That assortment of AGW deniers, lunatics, flat earthers and scientific charlatans who believe the great big yellow ball in he sky somehow controls our climate are it it again:
I’m writing this after doing an exhaustive search to see what sort of solar activity has occurred lately, and I find there is little to report. With the exception of the briefly increased solar wind from a coronal hole, there is almost no significant solar activity.
The sun has gone quiet. Really quiet.
See, told you, the sun does nothing, what idiots.
Given the current quietness of the sun and it’s magnetic field, combined with the late start to cycle 24 with even possibly a false start, it appears that the sun has slowed it’s internal dynamo to a similar level such as was seen during the Dalton Minimum. One of the things about the Dalton Minimum was that it started with a skipped solar cycle, which also coincided with a very long solar cycle 4 from 1784-1799. The longer our current cycle 23 lasts before we see a true ramp up of cycle 24, the greater chance it seems then that cycle 24 will be a low one.
No wonder there is so much talk recently about global cooling. I certainly hope that’s wrong, because a Dalton type solar minimum would be very bad for our world economy and agriculture. NASA GISS published a release back in 2003 that agrees with the commonly accepted idea that long period trends in solar activity do affect our climate by changing the Total Solar Irradiance (TSI).
Some say it is no coincidence that 2008 has seen a drop in global temperature as indicated by several respected temperature indexes compared to 2007, and that our sun is also quiet and still not kick starting its internal magnetic dynamo.
What a load of mumbo jumbo trading as science eh? What do they know about these things, they're only amateurs looking at another planet. How dare they contradict the great one, Al Gore.
PS I like the first comment:
Could all that CO2 that AL and others speak of have such an effect on the sun? WOW.
PPS did these dates mean anything to you "which also coincided with a very long solar cycle 4 from 1784-1799"? That was the period when the Thames regularly froze because the world was a lot colder than it is now. Have a look at the graph in this story from Climate Skeptic
