Discover What Killed the Dinosaurs . . . and Why it Could Soon Kill Us

Could 2011 be the Year Without Summer?

26 July 2010 - (Excerpts) - It happened in 1816 and is bound to happen again.

In 1816 the northern hemisphere suffered through the year without summer.  During the previous winter the Mt Tambora volcano erupted.  Thousands froze to death due to the bitter cold the atmospheric ash clouds created.

Frost killed most of the early crops as late as May that year in North America.  Frost and snow killed even crops more in June.  Riots, arson, and looting flared up in Europe as common food stores became scarce.  Lake and river ice were recorded in Pennsylvania in July and August.  1816 also was a year of historic low solar activity as measured by 1816 era telescopes counting sunspots.

All the stars, including our own, are aligning for a repeat performance by Mother Nature.


Even with 21st century telescopes we can see that the sun is only producing tiny sun specks and weak sunspots.

The northern hemisphere has experienced 3 years in a row of record breaking cold winters and snow fall. It snowed in all 50 States last winter. As in 1816, Canada and the rest of North America are experiencing record rainfalls this summer.  Much of the Canadian harvest has been lost due to flooding.  Some of the ski slopes in the western US reopened in July.  Today, South America is experiencing a brutally cold winter killing farmers along with their livestock.  It snowed in the Amazon.  For two years in a row it has snowed in Australia during summertime.

And Katla is well past due to blow her top.
