Napoleon's "fire and ice"
In 1816 the United States experienced the most unusual weather event in history. That year became known as the "Year Without a Summer". A blizzard in the month of June paralyzed the northeastern United States, and frigid temperatures caused ice to form on ponds four times that summer. Vital food crops were destroyed by deadly frosts, and sheep that had recently been shorn could no longer defend themselves against the 30 degree temperatures. Thousands of farm animals died from exposure, and smokehouses were working overtime trying to preserve as much meat as possible.
The carcasses of tens of thousands of birds that had flown north to enjoy the spring warmth now lay strewn over the surface of the white blanket of snow along with millions of dead insects, coaxed out of their winter hibernation by the first few days of spring. It was a frightening sight to behold, and many people feared it was a sign of the great Judgement Day. Everyone rushed to their churches, asking why God was punishing them with this ominous weather.
On the 4th of July men could be seen walking around in their winter attire, desperately trying to protect themselves from the bitter winter-like temperatures. The corn crop which comprised the major food source, had been over 90% destroyed by the bitter cold, and what corn was for sale in the marketplace sold for 10 times normal price and was mostly unfit for human consumption. There was no decent food to be had anywhere, and rich and poor alike suffered from the starvation rations. Young children ventured into the forest to pick berries, and hunters shot wild game and fished in a desperate attempt feed their families.
But why did this strange weather event happen? Was it because of the Mount Tambora volcano in the Dutch East Indies? Was it a product of reduced sunspot activity? Or did it occur for an entirely different reason? If you want to learn how this unusual event was connected to Bible prophecy, click on the secure book link below to order your book by Edward Oliver, and spread the word that it is God who controls our weather.
