Do you feel a chill in the air?


T
he sun has entered a quiet phase, there has not been any sunspot activity for a month. A chart of sunspot activity over the last decade shows a steep decline. Heliomagnetic activity has also decreased. Historically when the sun enters such a quiet phase, terrestrial temperatures fall.

I heard about the absence of sun spots. Interesting. Nice this am. 68 degress this morning.

Very nice. :-)

I really did not mean to say that the effect would be immediate or noticeable on a day to day basis. If that was your interpretation of what I was saying, I'm sorry but that was not my meaning.

Nope - I didn't take it that way at all. Only that a hint of fall in is the air. I listen avidly to coast-to-coast and that discussion was brought up quite some time ago. Sun flares have quite an impact on earth, and it is an interesting topic. If global warming has any validity at all, I would put more credence into it being attributable to nature than to human actions. Nice to see something besides politics for a change. ;-)
