Is Earth’s Magnetic Field Reversing? – Video

February 17, 2020 by Robert

“There is no evidence of increased extinction rates associated with any of the past reversals,” the announcer for PBS Space Time video assures us.

Really!??

Oh, “there may be higher incidences of cancers and other mutations from more high-energy particles reaching the ground,” he continues. “And probably we’ll need to get much better at shielding satellites from the solar wind.”

Higher incidences of cancer and other mutations, but no evidence of increased extinction rates?

View: https://youtu.be/51usJ74pPP8


The short answer I get from this video about whether or not Earth’s magnetic field is preparing to flip is, “Well, maybe.” How’s that for a scientific answer?

However, the video does provide some insights that I have referred to in both Not by Fire but by Ice and Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps.

Our magnetic field is currently undergoing rapid changes, possibly signalling the imminent flipping of its polarity, the video says. The north pole may become the south, and the south the north.

The earth’s magnetic north pole is currently moving around 60 km (37 miles) per year, around 5 degrees south of the geographic pole, leaving Canadian territory and heading toward Siberia.

The good news (I guess) is that Earth’s magnetic field will probably hold out for at least our lifetimes… and perhaps for generations to come.

TxGal, thanks for posting those.

I didn't think to mention the last two. I think I'm trying to fight off burn-out on all this doom coming at us from all sides!

I know I will...I always do. It just doesn't feel much like it at the moment.

Or maybe it's just this dreary unreliable weather getting me down. There has been a day here and there warm enough to do a few things, but the forecast is always so uncertain I can never make any plans. I'm not as flexible as I should be about such things and I find myself getting impatient much more easily lately.

Jeez, I hit the like button, sorry!

I'm with you there, the coronavirus seems to be gaining steam, and it's beyond concerning. I'm doing what I can to get set for it as much as possible, but there is much to do. I'm pretty much glued to that thread when I'm on.

Our weather has been up and down, today was 80 and downright muggy. Tomorrow another cold front comes in with rain, and we're looking at several inches between tomorrow and Thursday. Not sure if you're getting that, too. Just when it seems it will settle down enough to make gardening possible, we get more rain....we may be heading to mushy territory. I'd like to get more seed potatoes....still haven't planted the ones we have!

Hah! That's okay if you "Like" my griping posts. (: (:

We do have a slight chance of rain, but not much. It's not nearly as warm here as where you are since I'm a lot farther north. Our next cold nights are going to be I think Thursday and Friday. It's too soon to plant potatoes here. I bought some and also have a lot that I grew last year that are perfect for planting right now. Not sure where to plant them, since no one ever came to help switch out the bad dirt for the good in my outdoor planting containers. (THREE different people said they'd help and all three have made themselves scarce!) I could manage the job myself, maybe one or two containers a day, but it's been too cold for me, when there are actually days when it's not raining and the soil isn't too soaked and heavy.

Weather is the main reason I am not getting as much done as I would like. Going into the Spring storm season, I will get even less done. When it is not raining or too windy I over work. Then, I pay for it. This would be easier if I was twenty again.

UNUSUAL ARCTIC ICE | 2020 Crop Fungus Problems

Run time is 25:58

Looking at every possible indicator for spring weather, it would appear that the 2020 Spring will be a wet cold one, which creates a bad season for planting. Cooler damper weather could carry into the summer which may cause fungus issues during the 2020 Crop Season.

ETA: We're colder and wetter now, and more is coming. It's downright boggy out there in all pastures. I'm glad I put in the raised bed planters this past year, but I'm hesitant to get my seed potatoes in. Looks to be another year of 'fingers crossed' gardening.

Arctic blast moves to Northeast

February 19, 2020 by Robert

Accumulating snowfall is expected for the lee of the central Rockies and the central High Plains through Thursday, the southern Appalachians and across much of North Carolina, northern South Carolina and southern Virginia late Thursday into early Friday. Locally several inches of snow is expected.

The snow could come at the worst possible time Thursday for North Carolina, as 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible during the evening commute.

Light accumulations are forecast from parts of Tennessee to portions of North Carolina and southern Virginia.

Snow is expected from Colorado to Kansas, where locally a half foot of snow is possible, and 6 to 8 inches of snow from the Great Lakes to New England.

Unfortunately, with ongoing major to historic river flooding, another round of precipitation is expected to push eastward from the southern Plains tonight and move east across the Gulf Coast states and Southeast on Thursday. Additional moderate to heavy rainfall is expected across these areas, exacerbating the ongoing significant river flooding across areas of the South.

By Thursday morning, an additional 1 to 3 inches of rain will move into already flooded areas of the South from Mississippi to Alabama.

Meanwhile, Arctic high pressure pushing down across the north-central U.S. today will spread east-southeastward and encompass much of the central to eastern U.S. going through Thursday, keeping temperatures below average for this part of the country.

Wind chills could dip as low as 30 degrees below zero in the Upper Midwest and the Western Great Lakes.

TxGal, Yanassa Ama Ranch has posted several in the last few days, after going for quite a while posting nothing.

Thanks for posting the links. I'll have to check it all out tomorrow, cuz today's early morning shopping followed by unloading and wiping down EVERYTHING and putting it in "quarantine" in the back porch, was exhausting on 2 1/2 hours of sleep.

Once the feed store gets in some bedding plants, I'll be done shopping and will only need to go through the bank drive-thru once a month for the foreseeable future. It will be nice to just fall asleep when it happens and be able to sleep until I wake up naturally, even if it ends up being late morning. Hope I can get things tuned around by summer, though. I love watching morning happen and I can't do that very well when I'm away past 3 AM most nights.

Wonder if my sleep problem might be related to the GSM, changing magnetic fields or some such?

Wish IAF would put together his good podcasts a little more often!

You're welcome...I have a lot of catching up to do. I had to run out to pick up some OTC this morning, and I stayed in our small little town, gassed the car, hit the bank drive-thru, then went straight home. I'm not spending a lot of time in the public, and today was wet and chilly. Hard to think about planting when it's like that outside...and I'd still like to get more seed potatoes.

I'm a morning watcher, too :-) I love to be up at first light and watch nature wake up, too.

It could be GSM related, I've often wondered about how subtly it affects us. IAF is my favorite!

IAF is my favorite and next is Deep South Bama for a total change of pace.

Lately I'm trying to find things to listen to that I don't have to look at, so I can get some knitting done and not feel like I'm just glued to the computer screen for hours on end. There are just too many various ones to listen to, so I'm just sticking with Chris Martinsen because I don't have to look up when he's talking.

I'll definitely put the knitting down when IAF posts. I've found I know when he has another podcast in the works or even posted by what he's showing on Twitter. Plus there's always a few things there that he doesn't touch on in his podcasts.

Well, time for me to call it a night. Hope I'm not awake past 3 AM again!

Global Crop Failures Continue: In Australia This Is Going To Be The WORST HARVEST Ever Recorded

February 19, 2020 by Michael Snyder

Global food production is being hit from seemingly every side. Thanks to absolutely crazy weather patterns, giant locust armies in Africa and the Middle East, and an unprecedented outbreak of African Swine Fever in China, a lot less food is being produced around the world than originally anticipated. Even during the best of years we really struggle to feed everyone on the planet, and so a lot of people are wondering what is going to happen as global food supplies become tighter and tighter. The mainstream media in the United States is so obsessed with politics right now that they haven’t been paying much attention to this emerging crisis, but the truth is that this growing nightmare is only going to intensify in the months ahead.

In Australia, conditions have been extremely hot and extremely dry, and that helped to fuel the horrific wildfires that we recently witnessed.

And everyone knew that agricultural production in Australia was going to be disappointing this year, but it turns out that it is actually going to be the worst ever recorded

Australia’s hottest and driest year on record has slashed crop production, with summer output expected to fall to the lowest levels on record, according to official projections released Tuesday.

The country’s agriculture department said it expects production of crops like sorghum, cotton and rice to fall 66 percent — the lowest levels since records began in 1980-81.

The continent of Australia is considered to be one of the breadbaskets of the world. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 2018/19 Australia exported over 9 million tons of wheat to the rest of the world.

But thanks to relentless crop failures, Australia has started to import wheat, and that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

So instead of helping to feed the rest of the world, Australia is now relying on the rest of us to help feed them.

And what is happening this year didn’t just barely break the old records. In fact, one senior economist says that this will be the worst summer crop production the country has ever seen “by a large margin”

“It is the lowest summer crop production in this period by a large margin,” Peter Collins, a senior economist with the department’s statistical body ABARES told AFP.

Of course if the rest of the world was doing great we could certainly survive a downturn in Australia.

Unfortunately, that is definitely not the case.

Right now, billions upon billions of locusts are voraciously devouring farms in eastern Africa and the Middle East. As I detailed the other day, giant armies of locusts the size of large cities are traveling up to 100 miles per day as they search for food. When they descend on a farm, all the crops can be consumed literally within 30 seconds. It is a nightmare of epic proportions, and UN officials are telling us that this crisis is only going to get worse over the next couple of months.

In Uganda, the army has been called out to help fight this locust plague, but it is making very little difference

Under a warm morning sun scores of weary soldiers stare as millions of yellow locusts rise into the northern Ugandan sky, despite hours spent spraying vegetation with chemicals in an attempt to kill them.

From the tops of shea trees, fields of pea plants and tall grass savanna, the insects rise in a hypnotic murmuration, disappearing quickly to wreak devastation elsewhere.

The most effective way of fighting these locust swarms is to spray insecticide on them from the air, but even that only produces very limited results.

However, at least it is better than doing nothing.

The UN is trying to raise a lot more money to get more planes into the air, because if nothing is done the number of locusts “could grow up to 500 times by June”

The U.N. has said $76 million is needed immediately. On Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a visit to Ethiopia said the U.S. would donate another $8 million to the effort. That follows an earlier $800,000.

The number of overall locusts could grow up to 500 times by June, when drier weather begins, experts have said. Until then, the fear is that more rains in the coming weeks will bring fresh vegetation to feed a new generation of the voracious insects.

Overall, these locusts are affecting nations “with a combined population of nearly 2 billion”, and the amount of food that these locusts are destroying is unprecedented.

Meanwhile, China has been dealing with the worst outbreak of African Swine Fever in history.

African Swine Fever does not affect humans, but it sweeps through herds of pigs like wildfire. There is no vaccine, there is no cure, and once African Swine Fever starts infecting pigs in a certain area the only thing that can be done is to kill the rest of the pigs to keep it from spreading anywhere else.

Unfortunately, China has not been able to get this outbreak under control, and the losses have been staggering.

According to the New York Times, the number of pigs that have been wiped out in China already is equivalent to “nearly one-quarter of all the world’s pigs”…

The disease was first reported in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, in early August 2018. By the end of August 2019, the entire pig population of China had dropped by about 40 percent. China accounted for more than half of the global pig population in 2018, and the epidemic there alone has killed nearly one-quarter of all the world’s pigs.

But of course China is not the only one dealing with African Swine Fever.

In fact, cases of African Swine Fever have now been identified “in 50 countries”, and U.S. pig farmers are deathly afraid of what would happen if this disease starts spreading here.

As a result of this crisis, pork prices in China have gone through the roof, and many families are no longer able to eat pork at all.

Never before in the modern era have we seen so many major threats to global food production emerge simultaneously.

There are more than 7 billion people living on our planet today, and we need to be able to grow enough food to feed everyone.

If we aren’t able to do that, food prices will start to get really high, and people in the poorest areas simply will not have enough food to feed their families.

Have you had your thyroid checked? It that is out of whack, sleeplessness happens. Unusual weight gain or loss (depending on whether you are Hashimoto or Graves) is a big dot, too. I am certain the Magnetosphere just makes all of this normal stuff worse.

TxGal, thanks for posting the link. I think he's starting to get back to his original GSM routine.

Does it seem to you like his podcasts have more ads in them since he's been back?
-----
Supposed to get down to 21 here tonight and then 24 tomorrow night. I'm NOT looking forward to that! It is so hard to keep warm when the temps get that low!
-----
I've jugged up 20# of lentils. I plan to sprout them for the chickens, so it's almost like I just bought more eggs!

My feed store finally has some plants, but unfortunately no kale. Hoping for that next week. I think I'll go in early Saturday when it's not quite as cold, and get the cabbage and broccoli plants. I can do a last minute stop at Dollar General at the same time, and maybe even top of the truck's gas tank. I have the choice of lots of stops in one trip, or lots of trips, which is wasteful when I can so easily avoid it.

Wonder if I should treat myself to one last box of ice cream? It doesn't do my reflux much good, but I have it about 4 times a year at most. (And I have to use up that bottle of chocolate syrup, don'tcha know?)

ETA I just watched the video. It scares me and I don't know whether I'm nuts or all the people around me are just clueless.

I've only watched half of it and then got a phone call. Just now getting back to being scared the rest of the way.

Did lots of discussing things with my sister who doesn't have a computer any more. She decided not to even do her planned last shopping list today.

I have only one more short run planned, to get bedding plants for spring greens and to top off my truck's gas tank. Then I'll stay home for good.

Shipping Shutdown: Exporters Warn of Global Food Trade Collapse

Run time is 24:37

Global shipping has dropped off, and exporters are warning that refrigerated container (reefer) shortages pose major problems for food trade. Soil is even wetter than last year in US Midwest, presaging a difficult -- and potentially catastrophic -- 2020 season. UK is under water. China is shutdown. Australia reported record low crops. Grow food. Store it. Prepare for a limited collapse of our food system.

I'm just about to watch it...sounds ominous. I don't need any help being more scared than I am :-)

Did a feed store and TS run yesterday, and bedding plants are in here. Probably just in the nick of time....

The IAF podcast really was pretty disturbing.

My feed store had the broccoli and cabbage plants I wanted this last week (I called them) but they had not gotten in the kale, which I thought was sort of odd. So I've postponed my last trip until they get their kale, at which time I will also gas up the truck, if nothing else.

Looks like the rest of this month is going to be ugly/chilly. NOT looking forward to it. I'm so tired of being cold all the time!

Well, time to go gather eggs.

Interesting about the kale, but there could be many reasons why it wasn't there....hopefully soon.

I saw that, here, too! I thought we'd be warming up a bit more...nope...and more rain. I hate to complain about the rain, because so many areas are in drought, but we're still squishy out there...

Glad you're getting eggs again! We had a hawk attack today, took one bantam (they always get the friendly ones). It's been a long time, though, since we've had a hawk take a chicken. I really hate that....

If the people who plant for Bonnie Plants are like about 3/4 of the ones who drive the delivery trucks, they probably don't read or even understand English all that well and misunderstood instructions to plant kale seeds. The guys on the trucks just scowl and ignore me if I smile and say good morning to them.

Sorry you lost a chicken. I don't dare let mine out, since it's been a long time since I've had a dog around to keep the chicken-chomping varmints out of the yard.

I seem to get three eggs one day and four the next, over and over again. Kind of odd from eight hens, but it's early yet, and is already more than my sister and I are using between us, so I'll just wait and see.

MADRID -- Spanish authorities said Sunday that they have closed airports on the Canary Islands because of a wind storm that is blinding the archipelago with sand and dust.

Spain’s airport authorities said that incoming planes have been rerouted to other destinations and no flights are being allowed to leave airports on the islands’ airports.

The regional government for the Canary Islands says that wind gusts could reach 120 kph (around 75 mph). Authorities have closed schools for Monday.

Television images show palm trees whipping in the wind amid a thick yellow haze enveloping the islands.

The storm phenomenon, locally known as “calima,” is capable of lifting up clouds of sand and dust from the Sahara desert and transporting them across the 95 kilometers (59 miles) separating the islands from the African coast.
