Your attention please...

Due to technical difficulties with the Sun, the Solar Minimum between Cycle 23 and Cycle 24 may become the longest in over 100 years.

Thank you for your patience.

From my memory, the "little ice age" was in the mid 1600's and one theory is that there were prolonged periods of low to NO sun spots. Am I correct?

We might be in for a major period of global cooling if these theories are correct.

But the media will just call it "climate change" I suppose.

It is SUVs on the sun. Damned Repuvlicans, if only they could drive Priuses...

I don't fully understand this solar cycle stuff. It has something to do with sun activity, but I have no idea how it works.

I think that means you have a lot in common with the rest of the human race, and climate modelers in particular.

It works like this (very basic):

When the sun is active, the strong magnetic fields and high velocity solar winds spread throughout the heleospohere (far beyond the solar system). This tends to repel some of the high energy cosmic particles and fewer of these particles get through to the earth. These particles are known to cause cloud formation in the low atmosphere over the oceans.

So, active sun means less clouds and temps rise.
Quiet sun means more clouds and temps drop.

For a better understanding:

On the same site:

For a complete understanding read "The Chilling Stars" by Henrik Svensmark. His work on this subject has been accepted by CERN and experiments will be carried out there soon.
http://public.web.cern.ch/Publ.....UD-en.html

The CERN experiments are the next level to the ones carried out at the Danish National Space Center over the last couple years. It is impotant to realize that most of the thorough science in the study of climate has taken place only in the last decade. It is quite new to the general public thanks mostly to the media ignoring it.
