Yes and itll be even more fun when the temp drops by half a degree.I would love to hear them explain that.

Ticking time bomb as in the storm of 2012?Dont know about that but I keep dreading this calm would be overwith and well be back to the routine cycle.

:DWhat happened to your moon quote,seriously.

Sorry had to step away,yes hoping for another maunder,all the way.

No,the quotes not back yet(add conspiracy please)

I wouldnt want to put the commentators curse on it by giving a guess.Lol I would say 1000 and it would come back and bite me in a#se by going crazy with a sunspot explosion and throwing about solar flares the next day.I guess 936,but hoping for twice that.

well considering we have seen the odd new solar cycle 24 sunspot pop up it really might not be too far away but hey even the likes of 800 would be savage,that nearly double a typical min


hey look at the vids i posted there great

now i know it concentrates on the shutting down of the north atlantic conveyor belt but combine that with little or no sunspots,

very scary stuff cause i believe about the gulf stream shutting down

watching part 2.If their data is correct then this is really credible stuff.

Yeah perhaps a combination of the two as well as some other factors are what trigger deepchills

People at spaceweather.com were getting pretty excited about that new sunspot,with its angry look,strong magnetic field and being the sign of things to come.The most impressive thing was the speed with which it faded away.
