Solar physicist sees global cooling ahead

With no statistically significant difference between this year’s temperatures and 1998’s, despite record and rising CO2 emissions, Professor Zharkova’s observations seem (unfortunately) rather plausible. ‘Unfortunately’ in that a cooler climate means a far harsher environment for humanity than warmer or ‘climate optimum’ periods, like the medieval or Roman warming periods, where global temps were 1-2C higher than current global temps.

Watts Up With That?

Via the GWPF: Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun. If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately.

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. This may have implications for temperatures here on Earth. Future solar cycles will serve as a test of the astrophysicists’ work, but some climate scientists have not welcomed the research and even tried to suppress the new findings.

New Solar Research Raises Climate Questions, Triggers Attacks

To most of us the sun seems unchanging. But if you observe its surface, it is seething with vast explosions and ejections. This activity…

    randomness in solar cycles may not be fully appreciated.
