Dead Silence

The Sun is going to take a nap now for a couple millennium. It's gone to sleep.

Smooth as a babies bottom for most of last year ... but now it's gone just placid and meek. It's July and the northern hemisphere has a climate more like winter in most places.

Globowarmthinkery was when fags talk about the apocalypse - a "heat wave." They'd be excessively tanned, a faux pas.

There is no terror like that of the cold. It smothers everything before it into silence.

I still expect some startling surge in 2012 before it flickers out forever on our tiny fragile civilization and the long night arrives.

"In Norse mythology, Fimbulwinter (Old Norse Fimbulvetr) is the immediate prelude to the end of the world, Ragnarök. Fimbulwinter is three successive winters where snow comes in from all directions, without any intervening summer. During this time, there will be innumerable wars and brothers will kill brothers."

Amazing, isn't it?

When no written records survive, the truth can only survive in myths and legends that will be remembered for their value as oral knowledge.

It is likely the Norsemen were repeating something that their ancestors had understood from ancient times long before they were established.

I don't see what the panic is....

It's a cycle. It looks like the prediction shows a low now, and will increase shortly. I guess we'll see if this graph is correct or not:

Nothing particularly spooky here.
