Description:

Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun.

The research suggests that the next three solar cycles will see solar activity reduce significantly into the middle of the century, producing conditions similar to those last seen in the 1600s – during the Maunder Minimum.

Some climate scientists have not welcomed the research and even tried to suppress the new findings.

Scientist Predicts ‘Little Ice Age,’ Gets Icy Reception From Colleagues:

“We can expect serious cooling.”
– Professor Cliff Ollier, University of Western Australia

A “mini ice age-like situation” is on the way.

“Could have much greater impact than previous estimates.”

Scientist Predicts ‘Little Ice Age,’ Gets Icy Reception From Colleagues

Professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University is being attacked by climate change proponents for publishing research suggesting there could be a 35-year period of low solar activity that could usher in an “ice age.” (I’ve posted previously about Professor Zharkova.)

Zharkova and her team of researchers released a study on sunspot modeling, finding that solar activity could fall to levels not seen since the so-called “Little Ice Age” of the 1600s. Zharkova’s conclusions may have huge implications for global temperature modeling, but her analysis is not accepted by some climate scientists. Continue reading »

Sun going into “hibernation” mode:

New studies flip climate-change notions upside down

The sun will go into “hibernation” mode around 2030, and it has already started to get sleepy. At the Royal Astronomical Society’s annual meeting in July, Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University in the UK confirmed it – the sun will begin its Maunder Minimum (Grand Solar Minimum) in 15 years. Other scientists had suggested years ago that this change was imminent, but Zharkova’s model is said to have near-perfect accuracy.

So what is a “solar minimum”? Continue reading »

Global Cooling - Ice Age

GLOBAL COOLING: Decade long ice age predicted as sun ‘hibernates’:

A team of European researchers have unveiled a scientific model showing that the Earth is likely to experience a “mini ice age” from 2030 to 2040 as a result of decreased solar activity.

Their findings will infuriate environmental campaigners who argue by 2030 we could be facing increased sea levels and flooding due to glacial melt at the poles.

However, at the National Astronomy Meeting in Wales, Northumbria University professor Valentina Zharkova said fluctuations an 11-year cycle of solar activity the sun goes through would be responsible for a freeze, the like of which has not been experienced since the 1600s. Continue reading »

Scientists admit we may be headed into a Little Ice Age, but keep on blathering about “global warming” (Ice Age Now, June 25, 2015):

They dismiss their findings by saying the ice age will merely be “regional” (as if full-fledged ice ages aren’t also “regional.”)

_______________________________________________________________________

A rapid decline in the Sun’s activity is making it increasingly likely that the world is headed into  a “grand solar minimum,” says a spokesman for the British Met Office.

The last grand solar minimum – the Maunder Minimum – is thought to have contributed to what is known as the “Little Ice Age” during the 17th and 18th Centuries.

The Maunder Minimum was a time of almost no sunspots from 1645-1715. It was a time of cooler winters in eastern North America and Europe when the Thames froze so solidly that horse-driven carriages were able to cross the river on the ice. Continue reading »

– Plunging solar activity threatens ‘Little Ice Age’ (Ice Age Now, June 25, 2015):

Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nosediving to levels “not seen for centuries”, says an article today in The Express.

They fear a repeat of the so-called ‘Maunder Minimum’ which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago. Continue reading »

Are You Prepared For An Extremely Bitterly Cold Winter? Solar Activity Is At A 100 Year Low (The Truth, Sep 23, 2013):

Are you ready for bone chilling cold this winter?  The Old Farmer’s Almanac and other weather forecasters that rely on solar activity as a factor in their weather forecasts are projecting that this upcoming winter will be bitterly cold.  Solar activity is at a 100 year low, and even though we were supposed to be in the midst of a solar maximum this year, our sun has been eerily quiet.  So precisely what in the world is going on?  There have been other periods throughout history when solar activity has been extraordinarily quiet, and those times have corresponded with periods of extreme cold.  For example, the “Maunder Minimum” which stretched from 1645 to 1715 corresponded with the most bitterly cold period that the earth experienced in the last 1000 years.  So could we be heading toward another “mini-ice age”?  That is a question that some scientists are now beginning to ask.

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.

From the article:

The Maunder Minimum co-incided with part of a period that has come to be known as the Little Ice Age, when winter weather overall grew colder in parts of Europe.

“The Little Ice Age wasn’t really an ice age of any kind – the idea that Europe had a relentless sequence of cold winters is frankly barking, but there was a larger proportion of cold winters,” he told BBC News.

Millions of people died of starvation back then. Got food?

Flashback:

Global Cooling and the New World Order:

“The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010. The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.”

Yep, that’s right. Global Cooling.



The Sun’s ultraviolet output varies more with overall activity than had been suspected

Ultraviolet light shone on cold winter conundrum (BBC News, Oct. 9,  2011):

Recent cold winters that brought chaos to the UK and other places in northern Europe may have their roots in the Sun’s varying ultraviolet emissions.

The latest satellite data shows the UV output is far more changeable than scientists had previously thought.
