Sun Makes History: First Spotless Month in a Century


www.dailytech.com

In the past 1000 years, three previous such events -- the Dalton, Maunder, and Spörer Minimums, have all led to rapid cooling. On was large enough to be called a "mini ice age".

This may have some impact on Global Warming argument.

Seems quite interesting.

The implications are a little over my head though.

A century is 100 years not a thousand

June, 1913 is much closer to 100 years than 1000. There have been 3 "events" in 1000 years - 1913 was the last.

You actually edited it without reading it...

ahhh so the calm before the Solar Storm....

I think Earths planetary boat is gonna be rocked soon...

Could it be that the 'rise' in global temperature that some have been screaming their fool heads off about for the last couple of years might just be a naturally occurring cyclical temperature compensation that is part of the ecosystem's feedback to a recurring solar event?

I'm holding my breath for ALGORE to make a statement blaming human activity for this situation.

Just call me Blue!

And on top of that, if it happened before in recorded history, then what this past month saw from the sun wasn't "making history".

well, obviously not, we all know the scientists who claim that are all in the pocket of Big Oil.

Possibly Big Oil caused the sun to do this to give credibility to their scientist's assertions?

Hold your horses buddy, I'm still waiting on him to blame the rise in temperatures on Pluto to humans and SUVs.

Still waiting. *sigh*

Interesting is it not, and how dumb algore and his science pals must fell that the sun is showing them how its done.

I posted this before but some others might like to look at the raw sunspot data.


If you want to look at the recent sunspot activity data and draw your own conclusions a decent site is:
www.dxlc.com...

Individual graphs of each cycle for 1 to 20 are at: Solar cycles 1-20 www.dxlc.com...

And the last three cycles 21, 22, and 23 can be seen at www.dxlc.com...

A thing of interest to note is the monthly average sunspot activity for minima is normally around 10 or more. The last couple of cycles have had minima of 20 or more and now the average is 5 or less and has been for about a year. Also the last couple of cycles have had very high peak numbers of sunspots compared to the other 20 cycles. Low activity cycles seem to occur about every 100 years. I think this is why a low activity cycle is predicted for cycle 24. A low activity minima seems to precede a low activity cycle.

The large number of sunspots during the past few cycles should mean higher temperatures than previous cycles, because direct satellite measurements of irradiance indicate sunspots deliver more energy to the atmosphere. If sunspots and earth temperature correlate as some have indicated then we may be entering a period of cooling.

shoot, no matter what happens, it must have been because of our evil SUVs, which warmed the planet which in turn resulted in a feedback loop (magic wand waves erratically and statistic mumbojumbo is repeated without relent) in the Di-Hydrogen Monoxide cycle, which meant that negative radiative forcing was inevitable, leading to a new ice age.

*dust off 1970s doomsday predictions at your own discretion, maybe add some simulation and cut a few pictures of icebergs and snow in*

but don't forget the trend will invariably reverse while staying the same and the apocalypse will be postponed indefintely, as usual.

your air tax payments, otoh, won't...


PS: what are we doing in this monkeyhouse anyway?!

Whenever I see a discussion or article on so called "Global Warming" or "Climate Change" I think of the word arrogance.

We are arrogant to think that we (humans) are able to do anything that would cause global warming.

We are arrogant to think that we (humans) are able to do anything that would stop or change global warming.

We are arrogant to think that we (humans) are smart enough to understand the complex relationships (including the sun) that regulate our planet's climate.

Do you think, supposedly, if a man wanted to, he could "cash in" on these idiots?

You know, by somehow selling them on the idea that they could "make a difference"?

Absolutely! Mr. Al Gore comes to mind on that issue. Isn't he starting a company to sell/trade "carbon credits" for a ton of money?? No wonder he is not playing in politics anymore - not where the big money is.

BTW - Isn't selling a "carbon credit" pretty much the same as selling an "indulgence?"

BRILLIANT!!!!!

I remember that now! Also, isn't Al Gore on the Board of Directors of said company?

So, in that case, what we call "buying credits", he sees it as "selling STOCKS".

Probably due to human CO2 emissions, just like the Global Warming, in every planet in the solar system...
Boy, our SUV's sure get the job done...
