The Earth of the future will clear up. There are several factors that affect the Earth's health. For one, the cataclysms will make changes. The Earth's population will
reduce by 90%. Polluting practices, such as burning oil and chemical additives, will essentially stop. Life, such as continues, will be primitive. Massive land changes
will occur, with land rising from the ocean depths and existing land sinking below the sea. Rain fall will be almost continuous, washing the newly raised land of its
salts. Pollutants, such as chemical processing plants, will be dispersed worldwide. And the atmosphere, with its many problems, will be reformed afresh.
- The Earth recovers from a shift in relationship to its location relative to active volcanoes, in the main. The skies clear first where this dust is in the high
altitudes, not in the wind-drift from fresh ash just raised. 5 years after the shift, even 2 years after the shift, some sporadic sunlight will warm the Earth. Those
areas not getting direct, unclouded, sunlight will notice an increase in intensity, through the clouds. It is possible even under clouds to get a sunburn, so clouds
are not a death sentence to vegetation. 10 years after the shift, many parts of the globe will consider themselves back to normal, although their memory will
be failing them in this regard. So much better than before, that it seems like heaven! Other parts of the globe, in the down-drift from volcanoes, will feel like
Moses, enduring 40 years in the Valley of Death, where nothing lives.
- Edibility and availability of native weeds and grasses after the shift, as a source of food for humans and livestock and even wildlife, depends upon the
location, entirely. In some parts of the world, life will virtually close down. This is near volcanoes, under the drifting ash, or where polar cold descends. In
other parts of the world, there will within two years be abundant grasses or weeds. For instance, the new land emerging between Antarctica and Africa, will
be moist, temperate, highly fertile, and without competition from livestock or seed from most weeds. Any seed landing there will flourish!
- In areas not in the path of volcanic ash, but affected by the overall gloom, one might estimate a 50% reduction in sunlight and crop success. For instance, if a
crop needed strong sunlight to flourish, it might barely get to producing seed before the season ends. In nature, this would reproduce the weed, but for
crops, it would not be a return. Survivors will soon find what crops manage to give a return, and what not! Another factor is rot, the moisture level, which
will be extreme. Mold will be everywhere, dampness, bugs, and those crops that tolerate damp conditions coming through, others failing utterly. Root crops,
where they provide a survivor in the evolution chain due to the energy in these roots or tubers, do not do well enough after a pole shift due to the wet ground
and mold about.
- Also, consider the wildlife and bugs, which are likewise hungry. Food under the surface can be reached and eaten while the exhausted humans sleep, where
fences are less likely to be breached. This is not an easy answer, as it depends so much on local, and what each survivor or group is familiar with planting
and harvesting, so the variables are immense. If a crop can be grown in the dim, the damp, and is not susceptible to mice or moles, yet carries nutrition, it is a
winner! Remember, likewise, that you can eat bugs, if they manage to eat your crops!
- Trees will in the main die, as they do not have stores of energy that can be tapped, and rely on annual sunlight to maintain those portions of themselves that
are live. Then how do trees survive, shift after shift? Seedlings, in fact, survive better, and many seeds do not sprout until years later. It only takes a few
sprouting seeds to perpetrate the species. Seedlings are tiny compared to the giant parent, and thus can move along with fewer nutrients. In fact, it is the
seedling trees, growing a few years after the shift, that should be nurtured, not the dying parents. Just as after a forest fire, these are the trees of the future!
