You have to go back to SWORD for the answer (chapter XXV). Typhon speaking:

"It was a period of great confusion as well. My astronomers had told me that
this sun's activity would decay slowly. Far too slowly, in fact, for the
change to be noticeable in a human lifetime. They were wrong. The heat of
the world declined by nearly two parts in a thousand over a few years, then
stabilized. Crops failed, and there were famines and riots. I should have
left then."
