The Sea chastened by the Sun
« on: August 30, 2011, 08:53:28 PM »
Quatrain 5/11:
The Sea, chastened by the Sun, will no longer pass.
The heat of Venus will harry all of Africa.
Saturn will no longer measure it's reign.
The Asiatic part will change.

First, the sea will not receive it's normal quota of heating, due to the very low activity of the Sun, now in it's 5th year.
This has slowed, and in some cases, stalled out the progression of weather fronts.  The Pacific cools, the Atlantic sends it's heat too far north, taking out the Arctic Sea Ice while dumping too much snow on N. America and Europe.  The poles, normally isolate to semi isolated, send thier chill towards the equator, while the equatorial ocean heat heads towards the poles, thereby escaping to space.
This leads to a climate change of the zero sum character.  Out of place are the temperate zones, ripped by the collision of the new regime.
Africa, now isolated and equatorial, cooks.
The result of all this is failed crops in far-flung places, with man powerless to cope.
For every man's feast, there is anothers famine, thus the Asiatics will likely benefit as the West and Europe reel in cosmic-induced misery.
This is only the beginning, building up 5 years worth of cosmic bombardment and solar-lackadaisacal force.
There is more yet to come.

The region around Timbucktu, in Africa, used to be a fertile agricultural region supporting a large population. Now it is a vast, dry desert and has been for over 100 years (I think it has been over 300 years, but won't swear to that.) There are over 200 ancient settlements under the waters of the Mediteranian sea, that used to be dry land, which is probably where the story of the great flood comes from. The world changes, land shifts, weather patterns change, and people adapt or die.
