Did electromagnetic phenomena trigger the plague that killed up to 80 percent of the Earth’s inhabitants”

In this video, archaeologist Peter Mungo Jupp presents the radical idea that civilization destroying plagues may be governed by electromagnetism such as cosmic rays. 

The video is entitled “Climate [Little Ice Age] and the Black Death and Volcanic activity and mutations.”

“The plague of 1348 A.D. was the greatest, most universal and mortally devastating that ever ravaged this globe! It never had a parallel either before or since,” wrote Rhodes scholar Thomas Short in 1749. “Its spread was implacable, relentless and devastating.”

Cataclysmic death rates followed from nation to nation and town to town, Rhodes continued. Perhaps as much as 80 percent of the world population perished. In some places it took 15 out of 16 inhabitants.

Compare this to the Spanish flu of 1918, when “only” two percent of the worldwide population perished.

Archaeologist and Thunderbolts colleague Peter Mungo Jupp discusses the accompanying floods, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes followed by droughts and famine and ties the entire devastation to electromagnetic phenomena.

The heavens were on fire, says Jupp. The historical observations of events at that time even artist’s depictions – strongly point to strongly point to such a conclusion

In this video, Jupp presents the radical idea that civilization destroying plagues may be governed by electromagnetism such as cosmic rays.

There is evidence, Jupp continues, that solar activity plays a role in volcanic activity on our planet. In fact, during times of low solar activity – such the current solar minimum – volcanic activity tends to rise.

The Tambora eruption in Indonesia during 1815 is connected to the unusually long period of low solar activity known as the Dalton Minimum. The following year of 1816 was unusually cold throughout the world. In fact, 1816 is now referred to as “The Year Without a Summer.”

An increase in cosmic rays may even affect the earth’s spin, Jupp continues. This could possibly affect the teluric currents couirsing through the earth (which I proposed in Not by Fire but by Ice.) Sunspot minimums could even affect bacterial growth and viruses, Jupp suggests. It could even affect biological growth of all organisms at a molecular level.

  1. Couldn’t possibly be electromagnetic “thingy”.

    Like everything else we all know it’s global warming!!

  2. I recall that the year 1816 was commemorated in New England as “Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death.” Because of the unseasonal cold. And, the following years, 1817 and 1818, were also unseasonably cold. Colder in fact than 1816. Nor was the phenomenon unique to New England, Unseasonably cold weather was recorded as far north as Montréal (and probably further north than that), up the Ottawa Valley, as far as Mattawa. And as far south as the Carolinas.
    Overseas, cold weather was also observed. In France, and, therefore, other parts of Europe as well. One may even consider if this phenomenon may have been responsible for the “first” Irish famine. Which was an short, but still exceedingly unfortunate series of crop failures, which precipitated the first instance of substantial out migration from Ireland. To England, as well as the United States and Canada. This first famine occurred circa 1823/4 to 1825.

  3. It is almost embarrassing to confess I go to CBC and CBS daily just to remind myself what an idiot I once was.
    Here, on IceAgeNow, I find NEWS. New concepts, new knowledge, new hope that finally humans are getting a grip on understanding the earth we live on and the universe it floats in.
    Thank you Robert and company.

  4. This theory may be very possible and plausible. I do not think the idea so radical, frankly. Could it be that this is what is happening again right now in our own time? Possibly. I don’t want to get into all of the controversy surrounding COVID-19 which has become highly politicalized, sadly. But, here we are in a period of low sunspot activity and increasing volcanic eruptions and quite possibly the stage is set once again for a modern “plague.” That, of course, would be absolutely devastating for global society today. What is beginning to highly concern me, however, is the emerging new variants of the virus and that those variants are more contagious and more deadly. This virus is smart and obviously it is bent on its own self survival. Can you imagine if 80% of the global population today died of a modern “plague”? Devastation would reign everywhere.

    Look at all of the “wild weather” we have been experiencing of late along with the increasing volcanic eruptions (above ground and under the oceans), and the increase in earthquake activity. The growing droughts and mega-droughts also concern me. I live in the American Southwest where we are now in a mega-drought and I’ve never seen anything like this in all of my years living here. Seasonal rains that we have always counted on have not come and the ground is so dry that what little rainfall we do get is sucked up like a sponge. Western US states are now considering water rationing and restrictions. Trees and vegetation are dying from lack of rainfall. This is becoming a “dead zone” I fear. Add all of this up and what comes next? Famine? Disease? We may be closer to these than we might like to think.

    Robert I recall your writing about the teluric currents coursing through the earth as proposed in your book “Not be Fire but by Ice” which I read when it was first published. It is also very possible that low sunspot activity could indeed affect bacterial growth and virus emergence as well. I realize everyone, including myself, wants to return to “normal” but we may be in bigger trouble than we think. I don’t want to think about it but I fear this “pandemic” may be far from over, unfortunately. In fact, it might just be getting started! Time will tell…very soon I suspect.

  5. Good thought provoking article. Though there is a mix up in the timelines of some if the historical events. The Rhodes scholarship started in 1902…….

  6. That is a plausible and intriguing theory. What’s the saying about coincidences? If one comes across a coincidence, check one’s premises, as they are rarely by accident.

    I bought your books years ago, Robert, and you proved to be dead on. Earth is entering a new Ice Age. Time for me to move south, I reckon. I dawdled for too long.

    Thank you ever so much for your warning.

  7. Everyone should read “The Invisible Rainbow” by Arthur Firstenberg, MD, Ph.D. He links telegraphy, cell phones, TV, electrification rates, etc. with disease outbreaks.

  8. Isn’t it strange that we are discovering all this just in time to have our civilzation destroyed to the ground. How many times has this happened before?

    Reminds me of “Nightfall” by Isaac Asimov.

    • Sassy Shady Lady… if anyone, you’ll survive all this business with bells on, guaranteed.

  9. Deb- Yes, absolutely. If you get SiriusXM, it gets played infrequently on the Radio Classics channel.

  10. I do like the way the history of solar changes is laid out. However, do we need “virolent pathogens” to play the part of the villain? Why can’t the radiation, in all it’s toxic abilities, be the cause of the deaths while the microbes just do their natural thing and clean up the dead waste?
