Although "One Swallow Does Not Make a Summer", I can't help feel all is not well with the results of Solar Cycle 24 so far. After my read of Climate Change and the Quiet Sun by informthepundits.wordpress.com, I get the feeling in their conclusion section that they still believe CO2 changes temperatures rather then temperatures change CO2. However apart from that point, they have put together some interesting facts about the current state of Solar Cycle (SC24) and using a quick makeover of their Solar Cycle Chart (above) I have put a little light on how I believe the next few Solar Cycles should shape up in the next decade or Two or even longer!
I have highlighted three periods of time where a group of Solar Cycles were running about the same level as now (right hand side in yellow) or lower.
Two areas are well known, the Maunder Minimum and the Dalton Minimum, these two sections can be regarded as being historically COLD, however there was another period that was regarded as a COOL period (1880 - 1905), and as you can see from my modified chart it also fits in with the similar level of Solar Activity as we have at this present moment of time.
The CRAZY thing is, "Green" Government policy is preparing us for the world to become WARM & HOT and as you can see from my crude forecast it looks more and more like it will be COOL & COLD.....more to follow in the next few years!
