The link between the Eddy Solar Minimum, global cooling, and the current uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
The last couple of weeks, many parts of the world have been seeing record-breaking early snowfall and cold temperatures. Parts of Canada and the Northern US even got snowfall back in September, which is very unusual.
Then, there was the 5ft of snow that landed on the Swiss alps over the last three days, the foot of snow that appeared in Morocco yesterday, and also the snow that fell in Northern England – all in October, remember.
Which is where we come to something of a cognitive dissonance crossroads for most people, because just two weeks ago, the IPCC, the UN group tasked with whipping up hysteria about man-made global warming, released a report telling us we had 12 years to prevent the world from turning into a scorched, barren desert.
Global warming is happening, don’t you know, and it’s all being caused by human emissions of CO2!
But increasingly, the weather patterns that we’re all seeing with our own eyes isn’t bearing out the ‘theory’ of anthropogenic CO2 induced global warming. Yes, the climate is definitely changing – quite radically, even. But people burning fossil fuels is not what’s doing it.
And we’re not heading into a period of global warming, rather, the exact opposite.
THE EDDY MINIMUM
I know, these are bold statements to make, so what is the science that I’m basing this on?
In a nutshell, there is a different, and far more compelling, theory for climate change, which explains that the sun’s activity is cyclical. There’s an 11 year cycle, a centennial cycle, and also a bicentennial cycle which, lasts for 206 years.
During those 206 years, the sun’s solar spot activity increases, which leads to a slow but steady warming of the atmosphere down here on planet earth. And then, the sun’s solar spot activity starts to decrease, leading to a slow but steady cooling of the atmosphere.
This waxing and waning of the sun’s activity has been scientifically observed for around 400 years, or two whole bicentennial cycles.
When the sun’s solar spots start to reduce to 50 or less a year at the peak of the 11 year solar cycle (i.e. there are only sunspots on 50 out of the 365 days of the year), this is called a Grand Solar Minimum, or solar hibernation.
The last time we reached this stage in the sun’s cycle occurred approximately 200 years ago, and it was christened The Dalton Minimum (1790-1830). During the Dalton Minimum, freak weather was occurring all over the planet, the temperature dropped off radically, there were a number of massive volcanic explosions (including Tambora) and there were also a number of catastrophically large earthquakes.
And man-made CO2 was effectively nowhere to be found.
Prior to that, the Grand Solar Minimum that occurred between 1645 and 1750 (known as The Maunder Minimum) had so few sunspots, it lead to a period of time that was christened The Little Ice Age, because the weather across the globe became so arctic and cold.
Again, a huge number of volcanoes were also erupting at that time, and there were huge earthquakes occurring all over the world, including the massive Cascadia subduction zone rift of 1700.
BENEFITS OF GLOBAL WARMING
The most recent warming part of the sun’s 206 year long cycle began around 1850. First, the planet had to recover from being in the deep-freeze of the Dalton Minimum for a few decades, and then by the early 1900s, temperatures started to rise all over the globe, vegetation started to flourish and weather patterns became much calmer and more predictable.
Just the sort of ideal conditions you need, for food to be grown in abundance and civilization to start to flourish. Which is exactly what happened. This warming trend continued up until around the year 2000, and prompted scientists to start theorizing about what was causing the ‘global warming’.
Of course, for most of these immensely intelligent brainboxes, it couldn’t be the sun that was warming the planet (or subsequently, cooling it). That would be far too simple and plebian an explanation.
And so, they came up with a new innovation called ‘man-made global warming’ a completely new theory that had no actual science to back it up, but plenty of hyperbole, and politicians eager to tap into a new way of taxing their populations.
In the meantime, just as the idea of ‘man-made global warming’ was catching on, planet earth threw Al Gore a curve ball, and stubbornly stopped heating up.
Over the last decade, the earth’s temperature has stopped rising, and since 2017, we’ve actually entered into that phase of the 206 year cycle where the sunspots decrease, and the temperature will start to drop, radically.
This latest Grand Solar Minimum has been christened The Eddy Minimum, and the coldest part of it began this year, and is set to last for another 20 years or so, until 2038.
So, there will be more snow, more cold, more frost, and it’s only going to intensify over the next two decades.
As to whether we’re going to have a relatively ‘milder’ cold snap, as occurred with the Dalton Minimum, or a much more severe and longer lasting one, leading to another ‘little ice age’, that question is currently being explored by the few (mostly retired…) honest climate scientists who are still out there.
Many of these scientists don’t live in the West, where the politicised CO2 crackpots hold sway over tenure and research budgets.
Basically, it comes down to the number of daily sunspots that will appear. If the sunspots number nearer to 50, it will be milder. If they number closer to zero (as at least one prominent Russian climate scientist believes) – it’ll be much harsher.
And we’ll have the answer to this question by 2022.
THE LINK WITH EARTHQUAKES AND VOLCANOES
In the meantime, there’s another, probably even more disturbing link between Grand Solar Minimums and our planet, and that’s the effect Grand Solar Minimums have on seismic activity and volcanic eruptions.
In his excellent book, former NASA scientist John Casey and Professor Dr Dong Choi set out the clear evidence that the US’s most devastating earthquakes over the last 200 years occurred during the time of the Dalton Minimum.
The book includes a number of scientific papers – written in plain English, as these scientists have nothing to hide and are actually trying to share their research with the public – and some frankly very disturbing findings. Like this:
And, like this:
And, like this:
Absolutely no-one took them seriously.
Because the real threat to the planet is coming from plastic drinking straws, as any fule knows.
And in the meantime, Casey et al’s predictions are literally materializing before our very eyes.
MASSIVE EARTHQUAKES IN THE US
Government agencies don’t like honest scientists like John Casey, because they like to pretend that everything is under control, and that the world is 100% in human hands. That’s also why they pooh-pooh any notion that earthquakes can be forecast – even though Casey and his colleagues have rock-solid evidence showing that massive earthquakes routinely pop up during Grand Solar Minimums.
Take the New Madrid Seismic Zone, (NMSZ) for example. Last time it ruptured between 1811-1812, with a number of ginormous earthquakes estimated to be between 7-8 in magnitude, relatively few people lived in the US.
Casey’s team found that New Madrid experienced huge earthquakes every time there has been a Grand Solar Minimum, and that it has a >80% probability of being hit by a quake in the 8 magnitude range now too, between 2017-2038.
Eight states would be directly affected by this, and tens of millions of people.
But that’s not all: the oil and gas pipes that bring energy from the West Coast to the NE of America would probably also rupture, if a quake that magnitude struck. The roads would be cracked and unpassable. And let’s not even talk about whether the nuclear facilities in the area would be able to survive a disaster of this magnitude.
And that’s just one quake, in one place, that’s not even close to San Francisco or the LA Basin.
And really, we’re not talking about just one quake happening. We’re talking about multiple massive earthquakes striking across the globe’s seismically active areas, one after another, over the next 20 years or so.
No wonder it’s so much easier to talk about man-made global warming, and to focus so much time, attention and hysteria on banning drinking straws.
Massive earthquakes and volcanoes are far more scary prospects.
But if you look around and open your eyes, you’ll see that the process of global cooling and its associated period of increased geophysical catastrophes has already begun. And there’s very little anyone can do to stop it.
