Are we already entering
an irreversible global cooling
Sun study evidence says yes!
David Hathaway, head of solar
physics research at NASAís
Marshall Space Flight Center in
Huntsville Ala. has spoken to the Wall Street Journal about
the weakness of solar cycle 24:
I would say it is the weakest in 200
Hathaway is one of many scientists
that are wondering why this cycle is so weak and why the polarity of
the magnetic fields on the Sun is out of sync.
Normally the magnetic fields on
the Sun flip over at the maximum of the cycle. In
cycle 24 that
hasnít happened. The north magnetic pole flipped last year, so now
technically there are two south poles on the Sun as the south hasnít
yet flipped. (source)
Hathaway and his team at
Marshall Solar Physics predict that the maximum sunspot number
for cycle 24 will be around 65 which makes it the smallest cycle
since 1906. If it drops just a tad under the predicted level then it
could indeed be the weakest for 200 years.
So why does it matter?
Well an increasing number of scientists from several different
fields have gathered enough evidence to show that conditions on the
Sun affect the climate here on Earth and that the smaller and longer
the solar cycle is then the colder it will be on Earth for the next
decade or even several decades according to some scientists.
There is evidence to back up the theory. Solar cycles have an
average length of 22 years; 11 years leading up to the maximum, and
the other 11 leading down to the minimum after which a new cycle
begins. Itís common, however, to refer to the solar cycle as lasting
on average 11 years, meaning the time taken from the start of the
cycle to the maximum of the cycle. (source)
Verified historical data shows that when
there has been a small solar cycle, cold weather follows.
periods of cold are referred to as minimums. There have been
several. Scientists know about them by tree ring analysis, which
correlates closely with the activity on the Sun, and ice core
analysis which is a good record of temperature going back many
thousands of years.
This data, coupled with direct observation
allows a relatively accurate picture to emerge.
The most common minimum we hear about is
the Maunder Minimum, a
period between 1645-1715 when much of the northern hemisphere
experienced bitterly cold winters and much cooler summers than
Just prior to the Maunder, and during the event itself,
sunspots were very few and far between and at times vanished
entirely for prolonged periods. Solar cycles remained subdued and 60
years after the Maunder Minimum
the Dalton minimum occurred.
So cold was it that this period, from 1560-1850, became known as the
Little Ice Age. Although the cute image of children skating on
the river Thames is always shown when the Little Ice Age is
mentioned, there were and are very serious implications to rivers
Commerce was affected as boats and barges couldnít move to river
ports, crops froze in the groundÖ or were washed out by torrential
summer rains and people froze to death in their homes unable to
provide sufficient heat.
All this at a time when people knew well and good how to live
without electricity. Imagine this situation today; ice storms and
snowfall bringing down power lines week after week during winter,
and this happening for years and years. Our just-in-time supply
chain ceasing to function because the computers are down.
So many millions were starving during
the Great Famine of 1300 that
Europeans resorted to cannibalism to feed their families.
The planet has not warmed since 1998.
Solar cycles 21, 22 and 23
were not particularly active - with cycle 23 being the weakest of
the three. With solar cycle 24 coming in much weaker still, at just
over half the size of cycle 23 there is cause to worry for the
Solar cycle 25, which will peak between 2022 and 2025 could
according to Hathaway be the "weakest in centuries".
does not bode well. NASA published this information in 2006
yet the public has not been warned in any way that thereís a
distinct possibility that life is going to get cold, very cold.
There has been no advice from the government to insulate/harden our
homes against the cold. No advice to stock up on food in case the
growing season is affected, nothing.
They are still pushing
warming agenda, determined to extract their green tax dollars to the
Sunspots need a certain amount of magnetic energy to form; this is
termed Gauss and the sunspots require about 1500 Gauss to form
properly. There are indications that cycle 25 may have
no sunspots at all, increasing the possibility of intense cold
for yet another two decades.
Livingston and Penn (Livingston
and Penn Data and Findings so Far) have studied this phenomenon in depth.
Livingston & Penn have observed the
magnetic field at the darkest point in every sunspot [within
their observing time window] and find that the average field has
decreased by 20% over the same time as the other effects we have
The Ďbottomí of the distribution seems to be
cut off at 1500 Gauss, below which sunspots do not seem to form.
Itís not just Livingston and Penn that
feel this way either.
Clette and Lefevre wrote their paper
The Sunspots Really Vanishing?) for the Journal of Space
Weather and Space Climate in early 2012, and
Don Easterbrooke professor emeritus at Western Washington
University also believes that rapid cooling is on the way.
There is a major climate disaster heading our way and nothing is
said. No warning is given by ANY of the governments of
countries in the Northern hemisphere.
They all know that this is a very real possibility. That the
indicators for a prolonged period of cooling are strong, yet they
sit back, getting their
carbon taxes from companies, and green
surcharges on domestic fuel bills. They push the warming agenda
to extract every last dollar that they can from the citizens they
are willing to let die and they say absolutely nothing.
IPCC serves its master
the United Nations loyally.
Both the UN
and the IPCC know that there is going to be a massive human die-off
should prolonged cooling take place. They can sit back and do
their Agenda 21 targets to be met courtesy of the
The elite will have started to make their arrangements some time
Itís no accident that the likes of
Bill Gates is a major
the seed bank in Svalbard, Norway or that groups such
as Bilderberg meet yearly to discuss the future, our future, all
unreported under the
Chatham House rule of course.
When the time does come that something has to be said it will be
downplayed to such a degree, no pun intended, that the majority
still wonít get it.
They will not see that the "degree or two of cooling" the government
talks about is enough to unbalance everything. They will not
consider that governments around the world were throwing a hissy fit
about temperature going up a couple of degrees, but going down a
couple of degrees appears to present no problems.
There is nothing we can do about global cooling.
As I have said
before: itís a cycle. It happened before man appeared on Earth, and
it will continue to happen. All we can do is prepare for it.
Whatever you have stockpiled isnít going to be enough. Grab every
piece of wood you can, it may be the piece that prevents you from
freezing to death.
We more mature types should be thinking about our physical ability.
Will we be able to chop and split wood in ten or even twenty years
This is something thatís going to impact half the planet at least,
and it isnít going to be something that lasts for weeks or months -
itís going to last years, even decades...
This is something we all need to think very seriously about, and
while we do the powers that be will be sitting back rubbing their
hands with glee at the thought of a couple of billion less useless
eaters inhabiting the planet that they really believe is theirs, and
