The Solar Grand Minimum


Record breaking blizzard - Grand Solar Minimum update - 8 foot snow drifts of "global warming" reported.

https://www.sott.net/article/363919-Record-breaking-blizzard-Grand-Solar-Minimum-update-8-foot-snow-drifts-of-global-warming-reported

According to the National Weather Service in Great Falls, Montana, this storm was effectively a blizzard in the Havre area, especially considering the severe impacts. A blizzard occurs when the following conditions are met for at least three consecutive hours: sustained winds or frequent gusts to at least 35 mph and considerable falling and/or blowing snow that frequently reduces visibility to less than a quarter mile.

Elsewhere, Zortman, Montana set a new one day record for October with 14 inches of snow reported Tuesday morning.

While not a record, Missoula, Montana recorded 10 inches of snow Monday night, which is the earliest recorded measurable snow there in 34 yrs.

The heaviest estimated snow amount from this storm is 30 inches in Rocky Boy, Montana. Drifts in at least one location were estimated to be eight feet high.

Top snowfall totals as of Tuesday evening include:

30 inches in Rocky Boy, Montana
20.4 inches near Encampment, Wyoming
18 inches near Steamboat Springs, Colorado
16 inches near Cameron Pass, Colorado
15.8 inches near Havre, Montana
Up to 15 inches near Breckenridge, Colorado
14 inches at the Vail Pass rest area on Interstate 70 in Colorado
14 inches near Redcliff, Colorado
14 inches in Zortman, Montana
14 inches in Cut Bank, Montana
13 inches in Havre, Montana (Havre City-County Airport)
13 inches near Rand, Colorado
12 inches near Laramie, Wyoming
10 inches near Avon, Colorado

The snow first affected the Colorado Rockies Sunday night into Monday.

Interstate 70 was closed in Colorado between Vail and Copper Mountain for a time Monday morning due to accidents and vehicles sliding off the icy road. Shelters were opened to take in stranded travelers in the area.

More than a foot of snow accumulated in many locations, including an estimated 14 inches of snow that was measured at the Vail Pass rest area on Interstate 70 as of Monday morning.

Seems as if all the snow would help to cleanse the air of smoke from the wildfires over there.  I have an elderly friend in Missoula who has complained of needing to wear a mask to leave the house, and hope the snow brings some relief. :)

Grand Solar Minimums Not Only Bring Cold, Wet And Windy Weather On A Worldwide Basis—They Bring The Collapse Of Civilizations

http://www.survivaldan101.com/solar-minimums-collapse-civilizations/

Democrats and liberals are going to be crushed by cold climate change. They are doomed because Nature is against them. They should have known better than play around with Mother Nature. The fact that it was snowing the middle of this summer in France and in Russia is just one indication that we are suffering from a cooling trend, not a warming one. Such indications have been evident in the global climate news for years.

“The Greenland Ice Sheet is gaining near-record amounts of ice this year,” says Tony Heller. Temperatures on the Greenland Ice Sheet have been extremely cold, and broke the all-time record for Northern Hemisphere July cold on July 4, at -33C. (-27.4F) Despite all evidence to the contrary, government scientists insist on believing fake GRACE data which shows almost all of Greenland losing ice,” says Heller. “These are criminals, not scientists. How much ice will melt, I wonder, at minus 33 degrees?

Conclusion

Grand Solar Minimums not only bring cold, wet and windy weather on a worldwide basis; they bring the collapse of civilizations and the birth of new ones. When the cold sets in and destroys crops, causing food riots and starvation it will be too late to do anything about it. For many reasons human civilization is set up for a crisis and collapse that will devastate billions and for sure, there are many people who are well aware of where present trends are taking us. Some people do prepare but most, for psychological reasons prefer to believe everything is just fine.

Massive areas of land will become too cold for agriculture – like Russia, Ukraine, Canada – we can expect social, political, demographic disruptions like nothing experienced in all of human history. That along with a massive financial collapse and economic depression will devastate much of modern civilization. These are two irresistible forces headed down humanities throat. Perhaps the only thing we as a race have control over at this point is avoiding a nuclear war, which is the last thing the human race needs at this critical juncture.

Interesting film which says that our solar system, which is moving through the Milky Way Galaxy, is beginning to exit a protective envelope called the Local Cloud, shedding the insulation that it gave us from galactic radiation (a.k.a. LaViolette's superwave?).  The combination of this phenomenon with our own sun's decreasing strength and earth's weakening electromagnetic field mean, according to narrator, that it will be thousands of years before earth ever approaches temperatures and conditions of the Grand Solar Maximum that we recently exited. 

With all three of our shields down, we can expect Galactic energy to begin pouring into our atmosphere in magnitudes exponentially larger than what we have ever experienced.  Along with this comes greater static electricity, which is expected to be stronger in cold, dry air than in warm and humid conditions.  Besides static electricity, we can expect more cloud cover, lightning, hail, flooding and higher winds (maybe great for wind power and not as good for solar?).

Narrator comments that when the pole shift takes place, we can expect that the earth will retain 5 to 10% of its magnetic field, rather than dwindling down to zero. 

Broad effects upon human (and animal?) health:

Overall systems affected:
Cardiac
Psychological
Cognitive
Motor
Autonomous (the portion of the CNS that functions without conscious thought)
Neurological
Autoimmune

Note that 5 of the 7 broad areas affected are related to the nervous system, and most are also electrical systems, suggesting the need for support from the B-complex, essential fatty acids, and electrolytes at a minimum, in addition to relying more upon oral intake of vitamin D than upon sunning out.

Specific health effects to expect:

More cardiovascular events of all kinds, including strokes.  People at risk for left ventricular dysfunction are in the greatest danger during "space weather" due to a theoretical switch from smooth electrical cardiac energy to a vortex of energy

Daily genetic mutations, not just occasionally

Cataract formation

Heightened risk of geriatric cancer

Possible radiation sickness

Build-up of radioactive iodine in the thyroid, blocking thyroid hormone production (even from space radiation?)

Sterility

Skin irritation

Inhibition of the immune system

Anxiety

Fatigue

Changes to bone, muscle and cartilage tissue

Other effects besides health
Power grid instability leading to:

Impeded cash flow

Heat scarcity

Food scarcity

Communications outage

Water shortages

Loss of Internet

Loss of cooling systems

Loss of transportation

Damage to aviation equipment

Damage to radar systems, affecting both weather forecasting and aviation

Electrical fires at power plants if not deliberately shut down ahead of time

Melted power lines if the system is not shut down deliberately

Electrical explosions

Entire countries losing power, such as occurred in Belize


Specific effects of the September, 2017 CME which mostly missed the earth:

Google Drive went down affecting corporations globally

Electrical explosions affecting pedestrians

Transformer fires halting traffic flow

Blackouts to large geographical areas

Shutdown of commerce

Shutdown of mass transportation

Shutdown of government offices

Prepping advice @ 59:00.

Safest and more dangerous areas of the U.S. to avoid @ 1:01:19.


Note: One graph in this film does not take into account the possibility of imminent occurrence of the pole shift caused by Px, but rather states that it will happen in our lifetime based upon all other evidence alone.

My take on it: Ascension may also be a physical phenomenon accompanying the spiritual aspects, acclimating or inuring us to increased space radiation, or there would be no life left on earth unless people lived underground (exposing themselves to radon as the alternative).  Hence the coming genetic upgrade for those spiritually prepared to receive it?

Screenshot #1: Lateral view of our Milky Way Galaxy, from which LaViolette's superwave is predicted to emerge and change all life on earth not overcome by it, as it spreads outward from Galactic Center.

Screenshot #2: Our current position in the Local Cloud, from which we are emerging.  Does it resemble a womb giving birth?

Screenshot #3: A SOHO Lasco C2 view of what a CME looks like if it's directed straight toward the earth: there is a total halo effect, rather than a lateral bubble.

Alberta breaks 80 year records as temperatures drop 15 degrees in minutes!

https://www.sott.net/article/381664-Alberta-breaks-80-year-records-as-temperatures-drop-15-degrees-in-minutes

Albertans have been dealing with winter-like conditions this Easter long weekend, but some locations have had it worse than others.

According to Environment Canada, three locations - Red Deer, Grande Prairie and Pincher Creek will remember Saturday as the coldest March 31 on record.

A cold front passed through the southwest corner of the province Saturday morning dropping temperatures in places like Cardston by 15 degrees within an hour.

Grande Prairie dropped to -30 C overnight breaking an 83-year-old record. Pincher Creek hit -21 C, edging an 82-year record, and Red Deer hit -22 C, breaking a record low of -19.4 C that was set in 1975.

Fort McMurray and Cold Lake set new low temperature records on Friday with lows of -31.7 C and -21.7 C respectively.

A number of weather warnings, and special weather statements have been issued across the province this weekend, including snowfall warnings.

Places like Jasper National Park saw between 15 to 20 centimetres of snow fall from Thursday night to Saturday morning, while some local ski hills saw even more.

Areas west of Calgary like Kananaskis recorded 15 centimetres with this system, while Calgary officially had close to 3 centimetres.

More cold weather is expected in Alberta for the weekend, with temperatures expected to remain below freezing for days in many locations.

The average daytime high in Calgary this time of year is 7 C. On March 31, 2017 it was 15 C in Calgary, 25 degrees warmer than this year.

Quote
The Grand Solar Minimum has already arrived.

Quote
Weather extremes will occur in the same locations where they always did in the past, only worse now.

Getting Out of the City:
*Cities, especially high-rise apartment buildings, are not survivable
*Sell or trade an urban property
*Scale down in house size
*If no financial resources, seek employment as caretaker of rural property or farm hand
*Bug-out camping doesn't work well, unless you've practiced it ahead of time

Surviving in the Suburbs:
Make them more survivable by -
     -Meeting neighbors
     -Uniting the community
     -Establishing a neighborhood watch group
     -Assessing skill sets of neighbors
     -Setting up rain barrel catchments
     -The only viable livestock is rabbits and pigeons kept for meat
            A. Breeding pairs produce 8-10 babies per month
            B. Young rabbits are eaten @ 4-5# in weight
            C. They can graze on lawn grass
            D. Humane slaughter: be kind to them in life, then kill them quickly.
            E. Pigeons can be allowed to fly out to forage and then come home
            F.  Their babies as meat are called squab.
     -Locate garden in the back yard to avoid regulations and theft
     -Woodstoves may also be against regulations

Safe Rural Locations:
*Away from river beds
*Sheltered from intense wind and rain
*Not below a dam
*Away from nuclear facilities
*Away from military bases
*Away from volcanoes
*Near a water source
*Away from navigable waterways
*Adequate rainfall location
*Arable land
*Defensible position
*Not visible from road
*Not easily accessible
*Reduce curb appeal
*Reinforced or A-frame roof for snow load
*Without a lot of windows
*With an in-ground storm shelter (not to be used during heavy rain or snow)
*If buried shipping container, tar the roof and reinforce the walls

Preparing the Family for What Lies Ahead:
*Physical fitness, walking instead of driving
*Quizzing children about emergency scenarios
*Practice shutting off the electricity and living without it
*Stockiing non-electronic entertainment, such as books and games

Protecting Your Supply Cache:
*Purchase with untraceable cash instead of credit cards
*Diversify locations for storage
*Sheds may collapse under snow
*Rodent-proof by putting buckets inside of metal cans
*Mousetraps
*You've already paid taxes to gov't and don't owe them your supplies

Part II addresses food and water storage.

This winter weather must be fairly extensive over the northern hemisphere, as winter just keeps hanging on.  Once in a while we get fooled into thinking spring has arrived, and, then, BOOM!, we're back down below freezing.  It's awful....however many have it so much worse, like East Coast of U.S. with 3 or 4 Nor-easters in a row!

And those snow storms everywhere.  I have to wonder, though, if it's a combination of things, because every 11 years we have the cycle, and I cannot ever remember a winter hanging on like this.  Plus we had the coldest winter ever.  Ever.  So who knows how much, if any, the unusually cold weather may be affected by any objects that may have wandered into the Solar System and which may be affectng our sun and its magnetic field, and/or the Earth's magnetic field--not to mention the Solar Minimum

At any rate, probably few in the developed world are well prepared!

@ 9:19

and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nul7oG0auLg  @ 10:45

New climate map of Canada shows that a drastically reduced amount of acreage will now need to support the entire nation, due to mismatch between late freezes and crop planting window.  They may no longer have a surplus for export to other nations.

Up until now, Canada has been ranked as the fifth largest agricultural product exporter in the world: http://cafta.org/agri-food-exports/

Another video on the same subject stated that 80% of this year's winter wheat crop in the U.S. has already been lost, and that we should begin noticing pronounced shortages and inflation by 2019 at the latest.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsycbTURh7o

Around 1:18:30, this discussion between scientists with backgrounds in climatology, geology, physics, biology and chemistry begins to become grim, with a timeline predicted:

*We are now descending from solar sunspot cycle 24, with probably another year of it remaining.  In 6-8 months from now the sun is predicted to cease production of sunspots.  2019 is predicted to be a full year without sunspots, with some sunspot production possibly returning some time between 2020 and 2022.  Once the sunspot magnetic field strength drops below 3,000 gauss, the sun loses its ability to create sunspots entirely.  So the sun potentially becomes trapped in a downward weakening spiral.

*The current rate of solar output decline is steeper than any in recorded history going back thousands of years

*As of two months ago, we exceeded a calendar deadline for pulling out of a Maunder Minimum, signifying that we have not been experiencing one.

*The winter jet stream has dropped 200 miles south in North America

*Instead of an average predicted 8o F drop in winter temps, we are seeing 20o drops

*Influx of cosmic rays is exacerbating the cooling effect

*The situation will be downplayed this summer

*Autumn and winter 2018-2019 will be even worse than 2017-2018, in which most of the winter wheat was ruined in North America (only 13% is Grade A).  More crops will be lost in 2019 than in 2018.

*Expect winter of 2019 to be twice as harsh.  If winter 2018 produced 3' thick ice in Hudson Bay, expect 6' ice depth in 2019.

*5' snow predicted north of Lake Huron for April 16, 2018.  That only historically happens about once every 80 years.

*Every household in the North needs to store food and have a water source, and plan for reduced electrical availability.

*Temperatures are still not above negative 10o F in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada for the spring growing season, and they are likely months away from being able to plow fields.  They had an average temp of -30o F for four months this winter.  Prediction: Neither of those provinces will be able to grow crops in 2019. 

*There may end up being no sunspot cycle 25 at all, other than a few strays.

*There may be an infrequent solar flare strong enough to cause locations on earth to heat up to 180o F, even without sunspots.

*The power grid has been predicted to begin failing some time between 2022 and 2024 (these scientists are not Px-ers) due to excessive power draw-down to maintain home warmth.

*All growing seasons will shorten, regardless of location

*Food costs will increase.

*Savings accounts will be drawn down to keep up with the price of food and fuel

*Shortages will materialize.

*Some areas will not be able to grow crops at all, either for one season or perpetually.  Famine will spread.

*Civil unrest will escalate within 2-4 years from now; sooner in some locations.

*This past year we had the lowest grape harvest since WWII due to freezes.

*The majority of farmland will fail within 3 years.

*In less than 3 years, large nations will invade smaller ones and confiscate their food stores.

*Russia will be the strongest nation in Europe, as it has spent half a billion dollars just on greenhouses in Siberia and has been preparing in other ways as well.  https://www.food-exhibitions.com/Market-Insights/Russia/Russian-greenhouse-construction-boom

*China will be the strong force in Asia, having also prepared, and will likely invade smaller countries of South Asia.  China has hundreds of thousands of greenhouses, and every developed block in town grows 80% of its own food.

*At some point in the future, it is likely that Russians will be able to drive across the frozen Bering Sea en mass into the U.S., and Canada will not attempt to stop it.

*The average home in Russia has an organic subsistence garden, unlike the average home in the U.S.  They are not accustomed to depending upon trips to the grocery store.

*Need 5 years' worth of grain seed to plant, if space to grow large crops, or 5 years' worth of grain storage food, plus a minimum of one year of every other kind of storage food, in quantities enough that you don't have to tightly ration.

*The coming Grand Solar Minimum will freeze navigation waterways in the U.S. to an extent that the U.S. government will not be able to break the ice with ice-breaker ships.

*The ice age will affect all modes of mass transit on land as well

*Electrical demand on the grid for winter heat will exceed carrying capacity.

Thanks to Jim for emailing me a correction on the Gauss unit of measurement for this article.  More on sunspot weakness here: http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2010/09/say-goodbye-sunspots

Also, I should note that Px researcher Terral Croft has stated that he does not believe that we are entering a Grand Solar Minimum, but rather a more limited period of climate disruption due to the presence of the Dark Star, which he feels may remain in our inner solar system for another 11 years after a pole shift.  Here are two interviews of him by different leaders in the Px research community from just this week:

The four magnetic fields of the sun are going out of phase with each other, and along the edges you'll get these little whirlpools of magnetic energy that are referred to as regions of magnetic instability, and it's those that are going to cause Carrington Events.

That's a good question Ilinda, given that events may play out over an extended period of time.  Since uncertainty in the future will be the new rule, it may be that we'll need to continue sheltering our electronics for a while.

Adapt 2030 focuses on some of the key global agricultural belts that are currently in danger of being lost:

Title: Re: The Solar Grand Minimum: Crops to shift south
Post by: R.R. Book on April 29, 2018, 10:27:45 AM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyJYs_BCof4 @ around 1:30:

Adapt 2030 posted a video today saying that the U.S. corn belt needs to be shifted a minimum of 100 miles to the south of the current location.  This will not result in additional acreage for corn, as the newly acquired corn growing land will be offset by lost corn acreage in the northern tier.  Narrator says that regardless, corn will still be a stronger crop than wheat has been this year.

Furthermore, most of Canada's output of multiple crops is expected to go offline, pushing up global food costs just based upon that nation's withdrawal of commodities alone from the global marketplace.  These projections are based upon a 1o Celsius temperature drop in Canada, which is the equivalent of a 33.8o F decline.  A 2o drop would not allow crops to ripen at all before the first autumn frosts, let alone produce a reduced harvest. 

As our crop output is reduced, global population on the current trajectory is expected to continue increasing (he hasn't read the Deagle report). 

A report on Kansas and Oklahoma wheat crops says that the limit has now been reached on how cold temperatures can drop there and still allow wheat to be grown.  Narrator points out that we are only just beginning to enter the Solar Minimum, and have not yet descended deeply into it, pondering what will happen once we do.  44% of the wheat produced this year has been graded poor to very poor.  Output is expected to drop to only 10 bushels per acre in the near future. 

Exacerbating the cold damage to crops is an on-going regional drought.  Please see screenshots #2 and 3 below.  Weather is so volatile there that in 10 hours recently the temperatures went from freezing to the triple digits.

Another report warns that another freeze could take place in the corn belt after June 1.  The further into summer that corn crops are pushed, the greater number of diseases and pests become a threat.

The nation of Brazil has virtually come to a halt due to:

*government drastically raising gas prices
*trucking industry unable to afford deliveries
*fuel running out at gas stations, some states being completely dry now
*very long waits in line for gas
*shut-down of public transit
*people unable to get to work
*closed highways
*truckers parking trucks wherever they run out of gas

Narrator says that MSM outside of Brazil is withholding this story from the public right now.  The average price of gas here in the U.S. as of Triple A's posting today is $2.969.

This article says that the Brazilian government has offered a 2-week 10% reduction of the price to get trucks moving again, after which it will go back up:

Kudos to Christian, the savvy young Ice Age Farmer, for starting up his own Grand Solar Minimum survival wiki. 

Here's a great article titled "Grand Solar Minimum Symptoms:"
http://wiki.iceagefarmer.com/wiki/Grand_Solar_Minimum_Symptoms

Major categories which he documents that we are facing are:
Crop shortages to feed humans
Crop shortages to feed livestock
Geophysical anomalies
Epidemics in humans and animals
Weather extremes

I especially enjoyed his wiki article on Icelandic chickens:

The article on Icelandic chickens resonated with me too, as they seem to offer everything I want in a chicken--great at foraging and feeding themselves, hens are great mothers, roosters not overly aggressive, except to each other at times, and apparently this breed is wary enough to dodge hawks and other predators successfully.

It's important sometimes to step outside of our immediate Truth Community social circle and hear from other highly educated people of different walks of life who are awakening.

Sociology professor Dr. Steven Ahmed from California puts out a stark warning to get prepared, saying that a handful of staple crops on which humans are almost entirely dependent only grow between 42 and 112 degrees F, and that any deviation from those temperatures will cause worldwide starvation.  Although he apparently has not been exposed to the recently posited reversal of global warming theory, his thoughts on sociological change accompanying any type of climate change are worth considering, especially when climate change is coupled with a projected increase in global population, or with other cataclysms such as may be caused by Px. 

Dr. Ahmed says to expect all cultural and political systems to be significantly impacted and altered, resulting in an amplification of tribal, national and religious conflicts as a result.  As a consequence, we are seeing intensification of police repression as the poor protest their plight. 

Quote
There is no possible way for all of the human beings on the planet to live as people in the United States and Western Europe have been living for a couple of centuries now.  You would need three planets in order for all of the people on Earth to live the lifestyle - the wasteful lifestyle - that has been lived in the United States.  It's impossible; it won't happen.  As a consequence, there's going to be revolt worldwide, and there's going to be political repression as a result.

Quote
Millions of people are going to die, and millions of people are going to leave impoverished nations, and move, driven by hope alone that they can find a better life for themselves according to the Western standard that has been promoted by the media.

As an ironic example, he notes the exodus of Africans from the continent with the richest mineral resources on the planet.

Another irony:
Quote
Most people in the Western world, in the United States, are not living well at all.

Quote
Poor people throughout the world, at the bottom of the social hierarchies, will die off first, as the elite scramble to sequester all life-sustaining resources for themselves...1% of the global population.  They do not share outside their immediate circle, and they will do anything to control the resources for themselves.

Quote
Some of us are beginning to realize that the virtual reality that many of us chose to participate in never, ever had rich meaning at all.

If average temperatures change by 3 or 4 degrees F over the next few decades, seed companies will control global food cultivation and distribution, especially in those situations where seafood and land-based food become extinct, he says.  As we lose more edible species, we become more dependent upon those who have sequestered the resources.

Quote
The group that controls food, and its distribution, will control what is left of humanity.  That will entail racial genocide based upon political policies which will include government-assisted suicide.

California, D.C., Oregon and Hawaii have already laid the legal groundwork to expand the policy of assisted suicide for non-terminally ill persons, and Dr. Ahmed says that the primary targets are the poor of all races.

The professor then cites a recent U.N. report titled "Water Scarcity by 2030: True for Every Second Person on Earth, saying "The challenge for us is clear and present, and it is dangerous."

Quote
The general idea of a reduced global population was etched in stone in the state of Georgia.  The Georgia Guidestones set a population limit of 500 million people on earth.  You are probably not included, unless you can entertain the rich, who will continue to thrive.  It is projected that by the year 2030, the 1% will control 2/3 of the global wealth.  Yes, that's obscene.  What that means is that 90% of the world's population will be their slaves living in the most despicable filthy cesspools imaginable, with dead oceans, poisoned air, hardly any fertility, no health care, and we can't even call what those folks will eat "food."

Quote
That population of 500 million people, etched in stone, would necessitate a reduction of 8.5 billion people beginning in the year 2030, when the global population is expected to reach 9 billion human beings.  And that's just 11 years from now.

Following-up to Post #22 of this thread from April 30 and updating the baseline fuel prices with projections for Winter, 2019 (defined as running from October, 2018 to March, 2019) based upon the June 12, 2018 "Short Term Energy Outlook Report" from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, which will likely be consulted by suppliers as a factor in setting upcoming prices:

https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/steo/report/winterfuels.php

Highlights:

*A colder winter is expected in 2019 than in 2018

*Natural gas costs are expected to increase by 12%

*Home heat oil costs are expected to increase by 17%

*Electricity is projected to increase by 8%

*Propane is expected to rise in price by 18%

*Temperatures are expected to be 13% colder next winter than last winter on average

*Temperatures are expected to be 27% colder in the South, the greatest drop of all regions

In the table below, the above predictions are considered to be the "Base Forecast," with price adjustments in the final two columns for any unexpected increase or decrease in winter temperatures  beyond those already projected:

Percent change in fuel bills from last winter (forecast)
     Base case forecast    If 10% warmer than forecast    If 10% colder than forecast

Heating Oil    17%    5%    32%
Natural Gas    12%    3%    19%
Propane         18%    2%    41%
Electricity         8%    4%    12%

Many fuel customers lock their prices in for the coming winter on July 1 of each year, so summer is a critical time for winter planning, both for fuel suppliers and buyers.

The EIA's next revised projection is due out on July 10, and each report is subject to adjustments according to unforeseen market conditions.

Grand solar minimum: Data shows this is the lowest cycle since records began!!

https://www.sott.net/article/390583-Grand-solar-minimum-Data-shows-this-is-the-lowest-cycle-since-records-began

We have only 300 years-odd of detailed solar observations with telescopes, half that of magnetic records, half again in the radio spectrum and less than that for most modern instrument records (and 12 years of Watts Up With That to interpret it). So as the months pass our knowledge of solar activity is still growing appreciably. The evidence points to a major transition of activity in 2006 which has returned us to the solar conditions of the 19th century. 19th century-type climate is expected to follow.


We now have 70 years of F10.7 data. The F10.7 flux is considered to be the most accurate measure of solar activity. The solar cycles are numbered. Solar Cycle 24 has about two years to go before the month of minimum. To date the F10.7 flux has had a floor of 64.


The interplanetary magnetic field has been in a downtrend since the early 1980s with the last three solar minima lining up. If this trend continues then it will get down to a monthly average of 2.8 in 2020 at the 24/25 minimum.

We now have 150 years of daily aa Index data. This is a geomagnetic index of the Sun's magnetic activity. This graph explains why the world warmed in the second half of the 20th century. In the 67 years of data up to 1935, the Sun's magnetic shield of the Earth averaged 15.7 on the aa Index. In the subsequent 71 years of the Modern Warm Period up to 2006, this shield was 50 per cent stronger, averaging 23.2 on the aa Index. Since 2006, the aa Index has been at Little Ice Age-like levels with an average of 15.8 and falling as we go further into the 24/25 solar minimum.

Cosmic rays are dominantly protons and helium atoms. They hit oxygen and nitrogen atoms in the upper atmosphere and cause a cascade of particles in the lower atmosphere which can be holding enough water for cloud droplet formation but lacks nucleation sites. The increased cloud cover during low solar acitivity increases the Earth's albedo and the atmosphere cools.

Earth's "Big Freeze" Looms As Sun Remains Devoid Of Sunspots For Most Of 2018

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-31/earths-big-freeze-looms-sun-remains-devoid-sunspots-most-2018

Scientists believe that Earth could experience a “big freeze” as the sun goes through what’s known as “solar minimum.” During this time, sunspots are minimal and the globe could be in for a wicked cold snap.

Scientists are reporting that the sun has been free of sunspots for a total of 133 days this year, according to The Express UK. With only 241 days of 2018 passing, that means the sun has been blank for the majority of the year. Experts continue to warn that this is a sign that the solar minimum is on its way.

 “The sun is spotless again. For the 133rd day this year, the face of the sun is blank,” wrote the website Space Weather.

“Solar minimum has returned, bringing extra cosmic rays, long-lasting holes in the sun’s atmosphere, and strangely pink auroras,” the website continued.

The sun follows a cycle of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum.

During a solar maximum, the sun gives off more heat and solar particles and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in the sun’s magnetic waves.  Our sun was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020, but it appears to be heading in that direction a little early which could prove to be bad news for warm weather lovers.


But a prolonged solar minimum could mean a “mini ice age.” The last time there was a prolonged solar minimum, it did, in fact, lead to a mini ice-age which was scientifically known as the Maunder minimum.  That little cold snap lasted for 70 years between the years 1645 and 1715. During this period, temperatures dropped globally by 1.3 degrees Celsius leading to shorter seasons and ultimately food shortages.

On October 15, the U.S. Energy Information Administration released its winter fuel price forecast:

https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/steo/report/winterfuels.php

Heating oil is expected to cost 20% more during the coming winter than it cost last winter.  This is largely due to a significant drop in inventories because a larger share is being exported overseas for expanding industrial use.  So in order to fuel factories elsewhere, there will be people turning down their thermostats here in order to afford their fuel bills.

Natural gas and electrical heat are also expected to experience more moderate price increases, though NG inventories are low and prices could spike later.

Percent change in fuel bills from last winter (forecast)
              
                 Base case
                  forecast     If 10% warmer
                                  than forecast    If 10% colder
                                                        than forecast

Heating Oil    20%              7%           33%
Natural Gas    5%              -4%          16%
Propane        -1%              -17%        15%
Electricity       3%              -2%           9%

The acknowledgment of global cooling is going mainstream now, though varying opinions still exist as to what may be the cause.  The phrase "Global Warming" is stealthily being replaced by "Climate Change."

It turns out that an embarrassing mathematical error, recently discovered and corrected, led to the Global Warming bandwagon, though it is also true that solar minimums are sometimes preceded by brief warmings:

While some outside the Px community such as David Mauriello say we could be on the cusp of an ice age lasting decades or more, others within the Px community such as Croft have expressed that it may last a dozen years and then pass when the visiting dark star, which rather may alternate between phases of luminosity according to some, leaves and the solar system settles back down again.  However, as Dr. Albers has documented using NASA's own footage, our sun is apparently being weakened by parasitic visiting bodies, possibly leaving earth to face something even more ominous than the passage of Px: an expedited cycling of the sun into its old age, possibly to be replaced at some auspicious time in the future by a prophetic and conveniently positioned new sun.

My 2 cents says climate science and climate modeling should separate into two distinct branches.  In my own way, I see climate modeling as mostly just a bunch of guesses and  conjectures, which rarely, if ever, match reality or come to fruition, partly because the scientists continue to discover new feedback loops., which can alter any projection.

But climate science in my view should cover the entire history of the study of climate up to and including current times.  What you see is what you get/jhave.

And here is an example of how writers confuse readers:

"The new results had a far larger range of possibilities in ocean temperature increases—between 10 and 70 percent: still warmer, but rendering the study vague even for the sometimes unknowable science of climate modelling."

What is it exactly that "had a far larger range of possibilities in ocean temperature increases"?  Is it the temperatures projected for the future?  Is it the recent past increases?  What is the projected time span for the putative increases, if he is discussing future changes?   

I admit I only read the first article linked, so I'm basing this post on that article, which could have been a bit more clear. 

If writers would state up front they are discussing the climate as it was, and as it is, and any transitions in between the two, OR they are discussing models of the future, then readers can decide if they want to read it.  If they are discussing models for the future, especially far future, I'd probably not waste my time reading it.

Good points Ilinda, and much of the climate modeling being discussed in the GSM community potentially affects the future, both near and far. 

However, they're making their projections for the same reasons that we're projecting ramifications of the visit by Px:

1. Because there is data from the past that forms a discernable pattern

2. Because history repeats

3. Because many died in the past from each type of cataclysm (both GSM and Px)

4. Because we're living in the information age and feel a calling to prepare and warn others

In other words, this time, maybe there's a chance to survive.  We lose nothing by preparing.

Freakish November Weather Is Just A Taste Of Things To Come: Solar Minimum Wreaking Havoc As Winter Misery Index Spikes

Freakish November Weather Is Just A Taste Of Things To Come: Solar Minimum Wreaking Havoc As Winter Misery Index Spikes

winter_misery_index.png
By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In this new story by Michael Snyder over at End of the American Dream that Steve Quayle had linked to on his website  this morning, Snyder reports what may be one of America's coldest and snowiest November's ever may only be getting worse.

While the left continues to scream 'global warming' and attacking President Trump for backing out of the Paris Climate change agreement, in the only video at the bottom of this story, Rick Wiles and TruNews feature Professor Valentina Zkarkova, whose latest weather models have been updated to show our planet may now be entering a cold snap lasting not only decades, but centuries.

And while we won't go out on a limb and claim a 350-year ice age is coming to our planet as we read in this TruNews story and hear in the video from Professor Zkarkova, as Ice Age Now had reported back on November 12th in a story which the Drudge Report had linked to, according to NASA scientist Martin Mlynczak, we could be witnessing record cold weather in a matter of months due to a lack of sun spots.

“If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold,” said Mlynczak. “We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.” And in the same story they report that according to Dr. Tony Philips back on September 27th, “The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age".

And as we see in the map on the top of this story taken from this November 27th story at the Weather Channel, approaching the end of November, it's been one of the most miserable starts to winter on record with the 'misery index' at 'extreme' or 'severe' for huge chunks of the country. From that story.

As Snyder reports in his new story, America's freakish weather in November is just a taste of things to come with winter not even officially kicking off for 3 more weeks and already city after city hitting record cold temperatures for the month. Combined with even more cities that have hit record precipitation rates for the month of November leads us to ask, are weather modification programs going on? From Snyder's story: 

Nov. 1-26 was the third-coldest on record in Kansas City, Missouri; third-coldest in Little Rock, Arkansas; seventh-coldest in St. Louis; seventh-coldest in Oklahoma City; ninth-coldest in Des Moines, Iowa; and tied for the ninth-coldest in Dallas/Fort Worth, according to data from NOAA’s Regional Climate Centers. It has also been a top-10-coldest November in parts of upstate New York and New England.

Nov. 1-26 was the second-coldest on record in Bangor, Maine; third-coldest in Syracuse, New York; fourth-coldest in Binghamton, New York; fifth-coldest in Portland, Maine; fifth-coldest in Concord, New Hampshire; seventh-coldest in Worcester, Massachusetts; eighth-coldest in Buffalo, New York; and tied for the eighth-coldest in Hartford, Connecticut.

And we have witnessed an extraordinary amount of precipitation this month as well. In fact, this has been the wettest November ever recorded for major cities all along the east coast…

Through Nov. 26, the month ranked as the wettest November on record in Washington D.C.; Baltimore; Philadelphia; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Hartford, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; and Concord, New Hampshire, according to data from NOAA’s Regional Climate Centers.

I certainly agree we should be preparing for the worst and hoping for the best because the PX researchers know of the cyclical nature of these cosmic bodies, as well as the physics that governs their movements.

  Much has been written about the cycles, in various books and even on clay scrolls, so we would be wise to pay attention to those who lived through some of those cycles.

Was anyone given a ballot with which to vote on blocking out sunlight next spring?

I wasn't.

This article says that Harvard and Bill Gates are making that momentous decision on our behalf:
https://prepforthat.com/harvard-scientists-block-suns-rays/

Will this reduce the ability of sunlight-starved crops to photosynthesize?

Will this mean that fewer varieties of crops may be successfully grown, and smaller yields?

Will this mean an acceleration of famine and hunger?

Was any person in leadership within our representative Republic consulted first?

How do you feel about having MSM break a story like this to you, without a clear chain of authority being cited for the decision-making process?

Are we expected to become accustomed to having such decisions made on our behalf?

How does the international community feel about this?

Farmers?

Were they consulted first?

Will this mean longer winters?

Less ability to produce vitamin D internally?

Is blocking the sun actually an effort to conceal something else?

Lots of questions.

In a nutshell (pun intended), the people who make such life-altering and planet-altering decisions with or without consulting others are completely NUTS.  Yeah.  Nuts.  Crazy.  Insane.  Stupid.  Perhaps even homicidal and/or suicidal. Did I forget anything?

We've already seen how Bill and Melinda Gates are funding vaccines in third world countries, when in fact, the ingredients in some of those vaccines has been of questionable safety and/or content. 

My own 2 cents for those of us able (so far) to grow some of our own food, we'd be wise to start experimenting with mirrors to help increase whatever sunlight is allowed to reach earth, particularly aiming the mirrors at our crops.

I don't mean very large overly-bright things, but perhaps even something as primitive as parabola-shaped contraptions made of aluminum flashing.  That stuff is quite reflective, but not so bright as to burn leaves, as actual mirrors might do.

We're in a bind anyway due to the "global dimming" a phenomenon more clearly researched right after  9-11, and now we'll have to deal with TPTB-dimming.  I guess I'd better read some of the articles you liked, before whining more.

@ around 10:45 on this video, David Dubyne begins noting that this present Grand Solar Minimum appears to be unfolding in a very different manner than previous ones.  The transition period has been too brief, and the descent into global cooling too rapid to compare with previous minima.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13lpBsIES4M

If global cooling is not following a normal GSM pattern, and not following an ice age pattern, then what exactly is happening, he questions?  He references a 12,000-ish and a 25,000+ year cycle from ancient texts, but stops short of directly connecting to the cycle of the Nemesis star system.

He notes the construction of underground bunkers all over the world.

On the present course, he gives a latest date of 2028 for the arrival of extreme food scarcity, anticipating numerous changes in societal patterns - as well as distractions from PTB - between now and then.  In addition, David expects heating fuel (and all fuel) prices to begin rising significantly, as well as winter conditions necessitating military rescues of entire Northern communities.

Title: Re: The Solar Grand Minimum - Heating fuel shortages
Post by: R.R. Book 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. 
Title: Re: The Solar Grand Minimum
Post by: R.R. Book on December 28, 2018, 06:35:54 PM
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.

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.

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.

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...

(http://radiantcreators.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/IMG_9356-225x300.jpg)

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?

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

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.

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

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10dH1C9yFtQ

*We can put our crop seeds in our mouths before planting them to allow them to adapt themselves to our DNA

*We can focus our intentions on our crops for 15 minutes per day for improved yields

*We can direct sound frequencies or music at our crops

*If we spend time caring for nature daily, nature will reciprocate and take care of us

*We can go on foraging trips, either alone or with someone, and learn which plants to gather and when.

A Perfect Storm of Cosmic Rays  ::) :-[

https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2019/04/23/a-perfect-storm-of-cosmic-rays/

April 23, 2019: Ten years ago, NASA reported a “perfect storm of cosmic rays.” During the year 2009, radiation peppering Earth from deep space reached a 50-year high, registering levels never before seen during the Space Age.

It’s about to happen again.

Ground-based neutron monitors and high-altitude cosmic ray balloons are registering a new increase in cosmic rays. The Oulu neutron monitor in Finland, which has been making measurements since 1964, reports levels in April 2019 only percentage points below the Space Age maximum of 2009:

What’s going on? The answer is “Solar Minimum.” During the low phase of the 11-year solar cycle, the sun’s magnetic field and solar wind weaken. Cosmic rays find it easier to penetrate the inner solar system. In 2009, the sun experienced the deepest solar minimum in a century. Cosmic rays reaching Earth naturally surged.

Ten years later, solar minimum is back with renewed weakening of the sun’s magnetic field and the solar wind. Again, it’s a “perfect storm.” A panel of experts led by NOAA and NASA recently predicted that the current minimum would reach a nadir in late 2019 or 2020, likely matching the record-setting minimum of 2009. If they’re right, cosmic rays will continue to increase, with a new record possible in the near future.

Highlights from Part IV of Dave DuByne's discussion with Craig Simpson:

*In the Bosnian War, survivors discovered that their needs were in this order:

1. food and water
2. firearms and ammo (with a high personal and group vibration)
3. first aid & antibiotics (large quantities)

*The Grand Solar Minimum is like just another natural season, though a prolonged one

*DuByne expects a 25% global population loss by 2030 (more conservative than Deagel?)

*Some governments will want to try to tax barter items

*Some governments may attempt to confiscate the tools necessary for farming, and survivors must not give in to that passively.

Quote
I feel that historians will look back at this and see it as a time when humanity started thriving again.
~Craig Simpson

Quote
The Grand Solar Minimum is not going to be a complete freeze-out for 30 straight years or 20 straight years.  There will be some good years when they'll be able to get a harvest out.  Not as abundant as it has been globally, but well above what it was in the prior years (of the GSM).  Between those lean years there should be some normalcy back to the economy again, so if you didn't procure something in the first round, you should be able to get it in the second round when prices go back down again.

Some very interesting comments in Part III of Dave DuByne's discussion with Craig Simpson:

For those interested in some interesting "plant research":

Primary Perception: Biocommunication with Plants, Living Foods, and Human Cells

https://www.amazon.com/Primary-Perception-Biocommunication-Plants-Living/dp/0966435435/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Cleve+Backster&qid=1562366811&s=gateway&sr=8-1

This is the only book by Cleve Backster himself, describing 36 years of research in biocommunication, observed electrical responses in plant life and other living organisms. All life forms have the capability of responding to one another, from plants and bacteria to foods and animal cells. Most amazing is his work with human leukocytes. These discoveries have opened up a new paradigm in science, ecology and healing.

He talked to plants. And they talked back!

https://www.nytimes.com/news/the-lives-they-lived/2013/12/21/cleve-backster/

Backster concluded that plants had some heretofore undiscovered sense (he called it primary perception) that could detect and respond to human thoughts and emotions. When he publicized his findings, the so-called Backster effect became a pop-culture hit.

There was a TV program hosted by Leonard Nimoy and a best-selling book, “The Secret Life of Plants,” inspired by Backsters research. Backster was interviewed by Johnny Carson, Art Linkletter, Merv Griffin and David Frost. Even Backsters old employers at the C.I.A. investigated the possibility of human-plant communication.

Are You Ready For A Catastrophically Cold Winter? Here's What The Mainstream Media Won't Tell You...  :-[

https://www.zerohedge.com/health/are-you-ready-catastrophically-cold-winter-heres-what-mainstream-media-wont-tell-you

Experts are warning us that this will be a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” winter, and even though the official beginning of winter is still over a month away, it already feels like that in much of the country right now.

Over the next several days, it will literally feel like it is mid-January in much of the central and eastern portions of the United States. Many areas will be hit by temperatures that are 30 degrees below normal, and heavy snow is expected in some areas of the Midwest. Unfortunately, this bitterly cold weather is coming at a very bad time for corn farmers. According to the latest USDA crop progress report, only 52 percent of the corn in the middle of the country has been harvested. So about half of the corn is still sitting out there, and these extraordinarily low temperatures could potentially be absolutely devastating. In essence, this cold front threatens to put an exclamation point on an absolutely horrific year for U.S. farmers. According to the National Weather Service, we could possibly see “170 potential daily record cold high temperatures” over the next three days…

    “The National Weather Service is forecasting 170 potential daily record cold high temperatures Monday to Wednesday,” tweeted Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman. “A little taste of January in November.”


    The temperature nosedive will be a three-day process as a cold front charges across the central and eastern U.S. from Sunday into Tuesday.

So why is this happening?

It is actually quite simple.

During a solar minimum, solar activity drops to very low levels, and that tends to mean lower temperatures on Earth.

Earlier this year, a panel of experts gathered to discuss the current solar minimum, and they came to the conclusion that it “could last for years”…

    If you like solar minimum, good news: It could last for years. That was one of the predictions issued last week by an international panel of experts who gathered at NOAA’s annual Space Weather Workshop to forecast the next solar cycle. If the panel is correct, already-low sunspot counts will reach a nadir sometime between July 2019 and Sept 2020, followed by a slow recovery toward a new Solar Maximum in 2023-2026.

    “We expect Solar Cycle 25 will be very similar to Cycle 24: another fairly weak maximum, preceded by a long, deep minimum,” says panel co-chair Lisa Upton, a solar physicist with Space Systems Research Corp.

But that would actually be a best case scenario.

There are others that believe that we have now entered a “grand solar minimum” such as the one that our planet experienced several hundred years ago. That one was known as “the Maunder Minimum”, and it resulted in a “little ice age”…


    The extreme example happened between 1645 and 1715 when the normal 11-year sunspot cycle vanished. This period, called the Maunder Minimum, was accompanied by bitterly cold winters in the American colonies. Fishing settlements in Iceland and Greenland were abandoned. Icebergs were seen near the English channel. The canals of Venice froze. It was a time of great hardship.

So far in 2019, there have been more than 200 days without a single sunspot on the sun.

We do not know when solar activity will return to normal, but for now we should all prepare for a bitterly cold winter.

Beyond that, we had better hope that we have not entered another “Maunder Minimum”, because right now we are struggling to feed everyone on the planet even in the best of years.

My one thought is:

...and will probably regret that by January, when my one thought will be @!$&*#

OK, as soon as I posted that it started snowing hard outside here, for the first time this season... 8)
