The good news is we now know how to actually maximise agriculture in the tropicsif it becomes necessary to abandon a lot of northern farmland, although it should not come to that.
The real take home is that sound theoretical work has easily predicted this onset which has actually been brewing for the past several years as the last heat and feedback effects from the 1998 peak is spent.
Thus a sharp loss in solar energy will be more damaging than expected and we are seeing that happening now.
The Global Warming Conspiracy has interfered with the science for twenty years now which is unfortunate.

According to theory and observation, the speed of the belt foretells the intensity of sunspot activity 20 years in the future. A slow belt means lower solar activity; a fast belt means stronger activity. “The slowdown we see now means that Solar Cycle 25, peaking around the year 2022, could be one of the weakest in centuries,” says Hathaway. Here we are at a peak period in Solar Cycle 24 and the sun is quiet but it’s going to get a lot quieter and a lot colder.
