This is a fascinating thread. I would like to throw in my observations.
If you look at the glaciation cycles of the past 1 mln years, the inter-glacial period lasts on average 10~12K. We are past 12K from the last Ice Age, so well overdue for its return. This is just a simple observation of the cycles. This time, however, we are dealing with the twin sun's presence in our solar system and its grounding effect on our Sun. So, we may expect low Sun spot count just like during the Maunder minimum. This will last probably for 80~100 years before the Sun spots return to the normal count. Once the Sun spot activity returns to normal cycle the climate outside of ice covered areas will be hardly different than it is today, just as the C's pointed out in one of the sessions. However, this does not take into account the cometary impacts that we know will happen and influence the climate. The post-cat climate will be much colder due to the comet dust, vulcanic ash, smoke from burning vegetation and material ejected into the atmosphere from the possible impact. If the Younger Dryers event is any indication, it took 1000 years for the warming to resume after the cataclysm, so we may expect the similar scenario here, where the natural return of the Ice Age will be aggravated by the cometary impact and vulcanic eruptions. But this is of little interest to us, since we will either successfully transition to 4D or die during the future cataclysm.
Next thing we will have to deal with after the Ice Age returns and before the cometary impact is the pole shift. Since the comet cluster has a strong EM field, it will stop the Earth's rotation shortly before the comets arrive. This will cause movement of the Earth's crust (or the litosphere) causing a lot of vulcanic explosions, massive earthquakes and massive tsunamis all over the globe. The C's said the new pole is hard to predict since it is a chaotic function, thus we cannot predict how the Earth will flip and on which latitude/longitude each of us will end up. You may prepare a fantastic homestead only to find yourself in the polar regions after the shift and you will be forced to move towards the new South or even the new North. That's why I am not planning on spending too much energy and resources on getting some land in the South, nor am I am getting attached to the land. We all will become nomads, just like our ancestors in the past. Yes, I want to sell my land in Poland and buy some homestead in Hungary to permanently move South mostly due to family reasons, but I am not expecting to be tied to that land forever. I will move wherever necessary if and when the need arises.
Wuuh! :) I believe change will happen quickly. I've been thinking about what you wrote for a long time. It seems quite reasonable. But I felt nervous when I read it.
It's going to take a quick shock to get people's attention. That's the only way people who don't care can start thinking.
Thank you, Obi.
