Published June 19th:

The new measurements also show that the stream has finally reached the critical latitude linked to sunspot production, which could explain why solar activity finally seems to be picking up.

Activity was fully expected.

Ok, this HIGHLY suggests NERDS.

So can we do away with the debate about who it is, and just focus on what the message is, please?

The sunspot is very weak, only an A class. It's large but not very impressive. And solar radiance is down. The sun by and large is still asleep, except for that one sunspot that will disappear without much action.

Ok, I fail to see "A large sun spot will reach its climax on the 7th" in that article... or anything to do with the 7th for that matter... Yeas activity... but thats quite broad.

One time in Earth's past, it got so cold so fast that Mammoths were frozen solid standing up with food still in their mouths. We know only because we found some of them. They were flash frozen in minutes.


. Something feels strange these days, I can't put my finger on it, but it's BIG.


Interesting you should mention this...

Its true that this period of solar MINIMUM is longer than expected... but then there are other places to look at the RESULT of solar cycles and according to NASA the solar wind is lowest since we started the space program

....

A long time ago in a land at the bottom of the world, there was a lake... a big deep lake like the Great Lakes. This lake is fresh water and still warm from geothermal vents despite the fact it is buried now under miles of ice...

The last time this lake saw the light of day was 420,000 years ago...

Well this lake lies beneath the Russian Antarctic station Vostok, hence its name Lake Vostok.

Now scientist, being the smart wonders that they are, thought it would be cool to drill down and check it out. As they got close... they spotted microbes in the ice... never been seen before... so someone with a brain called a stop... saying it was probably not a good idea to release unknown microbes on an unsuspecting planet..

Ya think?


Anyway never mind the possible extinction of the human race by a 400,000 year old bug for now... the drilling gave us something useful...

ICE CORE SAMPLES. Like tree rings these core samples do not lie. Unlike tree rings they are more accurate and show warm years and cold years reliably...

So here is what 415,000 years of ice core samples are saying...



I already installed a wood stove and have two years firewood and some coal, emergency blankets and my Canadian Parkas...


I recommend getting ready for a cold spell

I agree with you. Solar radiance output is down. Cloud cover is up. Global temperatures are on a steady decline, and sunspots are all but non existent. The Earth is more a cold planet than not and only briefly comes out to thaw before returning to the normal cold periods. There's an ice age coming..

haha I just had to sneak in the Star Trek reference.

Can you imagine what Gene Roddenberry knew? Imagine if he was with us today?

His vision of the future is relevant to this. If we all set aside our stupid petty differences, we can understand, grow..

I fail to see where "anyone" predicted a large sunspot will reach its climax on July 7th -- not even the guy who interpreted the crop circle...

...And, yes, "activity" is quite a broad term (and that's my point -- predicting that the Sun will have activity is like predicting there will be a hurricane in September. Everyone knows it will happen, so accurately predicting activity is not hard to do.)

Furthermore, the sunspot isn't large, and it didn't necessarily "reach it's climax" on July 7th. The sunspot is ordinary and is doing the things ordinary sunspots do.

please understand postings as yours have NO effect on me - if you haven't noticed!!


yes we have noticed the maniacal laughter... and I have noticed you keep repeating the "largest ever" sunspot... which is an outright lie. Even your source space weather sais its an A9

A is the smallest, in fact A doesn't even make the register

And its from space weather, the very source you quoted

spaceweather.com...



There are 3 categories: X-class flares are big; they are major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. M-class flares are medium-sized; they can cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. Compared to X- and M-class events, C-class flares




Its okay to be wrong, but to deliberately lie "biggest ever" is just bad form...




On March 29, 2001, active region 9393 became the biggest sunspot since 1991. The behemoth spot registered 2400 millionths, or 14 times larger than Earth.

AR9393 was a whopper, but there have been plenty of larger sunspots. The plot below -- based on data provided by Dr. David Hathaway, a solar physicist at the NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center -- shows the size of the biggest individual spots in each year between 1900 and 2000. Notable spots include the Great Sunspot of 1947, which was three times larger than AR9393, and a large sunspot in March 1989 that triggered an historic geomagnetic storm




Ignore me if you wish, laugh it up all you want, but lying to prove your point? Just lost all credibility in my books

Preserved frozen remains of woolly mammoths have been found in the northern parts of Siberia. However, the popular notion that these bodies were 'flash frozen' and perfectly preserved is a myth propagated by authors such as Immanuel Velikovsky. Preservation is a rare occurrence, essentially requiring the animal to have been buried rapidly in liquid or semi-solids such as silt, mud and icy water which then froze. To date, thirty-nine preserved bodies have been found, but only four of them are complete. In most cases the flesh shows signs of decay before its freezing and later desiccation. Stories abound about frozen mammoth corpses that were still edible once defrosted, but the original sources indicate that the corpses were in fact terribly decayed, and the stench so unbearable that only the dogs accompanying the finders showed any interest in the flesh.

I agree with the ice age be it small or large, it's coming. History is our guide. Also don't you think that if maybe we didn't have so many greenhouse gasses and emissions that we would have already gone into ice age with a low sunspot count?

Anyone read "Not By Fire But By Ice" By Robert W. Felix???

I'm not entirely sure what you are upset about? The article was in error. That does not reflect on you but on the source and wrong minded person who was quoted in the article.

If the facts are wrong and they are, how would this relate to anything including crop circles?

Why would you want to align yourself with false information and use it to prove a theory of any kind? When something is not true, it is simply not true. Or so it seems to me.

I have to look into it. I was watching a history channel program one time where they dug up a frozen mammoth that was standing upright, and still had food in it's mouth when they examined it. If I find it, I'll post it. Otherwise I'll read what you posted on it. But I still think an ice age is underway.

Yes, I agree with that statement about the greenhouse gases. But I have already been hit by a moderator for being off topic so let me mention sunspots in this sentence because they are important to the subject. Sunspots are down and greenhouse gases are up. We probably would be worse off by now.

The problem is when they come and confiscate your stove, wood, and especially the coal
to prevent all that CO2 pollution being released into our fragile manmade global warming atmosphere. Then they'll get on their private jets to fly to their 'energy usage of 20+ standard family' homes. And you'll have to thank them for spotting your indiscretion and correcting it.

Oh yeah, glad to hear the college students who made that crop circle were wrong in their 'prediction'.

Yes that thought had crossed my mind. We had a mini ice age during the Medieval times but warmed up with the industrial revolution.


On the crop circle 'interpretation' who first 'decoded' this?

In 1850 there was another mini ice age in the US. You could walk from New York to Staten Island on the ice. I don't know what the sun spot correlation was at the time. I loaned my book out so I can't check.
