It's Not Global Warming

It's a Grand Solar Minimum. The Sun goes through 11 year cycles with a solar maximum, then a solar minimum. The solar minimum is characterized by a lack of sun spot activity. Every once in awhile the solar minimums intensify and lengthen, called a Grand Solar Minimum. Most noted was the Maunder Minimum, which lasted about 70 years from 1640-1715. This period was noted for crop failures and famine. It's often referred to as the mini ice age. That doesn't mean glaciers coming down from the north but colder temps, big snow events, shorter growing seasons. Also in the 1800's was the Dalton minimum. And it appears we're entering a new grand solar minimum, estimated to possibly last until 2100. Technology may pull us through it, but it may be a disaster that kills much of the planet's population due to food shortages, and possible wars caused by the shortages. The cooling climate is why you don't hear much about global warming anymore, just climate change. And the intense snow storms we may see? They've experienced them in the 1800's and early 1900's too. I believe it was 1916 that New York State experienced a 37 day snow event. It's going to take some convincing to change the minds of the AOC's and IWBF's of the world, but if you research it you'll see this isn't speculation, it's happened before with regularity. All apart of what makes the climate tick, only this time with over 7 billion people.

Are you saying we are headed for a mini- ice age?

They are referred to as that but it's not a true ice age. This year saw extreme wet conditions in the Midwest that delayed planting for corn and soybeans in most of the area. And a record snowstorm just killed most of that immature crop in the Dakotas and western Minnesota. Cold air causing freezes affected Nebraska and Iowa too. Just as the farmers were wanting to start harvesting what could be harvested the rains came back, making fields too muddy to combine. The conditions are making it impossible to till the soil in many areas, which means the soil won't be properly conditioned for planting next spring. And long term forecasts are showing a very wet Spring in those areas in 2020. Other parts of the world are experiencing similar events. Might not be a problem for awhile, but enough years like this and it will get very serious.

Holy crap, you solved the mystery!

Nobel Prize time.
I didn't solve anything. This is known by climate scientists already but certain politicians are running with the CO2 story because it's their dream of a centrally controlled government to "save the planet" which means social justice through socialism.

Dear Leader gave farmers more money (twice as much) than President Obama gave to the auto industry. The difference is, this is a self inflected wound.

Of course, Dear Leaders payouts were selective, not to family farmers, and the average farm worker makes a fraction of what an auto worker makes.

You are such a sucker, for someone with a yuge IQ.

This has nothing to do with farmers' payouts. And it's not a problem that'll be solved by just giving a group more money.

She already said she's working on it and should be fixed after the move to the new server.
Your status is out of date.
We have been on the new server since last Sunday night and it bombed and crashed the server.
The developer is working on it and hopefully a fix will be included in a future maintenance release.
I used Google search as a work-around and by putting ‘brown cafe’ and the forum (current events) in the search, I found the thread I was looking for.

I broke the search while trying to clean up on the admin side. I tried to regenerate the search index but the file got so big it knocked the site offline. :wince:

We're moving to the new server on Monday. The latest version of xenforo will be installed whenever the tech guy that does that for us has time to do it. Probably early next week. I'll have him fix the search too.
She posted that yesterday

I've run into other people predicting the same things. Also some who think that the greenhouse gases we've released might help mitigate the cooling. It would be wise to start planning to farm currently non-arable land as it starts to become arable with the increased rains.
