Thirty years ago, NASA scientist James Hansen told the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources that he had a “high degree of confidence” that Earth would be significantly warmer by 2018. It isn’t. And in that regard, what just happened over the past two years is especially interesting: global average temperatures dropped 0.56 C degrees—the most dramatic cooling event of the last century!
[Incidentally, “high degree of confidence” was the same phrase government operatives used to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq to seize alleged weapons of mass destruction.]
Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” and “hockey stick” sham creations were then seized upon by globalists—who proposed to attack “global warming” with $90 trillion in new tax revenues on manmade carbon emissions and cow farts. Against the wave of contrary evidence, old Al is still trying to convince us that we need to roll over for government taxing authorities to fix the weather.
Cooler heads thankfully prevailed in the U.S., but not in Canada—which hit Canadian households with up to $1000 per year each in “carbon taxes.” (However, $1000 was obviously not enough because Canada has just been hit by record snowfall…) And oh golly, new taxes must also be needed in Italy and Africa!
Yes, some high temperatures were recorded this past summer but in most parts of the U.S. temperatures were lower than those recorded before 1940. And in East Antarctica, researchers measured the lowest (-89.2 C) air temperature ever recorded on the Earth’s surface.
So, what’s REALLY happening? Solar activity has always been the primary driver of Earth’s climate, with volcanic activity in second place. One measure of the Sun’s affect on our planet is the number of sunspots that appear on its surface. This year through November the number of days with no sunspots totaled 197, meaning that the Sun’s surface has been blank 59% of the time.
Solar cycles record the increase and decrease in sunspots over an average cycle of 11 years. The current cycle (Solar Cycle 24) is likely to record 70% or more spotless days in 2019, as it approaches its 2020-21 end.
But look closer at the graph: it shows a radical decrease in sunspot frequency and solar activity—with SC 24 being the weakest cycle in 100 years. There is a lot more to understand here, but the important point is that the Sun’s influence on Earth is weakening.
Where might our weather be heading? Weakened solar magnetic fields translate into reduced cloud cover and lower temperatures. Martin Armstrong’s Socrates program is predicting that along with continued record summer temperatures above 100 F, we are headed for bitterly cold winters. The program is also calling for “perhaps one of the deepest Solar Minima in thousands of years.”
NASA’s Langley Research Center relies on an instrument aboard a NASA satellite to measure energy in our atmosphere. Scientist Martin Mlynczak conceded that “high above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy.” Although that’s a normal process as we approach solar minimum, “if current trends continue we are likely to see a Space Age record for cold.”
Futurist John Petersen recorded a compelling detailed explanation for an unfolding freeze in Climate Change Truth, a free 1.5 hour video. He noted that we currently have the “quietest Sun since the Dalton Minimum, 190 years ago.” At 1:19:00 in the presentation, John summarizes his findings.
That’s not all: since fewer clouds mean less rain, we should also expect decreasing rainfall … and increased drought. We are already seeing drought—which can bring crop failures—in numerous places, including Russia, Australia and Las Vegas. In the 1950’s, drought resulted in 244 of 254 Texas counties being declared federal disaster areas. If famine results, millions could die due to failure to prepare.
Integrating the worldwide rise in volcanic activity (including UNDER the ice caps at both the North and South Poles) into the picture, plus the fact that Earth’s magnetic field has been losing about 5% of its strength every decade—and a new ice age or even a pole shift is not out of the question. In the end, climate change is the product of changes in the energy output of the sun, the wobble of the earth and the amount of volcanic activity. The evidence is compelling.
I suggest monitoring temperatures closely this winter and if it DOES become noticeably colder, beginning serious preparation—setting up a greenhouse, for example. If temperatures up north plunge as much as some are predicting, we’re going to see net U.S. migration from north to south … and we may even have to send our military to the northern border to keep out the Canadians!
