FAST FIVE: The Sun "Has Gone Into Lockdown", And This Strange Behavior Could Worsen Global Food Shortages
The Sun “Has Gone Into Lockdown”, And This Strange Behavior Could Worsen Global Food Shortages Tyler Durden Mon, 05/18/2020 – 20:05 Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog, At a time when the world is already being hit with major crisis after major crisis, our sun is behaving in ways that we have never seen before. For as long as records have been kept, the sun has never been quieter than it has been in 2019 and 2020, and as you will see below we are being warned that we have now entered “a very deep solar minimum”. Unfortunately, other very deep solar minimums throughout history have corresponded with brutally cold temperatures and horrific global famines, and of course this new solar minimum comes at a time when the United Nations is already warning that we are on the verge of “biblical” famines around the world. So we better hope that the sun wakes up soon, because the alternative is almost too horrifying to talk about.
That makes 2020 the second consecutive year of a record-setting low number of sunspots- which you can see (a complete absence of) here.
Well, every once in a while a very deep solar minimum that lasts for several decades comes along, and when our planet has experienced such periods in the past the consequences have been quite dramatic.
At least 14,000 reported positive COVID-19 cases have been connected to meatpacking facilities in at least 181 plants in 31 states as of May 13, and at least 54 meatpacking facility workers have died of the virus at 30 plants in 18 states, according to an investigation by the Midwest Center for Investigative reporting.
So let's keep a very close eye on the giant ball of fire that we are revolving around, because if it remains very quiet that could mean big trouble for all of us.
