As I’ve discussed in previous posts, I think the scientific evidence for the solar minimum that we entered into this past year is very strong. I think we should consider and prepare for a scenario in which growing seasons in the southern and northern hemispheres are shortened over the next several decades. Speculative question: Is the urgency for greater control of societies occurring globally via the push for digital ID systems, digital data harvesting, and digital currencies, etc. related to the sun cycle? I don’t know but it is a question I am pondering.
