Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell by John L. Casey

By John L. Casey

Climate switch has been a complicated challenge for years. In Dark Winter, writer John L. Casey, a former White apartment nationwide house coverage consultant, NASA headquarters advisor, and house go back and forth engineer tells the reality approximately ominous alterations occurring within the weather and the Sun.

Casey’s learn into the Sun’s job, which begun virtually a decade in the past, led to discovery of a sun cycle that's now reversing from its worldwide warming section to that of risky worldwide cooling for the following thirty years or extra. This new chilly weather will dramatically effect the world’s electorate. In Dark Winter, he offers facts of the following:

• the tip of worldwide warming
• the start of a “solar hibernation,” a ancient aid within the power output of the Sun
• A long term drop in Earth’s temperatures
• the beginning of the subsequent weather swap to a long time of dangerously chilly weather
• The excessive chance of checklist earthquakes and volcanic eruptions

A sobering examine Earth’s destiny, Dark Winter predicts all over the world, crop- destroying chilly; foodstuff shortages and riots within the usa and overseas; major worldwide dying; and social, political, and monetary upheaval.

35 We can hope for a response to this book from the mainstream media in the coming years, but we should not expect one. Even now, after the brutal, record-setting winters of 2008–2009 and 2009– 2010, and after setting new records during the winter of 2010–2011, we still see an unwavering AGW community, led by a recalcitrant presidential staff of enviro-socialists. The prospect for catastrophic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions during the current solar hibernation, fully predicted by me and other scientists, may further serve to divert attention away from cold weather preparedness.

The 206-year cycle and other smaller cycles I found are the ones that have real impact on us. These are the ones that we can relate to, as they fully account for the puzzling swings of global climate change that have perplexed us all for the past two centuries. If one can accept that major solar activity minimums have been in lockstep with significant cold periods as the physical records show, and that nothing man can do will change the cycles of the Sun, then one can only conclude that the next solar hibernation will also bring with it a calamitous cold era as it has done before.

WHAM! There aren’t many choices for us. We are just going to have to hunker down and weather the storm. That metaphor has little comfort now, as the climate’s cooling begins. We just have to use the short time we have wisely, learning as much as possible, preparing for the worst, and adapting as best as we can. That is going to be the key: adaptation. But we can adapt better if we know what is coming, if we know when it is coming, and if we have a plan to adjust to the new natural order. We will have to downshift and retrench, just as the natural world will around us.
