Rare Summer Cold Front Means a Chilly Fourth of July for Texas, as Latest USDA Crop Figures sound the Alarm Bells and see prices “Explode Higher”
Before I get onto the meat & potatoes of the article (or should that be the corn & soybeans), an Earth-facing coronal mass ejection (CME) left the sun on June 29 and is now fast-approaching — ETA: Saturday, July 3.
It’s only a minor CME, according to analysis by NOAA, and the resulting impact should be minor as well — but given our planet’s ever-waning magnetic field (due to the ongoing magnetic excursion/reversal), who knows what it might deliver…
High-latitude auroras are likely, with geomagnetic storms also a strong possibility.
We were hit by a similar shock wave Wednesday, June 30 — an event which was not in the forecast
As explained by Dr Tony Phillips of spaceweather.com, a low-amplitude interplanetary shock wave hit Earth’s magnetic field during the early hours of June 30:
The event sparked mid-summer auroras over Canada:
We don’t know where this shock wave came from, writes Dr Phillips.
It might be the early arrival of the June 27 CME, originally expected July 1st.
Or perhaps a different stealthy CME that flew under the radar when it left the sun.
Either way, it is a sign of the times as even minor solar perturbations continue to have a larger and larger impact on Earth’s weakening magnetosphere.
An X-flare will hit soon enough.
And when it does, you’d best be prepare for life off the grid.
Rare Summer Cold Front Means a Chilly Fourth of July for Texas
North Texans can expect a colder-than-normal holiday weekend, thanks to a rare July cold front, reports dallasnews.com.
Such fronts are rare during the summer because temperatures typically are too hot for cooler air to push its way into the region, but given the historically low solar activity we’re been experiencing in recent years and its known impacts on the jet streams, this year’s polar invasion comes as no real surprise.
The Dallas-Fort Worth area generally sees its first triple-digit temperatures of the year in late-June/early-July — but not this year. The stark cold front is expected to move in Friday and bring with it a chance for rain.
Highs on Friday will be in the mid 80s, and while that may seen toasty to some, that’s a full 10-14C below the norm for the time of year, according to KXAS-TV (NBC5) chief meteorologist Rick Mitchell.
The Pacific Northwest’s heat may be garnering ALL the propagandizing MSM headlines, but a monster negative temperature anomaly has been holding over central regions for well-over a week now, which is expected to persist for at least the next 10 days.
Here’s Tuesday, July 6:
Wednesday, July 7:
And Monday, July 12:
The negative anomaly currently engulfing South America is also holding strong, to the detriment of local farmers:
If you are one of the ill-informed that falls for the factual-contortions of the MSM, and believes that the Pacific Northwest’s heat is somehow indicative of the rest of the planet (i.e. global warming) then you are mistaken.
According to the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine, the average temperature on planet is –as of today, July 2– a mere 0.2C above the 1979-2000 base — hardly signs of an imminent fiery doom, and nowhere near the ‘plucked from thin-air’ tipping point temperature threshold of 2C below pre-industrial levels.
Furthermore, this reading (of +0.2C) is among the warmest temperature anomalies seen all year — negative anomalies have actually been the dominating feature in recent months.
This is your catastrophic anthropogenic global warming:
Latest USDA Crop Figures sound the Alarm Bells
Consistent cold isn’t good for crops. According to latest USDA figures, the situation in 2021 is looking far worse than their original projections foresaw, and the commodity markets are climbing as a result.
Grains have “exploded higher” after the initial release of the USDA Stocks and Acreage Reports this week.
There were some big surprises in the report.
Arlan Suderman, Chief Commodities Economist at of StoneX gives us the rundown:
“The prices literally exploded higher after the reports’ release,” said Suderman — this was in response to a “smaller acreage than expected for corn and soybeans … The corn acreage came in at 92.7 million acres … that was about 1.1 million acres below what the trade expected (which was already low).”
Soybean acres were an even bigger surprise, continued Suderman, which came in at 87.55 million acres with the trade expecting 88.95 million acres.
“Stocks being less than expected for corn, soybeans and wheat (have sent) the markets off to the races,” he said.
Corn stocks are currently estimated to be at 4.11 billion bushels, which is down a whopping 18% when compared to the same time of last year — this is despite a 2% increase in planting acreage on 2020.
Looking forward, Suderman sees roll-on implications for July’s crop reports.
Expect higher prices moving ahead.
Watch out for inflation, too — the insidious thief.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own (the USDA also reported that 93 percent of all corn acres planted this year in the U.S. are biotech varieties (aka GMO) — you don’t want to be pumping this garbage into your body).
