  1. Solar Cycle 24 is now on the wane… but we are still seeing headlines about the great potential threats of solar storms. The headlines should instead be about our sun possibly going dormant, and then the soon to be unusable Canadian crop land. It only takes slightly cooler and wetter springs to mess up wheat crops not only in Canada, but as far south as Oklahoma. The threshold is not hard to cross. We saw it begin to happen just a few years ago at the end of the last minimum, when Oklahoma’s and Kansas’ wheat crops were severely damaged after a long persistent winter dragged on until the end of April with killing freezes.
