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 observed sunspot number (SSN) was 44.7, which was just 64% of what is the average for the previously observed 23 cycles. The average cycle has a duration of 11 […]

Austrian Solar Charts Expose “Small Sensation” …Fractures CO2 Warming Theory

What follows is a highly discomforting fact, and it’s not going to go away. ============================================ A small sensation goes unnoticed by the press: Solar activity indeed reached maximum value in late 20th century By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) Previously it was constantly claimed that solar activity couldn’t […]

Deeply Cold North Atlantic, Weak Sun Could Lead To “Big Freeze” 2016/17 Winter …Like 1962/63!

German skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de writes here on the upcoming Europe fall/winter and the unfavorable solar situation. What follows are some excerpts. ==================================== Cold North Atlantic – weak sun: Icy 100-year winter 2016/17 like 1962/63? In the first months of 2016, the North Atlantic has been significantly colder that the comparable El Niño year of 1998, and […]

Solar Cycle 24 Continues To Be Weakest In Close To 200 Years, Climate Models Overstate CO2

The sun in July 2016, and the AMO By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Our sole relevant source of energy at the center of our solar system was quieter than normal in July for our current solar cycle (SC) 24. The entire cycle so far has only been 56% as active […]

Solar Cycle 24 Turns Unusual… Solar Polar Field Difference At Highest Level Since 1976

The sun in May and June 2016 By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Our sun in May was normally active for the cycle. The mean sunspot number (SSN) was 52.1, which was 2/3 of the mean value for month number 90 into the cycle. The mean is calculated from the previously […]

U-Turn! Scientists At The PIK Potsdam Institute Now Warning Of A “Mini Ice Age”!

The daily Berliner Kurier here writes today that solar physicists at the ultra-warmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) are warning that Europe may be facing “a mini ice age” due to a possible protracted solar minimum. Solar activity has been much lower than predicted earlier. Credit: D. Hathaway/NASA/MSFC The Berliner Kurier writes: That’s the conclusion […]

Global Satellite Temperature Plummets As Surface Cooling Makes Way Into Lower Troposphere

German meteorological site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here presents the latest developments on surface temperatures. Today I’m focused on the part dealing with the rapidly declining global temperature (TLT). ===================================================== Cold June spell about to hit Europe – more heavy summer rains in 2016 will lead to more flooding. By Schneefan (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) The current […]

Low Solar Activity And Oncoming La Niña: “Only A Question Of Months Before Pause Resumes”?

Snowfan at wobleibtdieerderwärmung.de features a spotless sun and quite possibly the start of cooling now that the planet is well past the peak of the recent El Niño event. What follows are some excerpts, with some editing to shorten the text to save a little time. ============================ The sun goes on strike: First spotless day […]

Though Media Refuse To Admit, CERN Results Vastly Strengthen Svensmark’s Cosmic Ray-Climate Theory

Looking at the English-language media, one might be led to think that the latest CERN experimental results show that trees alone dominate cloud formation, by supplying the necessary cloud seeding medium. Little reference is made to cosmic rays acting as the cloud formation modulator, initiating the cloud seeding process, as hypothesized by Henrik Svensmark. Lubos […]

Current Solar Cycle Now 3rd Weakest Ever Observed – Least Active Since Dalton Minimum 200 Years Ago!

The Sun in April 2016 By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) The sun in April also was quiet in what has been so far a relatively calm solar cycle (SC). The sunspot number (SSN) was 38.0, which is 50% of what is typically normal for month no. 89 into a solar […]

Veteran Meteorologist Forecasts “Epic Cold Temperatures” Over 2025 – 2060, Slowing Sea level Rise

Sea Level Prediction By David Dilley – Global Weather Oscillations As many are familiar, the warm peak of the interglacial cycle occurred about 7 thousand years ago, with progressively cooler 1,500 year warming cycles since then as the earth trends toward the next long-term glacial period. Figure 1: Temperature of the Holocene Period. Because the […]

New Findings Show Sun, Natural Factors Linked To Sudden Climate Change, Famine, And European Social Collapse

A reader has brought my attention to more new papers. I haven’t found any mention of them at other sites like WUWT. Perhaps they aren’t able to get through the Gate of Willis. At any rate, just because I choose to bring them up, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I agree with them. I do […]

Journal Of Solar-Terrestial Physics Presents Findings: “Significant Relation” Between Sunspots And El Niño Southern Oscillation!

The more CO2-obsessed climate scientists deny the sun’s powerful role in driving climate, the more that other serious scientists are finding out that it is in fact truly The Dominant Player in climate. The Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestial Physics here has a recent paper where scientists have found a “significant relation” between sunspots and El […]
