Media starting to pick up on our Solar slowdown warnings: Food production could be hit soon.

As we’ve been warning for years on the talkshop, the incoming solar grand minimum is likely to hit world food production negatively.

Politicians and policy makers have no excuses here. They’ve been enthralled by the scientists they pay to tell them what they want to hear for years.

The voting public will be harsh judges in the aftermath of this first wave of food scarcity. The video only talks about the next five years as solar cycle 24 spins down to minimum. The harsh reality is that the problems will worsen all the way past 2035.

    Policy makers! Aye, ’nuff said. Where can I study for and get a degree in that? one of those modern Uni’s ? Laissez faire!

    If we get lower solar input for an extended period, lower temperatures seem inevitable sooner or later.

    Grand Minimum May Usher In 50 Years Of Global Cooling

    This is kind of like watching a train wreck that hasn’t quite happened yet. Last time when there was a drop in growing conditions over the North Hemisphere in the late 1970s, the Americans had 2 and a half years excess supply of grain in storage on farms. Seeing that wreck coming, the Russians and Chinese slipped in and on the quiet bought it all. When the Carter Administration discovered that the graineries were being emptied it was too late, so he stopped farmers from selling that years crop to foreigners. The grain companies that had sold all their grain expensive were able to refill their graineries on the cheap and a generation of farmers went broke, After a couple of years it warmed and rained but that vast pile of grains in storage on farms was never replaced. Today there is only 30 days of excess supply on hand…pg

    From what I’ve read about the way the last LIA progressed it is not so much the onset of the cold that caused so much disruption but lead-up with wild and uneven swings in weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere.
    Long drought of two to four years, catastrophic wide area floods, very, very fierce storms with crop destroying hail, long periods (4 months or more ) of damp overcast days, etc.
    These all hit food production massively. The sowing, growing and harvesting times were severely curtailed by weather, shortages of trained manpower, and distribution shortfalls. Millions starved all across Europe. Add to that diseases like plague, typhoid, etc., the already weaken populous was hit hard. Then relentless cold of extended winters….

    Consider how today, in this era of keeping storage low and using ‘just-in-time’ ordering, mayhem on an equal or greater amount could so easily overrun the capacity to cope in Europe, North America and Eurasia.

    No amount of CO2 mitigation measures will protect against any of that!

    Reblogged this on WeatherAction News and commented:
    I don’t think the cold will be so pronounced, as Joe B said the sun has put a lot of heat into the oceans after the grand solar maxima, however a long fetched Jetstream can cause out of season changes that easily destroy crops;
    A couple of times is bearable but when it keeps happening year after year?
