Between the end of solar global warming and the start of the near Ice Age unfolds the Ice Age Boundary Zone.
Yes, there was such a thing as Global Warming. But is wasn't manmade. It was caused by the Sun.
Part 1 - The Variable Sun: Our Climate Forcer
The Sun's Global Warming broke the Little Ice Age and lasted for nearly 300 years. It ended in the late 1990s.
This grand global warming by the Sun, is history now. Remember it fondly! It won't be happening again in your lifetime! The Earth is getting colder every year. In the course of it, agriculture becomes endangered.
We are now in the boundary zone that marks the interval in time between the end of the last solar global warming and the start of the next Ice Age, in potentially the 2050s.
Last Ice Age
The coming Ice Age transition
The boundary zone (the last 50 years)
This boundary zone is not the transition zone in which the next Ice Age unfolds. The Ice Age transition is an enormous event that takes us into a completely different world that no one can likely imagine.
The boundary zone, in comparison, comprises the timeframe of the last 5 decades of the present interglacial climate, before the Ice Age transition begins. This is the timeframe in which the dynamic system that powers the Sun, begins to weaken irreversibly.
The visible results are fringe effects that appear faintly at first, but then happen evermore rapidly, and with increasing severity, as the system that powers the Sun diminishes evermore towards its final phase shift by which the Earth becomes radically transformed.
Before that phase shift happens, the weakening of the system that powers the Sun becomes expressed in numerous escalating climate effects that are beginning to affect our agricultures and with it our food supplies. That's the timeframe of the boundary zone.
To put it more dramatically, in the boundary zone our Sun is 'dying'. That's what we are facing now. There is nothing we can do to halt or reverse the process that is diminishing our Sun. However, we can build us a New World with technological infrastructures placed across the Equatorial seas that enables our continued living and unending development under a lesser Sun.
In speaking of solar global warming, I am referring to the Great Global Warming of the Earth that had saved humanity from a potential Ice Age transition in the 1700s, which had terminated the little Ice Age.
In the 1700s the Sun became strengthened by a plasma resonance effect within the system that powers the Sun. When the resonance effect ended, the process began to unfold in reverse. In this reversal, the Sun is diminishing back towards the level of the Little Ice Age. And since there is little background support left in the system, the Sun will diminish beyond the Little Ice Age into to the Big Ice Age that we had just barely missed in the 1700s.
We are in that kind of boundary zone.
We are presently 20 years into the Ice Age boundary zone. As I said before, the boundary zone began when the last period of solar global warming ended and solar activity began to reverse. The reversal became evident in the collapsing solar wind pressure at the rate of 30% per decade, that had been measured in space in real time by the Ulysses spacecraft between 1998 and 2008.
The Great Global Warming that had saved us from the Big Ice Age, in the 1700s had been caused by cosmic factors that had up-ramped solar activity in a big way. This up-ramping was real. It was powerful. The resulting Solar Global Warming gave us the most productive climate for agriculture in more than a thousand years. That's what had ended in the 1990s.
Far into this last period of global-warming, the USA became created. And soon thereafter the federation of Canada was enacted. At the same time Europe developed its second renaissance that may be termed the Westphalian Renaissance. This means that the climate foundation on which these nations were built up on, is now fading, which endangers the nations.
Canada was formed (1867)
The USA was formed (1776)
Boundary Zone 1990s to present
Unfortunately, the Cosmic Global Warming period that was brought about by an effect within the solar system - a type of global warming pulse, within which the USA and Canada were formed and had developed - is now irreversibly ending. We simply cannot get it back. The system that powers our Sun is now rapidly diminishing, as the global warming pulse is drawing to its end.
With the interglacial climate having been gradually diminishing ever since the interglacial optimum 8,000 years ago, we find in ice core samples that the interglacial climate is diminishing evermore rapidly now as we are coming to the end of it. This means that the underlying support for the solar system no longer exists for a significant reversal to happen, from the increasing weakening of the Sun.
We, humanity, certainly cannot affect this huge cosmic process by any means that we possess.
So it is that from the 1990s on, we've begun to live in a boundary time-zone towards the inevitable phase shift to the next Ice Age that we cannot escape, but which we have the power to avoid the consequences of, - by us building us a New World with technological infrastructures that are not affected by the climate change to the next Ice Age, - which will be bigger than any ever experienced in recorded history.
Facing the consequences
About the image:
The Milankovitch Cycles theory of the Ice Age phenomenon was the first major historic climate theory postulated in the 1920s on the erroneous assumption that the Sun is an invariable constant for all climate considerations. The theory predates the Manmade Global Warming theory by half a century, which is based on the same false assumption, as are many other similar theories. In this sense the Milankovitch Cycles theory represents them all, which are but regurgitations of the same basic false assumption.
In searching for an Ice Age cause, while denying the real cause, the Milankovitch Cycles theory trapped itself into the assumption, that the Earth's 3 minute orbital variations over long periods ranging from 26,000 to 100,000 years-cycles, are the cause for the Ice Age cycles resulting from hemispheric and seasonal variations of the exposure of the Earth to the Sun, even while it is self-evident that the total energy received from the Sun remains the same in every case, which renders the Milankovitch Cycles theory a paradox in itself.
Paradoxes are encountered when the real cause for a phenomenon is ignored or denied, like the measured variable Sun is ignored that is being expressed in corresponding climate fluctuations on Earth. The Manmade Global Warming theory is the most modern of these types of paradoxes that mistake effect for cause and deny the real cause, for which the classical case is the Milankovitch Cycles theory.
Text from the video:
We now face consequences of cosmic phenomena that most of humanity has been taught to believe will never happen. Society is stuck in this blindness for the lack of understanding of the principles that affect our climate, including the next Ice Age that is generally believed to be still thousands of years distant.
Most of humanity has trapped itself into believing in these types of small-minded concepts. Scientists have latched onto the notion that the Sun is too big to change, so that climate variations on Earth, including the Ice Ages, are deemed to be caused purely by Earth-centered factors, such as by changing orbital variations of the Milankovitch cycles theory, or ocean currents variations, and air currents, volcanic activity, greenhouse gases, and similar factors.
As scientists became trapped into mechanistic, small-minded perceptions, they have closed their eyes to the one overriding factor that is bigger than everything. This overriding factor is the solar factor. The Sun is the biggest climate factor by far, and almost the only climate factor. It is immensely causative, and it is also immensely variable. That's what we have to face and respond to.
Scientists have been recruited to close their eyes, and to focus not on the Sun as it actually is, but on small things. They have been taught the widely promoted assumption that the Sun is its own master, a giant nuclear fusion furnace that is isolated from the universe and is incapable of fast variation.
In the background of this small thinking, the dogma was developed that the Sun is an invariable constant for all climate considerations, including the Ice Ages. The dogma dictates, that because the Sun does not change, all climate changes without exceptions must necessarily be caused by factors other than the Sun.
As the result, scientists have become a living paradox. They close their eyes to what science has revealed to be true based on physically measured evidence, and believe instead in the opposite.
Evidence of the variable Sun
A wide array of physically measured evidence, both modern and historically, has established as an undeniable fact that the Sun is the big and only climate factor on Earth, and that the Sun IS changing rapidly, enormously, and has been changing throughout history in numerous measurable ways.
Wow! Let's back-up a bit here, and start at the beginning.
It is a well-established fact that the period of the deep cooling of the Earth in the 1600s, which was the period of the Little Ice Age, had been a period of extremely low solar activity. Sunspot numbers had been carefully recorded at the time. It was noted that for nearly a century almost no sunspots were seen on the surface of the Sun. This period of extremely low, and almost no visible solar activity in terms of sunspots, is referred today as the Maunder Minimum.
Then, suddenly, as is clearly visible in the sunspot numbers counted, the Sun had changed in the 1700s. The Maunder Minimum suddenly ended. In the early 1700s the sunspots were back in big numbers, and with the increasing sunspot numbers the climate on Earth began to warm up dramatically. With the rapid revival of the solar activity, the Little Ice Age was over. With this revival of the Sun, a long period of global warming began.
It has also become possible in recent time to physically measure the intensity of historic solar activity by other means than counting sunspot numbers, and to go farther back in time than the sunspot numbers were recorded.
Part 2 - Measuring Historic Solar Activity in Proxy
It became possible to measure historic solar activity in proxy, by measuring the changing ratio of two rare radioisotopes, that of carbon-14 and of berillium-10. The density of these isotopes in historic samples, stands as a proxy for the solar activity at the time, because the Sun, and only the Sun, had generated the isotopes in the Earth's atmosphere, which happens when solar cosmic-ray flux interacts with the Earth's atmospheric nitrogen, for example. The density of the Sun-produced isotopes thereby fluctuates with changing solar activity. The fluctuation can be measured.
When our Sun, which is a plasma sun, is weak, it has a weak sphere of plasma around it. The plasma shield blocks a portion of the cosmic ray flux that is generated in the Sun's plasma fusions cells on the solar surface. This means that a weak Sun allows a larger volume of solar cosmic-ray flux to penetrate the barrier, which generate larger amounts of the c-14 and be-10 isotopes in the atmosphere on Earth.
The Solar Cosmic-Ray Flux IS the primary climate-forcing factor on Earth
The measured and the plotted isotope ratios, like the recorded sunspot numbers, prove concretely that the Sun is a highly variable climate factor. The measured evidence indicates that when the solar activity is weak, the Earth is correspondingly cold, which is known from climate records of the respective periods.
Inversely, when the Sun was ramped up in the early 1700s, the Earth became progressively warmer. The up-ramped Sun gave us a nearly 300 years of Global Warming on Earth.
The warming of the Earth, ironically, was not caused by the Sun getting hotter. It was caused by the stronger Sun emitting less solar cosmic radiation. This resulted in less cloudiness and warmer climates.
In this manner the coincidence of the historic isotope measurements with known historic climate records, prove our Sun to be tremendously changeable, and to be in fact the climate master of the Earth by changing solar activity becoming expressed in changing solar cosmic-ray flux that immensely affects our climate in a wide range of effects, such as when the global warming by the up-ramped Sun had ended the Little Ice Age.
The solar global warming had lasted all the way into the late 1990s and then ended and became reversed, when the solar activity began to diminish again. The reversal is not shown here, because it happened after the isotope ratios became invalid in 1945 in the wake of the nuclear bombing and bomb testing that added a new source for the radio-isotope production in the atmosphere.
Another radio-isotope that is produced in the atmosphere by solar cosmic-ray flux, is berillium-10. The measurements of the production ratio of the berillium-10 isotope, which is preserved in historic samples, gives us one more means to measure solar activity. In this case the changing measured isotope ratio change sharply with the solar cycles, and agree remarkably close with the changing sunspot number counts.
However, the isotope ratios tell us something extremely important that the sunspot numbers don't. The isotope ratios tell us that the big climate changes on the Earth are the direct result of changing solar cosmic-ray flux that changes inversely with the intensity of solar activity. In other words, it is the solar cosmic-ray flux that is affecting the Earth and its climate in a big way.
Critical evidence that the sunspot numbers do not reveal
It has since been discovered by other types of measurements that the radiated solar energy does not change with changing solar activity. The energy radiation fluctuates a mere 7/100th of a percent.
The measured fact tells us that the immense cooling during the Little Ice Age periods, such as that of the 1600s in which agricultures had collapsed so extensively that 10% to 30% of the population in Europe starved to death, had been exclusively the result of very large increases of solar cosmic-ray flux affecting the Earth, that is typical for an extremely weak Sun, such as we had when no sunspots could be seen.
That the cosmic-ray increase was tremendously large in the 1600s is evident in the extremely large berillum-10 volume from that period.
Note: The isotope ratio is inversely plotted in this graphic so that the large isotope ratios do visibly coincide with the known historic cold climate conditions. The two deep-reaching spikes just prior to the 1700s, coincide with 30 years of no sunspots at all in the last part of the Maunder Minimum of the Little Ice Age.
Beyond Theory stands measured reality
The solar forcing of our climate is not fantasy. It is measured as solar history, and it corresponds with historic climate records. The agreement is a simple case of cause and effect.
The measured solar facts are important for understanding the modern climate collapse, which needs to be understood in terms of increasing solar cosmic-ray volumes that now begin to occur under the weakening Sun, which are affecting our climate evermore in the unfolding boundary zone to the next Ice Age.
We have measured huge changes in solar activity during the last 400 years. We have measured large activity increases during the global warming period, and even larger activity decreases during the boundary zone. We have also measured corresponding changes in solar cosmic-ray flux that agree closely with the experienced changing climates. The connection of the Sun with our climate on Earth has thereby become an established fact, by real physical measurements.
When the lights go out in the house, the house goes dark.
When solar activity diminishes, the Earth becomes colder.
When the lights are turned on, the house becomes brighter.
When solar activity increases, the Earth becomes warmer.
All the climate and Ice Age theories that ignore the Sun as the causative climate factor have been rendered by the contrary measured facts to be but speculative theories without a foundation to stand on.
Part 3 - Changing Solar Activity, Measured in Real-Time, in Proxy
The historically established facts didn't change in the 1940s when nuclear bomb testing, and nuclear war, created a new source for the radio isotopes that were previously produced exclusively by the Sun. The resulting loss of the measurable proxies for solar activity was overcome with a number of new forms of measuring solar activity. These new measurements, of course, were not drawn from historic samples, but were made in real time, both in space and on the ground.
Real-time measurements of solar activity after 1945
Solar-wind pressure (measured in space)
Solar cosmic-ray flux (measured in space)
Solar magnetic fields (measured in space)
Solar radio-flux intensity (measured on the ground)
Neutron-flux density (measured in the atmosphere)
These new types of measurements do not detract from the historic measurements. They add to the proof that the Sun is changing and is massively affecting our climate, and with it our agricultures and our food production.
The result of these measurements takes us far out of the fantasy world of mainstream cosmology that regards the Sun as an invariable constant, and regards climate change as manmade. The real-time physical measurements reflect the principles that link climate change to solar activity.
With the modern measurements now made in real time, we find the measurements reflected in real-time climate affects. Some of these now increasing real-time effects are already so extensive that they have begun to affect agricultural food production in quite a few places of the world.
In the case shown here a massive winter blizzard had blanketed the North American grain belt with snow and deep sub-zero temperatures in spring 2018, with massive snow being dumped as late as April when spring planting should have been half completed, and from which frosts may be lingering into May. Such effects, though they are not critical yet, do shorten the growing season, and may, in the years ahead, become dramatically critical.
Furthermore, when these measured and experienced real-time effects are being projected forward, the Sun becomes recognized, evermore surprisingly by the unfolding dynamics as not just being merely a variable star, but as being a fast-collapsing, existentially critical, climate factor for our very living on the Earth.
Wow! Let's back up here. Let's take a closer look at the modern real-time measurements and what they are telling us.
Two of the new types of physical measurements that were conducted in space, were conducted by the NASA and ESO Ulysses spacecraft that had measured the Sun directly from a wide polar orbit. It measured the solar activity as it happened, and 'saw' it diminishing, and not just a little. Its measurements indicate that the solar activity, in terms of solar wind pressure, was diminishing at the amazingly fast rate of 30% per decade from the late 1990s onward, till 2008 at the end of the mission.
This enormous dropping off in solar activity is possible by the fact that the Sun is located within a complex dynamic system of interstellar plasma streams that power its operation. These plasma streams are focused onto the Sun by electromagnetic primer fields that form naturally by simple physical principles.
As the concentrated plasma that is built up around the Sun, fluctuates in density as the result of numerous resonance effects within the system, the solar activity fluctuates accordingly. That's the principle.
The Little Ice Age was created on this basis, and it was terminated by global warming on this same basis, which in turn became reversed again by the now on-going collapse of solar activity - all by the same principle.
If one projects this rate of collapse of the solar-wind pressure forward in time, the interstellar powering of the Sun will have diminished to the point that the solar wind that is flowing from the Sun stops in the early 2030s. When the powering of the Sun diminishes further, the solar surface temperature will necessarily begin to diminish as the next 'shoe' begins to drop. That's big!What we see happening here are enormously large effects. Now let's considering that we are presently only half-way down that slope, even while the climate effects are already becoming 'monsters' in some cases.
The Ulysses spacecraft had also measured the solar cosmic-ray flux during its mission, and it 'saw' it increasing by 20% over the same timeframe, and it further measured the underlying solar magnetic field, which it saw diminishing by 30%. These too, are enormous changes in solar activity, which too, are bound to have corresponding climate effects.
Ulysses 'flew' three orbits around the Sun, from 1995 to 2008, which covered in time the entire solar cycle 23, from start to finish. The solar wind pressure had collapsed 30% over this timeframe.
The 30% rate of collapse is also reflected in the diminishing solar cycles themselves, which evidently began before and continued after the timeframe of the Ulysses mission.
Other types of measurement likewise indicate that the solar activity continued to diminish past the termination of the Ulysses mission, and continues so all the way to the present. This too is physical reality measured in real time.
One of the continuing measurements is conducted by solar radio observatories in the 10.7 cm band. The 10.7 cm Solar Flux is currently one of the best indices of solar activity that we have. It covers more than 50 years of direct measurements. Only the sunspot number counts cover a longer period. In comparing the two, a linear relationship between the 10.7cm Solar Flux and the sunspot numbers becomes evident.
The dramatic collapse of the solar activity that Ulysses had observed, between the start and end of solar cycle 23, is seen to continue on in the diminishing solar radio-flux measurements in the 10.7 centimetre band. The measurements went way above 200 radio flux units at the peak of previous solar cycles, but for the peak of the last solar cycle, cycle 24, the radio solar observatories measured only half of the historic peak flux. A researcher, in referring to these measurements, commented, "the Sun is dying."
The researcher wrote,
"because the Sun is operating at half power already you can expect the Sun dying when the full solar minimum hits in 2024. The Sun/Earth will not recover from this. From this year (2018) forward, every year will become colder. Leave Europe within 3 years, before all borders close.?"(Marc C.)
Is this type of comment justified by the measurements? Just look at the latest measured ratio. At the peak of the current solar cycle, in 2014 - a weak cycle to begin with - the solar flux was measured as 170 units. Now in 2018, a mere 4 years later, the solar flux was measured at 68.9 units. That's a 60% drop. That's huge for such a short time, and more so if one considers that we are still potentially as much as 6 years away from the lowest point of the current solar cycle.

What does it all mean? Does it mean, the sky is falling? No, the world is not in a crisis yet.
The boundary zone to the next Ice age covers a lengthy period that can be divided into three consecutive phases.
The 1st phase is the phase in which the weakening of the Sun - of the entire system that powers the Sun - becomes expressed in diminishing solar-wind pressure, while the Sun's surface temperature remains constant.
How is this possible?
The near constant solar surface temperature of the diminishing Sun is possible, because the solar wind is comparable to a boiling kettle venting off steam.
It is not possible to heat water in a kettle hotter than 100 degrees at sea-level altitude. When more heat is applied to the kettle, the excess heat converts water into steam, which is vented into the air.
In a similar manner on the Sun, when the plasma pressure onto the Sun - which is its energy input - exceeds what the fusions cells on its surface require for the plasma-fusion process, the excess plasma pressure is simply vented back into space and becomes the solar wind. This means that for as long as the solar wind keeps flowing, there is enough plasma density in the system to keep the Sun 'fully' powered. This also means inversely, that when the solar wind is diminishing, the entire dynamic system that powers the Sun, which focuses plasma unto the Sun, is getting weaker, whereby less solar wind is vented.
This type of weakening happens throughout Phase-1 in the boundary zone. The radio-flux that is measured with radio telescopes, reflects in general the intensity of the active processes by which the solar wind is being generated. The diminishing solar wind, tells us that the entire active system is getting progressively weaker, and that the escaping solar cosmic-ray flux, that affects the climate on Earth, is getting larger, with the climate effects getting larger too.
Every change in solar activity affects the climate on Earth. This influence is almost exclusively the result of the effects caused by solar cosmic-ray flux in the Earth's atmosphere. The influence is dramatic, and it increases with diminishing solar activity.
The solar wind itself does not have a significant effect on the climate on Earth. Its is slow moving plasma, in the order of 800 Km/sec., while cosmic-rays are fast moving, high-energy plasma particles with enough punch to have that major effect on cloud nucleation.
Cosmic-rays are single events of highly-energized plasma particles, primarily protons, that escape the solar fusion cells and then penetrate the plasma sphere around the Sun where most of the escaping plasma particles become trapped. The few that are not trapped escape into space as solar cosmic-ray flux. When the escaping cosmic-ray flux interacts with the Earth's atmosphere, it affects the cloud-forming process enormously, by way of cosmic-ray ionization. Ionized air is 100-times more attractive for the cloud nucleation process than non-ionized air. As the result of the ionization, cloud aerosols form more readily, and condense more readily into water droplets, by which the clouds rain out.
As a consequence of increased cloudiness, the Earth is getting colder. The white top of the clouds reflect a portion of the incoming sunlight back into space. More clouds reflect more sunlight away. The reflected energy is lost to us. The Earth invariably becomes colder in an accumulative process. This type of increased cooling by the weakening Sun is evermore evident in recent times all over the world in the forms of increased snowfall, frosts, late blizzards, and so on.
The increased rain-out of the clouds also reduces the water transport distance by the clouds. Droughts are formed by this process, and in some cases the enhanced rain-out also causes floods.
The lower portion of the troposphere may contain as much as 4% of its volume in the form of water vapor. If all of that was turned to water, the land would be covered 100 feet deep in water. Normally only a minuscule portion condenses into clouds. But when a major cosmic-ray shower erupts, typically through coronal holes on the Sun, cloud nucleation can be dramatically increased and generate flash floods right in the midst of a drought.
Such an event occurred in Texas in 2015. After years of drought, flash floods erupted from Texas all the way north to Canada. These types of effects are typically produced by large solar cosmic-ray events.
This is how changing solar activity becomes expressed in large climate anomalies on Earth, because the anomalies are caused by the effects of changing cosmic-ray flux. In fact, changing cosmic-ray flux is presently the only driver for climate changes on Earth, with a few minor exceptions. Enormous climate effects can be caused by changing solar cosmic-ray flux while the Sun's surface temperature remains solidly constant.
