the Grand Solar Minimum & Getting Prepared
#1
This probably needs to be placed in the International Politics Section, but for right now I'll keep it here.  China has been making important moves in other countries, but Big Time in Africa.  And its all about climate and feeding the masses.  David at Adapt 2030 sets the stage today with this post and Everyone should play close attention, because it affects the world.

This is a Must Watch!!

Global Peak Wheat Production Has Arrived What It Means For You (798)


For the past few years, the MSM has been reporting on how the Chinese have been investing heavily in Africa, and other places where agriculture will be less affected by the coming cooler climate.  Remember all the empty apartment complexes, all over Africa?  And add to all this the fact that PRC is about to take over a major seaport in Kenya, due to their inability to repay their loans.  

China To Take Over Kenya's Largest Port Over Unpaid Chinese Loan

Now, why is this taking place?  Note the map and you can see that Kenya is at the midpoint of that continent, and the perfect location for funneling their crops and natural resources, as they are moved to the mother country.

And naturally the MSM thinks they know why China is doing what it is doing, right?  Take this article by the WaPo, where they see some of the benefits of Chinese investment, but are not looking at the strategic, long term, reason.  Its like they have no idea that we are entering a Grand Solar Minimum.

Quote:China is often lambasted as a nefarious actor in its African dealings, but the evidence tells a more complicated story. Chinese loans are powering Africa, and Chinese firms are creating jobs. China’s agricultural investment is far more modest than reported and welcomed by some Africans. China may boost Africa’s economic transformation, or they may get it wrong — just as American development efforts often go awry.

But here is a Bloomberg article that has a much better idea as to why China is doing what it is doing.

The Farmers' Almanac is laying things out for all to see, and it ain't pretty.

Quote:Bundle up and hunker down.

That's the advice from the editors of the Farmers' Almanac, which has been pumping out long-range weather predictions since 1818.

“Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” editor Peter Geiger said in a Tuesday statement on the company's website as they released their winter prediction.

That means "bitterly cold winter conditions" from the Rockies to the Appalachians, with "the most freefalling, frigid temperatures" forecast from the northern Plains into the Great Lakes.

"The Northeast, including the densely populated corridor running from Washington to Boston, will experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter. Only the western third of the country will see near-normal winter temperatures, which means fewer shivers for them."

According to their prediction, the coldest stretch of winter will hit in the final week of January and last through the beginning of February.

And snow, oh the snow.

"The Almanac calls for above-normal winter precipitation over the eastern third of the country as well as the Great Plains, Midwest, and the Great Lakes. The Pacific Northwest and Southwest should see near-normal precipitation. With colder-than-normal temperatures in the Northeast and above-normal precipitation expected, our outlook forewarns of not only a good amount of snow, but also a wintry mix of rain, sleet — especially along the coast," the Almanac predicts.

To be even more specific, the Almanac says the eastern half of the country will be deluged by "copious amounts" of snow, rain, sleet, and ice between January 4 - January 7 and January 12- January 15, along with "strong and gusty winds."

"And for those who live northeast of the Texas Panhandle to the western Great Lakes, watch out for what could prove to be a memorable storm producing hefty snows for the Great Plains during the third week of January," the publication notes.

Winter will also be long — very long.

"According to our long-range outlook, spring will be slow to start with winter lingering across the Midwest, Great Lakes, Northeast, and New England. Occasional wet snow and unseasonably chilly conditions will hang on for a ride that you may not be able to get off until April!" the Almanac says.

The Almanac has been using a set of parameters set up in 1818 by David Young, the Almanac’s first editor. "These rules have been altered slightly and turned into a formula that is both mathematical and astronomical. The formula takes into consideration things like sunspot activity, tidal action of the Moon, the position of the planets, and a variety of other factors," the Almanac says.

And the editors claim they usually hit the mark with their predictions.

"Though weather forecasting, and long-range forecasting, in particular, remains an inexact science, many longtime Almanac followers claim that our forecasts are 80% to 85% accurate."

Moscow is feeling the effects of the upcoming GSM, and records are being broken.

Quote:MOSCOW SHIVERS THROUGH ITS COLDEST SUMMER IN RECORDED HISTORY, IN OVER 150 YEARS OF DATA

Muscovites are shivering-through what will almost certainly be (with less than 2 days to go) their coldest August in recorded history. Furthermore, daily all-time low temperature records continue to fall across the Russian Federation, joining the myriad already set in 2019.

The coldest August in record-books stretching back over 150 years is currently gripping the city, with an average air temperature of just 12C (53.6F) –some 6C below the norm– being reported by themoscowtimes.com.

Moscow’s previous coldest August was way back in 1884, when the average air temperature for the month was 4C below the norm.

According to www.hmn.ru, this August in Moscow has been characterized by unusual weather in terms of not only the cold, but also of abundant rainfall and a chronic lack of sunshine.

In addition, many daily all-time low temperature records have been tumbling across Russia of late, particularly in eastern regions, with the latest being on Kolguev Island, where the low of -1.6C (29.1F) observed on August 26 comfortably busted the old record of 0.5C (32.9F) set 36 years ago (during the solar minimum of cycle 21).

This year's cooling seems to be accelerating more than last year, and will probably be even more next year.  For instance..............

Quote:GREENLAND FORECAST TO BE AS MUCH 16C BELOW AVERAGE FOR THE MAJORITY OF SEPTEMBER

Starting tomorrow, Sept 6, a series of cold air masses looks set to engulf practically ALL of Greenland for the remainder of September — it’ll be worth checking-in on the DMI’s “Latest Greenland Ice Sheet Totals” chart over the next few weeks (located in the sidebar of Electroverse) for the associated spikes.

Temperatures across the entire island are forecast to hold as much as 16C below average from Sept 06 until at least Sept 21, with heavy snow (18+ inches) expected in the south.

I always think about the naming of Iceland and Greenland, since they are the opposite of how they should be named.

Iceland is much warmer than Greenland, and Greenland is one giant iceberg.

If I recall history correctly, this was done so as to attract settlers. Also, keep in mind that the climate was warmer than today, so the two places were more alluring.

It looks like the 'All-Time Lows' are increasing, regardless what the Warmists keep predicting. One of the sites I frequent has several examples in just two days. 

This one is right up the road from me:
HENDERSON, NORTH CAROLINA SETS NEW ALL-TIME DAILY LOW TEMPERATURE RECORD FOR SEPT 20 IN BOOKS DATING BACK TO 1893

Quote:During what the MSM would have you believe was an extreme and unprecedented bout of heat over the eastern U.S. last week, a myriad of all-time cold records still somehow managed to fall.

According to official NOAA data, a new daily Lowest Minimum Temperature for September 20 was set at Hednerson, NC last week when the mercury sank to an AGW-narrative-wrecking 2.2C (36F).

This reading destroyed the previous record low of 5C (41F) set back in 1916, and is now the coldest the city of Henderson has ever been on Sept 20 in books dating back to 1893.

In addition, a further five new all-time daily Lowest Minimum Temperature records were set across the U.S. on Sept 20, including two in the neighboring state of Virginia — these were the 7.8C (46F) at Wakefield, which busted the previous record low of 8.9C (48F) set in 1997 (solar minimum of cycle 22). And the 7.8C (46F) at Wallops Island NASA Test Facility, which surpassed the old record of 9.4C (49F) set in 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23).

And out West,
MONROE, WA BREAKS ITS ALL-TIME SEPTEMBER LOW TEMPERATURE RECORD TWICE IN TWO DAYS

Quote:
Even before the forecast Arctic blast brings plunging temps and early season snow to the Northwest this weekend, towns and cities in the region have already been busy busting all-time cold records, much to the MSM’s chagrin. We’ve reported on a few of late, now here’s another:

According to official NOAA data, a new Lowest Minimum Temperature for the month of September was set at Monroe, WA on Tues, Sept 17. The mercury dipped to -1.7C (29F) which busted the previous record low of -1.1C (30F) set back in 1970.

Furthermore, that previous record low was broken for a second time just a day later, when the temperature again hit the -1.7C (29F) mark on Wed, Sept 18.

Those two readings of -1.7C are now in the books as the coldest September temperatures ever recorded in the city of Monroe, WA since it began keeping official records back in 1929.


In addition, a new daily Minimum Low Temperature record was set at Monroe on Fri, Sept 20 in 90 years of data. Last week’s -1.1C (30F) comfortably toppled the old record of 1.7C (35F) set back in 1983 (and would of tied the previous monthly record low from 1970, too).


The cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar activity:

But look what's just right around the corner;
MODELS GAIN CONFIDENCE: CANADA AND WESTERN U.S. ON COURSE FOR HISTORIC LATE SEPTEMBER SNOWSTORMS

[Image: US-historic-Sept-Snow-2.jpg?w=448&ssl=1]

Quote:
According to latest runs, we’re now just 42hrs out from the first wave of Arctic air hitting SE Canada/NW U.S., which, by the end of Fri, Sept 27, is expected to have engulfed large swathes of Canada as well as practically all of the Western U.S.

All-time monthly cold records are under-threat in central and southern Canada, as well as in the U.S. states of Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Wyoming, N. & S. Dakota, Nebraska and even Kansas.

Temperature departures are set to be a staggering 20+C below normal in some spots:

The Arctic air will deliver a potent weather front, too.

Heavy and persistent snow, even blizzard conditions, are expected in the higher elevations of Montana, in particular. More than 60 inches (5 ft) could accumulate here, making for potentially all-time record breaking September snow totals.

The Weather Network has called this, “a significant snow threat”.

KTVH went with the headline, “Record Breaking Snowstorm Likely This Weekend“, and report that, “a WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for the Glacier region and the Rocky Mountain Front for Friday evening through Sunday.”

This could be big:

But even Down-Under is not immune:
HEAVY, LOW-LEVEL SNOW BURIES LARGE PARTS OF NEW ZEALAND’S SOUTH ISLAND

Quote:Many North Canterbury roads were turned white on Wednesday after heavy snow and hailstones buried the region known for its grassy plains, clear lakes and snow-capped mountains.

Although forecasters had warned of snow, hail and thunderstorms for the middle part of this week, the magnitude of the flurries took many by surprise.

The snow was substantial enough to close sections of the Lewis Pass, which connects Canterbury to the West Coast — state Highway 7 was closed just before 6pm. While State Highway 94 was closed throughout Wednesday and is expected to remain closed for most of Thursday.

And this is still just September!  Shock

Quote:Winterlike storm unleashing feet of snow, life-threatening conditions in northwestern US

Snow will continue to pile up and roadways will remain treacherous for travel as a storm unleashes an early winter blast in the northwestern United States through Sunday.

Winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings and/or high wind warnings were in effect for all five states in the northwestern United States as the snowstorm began to take shape on Saturday.

Forecasters warned that the early wintry blast could be "historic" for the Northwest and southern Canada due to the combination of heavy wet snow, strong winds and bitter cold expected.

[Image: page-98.jpg?w=632]

Residents who are left in the dark will face subfreezing temperatures with AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures approaching zero F in some areas. These bitterly cold conditions are expected to last for days after the storm.

The heaviest amount of snow, 2-3 feet (60-91 cm), with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 65 inches (122 cm) is forecast along the east-facing slopes of the Sawtooth, Flathead and Lewis and Clark ranges in Montana.

However, a general 1-2 feet (30-60 cm) of snow will fall over the mountains with anywhere from a bit of slush to several inches of snow at low elevations. This includes some of the valley floors in central and eastern Montana and British Columbia and the High Plains and Prairies of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

By Saturday afternoon, local time, snowfall in Browning, Montana, nearly reached 2 feet, measuring 23 inches.

This the worst type of snow to clear because it is wet and heavy.

Ok, here is comes Sports Fans.  The GSM is on the way south.  If you are living in the Mid-West, "There be heaps" of the white stuff coming directly to you.

[Image: NA-OCT-COLD-2-e1570451335733.png?w=563&ssl=1]

Quote:DOCUMENTING EARTH CHANGES DURING THE NEXT GSM AND POLE SHIFT

Historic winter weather will descend deep into North America this weekend, with the northern plains and the northwestern corn belt on course to be absolutely BURIED.

Snow totals as high as FOUR FEET are expected in the Midwest, with the snow line possibly even encroaching as far south as New Mexico and Texas. While reports from Canada reveal that the cold and snow is already grinding harvests to a “virtual standstill” up there.
-----
Again due to the later growing season this year, analysts say the 2019 production numbers won’t be in until January 2020 or perhaps even later.

According to the National Weather Service, winter storm watches are in effect across the Midwest this weekend. Up to FOUR FEET of early season snow is expected, which arrives on the heels of the historic totals that fell just two weeks ago (which NOAA still hasn’t release the data on btw).


The cold times are returning, in line with historically low solar activity.

Here's this from yesterday's "Electroverse.com", showing the increasing record lows beginning to pile up.

Another year or two, like this one, and everyone will Know that the AGW manure is just that,......Manure.
S22

Quote:JUST COUNT THE COLD RECORDS THAT FELL OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS!

NOAA won’t want to hear it –I have doubts they’ll even log it — but buckets of low temperature records have tumbled across the United States over the past 24 hours.

According to ‘unofficial’ data compiled by coolwx.com, a plague of new all-time cold records spread across Western & Central U.S. on Friday, October 11. An embarrassment of riches for the cold hunters, almost as embarrassing as that paltry handful of heat records which fell in the Southeast:

[Image: cold-records-US-OCt-11.gif?w=640&ssl=1]

HUNDREDS-more low temperature records WILL fall this weekend, as the forecast violent kink in the jet stream –associated with low solar activity– diverts even colder Arctic air to the lower latitudes.

This pattern in early fall is unprecedented, as are the snow totals expected over the coming days:

Grain futures shot up in Friday’s trading as a result, with wheat touching highs not seen since July; soon after that bogus “can-kicking” USDA report was released.

If there is any indicator of what is yet to come, this should be It.  I wonder how many in Africa, and the Third World will be starving to death this winter?  Shock

Quote:Record Low Temps Up To 50 Degrees Below Normal Threaten To Absolutely Wreck The Rest Of The Harvest Season

[Image: Cold-Weather-Public-Domain.jpg]

It isn’t supposed to be this cold in October.  The official start of winter is still almost two months away, and yet the weather in much of the western half of the country right now resembles what we might expect in mid-January.  All-time record lows for the month of October are being set in city after city, and this extremely cold air is going to push into the Midwest by the end of the week.  Temperatures in the heartland will be up to 50 degrees below normal, and unfortunately about half of all corn still has not been harvested.  Due to unprecedented rainfall and extreme flooding early in the year, many farmers faced extraordinary delays in getting their crops planted, and so they were hoping that good weather at the end of the season would provide time for the crops to fully mature and be harvested.  Unfortunately, a nightmare scenario has materialized instead.  A couple of monster snow storms have already roared through the Midwest, and now record low temperatures threaten to absolutely wreck the rest of the harvest season.

When temperatures get significantly below zero for more than a few hours, scientists tell us that it will kill standing corn…

Quote:A significant freeze (28°F or colder for a few hours) will kill the whole plant, and any frost will act to defoliate plants, resulting in diminished grain filling for the seeds, especially on the upper half of the plants.

And right now we are facing a crisis because less than half of all U.S. corn has been harvested.

In fact, according to the latest USDA Crop Progress Report just 41 percent of all U.S. corn has been harvested so far…

Quote:In its weekly Crop Progress Report, the USDA pegged the U.S. corn harvest at 41% complete, below the trade’s expectation of 48% and below a five-year average 61%.

Minnesota is behind the most regarding picking corn: 22% vs. a 56% five-year average.

So when I used the term “nightmare scenario” earlier, I was not exaggerating.

The low temperatures that we have seen this week are hard to believe.  According to USA Today, the temperature in one community in Utah actually hit 45 degrees below zero on Wednesday…

Quote:Subzero cold was recorded as far south as the Grand Canyon on Wednesday morning, the Weather Channel said. Big Piney, Wyoming, plunged to minus 24 degrees before sunrise Wednesday.

Notorious cold spot Peter Sinks, Utah, dipped to an incredible minus 45 degrees early Wednesday. This appeared to be the coldest October temperature on record anywhere in the Lower 48 states, according to Utah-based meteorologist Timothy Wright.

That is seriously cold.

Some experts have stated that this GSM is just that, because the Jovian planets and mars are lined up on the opposite side of the planet, from the sun.  The gravitational pulling and tugging is causing earthquakes, volcanic activity, and Lord know what else.  They all want a piece of us.
