For most of this summer, much of the U.S. has been hit by historic heatwaves, crippling drought and unprecedented wildfires. But if the long-term forecasts that I am about to share with you are accurate, this winter could be bitterly, bitterly cold. The sun appears to be entering into a period of early hibernation, and that is a very troubling sign. The primary driver of climate conditions is the giant ball of fire that our planet revolves around, and that ball of fire is beginning to behave in irregular ways. Sunspot activity is way, way below what was expected for this year, and that is one of the reasons why so many are calling for a “big freeze” this winter. And if we experience an extended “solar minimum”, that could mean significantly reduced temperatures and crop failures all over the planet. At other times in history, such a scenario has meant global famine.

But for the moment, most of the focus is still on the extremely hot and dry summer that we have been enduring. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 131 million people in this country are currently experiencing “abnormal dryness and drought”.

Things have been particularly bad in the Southwest where cities such as Phoenix have been dealing with high temperatures above 100 degrees for weeks at a time…

An increasing number of cities face extreme heat for much of the summer, with highs surpassing 100 and even 110 degrees for weeks at a time. Even in the final days of August, Phoenix is sweltering at 107 and San Antonio at 104.

Such relentless, triple-digit temperatures — the equivalent danger of rising seas in many coastal communities — are straining power grids, buckling roads, grounding planes and endangering lives. The Phoenix area reached a dubious record last year: at least 155 heat-related deaths.

At the same time, there has been very little rain in the Southwest, and that has resulted in historically bad drought conditions.

According to Drought.gov, 10 different states are currently dealing with “extreme” or “exceptional” droughts…

Scorching heatwaves across the United States have contributed to massive wildfires, and to make matters worse the dry weather has also led to extreme droughts.

Large chunks of the country are now facing dire times due to the droughts.

According to Drought.gov – the official monitor of droughts in the US – 10 states are facing “extreme” or “exceptional” droughts, the highest categories in the ranking system.

If you go to U.S. Drought Monitor, you can see that the worst drought conditions are in areas that also experienced the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. Many believe that we are witnessing the return of Dust Bowl conditions, and that has very serious implications for the future of our nation.

Meanwhile, this has also been one of the worst years for wildfires in our history. It is being reported that over 100 wildfires are currently burning around the nation, and that includes three of the largest fires in California history.

At one time the heart of fire season was confined to just a few months, but now fighting fires in America never seems to end…

National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) spokeswoman Jennifer Jones added: “We’re not calling it a fire season anymore, we’re referring to a fire year.”
