Nearly a foot (30 cm) of snow was observed in Quebec City in early June

Dammit. Snow in June! And that much!

Maybe I'll be able to keep my winter tires for year round...

Its Tuesday...where is the announcement?

posted on Jun, 14 2011 @ 05:24 PM
I think the announcement will be purely academic and nothing major or very different from the already known issues with the Sunspot cycles. Check out link below for academic conference this week in New Mexico. Maybe this is the source of the expected major announcement.

Here is the correct link. Sorry about that. I hope this one works.

If I am understanding this correctly, there will be no magnetic pole shift on the sun? If that is correct does this mean that the planets will flip instead?

increase in volcanic activity eh... interesting

Anyone have any idea why it affects space exploration? I may be being a bit slow here or have missed it but I'm not getting that bit...

It will be safer to travel through space since there will be less harmful radiation being emitted by the sun. If there are fewer sunspots there will be fewer damaging solar flares since they usually occur together.

What if the reduced solar activity results in cooler temperatures negating global warming and we dodge yet another bullet! _javascript:icon('

Thinking out loud a bit here, but let me see if I have this right, we're not going to be fried by solar flares but we are going to freeze n starve
. I'll take the latter as the lesser of 2 evils, at least I can prepare for that. On a good note, looks like I may as well cancel my order for all those Faraday cages and tinfoil

Just had an M-Class so they knew something was up...

The opposite is possible. The reasoning is this:

Reduced solar activity results in an overall decrease in solar wind. Solar wind levels determine the extent of the heliosphere. A reduced heliosphere permits increased penetration of galactic radiation. Similar to the way atmosphere protects us from cosmic rays, the solar "atmosphere" protects the solar system.

In considering long term exposure, extrasolar cosmic rays are of great concern. They are of much higher energies than solar radiation and more difficult to shield against.

Maybe its related to do with what is mentioned in this article ?

Star for not jumping on the ATS "WE ALL KNOW" conclusions bandwagon!.

So they went from warning us that this cycle will be a major event to oh its gonna hardly be nothing, nothing to see here move on lol.

If you put faith in NASA your nuts.

Im sure the sun will be so very quiet as its binary little brother comes trucking between earth and it, the sun.

This is probably one of the biggest lies out of NASA to date. Stay cool everyone, nothing to worry about. Just sit at home playing X-box so you all get wiped out. Don't seek shelter or anything.

This reminds me of how FEMA just sent the poor people in Alabama letters telling them that they only had minor damage to their homes so FEMA could not help them. The people in question had nothing left of their home but a foundation

Yep keep trusting the NASA goons and see what it gets ya!!!!

I just found this article, pretty interesting, could this be the major announcement?

Interesting tid bit from the Article

Hill said that some researchers say that the Sun’s activity can also play a role in climate change, but in his opinion, the evidence is not clear cut. Altrock commented he doesn’t want to stick his neck out about how the Sun’s declining activity could affect Earth’s climate, and Penn added that Cycle 25 may provide a good opportunity to find out if the activity on the Sun contributes to climate change on Earth.

same here, i want to know about this but i'll forget by tomorrow...

Just to clarify the "Major Result" has been announced? Is it what you all are discussing on page 4 of this thread about mini iceages?

I lived in Tacoma for a few years myself. I remember it was generally very nice from June on and I don't recall those low temperatures. I had an office in Portland and I clearly remember the nice weather and blooming Roses for the Rose Festival. It is clearly getting much cooler.

David Whitehouse: Next Solar Cycle May Not Happen
Tuesday, June 14th 2011, 5:33 PM EDT Co2sceptic (Site Admin) A missing jet stream, fading spots, and slower activity near the poles say that our Sun is heading for a rest period even as it is acting up for the first time in years, according to scientists at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).

Well, a mod should UPDATE the OP so people can find out the results (or we are going to get pages of what was the Announcement)

proof wouldn't come from anyone outside of yourself. i read and study on how solar systems work. we've always been told the sun is hot no its not. why is it winter when were closest to the sun and summer when were furthest away? we've been lied to about everything. we are a binary star sun system. as the vibrations of earth go up planets will appear that have always been there we were just too low in vibration to see them. in the universe everything is vibration. how you vibrate determines what type of soul would come in as a couples child, cures illnesses, and gives you esp!! listen to katy perry's song e.t whoever wrote that song knows something.....
