The oncoming solar minimum

The solar activity in a decline which that lead cooler climate on earth as well throughout the solar system the chart show the decline from solar cycle 22 to this current solar cycle 24; which has been the lowest a in century since solar cycle 14 which occur between March 1902 to June 1913. You can find out more on Wikipedia List of Solar Cycles Sun do goes thought cycles and there times when the sun be more active (more sunspots; resulting in warming throughout the solar system) and times when sun is less active (little to no sunspot; resulting cooling throughout the solar system).

Through history humans face times of Climate Optimum (eg Medieval Warm Period, Roman Warm Period, Holocene climatic optimum) they thrive because the climate is more favorable and able to grow crops and have great harvest; able to have society of health and growth.

When humans facing global cooling which that occurs when the solar activity is low (eg Wolf Minimum, Sporer Minimum, Maunder Minimum, Dalton Minimum which they occur during the little ice age) they face hardship like famine, disease and malnutrition because growing crops became more difficult or near impossible in most area because the climate is too cold and wet; that can affect the economy negativity that why empire and dynasty do collapse because cooling climate create hardships and the emperor is unable support his own empire. The chart below show the raise and fall of Chinese Dynasties. Which I got this image below form Ice age now website.

With the solar activity declining since solar cycle 21 we could be facing anther solar minimum which will result in cooling. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) will not be predict that but instead keep us the dark as well as keeping us form knowing the truth. If we are enter in new solar minimum we will need to prepared. when solar cycle 24 coming to a close. The planet is already the affect of the oncoming solar minimum like crop loss and crop failure; that is the sign that solar minimum is near. The good that we have the technology that would help thrive during the solar minimum that is hydroponics and aqauponics which you can grow your plants indoor all year round free the elements.  The video below from Ice Age farmer is worth watching and I recommended that you watch it get some information.

Want to know more about the oncoming solar minimum and the little ice age I recommend subscribing to on You Tube

There would be more You Tubers cover the oncoming solar minimum and little ice age I let you decide on that one.

And now on; stay strong

How to store meat long-term when living off-grid

Natural News
29 March 2018
Zoey Sky

(Natural News) Preppers know that there are several methods that can be used to prepare meat for long-term storage. However, canning is one of the simplest ways to store meat when SHTF because it ensures that the food has a long shelf life.

Canning meat when you’re off-grid is similar to when you’re canning meat the modern way. If you have access to solar power, canning meat will be as easy as doing it in a modern kitchen. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)

Pressure canning is the recommended method of canning meat and low-acid vegetables to prevent a fatal kind of food poisoning called botulism. Botulism affects the central nervous system and causes facial and/or body paralysis. It is caused by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum.

Canning meat off-grid and without a stove

To can meat off-grid, you will need some glass jars, lids, and rings. Consider getting some reusable lids, such as the Tattler brand, because even if they’re pricier, they’re worth every penny.

Take note that reusable lids have several differences compared to standard single-use lids. Reusable lids must be unscrewed a quarter of a turn in order so the hot air can escape while the contents are processing. Once the jars of food are processed, remove them from the canner. Tighten the rings again so the rubber seals properly as the food cools.

Before reusing your jars, clean them thoroughly and check for any flaws. Chipped jars can’t be reused for wet goods or other things that don’t require seals.

A pressure canner can also be used as a water bath canner for fruits and veggies that aren’t low acid. (Related: Curing and preserving meat in the wild: 5 different techniques.)

To can meat without a stove, you can make do with an old-fashioned wood-burning cook stove. Just remember that if you lose power, using a wood-burning stove can turn up the heat in your home during summer.

You can even try pressure canning over an open fire. Just make sure that you have a lot of wood since the fire has to be hot enough to sustain the pressure inside of a canner. If the water stops boiling, the meat will be compromised because it has to stay under pressure – which may vary depending on the size of the jars – to kill the C. botulinum bacteria.

You can build your own outdoor grill with some cinder blocks. Surround the canning area on three sides with cinder blocks, then place a metal grate or gridiron on top of two blocks so the canner is close to the fire. To start canning, get the fire hot so your canner will pressurize faster.

Since a canner can only hold a certain number of jars, get enough wood so the fire stays hot enough. Watch the fire closely: It needs to be hot enough to bring the pot to pressure, but it can’t get too hot that it blows up. When sterilizing jars outdoors, put a lid over the pot so ashes don’t get in the water.

Even if you don’t have electricity, you can use your survival skills to can meat over a wood-burning stove or an open fire.

Tips for storing canned meat

Once you’ve canned meat for your food supply, follow the tips below to store them properly:

  • Check if each jar is sealed tightly before you store them – Metal lids shouldn’t move up or down when you press on it. If the lids move, use the food immediately or refrigerate it. For Tattler reusable lids, remove the metal screw band and pull on the lid with your fingers. Sealed lids will remain in place. Those not sealed properly will pull off.
  • Freshly processed jars must be cooled thoroughly – Remove screw bands and clean the jars and screw bands using warm soapy water, then dry the jars and bands.
  • Label each jar properly – Write the date and contents on jar lids or on a label.
  • Store jars in a cool, dark, and dry place – Store canned foods in a single layer. While you can save space by stacking jars, it’s not worth risking them since they may fall and break.

Czech Government plan to change the Constitution to their citizen to be armed

After watch the you tube video “Czech Government Hopes To Change Constitution & Let Citizens Use Guns Against Terrorists” I which I found to be extreme way to deal with terrorism but it can work just for example in Texas a terror attempt turn into a failure because people were armed and able to protect themselves which is mention in the video below. Why Self Defend so important and it part of self-sustainability; why individual freedom is so important for every human being.

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about plans by the Czech government to amend the constitution to allow citizens to use guns against terrorists. This is a concept Josh has spoken about before with fellow voluntaryist Eric July of ‘Backwordz’ fame.
Though the Czech Republic which has gone through Soviet oppression has pretty lenient gun laws, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Next up? Abolish the state!
The fact is, multiple western governments as well as middle eastern allies have armed terrorist groups while creating blowback at the same time. So whether people like it or not, terrorism is a real danger.
However, people often worry about how we would handle the situation if the state were abolished. Well, if people were well armed, criminals and terrorists would be incredibly stupid to try and attack those people. The level of safety goes way up.
Though many on the left will say guns are loud and scary, statistically, places with the least gun laws as well as large numbers of people who carry on a daily basis end up with the lowest crime rates.
Then we look at places like Chicago and while the gun laws are tough, their crime rate cannot be beat. It’s so high people are more and more avoiding the entire city all together.
Society comes together when free individuals have defense, are able to grow their own and build their own as well as being insured with sound money. This is true freedom and we wish the people of the Czech Republic well!

(NaturalNews) Urban renewal on a couple of acres in a northern section of Detroit, Michigan doesn’t mean fancy street signs, sprawling apartment complexes or bicycle lanes. It means a vision for clean food and sustainable agriculture to create a new kind of urban development called an “agrihood.” Parcels of land formerly in disarray are being dug up and retrofitted as an urban farm and more under the direction of the 501 (3) (c) group called the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI).

World War 3 Worries: Why Russia Is Preparing For The Worst RIGHT NOW!

In this video Luke Rudkowski gives you the full breakdown of deteriorating relations between Russia and the U.S. We go over how dangerous this situation is globally and how it developed.

Concluded by Matthew: As said in the article from Zero Hedge about 40 Million Russians To Take Part In “Nuclear Disaster” Drill, Days After US General Warns Of War With Moscow. I found it quiet funny because while the Russian Ministry of Civil Defense encourage Russian to be prepare for the worse; while American are encourage to be distracted by the garbage on television.
