ELMIRA, N.Y. — Torrential rains and flooding have caused pumpkins, and other crops, to be severely impacted this season — Galactic Cosmic Rays and cloud nucleation to blame.
Charlie Todd, owner of Chamberlain Acres, forecasts the price of pumpkins spiking this year due to a loss in the crop.
The rain has caused pumpkins to either rot earlier or not grow as big — too much water will suffocate the plant.
Todd is noticing that some of his smaller pumpkins are already starting to rot due to the excessive moisture.
During solar minimum, like the GSM 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 earth’s atmosphere.
The work of H. Svensmark, M.B. Enghoff, N. Shaviv and J. Svensmark attributes Cosmic Rays to cloud nucleation here on earth.
More clouds can mean more precipitation, as well as global cooling.
