Cult Of Climastrology: Cooling Sun Could Offset Warming By Mankind

Could this become the next talking point from the CoC? Remember, many of them blamed natural variation for the Great Pause (when they admitted that it actually existed). Many of them blame natural variation when their prognostications fail to materialize. And there are many scientists, and, let’s admit it, some skeptic prognosticators, who are saying that the Earth is due for a dip in temperatures, and expect this to start by 2030. On that, we’ll see. Till then

Scripps: Cooling Sun May Partially Offset Climate Change by Humans

The Sun might emit less radiation by mid-century, giving Earth a chance to warm a bit more slowly but not halting human-induced climate change, according to a new study by Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Our star’s cool down would be the result of what astrophysicists call a “grand minimum,” a periodic event during which the Sun’s magnetism diminishes, sunspots form infrequently, and less ultraviolet radiation makes it to the surface of Earth. This last happened in the 17th century.

A team of scientists led by research physicist Dan Lubin at Scripps has created the first estimate of how much dimmer the Sun should be when the next minimum takes place, which could be by the middle of this century.

His team’s study, “Ultraviolet Flux Decrease Under a Grand Minimum from IUE Short-wavelength Observation of Solar Analogs,” appears in the publication Astrophysical Journal Letters and was funded by the state of California.

This sets the stage for a talking point that the cooling would be much deeper without people like you driving fossil fueled vehicles and daring to eat meat.

The reduced energy from the Sun would set into motion a sequence of events on Earth beginning with a thinning of the stratospheric ozone layer.

The cooling is not uniform. In the last grand minimum, during the 17th Century, areas of Europe chilled –the Baltic Sea froze — while Alaska and southern Greenland warmed correspondingly. (snip)

Lubin’s team predicts a significant probability of a grand minimum in this century because the downward sunspot pattern in recent solar cycles resembles the run-ups to past grand minimum events.

It’s always interesting that these Warmists can never admit that the Sun and natural variability could be mostly causing the warming, yet, are so willing to blame those same things for warming, sea rise, ice loss, etc, not going with their computer models.

    As I anticipated a month ago.

    Already making excuses for their predictions

    these (slur) can never admit that the Sun and natural variability could be mostly causing the warming,

    “You Lie!”

    Unlike you, climate scientists depend on science and evidence, and there is no evidence to support the ideology that “natural variability” has caused the Earth to warm rapidly the past century or so.
