okay – this is mostly for people of indigenous heritage who truly value our relationships to everything that has the vibration of life.
the recent severe cold storm across north america has me wondering if we are heading into an ice age. i was pondering this very idea today when i ran across something a little interesting:
BEAR CLAW SUNSPOT: Imagine a bear claw with toes the size of Earth. Yesterday, Philippe Tosi of Nîmes, France, looked through the eyepiece of his solar telescope and saw exactly that:
i’ll take that as a hint, and i would not have decided to share that online, except that the topic of a “solar hibernation” came up in a video i was watching shortly thereafter.
and sure enough, there was an article from 2011 stating that scientists had definitively stated that the sun was going into a quiet period of “hibernation.”
is the sun giving us a sign, knowing we’re watching? and how fitting is it that it came across as an animistic symbol, rather than something more readily discernible to people of a more “western” cosmology?
Climate Change is Lethal!
this is the video i was watching after i’d seen the “bearclaw.”
there’s another video below that explains how extremes in temperature can create climatic chaos. it was done in the mid 80s, before there was much talk about “global warming.”
Sun enters ‘hibernation’
US scientists say the familiar sunspot cycle seems to be entering a hibernation period unseen since the 17th century, a pattern that could have a slight cooling effect on global temperatures.
For years, scientists have been predicting the Sun would by around 2012 move into solar maximum, a period of intense flares and sunspot activity, but lately a curious calm has suggested quite the opposite.
The signs include a missing jet stream, fading spots and slower activity near the poles, said a trio of studies presented yesterday at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Solar Physics Division in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
“This is highly unusual and unexpected,” said Frank Hill, associate director of the National Solar Observatory’s Solar Synoptic Network.
“But the fact that three completely different views of the Sun point in the same direction is a powerful indicator that the sunspot cycle may be going into hibernation.”
Solar activity tends to rise and fall every 11 years or so. The solar maximum and solar minimum each mark about half the interval of the magnetic pole reversal on the Sun, which happens every 22 years.
Experts are now probing whether this period of inactivity could be a second Maunder Minimum, a 70-year period when hardly any sunspots were observed between 1645-1715 known as the “Little Ice Age.”
A former White House space program policy advisor, NASA headquarters consultant and space shuttle engineer, John L. Casey has accumulated 40 years of professional experience spanning a wide variety of technologies, industries and international endeavors.
Cold Sun (published by Trafford Publishing) imparts Casey’s in-depth analysis of how the recently started “solar hibernation” of the Sun has already ended global warming and is bringing record cold weather to the planet.
Relying heavily on scientific studies and the extensive research of experts from around the world, as well as his own original research, Casey has spelled out a compelling case that a new cold era has arrived.
In Cold Sun, Casey gives the evidence showing:
1. Global warming ended years ago
2. The Sun has entered an ominous state of “hibernation”
3. The Earth’s ocean and atmospheric temperatures are dropping rapidly and are now on a long term decline for the next 30 years
4. Glacial ice worldwide is growing rapidly and the threat of rising sea levels is over
5. How the ill-effects of current climate trends may lead to global agricultural devastation and social and economic upheaval
Cold Sun has received wide acclaim from scientists and other experts from around the world, including Dr. Boris Komitov, one of the world’s leading solar physics researchers and the author of the book’s foreword.
