Study: Sun May Soon Have Four Poles … Sunspot Activity Appears To Resemble Maunder Minimum

Sun may soon have four poles, say researchers (Asahi Shimbun, April 20, 2012):

The sun may be entering a period of reduced activity that could result in lower temperatures on Earth, according to Japanese researchers.

Officials of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and the Riken research foundation said on April 19 that the activity of sunspots appeared to resemble a 70-year period in the 17th century in which London’s Thames froze over and cherry blossoms bloomed later than usual in Kyoto.

In that era, known as the Maunder Minimum, temperatures are estimated to have been about 2.5 degrees lower than in the second half of the 20th century.

The Japanese study found that the trend of current sunspot activity is similar to records from that period.

The researchers also found signs of unusual magnetic changes in the sun. Normally, the sun’s magnetic field flips about once every 11 years. In 2001, the sun’s magnetic north pole, which was in the northern hemisphere, flipped to the south.

While scientists had predicted that the next flip would begin from May 2013, the solar observation satellite Hinode found that the north pole of the sun had started flipping about a year earlier than expected. There was no noticeable change in the south pole.

If that trend continues, the north pole could complete its flip in May 2012 but create a four-pole magnetic structure in the sun, with two new poles created in the vicinity of the equator of our closest star.

Global warming is a scam:

Meteorologist Piers Corbyn Brands Met Office ‘Lying Scum’ (Independent):

“It’s based on the fact that the weather and climate are controlled by activity from the Sun, and its modulation by the orbit of the Moon,” he says. “It’s a solar-magnetic-lunar system.”

  1. Sorry, this article makes no sense. we didn’t have the technology in the 17th century to measure the sun as we do now.

  2. @Marilyn The article clearly states that the sunspot activity was not being referenced from the 17th century, but the temperatures and weather activity was. Sunspots were first noticed in 364BC by the Chinese. Also, Galileo studied and wrote about sunspots in 1612, two years after sunspots were studied via telescope.
