    This is a small taste of what’s to come over the next few winters and springs. The only type of “weather” that will happen is severe weather. Look up “grand solar minimum” if you want to learn more.

      Air pollution is causing our atmosphere to become conductive which in turn is weakening the Earth’s magnetosphere, which is a bad thing. Check out the Carrington event of 1859, good read on more fun to deal with.
