It has taken a while as the truth has been obscured a little by hysteria but the rest of the world seems to be finally catching on that we may be entering a Maunder Minimum. The Russians have been touting this idea for a long time now, I seem to remember them talking about it in the early 1990s and they are building new ice breakers and the like and reporting in their newspapers that this is so they are prepared for significant cooling.
What effect will a Maunder Minimum have on our deer populations, distribution and stalking? Can Muntjac and CWD survive a long period of significantly worse weather, both in terms of cooling and also, probably, wind and rain?
Science seems to be suggesting that any such minimum might last for 200 - 300 years and that we could be back to "frost fairs" on the Thames and the like so the impact is likely to be significant. It will also, unfortunately, mean we have much less chance of seeing displays of northern lights.
