The Sun Is Shutting Down For A Couple Millennium Or Thereabouts

Routine maintenance. No need to panic unless you are a freakish anomaly of the Holocene. Also known as Neanderthal weather. What did I do with my beach umbrella and sunning towels? This planet doesn't feel right until it hits at least 20 below.

Another phenomena the Neanderthal was very familiar with, it was like changing his underwear. Now you know why they lived in those caves. The only thing that ever killed the Neanderthal was Homo Sapiens. Everything else he was all over, all the time. No such thing as an unprepared 'Thal. Every day is jump day for 'Thals. That's the type of person it takes to live on this planet long term.

Can't wait. Winter is my favorite season, cold energizes me.

I'm thankful for summer and sunshine and my garden, but I also like breathing which is something I find difficult to do in summer, air too hot and thick to do anything.

This is just an idea. There was a guy who was looking at the pictures from the satellites we have photographing the Sun. He said he saw a large structure inside a sunspot. Like a mountain. After one rotation he saw almost the same structure. This gave him an idea for a hypothesis. The Sun has a coating of slag. Kind of like welding slag that is lighter elements floating on top. This slag separates electric charges. When the electric charges build up enough arcs go across the Sun. Just like an electric arc welding machine. This idea fits in very well with the Sun outside being hotter than the inside.

I'm going to take this line of thought a little further. His model would explain Solar Flares as arcs to equalize the electric charges in the Sun. The solar cycle could be a build up of lighter elements on the surface. These lighter elements "slag" would keep the normal equalization of charges from happening until a big enough charge was created to break through the slag. Once broken through you would have a period of time of many Sunspots or flares. Many would be small flares but sometimes very large ones. This process would happen during the normal solar cycle.

What about ice ages. Over time lighter elements are built up that have a MUCH larger resistance. I mean that they resist being broken down by electric charges. This would slow or stop the sunspot cycle.

The end of an Ice age would be enormous flares from the 90,000 years or so that the electric charges built up by the resistant slag. How does the slag not immediately reform. The large flares would fuse the slag into heavier elements which would sink deeper into the Sun. This would clear the surface and allow the electric charges to equalize with smaller flares.

There is some evidence that fits this pattern. The floods in Wyoming that carried boulders the size of houses.
The black matte of charred matter in some strata.

Then why isn't all life on Earth extinct? The flares must be large but short in time. Blasting one side of the Earth. The Americas seem to have had the worst of it. Maybe the electrical resistance is less on this side of the Earth. There are magnetic portals connecting Earth to the Sun at times.
I don't know this for a fact but I predict that they are more prevalent in the American hemisphere.

What makes the electric charges in the Sun. I don't know. It would be important to find this out.

This part is a little more speculative as I've not really fleshed it out yet. I'm just thinking out loud here.
The Earths magnetic field is based or influenced by the Sun. Maybe just it's strength. Maybe the extra slag covering during ice ages makes this influence weaker. When this first happens at the beginning of the ice age volcanos erupt at a higher frequency. The Earths weakened magnetic field ceases to pin the molten core. It may be a dynamo effect. The Suns field influences currents in the core that organize it. When this ceases the core becomes disorganized and its pressure rises in areas that were before organized into paths or regions. The stress in the previously organized regions over time were released earlier so we wouldn't notice they were there. Now when the regions change due to reduced fields or whatever the stress breaks through the mantle in weak places. Mass volcanic eruptions.

Conclusions for vault survivalist. Volcanic eruptions are the primary threat at the beginning of an Ice age. Stay away from volcanos or down wind from volcanos. A guess would be this would be a world wide phenomenon. Filters for your shelter would be important. A cyclone system like on vacuum cleaners would not get stopped up, could be emptied and reused. Deep and many staged cyclone systems would filter smaller particles. Volcanos will reduce light from the Sun. Crops would need to be fast maturing or you would have to watch the timing of planting very carefully. The planting season chart would change. Plant and select your crops for a higher latitude. A six moth supply of food would likely be enough for the vast majority of the rabble to die off. The rabble left would probably be very aggressive, smart and dangerous. A one or two years worth of food might allow most of the super aggressive rabble to be killed off. Not sure about this but I think the more aggressive over time the more likely to be killed. Earthquakes likely as the molten core settles into a new equilibrium. Have a stable roof over your head.

When the Ice ends stay away from the American hemisphere. Good to start memes and legends about the evils of the American hemisphere until the weather gets warmer to defeat the ice dragon or whatever.

What do you think? Plausible?

Look in the article and this is the first time I've ever seen a scientist say this.

"...They’ve found that Earth’s magnetic field is in a permanent state of flux. Magnetic north drifts and every few hundred thousand years the polarity flips so a compass would point south instead of north..."

The point being the 100K year cycle.
I've read about it in Robert Felix book but never read a scientist saying it's true. Always before they said that it was way way back when this happened.

Makes me wonder if the government doesn't know more than what they are saying. Maybe all the rumors of underground shelters with years of food is true. Hard to make ammo if the society is doomed. Maybe their stocking up for the big freeze and know when it's going to happen with much more precision than they let on. Could it be all the Mayan prophecies are about the ice age coming?

The population of Earth in deep freeze conditions is WAY too high. I expect it will change drastically.

If the US government cared at all about it's people it would have a grain storage system like we used to have. The government paid silo fees all over the nation to keep extra grain stocked. We could plant fence row to fence row for a couple of years and build it back up. Doubt this will happen. Ronald Regan defunded the grain storage program. Of course I voted for him so I guess I'm partly to blame but I acted on incomplete information.

Here's a not so perfect rewrite of last speculation part not so garbled.

This part is a little more speculative as I've not really fleshed it out yet. I'm just thinking out loud here.
The Earths magnetic field is based or influenced by the Sun. Maybe just it's strength or geometric configuration. The extra slag covering on the Sun during ice ages makes the magnetic/electric field of the Sun weaker as seen on the Earth. A possible mechanism? Here's quote from a page by William J. Beaty The quote is just below fig. 9. What he's discussing is Teslas electrical transmission without wires.

"...This stuff can only work if there is a dielectric substance coating the Earth. Without that coating, the waves will not slow and bend to follow the curve of the Earth, they will just fly out into space. The atmosphere supplies this coating, and the resistive earth also helps to slow the waves so they bend to follow the surface. And even better, there is a conductive ionosphere which will act a lot like the "shield" of a coaxial cable and force the waves to go around the Earth..."

He's talking about the Earth but the same could be said for the Sun. The difference being dielectric substance coating the Sun would short circuit the fields emission into space and in turn influencing the Earth.

Possibly the slag shuts down the "magnetic portal" from the Sun to the Earth. The Earth's core organization changes due to the field of the Sun changing. This creates more stress in the core. The core moves from one equilibrium to another. When this first happens at the beginning of the ice age volcanos erupt at a higher frequency due to the reorganization of the core and the huge stresses this causes.
