No One believes How Bad it will Be!!!

Dear Readers,

Please begin your preparations (if you haven’t started already). By this time next year (2021), basic food items will be 4-7 times higher in cost than now.

Start buying rice, pasta, dried potatoes, dried peas, and canned protein and veggies of all sorts. Store these in water-tight containers (air-tight is better). Make sure that they are stored above flood levels (yes, flooding will be a problem).

Why? The Grand Solar Minimum or not so Mini-Ice-Age is beginning to hit us hard. This one could be on a 2,000 year repeating cycle; that means it could last 400-800 years. Really? Yes, no shit!

OK. What does that mean? In Europe, all of the farm land North of the French and Italian borders will have growing seasons that are just too short. Yes, potatoes and cabbages can be grown, but corn, wheat and other grains not so much. Yes, the Ukraine will have shorter and shorter growing seasons and the cold/snow will come earlier and earlier (sooner). The same thing will happen to the grow areas in the United States; draw a line from Northern Arizona to Southern Virginia and anything North of that will be too cold. Yes, all of Canada will be too cold.

This will get worse and worse as we move into this new climate. It is not warming, it is getting much colder, quickly. So growing food in the Caucuses will not be an option. Where can Europe get food from? Simple, Syria. Why do you think Putin has his forces there? Hopefully, Northern Africa will become a new grain belt like it was during the Roman Empire. China is making moves to control that whole area; it will begin to have famine this winter.

On China, this is the worst year in more than 400 years for Typhoons and heavy rain. This is not accidental, it is the Jet Streams changing. Many of the 1000s of dams in China are collapsing/have collapsed and flood waters have ruined the crops (and the computer chips). The Chinese Infrastructure has also been destroyed; the food that they have will be much harder to distribute, especially to the countryside.

So… What I am saying is that much of the world will have to adapt and move its growing areas South (or North for the Southern Hemisphere). In the United States, the Desert Southwest will become well watered soon as the Jet Streams move South and carry moisture. This will also bring water to Northern Africa.

Wow. Food security will become a big problem for much of Europe. Yes and No. American farmers must move their operations into the Southern States. This way the Americans will still grow a lot of food. This strategy will not be so easy for Europe; will Europe re-colonize Northern Africa?

What else can be done? Technology may be the answer. Think of all the abandoned warehouses (and castles) in Europe. These can be transformed into vertical farming operations that grow many kinds of vegetables. Hay for the animals will have to be grown in the ground, but hay is a grass and will be able to be harvested until snowfall. Soybeans can be grown via vertical farming. So can potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages, carrots and others. Mushrooms as well. Grains are going to be hit hard, but they are mostly sugar (or produce a lot of glucose). Many of us are moving away from grains in our Keto Diets. In these high-tech growing operations, fish farming is (or can be) built-in. Fish can eat soybeans and so can pigs.

Note: Much of the Ukraine has three meters of top soil. This could be a wonderful source of rich dirt to supply these vertical farming operations.

This is already beginning to happen in both Europe and the United States and is spreading around the world.

What else can be done? Simple, the temperature of the ground is 12° C (or 54° F) two meters (6 feet) down. This is true whether it is in the deepest winter or hottest summer. So, we must take a backhoe and dig down two meters, lay some plastic pipes (be able to put your fist into), cover them up, and hook them up to a fan. We must put enough of these buried pipes in the ground to pick up the heat from the ground and recirculate it in our buildings; taking our cold air and pumping it into the ground pipes. This one operation will provide a continuous baseline of 12°C/54°F; that is nearly the perfect temperature for growing plants and is a much more cost-effective start for heating to Human comfort zones. This is something that can be done in Canada or Russia for those who want to brave long, cold winters.

Then, there is the option of moving underground as well. In our past, we have had entire civilizations move underground to escape falling debris from asteroids or meteor showers. When rocks start falling from the sky, our roofs and vehicles are not make for that kind of punishment. Anything above ground will have to have strong steel coverings. Look up places like Cappadocia and its vast labyrinth of underground dwellings in Turkey. These ancient people dug these stone dwellings out by hand; something severe must have driven them to do so. Our Astronomers are telling us that we are moving into an area of increased meteor activities, what does that mean?

Because of our technologies, if we move quickly, we will be able to grow enough food to maintain our civilization (not so many as now).

So,,, ,whether we are using backhoes or something bigger, getting heat from or getting protection by going underground may be in our futures.

Love, Light and Laughter,

Merln
