This is kinda more important than whatever is going on on the internet.
I don’t think strip-mining the magnetic ore in the earth really helps.
As the planet is approaching solar minimum, the global cooling (look at the reduction in sunspots and numerous crop failures, set to increase) mean that currently inhospitable dry lands might grow food.
This is why China is buying useless hot land in Africa.
Cooling causes Empire die-offs. The planet’s population will drop suddenly, over a few cycle epidemics. My money is on mutated flu. No medicine could stop it. Fruit is going to get more expensive, why do you think there’s an effort to grow it indoors under fake lights? Why do that experiment in a world that’s warming?
A lot of electronic malfunctions will mean this Victorian/Industrial wealth is fast coming to an end, since the fossil fuel problem is mitigated by technology.
There will be a standard living “crunch”, for everyone, it’s inevitable.
Subsistence living will make a comeback this century.
