Ice Age is not scary, because we have the power to render its consequences to have no effect on our living. Nor is this power and its principles a secret. This video presentation introduces no thing new. No esoteric magic is involved in understanding the Ice Age dynamics and our power to respond to them in a manner that enriches our world and our living in it. The facts that this video presents are known scientific facts that are discernable by everyone. No exotic theories are involved. The truth is knowable and widely known. However, there is a need to draw the facts together, which together present an amazing challenge. The challenge may seen scary for its magnitude, but is isn't, because we can meet and master the challenge, and do it with Joy.
The present world is scary. The present world is unsurvivable in the long run. Nuclear war is unsurvivable. The engines for our doom stood precariously close for 70 years, and they getting more sophisticated and dangerous. For 70 years we have struggled to eliminate this danger, and have failed. We are no closer to a solution today than we were when we started.
The Ice Age, in comparison, should we take up the challenge, offers peace, joy, security, and riches beyond dreams.
The Ice Age becomes scary only when we deny it and refuse its challenges. Then it becomes our doom, and more certainly so than nuclear war.
But why should we deny the Ice Age before us, and thereby deny ourselves.
We are the supreme being on this planet, with the capacity to scientifically understand our world, and to create ourselves a future by letting its needs determine the present.
It actually isn't hard to do this. It begins with asking us:
Who are we?
Where are we?
Where do we want to be?
What must we do to get there?
What would inspire us to take the necessary steps?
The question, where are we in time and space, isn't a hard one to answer.
We live in a galaxy that is presently at its weakest state in 440 million years. Our solar system is a part of this extremely weak galaxy.
Our Sun is one of the galaxy's 400 billion stars. The climate on Earth, as one of the Sun's planets, is determined by all of these factors acting together, from the galactic, to the solar, to the planetary system.
We live in a climate that is itself an anomaly. The anomaly is ending. We are about to get back to our 'normal' climate.
The Earth's normal climate for 85% of the last 2 million years, has been harsh and cold. We call it the glaciation climate. We call the period of glaciation, the Ice Age. The next Ice Age, which defines our normal climate, will likely start in the 2050s, under a 70% colder Sun.
I have produced numerous videos with explorations of the dynamics that lead to threshold conditions in the solar process, beyond which the electromagnetic primer fields can no longer be maintained that presently energize the Sun in its high-powered mode. I have explored in these videos what it means when the Sun reverts back to its normal, low-powered mode, with 70% less energy being radiated, from which an Ice Age results, with such a deep global cooling that all regions outside the tropics become rapidly uninhabitable.
I have proposed in those videos that we really have no option for our continued living on the Earth, except to relocate ourselves into the tropics before the next Ice Age begins. I proposed further that the lack of suitable land in the tropics would force us to relocate ourselves, together with our agriculture, afloat onto the equatorial sees, between the hurricane zones. I proposed that this would involve a whole new agricultural revolution, and a powerful new industrial revolution with a productive power that supersedes everything that has been accomplished in the past. I proposed that we would build 6,000 new cities for a million people each, for the relocation project, and that these can be produced so efficiently in high-temperature automated industrial processes that they can be provided for one-another for free as an investment by society into itself.
The typical response that I have received on this line, was, that this will never happen. "It just won't happen."
I would like to propose that all this will happen indeed, an that the great project will be carried out with joy for the sheer fun of us building ourselves a new world.
I would like to propose that the building will begin soon, because the floating infrastructures will be needed long before the next Ice Age begins. They will be needed to protect our food supply and our cities from flooding, droughts, earthquakes, and also from hurricanes, all of which promise to become massively increased and more devastating in the years ahead because of our rapidly diminishing Sun and the resulting consequences.
Floating agriculture and cities cannot be flooded by the worst rainfall, nor can earthquakes affect them, or the hurricanes reach them. Hurricanes are not possible near the equator for roughly 500 km on either side.
For all of these reasons the massive floating infrastructures will be built. They will be built, because all of these so-called 'natural' catastrophes are in the process of becoming ever larger and evermore devastating in the years ahead, with no end in sight till the next Ice Age begins, which then adds its own dimension of challenges.
This video presented here, is designed to focus on the cosmic connection that is underlying the big flooding events, earthquake events, and hurricane events, and their rapidly increasing severity, for which the floating infrastructures will be built without fail, even while their absolute necessity for the Next Ice Age still lays ahead of us by about 30 years, at which time the current interglacial warm holiday ends and a new era begins.
Everything that we have known and experienced as our climate on Earth, is presently collapsing towards the point of phase shift that changes everything. The start of the Next Ice Age results from a phase shift in the solar system. When this takes place, our entire world becomes radically transformed. The world then reverts back to the normal deep-cold shown here in blue.
The collapse towards the all-changing phase shift has been going on gradually for the last 3,500 years. The long drawn-out collapse has been physically measured in ice core samples from the Greenland ice sheet.
More of the fine details for the last thousand years, came to light through measurements of Carbon-14 ratios, gleamed from samples from these times. The Carbon-14 ratios stand as proxy, with which we are able to measure the solar activity at the time the sample was created. The measurements prove that the gradual climate collapse that occurred during this period, including that of the Little Ice Age from the 1300's till the end of the Maunder Minimum, was the direct result of the diminishing strength of solar activity.
When the Sun is weaker, the plasma corona surrounding it is weaker likewise, which enables larger volumes of cosmic-ray flux to escape the solar environment and impact the Earth.
That's what the Carbon-14 ratios measure. The measured ratio is inversely presented on the graph to match the corresponding climate effect.
Another proxy that stands for solar activity, is found in Berillium-10 ratios. Berillium-10 is likewise a radioactive isotope that is exclusively produced by cosmic-ray interaction with the atmosphere. Again, the ratio is inversely plotted, because high cosmic-ray volumes cause cold climates on Earth.
It is interesting to note that the measured Berillium-10 ratios, which fluctuate with the solar cycles, indicate that the solar cycles did continue during the weakest phase of the Sun during the Little Ice Age when no sunspots had occurred for a few decades, which normally reflect the strength of solar cycles.
The Carbon-14 measurements tell us that at the time of the Little Ice Age in the 1600s, when the solar activity was the weakest and the climate the coldest, the cosmic-ray volume had been the largest ever recorded.
The measured ratio also tells us that in the 1700s, a cosmic event occurred that had reversed the historic weakening of the Sun, and ramped the Sun back up again. The up-ramping of the Sun gave us 300 years of solar-caused global warming that ended in the 1960s when the solar activity began to collapse again.
As I had noted in previous videos, according to the historically recorded sunspot numbers, the 300-years global warming period had peaked in the 1960s and began to collapse sharply thereafter.
When one looks more closely, it becomes apparent that the turn-around wasn't clean and linear. The Sun became dramatically weaker in the 1970s, according to the sunspot numbers, then recovered slightly in the 1980s and 90s, and collapsed steeply thereafter, which still continues.
On the chart presented here, the solar diminishment is measured in diminishing sunspot numbers. The diminishing numbers typically stand as a broad overview proxy for diminishing solar activity.
Unfortunately, the sunspot numbers remained as our only proxy for solar activity from the 1950s on, when the Carbon-14 values became irrelevant by the effect of the nuclear bombing and bomb testing, which also produce Carbon-14.
As I had also noted in previous videos, the diminishing solar activity, which is reflected in diminishing sunspot numbers from the 1960s on, has resulted in colder climates on Earth. This too, became eventually measurable. It was measured in the form of diminishing average annual soil temperature that began to drop off from 1997 on.
The soil temperature measurements were conducted by the Solar Terrestrial Institute in Irkutsk in southern Siberia. The colder Earth, in this case, didn't result from the Sun being colder, but resulted from increased solar cosmic-ray flux that increased cloudiness.
As I had pointed out previously, that a colder Earth results as a consequence of increased solar cosmic-ray flux, because the cosmic-ray ionization of the atmosphere boosts the cloud forming process up to 100-fold. The consequence is, that the increased cloudiness reflects a greater portion of the sunlight that would be received on Earth, back into space. The increasing loss is felt in the form of the Earth getting colder.
The effect that cosmic-ray flux has on cloud nucleation is no longer a mere theory. It has been proved as an undeniable fact in laboratory experiments in Europe.
At the CERN lab, in the CLOUD experiment series, a large test chamber was filled with water vapor.
The natural nucleation rate was measured, which was expected to be minuscule.
Then the normal enhancements factors were added, such as an electric potential. A significant increase in the nucleation rate was obtained. This was also expected.
After that, artificial cosmic rays were injected into the test chamber from a particle accelerator. The result was amazing. The measured increase went straight up and off the chart. This too, is what one would expect as the verification of the theorized 100-fold increase in cloud nucleation that solar cosmic-ray flux can achieve.
With its CLOUD experiment series, the CERN lab proves in principle that all climate changes on Earth are the direct effect of cosmic changes.
Variable cloudiness, driven by the largely variable solar cosmic-ray flux, is the self-evidently big variable factor that causes all climate changes on Earth, second to none. The cosmic effects are huge effects.
With the Sun being the originator of the climate on Earth, the factors that vary its effect on the Earth, render ALL Climate Changes to be exclusively Cosmic Climate Changes, not Manmade Climate Changes.
The key factor that drives the climate changes, is, in every case, is the cosmic factor that varies the volume of solar cosmic-ray flux. Its ionizing effect that increases water vapor nucleation for enhanced the cloud condensation is a secondary effect. The primary cause is always cosmic in nature. It is a cause that is affecting the Sun. This cosmic factors is big. We have no way of affecting them. It would be wonderful if we had this capability.
Ironically, the increased cosmic-ray flux also causes increased drought conditions. Faster cloud nucleation causes the clouds to rain out faster, which reduces their water transport distance.
The California drought may be the result of the shorter water transport distance, with the precipitation flowing from East to West.
And at times, when the solar cosmic-ray flux is exceptionally strong, the more intense cloud nucleation also causes sudden flash-floods and torrential rainfall, especially in areas where the conditions are favorable for cloudiness to begin with.
We see more of both types of flooding now happening as the Sun is rapidly getting weaker. We see more flooding events occurring all over the world, from the mid-1950s on, with higher water levels during the floods.
The larger cosmic-ray values that we would see reflected again from the 1960s on, in larger Carbon-14 ratios if these could be correctly measured, results from the Sun getting weaker again from this time onward. The increasing cosmic-ray flux would necessarily result in increased rainfall and floods of the type that we see already happening again.
But what about rainfall and floods in historic times? We have large C-14 ratios measured in samples from historic times. These high ratios were produced by correspondingly large volumes of solar cosmic-ray flux. Shouldn't large flooding events been occurring in these times?
Historic flood records indicate that large floods had indeed happened in exactly those times, and of the relative magnitude that one would expect to see.
In a town in Germany, located on the Danube River, some of the historic flood levels were inscribed on a wall. The inscription notes some of the highlights of the 500 years period from 1501 on that takes us back in time, deep into the Little Ice Age.
According to the inscribed marks, the Little Ice Age period ranks the highest among the high flood-levels, with the flood levels thereafter getting progressively lower in the 1800s, which had been the time when the Sun was getting stronger again during the solar-warming period,. According to the inscription, the 1920 flood level ranks the lowest, as one would expect.
Only the year 1954 doesn't fit the trend. The Sun was strong in 1954, according to the sunspot numbers. We should not have had high flood water levels in this timeframe.
In fact, the sunspot numbers were still increasing in 1954, towards the peak in the 1960s. We shouldn't have seen the high flood level occurring in 1954, for which large volumes of cosmic-ray flux are required.
This tells us that something big and unusual had happened on the Sun at this time.
When one plots the inscribed high-flood levels, the decline in flood levels to the 1920 is well within the range of what one would expect as the result of the up-ramping of the Sun from the Little Ice Age onward. One would also expect the 2002 level to be higher than the one in 1920, since the Sun was weaker again in 2002. But the hugely high level in 1954, simply doesn't fit the historic correlative.
Something very big must have happened.
The big cause may have been the reversal of the solar dynamics that ended the nearly 300-years up-ramping of the Sun, and had started the now ongoing collapse phase in solar activity.
When such big events happen, to something as big as the Sun, large shocks typically happen. Shocks tend to be of short duration, whereby they don't show up in the sunspot number records.
The year 1954 may have been that year of the big shocks that started the eventual big turn-around in solar activity.
That something big happened in this timeframe is indicated in the Berillium-10 measurements. Note that a deep down-spike occurred during the valley between the highest sunspot cycle of the 1960s, and the one before. The blue down-spike represents a corresponding up-spike in solar cosmic-ray flux.
It becomes interesting when one correlates the recorded high-flood levels with the Berillium-10 measurements.
For each of the dates inscribed on the wall in Passau, a corresponding down-spike occurred that represents high rates of cosmic-ray flux and with it, high rates of cloud nucleation.
The only inscription that is missing on the wall at Passau, is an entry for the late 1600s, when the cosmic-rays spikes were the largest.
The extreme situation may have developed into droughts instead of floods.
According to modern research conducted in the USA, six significant periods of drought had occurred in the United States Northeast in the 1600s, including a mega-drought that had lasted for two decades.
Of course, now that the Sun is getting weaker again, the historic rates of flooding resumed. The effect is felt both in Europe, as is shown here, and also half-way around the world in the USA, like the flooding in 2011 that had inundated neighborhoods in New England and the mid-Atlantic states in places that had remained above water ever since they had been built. That's a part of the face of the climate reversal that began in the 1960s, with the first shocks being felt in 1954.
It makes sense that the first shocks would have occurred during the valley portion of the solar cycles, prior to the actual turn-around of the climate from the 1960s on.
In this case of the 1954 shock, the shock occurred in the valley between the solar cycles 18 and 19. All the big climate events have occurred almost exclusively during the valleys between solar cycles, which are periods of low solar activity but periods of high cosmic-ray flux.
For purposes of identification, I began to label the valleys, as Cygni Valleys, with a refernce to the solar-cycle numbers on either side of them.
I call them Cygni Valleys in honor of the star N. M. L. Cygni, a hyper-giant star that is the second-largest star known to us. The star is so large that it outshines our Sun 272,000-fold.
The star is 1,183-times larger than our Sun and has 20-50 times its mass contained in 1.65 billion times its volume.
But in spite of its enormous size and luminosity, the star Cygni is a star that no one has ever actually seen. It is hidden behind a nebula of its own creation, where it has been detected by its effects with the aid of science, and has even been measured with advanced instrumentation.
The discovery of the star was so significant in astronomy, perhaps for its illusive nature, that the initials of its discoverers, Neugebauer, Martz, and Leighton, became attached to the name of the star.
Historically the giant start N.M.L. Cygni was not discovered until 1965, which was the very year in which the equally big, solar collapse, took another leap forward.
I see the Cygni valleys in solar activity, between solar cycles, as illusive, unprotected valleys of peak solar cosmic-ray flux, which no one can actually see directly either, but which can be recognized by their effects. The Cygni Valley events have an illusive quality that is similar to that of the giant star, Cygni. That's what brings the name, Cygni, into the context.
Cosmic rays are invisible, but they can be discerned by their effects. They can even be measured in proxy in the form of Carbon-14 ratios, and Berillium-10 ratios, and in other related phenomena.
Cosmic rays come in a wide range of flavors. According to a study, solar cosmic-rays occur up to a thousand events per square meter per second, while galactic cosmic rays occur on average at a rate of only one event per square meter per year, but of vastly higher energy per particle. And extra-galactic events occur a million times fewer although with ultra-high energies.
The extremely high rates, at which the solar cosmic-ray events are occurring, make these the chief candidates for cosmic-forced climate effects on Earth.
In this context the 1954 event, that occurred within the Cygni Valley 18 to 19, can be recognized as a major solar cosmic event, by which the year 1954 became a turbulent year around the world in terms of flooding events.
In the decade from 1954 onward the world was also enormously changed in yet another context. The age of the grand solar minima appears to have irreversibly ended in this timeframe.
We saw the Wolf Solar Minimum in the 1300s, the Spoerer Minimum in the 1500s, and the Maunder Minimum in the 1600s. These minima where periods of low solar activity that the Sun recovered from. In these cases the term 'minimum' applied, because a recovery happened. This is also what makes the continued use of the term 'minimum' in the solar context DANGEROUSLY erroneous.
One hears much talk about the 'Next Grand Minimum' to be happening in the near future. The danger with this concept is that it implies that no matter how bad things may get, there will be a recovery happening thereafter, so that we can get by, by simply weathering the storm. That's a dangerous deception, because there will be no recovery happening. No further recovery is possible. The line has been crossed. For us to be able to survive, we need to take steps to avoid the consequences. Nothing will spare us from that. If we don't respond we will not survive. That's what makes the continued use of the term, 'minimum' dangerous, because there will be no recovery as the term replies, not this time.
From the time the solar collapse phase began, from 1954 onward, the term 'minimum' no longer applies in the solar context. The solar system is now in its final collapse process towards the ultimate phase shift in the 2050s that starts the next full Ice Age. The age of the historic recoveries is over. The age of the grand collapse has begun.
The dynamics have diminished too much for the recovery of the Sun to be possible, at least not for the next 100,000 years. The background in solar strength has diminished too far for a reversal to happen before the threshold level is crossed at which the phase shift to the next Ice Age occurs.
The 1954 Historic Disaster Events
February - Lismore (Australia) flooding event
May - Laredo (Texas, USA) flooding event
June - Hurricane Alice (Atlantic basin - Texas)
June (to September) - Yangtze River (China) flooding
July - Danube (Europe) flooding event
October - Hurricane Hazel (Haiti to Canada)
The big solar turn-around year, 1954, started with a shock, though not a giant shock. It started it with the Laredo flooding in Texas in May.
The Laredo flooding was followed by an extremely large 4-month flooding of the Yangtze river in China, and by Hurricane Hazel ravishing Canada.
1954 was also the year of the historic cyclone disaster in Australia, with the flooding there of the city Lismore.
And in between all that, on July 10, the already noted 1954 Danube River flooding event happened in Europe.
In the same year too, just prior to the Danube flooding, in late June, Hurricane Alice had swept across Mexico into Texas, with 110 mph winds, and Hurricane Hazel had swept far into the North, as far as Toronto in Canada.
Hurricane Alice had dumped another 20 inches of rain in 12 hours onto the already flooded Laredo region, leaving a hundred people dead in its wake.
Yes, some big events had happened on the Sun in the year 1954 that caused these effects, which also set the stage for evermore of the same to come, which has indeed happened.
Actually, the case of the hurricanes is somewhat less significant. Every year is hurricane season. Sometimes as many as 15 hurricanes occur in the Atlantic region in a single year, with up to seven of these in the high categories. Typically the numbers are lower than that, except for the years 1954 and 1955, which stand out against the background, with two of the most costly and deadly hurricanes of the decade occurring in these years.
In Haiti, Hurricane Hazel had destroyed 40% of the coffee trees and 50% of the cacao crop. Then it traveled northward 1,090 km over land till it stalled over the Greater Toronto Area in Canada where it caused flooding and other major damages. No one in Canada had been prepared, back in 1954, for having to deal with a tropical storm, much less a major one.
These are a few examples of the effects that can be caused by large solar cosmic-ray events of the type that have heralded the big solar reversal towards the now-ongoing solar collapse process.
We are not facing another minimum, or even a Grand Minimum. We are in an already ongoing 'Grand Solar Collapse' process towards the 100,000-years 'Super Ice Age' like the one we had in the past, that will be starting anew in the 2050s, which we cannot avoid. Only after the long deep Ice Age, 100,000 years from now, will the Sun recover again to give us the kind of climate that we enjoy presently, and should enjoy while it lasts.
Unfortunately we have no way of knowing what specifically had happened on the Sun that had made the year 1954 so special in terms of cosmic-forced natural disasters.
The technology didn't exist at the time that gives us measurable data for these types of events. The year 1954 preceded the space age and its amazing capabilities that we now have.
We are now able to look at the Sun from space and observe it in wavelengths of light that the eye cannot see, and we get updates many times per hour, day after day.
We can see the slightest changes now that in earlier times we hadn't imagined to be possible.
It may well be that 1954 was the year when the 300-years solar up-ramping ended, instead of the 1960s as the sunspot numbers indicate. In this case, when a large cosmic transformation takes place, such as from the solar up-ramping into solar collapse, big effects on Earth would logically result from big events on the Sun, as in the case shown here when a coronal hole extended across nearly the entire face of the Sun.
The 1954 events were evidently big enough to qualify as the outcome of big solar fluctuations. During the great transition period in the solar system major dynamic shocks may have rippled through the system on a scale that we will never know about.
The technologies for this knowledge certainly didn't exist at the time when the Danube river flooded out of step with the historic pattern. It took us many years to discover a firm measurement that proved with absolute measures that the Sun was getting weaker after the 1960s, as the sunspot numbers suggest it does, and the soil temperature measurements in Irkutsk indicate.
The missing measurement that proves that the Sun was rapidly weakening after the 1960s, was provided by the Ulysses satellite that began orbiting the Sun in a polar orbit in 1994. It saw the solar-wind pressure diminishing, and the solar magnetic field diminishing, and cosmic-ray levels increasing. When the mission terminated in 2008, the measurements it had provided, gave us a clear direction of where we are heading, and how much time we may have remaining before the phase shift to the next Ice Age happens.
Since the dawn of the space age, we now have the capability to observe the Sun in a manner that has never been possible before, which of course confirms the rate of change that the Ulysses mission had seen the beginning of.
The image of the Sun that is shown here was observed by the SOHO satellite on October 11, 2015, seven years after the Ulysses satellite had measured the Sun's rate of diminishing. Also, what we see here on the Sun has had its corresponding effects on Earth.
In early October in 2015, the "one in a thousand years" heavy rain had occurred in the Carolinas in the USA, that had caused a large flooding event of historic dimensions.
What we see here on the face of the Sun from this timeframe indicates that it is now possible to use coronal hole data, as the SOHO and SDO satellites provide, as a proxy to measure and track solar weakness events, especially in later times when sunspots no longer occur on the face of the Sun.
The limit of technology is that we can only measure what IS occurring, and not what WILL BE occurring in the future.
For this knowledge, of what the future holds for us, we need to project forward in time what we have already seen and know. We can do this based on the principles that we discovered. The two images shown here, are less than 2 years apart in timing. The difference that may be typical of a trend, is dramatic. We need to project forwards, what we see here of the solar diminishing, to what we will likely see with the trend continuing for another 30 to 35 years.
The consequences are scary to imagine. They would be scary indeed if we didn't have the capability to evade the consequences.
