    Default Are You Ready For A Catastrophically Cold Winter?

    Are You Ready For A Catastrophically Cold Winter? Here Is What The Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You…

    November 11, 2019



    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.
    We are being told that low temperatures in certain portions of Texas could plunge into the teens, and all across the Upper Midwest we could see low temperatures that are well below zero.

    Of course this is not the first wave of record cold weather to come rolling through this season. During the month of October, a couple of major blizzards roared through the Midwest and countless new cold temperature records were established.

    And unfortunately we should expect a lot more bitter weather in the months ahead. Both the Farmers’ Almanac and the Old Farmer’s Almanac are projecting that this upcoming winter will be unusually cold and snowy
    Not long after the Farmers’ Almanac suggested it would be a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” season, the *other* Farmer’s Almanac has released its annual weather forecast—and it’s equally upsetting.
    While the first publication focused on the cold temperatures anticipated this winter, the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that excessive snowfall will be the most noteworthy part of the season.
    The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which was founded in 1792, says that the upcoming winter “will be remembered for strong storms” featuring heavy rain, sleet, and a lot of snow. The periodical actually used the word “snow-verload” to describe the conditions we can expect in the coming months.
    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.

    Ultimately, the longer winters and shorter summers during the “Maunder Minimum” resulted in famine all over the globe, and multitudes ended up perishing
    The Maunder Minimum is the most famous cold period of the Little Ice Age. Temperatures plummeted in Europe (Figs. 14.3–14.7), the growing season became shorter by more than a month, the number of snowy days increased from a few to 20–30, the ground froze to several feet, alpine glaciers advanced all over the world, glaciers in the Swiss Alps encroached on farms and buried villages, tree-lines in the Alps dropped, sea ports were blocked by sea ice that surrounded Iceland and Holland for about 20 miles, wine grape harvests diminished, and cereal grain harvests failed, leading to mass famines (Fagan, 2007). The Thames River and canals and rivers of the Netherlands froze over during the winter (Fig. 14.3). The population of Iceland decreased by about half. In parts of China, warm-weather crops that had been grown for centuries were abandoned. In North America, early European settlers experienced exceptionally severe winters.

    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.

    Despite all of our advanced technology, we remain deeply dependent on the weather. Even a year or two of bad harvests could potentially be absolutely catastrophic, and the mainstream media will not tell us the truth until it is way too late to do anything about it.

    Default Experts Predict a Long, Deep Solar Minimum

    Experts Predict a Long, Deep Solar Minimum

    April 10, 2019 / Dr.Tony Phillips

    April 10, 2019: 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.



    The solar cycle is like a pendulum, swinging back and forth between periods of high and low sunspot number every 11 years or so.
    Researchers have been tracking the cycle since it was discovered in the 19th century. Not all cycles are alike. Some are intense, with lots of sunspots and explosive solar flares; the Space Age began with a big booming solar maximum. Others are weak, such as the most recent, Solar Cycle 24, which peaked in 2012-2014 with relatively little action.

    Researchers are still learning to predict the ebb and flow of solar activity. Forecasting techniques range from physical models of the sun’s inner magnetic dynamo to statistical methods akin to those used by stock market analysts.

    “We assessed ~61 predictions in the following categories: Climatology, Dynamo, Machine Learning/Neural Networks, Precursor Methods, Spectral/Statistical Methods, Surface Flux Transport, and Other,” says Upton. “The majority agreed that Solar Cycle 25 would be very similar to Solar Cycle 24.”

    “Here,” she says, “is a figure showing the last minimum and where we are with the current minimum.”



    “As you can see – we haven’t quite reached the lowest levels of the last cycle – where we experienced several consecutive months with no sunspots. However, the panel expects that we should reach those levels [between now and the end of 2020].”

    In recent years, the Internet has buzzed with the idea that a super-deep solar minimum such as the 70-year Maunder Minimum of the 17th century might cool the Earth, saving us from climate change. That’s not what the panel is saying, however.

    “There is no indication that we are currently approaching a Maunder-type minimum in solar activity,” says Upton. Solar minimum will be deep, but not that deep.

    The panel predicts a “fairly weak” Solar Cycle 25. What does that mean? Saying that a solar cycle is “weak” is a bit like saying hurricane season will be “weak.” In other words, there may be fewer storms, but when a storm comes, you’d better batten down the hatches. “Weak” Solar Cycle 24 produced a number of intense X-class solar flares, strong geomagnetic storms, and even a Ground Level Event (GLE) when solar energetic particles reached Earth’s surface. An equally “weak” Solar Cycle 25 could do the same 3 or 4 years hence.



    Meanwhile, we have solar minimum. This is a widely misunderstood phase of the solar cycle. Many people think it brings a period of dull quiet. In fact, space weather changes in interesting ways. For instance, as the sun’s magnetic field weakens, holes open in the sun’s atmosphere. Emerging streams of solar wind buffet Earth’s magnetic field, sustaining auroras even without solar flares and sunspots. Some observers believe that Solar Minimum auroras have a distinctive palette, pinker than during other phases of the solar cycle.

    The sun’s weakening magnetic field also allows cosmic rays to enter the solar system. Energetic particles from deep space penetrate Earth’s atmosphere with a myriad of possible effects ranging from changes in upper atmospheric electricity to extra doses of radiation for people on airplanes.

    Finally, the sun dims, especially at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths. This, in turn, causes the upper atmosphere to cool and contract. Aerodynamic drag that would normally cause satellites to decay is reduced; space junk accumulates. This effect makes solar minimum a terrible time to blow up satellites–although people do it anyway.

    The Solar Cycle Prediction Panel is comprised of scientists representing NOAA, NASA, the International Space Environment Services, and other U.S. and international scientists. Their April 5th prediction was preliminary, and they plan to issue a refined forecast by the end of 2019. Stay tuned.

    Although it has not received an official number from NOAA, there is a small sunspot at the circled location. Its magnetic polarity suggests it is a member of new Solar Cycle 25. Credit: SDO/HMI

    Total solar irradiance has dropped from 1361.5 Watts per square meter at the maximum of Solar Cycle 24 to 1360.62 where it is now near this solar minimum. Back during the Maunder minimum it was thought to have been as low as 1360.

    The decreaced TSI that we're seeing now may reduce the warming that we would otherwise be experiencing due to anthropogenic causes.

    You just can't help it with the make believe can you?
    You have no proof at all, just pure conjecture, bordering on fantasy.

    The facts in evidence show its getting colder, and has been for years. We're approaching a new ice age, not fantasy tropical island, though I would much prefer it was the other way around.

    Then we had kingdoms. They were run by kings.

    Ya man made warming. What a Huge Farce and lies that so many have taken to be the truth. We are just getting back to what the weather was like back in the 50's and 50's when tons of snow fell, cold temps but NOW with the net and all those lemons out there EVERY single storm, every single cold snap, every single summer storm is a National Enquirer Headline grabbing Doom and Gloom post and every time it is just what the earth AND sun has been doing for eons. Not doom and gloom but it sure feeds those that are so hungry for their daily fill of the doom and gloom and sensationalisms of the mass media and the internet to spread such things around. What A Laugh That Is. LOL
    I remember back in the early 70's on a Sunday morning I drove my Grandmother to a bowling tournament 20 miles the Air Temp was Minus 41 Degrees ~! I warmed up the car and covered the radiator completely with a piece of cardboard, and off we went. Sure Glad the Doom and gloomers were not around in those days as well as the headline grabbing internet and mass media who loves to spread doom headlines around the nation these days along with so many others. LOL

    Back in June 1980 Dallas hit a record 113 degrees TWICE two days in a row !!

    It hasnt been that hot since.


    Natural Climate Factors

    " As mentioned, the Earth receives energy from the Sun, loses that energy to space, and is further warmed by the role of greenhouse gases in delaying that energy loss. But there are other natural processes that influence Earth’s surface temperature by changing one of these three parameters. One dramatic process is variations in Earth’s orbit about the Sun that produces significant variations in solar radiation received over time periods measured in several thousand years. Such orbital-caused effects were instrumental in producing past ice ages. Volcanoes emit some CO2, but perhaps sulfate aerosols they emit are more important to short term temperature changes. These aerosols (also produced by some human activity) reflect solar radiation and produce cooling, although the amount is still uncertain. Significant correlation seems to exist between temperature over the past few centuries and solar activity as measured by sunspot numbers. Short-term variations (e.g. decades) in solar output of visible radiation (where the Sun emits most of its energy) is modest and not the sole cause of observed global warming over the past century. However, solar output at other energies is much more variable, and some have argued these contribute to global temperature change. [The two most discussed solar variations are in the ratio of high-energy (UV) to visible radiation, which can change upper atmosphere albedo, and in energetic particle outflow, whose effect on cosmic ray flux is known to change particle ionization in Earth’s atmosphere and possibly alter reflective (higher albedo) cloud cover. Although strong circumstantial evidence exists for both processes, quantitative evidence for their influence on global temperature is lacking.] Another factor producing short term temperature changes, which only recently has been appreciated, is ocean mixing. Because the oceans contain most of Earth’s near-surface heat and because their temperature varies significantly with depth, changes in vertical ocean mixing can and does change surface temperature sufficiently that atmospheric temperature is affected. [The majority of solar radiation directly enters the oceans. The oceans readily influence atmospheric temperatures (e.g. via water evaporation), but transferring atmospheric heat into the oceans is more difficult.] Examples of the effect of oceans were demonstrated by El Nino events in 1997-98 and 2015-16, when warm water upwelling in the tropical Pacific significantly warmed global temperature, which later returned to near previous values. It is known that Ocean currents also have longer term mixing cycles (e.g. the AMO, Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, of about 60 years), which are poorly understood. The influence of these cycles on decadal global temperature variations may have been underestimated. Whatever the cause, global temperature over the past few thousand years has varied by up to a few deg-C. One of the larger temperature changes was from the Medieval Period temperature high about 800-1000 years ago (when the Vikings settled Greenland), followed by a drop into the Little Ice Age a few hundred years ago (when western Europe and other regions experienced dramatically colder weather). For the past ~300 years global temperature has been increasing. Prior to the mid-20th century, these global temperature variations could not have been caused by CO2, which remained relatively constant. The Little Ice Age cooling does correspond to a lengthy period of very low solar activity, which has subsequently been increasing. This is suggestive, but does not prove, that solar output played a role in producing these temperature variations. The point is that there have been temperature variations over the past few millennia whose specific cause is not clear (but not due to changing CO2) and that these natural factors may still be occurring and may be unrecognized."

    SSW Event could divert ‘the Polar Express’ to Europe and North America this Holiday Season


    The GFS and it’s ensembles are forecasting a dramatic reduction in westerly Zonal winds over the North Pole during the latter half of November and throughout December.

    IMPACTS OF AN SSW

    Following the onset of an SSW event, temperatures at the pole will often climb sharply, and the high altitude winds will have reversed to flow in an eastward direction instead of their usual westward one.These eastward winds progress down through the atmosphere and weaken the jet stream, often resulting in easterly winds near the surface which usually bring with them a dramatic drop in temperatures across Europe and North America.Check out what happened to temps over the South Pole in September as an SSW took hold there

    But just think how hot it will get after the Ice Age is over.
    We must continue to combat man made global warming, even during the coming glaciation.
