Professor Valentina Zharkova’s full paper released June 24 entitled, ‘Oscillations of the Baseline of Solar Magnetic Field and Solar Irradiance on a Millennial Timescale’ has been accepted for publishing in Nature. It confirms a Grand Solar Minimum from 2020 to 2055, as all four magnetic fields of the sun go out of phase, while now also suggesting centuries of natural warming post-Minima.
An uptick in high-level volcanic eruptions is also associated with low solar activity. Increasing Cosmic Rays are believed to heat the muons in subsurface silica-rich magma (click here for more on that). And larger eruptions (ones that fire volcanic ash above 32,800 feet (10 km) and into the Stratosphere) have a direct cooling effect on the planet, as these ejected particulates effectively block out the sun.

The last time this happened was in the Little Ice Age.
Multitudes died of starvation.
Crop failures were world wide.
Population was around 1 billion.
Imagine what happens when there are 7 Billion mouths to feed.
A great many people will starve to death.
When a population starves they all run out of food at the same time.
Then it is either die or eat the dead.
Well we are running about a +.6C temp off of norm and the little ice age was about -.6C temp off of norm so maybe we will normalize out.
Until recently, solar activity was accepted to be one of the important factors defining the temperature on Earth and other planets. In this paper we reproduced the summary curve of the solar magnetic field associated with solar activity5,6 for the one hundred thousand years backward by using the formulas describing the sum of the two principal components found from the full disk solar magnetograms. In the past 3000 years the summary curve shows the solar activity for every 11 years and occurrence of 9 grand solar cycles of 350–400 years, which are caused by the beating effects of two magnetic waves generated by solar dynamo at the inner and outer layers inside the solar interior with close but not equal frequencies6.
The resulting summary curve reveals a remarkable resemblance to the sunspot and terrestrial activity reported in the past millennia including the significant grand solar minima: Maunder Minimum (1645–1715), Wolf minimum (1200), Oort minimum (1010–1050), Homer minimum (800–900 BC) combined with the grand solar maxima: the medieval warm period (900–1200), the Roman warm period (400–10BC) etc. It also predicts the upcoming grand solar minimum, similar to Maunder Minimum, which starts in 2020 and will last until 2055.

Flicks on the A/C, computers, lights, oven, heaters, microwave, washing machine, dryer, industrial kiln, baby monitor, hair straighteners and every conceivable stereo and amp I can lay hands on - cranking them up full Back to the Future style and picks up guitar....
There's only one way to combat the global cooling!

Ooh, Super Grand!
I'm in the desert, it was 115 today. So if it's going to be a bit cooler count me in.
