Global cooling, destroyer of civilisations, has arrived


The book of Ecclesiastes tells us there is nothing new under the sun. It’s a profound statement. There is also nothing new about the sun, either, as we shall see.

Like many in this emerging movement of the right, I am fascinated and disturbed by what I believe to be the imminent collapse of Western civilisation. It’s mad, I know. Walking down the street of an Australian city, particularly a part of one still filled with Australians, it seems impossible.

So has thought every mighty empire at a civilisational highpoint just prior to the barbarians marauding over the horizon, however.

This question of what causes civilisational collapse also haunts the field of Bronze Age archaeology. It still causes fierce debates to this day. The best that the leading academics in the field can come up with is to say that civilisations collapse, like the Bronze Age Mediterranean ones or the Western Roman Empire, when a combination of catastrophes occurs in too-quick a succession for them to be fended off.

When famine, civil unrest, earthquakes, volcanoes and then marauding barbarians show up all at once, it’s just your time. Decades of fieldwork and research and that’s the best the academic community can come up with to explain what causes civilisations to collapse and dark ages to begin.

It’s just… random.

There is another pattern to civilisational collapse which the academics don’t acknowledge, however. It’s that when societies are collapsing, their gods can’t help them. Their priestly class is impotent in the face of the threat, unable to even perform their primary function and warn the people and then explain what is going on to them.

After all, that’s what priests are supposed to do. It’s also what academics do. That’s because, in our civilisation, the academics are the priests. They’re the soothsayers and court magicians. They replaced the church during the Enlightenment and have held their position as the highest authority on all matters ever since.

And just like the priests in previous eras when change was happening which conflicted with the orthodoxy, our priests are unable to explain what is happening and what is going to happen shortly to our world. They keep telling us that white men cause all the racism, there is no such thing as gender, central banks can ensure endless prosperity for all, Karl Marx did nothing wrong and anthropogenic global warming caused by industrial civilisation is destroying the planet.

None of these things are true, but you can’t say so if you’re a member of the priest class who staff our universities. Contradicting any of these things would make you a heretic. And heretics don’t get funding, let alone tenure.

Unfortunately for Prof Cline in the video above, there is a single explanation for why the Bronze Age civilisations, the Western Roman Empire and other civilisations throughout history collapsed. You just need to have your mind open to be able to see it.

The main force which drives the cycle of civilisations is the solar cycle, specifically cyclical changes in the energy output of the sun which affect not only the climate of the Earth, but also the magnetosphere and atmosphere of our planet.

Establishment scientists in the West scoff at such an assertion, but they are fools. Believing they are the inheritors of the tradition of Copernicus and Galileo, dispelling superstition and ignorance with the power of their intellects, they are instead the postmodern equivalent of the medieval academic elite who persecuted those free thinkers. They’re the Inquisitors now.

A downturn in the solar cycle is referred to as a Grand Solar Minimum. Unfortunately for us, and as I covered in these pages earlier this year, we entered one at the beginning of 2017. Sunspot measurements, used as a proxy for levels of solar output, crashed precipitously at the beginning of this year. According to Nature, the rate of decline of solar activity recently has been faster than at any time in the last 9,300 years.

This drop in solar activity doesn’t just cause lower temperatures, greater cloud cover thus more intense storms, longer winters and shorter growing seasons for agriculture worldwide. It also clearly corresponds historically to periods of increased volcanic activity and massive earthquakes. Indeed, it seems the increased volcanic activity during Grand Solar Minima contributes to lower temperatures via a feedback mechanism.

It’s the famine that this causes which has historically caused civil unrest and then those marauding barbarians.

The effects of the current Grand Solar Minimum are already being felt. 2017 in Newfoundland, Canada, is being referred to as the ‘year without a summer’, while Edmonton received unseasonal summer snow this year. Nearby Jasper ski area also received an unprecedented early-season snowfall which broke all records. Locals were stunned. And these are Canadians we’re talking about, eh.

What added to their confusion was that only two weeks before Edmonton broke a 108-year-old record temperature for September, hitting 32.2C. This is also to be expected as we head into a Grand Solar Minimum; along with a general cooling trend over the next 15 years we can expect greater turbulence in local temperatures. This has aggravating effects on storm intensity as well as on crop losses.

On the other side of the North American continent, Californians were skiing in summer. This followed a monster winter last year.

All while Arctic sea ice is up 40% from this date five years ago, Amsterdam recorded its coldest September 16 ever (then their weather bureau erased the data) and we’ve had our lowest temperature dips in years along with record snow dumps.

The Grand Solar Minimum which began in January this year, which some are calling Minimum Eddy after astronomer John A. Eddy, is not just about cold weather though. It is also a harbinger of massive earthquakes, like the series that have been striking Mexico and the US west coast.

And superstorms.

Such events will intensify over the next 15 years as we enter the Grand Solar Minimum, and if the pattern of history repeats the population of the planet will be much lower by then. It’s a cycle as old as time.

We shouldn’t be afraid, however. Knowing that such events are on the horizon is the most important first step in preparing. There are many resources available to people who wish to understand and plan for what is ahead.

YouTube channels such as Ice Age Farmer and Adapt 2030 have useful information, as well as books such as Dark Winter and Upheaval by US national space policy advisor and NASA consultant John Casey. There is plenty of information for those willing to look.

The next step beyond that is to take action to prepare. Key to this, in my view, is a mindset shift from thinking of ourselves as passive consumers in an impersonal system to interdependent producers in an organic, rooted community. Society after the changes that are ahead will be less complex, less abstract and less abundant. There will be suffering. It is my view, however, that there will also be a rediscovery of more fulfilling and rewarding ways of living.

The obsessions of the current establishment, such as ‘sustainability’ and ‘green energy’, will become old gods which no-one pays attention to. The academics associated with the current order will be discredited. Their temples will be appropriated for a new regime or abandoned as ruins.

New gods will emerge, and new priests. And the cycle will continue.

      Right. MUST protect our phoney baloney jobs.

    • Right, so you read this stuff in a “science” publication ?Gee, it must be the truth,then. Golly!

      • Gonad Organ

        Yeah, that’s true; I know that a science paper isn’t going to convince the science deniers. I am just curious, though; if ‘sciency’ stuff is bad; how does one determine that The Sun has changed? Was this change discovered from studying the Bible? Perhaps an oil executive explained it to us? Or was it a Tarot reading that predicts the sun’s output?
        People seem to accept the science involved in studying sunspots; or moving electrons around the world to make them appear on their screens. But if it is in reference to something these guys don’t ‘believe’ in like climate change or gravity then Gosh, Biff; those dirty scientists are just doing this for another $5000 research grant.

    • entropy

      Looks like you cited the wrong ‘original paper’:

      Source:: The Conversation

      Not to mention the unreferenced assertions like “A new Maunder minimum would slow climate change, but it is not enough to stop it.”

      Feel free, climate alarmist, to posit an actual argument instead of just spamming fake news.

      • Gonad Organ

        Let me get this straight – referencing a paper that says ‘nothing is going to happen’ is being a climate alarmist? So what does one call a person that predicts an ice age based on nothing at all?

        • entropy

          You didn’t reference a scientific paper, you referenced a Mummy blog. Says everything we need to know about your academic credentials.

          What do you call it when all the ‘climate scientists’ claim the temperature will rise 1.5 degrees by 2022 then retract in 2017 when it becomes clear that’s not going to happen?

          • Gonad Organ

            Got me.

  • Vote No!

    New gods? Will they drive Plymouth Superbirds and play sweet, sweet blues on a Fender Stratocaster? Tell me o prophet Moses. I beseech thee to render unto me the workings of the future.


    The last Little Ice Age as I would say was a period marred by civil wars, interregional and country wars, for example during the last Little Ice Age, you had the Ming Dynasty in Ancient China collapse and many academics will blame it on the corruption on the Ming Royal Court when it is in fact crop failures and harvest failures and famines which literally caused it happen, why are the academics not touching this, is it because they fear what I just described will happen again when the next minimum comes

    • Ron Mortimer

      French Revolution too.

  • Moses, I don’t hold “Scientists” in high regard,these days.
    They are the modern version of the Priesthood and their religion is Scientism.
    Universities churn them out, fully indoctrinated little cookie cutter science priests.
    If you challenge global warming, for instance, you are deemed a “denier”. A heretic. It wont be long before science deniers are burned at the stake.
    Scientists Holy Grail is to get some juicy research grants to keep the gravy train rolling, who cares if you need to fudge a few results here and there ?
    Science has well and truly been monetised/ corporatised.

    I am trying to think of a great scientist/ thinker of our time, or a great intellect. A Kepler or Descartes or Aristotle or Huygens.
    But I cannot think of any. Maybe I move in the wrong circles.
    I certainly don’t count outright frauds like Hawking as a modern genius.
    Scientists lie to us all the time.
    Take a keen eye to NASA and look how they brazenly hoodwink the public.
    Even our BOM scientists manipulate and massage weather data to suit their agendas.
    Frauds,one and all. Snake oil salesmen. Charlatans,quacks and dissemblers. “The science is settled”, etc. What crap.

    I wont be sorry if the Solar Minimum wipes out mankind in a catacysmic reset,we are well overdue for a clean slate.

    It’s laughablly predictable that if we enter a new ice age, the scientism priests will somehow twist their “research” to point to global warming as the cause. Of course, they knew it all along.

    Scientists ? Humbug !

      “I am trying to think of a great scientist/ thinker of our time, or a great intellect. A Kepler or Descartes or Aristotle or Huygens.

      A great thinker of our time is Jordan Peterson, surely you have heard of him.

      • Sorry, never heard of him.
        But I found his website and he seems to be just another academic on the gravy train, presenting himself as a guru for the times, asking for money, giving lectures, writing books etc.
        From his website:

        “Donate to Dr. Peterson’s YouTube Channel, Podcast, and other projects. Donate monthly on Patreon, Paypal, or make one time donations.”

        No thanks.

        • LeftRightOut67

          Wow. It took you no more than 2 or 3 hours to dismiss upwards of 1000 hrs of video content, 3 books and countless references.
          You should go to the head of the class, you are clearly the most intelligent person in the universe!
          Plus, of course, you refute nor 1 point he makes.
          But he likes money, so he must be evil, right?

          • I don’t feel any pressing need to debate you or refute any particular points that your hero makes.
            If you have a definite hard on for him, like him and respect his work, that’s fine.
            I’m sure the man is a fully fledged monetised genius and will save the world.
            Have a nice day.

          • Ron Mortimer

            I only recently discovered Jordan Peterson….total shitlord with how he mass triggers the left lol. I have downloaded 200+ of his vids and am working my way through them.


    Those that think Global Warming always happens will be in for a shock when the next minimum hits, some of the world’s infrastructures, I mean Railways and Roads will not be able to operate in cold temperatures, that will pose a problem for cars and trains, just in time deliveries into town will collapse if the roads and rails will not be able to handle the cold temperatures. Also the next minimum will pose a threat to our electricity networks along with telephone and internet, I suggest people read up on the Carrington Event which demonstrates how Coronal Mass Ejections from the sun caused the telegraph wires to burn in 1859. Compare it with today, our electrical and telephone network will be in trouble because it will fry the electrical circuit boards in our telephone networks and it will dry the transformers in the electricity network as well. Also Global Cooling can pose a threat to air travel as well, I am on the belief that a Cooling envrionment will lead to more intense or increased turbulence also David Dubyne aka Adapt2030 has covered this before as well. Also it will make sea travel much more dangerous once ice increases as well because the ice can prove to be a navigation hazard as well. Also for the warmists, it will be a heck of a experience for them, by the time they learn what a Maunder or Dalton minimum is like, it will be all too late for them because some of the warmists will be rioting and fighting each other in the streets because town is out of food.

    • After about 6 weeks of the new ice age, billions will be dead.
      The Elites might be ok for a few years in those deep underground tunnel complexes that have been built for them.

      • Ron Mortimer

        I think it will be more gradual than that( months and years not weeks). Much of the rural peasant 3rd world will .survive way better than 1st world citizens with their long supply lines and general dependency on infrastructure.

  • Aristonothos

    I’ve always thought of this as a marginal issue. I’m not particularly invested in either industrialised society or post-industrial society, as long as its racially homogeneous.

    That said, this came out an hour ago and is worth a watch.

    • Moses Apostaticus

      They just make this shit up, seriously.

  • Walter J Williams

    These are the times we live in. Free, intellectual thought is dead. Facts do not matter. The cult of global co2 warming, interlocked with left wing radicals have brainwashed the masses. If you question them, you are labeled a denier, and the general left wing idealist wants to prosecute you for questioning their cultist ideals. Before their unevitable demise, at the peak of their denial, ordinary openminded people who ask questions and seek truth will be beaten and left dead on the streets. This will happen at the beginning of the food crisis, and it will be blamed on global warming. It has already started, and the warming cult is calling it anomalies, look at the cultist definition of this years active tropical season.

  • I wonder if it affects us on a psychic level as well?
