Starvation: Coming to Your Town…Soon

Way back in 2006, NASA’s David Hathaway said on their website that Solar Cycle 25, which will start around 2022 was going to be a low sunspot cycle. Low sunspot cycles, as is rapidly becoming apparent, is linked to future cold weather. Neither they or the government said anything at the time or during the seven years since it was published.

May 10, 2006: The Sun’s Great Conveyor Belt has slowed to a record-low crawl, according to research by NASA solar physicist David Hathaway. “It’s off the bottom of the charts,” he says. “This has important repercussions for future solar activity.”

see captionThe Great Conveyor Belt is a massive circulating current of fire (hot plasma) within the Sun. It has two branches, north and south, each taking about 40 years to perform one complete circuit. Researchers believe the turning of the belt controls the sunspot cycle, and that’s why the slowdown is important.

“Normally, the conveyor belt moves about 1 meter per second—walking pace,” says Hathaway. “That’s how it has been since the late 19th century.” In recent years, however, the belt has decelerated to 0.75 m/s in the north and 0.35 m/s in the south. “We’ve never seen speeds so low.”

According to theory and observation, the speed of the belt foretells the intensity of sunspot activity ~20 years in the future. A slow belt means lower solar activity; a fast belt means stronger activity. The reasons for this are explained in the Science@NASA story Solar Storm Warning.

“The slowdown we see now means that Solar Cycle 25, peaking around the year 2022, could be one of the weakest in centuries,” says Hathaway. (source)

Scientists have known for some time that a long, low sunspot cycle tends to make the next solar cycle, in this case Solar cycle 25, weaker than its predecessor.

So, if people, including myself, think that Cyle 24, our current cycle, is likely to lead to global cooling, what is being said about Cycle 25?

NASA themselves have mentioned the sunspot peak for cycle 25 may be seven.

Yes, you read that right 7. One more than six and one less than eight.

Their prediction for the current cycle was 67…give or take a spot they were correct. So if they are right about Cycle 25 what will that mean for us?

‘World temperatures may end up a lot cooler than now for 50 years or more,’ said Henrik Svensmark, director of the Center for Sun-Climate Research at Denmark’s National Space Institute. ‘It will take a long battle to convince some climate scientists that the sun is important. It may well be that the sun is going to demonstrate this on its own, without the need for their help.’ (source)

As you can see the NASA figure of a peak of 7 for Solar cycle 25 puts it in Maunder Minimum territory. Not good for us heat loving humans, and our heat loving crops and livestock.

We know that humans can get by in intense cold, but doing so brings with it some very major difficulties, predominantly food.

Returning to Maunder Minimum temperatures, or even Dalton Minimum temperatures is going to represent a major problem for agriculture and livestock across the northern hemisphere.

We see the results of cold weather on both crops and livestock every year. Wheat rotting in the fields due to cold and rain, cattle freezing to death under a thick blanket of snow, but generally, these are isolated incidents.

Imagine if you can the whole of North America, as well as the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, facing the same crisis at the same time.

  • No shipments of grain passing back and forth across the oceans as one nation helps out another in its time of need.
  • Empty shelves in supermarkets for months at a time because trucks just can’t make it through due to the weather.
  • Prices skyrocketing to the extent that fresh produce becomes unaffordable to the masses, available only to those than can procure and transport it.
  • Most winters spent without grid-supplied power as lines come down with the weight of snow and ice.
  • Cool and wet summers not just affecting commercial farmers but what you can grow in your own yard.

The problem with the future is that one day it arrives, and it has, it’s here, it’s now. Global warming ceased in 1998, very slowly, almost imperceptibly, cooling has begun. As we move forward in time the pace will quicken, the changes become more noticeable. With Solar Cycle 25 compounding the effects of Cycle 24, we need to think about the next decade or so and we need to do it now.

At this point we live in a country where there is a relative abundance of food. This is going to change and once the weather starts behaving differently it will be to late to set any survival plans you have in motion. Prices will rise fast, and scarcity will become more common. You need to start today.

None of us has lived through a truly cold period that just goes on and on. We have all suffered bad winters, and the massive relief when they are over, and we move on and head towards summer. Picture you and your family trying to survive six months of bitterly cold weather each year and finding the summer waterlogs fields and gardens. Realistically, how long would you last?

  • Can you honestly say you have enough fuel to supply an alternate means of heating your home and cooking food?
  • Do you actually have enough on hand to survive six months?
  • What about the following year, how will you deal with that?

Unlike most things we think MAY happen in the future, this catastrophe is actually unfolding before our very eyes. The evidence is there for all to see.

There is no reason to think that the relationship between the Sun and the Earth is going to suddenly change. Our climate moves in cycles, and this is just one cycle of many.

  • The difference this time is that there are far more mouths to feed.
  • We are reliant on the grid and piped utilities.
  • Many of us have lost, or never had, the skills to survive on our own merit.
  • We have become a ‘just in time’ society.

All of these things, and no doubt you can think of countless others, make us ill-equipped to deal with what is coming. Read, research, stock up and generally prepare because if nature decides this is what’s going to happen, it will happen, and that’s the end of it.

Mother Nature does not negotiate and cares nothing for the effects on our lives.

    Look up the Vostock Ice Cores. 430,000 years of data showing an ice age about every 110,000 years. The nice weather we’ve enjoyed the last 11,000 years is coming to an end. We’re due for the big freeze, again.

    We in Northern Canada are already noticing the change. Summer was a write-off with cloud and rain and we already have had snow, off and on since October, with temperatures in the low MINUS 20’s (Centigrade).Expecting next week MINUS 31.
    WE have had a snow fall of at least a foot deep but 8 inches has stayed on the ground. I have never seen that in December…..late January, and early February yes. If you love Winter this is the place to be Fortunately I have land in Africa and South America. I have had enough winter. I am 73.

    Jaworowski’s “CO2, the Greatest Scandal of our time” details how, at the 1992 Rio Conference, they decided to destroy the world’s industrial civilization. They decided on Global Warming and expected the individual countries to do it voluntarily to save the planet. Conspirators were the Club of Rome, Jacques Chirac, Al Gore, Gorbachev, and a host of others I don’t recall. The intent was to reduce the planet’s population by half as a starter. With no industry, people could not survive and prosper. This article is right on point.

        Right! He was the Secretary General of the 92 Rio Earth Conference. Not bad for a socialist high school dropout.

    Even the low sunspot numbers do not tell the whole story. Solar wind speed and density is off, and what spots there are either do not form tight umbral groups (opposing polarity close proximity) or do, yet do not produce strong flares. The sun is not performing as it should during a solar max.

    Suspicious0bservers ( http://www.youtube.com/user/Suspicious0bservers ) has been tracking this very well with daily solar updates. We may be heading into a Maunder Minimum.

    This is one of the reasons why I have been advocating (and agitating, at times yelling and screaming) for the fast-track development of Thorium reactors http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG1YjDdI_c8 … our society is more fragile than it was in the 17-18th century. THERE IS NO WORKABLE SURVIVAL PREPPER SCENARIO for a mini ice age because of population. Flee to warmer latitudes and you will (likely) become a statistic as the massive majority of humans will do so, they will wind up eating each other. Flee North and you will be ‘safer’ from your fellow humans — but that is not workable either as the number of people who DO flee North will likely exceed any population density that existed in the 17-18th century — they will deplete the scare local game available and will turn full-mercenary upon one another.

    We have grown past the point where we can huddle around a campfire safely. And (sorry to say) we ARE NOT made of the same stuff as the people who ‘evolved’ through previous cold spells. They did not have our population to contend with. There are not enough bullets available to defend yourselves against starving humans who would last just long enough to overwhelm you with superior numbers. And also sorry to say, these would tend not to be the people who would be able to survive after you (and your easy pickins) are gone.

    To survive through even a mini-ice age — not a full one — we must huddle around nuclear power plants burning nuclear fire that are entirely self-contained, store fuel for many years, can support surrounding populations with efficient use of electricity for (bare minimum) heat and Winter crops in greenhouses and new methods for raising short-season grains. Imagine short season agriculture without fossil fuel. With manual labor it could not be done quickly enough, but with electricity (yes, tractors with trailing wires, fuck battery technology) it is at least possible.

    We almost have the technology to do this. The thinking has been done, it’s just a task of engineering. It needs to become a priority.
