We are at a Grand Solar Minimum and it is likely to continue for many decades.
And this is what it causes, a contorted Jet Stream: 12 April 2020.
This year it seems that the same story has been played out across the Northern hemisphere, North America Europe and right across Russia.
But not only that, but the lack of Solar radiation leads to increases in Volcanic activity and Earthquakes. Today they are going off worldwide. As this continues, probably for decades, it makes a new Krakatoa, Tambora, Yellowstone, a San Andreas fault catastrophe or a tsunami across the Atlantic from the collapse of Tenerife all the more likely.
We also have a Western economic catastrophe from the political actions responding to the Covid outbreak. Covid is a nasty flu that mostly affects the old and the infirm. And Western administrations had plans too cope with such pandemics just as they had in past. The Great Barrington declaration is a movement of skilled medical professionals who certainly advised to stick by the original plan. Instead the Western politicians threw out the plans and decided that trashing the Western economies was a better idea: just to be safe?.
Covid should be judged against real pandemics and this shows what a real pandemic is about.
Covid in Perspective
For this last recent minor uptick, the West has trashed its economies.
And was UK lockdown worth it: deaths in the UK and Sweden compared
You also wondered about a new religion.
We have one now, a new religion hell bent on undoing the industrial achievements of the Western World, with Western politicians clamouring to join in the self-destruction of their Nations to demonstrate their immense virtue at “saving the planet”, all for the sake of an exaggerated and unproven theory that Western Man-made CO2 will overheat the world to such an extent that Man-kind will wipe itself out.
Warmer temperatures and more plant fertilisation by CO2 are benefits not catastrophes. The evidence is there and can be seen throughout horticulture.
However, Man-kind may well be severely damaged by ignoring a coming cold climate catastrophe.
Just work it out: Cui bono – who benefits ?
The Climate Change message is a branch of the continuing Cold War against Western civilisations.
As Napoleon said “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”
