NASA’s own data is showing that the star our globe revolves around is dimming. With no sunspots reported in 96 days, the sun is going dark and the evidence could point to an approaching ice age.
As the sun gets successively more blank with each day, due to lack of sunspots, it is also dimming, says the website Watts Up With That? According to data from NASA’s Spaceweather, so far in 2017, 96 days (27%) of the days observing the sun have been without sunspots.
Today at Cape Canaveral, SpaceXlaunched a new sensor to the International Space Station named TSIS-1. Its mission: to measure the dimming of the sun’s irradiance. It will replace the aging SORCE spacecraft. NASA SDO reports that as the sunspot cycle plunges toward its 11-year minimum, NASA satellites are tracking a decline in total solar irradiance (TSI). –Watts Up With That?
The Daily Sheeple’s Joe Joseph breaks it down for those who don’t closely follow the sun’s changes. He says there is a correlation between major changes on the sun and the behavior of the Earth, especially now as it reaches its 11-year-cycle’s solar minimum.
“I guess you could say, in a very generalistic sense…and I mean, this is as vanilla as you can possibly make it…that as the sun gets quieter so does our magnetic field get weaker or so it appears to be,” says Joseph. “Is there a mini ice age coming? I don’t know,” he said.
But other sources say it’s more than possible that we will see a mini ice age in the next three years due to the dimming of our sun. A 15-YEAR long mini ice age could be due to hit the Northern hemisphere in just four years as the sun prepares for “hibernation” – triggering a barrage of cataclysmic events, says The Express UK in 2016. Solar activity, measured by the appearance of sun spots, has been declining at a greater rate than at any other time in history. And that could have widespread implications.
A team of experts have warned that huge seismic events, including volcanic er..., plunging global temperatures and destabilization of the Earth’s crust will become more common after worrying changes to the surface of the Sun were recorded. Research by the The Space and Science Research Center in Florida revealed a strong link between low solar activity and seismic events.
Scientists say that it could take up to 15 years for solar activity to return to normal with extreme weather and freezing temperatures continuing until 2035. This warning will infuriate environmental campaigners who argue by 2030 the world faces increased sea levels and flooding due to glacial melt at the poles and a warming of the globe.

I wouldn't panic just yet. Had more spot free days in 2009 by a long way.
It's all rather amusing
During WW2 a macabre find was made 16,000 feet up in Indian mountains – a lake full of corpses. Later scientific analysis would date them to the 9th century AD – at the start of the Medieval Warm Period about 1000 years ago. They had been killed by large hail-stones.
What is interesting about this is that the lake corpses had remained hidden in ice for the several centuries of the intervening Little Ice Age, only emerging part of the year from ice in the current warm period – in 1942. More evidence – for those with eyes to see – of climate oscillation over the period of a thousand years.
Another story of death in the ice came more recently from Siberia. In 2016 there was an outbreak of the deadly bacterial disease anthrax among reindeer and their herders in Siberia. It was not from human weaponised pathogens, but a natural event. A reindeer had died of (natural) anthrax 75 years ago and its body was iced over, only to be thawed out in 2016.
This shows once again a window on natural climate oscillation, this time the approximately 60 year wavelength of the ocean driven Atlantic Multidecadal oscillation.
Climate oscillates naturally over a range of different timescales. Such fractal-like behaviour with time is to be expected of a dynamic and complex chaotic system. This puts in context any claims that 20th century warming is somehow unusual and alarming. It is not – it is business as usual for earth’s climate.
The last paragraph sums things up perfectly.
Take that, Climate Change fearmongers!!
How about a little lower on the descriptive index to inculcate even more fear & loathing by calling it fear porn?
So going by Saru G's graphs, we can soon expect a RISE in sunspot numbers according to the natural cycles of the Sun? We can probably expect the peak to occur...let's see...about 2030 ish!
