    In March our supplier of energy was more inactive than in the previous months. The sunspot number was only 2,5, which is only 8% of what is normal for this month into the average cycle (month 112).

    A sunspot was detected only on 6 of 31 days.

    It is well known that frigid phases on the planet are associated with low solar activity. A number of papers, for example, have linked the Little Ice Age of the 17th century to the low solar activity of the Maunder Minimum. Other published papers link cold winters in Europe to low solar activity as well.

    Now it’s sure: solar cycle 24 will go down as the weakest in close to 200 years. Thus all the news of massive snow and ice this winter over the northern hemisphere don’t come as a surprise for many scientists.

    I'm sure a Carbon tax will resolve solar activity.

    Solar Activity Flat Lines…Cycle 24 Weakest In 200 Years…Link To Recent Northern Hemisphere Ice Rebound?

    Ice rebound is assured in coming months. ENSO will remain neutral. Glow Boy will be very quiet.. The polar jet remains strong and intrusive to mid latitudes..

    I have a feeling many alarmists wont be happy that most of the US breadbasket will be harvesting just half of what they did for over 40 years this Year...

    Imagine what will happen if we get three or four years with reduced food output. Do you think any of these alarmists will get a clue about what cooling means? Or how fast people will die if it continues?

    Exactly. Corn will grow in any temperature except below 45.

    I don't think it will cool down that much, what we will see more of are bigger swings in temperature changes and increasing storminess in the next decade, the cooling might speed up a bit in 5-10 years from now, after the ocean waters have depleted enough of the energy it had accumulated.

    Winter IS comin'.

    I highly recommend purchasing a good used fur coat on Ebay before the prices go through the roof.

    The Arctic had a scarily low amount of ice this past winter

    1) It was the warmest Arctic winter on record

    Overall, this winter (as measured by December, January, and February, the three coldest months) was the warmest on record. As the Associated Press reported, Arctic weather stations averaged 8.8 degrees Fahrenheit above normal.

    These Arctic warm spells do occur due to natural variability, Alek Petty, a NASA polar scientist, says. “But the key is that they are happening more frequently, they are lasting longer, and they have been more intense than they used to be,” he says. Indeed, this was the third Arctic winter in a row that experienced an extreme heat wave.

    The arctic was 5.1 degrees Celsius warmer than usual on February 27.

    Can anyone say continued warming? You silly asses continue to bray that we are cooling and all we see is warming. As verified by ground stations and satellites monitored by various nations and agencies.

    The vertical scale here is the volume of Arctic ice at its seasonal minimum and maximum. This is not an anomaly trend. When that red line hits ZERO, it means NO ICE IN THE ARCTIC.

    Yeah... global cooling.

    And the usual suspects deny the fact that the worlds bread basket has been unable to plant yet... some 7 weeks later than the average.. they want to ignore this...

    Deny? When did I ever deny such a thing? Half the world is freezing and half the world is cooking. That's what happens when you warm up the planet and start Rossby waves in the jet stream - as any decent, self-respecting atmospheric physicist would know.
