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 the same, though their source is the sun.
Both Galactic and Solar Cosmic rays hitting Earth’s atmosphere create aerosols which, in turn, seed clouds (Svensmark et al) — making them an important player in our weather and climate.
Recent balloon flights by Spaceweather.com and Earth to Sky Calculus show that cosmic rays are intensifying:
During solar minimum, like the one we’re entering now, the sun’s magnetic field weakens and the outward pressure of the solar wind decreases.
This allows more cosmic rays from deep space to penetrate our planet’s atmosphere:
With this being a Grand Solar Minimum we’re entering, Cosmic Rays should be off the charts — and that’s exactly what we’re seeing:
Along with an uptick in localised precipitation, there are other major climatic implications to increased cloud cover:
“Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade, and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming — or global cooling.” — Dr. Roy Spencer.
The upshot of our descent into this next Grand Solar Minimum –-and resulting increase in Cosmic Rays-– will be a cooling of the planet.
Latest predictions have us falling as much 2C below baseline, which would likely prove catastrophic for our modern food production.
Earth’s ever-accelerating Pole Shift is further amplifying the Cosmic Ray situation.
We have two lines of defence against CRs: our magnetic field and our atmosphere.
Our magnetosphere is waning at an increasing rate as north and south magnetic poles continue their wander, with some predictions putting a meeting point over Indonesia within the next few years.
Previous magnetic excursions and reversals have led to an uptick in volcanic and seismic activity, solar outbursts and the onset of ice ages.
When ice ages begin, they can begin incredibly fast.
At the end of the Eemian, for example, the climate descended from a period of warmth such as today’s into full-blown glacial severity in less than twenty years.
These two independent factors occurring simultaneously —Grand Solar Minimum and Pole Shift— are throwing us something of a curve ball. Each results in a dramatic waning of our magnetosphere, the upshot of which is more Cosmic Rays entering our atmosphere nucleating clouds, sending volcanoes a’popping and affecting biology on the planet.
Modern civilization is entering unprecedented times.

Grand Solar Minimum + Pole Shift = influx of Cosmic Rays + CMEs = uptick in Seismic and Volcanic Activity, increased Cloud Nucleation, Cooling + Grid Failure
