Last week, The Lima News wrote a piece about the weather. Last month, I wrote a piece about the economy. Interestingly, the weather was a major component of my long-term economic forecast.

You see, the Earth is moving into a cooling cycle that some scientists have dubbed a mini ice age. By 2025, temperatures will be about 12 degrees cooler than normal.

While some may say that’s fine, farmers will be struggling with crop failures year after year. Thar’s because the growing season will be too short and too cold. That means food shortages. That means people going hungry. That means riots in the streets. That means social collapse.

Add to that the certain demise of the financial system and the expanded wars, and it’s not a pretty picture.

The last mini ice age was in the 1600s. At that time, there weren’t many people in the United States, so there wasn’t much written here. But, there was a lot written in Europe, and they got hammered. It was a dark time, bubonic plague, malaria, clan warfare, and famine. Eventually, Ireland lost half it’s population, mostly to starvation. Sadly, some desperate Europeans resorted to cannibalism.

If, right now you’re starting to think we are cruising toward a crisis of biblical proportions, wait until I tell you the juicy part.

Taken into consideration the fact that humans are subjected to vaccine poisoning, atmospheric poisoning, and food poisoning, every day, and some have concluded that we are headed for the sixth great extinction. The fifth being the extinction of the dinosaurs.
