Grand solar minima occur in roughly 400 year cycles.

The most intense cycles happen about every 396 years with medium cooling cycles about every 207 years.

We are at the start of a grand solar minimum right now which began to phase in around 2016.

Global temperatures have been cooling about 1.5-3C per year since that time.

Conditions are likely to last until 2070 according to some projections.

For most of us, this will be the rest of our lives.

Researching the Wolf, Sporer, Maunder, and Dalton grand solar minima to learn more about what conditions were like during these periods of time can help us make educated choices about the ways in which we prepare for known issues which would be statistically likely to recur.

We need to carefully prepare for the possibility of life threatening conditions because grand solar minima can have dramatic impacts on both weather patterns and global food production.

If you have ever prepped for a hurricane, imagine prepping for conditions that last not only weeks but entire years during which, depending upon where you live, you may not be able to grow crops at all.

Regardless of “seasons,” if you live on or near the 45th parallel, growing plants without power and an indoor grow light setup will be pretty much impossible.

This would likely catch you off guard if you hadn’t done ample research, so we want to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Surviving what amounts to a mini Ice Age requires a great deal of foresight and planning which spans home, business, energy, infrastructure, food production, logistics, medical care, and many other facets of day to day life that we tend to take for granted.

To get a better idea of what this type of preparedness plan would entail, please read through this PDF provided by James Marusek, retired US Navy nuclear physicist and engineer of Bread and Butter Science.

[NOTE: On November 11, 2018, solar wind was blowing around Earth faster than 600 km/s. The onrushing gas sparked auroras over Norway in the shape of a Phoenix. "The aurora show over Senja, Norway, on Nov. 11th was nothing short of magical. During one outburst of lights, this image appeared. Huge colorful pillars took the shape of a fiery bird," reports photographer Adrien Mauduit.]

From the page: “The Large Angle and Spectrometric COronagraph (LASCO) instrument is one of 11 instruments included on the joint NASA/ESA SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) spacecraft. SOHO was launched on 2 December 1995 at 0808 UT (0308 EST) from the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida. The LASCO instrument is a set of three coronagraphs that image the solar corona from 1.1 to 32 solar radii. It is convenient to measure distances in terms of solar radii. One solar radius is about 700,000 km, 420,000 miles or 16 arc minutes. A coronagraph is a telescope that is designed to block light coming from the solar disk, in order to see the extremely faint emission from the region around the sun, called the corona. LASCO images have been used by the SWPC forecast office to characterize the solar corona heating and transient events, including CMEs, and to see the effects of the corona on the solar wind. More recently, the LASCO images are vital to the WSA-Enlil model that became operational in October of 2011. WSA-Enlil has become an important tool for forecasting the impact of Coronal Mass Ejections and the effects of the Solar Wind on the Earth.”

[NOTE: If a Coronal Mass Ejection occurs, LASCO is how to see it. If it has spread evenly around, it is likely to come towards Earth. A direct hit from a Coronal Mass Ejection takes about one to two days to reach Earth. Solar Wind Telemetry and Kp Index will show a clear spike after the CME hit.]

From the page: “The prediction gives a rough idea of the frequency of space weather storms of all types, from radio blackouts to geomagnetic storms to radiation storms, so is used by many industries to gauge the expected impact of space weather in the coming years.”

Space Weather Prediction Center. (2021). Space Weather Impacts on Climate. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. [online] Available here: https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/impacts/space-weather-impacts-climate

From the page: “The duration of solar minimum may also have an impact on Earth's climate. During solar minimum there is a maximum in the amount of Cosmic rays, high energy particles whose source is outside our Solar system, reaching earth. There is a theory that cosmic rays can create nucleation sites in the atmosphere which seed cloud formation and create cloudier conditions. If this were true, then there would be a significant impact on climate, which would be modulated by the 11-year solar cycle.”
