NASA Scientists Fear Sun Spot Activity May Vanish—Russia Issues Warnings About Mini-Ice Age

I think we may be in for a pretty bad winter!

A storm is coming: Sun’s magnetic field is set to FLIP and could lead to bad weather and radio disruption except this polar switch is weak as are the sun spots. We have modern tools to observe a solar sun spot cessation so we can see for certain how the sun is 100% in control of wether we have an Ice Age or a Warm Age. All debate will end once we discover the hard truth of the matter. The graph above shows 100 years of sun spot activity. The earlier observations were done by my grandfather and Hubble at the Mt. Wilson observatory and their own private observatories in Pasadena. My grandfather loved to speculate about the Ice Ages and the sun and I suppose, after my father did the same thing, the likelihood both are right about sun spots and Ice Ages, this is horrible news but we can’t ignore it, either or pretend it doesn’t happen.

One thing that really enraged me about the ‘climate experts’ was when they tried to minimize or even deny the Maunder Minimum – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Maunder Minimum coincided with the middle—and coldest part—of the Little Ice Age, during which Europe and North America were subjected to bitterly cold winters. A causal connection between low sunspot activity and cold winters has recently been made using data from the NASA’s Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment which shows that solar UV output is more variable over the course of the solar cycle than scientists had previously thought, and a UK scientific team published in the Nature Geoscience journal a link that ties this variability to terrestrial climate impacts in the form of warmer winters in some places and colder winters in others.[4] The winter of 1708–9 was extremely cold.[5]

Looking at the above graph, we see that the late-1960′s to the end of the 1970′s was a period of very low sun spot activity as was the period before WWI which saw a lot of peasant unrest due to the cold winters and late springs. I recall #20 peak as it was oddly cold even in Arizona with lots of unusual winter rains. Then I moved to NYC and it was tremendously cold, Arctic cold in winter and very stormy summer thunder events.

One country that observes the winter closely is Russia so the news there is all about the collapse of the sun spot situation. For example, at we see there are a very tiny few spots at the peak of the solar maximum. So it is no surprise to see this headline in Russia: Sun dial-down: Looming weak solar max may herald frosty times — RT News

Possible explanations for the sun’s latest odd behavior were discussed last month at a meeting of the Astronomical Society’s Solar Physics Division. Scientists agree that Cycle 24 is already among the weakest reported.

“Not only is this the smallest cycle we’ve seen in the space age, it’s the smallest cycle in 100 years,” NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center research scientist David Hathaway said.

Some more radical explanations sound quite alarming. Matthew Penn of the National Solar Observatory says the strength of magnetic field in sunspots in waning, and the sunspot cycle may disappear altogether.

“If this trend continues, there will be almost no spots in Cycle 25, and we might be going into another Maunder Minimum,” he said.

NASA: We May Be On the Verge of a “Mini-Maunder” Event which means increasingly the astronomers are lining up claiming global warming will not only stop but will retreat if the sun spots totally vanish. The key question is, will this last 200+ years like last time this happened or 200,000 years as happened repeatedly in the last 2.5 million years? A good question. A life and death question. All our systems are predicated on it being pleasantly warm. We have no alternative system set up whereby crops fail, ice advances menacing Switzerland or the polar states. Not to mention, stormy seas and higher winds in winter?

My ancestors crossed the Atlantic during the Maunder Minimum right at the beginning of that mini-Ice Age and somehow managed to survive in the cold Northeast and it was a very brutal time indeed. As will the repeat of t his cycle.

The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time.

The concept became notable after John A. Eddy published a landmark 1976 paper in Science titled "The Maunder Minimum".[1] Astronomers before Eddy had also named the period after the solar astronomer Edward W. Maunder (1851-1928) who studied how sunspot latitudes changed with time.[2] The periods he examined included the second half of the 17th century. Edward Maunder published two papers in 1890 and 1894, and he cited earlier papers written by Gustav Spörer.

Like the Dalton Minimum and Spörer Minimum, the Maunder Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures.

During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, astronomers observed only about 50 sunspots, as opposed to a more typical 40,000-50,000 spots in modern times.[citation needed]

Sunspot observations

The Maunder Minimum occurred between 1645 and 1715 when very few sunspots were observed. This was not due to a lack of observations; during the 17th century, Giovanni Domenico Cassini carried out a systematic program of solar observations at the Observatoire de Paris, thanks to the astronomers Jean Picard and Philippe de La Hire. Johannes Hevelius also performed observations on his own. The total numbers of sunspots (but not Wolf numbers) in different years were as follows:

During the Maunder Minimum enough sunspots were sighted so that 11-year cycles could be extrapolated from the count. The maxima occurred in 1676, 1684, 1695, 1705 and 1716.

The sunspot activity was then concentrated in the southern hemisphere of the Sun, except for the last cycle when the sunspots appeared in the northern hemisphere, too.

According to Spörer's law, at the start of a cycle, spots appear at ever lower latitudes until they average at about lat. 15° at solar maximum. The average then continues to drift lower to about 7° and after that, while spots of the old cycle fade, new cycle spots start appearing again at high latitudes.

The visibility of these spots is also affected by the velocity of the sun's rotation at various latitudes:

Visibility is somewhat affected by observations being done from the ecliptic. The ecliptic is inclined 7° from the plane of the Sun's equator (latitude 0°).

Little Ice Age

The Maunder Minimum coincided with the middle - and coldest part - of the Little Ice Age, during which Europe and North America were subjected to bitterly cold winters. Whether there is a causal connection between low sunspot activity and cold winters has not been proven, however lower earth temperatures have been observed during low sunspot activity.[3] The winter of 1708-09 was extremely cold.[4]

YEP! Somebody better call Al Gore..........

If we are entering any sort of ice age, global warming won't seem so bad, will it?   I've always said, it beats the alternative!

Great find here Robin.  I who admitting am a disbeliever of politicians but a sun person.  By that I mean that I think the sun has something to do with global warming or cooling.  Yeah, I know, call me a nut.  Actually Russian scientists were predicting about a year ago that Global Warming was over and we were now going into Global Cooling.   They even warned about an ice age that humans would not live through - but many years out.  And I tended to believe the Russian scientists more than the paid off (insert favorite phrase here) of Obama.

Of course as we write this, clowns like Obama are trying to shut off 43% of US electric energy by shutting off coal mines due to CO2.
