The answer to the, Now What? is, that we are about to undertake the greatest transformation of the world.
We are about to experience the greatest economic miracle unfolding, with the greatest industrial revolution of all time.
We are about to witness the greatest scientific, technological, political, economic, and cultural uplift, beyond anything that has ever been achieved on this planet.
And for this to happen, we have truly inexhaustible energy resources available to us. Nothing can hold us back, except we ourselves, and this isn't something that the new dawn of humanity will allow us to continue.
So what, that the next Ice Age begins in 2050s or slightly sooner, and begins almost explosively?
We have the capacity within us as human beings to uplift our world to the stage where the Ice Age can have no effect on us. And we have the power to move beyond even that.
We will built 6,000 new cities for a million people each, and do it in the short span of time that we have left; not in the old style, of course.
We will build the new cities with such efficiency that we will provide them to one-another for free, universally, as an investment into the greatest asset that humanity has, which is itself as human beings.
This is not pie in the sky stuff. The greatest potential for our self-development exists right now. The potential is real.
And the greatest incentive that we can possibly have, to realize this potential, is also very real.
**The potential: To master the Ice Age Challenge
The world ship is sinking into a new Ice Age with immense consequences.
The incentive that we presently have is the greatest incentive that we can possibly have, which is for us to continue to live on the planet Earth. This type of incentive is supremely imperative. The challenge is to build up the greatest renaissance of all times.
Our responding to the Ice Age Challenge has this potential. Anything less tha a full response to the Ice Age Challenge is synonymous with committing suicide.
And the time to start is now. It takes an enormous global effort for humanity to relocate itself from outside the tropics, into the tropics, before the areas outside the tropics become uninhabitable. This leaves us roughly 30 years.
We are presently at the 30% mark, measured in time, of the Titanic world Ship sinking back to its normal Ice Age glaciation cycle. This ratio is measured against the 1998 reference point when the solar-wind measurements began to be made by the Ulysses spacecraft in a polar orbit around the Sun, which detected a 30% drop-off in key measurements over a 10-years periods.
Contrary to mainstream science perception and general opinion, the World Ship really is sinking, as the Titanic did in the past.
The World Ship is sinking back into the long-awaited next Ice Age. The Sun already diminishing. This is happening at an amazingly fast pace. Soon, nothing will be the same anymore.
The Ice Age transition is not something that will happen gradually oven the next thousand years. It has already started and is unfolding fast. The devastating California drought that began in 2011, which is now massively increasing, is a fringe effect on this path with devastating consequences. This means that we are already in the first phase of the Ice Age transiton
The Ice Age transition promises to be a three-stage process. During the first phase, which is unfolding slowly, the solar wind is diminishing. On Earth only a few fringe events are experienced, such as droughts, flooding, changing weather patterns.
The second phase begins after the solar wind has diminished to zero. At this point the solar intensity itself begins to diminish, causing much harsher fringe effects for our world, along the line of the Little Ice Age of the 1600s. Agriculture begins to fail at this point as it did in the 1600s.
After that, the big phase-shift occurs. The big phase shift happens when the minimal threshold is crossed whereby the electromagnetic the Primer Fields collapse that presently focus high-density plasma onto the Sun. I'll present the principle of the Primer Fields later.
At the point, the point of the big phase shift to level III, the solar surface temperature falls back from the present level of 5,800 degrees Kelvin, to about 4,000 degrees. The effect on Earth will be that the next Ice Age begins in full force and agriculture fails globally, unless technological preparations were made for it to continue.
The decisive phase shift that ushers in the next Ice Age will likely occur in the 2050s timeframe or sooner. It could happen sooner, as soon as 30 years from now. Or it may take longer. The timing is uncertain. No historic measurements exist.
The previous Ice Age start happened 120,000 years ago. Also, solar activity details are not preserved in ice. The ice contains primarily temperature proxies.
The Little Ice Age that we have historic knowledge of, doesn't give us much to go by, either, in spite the fact that we have measurable solar activity proxies preserved from this period in the form of carbon-14 ratios.
The only known natural source for the Carbon-14 isotope on Earth is the interaction of solar cosmic-ray flux with nitrogen in the atmosphere.
The measurements of the Carbon-14 ratio over the 1,200-years time-span shown here, show a general down-slope occurring towards the Little Ice Age.
Obviously, some of the slope is caused by the atomic decay over time of the Carbon-14 isotope.
However, some of the down ramping in the Carbon-14 measurement obviously also reflects the general long-term down-ramping trend in solar activity that began more than 3,000 years ago, which is glaringly apparent in the ice-core data from the Greenland ice sheet.
While no sunspots observations have been reported for the times of the earlier climate minimum periods, historic solar reports do exist for the Maunder Minimum period of the Little Ice Age. It has been reported, based on careful observations with telescopes, that the Sun was so weak in the 1600 that for a 30 years period almost no sunspots were observed. This period of weak solar activity, is perfectly reflected in the Carbon-14 data, which proves that that the Carbon-14 ratios are a reliable proxy for the historic intensity of the solar activity. It also proves that our Sun is a dramatically variable star. And it suggests that we may have come close in the 1600s, to the start of the next Ice Age, perhaps to within a few years of its starting.
We can say with certainty, however, that the solar intensity was suddenly sharply ramped up before the phase shift to the full Ice Ace could take place. The solar up-ramping shows up clearly in the Carbon-14 data. The cause for it was likely one of the Dangaard Oeschger events that were only discovered, which I'll refer to later.
It may well be, that if the Sun's up-ramping had not occurred, we would likely not exist today. The resulting Ice Age would have ended civilization.
We have lived in a climate anomaly for the last 12,000 years, which is now ending. When the phase shift to next glaciation period occurs, termed the Ice Age, which is the normal long-term climate on the Earth, its consequences will affect the global 'landscape' without exception.
The Ice Age phase shift is huge and has enormous consequences. It will affect the global agriculture deeply, and thereby our food supply, worldwide. And with it, it will affect the living of humanity more radically and more extensively than any other event in all of what we call history.
Our agriculture and our civilization are both keyed to the nicely warm climates of the current interglacial period. Everything that we became was created during the easy living of the current interglacial period, as if no prior history existed.
The transformation of the Earth back to its normal glacial condition, as it had been for the last half million years, promises to occur swiftly, in the space of weeks or months, in which the radiated solar energy diminishes by up to 70%, to its Ice Age default level. While the global climate will adjust itself more slowly, agriculture will be affected immediately. This means, that we should pay attention to what the unfolding numerous forms of evidence that we have already gathered, is telling us.
Evidence in Carbon-14
Evidence in visible observation
Evidence in diminish solar wind
Evidence measured in space
Evidence discovered on Earth
Evidence replicated in laboratories
The final outcome of the process, which numerous forms evidence tell is already in progress, is unavoidable. The numerous forms of evidence tell us that a huge transforming process is in progress, and that its outcome cannot be prevented, but that its effects can still be avoided.
The effect can be avoided with the wilful transformation of our living in such a manner that it renders the astrophysical phase shift to have no effect on it. This self-rescue by humanity is possible, by relocating itself into the tropics where the solar in-flux is the strongest. This can be achieved. But will we do it?
Under the current political climate the answer is, that we will do nothing. Likewise, in the current environment of politically constricted science, the Ice Age challenge is not being recognized, nor the evidence for it, so that nothing will be done to meet and master the challenge.
This means that in the current political climate the greatest imperative at the present time will be ignored, even while the consequences from doing nothing will not be avoided.
The steam ship, Titanic, sank over the span of 160 minutes in the middle on the night of the 14th of April in 1912. The phase shifts began with the ship's collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic.
At the 30 minute mark, when it was understood that the sinking of the ship cannot be prevented, the captain of the ship ordered the launching of the ship's lifeboats, of which it had far too few. The owners of the ship were severely criticized for the omission.
But what about us? Our World Ship is sinking with seven billion people on board? We don't have any lifeboats at all, nor do we have the slightest intention to build any.
When the Titanic sank, it sank with more than 2/3 of its passengers and crew remaining on the ship. For these no lifeboats had been available. Surely, we want to do better this time around. That's the incentive.
Humanity has an extremely poor historic track record in surviving Ice Age conditions. During the last two million years of the human journey, humanity has encountered more than 20 Ice Age periods of gradually increasing severity. It appears that each of the glaciation periods had devastating effects on humanity and may have caused the extinction of all but the current human species. We, the homosapiens, are the 8th species, the shortest lived, and the sole survivor; and this just barely.
We emerged from the last glaciation period called the Ice Age, with an estimated total world population in the range of one to ten million people. That's all we had after two million years running. The sparse population level at the end of last Ice Age, illustrates to some degree the extreme severity of Ice Age conditions.
In the period that followed the 90,000 years of the last glaciation - our current interglacial warm holiday from the cold, called the Holocene epoch - we have developed ourselves into a seven-billion population, primarily by the power of our amazing technological advances.
With the Holocene now fast ending, we face the awesome task to create the technological infrastructures that will enable us to enter the next deep-glaciation period with a 7 to 10 billion world population and to prosper in spite of the biologically sparse period of 90,000 years in duration. While it is possible to build the needed infrastructures for our survival, in 30 years time, the question remains, will we do it?
Very few people are aware of the vast scope of the challenge that we face during the glaciation periods, for the lack of any historic references in remembered experiences. The evident reason is that extremely few people had lived during the glaciation periods.
** The Dangaard Oeschger Oscillations
It is only recently, since the end of the 1990s, through ice sample exploration, that we began to discover in detail what type of conditions were encountered during the glaciation periods, and how these conditions relate to our current climate.
What we discovered with the ice-coring projects, verified previously developed Ice Age concepts that were based on data gleamed from deep-sea sediments.
However, the ice core data, especially from the Greenland ice, indicates that glaciation climates had been far more severe than was previously assumed.
In comparison with the half a degree cooling that was experienced during the Little Ice Age in the 1600s, we are looking at a twenty degrees cooling during the real Ice Age conditions. This adds up to a 40-times deeper cooling than the worst that has been experienced in recorded history.
That's what we have to deal with, and prepare for. Failing to respond is, as I said, synonymous with committing suicide.
The ice core data gleamed from the Greenland ice sheet also indicates that enormous temperature oscillations have occurred during the last glaciation period, with fast transitions from deep glaciation level to near the interglacial level in the space of mere decades. The oscillations are termed the Dangaard Oechger oscillations in honour of the researchers who discovered their consistent repetition in intervals of 1470 years.
While the oscillations don't render the glaciation condition significantly less severe, they add to the critical science perception of what causes the glaciation cycles in the first place.
Ironically, it is here, in the 'perception department' where we face the greatest obstacles against our responding to the coming Ice Age conditions, and thereby face the greatest danger to our existence by us failing to respond. We encounter a problem in mainstream science which remains boxed in to false assumptions about the nature of the Sun, which is the driver for the climate on Earth. Whatever falls outside the box is deemed not to exist.
** Two opposite models for the Sun.
There exist two fundamentally opposite models of the nature of the Son; the hydrogen-Sun model, and the plasma-Sun model. Each has its corresponding theorized effects on the climate on Earth.
The mainstream theory is that the Sun is a sphere of hydrogen gas that is heated from within by nuclear-fusion reactions occurring at its core. It is deemed that the energy transport from the core is an extremely slow process that's in the range of 30 million years. That's the theory.
On the basis of the assumed long, heat transfer processes, the Sun is generally regarded in climate considerations as an invariable constant. Thus it is assumed further that all Ice Age phenomena must be the result of other than solar causes.
It has been theorized on the basis of this assumption that Ice Ages are caused by the interaction of long-term minute fluctuations of the eccentricity of the Earth orbit around the Sun and of the Earth's spin-axis inclination, and its changing location.
The problem with this theory, as a cause for the Ice Age cycles is, that the total solar energy that is received from the Sun remains the same regardless of how its spin axis is inclined and shifts geographically, and its orbital eccentricity varies. Thus, the orbital cycles theory is fast loosing ground, while it remains the only mechanistic Ice Age theory that has been devised.
As an alternative, exotic theories have been developed that attribute the Ice Age phenomena to natural CO2 fluctuations, along the line of the CO2 caused global-warming dogma for which no evidence exists.
In contrast with all that, outside the mainstream box, stands the plasma-Sun theory for which monumental evidence does exists, which fundamentally disproves the hydrogen-Sun theory and its assumptions.
The plasma-Sun theory recognizes the Sun to be a sphere of plasma, rather than as a sphere of atomic gases.
The term plasma refers to the basic particles of the universe that all the atomic elements that are known to exist are created from. Plasma is a 'soup' of primarily two types of basic particles, the proton and the electron that carry a positive and negatice electric charge, respectively, that causes their interaction by the electric force, a force that is 39 orders of magnitude stronger than gravity.
Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and others, have come to the recognition that more than 99.999% of the mass of the universe exists in the form of plasma, most of it organized into vast networks of plasma streams that pervade the universe.
In free-flowing plasma electrons and protons attract each other, but before they combine a strong nuclear force repels them again, which forces the electrons that are nearly 2,000 times less massive than the protons into an endless dance around the protons.
However, in large plasma concentrations, as in the case of the Sun, the lighter electrons tend to migrate to the surface where they form an electron-dense layer that covers the Sun with an electric sheath. The result is the inverse in principle of a gas sphere, which has its greatest density at the center. A plasma sphere has its greatest density at its surface. That's critical for a Sun to function. It also goes far beyond what mainstream cosmology is presently able to recognize, in spite of the evidence for it.
As a sphere of plasma, our Sun is immensely electrically active, by which it is powered.
The interaction of the electric sheath with external plasma that flows in interstellar plasma streams, causes plasma fusion reactions to occur on the surface of the Sun.
In the interaction, atomic structures are synthesized. Light is emitted from the created, highly energized atoms, which becomes the sunlight that illumines and warms the Earth. But since the dynamic action that creates the Sun's radiated energy is dependent on external plasma flowing into the Sun, the Sun is in principle a highly variable star that varies with external plasma pressure. The Sun also emits solar cosmic-ray flux.
Cosmic rays are not streams of radiation. They are single events of immensely energized protons or electrons escaping from the magnetically confined plasma fusion process on the surface of the Sun. The density of the events is measurable.
That's what we measure with the Carbon-14 measurements.
Solar cosmic-ray flux is only possible from a plasma Sun. No potential for this exists under the hydrogen-gas Sun model. The Carbon-14 measurements prove that our Sun is a plasma Sun.
The Carbon-14 measurements tell us that the Sun emits cosmic-ray flux from its reactive surface, and that this flux is attenuated by the plasma corona surrounding the Sun that varies in density, which affects the solar activity intensity.
The Carbon-14 measurements tell us that the ever-changing climate on Earth coincides consistently with the ever-changing intensity of solar activity. When the solar activity is high, the solar cosmic-ray flux is weak, because more of it is absorbed in the plasma shell surrounding the Sun. Inversely, when the plasma shell is thinner, whereby the solar activity is weaker, the escaping solar cosmic-ray flux is denser and increases cloud formation.
It has been experimentally verified with the CERN-lab CLOUD project, with the results illustrated here, that cosmic-ray interaction with the atmosphere increases cloudiness.
It is self-evident that increased cloudiness reflects more of the incoming sunlight back into space, whereby the Earth get colder.
That's the interacting effects that we see reflected in the Carbon-14 ratios coinciding with known climate anomalies.
The Carbon-14 measurements prove that the cooling for the Little Ice Age and the warming afterwards are both the direct result of changes in solar activity. The measurements prove that the Sun can change massively and rapidly. This proof gives us a basis for the recognition that Ice Age cycles are likewise caused by the ever-changing Sun, and that fast transitions to glaciation is possible as the consequence of the changing Sun. The measurements disprove the theory that Sun is constant factor in climate considerations.
The perception of the plasma Sun as a variable star is critical for us launching an effective response in the world to the Ice Age Challenge. It is imperative, in fact, to recognize that the Sun is externally powered and is thereby inherently variable, and is highly affected by supply fluctuations, and that its operating on this basis causes Ice Ages on Earth with quick transitions, and the rapid climate oscillations termed the Dangaard Oeschger oscillations that the ice coring projects have revealed in the early 2000s timeframe.
The plasma-Sun theory is built on the pioneering work the Swedish explorer Hannes Alven, who devised a galactic model for the plasma universe concept, which he may have pioneered in the first place. He received the Nobel price in physics for his related work. The Plasma-Universe concept that Hannes Alven had pioneered, reflects the ever-widening scientific recognition that more than 99.999% of the mass of the universe exists in the form of plasma instead as atomic elements.
