New York Times shokkiuutinen: Vaipuuko aurinko koomaan ?

(SUN GAZING These photos show sunspots near solar maximum on July 19, 2000, and near solar minimum on March 18, 2009. Some global warming skeptics speculate that the Sun may be on the verge of an extended slumber)

New York Times

"Indeed, last year marked the blankest year of the Sun in the last half-century — 266 days with not a single sunspot visible from Earth. Then, in the first four months of 2009, the Sun became even more blank, the pace of sunspots slowing more.

“It’s been as dead as a doornail,” David Hathaway, a solar physicist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., said a couple of months ago"

  1. Jokohan iso yleisö ja sopulipoliitikot heräävät tähän päivään eikä turvaudu IPCC:n vanhoihin raportteihin? On jo korkea aika valmistautua JÄÄHTYVÄÄN planeettaan. Lämmön kanssa kyllä pärjää, vaan ei kylmän....

  2. The truth is up there. And it is not carbon dioxide.

    Sun (together with oceans) is the main driver of climate system.

    SGC - sun made global cooling- has started. The climate of earth is getting colder because solar cycles in the future (24,25,26,27) will be weak.

    Solar scientists predict that global temperatures during next decades are very probably as low as there was during the Dalton minimum or even during the Maunder minimum (little ice age).

  3. Peer-reviewed scientific publications of solar scientists, please!
    Everyone can write as you wrote.

  4. You can find many. Here is one new.
