    Loved this FOTW. Good convo from great minds

    Ben thank you for sharing those papers; and the conference videos, Kat did a great job! She is a silent hero; gets my vote for distinguished woman of the year.
    Billy that is certainly a great link you found, the rest of them are just as interesting as always… so many things to ponder, so many things a wonder, often times we seem so far behind.
    David it is always great to hear you in venues. We already know “got mini ice age?” and your work is spot on. While I will not live beyond the 30 years or so of it, I am trying to prepare as much as possible for what I will have to endure and do not give a flip what anyone thinks of me in regard. We need those icebreakers, not the wind-ice makers.
    Keep up the good work on all fronts gentlemen, you remain a learning experience for me every time and thank you for yet another great FOTW. Kind regards.

    Hey Ben,

    That Rice Teslaphoresis video has a moment that looks like a small scale version of the laneikea model. One of the clumps of nano tubes moves across the box in a similar fashion that I would imagine our local group is doing. It would be sweet if they could analyze the visible flashes through other wavelengths!

    Another great FOTW, guys!
    The tight budget I’ve been dealing with since my ‘retirement’ has been hugely impacted in the last couple of years by the doubling and sometimes tripling of prices on many items in the grocery stores, here in the central USA. I’ve been turning more & more to the ‘wild’ vegetation Earth has been generously providing right outside my door and the forest floor. Plants with red in the veins of their leaves or stalks, or with red blooms, are usually great blood & liver cleansers. Yellow is indicative of high Vitamin C content.

    A big thanks to David/Adapt2030 for his most-welcomed contributions to these FOTW sessions!
    Hoping everyone is enjoying a perfect Spring/Autumn season, as I surely am.

    What characteristics of Albuquerque make it an excellent area in the future? I’m curious how my location scores on these metrics, and/or a lead on how to do similar research.

    • bleedingfingers

      Have you got anywhere with your research on this. I’ve been thinking and trying to do the same for the past year. I agree with Ben that hail is probably the most impossible to avail. I live in an area to the East of the UK. It’s generally has the most balanced weather, avoiding the extremes the rest of the country gets. However, my concern is our northern latitude only made liveable due to the gulf stream. Therefore I’m planning to move south. Looking at southern France, they do however cloud seed that area to prevent hail damaging grape crops. Not sure if that’s good or bad!
      There is good history of people living there for thousands of years, Neanderthal man for example, but then again they didn’t make it, lol. Land and property is cheap there compared to the UK.
      I’d be interested in hearing from anyone that has researched into this and compare notes!

      Sorry, no one looked back and saw your question. Good metrics to use are: are you on a major fault line? Are you in an area likely to be destroyed in the event of glaciation. Are you in a huge metropolitan area, with millions of unprepared people. (Preppers refer to the unprepared as the walking dead, where we get the term zombie apocalypse…) Are you in a low lying area prone to flooding, when you get a mear 3″ of rain fall. The grand solar minimum intensifies all the weather. I heard of a city in India that got 110″ of rain over 4 days… Ben has talked about some of the weather pattern changes that he is expecting from climate reconstructions. So the rains that normally come to the Pacific Northwest will move South, I believe that Ben thinks it will come down to southern California and New Mexico. In a similar way to how the gulf stream that keeps Great Britain rainy and temperate will move South and water north Africa and the Sahara. Look at where you are and see if you can grow your own food? What potential threats are there people wise or climate wise? What about pipelines, nuclear power plants, military bases, or metropolitan areas that might be a target for war or terrorists. We suspect that most places will move at least one growing zone lower, possibly more. We know that the spring and fall weather will be unpredictable at best…

      I live in North Central Indiana, in a somewhat rural area on high ground with decent drainage. Hopefully far enough north of the New Madrid fault…
