This is from the Market Oracle By David Petch, he delivers the trading aspect to world markets when the Sun is seen to be responsible to the world warming and cooling.
A very well researched article, lots of link's on original article, here is some of the things David Petch has to say.....
The next theory of the global weather patterns is global cooling, which is in part regulated by the sunspot cycle. Visiting www.spaceweather.com , it is clearly evident there are no sunspots. The sunspot cycle was “supposed to have seen increased global drought until the cycle peaked in 2011 with massive solar disruptions to the electrical grids. This event did not happen, which draws to question that the next 10-20 years could see a global decline in temperatures by 4-5 o C. The year 2007 saw the global temperature decline by 0.7 o C. This does not sound like much but it is huge from a global perspective. Manitoba saw the month of May 2008 have temperatures 4 o C below normal, which has drastically reduced the growth of vegetation. It the trend continues this summer, there will be crops, albeit at reduced levels.
One other item often overlooked that triggered previous ice ages is the Gulf Stream . Recent evidence suggests the Gulf Stream has weakened by 30% over the past 12 years. This link suggests what “can” happen when the gulf stream slows down.
So, what happens, global warming or global cooling? I think the next 10-15 years are going to witness global cooling, which will later see a reversion to global warming from 2025, lasting up to 10-20 years. By 2025 the amount of CO 2 put into the atmosphere on a yearly basis will be reduced by 60-80%, so the item of focus beyond 2050 is a reversion to an ice age. Consider this if you will…If 3 feet/year of snow accumulates for 100 years, that is 300 feet, that could be compressed down to 20-25 feet. Multiply this by 500 to give a 5000 year period and 20 feet quickly becomes 2000 feet, just shy of ½ mile of ice.
The moment to focus on is now and the source of our life (the sun) is not casting sunspots on Earth. There will be reduced crop yields globally this year, so that 50% increase in food production mentioned earlier in the article is a pipe dream. I have not seen any 40 pound bags of Basmati rice at our store the past 3 weeks, which cost $39/bag at the time. There were 10 pound bags of Basmati, but priced at $17/bag…this would equate to a doubling in the price of rice. I met a pleasant elderly gentleman from India in the checkout line and he told me how “really bad” the rice shortages were over in India . One thing he mentioned is that the price of fuel is so high that the amount of crop waste is actually on the rise.
