Cosmic Ray Flux and Global Cooling: the implications are upon us

[Article originally published on on April 30, 2021]

GALACTIC Cosmic Rays are a mixture of high-energy photons and sub-atomic particles accelerated toward Earth by supernova explosions and other violent events in the cosmos; SOLAR Cosmic Rays are effectively the same, only their source is the Sun. and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus have been launching cosmic ray balloons almost weekly since March 2015–before the pandemic threw a spanner in.

The team’s published results reveal that atmospheric radiation reached record highs just as solar activity hit a new space age low — the correlation is clear for all to see, with additional proxy data revealing it has been the case for time-immemorial.

During solar minimums –the low point of the 11 year solar cycle– the Sun’s magnetic field weakens and the outward pressure of the solar wind decreases. This allows more cosmic rays (CRs) to penetrate the inner solar system, including our planet’s atmosphere:

Cosmic Rays correlating with Sunspots.

Radiation levels have been increasing almost non-stop since the Earth to Sky Calculus monitoring program began, with the latest flights in Dec, 2019 (fig.1) and early-2020 (fig.2) registering new all-time highs:

(Fig.2) — The newest data from Abisko, Sweden show the increase is not limited to the stratosphere. It is also happening at aviation altitudes with a 3-year increase of ~12% even below 40,000 ft. 

If this is indeed a Grand Solar Minimum we’re headed into then cosmic rays should be trending off the charts, and that is exactly what we’re seeing:

Researchers at the Sodankyla Geophysical Observatory have been monitoring cosmic rays since 1964.

When CRs hit Earth’s atmosphere they produce a spray of secondary particles that rain down on Earth’s surface (visualized in the below image). Among these particles are neutrons. Detectors, such as those in Oulu, count these neutrons as a proxy for cosmic rays.

Below is another look at the correlation between CRs and the Sun.

The top panel demonstrates the natural waxing and waning of cosmic rays with the 11-year solar cycle. It shows that during Solar Maximum cosmic rays are weak, and, conversely, during Solar Minimum they are strong.


Cosmic rays are bad–and they’re going to get worse. That’s the conclusion of a 2020 study entitled “Galactic Cosmic Radiation in Interplanetary Space Through a Modern Secular Minimum.”

The type of radiation produced by cosmic rays is the same used in medical X-ray machines and airport security scanners. This radiation has increased by more than 20% in the stratosphere, according to data.

Cosmic rays penetrate commercial jets, delivering whole-body dosages equal to one or more dental X-rays even on regular flights across the USA. Cosmic rays pose an even greater hazard to astronauts, as you would expect. They can also alter the electro-chemistry of Earth’s upper atmosphere, sparking lightning.

“During the next solar cycle, we could see cosmic ray dose rates increase by as much as 75%,” said lead author Fatemeh Rahmanifard of the University of New Hampshire’s Space Science Center. “This will limit the amount of time astronauts can work safely in interplanetary space.”

No amount of spacecraft shielding can stop the most energetic cosmic rays, leaving astronauts exposed whenever they leave the Earth-Moon system. Back in the 1990s, astronauts could travel through space for as much as 1000 days before they hit NASA safety limits on radiation exposure. Not anymore. According to the new research, cosmic rays will limit trips to as little as 290 days for 45-year old male astronauts, and 204 days for females (men and women have different limits because of unequal dangers to reproductive organs).

However, far more crucial than limiting jollies into space –and ending fantasies of colonizing Mars– cosmic rays hitting Earth’s atmosphere have been found to seed clouds (Svensmark et al), with cloud cover playing the most important role in our planet’s short-term climate change.

“Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade,” writes Dr. Roy Spencer, “and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming — or global cooling.”

And so it stands, while an overturning of ocean currents, a reduction in TSI, an increase in ice/snow albedo, or a VEI 6+ volcanic eruption are all capable of reducing Earth’s terrestrial temperature, all that is actually required is an uptick in CRs (check) and a corresponding increase in cloud cover (check).

The upshot of the historically weak solar minimum of cycle 24 –the Sun’s deepest of the past 100+ years (NASA)– combined with the further waning observed during cycle 25, and the forecast intensification into 26 (and beyond), will be a cooling of the planet.

We’re already seeing it. According to the satellites, the global average temperature is some 0.43C off its early-2016 high, and dropping…

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

        Gee, I might get my little feelings hurt if I didn’t know where all of this vitriol was coming from.

        Demonic spirits don’t like me very much, but I’ve been on the receiving end before and that just tells me I’m on the right track.

        Sweetheart, you may think it’s all fun and games now, but there is a heavy price to pay in the end.

        Proverbs 13
        12 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
        13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.

            1. Deb

              I doubt that anyone who really knew me and really knew you would say that I am holier than thou. I certainly don’t say it.

              I’m just saved, and eternally grateful to God for it.

              We just prove the truth of His Word when He says, “There is none perfect, no not one.”

      Insects have an exoskeleton (meaning their bones are on the outside of their bodies). One important element of those exoskeletons is chitin. Not only is chitin toxic to humans but it can also make your immune system go haywire and cause inflammation.
      According to a study done in 2018, humans can’t synthesize chitin. Consuming the proteins in chitin over a long period of time can cause tissue damage and deficiencies in vitamins A and E. People need vitamin A for a healthy immune system. Vitamin E is crucial to eliminating the free radicals that damage the cells in your body.

      Well Praise the Lord… God and eugenics and natural section work in many wonderful and often strange ways.

        September 24 — sounds familiar…

        1. Father Mulcahy

          You were hoping for the second coming of JC or the rapture perhaps… Xi Jingping looks to have been put on house arrest (and/or sidelined during a Chinese military coup) as China is overtly mobilizing for war. No “biggy” relative to JC showing up again floating down from Heaven on a cloud for the non-secular(s) I’m sure.

          “Nothing will be the same” is the same as saying everything is going to change. Since no limitations were given, I believe the magnitude of these changes will be very big, impacting everything, everywhere and everyone, so we won’t have to wonder whether or not this happens because it will be way too big to miss.
          “After September 25, 26,” reveals the start without revealing any ending date, so I think that means these changes will continue indefinitely with no going back to the way things were before.
          Although that sounds extreme, I believe it’s just a confirmation of scriptural prophecies regarding the generation living at the time of the Lord’s return, which I believe is our generation. Jesus identified major changes coming upon the world at that time, as shown in examples later in this post. (Matthew 24) Other scriptures reveal those changes will only accelerate as the day of His return approaches. (Revelation 6-19) Since Hebrew days begin and end at sunset instead of midnight, it takes two days on the Roman calendar to complete one day on the Hebrew calendar. So the first day of Rosh Hashanah this year begins at sunset on September 25 and ends at sunset on September 26. So I think the alignment with Rosh Hashanah is beyond coincidence and gives us the key to the interpretation. Since it marks the start of a new year, this is not about a one-day event. We might see absolutely nothing unusual happening on that particular day, but as the new year unfolds, we’ll be able to look back on it as a major turning point. I believe it will mark more than just the start of a new year, but the beginning of a new season that will continue for many years, making it a major milestone on heaven’s calendar. Since the dates point to Rosh Hashanah, I concluded this warning must be for 2022 because I searched through 2040 and found the only time it’s on September 25-26 is in 2022. The Roman calendar dates for Rosh Hashanah vary from year to year because the Hebrew calendar is based on lunar cycles while the Roman calendar is based on solar cycles. Jesus is Lord and often works in mysterious ways that are not always reported on TV in real time. Patience. Have faith that SHTF is coming God willing and Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammo.

        2. Father Mulcahy


          Church Ladies have been persecuted from the beginning but Jesus warned there will be an increase before He returns. (Matthew 24:9) History and the scriptures both reveal the primary source for this will be the Mother of Harlots.

          I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. (Revelation 17:6 NKJV)

          In recent years, this culprit has made great strides in silencing the voice of Church Ladies in major media platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Their goal is to silence the truth by shutting down anyone who dares to share anything contrary to their fake news narrative. We can expect to see far more authoritarian measures ahead as more truth is outlawed, especially if we bow down to the beast. God will back those who stand courageously for Him.

          Good News:
          Jesus said these things would be “the beginning of sorrows”. No one likes trouble or the sorrows it brings but God has good reasons for allowing these changes because without them, multitudes would continue following their present course which is leading to their destruction, which is not God’s will, but is due to their own refusal to humble themselves before Him. If He allowed things to continue unchanged, these lost souls would continue to ignore and reject Him and would be in great danger of being separated from Him for all eternity. So it is by His grace and mercy that these shakings will cause many to fall to their knees and cry out to Him for help and when they do, He will be there to help them. So the end result of these events will bring great eternal rewards as they usher in the greatest harvest of souls in history. (Isaiah 60:1-5, Amos 9:13-15, Haggai 2:6-9, Zechariah 2:10-12, Matthew 13:24-30, Mark 10:28-30, Mark 16:15-18, John 12:32-33, Acts 1:7-8)

          Jesus said, “There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10) So, imagine how great the celebrations in heaven will be when great multitudes repent.

          Bless the Beasts and the Church Ladies.

    I notice the reporting agencies will run behind quite a bit. For instance too bad we don’t have the reports that would relate to the 2021 702 Texan kill shot!


    1. Dirk Pitt

      The Texas deep freeze followed solar flares, the cold front came through here days before and I’d already been watching the cyclone all the way across the Pacific Ocean. I had data saved on my last pute which blew up shortly after.
      The Pacific cyclone combined with another cyclone over Hudson Bay and they rotated in a Fujiwhara Effect hurling the cold air due south.
      I was doing play by plays of the event at Ice Age Now but all that data went bye bye. To find data for the event all one would have to do is go back in the archives at Space Weather, SolarHam, Space Weather News, Daily Events Worldwide or World News Reports Today if you want to see reports on what happened prior to the Texas freeze. It started with planetary alignments, hit SimSolar to see where the planets were, then watch the flares, volcanos, and the cyclones to make that cold front.

    that does not interest the people only the elites know and prepare for it of all the people is condemned between the financial banking collapse agricultural all the economy is going to pass there and more than 80% is injected their life expectancy is from 2 to 5 years at best
    at my humble level I tried to alert result I look like a mental patient

    winter is coming hunger is coming war is coming and the geo climatic mess is coming too
    we are far beyond 1984 of orwell the brave new the world is already there

    here in France in province it is necessary to listen to the level of the conversations it is appalling beer food sport cars vacations television cinema etc they do not know with the banking arcana with the conditioning of mass since the birth
    they are unaware of all the system in which they live or survive much of people start to suffer from the precariousness and the inflation

    they think that the state is a good father who protects his dear children/citizens
    if they knew that they are only slaves who ignore their condition they would decompensate
    but the majority does not want and cannot understand you can present them with all the objective evidence they start to discriminate against you and in the end they become aggressive and become the best collaborators of the system that will lead them to the slaughterhouse ;

    Cap: Unfortunately, our US “President” is tipping the scales against anyone who does not agree with the current hypnotic narrative. We already have 2 marriages, husband is a Dem and the wife is conservative. One wife is coning down with migraines. We live in a blue county, turning blue-er even more. In this inflationary time, we can’t really move. Our city hit the news for rising crime rate just a month ago. Homeless all over, and they are given bus tickets to come here! In time, the book 1984 will seem like child’s play. I see the cold times coming. Got wood, garden, produce, food, but no one around me is thinking at all on anything. Normalcy Bias on the whole thing. At least we have Cap who is giving us reality. Thanks Cap.

    1. Doktor Seltsamer Wetterliebhaber [from your note] –
      Wow, we’re already at the same level(s) of Stratospheric Radiation in July of 2022 [while still quite early in Solar Cycle 25 in a year that looks like we’ll have lots of sunspots with few Spotless Days] as we were at the peak of the Sunspots/Solar Maximum of Solar Cycle 24 in 2015. So if 2022 is already looking like what “we” were “half” expecting in 2025 does that mean Armageddon x-mas came early this time and Solar Cycle 25 could turn out to be a hotter – higher sunspot one or else it just “matured”/maxed out/blew its wad prematurely so to speak” and it’s all downhill GSM-wise for the rest of this Solar Cycle and/or from here on out?… or… Maybe Solar Cycle 25 will turn out to be the “Mother of all Perfect Storm/Goldilocks/Excitability Cycles”… ever… and the globalists gots better “crystal balls”/scientific think-tanks than us “ice-agers”.

      Solar History, Chapter 22: Presence and Future of Human Behaviour in relation to solar cycles
      By Sacha Dobler on 10. May 2019
      The minimum of this cycle (cycle 24) is expected in 2020, which is also the end of the cycle, but the sun had already reached the said minimum levels in early 2018. And the next Schwabe maximum is expected in 2024-2025,[or maybe much earlier as per the chart obs above] this will bring another probability of increased social excitability, uprisings and violence, although it is projected to be an even weaker maximum. [or not?]

      Near Future

      The Second Period[of the Schwabe cycle]: transition, growth of excitability.

      In the next solar cycle (25), this phase will correspond roughly with the years 2021-2023. The general characteristics of this period of the Schwabe cycle were summarized by Tchijevsky as follows:

      “Beginning of uniting of masses; new leaders appear, political, military, orators; new programs are worked out; increasing work and influence of the press; political and military questions arise and begin to predominate the masses.[x]

      Likely increased excitability in the next Schwabe Maximum 2023-2026
      The third Phase (Schwabe maximum; Period of (maximum excitability)
      [maybe early?]
      We must consider that between the two lows of 2020 and 2032, we are still facing the Schwabe- cycle maximum around 2025, even if it is a weak maximum. This bears a risk of civil wars and revolutions instigated by elitist, radical collectivist opinion shapers, plus it also bears the risk that a broad frustration over failed multiculturalism will flip into real racism and nationalist uprisings in disregard of the rule of law.

    Question Cap…
    The solar radiation in Metcalfe County KY has been at its highest 1250 wm2.
    I have read where the Maunder Minimum was caused by a reduction of just a few wm2. If 1378 wm2 is the normal, does this mean we are in for a new mini Ice Age?
    I understand a lot of things cause a cooling of the planets atmosphere but if the Sun’s output is this low…should I buy a condo on the Equator?!?
    Seriously…is our solar radiation rate normal for our area or…?
