This solar minimum started as near I can tell at least a year and a half ago. The first I heard of it was the report of significantly reduced protein analysis of the crops of South America last summer in 2017. If I recall there was a reduction on the order to 30% or more in protein content of the grains. That means that due to significantly decreased nutritional content the crops will not support as much life.
Then I heard the fodder had failed in Australia forcing farmers to kill their livestock. So, the crops they rely upon to feed their animals has failed down under.
Now my neighbor from Canada who is a farmer confirmed that the protein content for their crops was down. As he said, ‘crops are failing.’
Now, why would our government which obviously knows and has known for a long time this grand solar minimum was coming not tell us about it? Why would our own government fail to warn us so we could prepare?
