Research and forecasting by IAN WILSON says the next BIG ONE could be 2018-2020..25% chance
Wilson, Ian R.G., 2009,
Can We Predict the Next Indian Mega-Famine?
Energy and Environment, Vol 20,
Numbers 1-2, pp. 11-24.
Catastrophic multi-year failure of the Indian monsoon has caused at least eight
mega-famines in India over the last 1100 years.
Historical data shows that sevenout of the eight mega-famines have either started within ± one year of the year of greatest asymmetry in the Sun’s motion about the Solar System’s centre-of-mass,
or 11 years ± one year after this event.
The Sun is currently experiencing a maximum in the asymmetry of its motion about the centre-of-mass.
Evidence is presented to show that there is almost a 1-in-4 the chance that there will be another
Indian mega-famine in 2018-20.
While the chance of such a catastrophic event occurring is small, it is large enough that the governments on the Indian subcontinent
should take precautionary measures to confront this potentially

The current onset of the 2014 Indian Monsoon is two weeks late and down 38 %
on integrated all-India rainfall, similar to what happened in 2009.
Let’s hope that is not an indicator of an upcoming multi-year failure of the
Indian Monsoon in about 4 – 5 years time.
Hopefully we are better off to help these people next time
Frightening pictures here!!
Absolutely sickening !!
