The change from Ice to warm age took only a decade (or less?).64 See Figure 7A. This must have proven nearly as disastrous for humans as for the megafauna that were driven to extinction. Accompanying reversals of the Earth's magnetic field (or some components) when Vulcan is near aphelion could also cause local penetration of high-energy ions from the Van Allen belts. These would cause biological mutations, producing new strains of bacteria and virus along with their attendant plagues. Comet strikes when Vulcan is near aphelion embodied affects similar to combined chemical, nuclear and biological warfare. Figure 8A, a medieval painting depicting the comets, the rain of fire and blood and disease/mutations indicate the expected consequences.65
