The NOAA has a new report that says solar cycle 24 won't be as "bad" as everyone has thought. However, it's only a prediction since the cycles
haven't been forcast much in the past, just reviewed as they occured.
identifies the '58 peak.
Notice that 2nd link - the height of the solar maximums has increased over the decades? Notice that people are talking about global warming over the
last few decades? We all should know that global warming is highly associated with the height of the solar max over the years. If each cycle has a
slightly higher maximum, we can tie the last century's temperature rise to the solar cycles pretty closely.
The graph on this front-page below appears to show a cycle "less" than in the 80s and 90s. But any peak could lead to some issues with satellites
and folks in space. Good thing we don't have more than, oh, 5 people in space.
