The Sun In A Funk — Sun Spots Not Peaking, in Decline

Russ Steele

At this point in solar cycle 24 the sunspot should be near peaking, the sun should be very active with lots of spots in both the southern and northern hemispheres of the sun. Those monitoring the sun are observing a decline a sun spots, that is similar to past declines during other Grand Minimums.   I have posted a summary at the Next Grand Minimum.

The bottom line.  Every time the sunspots vanished the earth got cooler. Scientist are still exploring the exact mechanism as to why this happens, but we know from the history books, and the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Cores, the lack of sunspots are linked to cooling on earth.

Spots are declining. I will update when Feb data is available.

Satellite Temperatures are still down:

Stay Tuned!

    There is more proof that cosmic rays influence our weather and eventually our climate. I have posted some more details here: http://nextgrandminimum.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/more-proof-that-cosmic-rays-influence-our-climate/
