The final time there was a cluster of opening was throughout the 1970s cooling interval related to the weak Photo voltaic Cycle 20. The F10.7 radio flux is essentially the most correct measure of photo voltaic exercise. Fascinating studying on the historical past of flood management within the Mississippi valley is supplied by this text and this e-book.

The story up to now is that a whole lot of the corn crop within the northern Corn Belt didn’t get planted this yr as a consequence of extra water on the bottom and there will likely be an enormous flood of the Mississippi valley.

Look out for summer season freezes within the northern corn belt in 2019 – 2020. Look out for summer season freezes in all the US in 2030-2031.
