....spots.

this is something i've predicted for years. premonitions were brought up earlier, and i hesitsated to bring this up because off hand, while you're all to polite to tell me i was fulla poo, you'd have thought it as soon as you read it.

i read a book back in the .. late 80's? maybe early 90s? called " fallen angels' by larry niven Jerry Pournelle and Michael Flynn
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallen_Angels_(science_fiction_novel)
and it's based on this exact thing...

and then the whole global warming stuff went viral, and al gore kept yammering and al lthat and i was screaming at al on the TV ' no no you butt monkey! we're all going to freeze to death in the next coming ice age... it'll be here before 2020!"

i don't wish to post the whole story, because it's a little long but here's the link....
http://news.discovery.com/space/is-the-sun-about-to-fizz-out-110614.html

they start it off a little more dramatically than was needed, but i guess you have to catch people attention to get them to read stuff.

also.. thanks for a science and nature section... this would have looked stupid next to the music thread Smile

The wiki article of that book is too close to reality. affraid I would have believed you, AGW is a crock, but it makes great news stuff. (My personal opinion of course.)
This last paragraph sums it up.


Maunder Minimum 2.0?

Although it might be a mystery, we have possibly experienced this phenomenon before.

Beginning in 1645, astronomers monitoring the sun observed no sunspots for 70 years. This period is known as the "Maunder Minimum," and it is thought to be tied into a long-term cycle where the sun's magnetic activity shuts down.

On Earth the "Little Ice Age" froze Europe around the same time, and a growing body of evidence suggests the sun's slowdown may have caused the climate to cool.

Over the coming months and years, solar physicists will be watching the sun very closely, waiting to see if sunspot activity picks up or shuts down completely. So enjoy the current rash of solar flares and beautiful coronal mass ejections; it might be some time before we see a solar cycle like this again.
