Big Chill Coming? No Sunspots for a Month...

No sunspots for a full month.  Early frost across much of the USA and other world regions.  While the North Pole may show a loss of floating sea ice, Greenland is building ice in its central regions, and the Southern Pole core ice areas, and its sea ice, has not shown any signs of decrease.  Nobody can claim a 100% understanding or capacity to predict with full assurance, but those who do claim that "The Debate is Over" and wish to push massive legislative agendas based upon theories that don't accurately predict what is happening in nature, are most certainly untrustworthy and anti-scientific in the extreme.


Sun Makes History: First Spotless Month in a Century

Drop in solar activity has potential effect for climate on earth.

The sun has reached a milestone not seen for nearly 100 years: an entire month has passed without a single visible sunspot being noted.
The event is significant as many climatologists now believe solar magnetic activity - which determines the number of sunspots -- is an influencing factor for climate on earth.
According to data from Mount Wilson Observatory, UCLA, more than an entire month has passed without a spot. The last time such an event occurred was June of 1913. Sunspot data has been collected since 1749.
