Yet another article featuring scientists looking at real data, rather than computer models
(UK Daily Mail) The Sun’s activity is at its lowest for 100 years, scientists have warned.
They say the conditions are eerily similar to those before the Maunder Minimum, a time in 1645 when a mini ice age hit, Freezing London’s River Thames.
Researcher believe the solar lull could cause major changes, and say there is a 20% chance it could lead to ‘major changes’ in temperatures.
‘Whatever measure you use, solar peaks are coming down,’ Richard Harrison of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire told the BBC.
‘I’ve been a solar physicist for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this.’
He says the phenomenon could lead to colder winters similar to those during the Maunder Minimum.
‘There were cold winters, almost a mini ice age.
Surely Warmists will believe that if it does happen, it won’t be as bad because of Mankind’s release of “carbon pollution”. Oh, look
Lucie Green of UCL believes that things could be different this time due to human activity.
‘We have 400 years of observations, and it is in a very similar to phase as it was in the runup to the Maunder Minimum.
‘The world we live in today is very different, human activity may counteract this – it is difficult to say what the consequences are.’
If we do see declining temperatures, whether it is similar to the 1940’s-1970’s, or even a Maunder Minimum type climate for decades or longer, Warmists will find a way to interject their unhinged anti-science cult into the mix.
Other solar scientists believe that 2014 could be a more active year for sunspots. Time will tell. The Earth’s climate could be heading for a downturn. It could stay in a pause for more years. It could start spiking, like happens during warm periods. What we do know is that Warmist computer models consistently fail in prediction. And Warmists do not believe in their “science” enough to modify their own lives.
