Northern Ontario,
At my latitude the beginning of winter sees 9 hour of sunlight and the beginning of spring, it's 15.5 hrs of sunlighr
and stupid people don't believe sunlight unfiltered by cloud cover has more to do with has more to do with any warming trend than anything else, and any unusual activity in the sun is bound to affect weather on earth!

UK snow forecast: Coldest winter in 100 YEARS as 3-month sub-zero freeze hits Britain

UK snow forecast: Charts show Britain being smashed by the polar freeze

UK snow forecast: Charts show Britain being smashed by the polar freeze

BRITAIN is facing a possible three-month big-freeze amid warnings extreme Arctic conditions could see this winter leagued among the harshest of the past century.

The U.S. National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center uses NASA’s Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics satellite conducts Sunspot Number Progression counts, measures F10.7cm Radio Flux and the Ap Index geomagnetic activity, and its SABER carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO) instruments gage infrared solar output in Earth’s top atmospheric level.

As the Earth was completing Solar Cycle 24, sunspot counts and magnetic activity were expected cyclically fall from its high of over 100 in 2014 to a low of zero in 2022. But the sunspot count plunged to zero in mid-2018 and has remained substantially lower than forecast for Solar Cycle 25.

The data could indicate the onset of a super cycle ‘Maunder Minimum.’ The last Maunder Minimum period from 1645 to 1715 was a period with 7 percent fewer sunspots and global cooling, referred to as the ‘Little Ice Age.’

The Little Ice Age altered atmospheric circulation patterns across northern Europe, resulting in widespread crop failures, famine, disease, and increased child mortality. London’s Thames River froze over most years during the period.

Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center reported in September: “High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy. If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold.”

The Swiss National Science Foundation also published in early 2017 a research paper by the Physical Meteorological Observatory Davos, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, ETH Zurich, and the University of Bern that warned that particle and electromagnetic “radiative forcing” could cause Maunder Minimum low temperatures in “in 50 to 100 years’ time.”

The United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change has been the major “denier” of cyclical solar activity “forcing” climate change because it directly challenges the supposedly settled science that “anthropogenic” releases of fossil fuel CO2 are the exclusive cause of global warming that threatens the destruction of all living creatures.

As the evidence of solar forcing has mounted, the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change argues that climate model simulations of the period suggest that multiple factors, “particularly volcanic activity in the northern hemisphere” caused the Little Ice Age.

But the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction issued an October warning that the Ring of Fire’s 452 volcanos along the edge the Pacific Ocean edge that causes 90 percent of earthquakes and tsunamis had entered its 100-year active phase.

"Global warming"? what ever happened to "climate change"?

A Solar Physicist explains Grand Solar Minimum and the expected impact on climate and our food supply.

An unbiased must see for all.

Certainly the sunspots have important influence on Earth (and the rest of the planets)

While the important factor is the distance between Earth and Sun has become a little bit less than before.

Another important factor is the change in the axis of the Earth.

On the other hand, the CO2 and CH4 may have some effect, but it is trivial in comparison to the decreased distance between Earth and Sun.

Therefore, they keep discussion about the climate change on Earth in general, but they neglect this important point: the earth has become somewhat nearer to the sun than it had been before.

Their neglecting or being unaware of this important point is among their misguidance and error.

Northern Ontario,
The reason It's colder in Kapuskasing than Toronto
For stupid people.....It's the Sun stupid!


46 minutes difference of sunlight per day at this time of the year!

What Climate Change during a short sunspot drop looked like prior to "the record"(1951-present) with 280ppm CO2.

32 more years of GSM to come. Enjoy!

Absolutely pouring here, pete.
Just as was expected and more than abundant.

I wonder if solar minimum precip can pile up alpine ice? Has it happened before? Will it happen again?

Odd that fires are nearly nonexistent so far this year.
