A pile of you trash me whenever I talk about Al Gore and global warming, but now, could it be – Gore is wrong and instead of global warming raising sea levels and bringing insane DESTRUCTION to the world that instead we’ll face global cooling that will bring DESTRUCTION to the world. For you see, it appears that during the month of August something happened to the sun that hasn’t happened in 100 years – zero sun spots! That’s right, can you count them with me?
There, I knew you could.
Perhaps there is some truth to this global cooling argument. Read this article on the subject. Many climatologists believe solar magnetic activity is a factor in our climate. Read:
When the sun is active, it’s not uncommon to see sunspot numbers of 100 or more in a single month. Every 11 years, activity slows, and numbers briefly drop to near-zero. Normally sunspots return very quickly, as a new cycle begins.
But this year — which corresponds to the start of Solar Cycle 24 — has been extraordinarily long and quiet, with the first seven months averaging a sunspot number of only 3. August followed with none at all.
In the past 1000 years, three previous such events — the Dalton, Maunder, and Spörer Minimums, have all led to rapid cooling. One was large enough to be called a “mini ice age”. For a society dependent on agriculture, cold is more damaging than heat. The growing season shortens, yields drop, and the occurrence of crop-destroying frosts increases.
I can attest that the summer in Maine has been relatively cool, and last winter was longer than previous winters. Sure the Farmer’s Almanac is proclaiming it’ll be a cold winter, but they always say that. It’s September now . . . and it’s relatively cool up here . . . lots of rain this summer . . . egad! Maine would’ve been destination #1 if global warming hit, but if it’s a mini-ice age coming our way . . . should I move south now before the mass exodus begins and Maine property values have plummeted from the resulting cold? Should I join what will become a heavily populated south in search of a little warmth . . or should I stay behind in the Maine tundra and wait for the Caribou to return.
That’d be cool, Caribou coming back to Maine tundra. Ironically, it was also about a century ago that Caribou were last in Maine. I could go for that. Maine property prices in the toilet means I could score a small farm on the ocean to plant row upon row of root crops and then go hunting all winter in a snow cat – lol.

U.S. strike on Iran is imminent according to Dutch intelligence that have been working with the CIA – read the article. Quote:
“The impending air-strike on Iran was to be carried out by unmanned aircraft “within weeks,” the report claimed, quoting “well placed” sources.”
According to the report, whether the United States and Western countries succeed in thwarting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions diplomatically, through sanctions, or whether a US strike on Iran is eventually decided upon, Jerusalem has begun preparing for a separate, independent military strike.
Are YOU ready for the world war Iran is promising as a response?
