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 world climate is steadily headed downward, as this new GSM is making its start.  The Northern Hemisphere is beginning the decline, and the news channels are slowly beginning to pay attention.

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.
