Major Drop in Solar Activity Predicted

Okay, so I don’t post on here very often…but I find this article extremely relevant. The ramifications could be frightening, IMO. Odd to find this from NASA. You really need to read this and understand what it is saying. Here are some highlights:

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).

An immediate question is whether this slowdown presages a second Maunder Minimum, a 70-year period with virtually no sunspots during 1645-1715.

All three of these lines of research to point to the familiar sunspot cycle shutting down for a while.

“If we are right,” Hill concluded, “this could be the last solar maximum we’ll see for a few decades. That would affect everything from space exploration to Earth’s climate.”

This could have serious implications for climate, EQ’s, volcanoes, etc.

Might want to keep these things in mind for the future.

    Well,it seems things may get cold around here.
    I will have to see if I can find someone like you
    to warm me up!🙂

  2. Maybe this is their way of saying; We will no longer give you reports on sun activity, so we can blame everything on Global Warming furthering the agenda.

    I cant believe the sun is going to sleep so to speak, so soon after it was forecast to be very active.
