This is what I worry could happen today.
“Archeologists who discovered thousands of skeletons in a mass London grave believe they were the victims of a 13th Century volcanic eruption which took place thousands of miles away,” says this article in The Daily Mail.
One of the largest eruptions of the past 10,000 years, the volcano’s gases created a veil of dry fog across the earth’s stratosphere which blocked out sunlight, altered the atmosphere and cooled the Earth’s surface causing famine, plague and death.
It is believed as many as 15,000 people in London could have perished.
The location of the volcano has not yet been discovered but researchers believe it could have been as far away as Mexico, Ecuador and Indonesia and was up to eight times higher that Indonesia’s Krakatoa eruption in 1883.
A monk wrote in 1258:
“North wind has lasted for several months, hardly a flower or bud has been seen, and the hope of a harvest is uncertain [...] Countless poor people have died and their bodies have been swollen from starvation [...] epidemic was huge, inhuman, it affected the poor in particular. In London alone has 15 000 poor people died. “
The eruption “may have lowered temperatures by up to four degrees, which is a huge setback,” says volcanologist Bill McGuire.
Tests from Antarctica shows that the eruption was nearly eight times more powerful than the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in Indonesia, when tens of thousands of people died.
This is what I worry could happen today. Such an eruption could not only drive us into an ice age, it could cause famine, plague and death for those living thousands of miles away from the glaciated areas.
We’d be fighting in the streets for food.
The only thing that could save us is our modern methods of agriculture and our modern means of transporting that food to the people who need it.
But with President Obama and other leaders around the world doing everything in their power to cut off our energy supplies … well, good luck on that one.

“If you look at the chart that put on your site about sun spot counts in relation to mini ice ages that would put it at the wolf stage,” says reader Edwin Rees.
Edwin Rees is correct. That link is here:

Good news! A publisher in Italy has now translated Not by Fire but by Ice into Italian.
