    Solar Activity Flatlines: Weakest solar cycle in 200 years

    Well the convergence of cooling factors has hit and as NASA reported we have had a -0.56Dec C drop in just two years.. That is over half of the 0.82 deg C of warming that has occurred in the last 170 years.

    The ENSO is again going cold and hopes for a warm ocean surface are again fading for the next few years.

    And now the SUN is entering Solar Minimum where low solar output will rule for 3-5 years.

    External indicators are for continued cooling to continue...

    The last time the sun was this calm was solar cycle 5 right before entering the Little Ice Age and Dalton events.....

    I was just going over charts and predictions for the coming summer and fall with colleagues and if our predictions are sound, summer will be short lived, cooler than average and the La NiƱa pattern is gong to persist.

    I presume that many of our alarmist friends are going to have serious heartburn about that cooling trend solidifying this year..

    Well, this is due to climate change.


    No really, climate on this rock has been changing for over 4 billion years!

    WUWT

    The question now is which event are we preceding? Or is it the beginning of a new glacial cycle?

    Well, here we are, in a La Nina, sun getting colder, and what does the weather do? Just stays warm.

    Look at our most recent low, +0.2. That is warmer than all but seven of the years prior to 1997 on satellite record. So, with a cool sun and La Nina, why are we still seeing such warm temperatures?
