  1. I can’t find the article now. But I saw a headline the other day that the polar vortex has kept winter out of the eastern US so what exactly is happening? Just a weird winter pattern?
  2. people have quite the time on their hands. all forums have what i call "dual posters" lol i think its an illness
  3. I am not really worried or care about another "mini ice age" more concerned on how a grand solar minimum would affect things if it were to occur
  4. from NY Post https://nypost.com/2018/02/08/the-sun-is-growing-colder/
  5. regardless....if the prediction is correct about a long period of solar minimum i don't think we will know exactly what the impacts will be until it happens.....i think its an interesting topic because it only happens every so often and it may happen in our lifetimes....human global warming or no human global warming im still interested. the little ice age was a combination of volcanic ash in the atmosphere and the solar minimum period....so it was a few factors....im not saying we are going into an ice age now or being a conspiracy theorist but there has to be some impact if it occurs again
  6. Its pointing toward a solar minimum....so despite global warming maybe the weather will get quite interesting climate estimates are rarely spot on, we will just have to wait and see.....
  7. I don’t think anyone really knows what a GSM will do hence the conflicting science. I just think a conversation can be had about the potential of a grand solar minimum and impacts without injecting global warming into it that’s all i don’t discuss global warming or politics on forums usually lol. It never ends well I read a report from some icelandic scientists about the GSM I’m trying to find it again.
  8. Ok blue wave. I guess we will see what a GSM does since it’s happening in our lifetimes since the science is conflicting. but again everything above is referencing global warming which I am not talking about
  9. From NASA website: “The forecast for the next solar cycle says it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one. The results show that the next cycle will start in 2020 and reach its maximum in 2025.“ from live science website taking from astrophysical newsletter study page: ”A periodic solar event called a "grand minimum" could overtake the sun perhaps as soon as 2020 and lasting through 2070, resulting in diminished magnetism, infrequent sunspot production and less ultraviolet (UV) radiation reaching Earth — all bringing a cooler period to the planet that may span 50 years.” Little evidence : false ability to discuss a solar minimum even though global warming exists: check
  10. Blue wave, thanks for the post. It is informative but I didn’t post this to debate or argue global warming. Or to take away from the global warming crowd i don’t think it’s a myth that GSM is imminent. It does not have to be called a mini ice age call it whatever you want to neither you or I can say for certain what’s going to happen, if anything. I just find it interesting Your posts are very informative but people are taking the GSM thing and spinning it into a global warming fight. That’s not what I’m doing lets say this GSM leads to a “mini” ice age I wonder how that impacts our winters going forward here is what I will go out on a limb and say though: any human made global warming isn’t stopping the global cycles entirely, if a mini ice age is going to happen then it’s going to happen........whether or not this GSM is legit and it will or won’t happen I do not know If GSM happens and we have less radiation impacting the earth then there will be impacts, that cannot be debated My point: we can talk about the solar minimum and it’s impacts even though global warming exists ”A periodic solar event called a "grand minimum" could overtake the sun perhaps as soon as 2020 and lasting through 2070, resulting in diminished magnetism, infrequent sunspot production and less ultraviolet (UV) radiation reaching Earth — all bringing a cooler period to the planet that may span 50 years.“
  11. Very weird. News12 posted this today. Creepy from news 12: ”The sun is approaching a hibernation period. Less sunspots will be formed on the solar surface and thus less energy and radiation will be emitted towards the planets and the Earth. The reduction in temperature will result in wet and cold summers, cold and wet winters.” While a degree or so may not sound like a big drop, consider that during the “Little Ice Age” of the 16-1700s (also referred to as the Maunder Minimum), temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere were reportedly 1.3°C lower than normal, which led to shorter warm seasons and ultimately agricultural ramifications. Fruits and vegetables didn't have enough time for harvesting, which causing widespread food shortages.” http://longisland.news12.com/story/41693484/could-a-mini-iceage-soon-impact-earth
  12. it will be interesting to see how the minimum affects the weather. Or if the mini ice age was just a coincidence
  13. not sure how legitimate it is or anything about this scientist, just thought it was interesting enough to share.
