Here with a follow-up to an original blog entry from almost seven years years now.
It seems that our sun MIGHT VERY WELL INDEED BE ENTERING A QUIESCENT PERIOD!
A solar phenomenon as not seen in FOUR HUNDRED YEARS AND CALLED A MAUNDER MINIMUM. A quiescent period for sunspot activity to be followed by TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF INTENSE COLD WORLD-WIDE!! Those ramifications for military long-range communications quite severe. NO MORE high-frequency communications as that term understood.
As described in of all places the web site "Second City Cop"
"Mini Ice Age Coming"
"Remember that global warming from a few years ago? "The science is settled!" declared Al Gore as he rang up million of dollars in anti-global warming efforts while contributing a carbon footprint the size of Alaska to the world. Or all those scientists calling people who questioned the science "doubters" and troglodytes and all manner of low life rapers of Mother Earth? All of this in the complete absence of any sort of warming for seventeen years now."
"Looks like the "settled science" is still a bit.....unsettled":
"You might want to reconsider boxing up your winter clothes for too long. A new study says the Sun's 'heartbeat' could slow down within 15 years, plunging the Earth into another "mini ice age.'"
"Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbira University presented her new model of predicting solar activity of the Sun to the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno on July 9, which predicts activity will fall by 60 percent during the 2030s to resemble conditions last seen during the Maunder minimum ("mini ice age") that began in 1645."
"According to the published findings by the Royal Astronomical Society, the Sun's activity varies over a cycle lasting around 10 to 12 years, and is colloquially known as a 'heartbeat.' But every heartbeat is a little different, says the RAS, and none of the previous models that looked only at the Sun's deep convection zone have had fully explained fluctuations."
