BBC – Real risk of a Maunder minimum ‘Little Ice Age’Posted: October 30, 2013
Climatism comment : The BBC’s Paul Hudson is suffering from a bad case of anti-groupthink disease. He needs to be brought back into line. Anyone who thinks the sun plays a significant role in Gaia’s current climate is a denier.
Paul needs to listen to the United Nation’s and their ‘peak scientific (governmental) body’ the IPCC who rightly insist that it is evil human’s 12 parts per million CO2 or 0.0014% contribution to atmospheric gases that drives our climate, not the sun.
From BBC’s Paul Hudson
It’s known by climatologists as the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period in the 1600s when harsh winters across the UK and Europe were often severe.
The severe cold went hand in hand with an exceptionally inactive sun, and was called the Maunder solar minimum.
Now a leading scientist from Reading University has told me that the current rate of decline in solar activity is such that there’s a real risk of seeing a return of such conditions.
I’ve been to see Professor Mike Lockwood to take a look at the work he has been conducting into the possible link between solar activity and climate patterns.
According to Professor Lockwood the late 20th century was a period when the sun was unusually active and a so called ‘grand maximum’ occurred around 1985.
Since then the sun has been getting quieter.
