    The Coming Modern Grand Solar Minimum

    By Anony Mee

    I wrote last week about the coming Grand Solar Minimum, something that will have much more impact on the environment than anything we puny humans can do. It generated a lot of interest from all sides, so it’s time to delve deeper into what we can expect.

    Starting with the hype: During the last grand solar minimum (GSM), the Maunder Minimum of 1645 to 1715, glaciers advanced, rivers froze, sea ice expanded -- in short, the Little Ice Age. Is another one is almost upon us?

    Probably not. Maunder occurred at the tail end of a bi-millennial cycle. These cycles range between 2,000 and 2,600 years in length and see the Earth first warm, then cool. Gradual cooling had been going on for hundreds of years. Maunder just capped it off. Today we are a few hundred years into the warming phase of the subsequent bi-millennial cycle. Different starting conditions yield different paths.

    The progressives say that we’re so deep into anthropogenically accelerated climate change (AACC) that there’s almost no time left to turn things around. If we don’t act now, it will be too late.

    Nope, sorry squad members. What we can predict, instead, is an overall temperature reduction of 1 degree Centigrade by the end of the GSM. Afterward, natural warming at the rate of around 0.5 C. every hundred years will continue for the next 600 years or so.

    That gives us a good 35 to 50 years to hone the science and come up with the best ways to mitigate the impact of unstoppable global warming on humankind; until, that is, it naturally reverses. See suggestions below for better uses of funding currently earmarked to address the “climate crisis.”

    Reasonably speaking: We’ve been warming, so the cooling of the GSM will just even us out for a while. Therefore, nothing to worry about, right?

    Well, not quite. There are a few worries. Plants grow in response to warmth, moisture, nutrients, and most importantly sunlight. Even if the temperature does not plunge to glacial depths, some cooling will take place and clouds are expected to grow denser and cover much of the earth’s surface as this GSM bottoms out. If normally-correlating volcanism takes place, the additional material in the atmosphere will further darken the globe and provide even more opportunity for condensation and cloud formation.

    Last year, Dr. Valentina Zharkova wrote “This global cooling during the upcoming grand solar minimum…would require inter-government efforts to tackle problems with heat and food supplies for the whole population of the Earth” (not to mention their livestock).

    The pessimists ask, what else can go wrong? Well, cooling will increase the demand for heat, darker days will increase the demand for light, and unfavorable outside conditions will increase the demand for power for enclosed food production. With more power needed, the amount we currently rely on from solar installations will decrease as cloud cover limits their efficacy.



    A decrease in solar ultraviolet radiation can be expected to slow the formation of ozone in the atmosphere, a lack of which tends to destabilize the jet stream, causing wilder weather. Wind generators turn off when the wind is excessively strong. As we now know, they are not immune from freezing in place. In the face of a greater demand for power, we will generate less.

    Even worse is this: Historically, GSMs have been associated with extreme weather events. Floods, droughts, heavy snowfall, late springs, and early autumns have all resulted in famine. Famine during GSMs has led to starvation and societal upheaval. No one wants the former, and I think we’ve seen enough of the latter this past year or so to do for our lifetimes.

    We’re about 16 months into this GSM, with 32 more years to go. Already 2019 and 2020 saw record low numbers of sunspots. We’ve had lower than expected crop harvests due to unseasonable rains both years. The April 2021 USDA World Agricultural Product report has articles detailing Taiwan’s expected 20% decrease in rice production this year over last, Cuba’s rice production 15% below its five-year average, Argentina's corn, Australia's cotton, Malaysia's palm oil -- all down, all due primarily to the weather. There are some expected bumper crops, all based on expanded acreage.

    We’ve got seven years until we hit the trough. There’s no time to lose. Fortunately, We the People are amazing. We’re strong, courageous, resilient, smart, well-educated, and clever. We are capable of coming together for a common cause and working well together regardless of politics and other differences. We must pull together to make sure we all survive the coming tumult. Here’s what we do.

    On the federal level, take the brakes off energy production. No more talk of closing power plants, especially coal-fired ones, or of removing hydroelectric dams. Reinstate the Keystone XL pipeline; we’re going to need that fuel available to us when the predictable contraction of the global fuel market occurs. Extend the tax credits for those who install solar power. Production may not be optimal during the GSM, but as much as can occur will take a load off commercial energy.

    At the United Nations, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield should prioritize preparations for the coming dark, cold years. It is in the world’s best interest that all nations cease aggressions, even if just for a decade or so, so that we all may turn our resources to securing the lives of our peoples.

    The USDA should not just take the brakes off agricultural production; it should encourage all producers to ramp it up. We need to have enough on hand to address the expected shortfall between production and requirement for at least five years. All loans to all farmers should be forgiven if they will agree to get on board with maximizing production. Garden seed producers, along with all other producers and processors, should be given significant tax credits for ramping up their production too.

    Commerce should support vastly expanded food processing for long-term storage. Congress should fund the acquisition and storage of surplus staples and other food commodities so that sufficient amounts are on hand to keep our markets, feeding programs, and food banks operating when crop after crop begins to fail. Stockpiling for our future should take precedence over exports.

    The NSC should demand a reconstitution of our strategic grain reserve, and that we prepare not just for ourselves, but to be able to share with needy neighbors and allies to keep America secure.

    State, local, and tribal governments should clear away barriers to gardening and small animal production, including not limiting water catchment for gardening. Everything folks can do for themselves will take pressure off public services and limited markets. Local Emergency Services operations should also look at acquiring stocks of staples to help support their residents, as was done in many places last year.

    Individuals, as well as schools and other institutions, should begin to garden, even if it’s just pots in a window. It’s a skill that takes time to learn and practice. Everyone should begin to preserve food for the hard times coming – freezing, canning, drying, smoking, pickling. As much as we can do for ourselves, we won’t be looking for someone else to have done for us.

    This is really most important. We need to act now while food production is still relatively normal. Later on, if there’s nothing to buy, it won’t matter how much money we have on hand, as individuals or as a nation.

    Anony Mee is a retired public servant and wants to see us all get through this in one piece.

    The new solar cycle bares its teeth: Powerful solar flare jams radio signals over the Pacific Ocean


    (Natural News) The sun unleashed a powerful solar flare after one of its sunspots erupted late Monday, April 19. It released a pulse of X-rays and ultraviolet rays toward Earth, ionizing the top of the atmosphere and causing a shortwave radio blackout over the Pacific Ocean. Mariners and ham radio operators in the area might have noticed … [Read More...]

    On the "Minor-to-moderate (cme) inbound: Impact on april 25 " These small ones could be monsters !


    Additionally, given the weakened state of our ever-waning magnetosphere (due to the ever-intensifying pole shift/magnetic excursion), even a minor-to-moderate impact –such as is forecast here– could produce some noticeable perturbations to communications, satellites and even the electrical grid on the ground.

    Midwest and Eastern Vineyards Hit by Historic Snow and Freeze Events - Electroverse

    MIDWEST AND EASTERN VINEYARDS HIT BY HISTORIC SNOW AND FREEZE EVENTS

    APRIL 27, 2021 CAP ALLON
    North America’s deadly February freeze has been followed by a brutal late-April Arctic blast. The result has been millions of dollars worth of damage to key growing regions up and down the U.S., not least the nation’s vineyards.



    Last week, a severe frost event delivered thousands of record-breaking low temperatures to the majority of the CONUS; and as a result, vineyards from North Texas and the High Plains to Missouri, from Michigan to New York and Pennsylvania have ALL suffered substantial losses.


    Over the Past 7 Days, Thousands of Low Temperature Records Fell Across the United States
    Hardest hit were those vineyards in Missouri and Ohio, reports winebusiness.com.
    According to Dr. Dean Volenberg, director of the Grape and Wine Institute at the University of Missouri, there was widespread damage because many of the grapes were ‘post bud swell,’ and there were not one, but two nights in a row of record-breaking freezing weather.

    One grower north of Columbia told Volenberg that his Marechal Foch was post bud break and temperatures had dropped to 24F (-4.4C). Another grower in Macon County reported a historic April low of 21F (-6.1C). Needless to say, buds that have ‘broken’ (awoken from their winter dormancy) cannot survive such extremely low temps.


    Gene Sigel, vineyard manager at Debonné Vineyards in Madison, Ohio, told Wine Business Monthly that NE Ohio received as much as foot of snow on Tuesday April 20, adding that nighttime temperatures plunged to 28F (-2.2C). “Many vineyards [in the region] have wind machines, but we’re not prepared to use them when there’s snow on the ground,” said Sigel. “It was really atypical to have that much snow and be cold so long. Buds froze solid — they crumble in your fingers.”
    Worryingly, the prevalence of these late-season freezes appears to be increasing.
    North American growers suffered a similarly severe frost event around the same time last year, on April 18, 2020. Volenberg noted that growers, especially at the larger wineries, left 30% more buds than normal when pruning this year because of the low production after last year’s freeze.
    These record low temperatures are proving a serious setback to the likes of peach and cherry orchards, too — these trees are in full bloom at this time of year, and it doesn’t take much to ruin an entire year’s harvest.


    Growers up and down the United States are keeping their fingers crossed that the worst of the freeze is over.
    Steve Shepard, winemaker and general manager of RayLen Vineyards and Winery in Mocksville, North Carolina, is hoping his region doesn’t get another frost in April, adding that by May 1, “We’re 95 percent out of the woods.”
    We’ll see Shepard — mid-range models aren’t looking too favorable, mixed at best. They’re currently showing a strong possibility of further polar outbreaks into the second week of May, particularly for northern, central and eastern regions:


    There are agendas at play here.
    Heat is a business, and even the mere forecasting of above average temperatures is enough to keep the global warming narrative alive — the lie is preserved, the damage is done, regardless of what the reality actually delivers.
    “Some growers will get lucky,” concluded Volenberg regarding last week’s record-breaking freeze, but for many, “there will be widespread damage.”

    It is more than just GSM, this time:
