The most prestigious and respected authority on climate in the United States has predicted we are entering a new Ice Age because of easily detected and obvious changes in the output and surface of the Sun.
UPDATE: So simple, even the mediavitzim are starting to get it
There are people freezing to death in Mexico
California Mountains under 5 feet of snow with more on the way
It appears this entire winter is just one big nonstop storm
Eastern Europe paralyzed by deadly winter onslaught
Britain doesn't know what cold is ... yet!
India is in front of a bonfire to stave off death by freezing
The earth has not stopped shaking since the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004
There is still something they don't understand, after all this time, that we do here on Vault-Co.
Before we get to that Ice Age, we have to go through the transitional period.
That's beginning right now. It will culminate with the solar maximum of the coming cycle in 2012. Everything so far is just prologue to what is coming.
Imagine what is going to happen during the next four years and then the four years following.
It's going to get interesting here on Planet Earth. Look around you right now.
Everything is set to a hair trigger to blow. I mean, everything.
Resource conflicts and shortages. Massive demographic changes in formerly stable societies. Enormous irresolvable tensions between the West and China, NATO and Russia. Incredibly poor leadership guaranteed. Proliferation and destabilization of nearly all former balances in military weaponry. Space based nuclear conflict. Pending pandemics for a dozen kinds of pathologies. The food production system and agricultural supply chain seems customized to collapse at the earliest crisis point of which there are dozens appearing.
The planet is a gigantic pile of wet, waxy dripping old dynamite about a thousand stories tall. Our "leaders" are taking turns throwing glowing cigarette butts into that pile.
What do you expect to happen?
