Fastest Decline In Solar Activity In 9,300 Years!!!

Fastest decline in solar activity in 9,300 years:

Could signal a descent into Maunder Minimum-like conditions.

*****

“The recent prolonged solar minimum and subsequent weak solar cycle 24 have led to suggestions that the grand solar maximum may be at an end,” says this study on nature.com.

The study,  published in 2015, looked at past variations of solar activity. In 2010, the study found, scientists estimated a mere 8% chance of a return to Maunder Minimum-like conditions within the next 40 years.

However, “the decline in solar activity has continued, to the time of writing, and is faster than any other such decline in 9,300 years. (Italics added)

“Spectacular” Cold Crisis In South America – “Absurdly Cold”

South America Absurdly Cold:

Cold Crisis in South America 

18 July 2017 – On his Twitter feed, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi called the cold in South America “spectacular.”

“Absurdly cold,” said Bastardi.

I posted about the “Cold Crisis in South America” a couple of days ago. It’s the worst situation in many decades, with huge losses expected in agriculture. At the time, electricity was still out in many towns.

Paraguay: Three deaths and destruction of plantations by the cold

Paraguay – Three killed by the cold:

18 July 2017 – Two days with temperatures below zero degrees Celsius have generated three deaths and the destruction of plantations. 

It was colder in the interior of the country where the mercury dropped to minus 4 degrees. In the capital of the country the temperature dropped to zero degrees Celsius on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Pictures on social networks showed everything frozen: plantations, grasslands, streams and roads. Streams turned into skating rinks and clothes froze on the line.

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver – CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver:

CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes.

“While the CO2 and temperature go up – somewhat – together,  when the temperature plummets after each peak, the CO2 stays high!” says reader Jimmy Walter.’

“If CO2 were the driver, the temperature could not drop!”

Prelude to Global Extinction

Prelude to Global Extinction:

No bells tolled when the last Catarina pupfish on Earth died. Newspapers didn’t carry the story when the Christmas Island pipistrelle vanished forever.

Two vertebrate species go extinct every year on average, but few people notice, perhaps because the rate seems relatively slow – not a clear and present threat to the natural systems we depend on. This view overlooks trends of extreme decline in animal populations, which tell a more dire story with cascading consequences, according to a new study that provides the first global evaluation of these population trends.

H/t reader squodgy:

“It does seem we, as an “educated” race, have ignored all native cultures, and proceeded to destroy our environment, especially in the pursuance of wealth, at all costs, including the livelihoods of our co-inhabitants we choose to ignore.

Chernobyl & Fukushima plus Corporate exploitation of world assets over 100 years e.g. Texaco in Ecuador etc with no regard for environmental impact are costs they never considered. They should do now.
Those costs are now coming home to roost…..”

Mountain of God volcano eruption ‘imminent’ as scientists fear loss of historic sites

Mountain of God volcano eruption ‘imminent’ as scientists fear loss of historic sites:

A VOLCANO known as the Mountain of God could be about to erupt sparking fears it could destroy important archaeological sites.

Scientists studying the tremors of the volcano have warned it may blow ‘any second’, destroying the invaluable sites forever.

The 7,650ft volcano, also known as Ol Doinyo Lengai, is less than 70 miles from where footprints left by our ancestors 3.6 million years ago were found.

It is also close to a spot where 400 human footprints from 19,000 years ago were discovered by scientists.

AND NOW: Fukushima’s radioactive water to be released into ocean under new plan

Fukushima’s radioactive water to be released into ocean under new plan:

The “decision has already been made” to release radioactive material from the Fukushima plant into the ocean, according to its owners. Fishermen have reacted with fury to the decision, claiming it will devastate their already struggling industry.

Under the plan the radioactive material tritium, which is being used to cool reactors whose cooling systems were damaged in the 2011 tsunami, will be released into the Pacific Ocean.

“I’m very sorry that Tepco has been prolonging making a decision,” the new chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) Takashi Kawamura told reporters on Thursday, reported Reuters. “We could have decided much earlier, and that is Tepco’s responsibility.”
