Victorian grain production down 42% as Grand Solar Minimum intensifies


Remember a few years ago almost when XYZ first reported that the Grand Solar Minimum was beginning and the effects of global cooling would soon begin to hit?

Well, they’re hitting.

The potato harvest hasn’t been reduced just in Europe, too. It’s happening across the northern hemisphere.

From the article:

“It’s an unprecedented figure,” Dan Sawatzky, general manager of the Keystone Potato Growers Association, said. “The potato producers association has been around for 50 years and never had to abandon that many acres.”

Potato growers started harvests in the second week of September, and that’s when the cold, damp weather moved in.

“You can’t dig potatoes when the soil’s too wet,” Sawatzky said. Then frost hit on Oct. 11 and the season was over.

The 25-30% reduction in potato yields across Europe will double the price of potatoes across the continent. The lying media is blaming it on man-made global warming, of course, because driving your car causes farts which make the potatoes sad, or something.


Agriculture, particularly the industrial-scale monocultures our society is built around, requires regular and predictable weather to be viable. As the planet goes into a Grand Solar Minimum, the seasons go haywire. This is devastating for crops, and our entry into this current Eddy Minimum has only just begun. According to Agriculture Victoria Seasonal Risk Agronomist, Dale Boyd, it wasn’t just the unseasonable cold and frost events which damaged crops, but the lack of rain during August and September.

It’s not a straight-line cause and effect. Rather, the risk to agriculture is that the complex weather dynamics which crops rely on become unstable, reducing not only the quantity but also the quality of food.

A leading pioneer in the study of Grand Solar Minima and their effects on the planet has been solar physicist Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University. She has been attacked savagely for her theory that the weakened solar magnetosphere during a Grand Solar Minimum is the main factor in driving global cooling on Earth, but she is increasingly being vindicated as global cooling progresses. Recently, Professor Zharkova gave a lecture to the Global Warming Policy Foundation. You can view the lecture below, but it’s heavy-going. Here’s a summary of her main points:

  • The solar magnetosphere is key to understanding how solar cycles influence Earth’s climate;
  • Solar cycle oscillations are stable and consistent over time, so therefore predictable;
  • We are in fact entering a Super Grand Solar Minimum, which recur approximately every 2000 years;
  • This mini ice age will be much longer and more severe than earlier predicted, lasting 400 years;
  • At the bottom of this ice age period in 200 years’ time, the average temperature on Earth will be 2C;
  • The transition period into the ice age, which is usually the period of most vulcanism and disruption, will occur from 2020 until 2053.

Professor Zharkova’s research team have also demonstrated that temperature fluctuations on Earth, Mars and Jupiter all correlate to the solar cycle.

It’s the sun, stupid.

And, starting this winter in the Northern Hemisphere, everyone is going to realise that something is very, very wrong.

The Don knows.

And so do the Russians.

The Don also knows that they’ve been lying to us.

They’ve been lying to us for decades.

But why?

The oligarchs have known about this. They’re not stupid. The politicians they control are, and the journalists those politicians rely upon for their image are, but the real power players are not. If they were stupid, they wouldn’t win all the time.

And if they’re not stupid, then they must just be evil. They want Western civilisation destroyed and the rest of the world depopulated. There is no other workable explanation for why the climate cult has been pushed onto the people of the West, while East Asia has been given everything they need to industrialise and surpass us.

We will pay dearly for our stupidity and the corruption of our elites.

The purpose of this article is not to scare you. It’s to prepare you. This thing is real.

Winter isn’t coming. It’s here.

We have made plans at our house to become food-independent within three years. We must go back to being food producers as well as consumers, like our forefathers were.

For us, it’s also been an opportunity to reimagine what we think of as ‘the good life’.

That’s not me, but you get the picture. We’ve chosen to focus on indoor growing because, although most parts of mainland Australia will not experience glaciation, drought will be widespread, sunlight will be reduced, the weather will become more erratic and average temperatures will be significantly lower.

And while Australians might not experience starvation, I don’t think we’ll want to eat what Big Sister comes up with as solutions.

    Vertical farming is the way of the future. We will be growing food on our walls.

    • fimbulwinter

      Too bad big sister will probably make that illegal too.

    • This is something I’ve had my head in for a while now, and I agree strongly that this is the future, but unfortunately there have been charlatans who have made some outlandish claims about vertical farming. The yields and water and energy use claims are usually bogus. I think it’s a bit like cryptos – it will be the solution in the future, but not in the utopian ways the hucksters have claimed. Getting quality seed and reliable power & water will be the key challenges imo.

    Another ripper article as usual David mate!

    Let’s see how many NPCs care about muh tranny rights and waycism when they’re starving and have no electricity to keep warm.

  • Bucky Redux

    Soylent Green,anyone ?

  • Harry Stottle

    Well at least the snowfall will be more reliable during ski season. Every cloud…

  • thegentlemantroll

    Indians might struggle to adjust to a colder Australia. I’m sure that will come as a great disappointment to many.


    During the Grand Solar Minimum, should infrastructure collapse which includes electricity, just in time deliveries, be prepared that the Pharmaceutical factories will not be able to operate. If anyone here wants information on medicine for the Grand Solar Minimum, this is one of them:

    Can we just kick out the immigrants already? We may not have starvation but we will have conflict and it will almost certainly be racial.

    Wonderful times ahead.

  • Bumpstock

    I hope you’re right, fucking hate Australian summers!

  • Dan Flynn

    Well David, it sounds like global ‘warmists’ and ‘coolists’ have a fundamental thing in common: both are increasingly growing their own food. My family certainly is. Who says we can’t get along?

    • You know, if you make serious preparations for warming you’ll be better prepared for cooling, and vice versa. Most lefties are just virtue-signalling about climate change though imo.

      If there’s one thing the (Chi-com Muslim lizard globalist scum) don’t want, it’s us getting along.

      • Dan Flynn

        Well, regardless of climate change orientation, if people are becoming more independent and less reliant on the ‘powers that be’ then we might have a chance…

      • Bucky Redux

        I fear that the NPC climate change globalist groupies and their Overlords will find some sort of leverage to blame humans for the solar disruptions and coming mini ice age.

        “muh climate change” shills are gonna shill, they just adapt the narrative…..

    Thanks for spreading the word, David — I would appreciate a link to when you source your material from mine.

    Keep it up.
