Dr. Anita Bailey, author of Cold Times: Preparing for the Mini Ice Age, joins Christian to discuss the intensifying changes in climate we are already experiencing, and how we can live better lives, both qualitatively and in preparedness. We also ran the gamut:
– damage reports from her area resulting from unstable growing season [3:26]
– how Anita was affected by the realization that we are entering “Cold Times” [14:55]
– spouses who aren’t able (or willing?) to switch into a self-reliant life [21:00]
– the censorship of climate truth can’t hold up to physical reality
– how people are being made to FEAR food.
… and what an exciting time it is to be alive and have worthwhile work to do!
START PREPARING AND SPREAD THE WORD!

Christian stresses the importance of spiritually-informed preparation and activism in the Grand Solar Minimum, and defines anti-fragility as a goal. Latest crop loss news: Vanilla beans more expensive than silver. World wheat production to fall in 2018, and grain stocks are to fall. Food price inflation is starting: even after Amazon’s Whole Foods interference, the seal is now breaking. Also: Kilaeau steam explosion possible.
This was before the continuing drought in the USA, which the USDA TODAY announced will be smallest winter wheat crop in over a decade:
Prices on the Futures are reacting to this news
Recognizing water as precious. Graywater. Storing water. Rainwater harvesting. Contour lines and flow of water over a site. Constructing and using A-frame level and bunyip level. Thoughts on medical preps.

Amid reports of blackouts from subscribers, Christian investigates regional reports from the US energy sector, exploring the effect of recent record cold temperatures resulting from the Grand Solar Minimum on our fragile power grid. As the Grand Solar Minimum intensifies, our infrastructure — from generation through transmission to distribution — is rapidly faltering.

a period during which solar activity diminishes, resulting in drastic climatic and geophysical changes to our planet. These include increased galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), seismic activity, and volcanism; the latter often results in a global reduction in temperatures (see "the year without a summer" -- and much more on the IAF wiki).
