Mini Ice Age? (Page 50)
Smoke from the end of times!
I wonder what was burning and how idiotic Carbon Tax people feel now?
We also had a major storm with rain clouds from Portugal to the east coast of England. I guess it could have been due to smoke particles
kittybobo34: The Carbon tax is just a way to get free enterprise working to reduce carbon release... Personally I think it would be way to burdensome on everyone.
Spaceweathjers gloomy summary fails to hide the fact that the sun has more coordinated activity than before....
"VERY QUIET SUN: Despite the emergence of two new sunspots (AR2774 and AR2775), solar activity remains very low. The sun's X-ray output is flat, and the chance of solar flares today is no more than 1%. Almost a year after it began, Solar Cycle 25 has not yet broken the doldrums of Solar Minimum" Spaceweather.
..polar Coronal Holes and a " symmetrical " pattern show the suns weather to have signs of life... even if the picture is still bleak,...
SWE thinks the Polar Vortex is in trouble already.
"10-15 day forecast: The tropospheric polar vortex breaks down, releasing colder weather down into the United States and Northern Europe....
THE POLAR VORTEX IN TROUBLE
When we see the strong high-pressure systems crawling up towards the north, it usually means that at some point in time and space, the jet stream flow will be disrupted, and the weather will get wild. The jet stream is a large and powerful stream of air (wind) at around 8-11km (5-7mi) altitude. It flows west-to-east around the entire hemisphere, affecting pressure systems, and their strength, thus shaping our weather at the surface." Severe Weather Europe.
It is early days yet
A number of sunspots have been appearing on the Suns disk since my post six days ago making a clear break from the long spotless stretches and perhaps heralding the start of a new a new type of solar weather, and perhaps more unsettled weather here on Earth.
This is the second time I have posted this, rolly eyes if my doubting SWs gloomy outlook in the post above caused computer land to throw a switch...???
Probably right for this winter and spring.
Famines have been connected to long stretches without sunspots but that was in the past with different weather systems.
This might also be the beginning of a modern MWP for just the same reasons , a lack of solar activity to alter the weather away from a trend to blue skys.
This was forecast before the sunspots appeared,....
"Cold Arctic outbreak forecast to spread across the United States after Sunday, with temperature anomaly more than 40 °F below average "
...ands seems to be reasonably the continuation of the preceding weather patterns...
....meaning that the old Solar cycle with its Minimum has done its work and now we are setting out into the new and much changed weather systems of the new world order...all neatly organized and arranged by Nature.
But as the Sun is now less energetic and its internal cycles are coinciding more and more.....
