So, I was recently watching Curtis Stone this week.
He definitely has his own views on things, but this time he caught me off guard more than usual.
He interviewed this guy Christian Westbrook of http://www.iceagefarmer.com
Apparently the theory is that this solar cycle we're moving into (Solar Cycle 25) is, they say, going to show reduced energy emission from the sun. It sounds a little conspiracy-theory-ish, but what's notable to me is that the data and solar predictions themselves seem to all be coming from NASA, so, genuinely credible stuff.
Of course, then they take it and run with it, and add their own interpretation about what that will mean for the climate and/or global food supply. I don't know that anyone would agree with 100% of everything they say, but if you can let that run off your back, there is a lot to ponder here.
Also, they quote Mollison, so they can't be all bad, #amiright :)
So I dunno. What do you guys think? Are we headed for a solar minima and/or a sort of "mini ice age"?
I guess the practical take-home they recommend, "increase resilience (for whatever may come) by building healthy soil", is something that we can all agree upon!
