This new era called a 'solar hibernation' or 'grand minimum' is caused by a repeating 206 year cycle of the Sun. These hibernations are accompanied by historic reductions in the energy output of the Sun. SSRC research shows the next solar hibernation will bring a long period of cold just as it has done before every time this cycle 'turns over' from its global warming phase to its global cooling phase. In addition, SSRC research backed by that of other researchers has shown a high degree of correlation between solar hibernations and the world's largest earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
Mr. Casey, President of the SSRC was the first authority to notify the White House and other government agencies of this coming solar hibernation in early 2007. Numerous other scientists discovered the same cycles of the Sun. Their findings have been ignored or buried in science journals and thus essentially unknown to the public.During the first six months of 2011, NASA, The US Air Force, and the National Solar Observatory all confirmed the coming solar grand minimum. The next solar hibernation and according to the SSRC and many other scientists, the next climate change to decades of record cold has begun.
That does not mean we can wait to prepare. Now that the hibernation has begun, it is possible for these unusual variations in temperatures to strike with little warning. We should not be surprised to see occasional severe crop damage and recurring food shortages in many nations at any time. Comparisons to the Dalton Minimum show that there is a high probability of social, economic and political turmoil worldwide as a result of massive crop losses from the coming cold weather. The SSRC believes this damage to the world's agricultural systems will be sufficient to create conditions that could lead to the world's worst subsistence crisis in recorded history. This same food crisis occurred during the last hibernation, though with significantly fewer people to feed. Historian John D. Post called that time"...the last great subsistence crisis."
Additionally, SSRC research and that of other respected researchers shows that geophysical upheavals like the largest earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are likely to occur during these solar events. As before with the Mt. Tambora eruption in 1815 that took place during the last solar hibernation, large volcanic eruptions may greatly add to the cooling of the Earth on top of that created by the reduction in the Sun's output. Further, the largest recorded earthquakes in US history took place in the middle of the last hibernation, the New Madrid quakes of 1811-1812. The SSRC Research Report 1-2010, (See The RC Theory page) similar to that of other researchers, established a strong link between solar hibernations and these largest geophysical disturbances. Given the likelihood of major quakes and volcanic eruptions here in the US, the SSRC immediately notified US authorities and major news outlets after release of the report.
A RETIRED Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University physics professor has rejected the theory of global warming, arguing that temperatures are, in fact, cooling. Addressing a group of students and lecturers in his old department on Friday, Prof Koos Vermaak said a global temperature rise was “not possible”.
The mediaeval warming period 900AD-1300AD and the Little Ice Age 1280-1850AD had been left out, skewing the graph. The results were consequently wrong, he said. He said a 1990-2007 satellite study of the temperatures in the inner atmospheric envelope of stratosphere and the outer envelope of troposphere ought to show global warming, if it was occurring, because this was where the reflected heat of the sun was absorbed, in terms of the greenhouse effect. But results of this study showed a –0,493°C decline over the past decade, “so in fact there is a cooling trend”
My wife’s family lives in Rio de Janeiro,” says reader Kevin Koffenberger. “They report that the windchill temperature is 9 degrees celsius (48.2 F) today.
No one in Rio has central heating or fireplaces, and its supposed to be spring there!”
“Even though the mainstream media tries to ignore the obvious cooling in the southern hemisphere over the past several years, Accuweather has picked up on an amazing turn of events from record heat to severe storm to snow and record cold in Brazil,” says Koffenberger.
“The Little Ice Age had many examples of severe storms with sudden, drastic changes during an extended period of low solar activity. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone else?”
According to Metsul, lightning strikes numbered over 300,000 in four days in Rio Grande do Sul (the southernmost state in Brazil), which reported two million without power.
Near the city of Camaquã, nearly a foot (300 mm) of rain was estimated, collapsing a bridge.
Huge hailstones punched holes in roofs, high winds (estimated near 100 mph) knocked down brick walls and radio antennas.
Thousands of homes were damaged in southern Brazil as well as neighboring Argentina and Paraguay (where five people were killed).
On the Uruguay coast, streets filled with sand and sea foam as winds gusted to 107 mph (172 km/hr). Incredibly, less than 10 days later, reports and photos of snow and temperatures below freezing (with wind chills as low as -30 C!) started pouring in.
An article from Estadao.com says (translation) says: “Also there was record snow between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, in Bom Jardim da Serra and Urubici. According to Epagri / Ciram, responsible for monitoring weather conditions in Santa Catarina, the last time there was record snowfall in spring in the state was in 2000.”
