Climate getting progressively cooler through next solar cycles (45.93%)
No impact (20.53%)
Global warming is here to stay (14.63%)
Calm before the solar storm of 2012-2013 (18.9%)
The Sun has gone spotless again today.
It looks like tomorrow could be the same.
That's 8 days so far this year that the sun has been spotless.
If we were on the old system of measuring that would be everyday so far this year.
Yep! still trending downwards, I wonder how long it will be before it hits the bottom of the chart and if it ever "flatlines" like it did for the first half of 2009.
I'm not sure how credible this is but it is interesting looking at some of the charts posted.
Also some more interesting reading on mass gains af Antarctic ice. Quote: The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away.
Also some information for people who want to read has I had read a couple of weeks ago about the cracking in Antarctica was due to increase temperature well not entirely true.
So if Antarctica is gaining in ice why is the Artic loosing it. Does anyone know is there a comperhensive study on this between the two poles on the internet if so can you post a link.
The Video starts with a picture of the Express Newspaper...
The first sunspot of cycle 25 is seen!
I know the cycles overlap but this the minimum is still several years away.
It's that low latitude that that increases the risk of it being a false positive, otherwise cycle 25 could end up seriously overlapping 24.
On the other hand maybe having two opposing cycles together may be the cause of the low sunspot count in the first place, one cancelling out the other.
A thought that provokes far more question that I could possibly answer.
I watched it in the end.
Definitely an alarmist video, that appears to require a few major volcanic eruptions to kickstart the process before the "mini ice age" arrives. I would be more inclined to think that additional volcanic activity indicates an unstable magnetic influence on the Earth.
Does this imply that a solar minimum results in an unstable magnetic field.
yet another video proclaiming the coming of the next ice age, but with lots of charts.
How comet Honda has awoken the Sun with increase sunspots. Honda will pass earth around Feb 11 2017. Chance of polar storms from Jan 18.
Current Weak Solar Cycle Could Reduce Global Temperatures By Half A Degree
The article is written on a "climate sceptical" site, but still worth a mention that ultimately the sun provide 100% of the energy input to the earth.
Even a weaker solar magnetic field would reduce the heating affect of the Earth's core on the surface.
Interesting connection between solar activity and increased vulcanism. I'm not sure how credible it is either but a volcano in the Kamchatka Peninsula has suddenly become active after 248 years and first major eruption for about 600 years- no tremors and no warning signs!
This link is worth a look in my opinion. Make your own minds up.
It is claimed that the very severe winter of 1739-40 was caused by volcanic activity on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
