    Dark, Cold Years Are Coming, So You’d Better Get Ready

    By Anony Mee

    The climate is warming! No, the climate is cooling! We’re all gonna die! The answer is...all true. Folks just need to chill out and understand that climate’s gonna climate, and that’s all there is to it.

    The sun is a very steady oscillator says Prof. Valentina Zharkova, of Northumbria University. I have followed her work with great interest since watching her presentation at the Global Warming Policy Forum in 2018. She confidently predicted a Modern Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) running from 2020 through 2053, about half as long as the previous Maunder Minimum but just as intense. Controversial at first, now even U.S. agencies have adopted the science and speak of the current modern GSM.

    It’s complex science. Simply put, in 2003 the EU asked Dr. Zharkova and her team to produce a catalog of solar activity. Once the data was compiled, they investigated what they could learn from it. Building on previous research and incorporating contemporaneous works, they developed a formula that accurately identified past sunspot activity and could be used to predict future events.

    We know about the 11-year solar cycles. They start at the minimum point of solar activity, build over five or six years to maximum activity, then decrease again to a minimum. Solar cycle 25 began in December 2019.

    Grand solar minimums, where maximum solar activity is dramatically subdued over several cycles, occur every 350 to 400 years. Astrophysics wonks must be over the moon to be living through one.

    Super grand-solar cycles last around 2,000 years, with the first thousand bringing a warming of Earth’s climate and the second thousand a cooling. We’re about 400 years into the warming phase of one of these cycles which began around the time of the Maunder Minimum. The rise in terrestrial temperature has held steady at about 0.5 degrees Centigrade every hundred years and should do so until around the year 2600.

    So today we’re in the rising phase of a solar cycle (slight warming) at the beginning of a GSM (intense cooling) in the warming phase of a super-grand solar cycle (persistent warming). All generated by the sun, not people. That’s us, warming and cooling at the same time.

    During a GSM, as the number of sunspots wanes, the sun’s magnetic field shrinks almost to the surface of the sun. Normally it acts as a shield against cosmic radiation and particles for the entire solar system. Without the protection of the sun’s magnetic field, we are bombarded by cosmic matter.

    That matter impacts air molecules in the atmosphere, creating ions that accelerate the transformation of aerosols into condensation nuclei. This increases the formation of low clouds made from water vapor present in the air. They block the sun, causing the earth’s temperature to cool.

    Over the past couple of years, sunspot activity has been remarkably low. Correspondingly, we’ve seen more late spring and early fall rains in the northern hemisphere. Grain crops have been adversely impacted.

    As we rise to the lowered maximum of solar cycle 25, things may become more “normal.” However, when we move into the deepest period -- the minimum between cycles 25 and 26, and start the rise into solar cycle 26 -- the cloud cover will become quite dense, and our climate quite cool. The dark, cold years of 2028 through 2032, lingering for perhaps several more years, are coming.

    Coincidentally, there appears to be a correlation between significant solar minimums and increased volcanic activity. Violent eruptions put cubic miles of material up into the atmosphere. Kuwei (Sporer Minimum) and Tambora (Dalton Minimum) had darkening, chilling global impacts as their particles blocked the sun and augmented cloud formation. There were 90 eruptions in one year of the Maunder Minimum.

    These darker colder years are predicted to bring interrupted vegetation, crop failures, limited efficacy of solar power, and increased electricity demand for lighting, heating, and growing.

    What are our betters doing about this? Bill Gates is working with Harvard to shade and supercharge the cooling of the earth just before it naturally darkens and cools. Interestingly, he’s a proponent of increasing electricity demand for electric cars and lab meat.

    Michael Bloomberg has pledged $500,000,000 to close all our coal plants by 2030, just as the demand for increased power can be expected to peak and plateau for years.

    And foolish Joe, with his throng of short-sighted advisors, suspended the Keystone XL pipeline project, a blow to both the United States and Canada. In the face of the failure of “green energy” generators during a cold snap in Texas, he put forth a plan to go to 100% “carbon free” energy by 2035. The Institute for Energy has a lot to say about that. Never mind the excessive amount of carbon it would take to get and maintain us there; the mere cost of his plans will beggar us for generations.
    And for those puny human-aggrandizing science-denying numskull climate SJWs out there, I have this to say: Get a grip. Do the math.

    The sun is 865,000 miles across with a surface temperature of 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The sun’s core temperature is 27,000,000 F. Earth has a diameter of 7,900 miles and a core temperature of about 10,000 F., the same as the surface of the sun. Earth’s atmosphere is 300 miles thick and its oceans average 2.3 miles deep. There are 34.5 people per square mile of the surface of the earth. Adults run between 5 and 6 feet in height. The Sun and the Earth control the temperature, no matter what anyone says.

    The Modern Grand Solar Minimum may set us back half a degree, but by the year 2600, we’ll be 2 to 3 degrees Centigrade hotter. Better for plant growth. As is more C02 in the atmosphere (see Brian C. Joondeph’s article). Then we’ll start to cool off again, dropping about 5 degrees Centigrade before the next cycle starting around 3600.

    What can we do? Continue to bang the drum of course. The IPCC revises its figures down to a less alarming level every time it gets embarrassed by real scientists. Pray for the true believers that they’ll become enlightened before they’ve done too much damage and worn themselves out for nothing. And for those politicians and their cronies expecting life-long paydays from worthless investments, throw the rascals out. All that “infrastructure” funding would be better put to use preparing to mitigate the damage we can anticipate but not prevent.

    And for ourselves, we each can begin to live a preparedness lifestyle. Michael Devon, in a recent AT article, gave some basic suggestions. One also can find a plethora of decent advice on the internet.
    We had a little taste of shortages this past year, due to a combination of many factors at once. Food shortages are likely coming our way. Laying in a supply to get through the hardest of the dark, cold times is only prudent. Perhaps this is our Genesis 41 moment, and we have seven fat years to prepare. At the last minute, it will simply be too late. As a nation, will we also set aside commodities now to support our poorer international friends later? I would hope so.

    This author and perhaps even the researchers she quotes seem to discount the fact that we are slap dab in the middle of a Ice Age right now.
    And there is ZERO evidence that this Ice Age is coming to an end, despite the fake "consensus" of melting ice caps and warmer temps every year compared to the past.
    We are already overdue for a glaciation similar to the one we were in over 15 thousand years ago but the author seems more concerned that it will be 2 or 3 degrees hotter in 2600?
    Yes, we will almost certainly enter Maunder type minimum imminently, and we should certainly prepare for it, but the next glaciation is coming, maybe not now but relatively soon enough.
    I think that by the author's 2600AD, much less 3600, warming and CO2 will be the least of our worries with the possible exception that low CO2 is a definite threat during a full blown
    glaciation, especially as the levels seem to have been trending down with each subsequent glaciation. Low enough and they will have that "extinction" they all seem to be rooting for.
    You can thank me later

    April Snow hits Hungary, as Switzerland Registers Coldest Spell in 3-Decades: European Fruit Shortage Expected - Electroverse


    APRIL 16, 2021

    Europe’s historic April chill, which included the declaration of an “Agricultural Disaster” in France, has resulted in a looming fruit and vegetable shortage.

    As reported by, the frost episodes earlier this month have devastated French crops; as a result, the country’s Minister of Agriculture, Julien Denormandie, has said “French fruit may be scarce this summer.”

    Françoise Roch, president of the National Federation of Fruit Producers (FNPF), explains that while lows down to -2C (28.4F) can occur at this time of year (‘white frosts’), last week’s lows of -8C (17.6F) were an entirely different matter — these so-called ‘black frosts’ are incredibly rare, and utterly devastating.

    “Here, we went down to -6C (21.2F), and in some regions, down to -8C (17.6F). Such a frost is NOT usual this late in the year, and it is catastrophic,” said Roch. “In the winter, a fruit tree is resting and can withstand temperatures of -20C (-4F). But in this case, the vegetation was already advanced because February was very warm this year and the trees thought that spring had arrived already. In such conditions, the slightest cold spell destroys the harvests.”

    These ‘black frosts’ were not localized, either. According to Daniel Sauvaitre, arboriculturist and winegrower in Charente, “each region (of France) has been affected,” with many different crops suffering. From apricots and cherries, to table grapes and plums, “there will be almost nothing,” laments Roch, who adds that the Rhône valley and the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, for example, “are areas that had never seen such cold temperatures this time of year.”

    The shortage of products will naturally lead to higher prices.

    “If only 30% of the fruit can be harvested, the fruit will cost a lot more. It is normal for the producer to charge more in order to compensate for the losses and all the costs involved,” explains Roch. “But we hope that the purchasing centers and the stores will play the game so that prices do not soar too much, and that consumers will be understanding and kind enough to buy French products, even if they are a little bit more expensive.”

    The intense freeze wasn’t just confined to France though, so cheaper alternatives may not even be an option. April’s big freeze infected the majority of Europe, and it is still ongoing in many parts. As of today, April 16, England, for example, is still on for its 16th coldest April since 1659 (CET). While in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic, thousand of storks that have made the long journey from tropical Africa have arrived to find record snowfall on the ground instead of the expected warmth and blooms of spring: they have arrived at the wrong time, reports

    Thank you to each and every one of my 455 patrons — your support is keeping Electroverse running.
    I have recently been approached by an independent advertising network who say they are interested in running ads on EV. Specifically to my patrons, how many of you would accept a few adverts peppering the site; maybe a banner/content ad and two down the sidebar?

    I’m sure the ads won’t be a long term thing –as it proved before– but I wanted to put it to you before I decide (leave a comment below, and I’ll manually approve it–something I have to do due to spam). This could be a way for me and my family to earn an extra few-hundred dollars a month, to pay for our Portugal prep — including the new male goat that arrived just yesterday, who we intend to breed with our Nigerian Dwarf does for milk.

    Anyway, I’m off out to transplant 100+ eggplant plugs.

    What are you planting this weekend to prepare?

    The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

    Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

    Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

    Wow, if this prognosis is correct, we can expect to find new homes in warmer climates, pretty cheap as all the Vax takers die off.
