‘Global cooling may well jeopardize grain production and threaten potential famines,’ warns Australian scientist David Archibald.
And there we’d be. Fighting in the streets for food.
‘All the warming of last 150 years will be reversed,’ says Archibald. The ‘world has entered a sharp cooling period due to lower solar activity.’
Not only is the world cooling, Archibald continues, sea level is now falling.
The ‘rate of sea level rise is controlled by solar cycles.’
In addition, ‘Global cooling may well jeopardize grain production and threaten potential famines.’
- Famines in France 1693-94, Norway 1695-96 and Sweden 1696-97 claimed roughly 10% of the population of each country.
- In Estonia and Finland in 1696-97, losses have been estimated at a fifth and a third of the national populations, respectively.
And finally, there’s the wild card, volcanic activity.
‘If a Mt Pinatubo-type eruption is overprinted on a de Vries cycle event,’ says Archibald, ‘Then we get an 1816 – type crop failure event.
1816 Event – 50% Chance
- Mt Tambora in Indonesia erupted on 10th April, 1815.
- Average global temperatures decreased by 0.4 – 0.7° C.
- On 4th June 1816, frosts were reported in Connecticut.
- On 6th June 1816, snow fell in Albany and Maine.
- Oats rose from 12 cents a bushel to 92 cents a bushel.
- For the last 500 years, major volcanic eruptions averaged 45 years apart.
- One of these could easily reduce world grain production by 400 million tonnes.
