Way back in time, in the year 2003, Professor Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski, a world-renowned atmospheric scientist and mountaineer, who has excavated ice out of 17 glaciers on 6 continents in a 50-year career, warned in his paper "The Ice Age is Coming", that according to the observed average duration of the warm periods between the ice ages, the end of the current warm period has already been exceeded by 500 years.
He points out in the paper that the transition to the next Ice Age is near and may have already started, and warns that the phase shift between the cold and warm climate phases is dramatically short. He suggests that the transition phase may be as short as 50 years, or 20, or even 1 to 2 years, and that the phase shift to the next Ice Age can start virtually without warning.
Jaworowski points out in his 2003 paper that scientists t the Solar Terrestrial Institute in Irkutsk, in Siberia, have reported a sharp downward trend in annual averaged temperatures beginning in 1998, measured on the ground by the institute.
The average annual air temperature in Irkutsk, which correlates well with the average annual global temperature of the surface air, had reached its maximum of +2.3°C in 1997, and then began to drop to +1.2°C in 1998, to +0.7°C in 1999, and to +0.4°C in 2000.
That the measured trend is still continuing is evident in numerous other types of physical measurements.
Jaworowski cited the measurements as an example that a big phase shift has begun that should not be ignored. But this was all he could say. Back in 2003, it was not possible to say more, even by renowned scientists as himself, because the Ice Age dynamics were not correctly understood at the time for the lack of available data. Great research efforts were in progress at the time, with results being produced that stand poised to dramatically expand our perception of the Ice Age dynamics.
Several gigantic scientific research efforts were presenting data, both in space and on the ground, that opened a new window on the dynamics that cause Ice Ages and their severity.
Until this data became known, the most advanced ice age theory, which had been widely hailed at the time, was the Milankovitch Cycles Theory. It was eventually recognized to be a false concept.
The Milankovitch Cycles Theory proposed that ice ages result from the combined effect of minute cyclical variations of the tilt of the spin-axis of the Earth, its orientation, and the eccentricity of the Earth orbit around the Sun, that were observed to have very-long cycle times ranging from 26,000 years to 100,000 years. While these cyclical variations cause minute variations in hemispheric and seasonal distribution of the solar energy received on Earth, the theory became laid aside when the recognition dawned that the total energy received from the Sun remains always the same, regardless of the variations of the tilt of the Earth's spin axis and the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
The theory became increasingly a dead issue the more it was recognized that the Sun itself is the variable factor in the climate dynamics on Earth. Measurements of historic Carbon-14 values make this fact rather plain.
** Hard Physical Measurements ending the rule of opinions
In this illustration the plotted Carbon-14 ratios stand as an inverse proxy for solar activity intensity. Since the Carbon-14 isotope is the product of primarily solar cosmic-ray flux colliding with atmospheric nitrogen, the ratio of the abundance of this isotope, becomes a measurable proxy for the intensity of solar activity in historic times.
This ratio tells us with measurable certainty that the global warming of the Earth from the end of the Little Ice Age till modern time, has caused a massive up-ramping of the Sun, rather than by human activity. It proves that the the Sun is an immensely variable factor that affects the climate dynamics on Earth.
The proof is further supported by the up-ramping of the sunspot cycles, for which continuous historic data exists. Almost no sunspots had been visible for several decades during the Maunder Minimum of the Little Ice Age, the coldest period in recent history. Then, suddenly the sunspot cycles started up again in a big way, which is the result of dramatically increased solar activity, which by its timing is coincident with the warming of the Earth.
Thus, both, the Carbon-14 ratios as a proxy for solar activity, and the sunspot numbers, tell us unmistakably that the Sun is a highly variable factor that varies the climate on Earth.
Another cosmogenic proxy for solar activity is the isotope Beryllium-10. It is a radioactive isotope that is formed almost exclusively by cosmic-ray interaction with oxygen atoms in the atmosphere. Its relatively long half-life of 1.3 million years give it a long residence time before decaying into Boron. Boron is one of the rare atomic elements that is produced entirely by cosmic-ray spallation, instead of by the normal path of stellar nucleosynthesis. Boron is also an essential component for life on Earth, including human life and plant life. Since the Beryllium-10 that decays into Boron has its origin in the interaction of solar cosmic-ray flux in the atmosphere, its ratio serves as a perfect measurement for historic solar activity.
The resulting Beryllium measurements give us a third body of proof that the great global warming that began almost 300 years ago, was exclusively the result of the massive up-ramping of the Sun during this period. This 3-fold proof should be sufficient for the recognition that our Sun is a highly variable star.
As a proxy for solar activity, the changing Beryllium ratio also tells us that the regular 11-years solar cycles, that are normally evident as sunspot cycles, had continued throughout the Maunder Minimum of the Little Ice Age, but too faint in intensity for sunspot cycles to appear.
Another critical factor that the Beryllium ratio presents, is the immensely sharp up-turn in the recovery of the Sun, that terminates the Little Ice Age. It needs to be noted here that the Beryllium ratios, like the Carbon-14 ratios shown previously, are inversely plotted, because low solar activity causes high volumes of cosmic-ray flux that generates high ratios of the proxy isotopes.
This means in simple terms, that when the Sun had been going strong, its surrounding plasma sphere had been dense so that much of the solar cosmic-ray flux had been absorbed by it. This resulted in lower cosmic-ray volume and consequently lower isotope ratios. By the same principle, whenever the Sun had been weak, with a less-dense plasma sphere around it, greater volumes of cosmic-ray flux had been escaping, which had resulted in greater isotope ratios. The ratios were preserved in historic deposits.
The inverse plotting is used to compensate for the inverse relationship between solar activity and cosmic-ray flux that is reflected in the isotope ratios. This practice is typical for presenting cosmogenic proxies, which makes the result highly illustrative and its significance more recognizable.
The result is important, because it illustrates that the general decline in solar activity through to the late 1600s had cause the solar activity to become so weak in the late 1600s that we may have nearly lost the interglacial climate with the final phase shift to the Full Ice Age. We had come this close.
** The lack of hard-measured scientific data
When Jaworowski suggested in his 2003 paper, based on his own discoveries, that the end of the interglacial period is 500 years overdue, he was likely unaware of how close we had been to it in the late 1600s.
The scientific data for this recognition apparently didn't exist at the time. The reason for this lack of recognition, which still continues, is that the Sun's generated light and heat emissions are maintained steady by a strong regulating principle in the Sun's operation that compensates effectively for input fluctuations.
The regulating system is so efficient that the 11-years solar activity cycles, measured as sunspot cycles, maintain the solar surface temperature at a near constant level within a fraction of a percent in radiated energy. The fluctuating sunspot numbers, fluctuating solar cosmic-ray flux, and the fluctuating solar wind pressure, are tell-tale evidence that big changes are happening in the background, in the over-all system that generates the sunlight.
These tell-tale measurements that let us measure the up-ramping of the Sun from the Little Ice Age onward, also enable us to measure the now rapidly unfolding down-ramping of the solar activity and its progression towards the start-up of the next Ice Age Glaciation period.
In order to explore the great variable factor that the Sun obviously is, a gigantic space project had been started up in the 1970s to place an orbiter in a polar orbit around the Sun. Its purpose was to observe the Sun outside the ecliptic, and to measure all the key elements of solar activity there, in an undisturbed part of space.
Near the ecliptic, the solar effects are dramatically distorted by the heliospheric current sheet that connects the heliosphere with the Sun along the plain of the ecliptic. Outside the ecliptic, however, the measurements are clean. In order to make these clean measurements the 35-years-long Ulysses space mission was started up as a joint effort by NASA and the European space Agency.
After the mission had been designed and one of the two planned spacecraft had actually been built, the pioneering spacecraft was send on its way in 1990. It was a pioneering achievement indeed, in every respect. It was carried through to completion in-spite of funding cuts, mission curtailments, and two major delays in launching the craft with the U.S. space shuttle system.
The spacecraft that was launched in 1990, had been built by the European Space Agency. It was one of the two that had been planned. The American twin had been cancelled in 1981 during troublesome political times in the USA. It may have been the result of the dedication, hopes, and struggles by many concerned scientists that the mission had finally proceeded at all.
In hindsight, by the results obtained, the evidently great efforts that had kept the mission going, have been fully justified.
The extensive instrumentation that was carried by Ulysses, had revealed some major surprises in solar dynamics during the course of its three polar orbits around the Sun until the spacecraft began to fail.
The greatest surprise, however, was brought home during the 3rd orbit. The surprise was, that during the 10 years between the 1st and third orbit, the measured solar dynamics had dramatically diminished.
The solar wind pressure had diminished by 30%, the solar magnetic field likewise had diminished by 30%, and correspondingly the solar cosmic-ray flux had increased by 20%.
These are enormously large numbers for such a short period on the cosmic time scale.
The numbers tell us that the great phase shift had indeed begun that Jaworowski had suspected in his paper in 2003, in which he cited the massive diminishing of the on-the-ground air temperature measurements in Siberia.
** More data than we had bargained for
The measurements give us an unexpected stark view of the beginning of the first phase of the Ice Age startup. If one projects this beginning forward, past the 2008 time when the Ulysses mission was shut down, it becomes apparent that the solar-wind pressure will reach the zero mark in 2030, which thereby ends the first major phase of the Ice Age startup.
We are presently at the 45% mark on this slope to zero, that comprises the first phase of the Ice Age transition, the phase of the diminishing solar wind.
Why is this significant? It is significant, because this first phase, as slowly as it is unfolding, and this almost imperceptibly, may be the longest phase of the three phase process. The point is that we are almost half-the-way through this first phase without the slightest intention on our part, to react to what we see unfolding before our very eyes. We react as if it isn't happening; as if the current interglacial period will last another thousand years.
The second phase begins after the sunspot cycles no longer happen and the solar wind diminishes to near the zero level. That's when the radiated solar energy itself will begin to diminish. At this point, while the Sun is becoming colder, another little Ice Age will begin on Earth with gradually increasing severity. This second phase will end when the primer fields collapse that focus interstellar plasma around the Sun. At this point the 3rd phase shift happens, and the Ice Age begins.
When the primer fields collapse, the Sun becomes no longer supercharged with a dense sphere of plasma around it. It then falls back to the lower default state that is typical for the then prevailing background density of unfocused interstellar plasma.
This means that the current solar surface temperature of 5,800 degrees Kelvin will diminish to the near the 4,000 degrees mark within a short period of time, which results in 70% less solar energy being radiated.
This third phase shift will unfold rapidly and set the stage for the next 90,000 years glaciation period. The result will be a deep-freeze that no one in living memory has experienced or can imagine.
Ice core records indicate that the Little Ice Age of the 1600s was brought on by a half-decree cooling in global average temperature. In comparison, the glacial environment promises a 15 degrees cooling on average, in global average temperatures, with lows up to 20 degrees colder. That adds up to 40 times the amount of cooling that was experienced during the Little Ice Age.
This is big. This is what we need to get ready for. Science tells us that we have little time remaining for it. We should see it as time to repent from doing nothing. To do nothing is the current commitment.
On the scale of the glacial record from the Greenland Ice Sheet the current interglacial climate is comparable to the crest of a heat wave. The consequences are hard to imagine, when by the third phase shift, the Earth falls back into deep glacial conditions. But will this happen?
As I said before, the Carbon-14 ratios indicate that the world had already been experiencing extremely low solar activity during the Little Ice Age, with almost no sunspots seen for nearly a century. This qualifies the Little Ice Age as a Phase 2 example. The base line in solar activity had been gradually diminishing towards this point.
The Sun might also have been operating by then at a slightly lower surface temperature than today's 5,800 degrees Kelvin. This means we might have drifted precariously close to the final phase shift into glaciation at this time, that no one was aware of and very few people would have survived.
How close we came, will never be known.
As it was, humanity was spared this fate that no one had been ready for.
Humanity was saved by a sudden and powerful up-ramping of the Sun. If the great up-ramping of the Sun hadn't happened, that had pulled us away from the abyss, the end of the interglacial period would have come at this time. It would have taken everyone by surprise and killed most of humanity. No one had been prepared for a climate change on the scale of a Full Ice Age. No one could have even imagined such a thing to be possible. The relevant discoveries hadn't been made. The great up-ramping of the Sun, fortunately, saved us from all that, perhaps just barely.
When Jaworowski notes in his 2003 paper, The Ice Age is Coming, that the end of the interglacial is already 500 years overdue, he might not have suspected the cause for the delay. No one could have seen in those days what had pulled the Earth out of the Little Ice Age in the 1600s. The critical discovery for this recognition hadn't been made at the time, back in 2003.
** Big Scientific Discoveries after 2003
The big discoveries wouldn't become possible until after the North Greenland Ice Core Project had been completed and its samples dated in 2004, and then had been further explored.
The cause for the up-ramping of the Sun that had pulled the Earth away from the potential deep Ice Age starting in the 1600s, was likely one of the Dangaard Oeschger events that had been discovered earlier, but had been ignored as a possible anomaly, until they were confirmed by the North Greenland drilling project.
The Dansgaard Oeschger events are climate oscillations that have pulled the Earth periodically out of its deep glacial conditions throughout the last Ice Age, at intervals of 1470 years, until the conditions that caused these events became exhausted and the deep cooling began anew.
These events are evidently solar events caused by resonance features in the interstellar plasma system, of a type that periodically reactivates the Sun's primer fields for a short duration, that focus plasma unto the Sun.
If one projects the Dangaard Oeschger oscillations forward from known occurrences, it becomes apparent that the recovery of the Sun from the Little Ice Age was most likely caused by one of the still continuing Dansgaard Oeschger events, as faint as they presently may be.
The similarity that we see in comparing the Beryllium-10 proxy for solar activity with the beginning of the Dangaard Oechger events in the Greenland ice core samples, is amazing. We see the same fast and steep recovery of the Sun in both cases. The example of the Dangaard Oeschger event shown here is a composite of data from two different drilling sites.
It also appears that the great cosmic event that had rescued the Earth in the 1600s, ran out of steam at the end of the 1990s, by which the reversal to the big global cooling began anew that is now progressing.
The similarity is scary, because if it has been a Dansgaard Oeschger event that had recovered the Sun in the early 1700s, we can't count on this happening again.
The next Dansgaard Oeschger event isn't due for another thousand years and more.
Most likely we will see the presently ongoing diminishment of the Sun to continue as steeply as it is presently happening until the Sun's primer fields fail, whereby the next deep glaciation period begins.
Another major item of evidence that Zbigniew Jaworowski couldn't have seen, is the evidence provided by the Ulysses spacecraft that had been observing the Sun for 15 years from a polar orbit around it, until 2008.
The Ulysses spacecraft was designed to measure the solar wind characteristics in the entire space around the Sun, and this in a polar orbit outside the ecliptic, because the solar winds are dramatically affected by the heliospheric current sheet that pervades the ecliptic space. Outside of it, clean solar-wind readings were obtained.
The Ulyssesspacecraft observed the Sun for almost three complete orbits. From this, as I said before, a great surprise emerged. It was discovered that the solar-wind pressure had diminished by 30% during the 10 years interval between the 1st and 3rd orbit. This reduction is enormous for such a short period on the cosmic scale.
Ulysses tells us with its measurements that at the observed rate of diminishment the solar winds will cease in the early 2030s This cut-off projection is significant, because of the nature of the solar wind.
Seen in simplistic terms, the solar wind is comparable to steam being boiled off from a heated kettle. When the heat is increased, the water in the kettle does not get hotter than the boiling point, so that the additional energy input turns more water into steam. When the flame becomes reduced, a point will be reached at which no more steam is generated. If the energy input is reduced further, the water gets colder. The same happens on the Sun. When the energy input into the Sun is reduced, by lower-density plasma flowing onto it, a threshold point is reached at which the solar winds cease. After that, the Sun itself begins to diminish. This makes the solar-wind cut-off point an extremely critical point as it signals the start of the second phase of the Ice Age Start-Up sequence, the phase of the diminishing Sun.
It appears that the solar wind cut-off is a critical marker between high temperature stars and low temperature stars.
High temperature stars, like Fomalhaut, appear crisply outlined when seen with telescopes. The reason for this may be that strong solar winds carry the star's fusion products, its synthesized atomic elements, far away from the star.
Low temperature stars in comparison, which operate at and below 4,000 degrees surface temperature, tend to have the fusion products that are created on their surface, hanging around them like a cloud of fog, because of the absence of solar winds that would otherwise purge their atmosphere.
Because of these differences, the zero point in solar-wind pressure marks a critical point that opens the door to the second phase of the Ice Age Start-Up process, beyond which the solar fusion process itself begins to diminish, and with it the solar surface temperature.
At which point in time the primer fields will collapse, cannot be determined, which then no longer focus high-density plasma unto the Sun.
The principles of the primer fields have been extensively researched. They are dynamic, electromagnetic structures that require a minimal rate of plasma flow to form, and to exists.
When the minimal threshold is crossed for the primer fields to function, the Sun will likely fall back to a lower level, a type of unaided state of solar activity, which would lower its surface temperature to roughly 4,000 degrees with 70% less energy being radiated.
** Science Challenging the Imagination
The Ulysses project thus raises the bar for us, by illustrating with concrete measurements that the solar collapse point is far closer at hand than anyone had dared to imagine before.
The amazing speed of the ongoing collapse of the solar system should jolt us out of the Easy Chair. It may do this some day.
The second amazing discovery that the Ulysses mission brought home, is that it proved - to as much as such a proof is possible - that the Sun is externally powered by high-density plasma streams being focused on it.
The proof is located in the void it has reported, in the solar-wind measurements, over each of the Sun's polar regions. The voids are located exactly where one would expect the plasma connections to be located, from the primer fields to the Sun.
High-power electric discharge experiments conducted at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, produced a unique magnetically self-aligned phenomenon generated by the flow of electric particles.
When one superimposes the experiment derived geometry onto the radial graph of Ulysses' measurements, the voids in the measurements coincide with the experimental result of the plasma-flow experiment.
Thus, Ulysses shows us what no one may have expected before, that the Sun is a plasma star.
The plasma, which flows through the voids unto the Sun, is the end-point feature of interstellar plasma streams, for which the solar system as a whole, serves as a node point.
Node points form when the self-pinching effect of plasma streams reach a point when the containing magnetic fields break down, causing the concentrated plasma to blow out, typically onto a sun that consumes a portion, which enables the rest to flow on.
Our Sun is thereby brought to light as an electric star, and the solar system as an electrically powered phenomenon that responds to external fluctuations.When we are looking for the cause of climate fluctuations, this is where we find the answers and the evidence, and we have a lot of evidence to digest.
We have 3-fold hard evidence that the 300 years of global warming out of the Little Ice Age was caused by the Sun. We see clear evidence for it in the Carbon-14 ratios shown here.
And we see corresponding evidence for the up-ramping of the Sun in the Beryllium-10 ratios. And we see the evidence also in increasing sunspot numbers.
Furthermore, we see also 3-fold evidence that the operation of the Sun is presently diminishing in a near free-fall collapse fashion.
We see the collapse happening in the measurements of the Ulysses mission.
We also see the same fast collapse happening in the diminishing sunspot numbers, and in the corresponding increase in coronal holes that tell the same story.
We even see the dramatic weakening evident in the diminishing magnetic pole deflection. In a strong solar system the magnetic primer fields for the Sun cause a 23 degree magnetic pole deflection, according to the tilt of the axis of the Earth. This deflection began to diminish in the early 1900s, and accelerated massively near the end of the 1900s when the solar collapse phase began.
This means that we have 3 fundamentally different types of evidence for the collapse process too, with all of them telling the same story that the Sun-system is in a near-free-fall collapse phase that promises to end with the start-up of the next Ice Age in the near future, possibly in the 2050s.
So, where do we go from here? We are at the 45% mark of the first phase of the collapse process.
Shouldn't we begin with acknowledging that the discoveries that we had made are real, and that the evidence that supports them is real likewise, and that the time has come to react to them?
** Where do we go from here?
Obviously, the Ice Age Start-Up response phase, in society, should begin here. This train should begin with society acknowledging the variable Sun as a reality, that responds to changing conditions located outside the solar system itself, in interstellar space.
All climate changes that we experience on Earth, small and big, including the massive Ice Ages in the past that have become the norm during the last 2 million years, are evidently rooted externally in interstellar space. No evidence exists that the cause for the Ice Age is located inside the solar system.
The Ulysses measurements brought this point home to us. So what about the next Ice Age then?
Obviously, the next Ice Age will happen as the cosmic dynamics causes it to happen, whether we find the timing inconvenient or not.
Thus, we can say as often as we want that the start-up of the next Ice Age isn't happening, or won't be happening for a long time, and dilute ourselves with these beliefs that defy the evidence. The Universe isn't responsive to what we wish and say. Its dynamics is responsive to its principles, not to our wishes.
What we say or believe in our ignorance won't effect the universe, but it will certainly affect us. It presently keeps us off guard, vulnerable, surprised, fearful, and impotent.
Only when we begin to look outside the box of ignorance, searching for evidence, do we find evermore with shock and surprise that the Ice Age Start-Up has already begun; that it is happening with wide-reaching consequences already; and that the 1st phase is already 45% complete on the entire front, wherever we look.
With our eyes open, we can see corresponding evidence everywhere. The weakening plasma sphere around the Sun, for example, is causing evermore and ever larger coronal holes to occur, with corresponding increases in solar cosmic-ray flux and their effect on the climate on Earth.
Back in 2007 when the coronal holes were still rare occurrences, little holes caused headlines.
Now, merely nine years later, when large coronal holes cover nearly the entire face of the Sun, almost nobody raises an eyebrow anymore.
With the big changes happening slowly, spread over the space of years, it is easy to loose sight of the larger picture. As a consequence, without an understanding of the principles involved, no serious efforts are being made to respond to the evidence that already exist and is known. We are fascinated, instead, with small things, while ignoring the big things.
On this train of ignoring the big things, society is committing suicide on a grand scale by putting itself asleep at the most critical stage in the history of humanity when the really big things are unfolding before its very eyes.
Thus, with its eyes closed, society ignores the grand down-ramping in solar activity that began in 1998, which Ulysses has reported, which started the 1st phase of the Ice Age Start-Up sequence. The grand solar reversal that it reported, should have, at the very least, sparked the recognition that the manmade global warming doctrine is a dead horse that should be let go.
Society equally ignores the grand up-ramping in solar activity that had ended the Little Ice Age with a massive recovery of the Sun, which gave us 300 years of solar global warming, not manmade global warming. By the recognition of the evidence that wasn't even hidden, but was right in the open, the manmade global warming horse was a dead horse from the beginning. Ironically, multitudes are still riding this dead horse, unaware that it IS dead.
Even the Carbon-14 data hasn't caused the recognition yet that the manmade global warming horse is dead, and has been so from its inception. Far too few people are willing to recognize even today that it was the massive up-ramping of the Sun that gave us the 300 years of global warming, for which humanity has been vilified and is destroying its economy for.
And even fewer people than those, are willing to recognize the obvious fact that the solar up-ramping is over, that an immensely fast solar down-ramping has begun in a near-free-fall fashion. The free-fall collapse is evident everywhere.
The Sun is down-ramping in a big way. We see a sharp and steady down-ramping in the sunspot cycles, measured and predicted, which makes it rather plain that a major phase shift is happening. And as you can see, the timeframe for this happening is extremely short. The up-ramping of the Sun from the Little Ice Age occurred over a span of 300 years. The down-ramping that is now in progress promises the reverse action to unfold in a span of only 30 years - 10 times faster.
The solar down-ramping that is now in progress makes it rather plain that the solar cycle 24 will likely be the last one that we will see, with the next phase shift following thereafter.
The down-ramping that we see in solar activity, that is evident in the diminishing sunspot cycles and increasing solar coronal holes, coincide well with the diminishing solar wind pressure that the Ulysses spacecraft had measured.
This down-ramping in solar activity may have been suspected already in the 1960s when the need to prepare for the next Ice Age was put on the table in the scientific community at this time.
** Science versus Anti-Science
These science-voices of reason were tragically scorched in 1974 with the invention of the Manmade Global Warming doctrine and other ugly political projects.
Nevertheless, while the Global Warming doctrine took the focus away from the real issue, the real issue still remained had hadn't been fully buried in the scientific community under rubble of the hubbub, so it seems, because it was in the 1970s, in the background to all the nasty things, that the Ulysses project was put forward.
The need for discovering the truth was evidently recognized at this time. This meant that the time had come to take a closer look at the Sun from outside the ecliptic plain, from a point in space where the solar winds can be measured unaffected by the heliospheric current sheet that dominates the ecliptic, from where the Sun is commonly observed.
original concept was to fly two spacecraft in opposite directions around the sun for comparative purposes. One was to be built by the ESA and one by NASA. The NASA spacecraft was cancelled in 1981. The timing of the cancellation, and of the earlier artwork shown here from 1978, suggest that the mission was perceived at some point in the 1970s.
The Ulysses mission was perceived in the very decade in which we saw the worldwide start-up of anti-science movements. It is unknown how deeply intertwined the inception of the Ulysses mission was with the anti-science project that stood behind the Manmade Global Warming doctrine, that was massively promoted to become a worldwide anti-science movement, which it became.
The Ulysses mission might have been curtailed and then delayed several times, because, by its very nature as a science driver, it flew in opposition to the global warming doctrine.
Ironically, the Ulysses mission turned the global warming doctrine into a dead horse completely, with its findings, even while the doctrine had been a dead horse from the beginning.
The Ulysses mission turned the manmade global warming doctrine into a really dead horse not so much by its demonstrated conclusion that the re-warming of the Earth after the Little Ice Age had been caused entirely by the up-ramping of the Sun. No, Ulysses killed the dead horse much more with its concrete evidence that the great hlobal warming period is now over, and that a new phase has begun, a phase of rapid solar collapse, that in its free-fall fashion speeds us towards the Start-Up of the next Ice Age.
But much more important than rendering the Manmade Global Warming doctrine a dead horse, was the dramatic illustration by Ulysses that the first phase of the start-up of the next Ice Age has begun and is unfolding fast.
Ulysses gave us a front-row seat in the theater of the first phase of the Ice Age Start-Up. It covered the first 30% of it, with its solar-wind measurements, with which it enabled us to see for the first time in history that the solar system is collapsing in a free-fall fashion. The 30% diminishment on the solar-wind pressure in just 10 years, is akin to a free-fall collapse on the cosmic scale.
The solar diminishment at a rate of 30% in 10 years, that the Ulysses spacecraft brought home, is comparable to a free-fall collapse even in the theater of historic experiences, because nothing of this sort has ever been seen. This is unprecedented. It it gigantic. It is almost unimaginable. No one is prepared for it. Most people simply deny it and banish it from the mind. Nevertheless, it is changing the world.
Not only does it render the Hydrogen Sun theory a dead horse together with the Manmade Global Warming theory; it also turns a number of prominent economic projects into dead horses that now will never see the light of day, such as the NAWAPA project and the Bering Strait Tunnel project.
** Victims and Horizons of Reality
The NAWAPA project is a gigantic civil engineering proposal from the 1960, from a time when the world was dreaming that its interglacial warm holiday would never end, at least not for a long time. The project is designed to divert the outflow of two major rivers in Alaska, backwards, into the mountains, through the Rocky Mountain Trench, across the high plains of the Nevada Great Basin, all the way to the dry southern regions were irrigation water is critically needed.
The NAWAPA project is designed to be gigantic in scope, but feasible. It is a dead horse now that will never fly. It isn't a dead horse, because it would take 50 years to build the project, and because it would be insufficient to meet the now ever-growing need for freshwater. It is a dead horse for the simple reason that its feed stock, the northern rivers, would cease to exist long before the project would be completed.
It doesn't mean that the freshwater needs of humanity cannot be met. These needs can be met easily with freshwater conveyance afloat in the oceans.
Water conveyance through the oceans can be implemented quickly, and on the global scale. There is no shortage of freshwater on the planet.
The water-needs of the world can be met by diverting the outflow of the Amazon River, the Congo River, and the Oronoco River in Venezuela, with a Transocean Pipeline system to wherever water is needed, until desalination can fill the need.
All of this can be done and be operating before the first phase of the Ice Age Start-up ends.
The Bering Strait Tunnel also falls into the category of a dead horse, for the same reason.
The project is designed as a 50 miles long under-sea tunnel that links the Eurasian and American continents with a mass-transportation infrastructure. While the project is feasible and is economically desirable, it is a dead horse because of its location becomes a dead landscape in the near term.
This doesn't mean that the idea of building fixed-link transportation channels between the continents is a dead issue. In fact, great fixed-links will be built, and they will be built more easily than the Bering Strait Tunnel project would be built.
Large-scale floating links between the continents can be constructed with relatively little effort when fully automated, large-scale industrial production methods are applied for producing the floating bridge modules, and basalt is used as feed stock, processed with high-temperature nuclear process-heat that is applied to melt the basalt for its reshaping into anything.
