NASA predicts weakest solar activity in 200 years
NASA comes out with a shocking announcement that starting in 2020 we will experience the lowest solar activity in 200 years, and global temperatures will drop. With this jet stream will shift creating new precipitation patterns and volcanic eruptions will cause even more of a feed back loop intensifying cooling and global crop losses.

Comment: See also: David DuByne of Adapt 2030 recently had a two part discussion with Laura Knight-Jadczyk and Pierre Lescaudron, editors at SOTT.net and authors of Earth Changes and the Human Cosmic Connection: The Secret History of the World.

The news cycle is largely distraction from increasing food prices and societal changes as Earth shifts to a cooler climate. As the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum intensifies, a 400-year cycle in our Sun is affecting crop production, the economy and everyone on our planet. This is a timeline for what you can expect from now to 2030 as the frequency from our Sun changes.
