So far in 2017, the big story in space weather is sunspots–or rather, the lack thereof. The sun has been blank more than 90% of the time. Only one very tiny spot observed for a few hours on Jan. 3rd interrupted a string of spotless days from New Years through Jan.11th. Devoid of dark cores, yesterday’s sun is typical of the year so far:
The last time the sun produced a similar string of spotless days was May of 2010, almost 7 years ago. That was near the end of the previous deep Solar Minimum. The current stretch is a sign that Solar Minimum is coming again. Sunspot numbers rise and fall with an ~11-year period, slowly oscillating between Solar Max and Solar Min. In 2017, the pendulum is swinging toward the bottom.
“Food shortages of a general nature are on the horizon for us all, which means initially higher prices, followed by actual shortfall.
The shortfall will be compounded by the monoculture mentality of genetically modified and thus tainted produce like corn, soy, oilseed rape, sunflower, maize, and now alfalfa, which are not designed to meet the needs of the human population.
Natural, seasonal vegetables are essential for our wellbeing, but space for these is constantly being challenged by the profit/greed motive of BigAgri. In addition, home grown seasonal has been overtaken by the ‘globalised’ culture where much of the northern hemisphere produce is uneconomically produced overseas for minimum wage then transported by ships and airplanes over vast distances.
As that despicable apology for a human, Henry Kissinger’s mantra says….”
UAH global temperatures have dropped the 2nd most since the satellite era began. The Sun continues to stay sun spotless for its 9th day, which is years ahead of the norm. Massive dust storms bellow off west Africa all the way to Europe. New reports link our Sun to Earths climate, but IPCC says they dont’ care.
“The sun is as blank as a billiard ball,” says geologist David Archibald.
“The latest image from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows our sun as a blank canvas,” says Archibald, an avowed global warming skeptic . “No sunspots. Solar cycle 24 activity continues to be lowest in nearly 200 years.”
Among the top science news stories of 2015, dramatic affirmations of the electromagnetic connection between the Earth and the Sun have been demonstrated. With each new discovery, the Sun’s profound influence on Earth’s climate and weather becomes more self-evident. However, it seems that the electrical nature of the Earth/Sun connection, and its role in so-called climate change, remains nowhere to be found in the popular climate change debate. Today, we check in on one of the leading skeptics of the theory of man-made climate change, solar physicist and meteorologist Piers Corbyn.
