Meteorologist and renowned sun-watcher Paul Dorian raised the alarm in his latest report, which has sparked a mild panic about an impending “Game of Thrones”-style winter not seen since the 17th century.

You're right. I just couldn't stop myself.
Actually, switching into ATS conspiracy mode, since it is the Elite-Owned MainStreamMedia making this proclamation, shouldn't we suspect it is a total lie? hehehe
Media announces sun's role in climate change

And here I thought the science was 'settled'.
Given that the sun is the main driver of all weather and climate,
I wonder how the POLITICAL scientists spin this one.
Yeah. Some think so. Others aren't quite so sure about how strong the correlation is.
Given that the sun is the main driver of all weather and climate, the sinister-sounding “blankness” to which Dorian refers has some experts predicting a “Maunder Minimum” phase similar to one which began in 1645 and which is referred to as the “Little Ice Age.”
The Maunder Minimum, also known as the "prolonged sunspot minimum", is the name used for the period starting in about 1645 and continuing to about 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time.
The Little Ice Age is a period between about 1300 and 1870 during which Europe and North America were subjected to much colder winters than during the 20th century. The period can be divided in two phases, the first beginning around 1300 and continuing until the late 1400s.
The article in the OP is not about the "Temp of the Sun" but please, provide evidence that there is a one to one relationship between the "Temp of the Sun" and the "Temp of Earth."

I have scientific evidence that everyone needs to study. I have charted out the empirical data for everyone to see.

If we were to enter an Ice age it would be very visible in summer time, ice ages carry winter snow, ice and cold weather trough summer to the next coming winter.
As it is now there are no signs of anything near above, on the contrary we see record warm summers, there is no ice age around the corner.
Most CO2 scenarios (15) led to an exceptionally long interglacial from 5000 years before the present to 50,000 years from now (see the bottom panel of the figure), with the next glacial maximum in 100,000 years. Only for CO2 concentrations less than 220 ppmv was an early entrance into glaciation simulated (15).
We have a repeating cycle and now you show a claim that says all of the previous cyclic history of the planet can be thrown in the trash because you have found one silly para from the 'Don't worry / Be happy' crowd.
What we are seeing now is an anomaly in that "cycle." That "cycle" says it should be cooling and it isn't. The cooling stopped.
I'll wager this reporter is not an atmospheric scientist; probably not a science major of any kind.
