Current Solar Activity Resembles Dalton Minimum…Weakest Month 75-100 Period Recorded!

The sun in March 2017 By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P. Gosselin) Our source of energy continued to be especially quiet last month. The mean sunspot number (SSN) was 17.7 and the sun was completely blank for 16 days. It is important to recall once again that the SSN is not […]

A Swelling Volume Of Scientific Papers Now Forecasting Global Cooling In The Coming Decades

Modern Solar Grand Maximum Ends ‘Little Ice Age’ Cooling On The Way During the 20th and early 21st centuries, Earth’s inhabitants have enjoyed an epoch of very high solar activity that is rare or unique in the context of the last several thousand years.  The higher solar activity and warmer temperatures have allowed the planet […]

Scientists Reveal How Man-Made Global Warming Is Created Via Data Manipulation, Dismissing The Sun

   Fake Warming + A Neglected Sun =  Man-Made Climate Change In late 2015, Soon, Connolly, and Connolly (hereafter SCC15) published a  comprehensive (101 pages) analysis of how the modern anthropogenic global warming (AGW) paradigm has been constructed.  The paper, published in  Earth Science Reviews, is entitled Re-evaluating the role of solar variability on Northern Hemisphere […]

Breaking: In New Study Leading Warmist Scientists Determine Sun Plays Major Role – Warming Delayed by Decades!

Climate scientists at Switzerland’s renowned ETH Zurich and the University of Bern have long warned of the risks of man-made global warming. But in a brand new study their results now appear to have compelled them to postpone the expected global warming – by a few decades! They now claim that a weaker sun (now […]

Researcher: More Evidence Extreme Weather In Japan, Global Cooling, Linked To Solar Activity

Researcher: More Evidence Extreme Weather In Japan, Global Cooling, Linked To Solar Activity

By Kyoji Kimoto I have found a 44-year cycle of heavy snowfall in Japan caused by a wavy jet stream, corresponding to Dalton and Gleissberg Minimum as follows [Kimoto, 2010]. 1. 1833/heavy snowfall – Dalton Minimum (1795-1830) 2. 1877 heavy snowfall (44 years later) 3. 1918/heavy snowfall: Gleissberg Minimum (1898-1923) – 41 years later 4. 1963/heavy snowfall (45 years […]

New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is 'Dominant Control' For Modern Climate Change

New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is ‘Dominant Control’ For Modern Climate Change

One of the oft-stated “truths” for advocates of the position that humans are predominantly responsible for climate changes is that the Sun could not have played more than a negligible role in the global warming of the last few centuries. Indeed, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) report theorizes that the long-term solar […]

Current Solar Cycle 3rd All-Time Weakest …Next Cycle Likely To Be Weaker!

The sun in December 2016, and a look ahead By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/summarized by P Gosselin) In December solar activity was rather quiet, with the sunspot number at only 19.5.  The sun was spotless over 6 days, and already this month there have been 10 spotless days so far. In December solar […]

Scientists Find Climate's 'Cause Of Causes'...Highest Solar Activity In 4000 Years Just Ended...Cooling Begins In 2025

Scientists Find Climate’s ‘Cause Of Causes’…Highest Solar Activity In 4000 Years Just Ended…Cooling Begins In 2025

“It is generally accepted that the climate warms during periods of strong solar activity (e.g., the Medieval Warm Period) and cools during periods of low solar activity (e.g., the Little Ice Age).” — Lyu et al., 2016 Graph Source: WoodForTrees.org Scientists are increasingly tuning out the claims that the Earth’s temperatures are predominantly shaped by […]

Current Solar Cycle Weakest In 2 Centuries! And Grant Foster’s “Far-Fetched” Model Claims

The Sun in November 2016.  And models coming back to reality By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin)The star at the center of our solar system last month again approached bottom with its solar activity. The monthly mean for sunspot number (SSN) was 21.4. Just how low this is, is clearly illustrated by […]

The Sun-Climate Connection: Over 100 Scientific Papers From 2016 Link Solar Forcing To Climate Change

28 January, 2017 – Now updated to 133 papers In 2014, there were at least 93 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in scientific journals affirming the Sun’s influential role in climate change. In 2015, there were at least 95 scientific papers affirming the Sun-Climate link. Already in 2016, there have been over 100 papers (107 to […]
