THE CHILL OF SOLAR MINIMUM: The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018, and the sun’s ultraviolet output has sharply dropped. New research shows that Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding.
“We see a cooling trend,” says Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center. “High above Earth’s surface near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy. If current trends continue, the upper atmosphere could soon set a Space Age record for cold.”
These results come from the SABER instrument onboard NASA’s TIMED satellite. SABER monitors infrared emissions from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances that play a key role in the energy balance of air 100 to 300 kilometers above our planet’s surface. By measuring the infrared glow of these molecules, SABER can assess the thermal state of gas at the very top of the atmosphere–a layer researchers call “the thermosphere.”
“The thermosphere always cools off during Solar Minimum. It’s one of the most important ways the 11-year solar cycle affects our planet,” explains Mlynczak, the associate principal investigator for SABER.

Look who recommended this to you in January 8, 2016…
This one should go into your BoB or INCH bag!
The only other fire that you may be able to make during the coming collapse (if any at all!!!) is the Dakota fire, because it can be made almost invisible and it is the only (other) campfire that can be fast & easily turned out, if your scout(s) is (are) telling you to put it out immediately, because potential enemy forces are approaching…
Every other campfire will draw attention to you & your family from a great distance…
…and will probably kill all of you!!!
Make no mistake about that. Remember this, please.
And even the smoke coming from the Dakote fire (shown in the video) can be still improved further by using another very simple trick.
So for the coming collapse you may add to the very well known survivalist saying “cotton kills!” another one, which is:
“SMOKE (and all visible light) KILLS!!!”
…because it will.
And no, you cannot set up a ‘normal’ Bushcraft camp in the forest during the coming collapse, because also your base camp should be as well-camouflaged & invisible as possible.
