally after about a year or so, we relegated it as a very expensive trash burner.  An efficient indoor wood burner that doesn't leak, and has a high fuel efficiency rating is a good way to stay warm.

But, yes, there may be much more at play than just unavailability of propane.  After all, isn't fracking another source of propane?  It seems there should be more propane, not less.

I'm so sorry about your unpleasant woodstove experience Ilinda - if you decide to give it a try again, you might want to look into purchasing a stove with "secondary burn" which turns smoke into fuel (provided the stove is not leaky).

My husband and I were just saying the same thing, that there should be more propane due to sizeable domestic resources. 

Maybe it's being sold off to power overseas industry, in the same way that fuel oil is being sent abroad?

Interesting that the shortage involves propane rather than natural gas, as propane is used in bulk for home heating by independent rural folks, while natural gas must be piped to homes that depend upon it.  It's difficult to say that any other demographic was affected by this than preppers.

One suggestion to propane users:
Buy propane under an annual contract with a well-established provider, rather than on a "will-call" basis.  The contract not only provides customers with a lock on prices (except when they drop), but also causes the provider to give them priority over other buyers.  Most rural folks probably already know this though.

Ice Age Farmer is reporting multiple instances this winter of northern power companies unable to keep up with the demand from their customers for electricity with colder than expected temps, or longer-lasting deep freezes. 

He documents that a Quebec electric co actually warned customers in writing either to cut back on their usage, or to expect blackouts.  And indeed the predicted blackouts occurred.

In the dead of winter...

Do you have a non-electric heat source?

Do you have a back-up for your back-up heat?

Not only do we need to have a back-up heat source, but think about cooking as well.  That stove shown in the picture appears to be kerosene, and the flat top would work as a makeshift cooktop.

Absolutely.  I have a similar one in black, but haven't tried cooking on it yet.  Will have to try it soon and report back!  :)

David Dubyne details several scientific methods for verifying that global cooling is taking place, and then discusses how MSM can cooperate in getting people prepared ahead of time for the situation that will soon be upon us, he feels.

He advocates that PTB be calm but forthright with the public, and that they should break the news in this sequence in anticipation of orderly mass famine planning that might take a year or 18 months before the worst of the event arrives:

Before any discussion takes place about crop and food losses or population reduction, officials need to address the basics about changes to the weather and let that sink in:

1. Explain to the public why the jet streams are altered, and that they may be expected to dip down as far as South America

2. Explain the connection between the sun and earth's weakened magnetosphere

3. Explain that the public needs to expect and prepare for extreme storms and floods

After those facts have sunk into the public psyche, then the discussion can be quickly enlarged to include real-life consequences of those changes:

1. The public needs to expect that insurance companies will stop insuring, especially those offering agricultural coverage.  In North America, this has already happened in Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska.  It's beginning to happen in Texas, Alabama and Georgia.  Federal crop insurance may be able to fill in the gaps for a while.

2.  By the end of 2019, the phrase "Global Warming" should completely fall out of use in official discussions of what to expect.

3. By 2020, a global agricultural crisis will become evident through food prices, which will enter the mainstream discussion. 

4. In 2020, when leaders and the press can no longer avoid focusing upon food shortages and costs, banks will become destabilized as funds are withdrawn to help people afford basic supplies, while those who own stocks will in many cases need to cash them in to secure survival items.

5.  Another topic that will come to the forefront of the discussion is a mass migration to the south which will force northern real estate values sharply downward.

6. Power grid failures will become a mainstream topic.

7. Agricultural innovation will become a key topic.

8. Agricultural delivery systems will also become a pressing issue.

I also follow David Dubyne/Adapt 2030 and have found is videos to be very accurate and reliable.

This past weekend's edition of Marfoogle News featured an ex-military caller who served as a meteorologist for the U.S. Navy, who says that the government has been aware of the oncoming mini-ice-age since at least the 1990's.

She further explained that the reason the Farmers' Almanac has been so accurate over the years is because it has always been based upon sunspot cycles, which is a restricted science in the military, meaning that only superiors are permitted to study them.

A separate clip of that segment of the telecast was made and posted here:

David DuByne of Adapt 2030 has put together a 4-part discussion with Craig
Simpson ( http://radiantcreators.com/ ) on vibrational changes to be expected during the Grand Solar Minimum (which may also imply during the Px arrival and exit, sun micronova, etc.). 

Part I is an overview:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQo5qjjgV-c

Quote
...getting your mind, body and spirit ready for the changes in the Grand Solar Minimum...



Predictions:

2023: Food riots in cities globally

2028: Reduction in agricultural output to only 20% of the present level

2028-2032: Continuation of drastically reduced solar output and food supply level @ 20% of current production

Order of priority:

1. Mental and spiritual preparation

2. Physical prepping

Most intense climate-change period:

The next 3 years, and then it levels off

Economic effects to expect:

1. Discretionary income will be diverted to cover the ever-rising cost of food

2. Businesses which depend upon people's discretionary income will fold.

3. Shipping under the old letter of credit system will grind to a halt

Possible examples (not specifically mentioned) of discretionary budget line-items that people may axe:
movie theatres
music concerts
sporting events
casinos
tourism
magazine subscriptions
retail clothing
pet care
spas and gym memberships
nutritional supplements and alternative medicine
home renovation projects and even basic maintenance
restaurant dining
beauty salon and barber shops
summer air conditioning
luxury automobiles and boats
dry cleaning
tax preparation services
investment brokers
savings accounts
charitable contributions
trade-up home market
fine arts
expensive auto repairs
child daycare
nursing homes that won't accept Medicare until exhausting other resources
elective surgeries
starting a family

Other ideas?

Part II:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNH8aM8MF2A

Special challenges:

*Deserts that are greening are now dealing with mass influx of new pests

*Preserving a harvest requires some access to energy, which will be in short supply and will need to be decentralized

*Solar panels providing less output

Quote
If you hear on the radio one day that there's been a VEI7 volcanic eruption, you should take the rest of the day off from work to withdraw some money out of the bank and go buy food...at that point, it'll take just mere days before we understand the ramifications of how much ash is coming down.

Quote
There's going to be a discernible difference in the amount of food available from that point going forward.

Quote
If you see a huge volcanic eruption, you need to take action right then.  There's no waiting at that point - it's over.

Quote
We would lose all agriculture on the planet that very year.  It would start snowing in August.

Quote
The easiest thing to start with indoors is sprouts.  Start small.  Learn what too much water can do.

Quote
Growing is only about 20% of the work involved in actually having food...We need to start to think about storing it.

Quote
Small vacuum-sealed packs of food are easily carried and can be trade-able.

Quote
Download how-to guides right now while you still can, and either print them out or load them onto a memory stick to look at later.

Quote
We need to be giving thanks right now for every little thing we have to eat.

Quote
During the Bosnian war, the people who were even slightly prepared seemed to be the ones that everyone came to, to trade with, for information...those families seemed to be a focal point...

Quote
It's all about preparedness: just a little bit of preparedness, adjusting the mind to understand what's going on and being thankful.

Quote
The simplest of pleasures are going to bring you the greatest amount of happiness moving forward.

Quote
The Grand Solar Minimums create certain leaps in evolution.

Quote
...People are feeling something is not right, but they can't quite put their finger on what it is.

Quote
It's natural.  It's just a larger cycle...There are seasons that we're just not aware of because we're not told about them...

Quote
The governments are trying not to mass-panic everyone by creating a situation years before the real difficulties come, when they're going to need the police state in place.
